Everything in color a geuze should be. Tremendous smell, with slight off. Geuze taste. Sour tart. Long long finish. Crisp.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden orange clear beer which turns hazy by pouring the yeast in. Makes a nice white head as well. Aroma is vinegarish sour and malty sweet. Flavor has sourness, fruits, little sweetness and something which I believe is the farmhouse or saddle leather aroma. Pouring the yeast in seems to make the flavors more intense. Has a short intense bite of bitterness on the finish. The palate is thinner than medium with sparkling carbonation. The wholeness is actually a lot like sparkling wine. A lot more drinkable than Cantillons but at my second gueuze I’m still not going crazy over lambics.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Vintage 2009. In a snifter, clear light gold color, frothy white head. Sweet clove, banana, horse blanket, nose is incredible. Slightly chilled, very light body. Dry, still well carbonated, vinous sweetness, tangy, funky finish. Apple juice, lemon. Great.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Carbonated, I was made aware of this fact the second I took the black cask off, as the cork shot off like a drunken drag racing Justin bieber right into my ceiling. Golden Yellow pour, white head, aroma of mouldy cheese, a horses ass, hay, my stinky feet, and lemon. Taste - sour bacteria, dry sand finish, cheese, funk, more funk, beauty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Christ, I smell this fresh off the pour from a foot away. The aroma gets my heart racing in prep for lambic sex - a virgin lamb ready to be blessed. Crackly grapefruit yeast that livens up with some warmth. Has orange peel, hay, barley and balls. Amazing togetherness. Pours orange with good retaining head and ok lacing. Crackily bitter finish with some sourness. Incredible profile. My mouth feels like its brewing yeast cultures after this one. Sourness just mouth-puckering enough but really its the bretta bitterness that takes the cake here. Bottle from Bistro L’Autre Oeil.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cloudy with a yellow/amber color, a bit too chemical as I would expect.
Sour and sweet smell, good coherent, not a standard geuze, somewhat stronger.
Real bitter taste with some fruits in the background, with a strange dirty after-taste (of rotten fruit?). Very strong geuze without different recognizab;e flavours.

Bottle. Extreme gusher. Pours hazy orange gold with huge, pillowy white head. Settles fairly quickly with moderate lacing. Aroma is tart, funky, very oaky. Flavor is tart, oaky, acidic, lactic, with an oaky finish. Lively carbonation, light body, bubbly texture and dry finish. Oaky, tart, delicious.
