3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tosa gathering, bottle provided by Blake: Cloudy golden hue with a lasting frothy head and very good lace. Get the funk out, she is a funky lady...pure cheesy funk with a fruity citric twang and a tad earthy too. The taste is complex and understated and major brett sourness on top of sweet pale malts. Some woody dryness upon the finish. The mouth feel is lively and refreshing. A yummy brew and worth another try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
37.5 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a white head, quickly disappearing but leaving a nice lacing. Dry sweet classica and complex geuze aroma of apples, wood, mould, barnyard. Citric flavoured, very nicely citric sour. Only downside is that this beer is more brutal sour and mouldy in flavour and lacks bit of balance compared to Belle-Vue selection lambic. Otherwise a very nice treat. Dry woody and apple sour finish. Yummy.

A good a gueuze as almost I have tried. If you want to pull that sour gueuze face then this one will do you fine! The only bettergueuze I ever had was a rammy old bottle of Hansens before they went into mass production. This is up with the modern Hansens gueuze.

Pre-RBSG Milwaukee: Bottle thanks to Blake! Poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma, funky, and bready, some yeast, and a touch of lemony sourness. Flavor, tart and funky to start, some woody notes, and a nice sourness to it. Very balanced, my kind of gueuze.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Blake! Poured clear amber (initially) with a short cap white head.. left a creamy ring. Aroma was of sour vinegar notes upfront with dusty, barn-y yeast rolling behind.. nice balance, and a touch milder than the black on all fronts. Heavy vinegar sourness in the flavor with sweet splintery oak notes.. woodiness abounds through the finish along with bunches of vinegar sourness. Sour, but well-played on the palate.. well-balanced and wonderfully tasty!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden body with a big fluffy white head. Funky lactic acid and lemon fronts some sweet wheat malt in the aroma. Balanced malt and sour flavors - lightly toasted wheat under lemony horseblanket. A very solid gueuze - could be more unbalanced IMO.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Honey golden color, small white head. Nose has sour milk, barnyard, glue and earth. Suprisingly sweet with sweet stout like flavors, of course some sourness, barnyardish flavors. Grapefruit and lemon are dominating flavors. Ok lambic, but I liked black version much more.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sour fruit, wood and a lot of barnyard. Flavour is sweetish sour fruits along with some wood and earth. More carbonation than in most gueuzes, but still very smooth. Wellbalanced and quite sour thing. I like.

Bottle shared by the generous Orlando crew! The beer pours to a really sour, musty, feet and barnyard aroma. Clean golden body with a fizzy white head. Tart, sweet, funky, sour, cheesy flavors. Complex. Seems more blended and balanced than the Black Label. The beer is definitely less intense/tart.
