Bottle. Hazy yellow, tons of carbonation. Huge white head. Sour, musty hay nose. Flavor is tart, gets you that little buzz in the very back of your jawbone. Slightly citrusy and acidic. Dry, dry finish. Really liked this one.

Aroma is grassy, sour and dry. Taste is complex, a light sweetness to start with goes to lemony sourness, then turns juicey but a dry finish. An excellent excellent beer. " Lamp punching good!" due to my smahing of GarethYoungs lamp while drinking the beer.

A lambic for 4 dollars? Sure why not. Pours out orange colored with a thick white head. Smells woody, fruity, sour, sweet, marvelous. Taste is very similar with a nice tart up front and a sweet long lasting end. This is a gueuze done right, probably the best in the style I have had. A pleasure to drink, and my glass was empty far too soon.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & Dave B. -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy golden-orange with an average size somewhat-lasting white head. Great aroma of white wine, funky cheese, some sourness, fruit and more -- nice and complex. Flavour’s a bit of a letdown, for the most part it follows the aroma but it’s a little watery and not as flavourful as I expected -- still pretty good though. If you’re looking for a very compex tasting geuze you may want to look elsewhere but if you want a nice easy to drink, almost "session" geuze, then this will do just fine.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
375 ml bottle thanks to Kramer17801. Very tart and fruity on the nose. Vineous, apple, pear, currant. Tart on the flavor as well, and somewhat bitter. Very grapefruit, but not from hops. Sour at first then bitter, with a bit of a lingering sweetness. But not really sweet, more like just not as dry as I had expected. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (375ml). Shared with blankboy and Dave B, my bottle. Murky orange with a solid white head. Really dusty, sour, funky yeasty - plenty of citrus, tart cider - solid geuze aroma. Flavour is a wee bit of a let-down - quite watery, lemon juice, yeast, funky and sour, peppery, woody but just not .... amazing like the Girardin Black label. Mouthfeel is watery, lightly acidic, sour but quick off the tongue - nice, but not great.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has a pretty nice appearence...Light copper color and big fizzy head. Aroma is bad champagne, sour apples, but not that bad. Flavor is monsterously sour and has some woody/cork flavor. Pretty gross, i don’t know why or how anybody could enjoy this. thank god it’s only a 375 ml bottle.
