I agree with the Commercial Description: ’’’’sparking and refreshing¨. If I wasn´t sparked up enough, I had the pleasure to try this with Duff in some pub under London Bridge on southside the name of which is not so important right now. Tart and the bit of the blue cheeze that´s been sitting in the olive juice on the snack tray and all the Jatz are gone so I´ve gone and used my unwashed hands straight to the mouth despite the rags I may or may not be on right now. Beautiful geuze, beautiful company.

-Vintage 2010- Deep hazy orange with small white head. Big aroma of funk and citrus. Round and fruity palate. Aftertaste is tart, fruity, some caramel and lingering fresh finish. Overall: Excellent. I really like the subtle sweetness.

Bebida no restaurante Cambrinus em Brugges. Aroma ácido e frutado, cítrico. No sabor, a acidez é evidente, seguindo de um frutado. Excelente. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

375ml bottle served in a Pecheresse flute glass. Vintage 2008. A: Pours a bit cloudy, dark orange color forming a huge fizzy, bubbled and aired white head. Great retention in a flute and some soapy lacings formed and left in the glass S: Fruity and tart . Mainly white grapes and Lambic yeasts. Sweet malts and some metallic notes T: Follows the nose. A mild sweet fruity upfront followed by a tart and mild bitter end. Again, strong notes of white grapes, sweet malts malts and Lambic yeasts. M: Light body. Good carbonation. Tart and mild bitter aftertaste O: Easy drinking beer, you cannot feel the 8% here. Classic Belgian Gueuze in all the aspects. Excellent beer [ BA Review @ 7/17/2012 ]

Sampled at Where the Wild Beers Are, 6/7/14
This is a pretty tasty one. It hits the expected marks for the style. Definitely something I’d like to sample again. Quite sour. Nice acidity.

A really nice gueze. Pours a bubbly straw yellow with some sediment. Aromas of lemon, white wine, blue cheese. Flavors are tart and leaves your palate dry. White wine, lemon, barrel. Very nice.

Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Fles uit 2008 met tht 2031. Mooi troebel koperkleurig bier. Aroma is citroen. Smaak is zuur, trekkend, droge afdronk. Zeer mooie body. Een bier voor de liefhebber.

375ml bottle, pours hazy golden brown, fizzy, with a small bubbly head. Aroma is caramel, lemon zest, herbal. Classic geuze taste. Body is light, texture is light, carbonation is lively. Strong for a geuze and the abv not noticeable.

leolevorin (2) - sao paulo, BRAZIL - SEP 25, 2014 does not count
Amarelo brilhante com boa formação de espuma e persistência. No aroma as notas animalescas de estabulo e couro aparecem em primeiro plano além de notas de frutas como abacaxi e maça verde. Notas condimentadas, como cravo e pimenta do reino, e castanha de caju completam a incrível complexidade sensorial deste exemplar. No sabor , esta cerveja seca e de corpo baixo, a acidez se sobressai com notas cítricas de limão e laranja azeda, um pouco de condimento, coentro e pimenta do reino, também é notado além da presença de um off flavor (isovalérico), que neste caso é pertinente ao estilo, remetendo a sabores de queijo parmesão. O sabor residual é de acidez cítrica acompanhado de um estimulo à salivação. A Mariage Parfait é uma excelente representante das grandes cervejas belgas do estilo Gueuse.

jphartley (16) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2014
2010 Vintage. 1/2 Champagne Bottle from Sterk Avondverkoop Amsterdam. The aroma as it comes out of the bottle are oak and bread with a hint of sweetness. Really nice smell overall. The oak is perfectly in balance. The taste has some sharp sourness, but this is very well balanced by the overall sweetness and the relatively high alcohol percentage for this variety of beer (8%). The oak is there but doesn’t dominate. This is one of my favourite Geuzes. And at the price they are selling it at Sterk Avondverkoop (3.85 Euro) it is a bargain for a 4 year old beer.
