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!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375 ml corked bottle from January 2009 (6% ABV). A hazy/cloudy dark blonde beer, with a huge, fizzy, mostly diminishing white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately to heavily yeasty (barnyard, dust/attic, cheese), with notes of citrus and apple. The flavor is moderately sweet, heavily acidic. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, dry and pretty long finish with light bitterness. Another excellent beer from De Cam.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to Pier-Luc and Julien for this one! Slightly hazy golden/orange with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma is of peaches, apricots, barnyard, funk, hay and light sweetness. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with barnyard, fruity notes, nice funk presence and hay. Medium body. Good carbonation. Dry palate (not bone dry). Super Gueuze. Not overpowering, but still amazingly complex and enjoyable. As Minderbinder already said, it’s reminiscent of some of the 3 Fonteinen stuff.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours slightly hazy golden with low white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of barnyard, funk, some fruits. Taste is pretty much the same, with that nice barnyard twist. Oh, and it is sour. Palate: Light body. Overall: Very good. Reminds me a bit of Drie Fonteinen stuff. I’d have this everyday if I could.
