Orange with a small white head. leather, barnyard, wood aroma. Flavour is like a slightly simpler Cantillon, not exceptional, but absolutely not bad either

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a deep orange color with brownish hues. Thin large-bubbled head dissipates quickly. Lactic tartness present with a sweet grainy aroma. Not a ton of funk, but a decent aroma. Nice palate, not too thin or overcarbonated. Taste is dry throughout, with a tart bready start that gives way to a sharp dry sour finish. A nice finish, but I’d like a larger funk component to it. Interesting to move around the gueuze category a bit after having a few of the ones with high standing.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 Bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Great aroma of green apples and citrus. Pale hazy with a beige head. Taste mellow apple juice, not too dry. Very fancy finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden yellow, a bit murky, with a very large, huge bubble stark white head that lasts. Aroma is grape skins, a bit tannic, lemon as well as a slight pale malt character. Quite tart on the palate. Overarching fruitiness: white grape and lemon, citric sourness, grape skins, a bit of apple. Lacks a bit of depth, missing that zesty spice and yeasty funk components. Effervescent but not quite high levels of carbonation. Crisp, quite dry, nice but doesn’t quite make it to Cantillon or 3F heights.

12 ounce bottle in a pint glass. Pours bright orange with slight chill haze and lasting white head. Tart aroma of orange fruitiness, barnyard and baseball glove. Complex flavors of fresh orange fruitiness, horseblanket, and tart dry finish. Medium-light body, medium-high carbonation. Maybe a little too cold, but absolutely delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated 8/3/07. Bottle at Redlight Redlight. Courtesy boboski. Cloudy, yellow-gold body with the thinnest, faintest film of white micro-bubbles on the surface. Leaves behind a snake-like lacing. The aroma is a very dank, dusty, yeasty, farmhouse-like smell that is actually oddly appealing. The flavor has quite a bit of sour lemon, grapefruit, and sour apple. Its very reminiscent of a crisp Sauvignon Blanc. There is clearly alot of ascorbic acid in there, which undoubtedly accounts for the sourness. On the light side of medium bodied, with a clean, lip-smacking finish. Very nice for my first experience with geuze.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Corked bottle from Flaco Alto. Thanks! Pours clean, lively cheddar orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma is cozy barnyard with nutmeg and coriander in there as well. Slight bit of apple in the fragrance. Flavor is sour lemon and lime, with a touch of sour orange and apple. Very mouth puckering finish. Nice, clean mouthfeel. Great gueuze.
