375ml bottle, pours hazy golden brown, fizzy, with a small bubbly head. Aroma is caramel, lemon zest, herbal. Classic geuze taste. Body is light, texture is light, carbonation is lively. Strong for a geuze and the abv not noticeable.

leolevorin (2) - sao paulo, BRAZIL - SEP 25, 2014 does not count
Amarelo brilhante com boa formação de espuma e persistência. No aroma as notas animalescas de estabulo e couro aparecem em primeiro plano além de notas de frutas como abacaxi e maça verde. Notas condimentadas, como cravo e pimenta do reino, e castanha de caju completam a incrível complexidade sensorial deste exemplar. No sabor , esta cerveja seca e de corpo baixo, a acidez se sobressai com notas cítricas de limão e laranja azeda, um pouco de condimento, coentro e pimenta do reino, também é notado além da presença de um off flavor (isovalérico), que neste caso é pertinente ao estilo, remetendo a sabores de queijo parmesão. O sabor residual é de acidez cítrica acompanhado de um estimulo à salivação. A Mariage Parfait é uma excelente representante das grandes cervejas belgas do estilo Gueuse.

jphartley (16) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2014
2010 Vintage. 1/2 Champagne Bottle from Sterk Avondverkoop Amsterdam. The aroma as it comes out of the bottle are oak and bread with a hint of sweetness. Really nice smell overall. The oak is perfectly in balance. The taste has some sharp sourness, but this is very well balanced by the overall sweetness and the relatively high alcohol percentage for this variety of beer (8%). The oak is there but doesn’t dominate. This is one of my favourite Geuzes. And at the price they are selling it at Sterk Avondverkoop (3.85 Euro) it is a bargain for a 4 year old beer.

crlnts (306) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Dark golden clear. Flavor profile is not far from the oude gueuze 3 fonteinen, with less character. Light bitterness. And some kind of light sweetness.

"Stronger and just a little more darker orange golden than most. Stinky cheese and lemons the main players, light olive, heavy carbonation. Good, not quite great...."
