Pours a light copper color with medium white head that hangs around. Aroma of fruit, apples, wildflower, slightly musty. Taste is sweet tart, apples and oranges, slighly watered down, hints of cheddar. Could be a bit more dry in the finish.

A dark evening with loads of candles. . . the wood of the picnic table has taken on an aroma of the earth caused by the mud-coated legs. . . a nearby light post has several cobwebs sporting small spiders. A nice sourness combines well with the meal, but the sweetness is especially nice with desert. What a night.

Bottle Conditioned. Orange brown with moderate head. Sour apple flavours within a bready yeast flavour. Tart and crisp but mellows to a sickly sweetness.

immediate sourness followed by some fruit and must, earthiness and a touch of animal aroma. interesting and complex but unremarkable as I tasted. That said, I'd be interested in drinking a whole bottle myself.

Bottle. Pale, average head. Smells like a Whopper (from Burger King). Thick and sweet flavor, pear and peach nectar. Tart with a sour finish that mellows out nicely as it warms. Well-done, except I'm still wondering about that Whopper smell.

Smells like a sesame seed bun. Murky, light appearance. Alcoholic, citris nose. Hugely sour and tart lemon flavor with a hint of cantaloupe.

My first lambic, so forgive me if I'm not well-rehearsed. Copper colored, aroma of apples and basements. Initially sweet with a sour/tart taste coming through after. Dry finish. Pretty good, definitely interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
As I sat at the tasting session, my nose fixated on the overwhelming aroma of a flame broiled burger at Burger King, and I was most pleased to find that this description reverberated with many others around the table. Some fruitiness comes out in the aroma as wel. The flavor has a nice sour edge hitting the jaw, suggestive of apricot, but otherwise it is a pretty plain gueuze. Unlike Burger King, they don't do it my way.

I believe this is my first geuze. ...At least, that I remember. Fairly yellow appearance, nothing special, but the aroma - it smells like Burger King. The home of the Whopper. [insert trademark] It's a bit sweet, and overall midly pleasing, but you just can't get over that lettuce, mustard, flame-broiled beef.

Copper glow to it with a soapy head and a yeasty farmhouse musty basement aroma. Super sweet like a rice crispy treat. Actually tastes like eating a sugar packet. Not much going on past the ultra sugarness.
