A golden hue sets off the wonderful almost champagne like taste.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a straw-colored yellow/golden hue, with an ample white head. The nose shows decided Brettanomyces character, along with a less aggressive level of acidity. As the sample opens up, a musty note also comes through, perhaps from the corked packaging. Together, the combination is utter and absolutely pleasing. The palate shows a lactic tart note up front, followed by some pleasing grassy/hay/farmhouse Brett character, and an absolutely bone-dry finish. The melange of pleasing flavors and aromas is outstanding. Carbonation is assertive, but not overly so, supporting the aromas and flavors, rather than detracting from them. The finish is nicely tart, leathery, and dry. Overall, an outstanding example of the style, even if it is widely available.

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 (1246) - 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.
