Une très belle gueuze puissant, typée, longue et complexe avec une superbe finale acidulée et amère.

Cybercat (4077) - Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Pours slightly hazy amber with a thick but effervescent eggshell head. Crisp, malty aroma has a strong overtone of sour apple and pear. Dry flavor is strong and fairly tart, but not make-your-face-do-aerobics tart, just enough to tickle the palate. Notes of pear, malt and even butterscotch provide backup notes. Texture has firm body, if not much fizz. "Geuze" down well on a hot, sticky day.

Saeglopur (1110) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle, 2010 vintage, shared by Cuso at Bratislava Slovak-Austrian RB Tasting, thanks!
Bright orange, clear body, with a big, frothy, off-white head.
Pretty tart aroma, with barrel, barnyard, funk, sour apples, grass, earth.
Taste is sour, tart, dry, with pears, sour apples, barnyard, wood, barrel, some candy, some berries.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes sour, dry, fruity, with lots of pears again, wood, sweet barrel.

Very nice. The nose a bit too tart for my taste, but the taste is very enjoyable, with lovely pear notes sticking out for me. Tasty Gueuze, but not among my favourites.

umich03jm (2836) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2015
2011 bottle. Aroma is pretty funky. Nice yogurt and cheese, light horseblanket, some lemon and white grape. Tastes nice and tart. Moderately sour. More lemony than the aroma suggests. Good funkiness. Very dry. High fizzy carbonation. Good gueuze. Just enough funk to make me want to revisit later and a nice price tag.

wiwetu (83) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Aromaty cytrusowe, białego wina, stajenki. Smak - niezły kwach połączony z solidnym winnym i lekko goryczkowym finiszem. alkohol dobrze ukryty, ale daje o sobie znać przyjemnie grzejąc gardełko. Świetne, wytrawne piwo. Dobra cena.

Awesome sour beer in bruges. 2011 vintage sour geuze blend. Bartender explained that it's spontaneously fermented and blended after five years aging. Golden, sour, smooth, delish
