Pours thick unclear amber with a big creamy beige head and decent lacing. Aroma brings sweet yeasty notes with a little sweet tart Belgian candi sugar. Flavor brings tart sweet yeast do balanced and delicious, dry yet juicy at the same time. Wow!!! Body is carbonated perfectly and will hold for a while I am sure.

I’ve had this a few times now - small samples at tastings. Finally pulled a bottle from the cellar to share with my wife tonight. So glad I did... The beer appears golden colored, light, hazy straw. The head is pure white, fluffy, and thick, measuring nearly two inches. The flavor is unbelievable. Light and refreshing. Simple yet complex. Hay, grass, lovely citrus. The acidity is so mild and delicate, the beer is slammable. On par with Loerik and J&J Blauw as one of the best gueuze lambics I have had. I could drink an inordinate amount of this, if only that were possible. Amazing. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-28-2012

Fratto (2654) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle shared at Chad’s birthday. Light pour with a white head. Aroma is grainy and kinda weird. Taste is hay, cereal, and more graininess. Actually kinda good.

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
Flaske: Orange uklar øl med et stort skumhoved. Klassisk sur duft med hestedække. Klassisk drie fonteinen, klassisk geuze. Smagen er afrundet sur. Fantastisk øl.

RexTalionis (2603) - FINLAND - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle 75 cl, BBE 2020. Pours hazy orange in color with a frothy whitish head. Notes of apples, vinegar and light stable. Creamy mouthfeel. Very sophisticated. The sharpness of geueze is for sure there, but yet it feels so smooth in taste. Creamy, apples in aftertaste and some garden almost spicyness is there. Nice slightly sour finish.

pineypower (2540) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Huge thanks to whoever brought this to RBSG. Pours out a cloudy moderate hue of amber with a small whitish-gray head. Aroma is of some sour tartness, wood and barnyard. Taste is sour, tart, earth, light leather, wood. Lots going on with a ton of balance. Really starting to like this style.

beastiefan2k (2523) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Side by side with the Zomer and later a November ’08 bottling of the regular Oude Geuze. Color is thick golden to light orange, cannot see through it. Thick head that sticks around for a while. 3F house character here is more of a burnt-fire tire, like a match to rubber. Flavor has a strong tart kick and a long long drying tart aftertaste. Dry and slight more tart than the Lente. Shared by Matt, thank you thank you sooo muchhhh.

BenH (2495) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle. Amber with white head. Aroma is full on funk, 3 fonteinen house character, musty, earthy, almost smokey. Taste is more of the same, funky, musty. Moderate sour with a long finish. Top stuff

50belair (2488) - Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Bottle. Pale orange pour with a huge white head. A bit of a gusher. All kinds of lemon zest, mild funk, and citrus aromas. The taste pretty much follow suit. A very polished geuze with fantastic balance. Kudos Armand.....

Aniela (2462) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2011
Bottle at home in Skövde. Golden hazy beer with a small head. Fruity, hoppy with some pineapplearoma. Grassy, citrus, fruity flavor.
