Pours a thick yellow/orange glass of beer. I didn’t really enjoy it; there’s nothing much more to it than a rather heavy sourness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle, pours a hazy orange yellow. Aroma of ripe banana, a real sour yeasty bread/vinegar note. This is my first geuze and wow, taste is a sweet and sour carnival! Some fruit does creep through though, banana, grapefruit and lemon.finish goes completely sour and then some sweet fruit returns.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stormy orange appearance. Bubbly. Lovely foam. Faint aroma. Pouring the whole bottle brings more sourness. Easy gentle geuze.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour. The beer is a light yellow with a soft haze. Not much for head, but the little that was there, was white. The beer had a soft acidity to it with a bready, straw like character to it. Mild acidity in the taste and the grassy, straw character remains throughout. Medium body and low carbonation.

Bottle 2011-2012. The sourness is not overwhelming. It is fresh with sweet undertones. Easy drinkable, like a sparkling wine.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2004-2005 vintage in corked 750mL bottle. BB 14.06.2027.
Smuggled this back from Belgium years ago (’07 I think), and has been sitting in the cellar since.
Good uncorking. Pours a lively slightly cloudy orange-gold body, white head flairs up holding a small firm cap.
Decent intensity of aroma - typically dominant grapefruit rind, hay, unripe pineapple, hard cheese, yeast lees, faint sort of a tropical fruit character.
Effervescent body drives that acidity - not overly tart but certainly zesty, livening up the palate, and senses.
The aged "factor" seems more apparent on the body - chalky/minerally character, very hay/cut grass/meadowy (is that a word!?), citrus not as abundant as the nose would dictate, still some grapefruit & lime leaf. Aged cheese notes linger on a reasonably long finish with notes of white balsamic & funky apple.
Glad to finally try this, and certainly not disappointed. Oldest bottled lambic I’ve tried, by some measure, yet still seems youthful - testament to how long these beers can keep!
