More please. This stuff is great. The degree of sourness is right in middle of a mild gueze like Cuvee Renee and a more aggresive gueze like Hansenns. Color is a lightly hazy light amber-orange. White foam settled to a small ring around my narrow wine glass. Aroma has horse blanket, flower petal, and slight toastiness. Taste is lemony with a touch of sweetness and a slight toasty bitterness. I could drink this all day.

MONKíS CAFE CUVEE Enjoyed this blend at Monkís Cafe with beerloco, mrs. beerloco, deliriumfest, ms. delirumfest, and dbhog yesterday. Appearance: The body is closer to straw than golden while the crown and lacing are minimal. Still a solid gueuze look imho. Smell: Oh baby this one just sings! A touch of spicy meets a symphony of sourness and barnyard. It has its vinegar moments but they donít dominate whatsoever. More of the acidity in the nose comes in more of an extra bitter lemon manner. Taste: Well refined sums it up. Loads of complexity here but tons of separation as well. Nice blended dose of sourness, citric notes and funk. More like leather than horseblanket. Mouthfeel: fairly thin and lively carbonation. Drinkability: This is a fantastic beverage that could serve you well all evening! Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-21-2009

Tasted at Cantillon on 9/10/06. Poured into Cantillon labeled snifter from 75cL bottle, huge waves of sournes, more so than Iíve experienced with the Gueuze before. So much complexity, words cannot do it justice.

An amazing array of aromas and flavours, my bottle poured quite flat, but still very tasty. One of the great appetiser beers of the world. Brings back happy memories of great bars in Brussels , where I always used to have a lambic gueuze to start .

Taboada (334) - Compostela (Galiza), - FEB 6, 2014
Tasted on bottle. 05/02/2014 in Brussels. There are a lot of apple in this geuze. Without carbonation the taste of the fruit is very high. My first gueuze. Next one please.

SUPER BOWL CELEBRATION BEER! Poured hazy goldish, small bubbly white head. Smell is sour fruit, cherries maybe? Flavor acidic, sour, oaky, and fruity. Very complex taste. Wonderfully carbonated, that leads to a very sour aftertaste. Mouthfeel carbonated, and acidic. Great special occasion beer!

You either love it or you donít. The champagne of Belgium is hard to explain, tastewise. Iíve introduced it to girls who canít stand beer, and who doesnít believe me when I tell them this is beer. Knowing how it is made helps, but well, it is, dry, sparkly, vinious and so wonderful sour. Thatís all I dare to say.
