1996 bottle at Bruxellensis. Pours a faintly hazy gold. Nose is acidic with a lot of funkiness, barnyard, hay, fruitiness. Taste wasn’t as sour an acidic as the nose had you believing. Slightly acidic up front, fruity and dry in the finish. Sourness was milder compared to the newer versions. Lots of tartness and wild yeast funk.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2007 12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a foamy white head. Aroma is dominated by SOUR lemon tart and mild vinegar. Taste is extremely sour, to the point where it is almost undrinkable. Lemons,sour berries,tart and vinegar dominate. More tolerable as it warmed. Not a fan.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Bottle 2006. Labeled as Classic Gueuze. This gueuze pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 375ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is tart, must, horse blanket, leather and funk. A medium bodied gueuze, Malts are fruity, despite all the tart/sour and funk in this beer. Tart, dry, sour and funky but there is a nice malt flavor underneath all that funk. Lively carbonation. Bone dry finish yet there is some fruitiness right at the end. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
