UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Very special and famous Gueuze. First taste of cidre and chemicals. A feeling of uncertainty is creeping to you - do I really like this product. Yes, I like it very much. Really a fresh member in the beer family. If you need some day something special, try this. Special thanks for well chosen, bitter hops! Could suit well together with crepes - must test!

Blonde aux reflets orangés et bien trouble, une mousse mince ne tient pas à étirer sa présence bien longtemps. Un nez fruité (pommes, raisins, citrons) et de terre (gazon mouillé) fait saliver. En bouche, c’est explosif et rafraîchissant, notamment grâce à l’acidité et à la sécheresse importante de cette bière. Un grand classique à boire à grandes lampées.

Pours a matte golden yellow with no head. Nose is sour apple with citrus and yeast. Taste sour apple with a sudden attack of sourness that perfectly smoothes toward the end of a fruity after taste.

Thanks to joedevivre for share. Beautiful beer. Gold color. Tart fruit, lemon, earth funk, sour apple on the nose. Taste is slightly sour, but with nice solid light body. Crisp with dry finish. Fantastic.

Aroma of malts, earthy funk, wood, tart fruits, sour apples. Flavour is sour vinegar, a little malt. Very smooth and tart, wonderfully balanced. Wow.

poured a slight cloudy golden yellow colour with a white head. barnyard, lemons, grapefruits, acid, hay, vinegar, citrus, grains, tart. however for me the 3 fonteinen geuze is a bit better. because of the more sharp sourness.

Bouteille 37,5cl. 28nov2013. Belle couleur blond doré, mousse furtive presque absente . Nez levuré et boisé. Acidité vineuse et aigre très agréable , qui lui confère une belle longueur en bouche , en sent bien la levure et le chêne , finale sèche et astringente . Carbonation très faible. Simple et élégante...une très belle bière. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille 37cl @Bioplanet {Bouchon Août 2013}. Belle robe cuivrée sans col ni effervescence. Nez assez doux, suret avec un pointe de boisé, quelques effluves maltées, peu houblonné. La gorgée est assez douce et développe des arômes fruités de raisin, de pomme, courts en bouche mais long en arrières goûts et en saveurs: l’orge offre un belle rondeur un pue miéleuse, et le froment tapisse bien tout le palais. L’attaque est acide sur des notes fines. En finale cette acidité reste tenace sur les papilles avec un houblon fleuri très discret qui pique la langue. Belle dégustation qui a de la mâche. Assez succulent !
