4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted 2007-07-21. 5 years old, 75cl. Hazy, dark yellow colour with white head. Aroma of apples, citrus, pineapple and hay. Acidic taste of apples, citrus, barnyard - a little flat, but it doesn’t ruin the beer. Very good!

Slight hazy yellow gold hue, with a white head, at the unwire of the bottle, the cork came out by itself, nice tart, acidic apple fruitiness, with a good musty, barnyard accent, with a sour fruity rhubarb note, with a wet oaky aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a tart, sour, oaky character, with a musty, citrus acidic accent, with a rhubarb tartness, leading towards a lemony dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Pours opaque hazy amber with lasting dense off-white head and nice lace. Yeasty, bready, earthy aroma with faint tartness. Complex layers of tart flavors, horseblanket with a dry finish. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Delicious, if not the most flavorful of the gueuzes.

Tasted@Akkurat, Stockholm: Very fresh and tart aroma with touch of cellar and citrus. At first feels simply refreshing and drinkable but then the lingering tartness appears. Nothing heavy duty but still very nice.

500ml bottle (Gallows Bird, Espoo)
Dark orange, lively tight head, stays for ever. Sour lambic aroma. Warming mellow woody taste - some oak. Also sharp and refreshing, quite grapey. Malty and part-bitter-part-mellow finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 37.5cl cork bottle bought in Belgium.
SOUR!!!! First impression is only sour, sour sour.... like biting into a lemon, but after a while (about half the bottle) you get used to it and begin to discover some subtle woody tastes and smells. The palate feels very much like a French wine; a dry white one with a lemon and wooden-casket feel to it. Fun to try but not my kind of beer. Great for very hot summer days though.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy yellow champagne appearance. Has a big white head, lively bubbles and lacing. Sharp aroma- sour, Chardonnay, lambic flavors. Tastes like a sour champagne, but you know it is a beer with the lambic yeast flavors and the malt. No hops or bitterness. A very dry finish. Very enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden/orange with a good sized white head that fades slightly and leaves some lacing. Aroma is acidic and full of citrus fruit and a mild barnyard leathery character. Taste is a little softer than the aroma with the acidity being present but never too much and the barnyard being very faint. Medium thin mouthfeel that finishes dry, tart, and mildly spicy. A good Geuze

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Best before 2025 bottle (labeled Geueze Boon); The aroma starts off with the standard sour smells, with hints of citrus, and a touch of straw. Pours a hazy straw color with a big fluffy white head. It is an amazingly dry beer, with a very sour start, and a long sour/bitter (almost pith like) finish.
