Megablend 2015, always nice to find a geuze in my travels. Has ever so modest head and a great foggy peach body with just a hint of carbonation. Aroma of must, hay, lemon-soaked shoe leather, rotting orange juice - in other words, an awesome geuze smell. Taste is absolutely perfect for a geuze - lots of citrus balanced out by earthy notes, and the mouthfeel is perfection. Lite and dry on the mouth, crisp carbonation dancing - yeah, I said it, dancing! All frilly and that I tells ya, this is really good stuff. One of those rare beers worth travelling the world to find.

Belgianloner (40) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2016
2015 Vintage: AROMA: Musty, dank, mellow tropical fruits, maybe even medicinal but on a very low level. APPEARANCE:Blonde going on for golden, huge white head nearly escaped the glass though it quickly diminished into a lasting wispy one. TASTE: Not as Intense as one might imagine, quite a spritzy bugger. Sourish, although those who don’t drink Gueuze regularly may take that as a pinch of salt. Just overall not the most intense Gueuze but still very good. PALATE: Long lasting dank aftertaste with an low level of of tropical fruit and over ripe green apples. OVERALL: Please take this in context. A good Gueuze however not the best from the country. Still am excellent example though and I have 4 bottles of it cellaring which is testament to its quality. Really, really good but not one of the best.
