Bill Becker (565) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 12, 2012
375ml corked and caged bottle from Jan 2009. Okay, I put it in the fridge for about an hour and when I removed the cage, the cork shot out like a rocket. Thankfully, I didn’t lose much of the beer. It pours a huge head of foam..I can see a cloudy straw yellow brew underneath. As the foam shrinks, it leaves some nice lacing behind. The smell is both very sour and a bit bitter. Lots of apple like tartness dominate but there’s also a barnyard kind of smell there. It smells so good. I wonder if the taste can match it. Green apple tartness is up front, slight hint of funk, a bit of hop bitterness, more sourness...this is a grand brew to drink if you really dig sours. I’m smacking my mouth drinking this. I just don’t want the sourness of this brew to leave my palate! On the low end of medium bodied with a lively level of carbonation, the mouthfeel is just fine. This IS one hell of a Geuze! De Cam beers are awesome!

Lukaduke (2724) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUL 27, 2015
2009 Vintage. Drank in a blind gueuze line up. Nose is slightly volatile with hints of rubber and burnt hair mixed with stonefruit, musty basement funk and wet wood. Palate follows with a nice mellow complexity and less volatile strangeness but the finish is abrupt and a bit thin throughout. Not bad but didn’t stand out as one of the better ones from the line up.

Ambro206 (273) - ITALY - MAY 8, 2015
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2015: Amo le geuze ben bilanciate e questa è perfetta. Colore giallo scarico, aromi di coperta di cavallo, vino bianco e aceto. Equilibrio perfetto per tutta la bevuta.Corpo leggero, secchezza al palato ed una abbondante carbonazione la rendono piacevolmente beverina. Sicuramente una delle mie preferite nel panorama acido belga.
