4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a sparkly gold with a quick dissipating white head. Aroma is apple, celery, yeast, grain. Medium bodied, quite effervescent, a little bit oily. Flavour is apple, a little vegetal, yeast. Tart, but not too tart. Finish is mildly acidic. Great balance, great flavour, an obvious stand out.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Saved a good one for my tenth rating. This is one amazing geuze. The color is somewhat foggy orange. A rocky white head that doesn’t last very long. The aroma: green apples, some sour notes and that typical Geuze smell that I cannot yet describe with the right words, but I like it. Taste: again green apples, some citrus, sourness. Every sip makes you look forward to the next. Can be right up there with the other Geuze greats like Cantillon and Hanssens. Carbonation... Well, it does actually remind me of champagne. And I would prefer this geuze over champagne any day of the week. Cheers!

375 ml bottle. Golden with white head. Aroma is sour, citric acid, lots of barn notes and mild ammonia. Taste is rich and full, nicely balanced acid, some astringent notes and ammonia. Very nice

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Abundant white head with large bubs. Lemon citric acidity, vinegar, leather nose, with light herbal character. Lemon, leather, briney, intensely herbal mid palate, hay, moderate funk. Absurd complexity, changes sip to sip. Really really dry. Among the best geuzes for sure.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blonde or voilee a la tres genereuse carbo. Col moyen persistant.
Aromes complexe pomme verte, vinaigre doux, fleurs et note boisés.
Belle presence meme si je n’accroche pas des masses avec les lambic.
Le petit cote aigre passe difficilement. Toutefois c’est la meilleure de toutes celles testées. les notes boisés prennent le dessus en final pour minimiser l’aigreur.

Bottle. Mighty fine beer. Very woody smell and flavour (as expected) which helps to balance the sourness perfectly. Love it!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 mL bottle from Willow Park Wine and Spirits in Calgary, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy amber with a moderate off-white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of caramel, dust, barnyard, oak, flowers, citrus peel and tart fruit. The flavour is moderately-intensely tart with grapefruit and citrus notes. Hints of oak and flowers come through as well. The finish is long and tart with oak and dust. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth texture and intense carbonation. Overall, this is a nice gueuze; it is quite assertive and tart, one to savour. 2014-03-10

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml green corked and caked bottle, poured into a tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy orange with small white head, that reduced quickly and left no lacing. Aroma of lemon peels, green apples and a hint of barnyard. Flavours of lemon peels, green apples, wheat bread, table grapes and oak wood. Taste is light sweet, light bitter and heavy sourness. Palate is medium-light bodied, smooth texture and lively carbonation. Overall a great Gueuze, liked that the barnyard funky aroma typical for the style, is not as prominent in this beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2011 bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a champagne like fizzy carbonation and an off white foam head. The aroma is barnyard like with a noticeable tart like quantity to it. I also picked up on white grapes, yeast, faint oak, and a sugary sweetness. In tasting I caught on to a semi funky and tart fruit flavor. The white grapes are defined. There was subtle malty tones in the flavor with a pleasant but yet weak bitterness. The finish is full of tart dry fruit that gently fades with a mild semi sweet bitterness. Overall this beverage was very kind to my palate and I enjoyed the blending of flavors here. Age surely has been kind to this batch.

A yellowish orange color with a large fluffy white head. Musty, barnyard, lemon, sour green grapes aroma. Very sour taste along with the green grapes and sour apple. Carbonated and dry finish. Very nice.
