12 oz bottle from mcbackus. Nice onion peal yellow that is clear and heavy looking. Minimal chunks at first but boy are there a lot in the bottom of the bottle. The aroma is slightly salty and heavy. Tart citrus peal and a funky mustiness are also present. The flavor is most certainly sour with under-ripe lemons and cherries. Notes of straw as well. Tart crisp finish that is also lightly bitter. I’m not a huge fan of this style but this was ok to taste. I’d never be able to get through a whole bottle though.

From 75 cL at Waregemse Bierhappening. Surprisingly faint aroma of dusty lemons. Lemony flavor is controlled, sour and citic-acidic, not aggressive. Lively mouthfeel and awesomely dry. Leaves the tongue parched and hankering for more. It does lack some complexity though.

Dry, sour, not as much as expected however. I just had Girardin Black recently and this is not as abrasively, in your face sour. Still, a bit more than I like. Good in small doses, and don’t let it warm up.

Dull orange with thick white head. Aroma is funky, fruity, sour, spicy, and grassy. Holy crap, is this thin and sour! Vinegar soda, I tell you! Avoid at all costs, particularly at the $5/12.z oz I paid.

Bottle. Hazy orange-yellow in color. No head but sudsy. Earthy musty, with paint thinner scent. Fruity, tart taste. Very sour in a harsh lingering way. Quite dry and quick finish . . . champagne like.

Hazy orange with off white head. Sour vinous vinegar & earthy aroma and taste. Little fruity note - apples. High acidicity/carbonation. Sour rather fresh taste. Dry bitter end. Very nice gueze!

My first of this type. Pours a hazy orange with no head. Aroma of citrus. Taste was sour with some fruitiness with heavy carbonation. This is the dryest beer I’ve had. You swallow it then feel like you’ve been sucking on a vacuum. No moisture left in your mouth. Interesting.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2014 Bottle, 6%. Good sour aroma with a hint of mold. Hazy copper colour. Big stable white head. Good sourness in the flavour, lemony and sharp. Quite clean flavour with a hint of fruity sweetness. Ends on a very dry note, reminding me of aspartam. Slightly high carbonation. 8 3 7 3 16
Bottle, 6%. Sweet aroma, mild earth, a little paper. Cloudy copper colour. Small white head. The flavour is citric and earthy. Has a little acidic bite in the finish, but apart from that harmless, even a bit watery. Quaffable enough, but not terribly flavourful. 6 3 6 3 15

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Hazy orange and bubbly. Stable beige head. Classic gueuze aroma, cheese, feet, barnyard, almost manure in this one, all in a good way of course. Sour, very refreshing. A little lighter than some other gueuzes, and I think a little bit on the fizzy side. All in all, another classic, very good. Only slight dropoff from Girardin Black Label (and probably better for the price).
