Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is a dry tartness, mild yeast, citrus fruits. Flavor is potently sour, with lots of citrus sweetness. Oily palate with a delicious lingering tartness. Tasty.

Damn fine beer! Well worth the $19 charge for 750. Corked, and released. Aged cheese aroma, with the barnyard funk, and grassy hop aroma. By far, the best looking beer i have had in a glass. Hazy, dark orange color, with a nice, and quickly evaporating, white head. Tart, and sweet on the palate, that sticks around, with the cheese taste coming thru towards the end. 1st beer from this brewery, and excited to try...lives up to the good ratings...outstanding beer!

2013 vintage 750ml bottle with a yellow 3 on the label - This beer took around fifteen minutes to really open up but once it did it was pure beauty. A lot of acidic lemon balanced by oak. Really funky wet hay, vinegar, almost a salty briny quality to it. Huge carbonation at first and then it softens out. Lots of herbal floral notes with some earth. Very complex, changes every time you take a sip. This is a rustic beast which is what I’m looking for in a gueze, classic.

Great beer. Complex flavors and aromas including lemon, hay, vanilla, cheese, and gym socks (but in a good way). Tart and refreshing. Sorry for the vague review, but this was part of a long, involved sour beer tasting.

Saved a good one for my tenth rating. This is one amazing geuze. The color is somewhat foggy orange. A rocky white head that doesn’t last very long. The aroma: green apples, some sour notes and that typical Geuze smell that I cannot yet describe with the right words, but I like it. Taste: again green apples, some citrus, sourness. Every sip makes you look forward to the next. Can be right up there with the other Geuze greats like Cantillon and Hanssens. Carbonation... Well, it does actually remind me of champagne. And I would prefer this geuze over champagne any day of the week. Cheers!

375 ml bottle. Golden with white head. Aroma is sour, citric acid, lots of barn notes and mild ammonia. Taste is rich and full, nicely balanced acid, some astringent notes and ammonia. Very nice

Abundant white head with large bubs. Lemon citric acidity, vinegar, leather nose, with light herbal character. Lemon, leather, briney, intensely herbal mid palate, hay, moderate funk. Absurd complexity, changes sip to sip. Really really dry. Among the best geuzes for sure.

Blonde or voilee a la tres genereuse carbo. Col moyen persistant.
Aromes complexe pomme verte, vinaigre doux, fleurs et note boisés.
Belle presence meme si je n’accroche pas des masses avec les lambic.
Le petit cote aigre passe difficilement. Toutefois c’est la meilleure de toutes celles testées. les notes boisés prennent le dessus en final pour minimiser l’aigreur.
