3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
slightly hazy dark golden with a white head that settles into a thin film. aroma...eh...dry grassy aroma with a little lemon and apple. its good i just dont get that intense horse blanket feeling that you get from most lambics...it almost reminds me of a pilsner. tart sour apple with a hint of lemon...nice sweet backbone with light bitter dry grassy notes. dry very dry tart sour apple and lemon finish with light dry bitter grassy notes...hay? light to medium body sparkling carbonation. at first i didn’t like this beer at all because it is so different from the other geuzes i have had (hanssens cantillon) but after drinking the bottle it is growing on me. i will have to try this one again.

Pours an appetising cloudy orange, with an off white head. The aroma is of rotting citrus - sounds awful I know, but is actually quite enticing. Firmly sour on the palate with complex herbal and almost grape notes, and hints of lemon which persist in the long bitter finish.

Bottle, Aikmans. Orangey hazy with a huge white head that laces well. Nose is floral hoppy and some dustiness. Mouth is quite sour with some mouldiness, and finishes very dry and long with some lasting lemoniness. Rather good actually.

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.
