UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 Bottle, 7%. Very nice earthy, citric aroma, smells like 3 Fonteinen. Hazy dark golden colour. Sparkling, leaving a small bubbly white head. High carbonation. The flavour is sweeter than expected, still nicely earthy. Good citric flavour, very well-rounded. Mild and pleasant. The carbonation is too high for me, the flavour gains a lot after the beer has been swirled around a bit. 8 3 9 3 20

traPISSED (99) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 25, 2010
Bottle 75cl at home. I was very excited to try a Geuze that contained so many base lambics and this one lived up to my expectations. The nose is very similar to the 3F Geuze. Very lively and fresh with plenty of Brett and funk. The sourness is there but its a great balance and compliments the beer. I hope that this is made again! My favourite Geuze so far.

Pours out gold with lots of bubbles. Smells sour and somewhat funky. Flavor is quite tart with some mild funkyness. Great citrus and sour fruit flavors. Not sweet, nice dry mellow finish. A great Geuze.

Amazing megablend 2011, lovely sour taste. If u have the chance try these beer. Blonde color and rich aroma. The bretta feeling is really strong and extremely persistent.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - APR 13, 2011
Seriously this is one of the best beer I’ve ever had. It was of course acidic but also rather flowery with wonderful sweet notes. Had it on a small street bar in Brussels and hated myself for not buying these cheap when I had the chance. Dear Pierre - thank you for selling this to us.

Marheb (1742) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
Un assemblage alléchant et complexe qui laisse briller des notes de chlorophylle, carambole, citron, foin et levure. Magistrale élégance.

Big thanks goes out to Kevin MrChopin for this special brew! Had the pleasure of sampling this at the 7/9/2009 Pittsburgh RB tasting extravaganza (PGHRBEXT) at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse. It will be a long time, if ever I see a spread of bottles like I did there. I am not good enough for the beers that were that we served! For example, how about this beer; Horal bottle #58! Smell is quite like tart candy with a funky farmy background. Good initial taste sensations, wew, simply very tasty. Big foamy pour and a slight haze on an otherwise pale lager appearance. Lacks the typical funk but is just plain fun on the tastebuds. Very nice tingly palate. One fine enjoyable brew. Sour, tart and easy. Some mild bitterness but nothing detracting. Very excellent beer tasting experience. Love those sour brews, my favorite! Wish I had more of this stuff!

Nate (3549) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Sampled at the ’09 RBPTE, courtesy of MrChopin. Great funky sour nose, with barnyard and horse blanket, tons of Brett and a light hop presence. Citrusy. Light amber hazy body with a large frothy white lacing head. Medium thin body with lively carbonation and a chalky finish. Moderate bitterness with huge sour funky flavors throughout and into the after with a chalky end. Terrific gueuze.
