Body is amber, with a thin white head. Aroma is very fruity with lemon zest, horseblanket, very tart as expected. Taste shows plenty of alcohol, with a tart bite to it it that pulls it away from the alcohol a bit, almost seems more like a champange then Deus. Interesting beer for sure.

Bottle CTV3 shared by moejuck, thanks!
Pours a cloudy yellow orange with a white head. Aroma of yeast, funk, grapes, and sour. Flavor was funky as well as sour with a lot of fruit elements. Lots of carbonation and finishes somewhat dry. Funk and sour ain’t my thing, but this was pretty interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of someone so cool they wink lightning bolts. Tart, acidic balsamic aroma with that special aroma I always refer to as chinese baby corn though no one else gets the reference. Body is a dirty brown/gold and holds a slowly diminishing white head that is both bubbly and creamy. Tart, chalky dry fore is followed by under ripe apple flavors anf finishing with a smooth balanced sweet and tart finish. Never very intense in either direction, but a very approachable geuze that would pair well with a wide range of foods.

Hazy golden color, heavy sour winy aroma. Flavour starts round of hay and lemon but finishes a bit woody and tart. Mellow.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2006 Nice darker yellow, light amber coloured, little hazy with an average white head and strong carbonation. Smouth fruity, little sour aroma. Little woody touches. Full body. Starting sweeter, ending more sour. Finish is tart, sour, well balanced with some fruity and wody touches. Long ending. Very nice geuze!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy dark-yellow body with a large white head. Acidic nose with apples and pineapples notes. Taste has medium-high level acidity (not a bad thing) with some hay and green apples flavours piercing through. Medium sourness. Not a very tasty gueuze. Had it side by side with a regular Boon Geuze and they were too different to even compare them. Good beer but there plenty of better gueuzes out there. If that’s a Perfect Marriage no wonder there’s so many divorces nowadays.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle, cork labelled SB40. This lambic ale poured with a huge white head that dissipated rather quickly. There is a sour barnyard aroma. This gueuze is neither sweet nor sour, as with most other examples of this style, but is somewhat bitter and citrus-like. The taste is not complex but, rather, straightforward and good.
