3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the Map Room. At 8% abv, I thought this perhaps a shade too strong for a Gueuze, thereby compromising the style’s characteristic dryness. Color is a hazy golden/dirty green w/ a ring of white froth; aroma ha chickpeas, slightly metallic, horse blanket and some sweaty esters. Flavor is sweetish, sour and funky, ending w/ some nuts and Brie. Pretty nicely balanced, but not dry enough for my taste- there are better Gueuze’s out there, although this is tasty enough.

Bottle. Bit hazy deep golden body with a fluffy big white head. Very citric aroma with some vinegar notes as well as barnyard. Very sour and citric flavour with some unpleasant metallic notes. Medium bodied. Alcohol very well hidden.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2011 Straw colored. Lemon juice aroma. Very tart flavor from the start to the finish. Very acidic. The finish is dry and dirty.....in the best way possible. Jeez, I effing love Gueuze.
Re-rate: perfect balance of sour and dry. I love this......

Thanks to rustychiles for the share on this one. Aroma of vinegar and sweet sweet sourness. A nice barnyard funk of cheesiness and horse blanket. Goes down fairly smooth, yet not as complex as the regular geuze to me. Pretty descent, but rather straightforward and uninteresting.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Opens with a pop. Pours out clear golden with lots of foam. Taste is tart and dry with some funk. Citirus and sour cider flavors are crisp and refreshing. Great Gueze.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bright orange, next to no head. Cloudberry, cranberry, sour apple in aroma, cranberry also reappears in finish. Slightly sweet yet sour. With yeast: cider like, softer, less crisp.

Orange colour with a quickly disappearing head. Sour and metallic nose with some sweetness. Dry, citric, quite heavy carbonation. Too metallic for my tastes.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap (handpump I believe) at PP Carlsbad. Really cool to get this outside of the bottle. Aroma was really nice. Funk, must, yeast, with a hint of vinegar. Flavor was pretty bready, funky, but not as funky as the aroma, yeast with hints of fruit. Not overly funky. Extremely drinkable. Good stuff.
