Ivanaschek (13) - POLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Bottled in april 2014. Aroma: earthy, leather, stable, wooden, wine vinegar, orange skin and white grapes. Appearance: orange color, cloudy liquid, white, quickly dissapearing foam. Taste: light sweetness, medium sourness turning little bitter at the end of bottle. Palate: medium body, soft carbonation, creamy texture, long finish. Overall: it’s worth reputation of one of the best standard edition of gueze beers. Even my female flatmates liked it!

Sourness hits hard, but gently hard. Fine hints of fruits like apple. Flowerish. Usual sour wine like boogie. Basic gueuze.

Bierridder_S (638) - BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2016
13/05/2016 - glass from 37,5 cl bottle @ the brewery, Brussels. Yellow/orange with a nice white head. Nose is light sour, bit grains, hints of green apple and citrus. Taste is more grains, not as sour as expected but very enjoyable and tempting enough however. Very nice basic gueuze.

datrael (164) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 11, 2016
Egzemplarz po 2,5 letnim leżakowaniu, Z wyglądu pomarańczowa, zawiesista ciecz z nikłą pianą, dość wysycona. Aromat to pszenica, banany, drożdże, nieco wina musującego, czuć też taką rześką kwiatowość. W smaku mocna kwaskowatość od pszenicy, po niej uderza lekka winogronowa słodycz i delikatny drożdżowy posmak. Świetne do gaszenia pragnienia, ale też bogate w smaku i aromacie, wymaga nieco skupienia do wyciągnięcia różnych posmaków. Charakter po części kwasu, po części szampana, wytrawne, przyjemne

Pours a hazy golden color with a good amount of head and lacing. Musty smell and tastes of lemons and wood. Excellent beer.

goozen (3753) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2016
From the decanter into the glass, at the Cantillon Brewery: Slightly hazy golden colored brew with more foamy head than the Jonge Lambiek. Taste is dry and also sour but slightly more gently. Hints of lemon and ripe apples.

Cantillon’s brews are... Well, what’s to say about them that hasn’t already been said? My tasting of this was with one of the newer vintages: Classic Geuze. Gold color with lively, fizzy head. Aroma of horse blanket, barnyard, dirty diaper, and citrus. Flavors are funky, lemony, tart, cheesy, and acidic. Mouthfeel certainly is sour but it’s not harsh - only a bit of vinegar-style acid. All told, this is a lovely Geuze. One of those brews that you could drink for days and still find something new to talk about.

Manslow (1019) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 23, 2016
Butelka 0,375l spożyte w domu. Kolor złoty z przebarwieniami orange, piana drobnoziarnista pięknie oblepia. Aromat gruszek i jabłek z piwnicy. Smak trochę zbyt kwaśny, winogrona, białe owoce. Trochę winne wykończenie. W szkle prezentuje się świetnie jak szampan
