ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, - JUN 30, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a large white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. The aroma offers musk and champagne, along with light oak and leather notes and a touch of funky sourness. Lemon sourness up front is tempered by sweeter musk, which lingers to blend nicely with supple oak. Apple skin tartness and dry champagne come in at the mid-palate, with a sour, slightly leathery finish. A highly enjoyable and very complex gueuze.

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.

Linkiewitz (94) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 13, 2016
Rocznik 2011. Aromat: Kolendra, dzikość, białe winogrona. Wygląd: Ciemne złoto, delikatna piana. Smak: Bardzo przyjemny kwas, który wraz z owocową słodyczą tworzy wspaniały pierwszy plan. Nuty znane z aromatu wychodzą w akompaniamencie cytrusu w tle. Niezwykle orzeźwiające i pijalne piwo, warte spróbowania.

Well carbonated. The taste is dry. Light to medium fruity acidity. Yeast. Funky. Apples, champagne. Light zesty bitterness. Very good.

Just a plain good Geuze. Bitter, sour as a Geuze should be. Compared to it’s competitors (Girardin, Hanssens, ...) not the best, but a good compromise for a slightly cheaper beer

heavy (2750) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2016
May ’16. A 0.375 l bottle, 2012 vintage. It poured a hazy orange body with big head atop. Very nice crisp aroma of sour apple touched with lemon. Flavor was quite sour, too, but very balanced, so it was not overwhelming or offensive. Wood aging gave its share in it, also its fruitiness, apple, peach, lemon, some berries; quite complex. Medium in body with a long, sour and tart apple finish. Reminded me of Basque ciders, just more mature and rounded. A rich, nice fruity Lambic - calming, slowly enjoyed brew.

Pours clear orange amber with flat head. Aroma of apple, green grapes, bretta, grass, elderflower. Taste is gently tarty with a lot of fruit sweetness before a funky and tarty finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.
