Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a hazy orange coloured beer that pours without any sort of head. It has a very tart, sour citrus fruity flavour, slight lemon and vanilla notes with a smooth yet sour again bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle(vintage 2003):Cloudy, deep golden to orangey voloured with a mid-sized and slowly collapsing loose off-white head, moderate sour-fruity nose (apples, malic acid) with bretty and cellary traces; solid dry sour-bitter flavour with a balancing slight sweetness, light to medium bodied, astonishingly soft; dry fruity-sourish finish with a slight bitterness and a barely detectable balancing sweetness. A fine and well quaffable Gueuze…

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours golden with a huge quite airy head receding to finger thickness. Aroma is very fruity with grapes, apples and grass, as well as funky notes of brett and oak. Medium body with average to lively carbonation. Flavour is obviously sour with a tart fruity lemon peel, as well as nice funky notes of barn and wood. Very nicely balanced, with good complexity. Nice, although somewhat short, finish with a balanced sourness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Arome de citron et d’orange sanguine, une petite mousse mais fortement pétillante, idéale pour les grosses chaleurs et les grandes soifs.
Cette Gueuze s’approche de la perfection et elle est pas très acide et riche. Une excellent bière pour faire découvrir ce genre de brassage.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: apple, white wine, leather, wood
Taste: intensely sour, but without a sting
Looks: pale orangy, white foam, cloudy
Really interesting and complex beer, mellow sourness that is better than some champagnes.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle) Hazy amber with big white head. Characteristic tart aroma, wine vinegar and funk, hints of earthiness - strange and compelling. Lovely palate: smooth with champagne like carbonation. Excellent complex and intriguing taste. Predominantly tart with a mix of green apples, wine vinegar and sour grape. There are richer earthier and spicy flavours providing balance and depth. Excellent beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Complex, with an emphasis on earthy characteristics illuminated by fruit layers focused on red and green apple
A golden, softly hazed amber body supports a two inch white head on the tighter side of frothy, which settles to an enduring cap, and finally falls to a minuscule ring
I’m presented with dominant earthy characteristics of soil, grass, dust, and light mushroom brightened by pineapple, lemon, and white grape at cooler temperatures, transitioning to rich red and green apples merging into sweet malts to conjure apple cider nuances with white pepper and white grape accents; only a very faint spot of band-aid with warmth; a silky light body coats and dries to a creamy pear, apple, and lemon finish rounded by light oak with echoes of earthy, floral characteristics
