3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Remarkable how low the aggregate score is here--3.5. I admit this isn’t my top gueuze, but that’s awfully low! Notes: extremely carbonated (as noted), with a massive, fluffy head and curious bead. My partner could smell the sourness at three feet (a lambic barometer?). Palate is sweet on the front, with notes of wheat and salt. Not my favorite gueuze, but I’d take it over 99% of beers.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
big bottle from Little’s. This is a rich gold with a clear body, active carbonation, and a permanent white head. The aroma is funky with notes of muscadines, oak, vinaigrette, straw and crackers. The palate is effervescent and bone dry. The flavor is not as acidic as I thought it would be. Don’t get me wrong, it’s plenty sour, but it’s not bracing like some others in the style. Clean, fruity sourness is complemented by soft oaken notes. This is really, really good and at $9.99 for a 750 mL, one of the cheapest geuzes on the shelf.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.375 l bottle with cork from Alko. Dark yellow/light amber colour with nice head, if not too cold. This is dry, as you would expect from oude geuze, but it has also that tannin or old oak wood taste. This won’t make your throat feel strange, it is much easier, but not sweet.
