I almost took my eye out with the cork. Pours a beautiful straw color with a big fizzy white head. Nose of champagne, grass and fruit. Tart, earthy and crisp tatsing. Nice clean finish, went wonderfully with NZ green lipped mussels

Very pretty golden color, slight white head with lots of pretty bubbles acsending from the bottom of the glass. Sharp, heady aroma-slightly champagne-like. Taste is tangy and spicy, very pleasing to a geuze lover. Finishes clean, doesn't linger.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shimmering gold color with fizzy head & lacing. The aroma is very barny with brettanomyces & light vinous qualities. Peppers and spice along with other complexities cover the tongue with balanced sweet & tart. Very tasty and artisinal.

Poured darker (orange) than expected, but with all the planned effervescence. The aroma hinted at the tartness that would come. Flavor was pure, with a predominance of pear and green apple, especially lively mouthfeel and a clean drying finish. Good Geuze!

Bottled: Golden coloured. Beige dense head. Lasting. Well sweetened aroma, that mingle nicely with the normal geueze sourness. Has a light fruity flavour with some sour notes. Has a ligth tarty aftertaste. Not the best, but pretty good.

(750 ml "champagne" bottle, vintage 1997-98). Pours with an enormous lasting head. Cloudy golden colour. Lovely aroma of sour fruits, notes of spices and horse stable. Flavour is fruity, sour but not vinegar, a little tart. Quite dry. Reminds me of a brut champagne. Moreish aftertaste. Yummy!

nice coppertone color, with a lovely rinse aroma, and flavour which soon develops into tannines of wood, and sour apple flavours.
Long aftertaste, pleasant drinkable beer. Worth buying also to keep the tradition alive.
