Draft. Large white head, murky amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, lemon, lacto, some funk. Taste is medium sweet, lemon/tart, lacto, some barnyard. Light-medium body, soft, some acidity. Delicious -- definitely worth the hype.

Draft at Louie’s Coup in Groppi’s. The beer pours to a super hazy straw colored body with a slick creamy starch white head. The aroma is sour with notes of pineapple and light funky straw. The flavor is sour mash with some brett funk and acidic sour pineapples. The palate is sour and yet crisp and clean. Funky brett.

On draft at the De Heeren 20th Anniversary party during last week’s trip to Belgium. Reviewed from notes. Served in a HORAL mini tumbler. Pours a nice golden-yellow color with a good, stable white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose brought quite a bit of nice funk and bright citrus. Lots of lemon and orange zest and some citric acid. The flavor was very citrusy with light funk and a moderate acidic presence. Light body with good carbonation and a very dry finish. Nice acidity throughout. A very impressive beer. I hope to have this more often.

Tap at Rattle n hum - nice lactic notes, caramel malts, delicate fruits - apples and berries. Fizzy body which enhances the impression from the lactic acid, with an edge of acetic. Pretty well balanced, could drink a lot of this stuff. Lacks the complexity of a cantillion offering, but no complaints either.

Hazy Pale Straw with thin white head. Very active carbonation. Sharp yeasty nose. Light body. lemon + brett notes with hint of white wine vinegar. slightly dry lingering finish. Very satisfying

Tap at Churchkey. The pour is a cloudy gold with a diminishing white head. Nose at first is not really hitting all the geuze marks: a little too much white wine and aceto character similar to something like Jolly Pumpkin Bambic. As it warms, sharp nectarine and plum come through with saltwater and plums. With more time the nose opens up into something really spectacular- not as Brett heavy and Cantillon like as I remember the bottled version of this geuze; but actually more Cable Car like its its powerful nectarine, pineapple, plum, and mild white wine vinegar. Very nice. Taste is dry and woody with lemon, white grapefruit, and white wine. Tinge of aceto character. Not as fresh and floral as the bottled version. Still, powerful, salty, spicy, green apple sour, quenching, and lively on the palate. Leathery and softly lactic on the palate. Fruity, leathery, woody. Very good.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2013 Draft at Churchkey. Hazy golden pour with a beautiful frothy head. Nice ose of acidic lemon, tart wheat, hay, a touch of peach, and light basement/cobweb. Flavor holds more tart unripe fruit and lemon; decidedly bright and young for a lambic, as is expected without that 3 year old blended in. Still good carbonation, not too dry on the finish, and pretty solid..... Rerate 2/4/13 draft at Churchkey. Now that the 3 year old is incorporated there’s WAY more length and complexity to the flavor. Very very good gueuze.

Tap @ BBF:NOTF. Nose is lemon, woody, low acidity, quite complex funk - I don’t know if I’m dreaming but I swear I can pick the cantillon character out of the mix. Flavor is nice & woody, funky horse blanket brett, lemon, strawberry. Pithy bitterness.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2011 Splendida gueuze fatta come dio comanda, molto rinfrescante sacrifica un po’ della complessità della "oude".

Questa gueuze alla spina è davvero meravigliosa, perfetta nell’aroma e al palato, complimenti vivi. Non si dimentica...
