2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] shared by milkmandan. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a dissipating, effervescent head. Aroma is apples, funky brett, and sweeter than I was expecting. Flavor is fizzy and oddly bitter, a touch of sourness and funk.

2003 bottle from oakes and beershine. Thanks!! Gold pour, cloudy. Tart aroma with some slight oxidation. Woody and fruity notes. Flavor is dry and tart as hell. A bit metallic.

1994 or 1997 Vintage
4/25/2009: Geuze Mariage Parfait pours a dirty, golden color with a fair amount of sediment in it. This beer is dry and oaky with a black walnut flavor quality about it. It is also sour with a slight vinegar note. This kind of beer isn’t really my style, but I did enjoy this one and found it to be quite palatable.
Sample from bottle shared by sliffy at Dark Lord Day 2009. Thanks Dan! Rating #411 for this beer.

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.

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.

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.
