37,5cl bottle, 2004. Sparkling deep golden, small loose head. Fruity nose, with nice sourness, wheat and slight metal. Dry and crisply sour flavor, wheat, funk. Faint lemon skin and apple in the finish. Some musty, cheese like cellar. Soothens out with sediment poured in. Solid quality gueuze.

Bottle. Pours out a somewhat cloudy golden/straw color with a nice rocky slightly off white head. Aroma is tart and vinous with some slight fruity notes. Taste is of tart fruit, with some grainiess going on in the background, sour and acidic finish. Well done.

Crushed with Jakebra. Sexy brew. Makes the mouth water like none other. Nast smell and flavor that is really delicious on some weird level. Dont understand how that works but also dont care.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours straw yellow with a big white head that dissapates quickly. Very funky barnyard, dank, vinigary aroma. At first smell I wasn’t too sure about this one, but it grew on me. I was a bit worried about tasting it, since I know Gueuze can be a handful, but really enjoyed the taste. A perfect sour/tart bite with some fruits in there as well. I was pleasently suprised!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2010 Pours amber with a large, bubbly white head, short lived though. Nose is a little one-sided with the leather, though citrus, dust, and that faint Girardin honey-ish malt are here. Flavor is world class, just an incredible mix that’s still tart, dusty, and leathery, yet there’s also a warm stink that evolves into soft fruit, meeting the juicy citrus at the back of your throat like two roads coming back together. Palate is equally superb, like drinking glittering cobweb juice; lush and sparkling yet perfectly dry and never burdensome or watery. The refreshing qualities remind me a lot of the Cantillon. Top notch stuff here.
Several tastings later and this is a bit less sweet, less complex Cantillon Oude Geuze. It lacks the balance and complexity of Girardin Black and the funk of 3 Fonteinen.

Lovely sour frutiy smell and a long lasting sourness lingers on a long time after drinking this down. Brilliant stuff.

This is the first Gueuze I have had in a while. I thought it was very fresh, which may account for the higher rating. This was dry, crisp, and a bit tart. Perfect for a fall evening nightcap!

Bottle Pours out a cloudy gold topped with a soap head. Aroma of sour and tart fruit along with some sweetness. Tast lots of tart again. Along with plenty of pucker.
