3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Bishop Arms Folkungagatan, pours a clear golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma of tart citric fruits, some barnyard funk, and lemon -- very citrusy nose. Flavour brings out dry lemon, low funky qualities, sour citrus fruits, and yeast. Quite tart and citrusy, with little of the traditional Belgian gueuze qualities. Decent, but leaves much to be desired.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy, light orange.
Aroma is crispy sour, cider-ish... Very dry.
Taste is round and dry sour, but rounds into a nice, sweet tart. A hint of pepper.
Allround, a nice sour, hard to detect the hops and feel the effects of it, but very nice..

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really nice surprise. Wasn’t expecting much from this one but it was one of the best gueuzes I ever had. Tart and funky smell and taste is very well balanced. Not overly sour with great body making it very drinkable and refreshing. The dry hopping also adds a nice hoppy twist. Excellent beer!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is a weird mixture of grassy tones, red fruits, hay, wine gum, beetroot juice, berries, barnyard funk and hints of cinnamon and herbs. Hard to describe, really. Taste is lemons, citric peel, hay, grass, barnyard funk, wine gum, rhubarb, red fruits, beetroot juice and hints of herbs and wood. Medium to light body, medium to high carbonation. Whooa there, this is really weird. Gives a whole new meaning to the term "funky". Not sure if I like it, but Betelgeuze certainly is the most out-there experimental-tasting beer I’ve had in a while. :-P
