Draft @ Novare Res. Pours a peachy gold with two finger white head that sticks to the glass... Bright aromas of dusty funk and sour lemony fruit even a hint of orange rind. On the palate its solid carbomation delivers a complex barrage of flavors ranging from light soft peach to a dank basement funk ...dusty dry funk bomb on the finish !

On tap at the brewery for Toer de Gueuze 2015. Clear burnt orange pour with a white head. Mild sour citrus bouquet. Sour lemon and citrus highlights. Good body and mouthfeel.

Draught@source, SA&SU TdG 2015. This slightly less complex, yet much more sessionable draught version of the stellar gueuze offers an inviting crash course in natural lemonade-style fruity tartness of fresh squeezed lemons and the odd green apple peel thrown in, combined with a quenching, but not lipsmacking dryness and invigourating effervescence. Teasing wine vinegar prickles, kept in check. Not as much funky complexity, cheesy notes as their special blend lambics, but straight-up light & summery goodness, rounded off with a nice astringent old hop note. Would have this on draft more regularly if only available anywhere in the civilised world outside of the blending hall’s perimeter.

Fast klare kräftig goldene Farbe, geinge weiße Schaumkrone. Geruch trocken, säuerlich fruchtig, pelzig, holzig. Geschmack ziemlich sauer, holzig, pelzig, Kraut, zum Ende nimmt die Säure deutlich ab, gut!

Keg at The Cask. Session geuze yeah! Nothing much to add other than this is slightly lighter version of one of the classics. Easily drinkable all day. Lovely dry mild sourness with oodles of dusty character.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 On tap at Moeder Lambic, Brussels. Pours a slightly hazy golden color, topped with a fairly small white head. Earthy, cellar aroma, with soury cider-like quality. Taste follows the aroma - some fruity notes at first, soury taste with earth notes. Some herbal feel to it in the end. A really decent one.

Alengrin (2938) - BELGIUM - APR 26, 2015
Geuze on tap, but the brewer eagerly explained to me that according to the definitions, it still qualifies as an ’oude geuze’, since lambic are simply blended in kegs to referment. Interesting... Thin but stable, snow white head, misty golden blonde colour. Lovely aroma of white grape peel, old sherry, hay, green apple, yoghurt, some wet leather, lemon zest... Crisp and very refreshing taste with sharpish apple acidity, lime and softer, sweetish fruits, background wheat sourishness, medium carbo, medium body, long and dryingly tart finish with all the lambic complexity, bit woody, very quenching. As good as any traditional geuze, but perhaps a bit less ’seasoned’, complex and mature than a geuze from the bottle.

Shared with wim at Zythos bierfestival 2015. Clear blond colored beer with small white head and no carbonation. Fruited aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is sweet fruited sour. Nice!

asheft (2667) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2015
On tap. Pungent lambic burnt match and white grape aroma. Slightly hazy light orange with little white wisps. Very dry, sour beer with less burnt match than aroma. Gentle pickle juice, woody white grape, crisp and watery clean finish. Light body, moderate carbonation, mouth puckering.

AgentAle (958) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
Aroma is an earthiness, funkiness, sour grapes and vinegar. Taste is again a funkiness, heavy acidity and vinegar. Finishes tangy. Appearance is a cloudy gold/orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Gerbeer (2221) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2015
On tap. Pours a hazy gold with very little head. Aromas of barnyard, apples, peaches, and cheese. Flavors of apples, pears, and apricots with a bit of malt and citrus. A little less tart, but smoother and creamer than the bottled version.
