3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear pale yellow with a huge (3-4 finger) white pillowy head, that receded slowly and lasted throughout with excellent sticky foamy lacing.
The aroma was of light grain and straw malts and a funky Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), a dusty wood odor, white grapes, apple, apricot and a slight tartness.
The taste was a tad sweet with a good strong grainy yeast presence and a touch of apricot and apple throughout, finishing boldly sour with a hint of white grapes and a light wine presence right at the end. The flavor was short in duration, with the tart fruity taste fading away off the taste buds almost immediately after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a thin dry texture and a very lively carbonation.
Overall I perceived this to be a very good tasting Geuze, with a strong fruity presence which only accented the moderate winey sourness, giving this brew a very enjoyable and easy drinkability... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Don’t know, somehow dull and unremarkable?
Neither really sour nor sweet. Refreshing but dull. Maybe it’s just me?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
hay, barnyard, cheese, leather, alcohol, aciditiy citruses- oranges and lemon. when you get used the barnyard aromas it is quite nice.
pale, golden, slightly hazy, minimal head, white foam, good retention.
lightly sour, umami, light sweetness. light body, thin feel, lively, long finish, very tart. the palate does not follow the aroma very nicely- too tart, puckering.
overall, nice but needs some work. enjoyed the citrus and acidic aromas the most

@multiboutique tasting: strange how those components: distant silos, lactoish tartness, salty licorice, spicy old Bergkäse/Parmesan and green Apples can make for such a quite enjoyable drinking experience. Surely, this, like Girardin Black Label, should be great when tasted vertically.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2015 The velvet champaign like texture make this thing. Apart from that you are looking at a distinctive sour, almost cider like taste. Its unique and a beer that really hits the spot.
If you love beer you have to try it. Even if it is to see how stylistically different beers can be.
Poured from the bottle.

Hazy deep orange color. Good carbonation. Not so intense aroma, but has nice leather and barn notes. Very balanced, but on the sour side. Lime, pineapple (if the sugar didn’t exist), and barny taste. Very nice complex gueuze. Very drinkable.
