3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy amber with a big bubbly head. The aroma is musty and funky, with apples and cherries in the background. The first sip starts out slightly sweet, then finishes with a champagne-like dryness. There’s more apples, funk, horseblanket. The carbonation is a bit distracting and bites at times. This is my first gueze, and I have to say it grew on me as I finished my glass. Looking forward to trying this one again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very fresh bottle, i think maybe a year or two on it. Pours a champagne body with a huge explosive white rocky head. Lemon citric acid, some subtle dry woody tart lemon with low acidity. Lactic acid and some woodiness rounds this one out.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a 1/4 inch thick white head that faded to a thin layer. Aroma of tart citrus (orange and lemon, light peach), some funk (barnyard and horse blanket), and a moderate yeastiness (some cobweb). Tart, lightly funky entry leads into a sour (lemon and hints of grapefruit), funky barnyard yeastiness with some cobweb and horse blanket that finishes with a kiss of oak. Soft carbonation. A solid geuze I could drink pretty much any time.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at O’Brien’s, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing! Pours a clear amber-gold with a thick foamy white head. Big rich sour aroma, of lemon, yeast, and malt. Taste is a bit lighter, sour, of lemon and yeast. Lingering sourness that fades to a bit watery. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Wow didn’t quite know what I was getting into. The aroma is wonderful with a nice floral scent. When you take the first sip BAM, this is a sour beer. Once I knew what was going on it had an interesting flavor very citrusy... I am going to have to come back to this one.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
offers a solid pour with full white fizxy head that last just as long as it should, beautiful look as the head offers the perfect event horizon to the beer through the glass, mild aroma that hits you as your bring the glass up for a sip, mild subtleties are the initial note as the aroma is so initial, but as you enjoy this drink more it just gets better with the warmth of the room. good stuff, and fun to drink

This is an incredibly refreshing brew and very food friendly. Geuze’s are hard to come by here so I have’nt tried many to compare but there’s almost no better accompaniment to pizza than this!
