4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
From 07/24/10 notes. Review #500
a - Pours a hazy golden-amber color with a little bit of fluffy white head and light carbonation evident.
s - Smells of lemon, citrus, floral hops, earthy malts, and some funkiness as well. Some funk and tartness comes out as it warms.
t - Tastes of funk, almost cheese like, as well as tart fruit, lemon, grapes, and maybe a hint of oak.
m - Light to medium body and light carbonation. Quite dry and crisp. Pretty easy to drink.
d - An amazing gueuze; one of the best Iíve had in the style. Lots of nice tart and funky fruit and very easy to drink. Glad I got to try and would love to have again.
EDIT: Got to try this a second time on 11/05/10 thanks to ygtbsm94 (thanks Brad!), and enjoyed it even more than the first time. The smell is absolutely amazing and I felt like I could have drank a whole bottle.

Bottle shared thanks to the superstar Dan. Poured light haze orange with light white head. Aroma funky fresh hay cow. Light carb med bod. Taste light stone fruit light acidic. Very subtle barrel that pretty much drys it out with little oak.

This is a beer that Iíve been fortunate enough to have had several times, and each time is a fun experience in its own way. It has a nice head and is perfectly balanced with tartness and leathery lambic notes.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a very hazy deep orange with ample fizzy, foamy eggshell head. Smells outstanding; an excellent blend of funk, oak, citrus, and cheese alongside an awesome damp basement presence and some grape notes from the barrels. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as robust and funky. Still incredible though, as the nose is as good any gueuze (or beer, for that matter) Iíve ever had. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and pleasant with mild to moderate tartness. Stunning gueuze that lives up to the hype.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
(750ml bottle @ DHVL, Nov 16 2015, split w/ phyllomedusa) Pours hazy gold with a dense white cap of small bubbles fading to a ring. Aroma of pear, apple, stone fruits, slight stewed cognac sweetness, white grapes, wood, light cheesy funk, hay, and some citrus zest. Surprisingly bright for its age, a stellar nose! Taste brings all that fruit from the nose together in a nice bright, tart body with floral, grassy notes and a feeling of just slight under-ripeness in the fruit for bite. A little grape sweetness, probably the cognac. Some wood, musty attic funk and zesty citrus lead to a dry, tart and slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is just stellar, light but vibrant and not watery, with a fine carbnation that comes alive in the mouth. This is an absolutely top flight gueuze. The fruit notes and complexity were really stellar, and it all blended together and felt so nice to drink. Awesome!

Bottle @ Dangerous Bottleshares WLZBRZ edition thanks to Phredrik! Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is stunning. Where to begin? Lots of green grapes, funk, cheese, oak, mould, citrusy notes, goose berries, stable, horse blanket, leather among other subtle notes. Could sniff this 4dayz yo! The taste is tart, oaky and rather dry with some juiciness to it though. Apples, vinegar, wood, dank basement, citrus, weak orange, leather, ginger and weak lime. Just delicate and deep like a basement filled with awesome gems. Mysterious woody quality with lots of fruits and funk. Best gueuze I have had yet.

Bottle brought by Phredrik to Dangerous Bottleshare WHLZBRZ-edition. Thank you so much for sharing this buddy. Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. This looks so good! Aroma hits you in the face with so much complexity right from the start. Right from the start itís very funky, green tart apples, mold, red apples, red grapes, apricots, vinegary, cheese, gooseberries. Taste has lots of sour green apples, sweet red apples, elderflower, vinegary tart notes, citrus, lemon zest, cheesy funk, oak, hay and some tannins in the back. God damn, this is amazing. Best gueuze Iíve ever had for sure.

75 cl bottle at Dangerous Bottle share Whrzblz edition. Long time want, so stoked to finally drink this beast. Beautiful hazy orange pour, lasting white head. Aroma is heavenly funky, lots of lemon zest, grapefruit, layers of pedio-driven lactic complexity, apricots, peach and white grapes. Perhaps the best geuze aroma Iíve ever encountered. The first beer I would give a legit 11 in aroma. Taste is intensely tart, lots of citrus, elderflower, apricots - just bursting with fruity notes. This beer is truly mysterious, in every way. A true work of art. I am truly amazed by how perfect this beer is. Best geuze I have ever had, this one takes the price. First 5 from me, and this is truly worth it.
