COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Jado (719) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2015
375 ml bottle. Clear amber body topped by a tight lasting white head. Moderate carbonation. Lemon zest, barnyard funk, vinegar and flowers on the nose. Brightly sour taste with a lemon hit and champagne like flavours. The champagne theme continues in the mouthfeel. Sour fruity aftertaste. Excellent example of the style.

On tap. Little white head. Clear golden color. Brett, rum, white wine, dusty aromas. Flavor of grapes and lemon. Dry finish. Sour. Overall: nice lambic. But maybe with some complexity will be better.

Icedwarf (1013) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2015
Helder lichtgeel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is friszuur, droog met fruitig frisse druiven. Heeft wat weg van een goede wijn.

Franckg (777) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 Bouteille embouteillée en novembre 2014, bue après 11 mois. Robe orangée pâle surmonté d’un col de mousse épais, léger et trés actif, encouragé par une effervescence survoltée. Arômes de lambics, pommes à fois surettes et légèrement sucrées, bois, lime. Nez typique des bonnes gueuzes. Très intense, invitant, belle complexité. En bouche, fin pétillement agréable suivis d’un gout de lambics superbes. Un côté à la fois fruité et acide se développe dans un équilibre irréprochable. Encore une fois, pommes (plus surettes ici), citron, lime. Une transition vers des saveurs plus boisées ou les levures viennent faire un dernier tour de piste. Malt plus effacé, on laisse les levures se démarquer sans pour autant créer une acidité agressante. Aucun goût de pain mouillé et/ou médicamenteux q’on retrouve dans les gueuzes plus bas de gamme. Superbe bière.

Gold/orange color. Medium to high carbonation. Fruit aroma, hints of citrus, barn, and horse. Bone dry sharp sourness. Intense grapefruit flavors, tropical fruits, and slight tannins. A bit one dimensionalyl sour. Not bad, but I’ve had more complex gueuze.

eManu (516) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2015
Thanks to Jos for this bottle, 37.5cl with champagne cork. Pours an amber hazy body with a thin but stable off white head. Aroma are wonderful, of tart apple, yeast. Flavors of tart apple, yeast, vanilla, grass, herbs, straw, citrus, and cereals. Wonderful balance of flavors, nice light fizziness, sourness not over strong but still very present giving this Geuze a perfect balance of taste and refreshing body. Very nice, very pleasant. Great product, highly recommended.

Cloudy orange pour no head light prickly on toungue. Pretty tart and well balanced with the oak and barnyard funk. Finishes lemon like and tad of salinity.
