Bottle, and I’m presuming that this is the same thing as "Mort Subite Original Gueuze". Cool...looks like I’m going to overrate this one big time, but dammit, I liked this stuff a lot. Complex sweet, wheaty aroma of very slight perfume, enticing but masking the sharp-but-measured flavor to follow. A great gueuze made better by drinking it in beautiful weather in Antwerp in front of Onze-Lieve-Vrourwkathedral. And if any Flemish folks are reading this and I just butchered your cathedral name between copying it from a sign into my notebook and then trying to read what was my handwriting after a few beers, I sincerely apologize. Natural nouthfeel that lasts like fine chocolates. And I almost forgot about the taste - nectarines, peaches, a little sugar, wheat, and maybe some vague chocolate/leather/horseblanket. Masterful!

A me e’ piaciuta molto! Proprio il genere in se mi e’ piaciuto molto! Chissa come votero’ altre birre dello steso genere considerate dei must! Cmq si presenta molto bene ottimo aroma acido che si riconferma nel sapore assieme a sentori di frutta! Buon retrogusto non molto persistente!

pours with a big white sturdy head .. . lacing is ridiculous .. . light white sugar, wood, and cherry aromas .. . similar flavours as the nose, people friendly .. . delicious really .. . these jaguars can be really tricky, so i’m gonna hit it in the face ...

Draught at Mort Subite bar, Brussels. Excellent palate on this beer. Light amber color. Huge, lacing head. Sour, barnyard aroma. Sour in the flavor as well. Very earthy, with a light flavor of cooked meat. Served at room temperature. Very nice. I imagine the freshness of this beer has helped.

[314-20070513] 375mL (c/o tuqueboy). Sour/tart fruit characteristics in the aroma are light and pleasant. Clear, brown amber body has lots and lots of tiny bubbles and some bubbly lacing. Quite unexpected sweet flavour. Medium body has a nice sour texture. Very lovely!

This beer was my introduction to gueuze, and it served its job admirably. MS Gueuze might not be as tart and sour as some of the more highly rated gueuzes (e.g., Cantillon, which I enjoy), but for someone just learning about the beer, it is an excellent first step. Refreshing without being too tart. Notably carbonated. If this beer gets you into gueuzes, but then you move on, then it has done a fine job.

Given the opportunity, Gueuze would be my beverage of choice. Living in the swamps of North Florida, the opportunities to drink it are sadly, quite limited.
I’m happy to say that I’ve had better, but not by much. The company that produces this beer has nothing to be ashamed of. I’d pay $5 or $6 a bottle if I could buy it locally.
