(2008) Yellow color. Very lively--like champagne. Intense Brett (barnyard) & fruit aroma. Tastes of brett, almost more like a wine than beer. Tart & refreshing--hints of lemon, peach, maybe slight bubblegum. Alcohol about 8%, but not really noticeable due to so many other flavors going on. Yeasty dregs at bottom of bottle. If you haven’t tried it, it’s worth seeking out to find out what lambic is all about.

Pours hazy orange with a thin but persistent whie head. Aroma is sweet funky sourish acidic. Taste acidic sour-sweetish-sour, bitterish grape dry finish.

Antonio369 (156) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2016
37,5 cl bottle. Vintage 2012, served in flute glass. Poured slightly hazy amber with a two finger off white head that dissipated quickly. Lively carbonation in glass. Aroma: Granny Smith Apples, funk, barnyard, horse blanket, goat, blue cheese, cider, hay, earth, fruity, sweaty. Taste: Delicious!!! Sour & tart, granny smith apples, cider, fruity sweetness, vinous almost champagne qualities, cherries, barnyard, blue cheese, earth, funk. Very complex. Medium sour, not overwhelming. Good balance between sour and fruity sweet. Medium body with a very nice long dry and sour finish with a hint of fruitiness in the background. A dilicious and very refreshing Geuze! Absolutely love this nectar! Oh...and leave those last few drops with yeast sediment in the bottle, it will not do the flavor of the Geuze any good...

2006 & 2012 & 2015 at varying stages of the MBR Sour Beer tasting, thanks Matt H, Luka M & whoever got the last one. Dark golden body, dry mild funky taste, extremely dry and light in the 2006 version. Very dry, lovely funky notes - I don’t recall sniffing a horseblanket at any point in my life so I’ll refrain from using that descriptor. Good sourness, cute carbonation bite. I must admit I expected more from all the versions, but it’s a very good lambic nonetheless.

CaptainTilven (161) - Nancy, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2016
Corps orange doré opaque, couronné d’une mousse blanc cassé fine et crémeuse qui laisse un voile. Arômes de groseille à maquereau, pomme acide, foin, eau stagnante. Saveur un peu métallique; on retrouve les arômes; beaucoup de fruit en attaque. Très goûteuse, rustique, beaucoup de caractère. Encore très pétillante 48h après avoir ouvert la bouteille. Seconde dégustation à température entre 11,5°C et 14°C. Très bien avec un fromage de chèvre frais à caractère mais aussi avec un pont l’évêque; parfaite avec un pork pie.
