Bottle shared at home. Slight hazy orange golden with fizzy long lasting white head. Light lemon, quite funky, gooseberries, sour grains, light herbs, lactic. Lots of farmyard notes with light plastic, diesel and earth. Light sweet and under medium sour. Medium bodied with champagne like carbonation.

mathieuc (3318) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2015
Pop! Pours a sparkling golden with a nice medium white head that leaves nice lacing and is replenished by nice bubble streams. Nose is of apple, champagne, light cheese. Taste is nicely tart with green apples impressions again. Dry. Festive. Body is light and carbonation moderately high. Oak is pretty much perfectly integrated. Really refreshing and strangely comforting, just what I needed tonight!

ninecats (486) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2015
75 cl bottle, best before 2034. Hazy orange, fairly big white foam dissipating fairly slow for the style, leaving no real lacings. Aroma is sour candy, apple, funk, hay, orange, citrus, vinegar. Taste is sour but not overly tart, semi bitter, apple, grass, elder-flower, dryness with more apple in the finish. Medium to big body, musty texture, low to medium carbo. Tasty, refreshing.

tricksta_p (3530) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of tart fruits, citrus, lemon, wood, barnyard funk. Flavour is medium sour with a very dry finish. Body is medium, carbonation is rather intense. A mild and pleasant Geuze, enjoyable.

jgb9348 (5677) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Crisp, and very slightly hazy golden coloured body with some orange and copper highlights and a dense, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of super sour grapes, yeast, flowers, berries and the amazing mouth-watering scent of a great geuze. Light-bodied; Strong grassy flavour with some sour notes and herbs noticeable, all with a light sweetness, some yeast and the great sour geuze flavour. Aftertaste is great and mouth-watering with a nice robust flavour that is not as complex and dry as other geuze, but still nice. Overall, a very nice geuze with a solid complexity and a light finish - great to sample yet another from this style and definitely well worth packing across the Atlantic! I sampled this 37,5 cL corked and caged bottle, purchased from Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium on 18-January-2015 for €4,95 sampled at home in Washington after running the USMC Marathon on 25-October-2015.

ciocanelu (1319) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 29, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Hazy golden color with white fluffy head. Aroma has a good amount of lambic funk, the more clean type with hay, barnyard and earthy notes. Taste starts quite sour and also the bitterness is pretty strong for a gueuze. Alcohol is also a bit too present for the style. Body is medium and the carbonation is on the high side. My favorite thing about this beer is the aroma but overall it’s a pretty solid and complex gueuze.

rikstar (2243) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2015
Kleine fles in de trein onderweg naar borefts. Goudgeel wet een witte kraag. Mooi zuur aroma en smaak niet te heftig, met wat overrijpe mandarijnen. Niet verkeerd
