Pours orange with a slight haze. Head rises fast but dissipates quickly. Nose is all lambic, sour, slightly citrus. Flavor is tart and refreshing with lots of lambic character and sour apple. One of my favorite gueuzes.

Interesting beer. Very Champagnish. Almost cider like taste. Sour hints, but very easy to drink.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Looks like hazy butterscotch with a very nice fluffy white head. Constant stream of lively carbonation. Aroma of peaches and apples, sour, malty and kind of chalky. Taste is lots of malt and sour fruit. Burst of carbonation and tang that fades into a smooth, velvety fininish that lasts. Very, very nice. Think I got this baby through a trade but it has been so long I can’t remember who I got it from. Thanks to whomever you are - this was a pleasure.

Pours a hazy straw color with just a hint of rose, this head dissipates quickly. Aroma is pears, grapes, , slight citrus, a yeasty smell, and a sweet honey-ish smell. Flavor is sweet initially, though not overly so. Lemon leads, then a great sour sensation, what resembles bitter orang peel, malty underones throughout. Palate is amongst the finest I have ever encountered. My first Geuze, but definitely entices me to try more.

Just amazing beer Perfect pairing to a Thai lemon grass soup. Tart and beautiful beer that dances on the tongue and makes you wish you had much more.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to Cheri for sharing this. A yellow copper color with loads of carbonation. The aroma is mainly vinegar and lemons. Some funk is definitley present. The flavor is quite sour with some apples, lemons, vinegar, and cheese. A very dry dusty mouthfeel as well. Not as sour as some Ive had but very good.

After reading about the odd flavors found in this style, I’ve been curious to try a gueuze. Pours a cloudy apricot color with lots of carbonation and a creamy head. Aroma is of a foot locker (strange, this actually isn’t a bad thing in this case) with an apple and moldy cheese thrown in. Flavor still carried tart apples, vinegar, and WOW! The finish is like concentrated lemon juice! I’m puckering big time! I enjoyed this...thanks, Wunderbier!

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2005 375ml bottle, BB 2073! cork has SB 22 on it...Slightly murky orange/copper color, white head, racing bubbles...cellar temp...Powerful aroma...Maybe lemony, hay, granny smith, some sort of citrus juice rubbed on leather...Can you smell tartness?? Tart, berries, raspberry & blackberry...In the mouth it is quick to the punch. Very light bodied and short...the finish is where it jumps out. Tart berries...not so much what I taste, but what I feel. Still a sort of lemony/leather interplay, and maybe a touch of sweetness??? no it is quite dry, but I get a subliminal sweet tone set alongside the acid...lingers leaving suggestions of earth, wood, peels, apples, and maybe even malt. I suppose this is the beer world’s lemonade. As I linger over it, I think I can almost pick up a faint hop spice in the aroma...maybe I’m on drugs or maybe just Brett... listening to M Ward’s Transister Radio. Nice, mellow, and full of wierd layers & echoes...like this beer.;

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 orange coloured beer with a big ivory creamy head. Aroma is full of apple and honey. Taste is very sour with notes of apple, honey and old farm barnyard. The aftertaste ends in sweetness.

Glorious. Amazing. Balanced. Why did they stop brewing? A truly tragic loss. I have to go buy their kriek now.
