COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Goudkleur, normale witte schuimkraag. Ruikt heerlijk, zuur en fris. Smaakt bijzonder lekker, zurig en verfrissend. Erg lekker.

aleigator (183) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2014
Pours an orange-golden color, with a decent froth, white head, which stays for an unusual long time, for this being still a gueuze. Funky barnyard aromas, along with leather and lovely, floral hints define the nose. Dough, slick yeast gets coated up by a gentle, mild lactic acidity and oak, which leads to a very smooth mouthfeel. Hints of lemon peel and unripe apple reveal themselves as the beer warms up, leading to a moderate dry aftertaste. My girlfriend said, this finally tastes like an actual beer, due to the relatively mild tartness of this Gueuze. This beer is very enjoyable, as it is outstanding well balanced. It opens up a different angle on Gueuzes, as being gentle on the palate, without the usual aggressive tartness, still it contains an enjoyable complexity.

Heerlijk zuur fris bier met een zeer uitgesproken karakter. Toch mag hij van mij nog wel wat zuurder zijn.

TrefwoordPunk (797) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle 37,5 cl. pours a clear copper/yellow, with a medium to big white head and an aroma of sourness, apple, citrus and barnyard. The taste is medium sour (at least, for a gueuze), a tiny bit of sweetness, tart and a nice dry finish. A really good gueuze, but not the best I know.

VDuquerroux (228) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle, 37.5cL. @Nuetnigenough restaurant, Brussels. Beersel glass ! A sparkling yellow brown beer with a large white foam. Good persistence. Woody aroma with smoke, very acid, light fruity (apple ? grape ?). Waves of heavy dry sourness, light bitter. Taste like a dry "Champagne". Medium body and texture, fizzy, lasting dry sour finish. Overall, a very mineral gueuze : dry and attractive as hell, light fruity note. Next time, I will taste this one alone with no meal.
