3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
375ml bottle. pours very hazy/cloudy yellow. well... this is my first ever geuze. very different and to be honest, itís really not a style to my taste.Agree with the comparisons to champagne or sparkling wine. aroma is of grapes, flowers and a little yeast. taste... well itís extremely dry. very much like a brut champagne. very very carbonated, fruity and not at all like beer. marks well being neutral on the fact that this isnít for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy medium straw, with a white head.
Funky, yeasty aroma, citrus, Brett, straw, barnyard, apples.
Bone dry, medium bodied, low bitterness, lively CO2.
Sour, funky taste, quite complex, citrus peel, hay, earth, oxidized cider apples.
Quite lean and elegant, and rather "clean" for the style. (2013-05-02)

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is not your average beer, itís a geuze...
A: a nice gold, slightly hazy due to the finest of sediment being set floating by the pouring; pour gently, or youíll end up with more head than liquid in your glass, and it dissipates kinda slowly
S: smells of moist cellars, autumn forest soil, moldy, yeasty, bit tart, only slightly acidic, like the oiliness of lemon zest, no alcohol "bite"
T: tart, lots of sours and bitters, tho not overly "hoppy", yeasty, fairly lightbodied
M: light, but present nonetheless, tickles the tongue
D: very drinkable, goes well with cheeses, especially the stronger ones
A real geuze - an acquired taste perhaps, can take getting used to, but once youíre there, this is one to try for sure.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Tampa Palms WOB (R.I.P.). Pours a cloudy golden orange color with an initial foamy head that quickly fades to a thin outer ring. Very funky aroma even for a geuze. Barnyard funk dominates with subtle tart lemon. Flavor is nice with good tartness in the finish. Dry mouthfeel.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw colored with lots of lacing and a frothy head. Dirt and barnyard and some lemon rind. Dry, with dust and a tart but highly unclean finish. Simple and not in the same league compared to the others I tried tonight.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a store in Leuven. Poured a hazy golden body with a small white head. Glue, dust and nice funk in the aroma, very very light alcohol too though. Fine funky taste, rice crispies, even just a touch sweetish, as odd as it sounds. Extremely balanced Oude Geuze that might appeal to the masses too.

375 ml bottle. Pours a light clear gold with medium head that dissipates quickly. Tart funky barnyard and floral aromas. Surprisingly not as tart as the smell; flavors of citrus, rose hips, wood, and sour candy. Quite nice.
