2013 bottle which I was surprised to find at Euston tap. This is an awesome Geuze with all the attributes you would expect. One not to miss if you have the chance to try.

Bottle at RBWG 2016. Thanks Theydon. Nose is very barny and funky. A touch of lemon. Very hazy deep yellow to orange. Taste is moderately zesty with a touch of wood and zest. Lightly acidic. Pretty nice.

Belgianloner (12) - 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.

umich03jm (3101) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Bottle. Big funky aroma of cotton, lemon juice, lime, light strawberry and light barnyard. Tastes super funky. Big strawberry and lime. Light sweetness that comes off a bit artificial. Light sourness. Very dry finish. Solid but not amazing.

Vignale (2852) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2016
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. 2011 vintage. Disig orange vätska, lätt kolsyrad. Frisk och syrlig doft med en hel del stallkaraktär, syrliga äpple, fat. Kraftig, stor kropp, lätt sötma men också väldigt torr. Har allt man vill ha i en bra gueuze. Rejäl men mjuk syra, funk, stall, syrliga äpplen, fat, torr eftersmak med lätt beska. Fantastisk gott.

750ml cork and cage bottle at home, as ’HORALs Oude Geuze Mega Blend’ 2013 vintage bottled Oct 2012, #13040, 7%. Hazy vibrant orange, lightly sparkling, compact foamy white head. Aroma is sherbet, plastic, dirty russet apples, coriander, toasted bread. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is semi-sweet, vanilla, lemon zest, dried apricots, more sherbet, lightly sour, fruity white wine. This is an unbelievably good beer. Best sour I’ve tried so far by a country mile.
