3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Rather clear, deep golden colour with a small white head. The aroma acidic and fruity with some oakiness in the background. Fruity flavours, sour yoghurt and woodiness in the middle. Ends semi-dry. Soft for a geuze and medium-bodied. Not the greatest oude geuze, but still highly enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dutch Ratebeer Gathering. Clear orange coloured, small white head. Typical gueuze nose, quite fruity, promising. Flavour’s not able to match this though, nicely sour (not sweetened) but not as complex as most other Oude Gueuzes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6th Dutch Ratebeer Gathering. Very, very fruity. Apple. A bit too much for me, my taste will grow too like it I think :) Flavour quickly fades away, it’s apple, epple, apple. A bit sour. Overall interesting and nice too get to know the gueuzes.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled: Orange coloured. Hazy. Dense off white head. Aroma has some nice sweetness and a light sourness. Not very tart and earthy. So,e fruits and berries. Flavour as well has more sweetness than sourness, but still nice. Light earthy and some horseblanket. This is not a very demanding gueuze, but still quite nice and refreshing. Ends on a sweet sournote:

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 6th DRG. Very easy for a geuze but still a good traditional one. Aroma is tart, oak, fruity, hints of horseblanket. Cloudy, yellow color, off-white head, fair lace. Sour (hints of vinegar), barnyard, fruity. Great flavors actually but those disappears very fast.
