1997: Sour water. Some type of dank wood left outside in the rain smell. I didn’t really enjoy this one at all.

1997 VERSION: Distinct barnyard odors and nice mustiness. Nose was a winner... on par with the best of the gueuzes. Grassy taste did take away from some of the taste. Overall, it was nice and complex with a great sour ending.

Nice sweet candy gueuze. A nice beer to drink instead of eating candyfloss.

Woody aroma. A slight sourness. Sweet and fruity (grapes, pear, peach, mango). Tastes a bit medicinal.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2003 Extremely sweet and sweaty beer. I wonder what they have done to destroy a fine lambic into this crap.

Clear amber under a small creamy yellow head and light lace. Standard but mild sweaty sour yeast, somewhat metallic, and very faint fruit aromas. Medium to soft low carbonated body. Weak sour, weaker bitter start fading very quickly to a dull flat watery cider finish. Crikey, am I rating the same beer as everyone else here. Where’s the sour and where’s the wood? There is no way I can give this more than 2.5 - I’m gonna have to get me another one of these to rate.

oh this smells right. hints of oak and vanilla, sour and alcohol with a faint and strange tropical hue. Smells sweeter than Cantillon but is actually less sweet and less sour. Flat and redolent with Brett. Yes, I’m surprised at how good this is (especially at $.99 a pop on sale) for this brewer however I’ve had much better. I’ve had an amazing fruit lambic from de Troch, too.

Interesting to drink, smelt like an Oak barrell, and that characteristic certainly came through in its taste, apart from that i thought it was more sweet than sour, with apply fruit and a port or sherry characteristic, it wasn’t bad, but i preffer more sourness in my Geuezes.

Not bad. Nice oak and hops aroma. Golden colour. Sweet and sour. Not too sweet. Some oak and apples. Finishes a bit more hoppy.
