3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, de Kring, Lembeek. Pale gold, good-sized white head, well carbonated. Tight, punchy tart up front, but the finish is dry, funky. Aroma is class geuze: apples, tart, citrus. Good, but lacking some complexity when compared to the blenders. Very drinkable, could quaff the heck out of this one on a hot summer day.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2001 vintage small bottle. No pop on the cork, but slight carbonation- wierd spotty cobwebby foam and sporatic lace. Murky coppery brown body. Mustly, dirty, dusty, earth, lactic, funk, and some light cherry pit aroma. Sharp lactic and acetic acid flavor especialy upfront, and even burns through to the back of my nose like a strong vinegar. Sharp cheesy flavor, some ammonia, farmhouse funk, tons of lacto and acetobacter bacteria. Moderately sour in the finish with some more cherry and cherry pit astringency. Good drying bitter, and sour mouthfeel. Pretty good queze overall. Unique for sure.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
slightly hazy dark golden with a white head that settles into a thin film. aroma...eh...dry grassy aroma with a little lemon and apple. its good i just dont get that intense horse blanket feeling that you get from most lambics...it almost reminds me of a pilsner. tart sour apple with a hint of lemon...nice sweet backbone with light bitter dry grassy notes. dry very dry tart sour apple and lemon finish with light dry bitter grassy notes...hay? light to medium body sparkling carbonation. at first i didn’t like this beer at all because it is so different from the other geuzes i have had (hanssens cantillon) but after drinking the bottle it is growing on me. i will have to try this one again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an appetising cloudy orange, with an off white head. The aroma is of rotting citrus - sounds awful I know, but is actually quite enticing. Firmly sour on the palate with complex herbal and almost grape notes, and hints of lemon which persist in the long bitter finish.
