[thank you, dedollewaitor]
Pours hazy yellow-golden with a small film head. Aroma is tart, citric and lightly woody. Fine, dry mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasingly tart, well citric and a long woody finish. Very nice, though pretty standard gueuze.

bottle from beergium.com cloudy yellow, small bubbly head.Aroma is tart and sour,has notes of vinegar, funk,, leather, glue. aroma appears pretty strong and sharp. Flavor is tart, vinegar, sweet fruity note, The beer is both very very sour and wild yeasty, and somewhat sweet at the same time, perhaps adjusted with sugar? Perhaps just a coincidence.

Earthy aroma with oak, ctrus and apple. Sour and vinous with apple flavors. Not as deep and complex as Girardin or Cantillon, but certainly a very good traditional geuze.

Bottled @ ’t Brugs Beertje: Light amber coloured. Unclear. Off white dense head. Lasting. Earht, sourness and some acidic notes in the aroma. Flavour not as vivid as the aroma, but still quite delicious. Sourness, some light sweetness and some tarty and earthy flavours that pass into a fruity aftertaste. Quite good without beeing ostentatious.
