3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. This is called Girardin Gueuze 1882, but it has a white label, so I guess it is the same. Wonderful white lasting head on a crystal clear, amber beer. Aroma is sharp and acidic. Flavor is more mild than the aroma indicates and it seems that there are some caramel sweetness present (which is also found in the Faro from this brewery). Ends dry with a metallic aftertaste. Quite refreshing - the fruitiness and the malt profile makes it quite drinkable.

well, you never know quite what to expect with a geuze aroma... i got some funky jalepeno cheese, some hay and straw, some fun barnyard animal smells (funk would love it), some whitefish and salmon, and some heavy paper. the flavor definitely had some fishy taste to it, along with some swiss cheese, some warheads, and some pennies. very dry finish

Looks like a copper pipe and is fairliy transparent. White to off white head with mild foaminess. Hardcore barnyard strawberry aroma. Lots of funk up inside this one. Sour lemon balls are also present. Lots of funky cheese goin on in the body and slightly dry.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 25 cl) Pretty amber colour with a tall head (a bit unusual for a gueuze). Rather sophisticated nose of...."sour nuts"? All the lovely, complex gueuze flavours are here: shipyard, ahem sorry - barnyard, mold, sweat - all trditionel delicacies.... But my stomach always goes bananas after gueuze... Bring in the Lanzo - a whole bucketful please. 221199

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 Soft, silky white head on a golden-copper body that was mostly clear minus a few stray floaties. Fantastic, deep bouquet of barnyard, toasty wheat, black tea leaves, a note of vanilla, and dried orange peels. Flavors of grain bread, wild yeast, and a note of vanilla. Lightly puckering sourness and some very mild, balancing sweetness. Definitely one of the most interesting gueuzes I’ve encountered. Carries an extra layer of depth.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fine warm-orange color with nice snow-white head. Very refreshing aroma’s of rubarbe-jam, agrum fruits unripe nuts, birchwood and the root of a tree. Good soury attack and nice woody structure. The taste is on the dry side and has the crispyness of unripe exotic fruits with the bitter edge of lime zest and grapefruits. A nice refreshing beer that is less massive and expressive than the Black Label.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden, creamy white head. Acidic and tart aroma of grapefruit and wood. Woody and tart flavour of grapefruit and white grapes. Short grapefruity aftertaste. No nearly as good as the unfiltered version.
