4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12cl draught tasting sampler at Volkscafé De Cam, pre NvdGD 2014. Pours a deep gold, with a slight prickle as vestigal foam activity. Contained effervescence and hence aromatics: vanilla wood cask, late cheese notes. A present aged hop tingle in the rhubarb compote and intense lemon zest carries a vinous sweetness into a cultured, astringent finish. Love how De Cam is carving out a fresh and subtle niche in moderate fruit-acid balance and retuning age-old musty harmonies.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The barnyard funky horse blanket aromas are there, but they are not as prnounced and upfront like other geuzes ive had. There are many as upfront aromas light lemon zest, wet hay, and musty hops, also. The finish is quite tart, but again, i expected more, but its still very enjoyable. Im really digging the incredible balance between the sourness and other flavours.

Bottle shared at the January 2014 tasting in Santa Cruz. Orange gold color. Apple skin and champagne aroma. Flavor has apples, lemons, some wheaty malt, and a heavy brett finish with some bitterness. A different gueuze for sure.
