3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Golden, hazy, small and stable white frothy head, malic acid, citric acid and traces of peppermint(?) in the nose, light wheaty-grainy touch, a bit cellary, too; moderate sour flavour, accompanied by a light bitterness, medium bodied, a bit fizzy(!); lingering and a bit warming citrussy-cellary finish. Yes, well balanced and moreish Gueuze…

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Edmunds Oast. Clear deep golden pour with a fluffy white head. This is seriously one of the biggest noses one a Geuze I’ve ever smelled, huge skunky, hay, blue cheese, sweaty aroma with lemon peels and tart citrus. Flavor is deliciously funk forward and complex with layers of yeast character and earth with tart citrus peels. Dry sour finish. SO FUCKING GOOD.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
(backlog) 2011 Bottle at DHL. Orange pour with tan head. Aroma has nice funk and tart tones similar to a cantillon gueze, nice funky tartness and leather. Tartness, oak and unfortunately lacks a little focus in flavor.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow! Ça sent acidulé et complexe. Le cuir, le funky, le citron et une multitude d’autres saveurs explosent en bouche. C’est méga raffraichissant. Il y a même une belle petite mousse! Une excellente bière qui n’a comme seul défaut de me faire regretter de demeurer au Québec où les bonnes bières importées faciles à obtenir se comptent sur les doigts d’une main. Mium!

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2013, Bottle #25189 @ home 20140708. Cloudy straw colored liquid, dense compact white head with excellent head retention (there is still head after 15 minutes in the glass). Light, a bit vinous aroma with funk, apples, cherries. Taste is very complex yet perfectly well balanced with funk, grain, oak, green apples, vanilla, cherries, green grapes. Medium, refreshing lactic and citric sourness. A tannin twang, perhaps a tiny bit too much. Wow.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared 75cl bottle with a friend 2013. Poured cloudy golden colour with a white head. Lemons, hay, apples, harsh, vineous notes. Smooth sour mouthfeel. But for me it’s a bit overdone and to complex, blending so many beers. But again still very tasty

Bottle 09936 from 2009. Amber with light foam ring. Very big salty scent. Big taste. Airy body. Seems pretty lively, maybe it needs to rest for more than 5 years. Crisp. Cider and apple notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml corked bottle (2013 - Bottle #7274) pours a slightly hazy golden color with a huge white head that retains quite well and leaves some spotted lacing behind. Aroma is lemons and lemon zest with some grains and woody notes. Taste is a lemon sourness with a malty and fruity sweetness finishing dry. Medium bodied with generous carbonation leaving a nice tingle on the palate. A good brew for the style.
