Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: Good beer. Still not a style I want to drink many of, but definitely 375 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 17E. Gueuze

Classy geuze! Bit acidic fruity - berry like sourness. Lovely lemon, mango, wood. Finishes more tart and quite dry. Enjoyable brew.

bartzluke (331) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Bottled 1 Dec, 2014; drunk 10 July, 2015 at Känguruh in Vienna, Austria. 0.375l pour into Belgian challice. Pours a bright orange, moderately hazy, with no head to speak of. Nose is musty. Like a winter coat pulled out of the closet in August. Barnyard and dirt. Maybe even a hint of manure or moldy cheese. These don’t sound like good things, but strangely they work fairly well. Body is thin, crisp, and tart. Biting. Taste is intense. Starts out tart and gets tarter. Tastes like sour oranges, maybe sour cherry, some hay, and ends with a bit of dirt. Hard for me to describe accurately beyond intense. Complex. A beer made for sipping.
