4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Big pop of the cork. Huge frothy gushing white head. Deep golden yellow pour. Big lemon zest, brett, and foggy wood aromas. Not overly tart or sour, with reserved lemon, tangerine, and other assorted citrus flavors. Highlights of brett, lowlights of damp wood. Slightly acidic. Medium body, with surprisingly balanced carbonation. A tip of the cap to Armand as he truly is the master.......

Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Cloudy dirty yellow/orange-brown body, thin off-white ring. Wheaty, grassy nose, tart and lactic, with noes of lemon and sharp, dusty wood. Dry, tart body with lemon pulp, dust, and cobwebs, grassy. Light, dry, and tart but not too sour. Expectedly excellent.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at ’t Antwaerps Bierhuiske (Antwerp, Belgium)
Aroma: Brett, lemon, basement aromas
Appearance: Amber in color, slightly hazy from sediment
Taste: Very sour, but not overpoweringly so. It’s somewhat offset by a sweeter finish
Palate: light body, thin texture, and a lively carbonation despite a mostly absent head
I had been looking forward to trying this one for a while and am very happy that I finally had the chance. That said, the price is a little exaggerated considering its not a big step up from the Oude Geuze.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
$22.00/375 ml green bottle. Hazy golden with a small head. The aroma is spicy, and sour. It also has aromas of lemons, green apples, and bubblegum. It’s really smooth and almost delicate. The taste has more lemons with a sharp acidic middle. There is also a funkiness that shows itself more as the beer warms. It’s well carbonated with a sparkly mouthfeel and finishes with an oaky dryness. A very good geuze and I like the concept. Although I would reach for a more affordable option of a comparable tasting gueze when given the chance.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a very hazy golden orange with huge slightly offwhite head. Took forever to get it into the glass. Aromas are dominated by sweet sour apples, lots of burnt rubber like funk and sharp lemony acidity. Slightly bitter taste with plenty of lemony acidity to finish. Medium mouthfeel.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Yellow, light orange with sediment, good carbonation. Nose has malts, sour apple, funk, horseys. Body is sharp, acidic, with some vinous tones. The funk is soft and mellow, but strongly present, old like a good horsey wine (e.g. cht. musar). A bit mouth drying and sharp on the fruityness, otherwise perfect.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Elle est dorée, voilée et coiffée d’une mousse impeccable, qui se résorbe lentement en lui laissant une dentelle écumeuse aux parois. Odeurs très agréables, on sent la levure sauvage, des fruits acidulés, comme le fruit de la passion, de pommes surettes et certaines sortes d’oranges, dans un assortiment de bois franc et de bois vert. La palette des saveurs est fidèle aux arômes. L’acidité est très prononcée et s’empare, littéralement, de toutes les papilles gustatives. Une amertume ou encore une âcreté sont présentes en arrière-goût. (484-121212)

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color lambic with a large foamy head with great retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma of light funk with some tart green apple notes. Taste is a complex and refreshing at the same time mix between some funk and green apple notes with light tart finish. Acidity level if so well balanced. Body is quite full with super great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed and super enjoyable and also somewhat reminiscent of Girardin gueuze. .
