3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Brassin 2006/2007 en bouteille au St-Bock. Cette gueuze est très agréable en bouche avec une acidité moins prononcé que d’autre. Une certaine sucrosité est perceptive. Elle a une belle couleur paille. Cette bière est encore très jeune et mériterait qu’elle vieillisse encore en bouteille quelques années. Aussi bue le brassin 2009-10.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden yellow colour, thick and fluffy white head. Dry, spicy aroma of apples and citrus fruits. The flavour is very dry and sour, with grapefruit, apples and pepper. Fizzy carbonation; rather light-bodied. I’m not a lambic fan, but this is quite interesting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle from andrew shared at sourfest #1... pours a semi-clear apple cider brown with a thin soapy head... musty less funky aroma compared to the hanssen with some green apple, chemical phenols... flavors were musty cobwebs with the aforementioned off-ness. medium carbonation and not as nice as the first geuze. some bitterness as well in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased at 2be in Brugges. Pours a pale yellow with a large white head. The aroma is citric, earthy and funky. The taste is funky, sweaty, earthy, lemony, and peppery. Not bad at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 375ml cork & caged from Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent. Clouded orange with white head. If you had some of these flavours in any other beer, it would go back, but in Geuze Lambic, it just works. Sparkling, citric and tart, lemon rind with sour apples, its just crazy but very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange with a fragmented head. Funky aromas with notes of lemon, horse and basement. The flavour is sour and dry, but still drinkable and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange pour, slightly hazy with thin cream head. The aroma coming out of the glass says sour, lactic, barnyard, must. The taste isn’t as sour as it smells unfortunately, i was really expecting something extremely tart but this tends to lean towards the sweet side of things, it is still acidic however more in a lemony sense. A very tasty lambic, not sour like cantillon but good on it’s own

Bottle. Light golden pour with a bit of cloudiness. Citrus, apple, leather, spice and mineral. Citrus, spice, fruit with sweetness and bitterness. Dry. Interesting bottle
