3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours to a hazy coppery golden body with a nice white head and awesome lacing. The aroma is pretty awesome too. Sour, tart, acidic, funky cheese (aged Brie, Blue, and aged Havarti). The flavor is sour, tart, and acidic. Nicely blended but thereís nothing really super outstanding. The palate is tart and acidic. Not as sour or as complex as I want in a gueuze.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2011 Huge white lasting head. Hazy deep yellow body with slow
carbonation. Deep waxy barnyard aroma with wooden floral
marzipan notes. Clean and fresh. Strong dry-acidic wooden
floral apple taste with barnyard metal notes. Mid-bodied. Sharp
mouthfeel, slightly fizzy. Sharply dry herbal wooden floral
aftertaste with barnyard and mineral notes. Highly unusual, and
a much fuller-bodied geuze than the norm. I found it very
drinkable. (0.375l bottle, Beer Palace, Oslo. Rated it in 2007, too, but didnít understand it at all back then.)

75 cl bottle.
Full creamy head on top of a golden cloudy beer. Sourness, sure, but also a round fruitiness. Oaky finsih, very dry. Nice stuff.

75 cl bottle. Cloudy amber colour, fine white head. Lemony nose, hints of cheese. Woody flavours, lemons, ending very dry. Fizzy, with a medium body. Rich and complex as you would expect an oude geuze.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml, date is unknown but i found this on clearance for $3.99! pours clear pale-copper with white head. nose is lots of vinegar, flowers, faint rotton egg, and some barnyard funk. flavor is rather unrefined, a watered down sourness taste at first, brett, earthy, and finishes mildly sweet and dry. mouthfeel is full and carbination is high. alcohol isnít noticed. the nose and flavor just isnít very good. although this did the job of taking care of this geueze craving i had all day (it is tasty), this is really on the bottom end of the wonderful world of geueze. Iíll age the other ones i bought on clearance for 4-10 years.

As I try to get into the world of lambics, this one has been the most tolerable for me. The cork popped just like a champagne bottle. Sour and funky as the rest of lambics usually are. Iíll eventually find my way.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sour citrus nose with slight barnyard must, hazy orange straw body. Sourness comes through to the taste but not as full on, more fruit flavours and a dry finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle: pours an orangy hay colour with a large fluffy white head. aroma is sour almost a little skunky, aroma also of unripe apples, but a little sweetness too. the flavour is a little thin and weak a small amount of soue apple flavour with a little sweetness. finishes quick and with hardly any drying. i love gueze and this seems sub-par and lacking alot of the strong qualities like in gueze.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
355 ml bottle. I have tried several lambics and generally have liked them, but had not yet sampled a geuze. I saw this one at Whole Foods Market and decided to give it a shot. The cork flies out of the bottle similar to champagne. Lively pour with a dull gold body and a large white head with decent lacing. Sour, kind of funky aroma that was not pleasant, but not entirely unpleasant either. The flavor did nothing for me; sour (which I normally like), but also salty (which I do not like). There was also a weird taste that I could not put my finger on and can best describe as wet dog. I did not detect any fruit flavors. SInce this beer has a decent overall rating, Iím assuming geuze is not a style I care for, although I am glad I tried it for the experince.
