BeerBeCue (103) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 14, 2013
375ml bottle poured into tulip. Pours a rather pure golden with some finger-thick head. Aroma is faint barnyard, green apples, some faint malt base and cider vinegar. Taste is really not the best I’ve had the chance to witness in a geuze or any type of sour ale, generally speaking...Very, very tart. Upon drinking it you soon notice that those green apple aromas are like...interrupted. You can perceive the apple’s tartness but then no sugar content at all...and it then fades away into not much. Mouthfeel is pretty watery with average carbo. Pretty long acidic aftertaste. Overall this is pretty weak compared to a Cantillon gueuze bio, for example, which is so way more complex...this is not "champagne" at all. I had medium-high expectations for this but it was a huge disappointment (especially at 13.99 $ a bottle at le St-Bock). I just wonder if I had a bad bottle, reading the rave reviews this brew had...

First time having this in years. 2012 bottle. Golden pour. Nose is musty, leather, funk, lemon rind. Taste is sharp lemon, musty basement, tart lemony finish. Dry and lingering tartness on the palate. Just as good as the higher rated standard gueuzes. Liked this better than the 2012 3F and Cantillon gueuzes I’ve had recently.

dfearnley (1245) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle to flute Pepper, lemon, syrup, wheat, lemongrass, and barnyard funk. A hazy light amber with a 1 cm frothy head. There’s quite a bit of effervescence which leads to a fairly long retention. Taste is tart and lemony, with a nice funky followup.

Pours a light golden colour with a white head. Very funky aroma, you can almost taste the tartness which is lovely in the actual taste, dry.

Super funky aroma brett wild yeast and foot. Sour dry winey sweet lemon and grape full flavored. Long drying finish. The yeast is immediate but pleasant. Probably the best geuze ive had yet. Oily wet nice carbonation. Fantastic brew.
