Sweeter than the last gueze I had. Very palatable for the beginer. Goes well with many dishes and many cheeses. Definately would recommend this. Nice straw color and hige amount of carbonation. Be careful when you open the cork. It damn near took out my eye!

I once saw this referred to as a session gueuze. I would agree with that, it is one of the most drinkable gueuzes. It does not have any strong, funky, distinguishing flavors but is overall a good tasting, refreshing drink that went well with my dinner.

Milky, bitter and sour. It has something, but doesn’t really make it all the way.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I sampled the 1996-97 version. Orange colour, sedimenty appearence. Fruity aroma and dry tart acetic flavour. My first of the style, so I don’t have much to compare it to.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. I wonder if this was too old or slightly spoiled, as it didn’t work that well for me and seemed way too harsh. Appearance boded well, nice mellow gold with a big, strong (for the style) and lasting head. Aroma was really tough though; I don’t mind the horseblanket/barnyard aroma, but this had NOTHING else that I could determine; just heavy and aromatic in not-the-best way. Memorable, I guess! Flavor is a bit better; definitely let it warm a lot, because only at close to room temp does any nice fruitines or malt come through; otherwise its just sour sour sour, and dry as the driest champagne. Finishes warmly, but again with that sourness going all the way down. I’ll try again sometime, but for now I’d go with Lindemans among accessible geuzes.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
creamy head, fruity aroma with some oak. Complex flavor, not too sour. Oak and some fruitiness. Long finish. Very drinkable and complex, but friendly geuze. Bottled in 1996.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Only moderately sour with a mild and delicate flavor. The best part of this beer is just its aroma. Just smell it! Dry with floral wheat and the innately complex flavor of a real Gueuze. Worth tasting, but not one I seek out regularly.
