3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge carbonation. Light white frothy head reduces to a thin foam. The carbonation keeps the head on this baby though. Aroma is loaded with sour cherries and tart green apples. Some funky cheese in there also. Light golden orange in color. Very fizzy in the mouth. More tart apples. Very puckering. Dry puckering finish. Sampled at heavyweight open house. Too many damn lambics today.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ the Delirium café, Brussels.
Murky, opaque honey gold, very, very finely carbonated with a thin, incomplete and barely lasting white puff of foam that left no trace behind on the glass. Fresh, zesty and enveloping aroma of tart, dry fruits, prickly citric acid and pine needles. As clean and simple as it gets, which leaves it void of true Lambic character. Sour, tart and tight in flavour. Light citric lemon peel sides, good hairy goat presence on the palate making it rough and rugged, short dressed showing of rose petals, raspy weeds, damp cellar and fresh pine-wood. Finish has a little human bile and hessian sack before it dries out fully and becomes acidic. Whilst different to taste and actually quite refreshing it lacked certain qualities I like in a Gueuze. Still, it’s always exciting to try more Lambic. (37,5cL, 08/12/04)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled in 01/2003) Hazy golden color with a medium head. Very tart and sour, very fruity aroma with apricot. Tart, surprisingly fruity flavor with quite high acidity and some lemon-honeyish sweetness. Acidic-lemony, tart aftertaste. No alcohol present despite the 6% ABV. Medium-bodied, almost lemonadey palate, although quite tart. A decently enjoyable, very fruity gueuze, with the yeast sticking to teeth. No match for Cantillons, though.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 RBSG 06. 99 vintage. Clear, light pale with white head that just covers the beer. The aroma is cheesy, horse, lemon and cobwebs. The flavor is soft acidity, lemon and cheese. The mouthfeel is soft with light carbonation and a sour end. I need to try a more recent bottle of this, I feel this one was a bit down hill (too soft).
rerate of ’99 vintage in May 2010. Pithy citrus nose, lovely lactic acids, lots of horseblanket and cheese, light lemon. The taste is just perfection. Moderate acidity, all of it lactic acid, tons of citrus peal, light cotton candy, lots of hay. Just an amazing, amazing vintage and it’s a total shame that this doesn’t have it’s own listing.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 Damn good geuze...I was in belgium for about around 4 nights and this was the best I had. Looks gold and has a big white head. Aroma is perhaps a little more balanced and tame than most highly rated geuze...lots of tart fruit, but not too much funk. Flavor is also quite mild...sure it is very sour...but there are some nice floral and fruit notes...and it is very well balanced. Mouthfeel was quite dry and carbonated.

RBSG 2006, Grand Tasting. Cloudy copper with a white head. Sour fruits/cherry and brett in the nose. Very very tart, citric and sour with cherry in there. Thin body with a very spritzy, dry mouthfeel - totally dried out the lining of my mouth. Interesting stuff, but not really my thing.

Bottles sampled with Beerded-one. Pours hazy orange\golden with a gigantic off-white head. Aroma of citrus, fermented fruit, sourness, oak, and yeast. The flavor is carbonated, yeast, fermented fruit, sour, citrus, and oak. Good body, decent brew for a style i don’t care for.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Hazy peach-golden with a large white head. To me the aroma is the most evocative feature of this celebrated beer, its musty, dusty, yeasty, cobwebby scent redolent of brasseries artisanales hidden in grimy backwaters of la Belge profonde where the uneven brick floors have soaked up decades of spilt fruits and lambics. Taste combines tartness with grapefruit bitterness to make a memorable drinking experience.
