2009 bottle. Classic leathery barnyard notes leap from the aroma with straw and lemony touches. Flavour adds a lot distinct acidity and a lingering mix of tart and breadinesd

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2009 Bottle. Bose is dry, musty, honey, slight lemon, a little cheese, slight lime rind. Complex but also very soft and doesn’t last. Taste is green apples, leading to sour green apples and a very lemony finish with wood and leather tones.
It’s a really nice geuze, which is blended to be a very complete, and smooth drink. It’s good but I miss the jagged edges you can find in other examples.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2007 Vintage. 375ml poured into a snifter glass.
A: Hazy Golden Straw/Orangish Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head, Some Lacing
S: Musty, Hay, Earthy, Mild Lemon
T: Musty Lemons, Medicine, Mildly Funky
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Dank, Mildly Bitter
Overall, it is okay for the price but for a few bucks more, there are much better options out there (3F Oude Gueze or Lindemans Cuvee Rene).

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
’07 bottle thanks to scotchzi! Pours a hazy yellow with fluffy white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is lactic sourness and dusty earth. Taste follows, less dust and more spicy esters. Hint of boozy burn, but covered slightly by the sour. Nice stuff!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured in official boon glass. Light orange amber with short lasting white head. Aroma of sour white grapes, basement and citrus maybe some wood? Taste is sour tart grape. Sparkling white winelike, and lemony vinegar. Dry thin mouthfeel with a pretty high carbonation making you burp out of the blue. Overall nice beer for a hot day. Liked it but has me finding out Geuze might not be my favorite style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2013 2008 bottle.
Golden, little bit hazy, small but long lasting foam
Incredible aroma, vinegar or acid, rotten fruits, wet wood, earthy? Very lightly bitter, medium sourness, little bit sweet, tart; medium body, little metallic feel, not thin nor thick, average(+) carbonation, long tartish finish,
Overall: intense aroma, very nice taste, good in every way
Update: 2006 bottle (thx to Janek_Poducha and geophagus): aroma slightly weaker than in 2008 (weird?) but the rest is at the same high level
