bottle. pours a hazy honey with a thick white head that fades pretty quickly, but leaves a bunch of chunky lacing. sharp lemon and orange citrus smell, with a bit of funk. more of that citrus in the taste, combined with some grape, a bit of spice, and a bit more funk. good sour dry finish with a medium body, a lot of carbonation, and an aciding, thin, filmy mouthfeel. a decent gueuze. though i’ve had better, i certainly wouldn’t turn this down. this is quickly becoming one of my favorite styles. that’s weird to say for a big-beer/hophead like me.

Bottle. Pours a hazy, golden colour with white head. Very sparkling indeed. Aroma and taste of nothing but sour fruit. I’ll take a kick to the groin any day just to avoid this beer. Not fond of lambic/geuze.

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a hazy golden amber with a large frothy lacing off white head. Aroma of green apple, tart cherries and a basement funk. Flavor was sour, a bit thin and funky. Some fermented apples and dry.

Taste courtesy of piscator34. Light straw colour. Nose is of light funk and citrus. Taste- quite tart with lemon and green apple. High carbonation as expected. Very refreshing and tasty gueze

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light orange in colour with spritzy carbonation. Aromas of horse blanket, lemon, and a bit of spice. Fairly tart in the mouth, but not overly sour. More horse blanket and lemon flavors, and even a little bit of stone fruit. A touch watery. A solid gueuze, but not as good (or as sour) as Cantillon or Girardin.

Draft, Engelbewaarder, Amsterdam. You’ve all had it. It’s delicious geuze. Maybe not right from the barrels, but this stuff rocks.

Thinner in body than some gueze with flavors lingering less. Bone dry and fun to drink but doesn’t stand up to some of its counterparts.

Very good spontaneous fermented beer. It has yellow-golden color, some acidic-sour flavour with a light sweetness, lightly carbonated geuze from Lembeek
