Very complex. Slightly mild compared to other top class geuzes. Not very offensive, but still absolutely wonderful.

Hazy yellow-amber. Slightly speckled, off-white head. Vinous aroma of leather, lemon, pepper & barnyard. Light, dry feel. Complex flavour of leather, lemon, pepper, wood, wine, malt vineger, & sharp cheese.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy golden-orange. Large, long lasting, white head. Great aroma; little sweet, woody, acidic, cheese (an Italian one I can't recall the name of...). Taste is also a little sweet with apples, citrus and acidity. Full bodied but finishes thinner...

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful pour--hazy golden yellow and a big, fluffy white head each fill about half the glass. Nose is sharp with notes of lemon, orange, earthy cobwebs, and hay. Somewhat more reserved in flavor but still quite tart with the straw notes becoming more pronounced. A touch watery but lively carbonation keeps its palate alive. A nice, refreshing gueuze, truly the champagne of beers.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A cold fall day when the hay has turned crisp, brittle. . . The last of the granny smiths are being picked and the chilly breeze carries their extra tart aroma through the air. . . The addition of sour lemons, soft leather, musty grey earth, and cold stone coupled with an intense carbonation causes a quick shiver to pass through the body. Finding nothing to warm me but a small horse blanket, I curl up under one of the apple trees and take in the hazy butterscotch sunset, while chewing on tart, sour apple.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells kind of like stinky feet, but is somehow appealing. Flavor is very sour, with a bit of fruitiness. Makes my whole mouth tighten up with each sip. Cloudy, light, golden color. Very different, and very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. Very acetic in every sense. I have learned that I can only drink one lambic a night, then I need to switch to a non spontaneously fermented ale.

Good geueze with all the classic sensations. Not as pronounced as the best ones in this style but highly drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy blond geuze with a small head. The aroma is sour and rubber. The taste is much more bitter than I remember, but maybe this was a fresh one. The taste is sour , acidic, bitter with hints of fruit. Stockpile this excellent geuze while you can. Thew brewery is closing down.
