This is probably the most special beer I have ever tasted. The foam is limited, and the flavor is very difficult to define. It smells a bit of yeast and anything else that I can not completely assess. The taste is only very sweet, but decreases slowly to a slightly sour taste. Finally appears the delicate taste again, and this time I feel that it is perhaps a little apple.

Puckering, yet sticky sweet. Light syrup to the body. Prickly carbonation that doesn’t let go. Nice feel.

Klar rødbrun farge med noe skum rundt glasskanten.Lukter sure bær, eple og litt gjær.Smaker veldig eple og mye sødme. God syrlig avslutning. Kjenner også fruktsmaken lenge.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Tough aroma on this one.....not something I’m enjoying....sweetish yet sour notes abound. A dark amber color...minimal head. Flavor is initially sweet..sugary...sourness comes in late and hard. Meets the style requirements..just not a very enjoyable drink.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
Belle bière cuivrée au reflets roses, à peine voilée et couverte dune fine écume créant une légère dentelle au verre. Des arômes riches de framboises, de raisin blanc et d’agrumes. Elle est bien aigre et assez sucrée. Elle est lisse, très effervescente, de corps léger et se termine sur de longs arômes et une aigreur rafraichissante

Rando7 (776) - Iowa, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle pour gives clear light reddish-brown color with thin brief white head. Aroma mainly sour and funky. Taste sweet with cherries, apples, candi sugar blended with sour fruits. Palate fairly thick and carbonated. Finish brief and slightly sour. No alcohol taste to speak of and didn’t taste any hops. The style is unique and that is probably the determining factor on whether you will enjoy this beer

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2006
Cloudy red/copper with a large frothy head. Aroma is quite sour, compost, and very sweet candy. The flavour is equally candy sweet/acid sour with some nice dark fruit and nut flavours too. Sour fruity finish and aftertaste.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2009
375ml bottle. Pours a deep golden/copper color, much darker than most Geuezes. A fluffy substantial head is formed and has good retention. Aroma shows floral and spicy elements, not much traditional funk though some esters are noticeable underneath. Candy, skittles, slight earthiness and pepper. Flavor is sweet and very candy like. Sugar is very noticeable and tastes more like sugar than sweet beer. This is very different. Lots of sweet candy flavor which is not something I’m used to. People who don’t like beer would be all over this. I prefer more traditional lambics. At least I finally got to try this style.
