Pours a slightly colored golden brown with a big head that receeds somewhat quickly. Smell is extremely sour with a strong yeast presence. Flavor is not as sour as I would have expected considering this is the first gueuze I have ever had and that the nose was so sour toned. This is actually extremely drinkable and I like it quite a bit. It is thinner on the mouth and not very heavy at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark gold to light copper under a nice soap sud like fluffy white head that left lots of heavy lacing. The aroma does indeed reveal Oude Gueuze. A nice horseblankety, lightly cheesy funkiness, raw oak, light vinegar, acidity and metallic notes. The flavor is quite tart and acidic with vinegar, over-ripe green apple, bready yeasty notes, and citrusy grapefruit. Finishes with a musty cork and cellar funk that lingers quite a while. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with spritzy champagne like carbonation. A lingering, almost white wine like, dry oak and peppery finish. Overall, pretty solid, almost tastes a little young.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2007 Orange mist with silky suds. Spritzy and sourish. Dribble-making oak/sherbety fruit aroma. Tangy lemon, mouldy tangerine, a touch of G+T dryness. Nothing like as harsh or acidically sour as some of the Oude Geuzes out there. Mellow and wheaty after the swallow. Really enjoyable.

What a gastly brew - far beyond sourish this ale has a aroma and flavour dominated by puke. Maybe I had an infected bottle, but Im not out for a retake...

Pours an opaque cider color with a massive sour aroma. I can smell it right now and it’s sitting next to me on my desk about 2 feet away. The flavor is more so tart than sour with an interestingly mellow aftertaste.

totally fascinating link to one of the most unusual brewing styles ever created. Pours a murky burnt orange with typically massive belgian head, gradually dissapating to a thin foam with intricate lacing. Immediately upon nosing the lambic one is introduced to a number of idiosynchratic scents: vinegar, leather, strong lemon all start off strong, and a slight malt presence can be detected. The palate shifts quite dramatically, intensely sour, then bitter, then finishing rather dry with a citrus kick and a spritzy body. Totally unusual and not for the average beer drinker, but for those with an adventurous palate it’s more than worth the price of admission.
