Bottle @ Paters Vaetje, Antwerpen. Hazy medium yellow color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is sour, ripped fruit, lemon crispy. Flavor is moderate sweet and acidic with a long duration and a nice dry finish. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat, finish feel is light astringent. Very nice and refreshing. ;o)) (300807)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is sweet and sour with notes of metal, the sourness coming from the wild fermentation and the sweetness from the malt - a very inviting aroma. The color is orange and it has a fantastic head, and is very lively. The flavor is sweet, metallic, bitter, and bitter. It starts out as a sour orange, but then a the flavor of grapefruit takes over and lingers thru to the end. A great Gueueze - but I can recommend sharing a bottle.

(Bottle 75 cl) My version was only 6% ABV. Golden, hazy - pretty much no head at all. Complex sour, vinegary notes. Very traditional blend with all the horseblanket, sweaty esters. 201297

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Hazy nutbrown colour, not much head, but a bit white foam. Very sour aroma and flavour. My first thought when having this was that unless knowing what I drink I would have guessed for a Cantillon. Very pleasant, refreshing and smooth lambic.

19th May 2010
2005 Bottle. Very hazy amber beer. Thick bubbly white head. Nose of sherbet and wet dog! Crisp palate, dry. An approachable gueuze, not too acidic. Just a little lemon and wood. Bare whisper of hop. Finishes dry. Not too bad.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013
2012-08-31, corked bottle, vintage 2006, bb 2030.01.28, 6 years old, 9-4-8-3-17=41
Cloudy golden color, with frothy head. Deep aroma, horseblanket, with a sharp manure presence, pungent, and some fruitiness (grapefruit, pink grapefruit). Highly carbonated; the body is maybe too bold for a Gueuze, and even a bit oily; it has a strong character, with cellar elements, some alcohol perception and relatively strong bitterness.
Aggressive, maybe excessive.
Expiration date 2020, 9 years old, 10-4-8-4-17=43
Hazy golden color; good head retention. Very good Gueuze aroma, plus a nice fruitiness (grapes, grapefruit…). Aggressive, more because of the astringency than the acetic character; woody, mature.
Peculiar, my favorite Gueuze, so far.
