3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden-brown body. Nice off-white head, hazy and well carbonated. Aroma is dry and fruity, mainly citrus fruits. Flavor is dry-bitter grape which quickly disappears into a dry and slightly sour finish. An okay gueuze.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Best by 2026? Yowzah! I wish I was more patient, but still delightful. Light clean golden yellow with a thin even white head. Tart biting lacto-pedio nose. A bit salty. Straight sour. Hose blanket/straw. Light body, rather carbonated. Biting sharp tart. Straw astringent. A bit stronger on the malt for the style. Fruity. Lingering tannins. Really nice even if there were some grapefruity plastic flavors.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served with spicy tomato soup with coriantes and scallops. Very sparkling when poured. Nice golden straw-yellow with a huge-bobble white head that stays. This one is much stronger than regular gueuzes but you cant tell the alchol by the nose. There is old apples, sourness like grapefruits, some vinegar and fruit. The taste is classic sour with grapetones - the palate is surprisingly rather thin and not that oily. The finish is bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Front a 750 ml bottle from the Northcoast Coop that cost $7.69 it poured a hazy yellow with big white head and light lacing. Nose of ripe fruit, with banana and citrus in front, and pear and apple showing in the taste. Lively highly carbonated mouthfeel, but good to drink. Finish is dry and somewhat bitter. Good.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Was recommended this beer by a fellow patron at the Delerium Cafe in Brussels. I received a 2003 vintage, served in authentic glassware. Head was pure white and sparkling. First taste was lemon, sweet and tart, and the aftertaste was wonderfully dry. I would compare it to a fine champagne.

Lots of citrus, fruit. Rather thin. Clean sour taste.
True to type, interesting, but not my favourite.

Bottle shared via piscator34, nice to finally try this gueze. Pours a slightly hazed golden straw, one finger white head. Nose- nice pungent sour fruits, vinegar, earthy. Taste- not quite as sour as expected given the sharp smell to the beer, but still had a nice citrus /apple tartness. Thin mouthfeel with a dry earthy quality to the finish. Very easy drinking and high carbonation. Alcohol is hidden for size the of this gueze.
