Tried a bottle from 2011. This is a wonderful Gueuze with a very nice sour taste. It is very nice dry and sparkling.

Vintage 2009. Pours hazy orange with a big, but fast diminishing head. Aroma is heavy sour with notes of lemon, vinegar, fruity. Quite complex. Flavor is dry with a moderate to heavy sourness and notes of apples and wood. Really nice

0.375L bottle, 2010 Vintage from Belgian e-shop Pours quite clear, medium orange to amber with big, white, open head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is tart with some fruity funkiness, ash and burned notes, very good! Flavor is fruity (berry like, strawberry), nice smooth lactic acidity, quite complex and so beautiful. Aftertaste is smooth tartness with just a bit of earthy hopiness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Just beautiful 0.375L bottle, 2010 Vintage from Belgian e-shop Pours VERY clear, medium orange to amber with big, white, quite dense head that dissipates. Aroma is similar to 2009, maybe the tartness is a bit stronger and some ash. Some overripe fruit from Brett and baryard is stronger too. So so so beautiful. Can’t wait to try it. Apples, lemony, light malty sweetness and lovely tartness, the taste is almost dazzling, I love it. Medium carbonation, very dry, light body. Very consistent in taste, just 1 year older than 2010, not much more from aging.

0,375L, 2010 vintage, shared by FatPhil, thanks! Pours golden with off-white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is fruity, tart, acidic. Flavor is sour, fruits, yeast. Overall: nice, but not as good as one I remember having before. Probably should try another bottle.

HenriqueBraga (125) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 18, 2015
Cerveja amarelo dourada-âmbar, boa espuma, turva. Aroma com notas acéticas e animalescas que são igualmente evidentes na boca. Final adstringente, refrescante.

AbouAli (190) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 13, 2015
nez assez acide avec un côté pipi de chat, couleur ambrée claire avec une mousse qui reste longtemps, incroyable rondeur en bouche, un côté bien soyeux, pas du tout harsh pour le style. Acidité somme toute relativement faible. Manque de complexité... Une très bonne gueuze sous évaluée parce qu’elle vient de boon et pas de cantillon ou 3 fonteinen... dommage !

Bottle. 2010 vintage. Radiant orange with a thin white head. Aroma is skunked unfortunately. Taste is nice and lactic with doughy notes and tangy citrus. Very bright. Medium spritzy mouthfeel. Wish I had a bottle of this that wasn’t in green glass. Thankfully only the aroma suffered for it.
