Bottle at the brewery restaurant. Pours hazy gooden amber with a shortlived fizy offwhite head. Aroma is funy cellar stable wet blanket fruity slightly sweet and sour, very fresh. Flavor is crisp yet not too carbonated, sour bretty fruity very refreshing and has a good astringent stable finish. Exelent pairing with a lunch.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Bottle at Nerd Beer Epic Weekend, 1/26/13
Aroma: The nose is fairly tart, yeasty, barnyard funk, some earth, and a little wood
Appearance: It pours a somewhat hazy golden color with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is pretty much the same as the nose suggested, tart, funky, and a little wood
Palate: This one has a medium body, some acidity, a bit of dryness, and a plus carbonation
This one is really quite good, which is funny, since this was drank within weeks of the Golden Blend, which was legitimately amazing. Top notch stuff, and something that can be enjoyed anytime.

Paired with a fantastic Tripel cream Brie, this was outstanding. My first gueze so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. Nice, light and tart. Some funk but its not overpowering.

Phenomenal! Had on bottle share at Freakin’ Frog in Vegas. Truly unique with great sourness and complexity.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Reviewed 12/31/2012. Thanks to Momar42 for all three gueuzes (and the kriek surprise afterwards!) This was part of the gueuze showdown, pitting Tilquin’s gueuze against the juggernaut duo known as Cantillon Gueuze and Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze. Part of a 750mL bottle poured into a Cantillon tulip. Notes from last night’s Skins/Cowboys game.
A: Pours a hazy copper color, with a dinky half finger white head. Meh.
S: Now this is more like it. I’d surmise this is the funkiest of the three, coming across almost like a moldy, stank-ass cheese (in a good way). Sourness is subdued compared to the others, but the grape presence comes across more brightly.
T: The opening flavor is a subtle, pleasant sourness. Afterwards comes lots of earthy, hay-like funk (and stank-ass cheese) to finish the flavor profile off. There’s a real complexity here that’s hard to place, but still keeps the palate guessing brilliantly.
M: The delicacy and softness of the palate feel are simply to die for. Everything - from the dry finish to the carbonation - is perfectly measured. Super drinkable, period.
O: This was a narrow second place finisher - and a damn close finish at that - but at the same token, this is the only one where I’d attempt to finish an entire large-format bottle solo. Refreshing, easy to drink, and challenging all at the same time.

2012 vintage. Aroma is nice tropical fruit notes with some light coconut? mild funk and a great tartness. No real off flavors to be had and very clean. Great stuff and cant wait to try other vintages with age on them.

750 mL bottle, thanks to lamas. Bottled on February 2, 2007. Poured lively orange hue with a ring of fizzy white head. Small amount of dark floaters present. Sour nose of spoiled milk and apple. Flavor is funky, a bunch of acidic citrus fruits with loads of green apples present. Extremely tart finish. Thin bodied. Great stuff, refreshing.

Pours a mixture of light and dark oranges with a thin evenly distributed white lacing. High carbonation is apparent as C02 rises to the surface. virtually no flocculation. The aroma consists of notes of vinegar and barnyard. So clean, so perfect and so fantastic
