UPDATED: FEB 4, 2014 A lambic with a touch of apricot. Tastes like a perpetual battle between sweet and sour, though without a clear winner.

Another great gueuze. I like the style of this beer very much. The bottle is plain and simple, and the beer is enjoyable.

33cl bottle shared at The Cad’s 10yr anniversary celebration at CBC Clerkenwell, London. 1966 vintage. Huge thanks to the man himself! After carefully removing the dark brown lightly mouldy cork, a dark caramel colored flat nectar is poured in an original Belle-Vue old-style glass. Really looks like a faro. Anyways, nose and taste are very similar and both share the joy of strong oxidised notes of soy sauce, white dessert wine, vinegar, caramel and most of all vermouth. Light to medium bodied, completely flat. Great experience, funny beer to try and in no way offensive, so great overall.

25 cl. bottle @ home. Pours hazy amber, almost no foam. Fruity aroma, mostly oranges and apple. Tastes very sweet, palate is very watery, with almost no aftertaste. Reminds me why I don’t like this kind of beer.

Maakun (1156) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2015
Bottle at home. Clear amber with small white head. Dried fruits, orange, cinnamon, cumin, sour lemon juice. Taste is medium sweet and medium sour, lasting astringent finish. Medium bodied. Not true to the style, but actually not that bad.

Bottle share at the Cad’s 10 year tasting, thanks to the man himself. 1966 vintage. At 49 years old, I think this is the oldest beer I’ve ever had. Hazy orange, no head at all. Aroma is musty, sherry, lots of sweet apple. Body is medium, totally smooth, no real carbonation. Taste is apple juice, ice tea, totally smooth, dry finish. No dodgy flavours which, considering its age, is quite amazing.

PlutonowyMan (75) - POLAND - MAR 31, 2015
Kolor pi?kny,  herbaciany, klarowny, "smaczny".Piana spora z du?ymi oczkami w kolorze z?amanej bieli,  nie utrzymuje si? zbyt d?ugo, jednak jej ?lad pozostaje w szkle do samego ko?ca . Aromat winny, octowy, owocowy. Z owoców dominuj? czerwone porzeczki, m?ody agrest, gdzie? w tle ?okciami rozpycha si? brzoskwinia. Jest kwas.Pierwszy ?yk i ... wcale nie jest taaaaaak kwa?no.  Tym razem do g?osu dochodz? wi?nie które racz? nas swoj? kwa?no?ci?,  pó?niej maliny ze swoj? s?odycz? i wreszcie delikatnie m?ody agrest kwa?ny i trawiasty. Brzoskwinie niestety nie przebi?y si? i pozostawi?y swój ?lad tylko w aromacie, nie na te? ?ladu po winno octowych nutach, co wed?ug mnie bardzo uspokoi?o trunek. Piwo jest bardzo fajnie zbalansowane, nie jest cierpkie,  nie odrzuca, super. Reasumuj?c Gueuze od Belle-Vue jest bardzo delikatne, "mi?kkie", pijalne, brakuje mu mo?e troch? pazura (nie jest bardzo kwa?ne) i akcentów wiejskich,  które s? tak charakterystyczne dla tych trunków, ale jest bardzo, bardzo dobre. Dla tych co nigdy nie próbowali Gueuze na start idealne.

NosirIwont (2050) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. 5.5%. Best before 01.05.15. Pours a clear, dull golden with an off-white head. Decent lacing. Aroma is tart and sweetish, with malt and a spicy note (lavender?), and hops deep down. Flavour is sweet, fruity and a bit perfumy, with a yeast note as well. Same finish, dryish. Overall meh – not very gueuze-like. Boring. 28.02.15.

Colour is copper-like, combined with a white, foamy head. Taste and smell reminds me of an old geuze, which has been sweetened, but not as much as a faro though. There’s also not much in the aftertaste. Good alternative for a regular pilsner, but nothing more.

Aroma reminds me some drink which i used to consume during teenager time in night clubs - so called saku blue (beer plus spirite plus curacao). rocky head, white foam, amber, medium sourness, medium sweetness,
