4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2007 Bottle from Uto. Golden with a thick foamy white head that is showing no signs of fading. Unusual for a geueze. Sweet, yeasty lemon lime nose with a light air of caramel and green apple. The effervescent head seems to rocket the aroma up your nostrils. Wow! Taste to match with a sharper tart edge and a hint of vinegar. Very dry, content finish. The fizzy texture tickles the tongue, making up for a slightly thin body. The head remains till the very end, leaving a nice lace. Jolly good stuff!
Re-rate - Newly branded bottle from Dranken Geers en route to the Kerstbier Fest. I had intended to drink this then and there as hair of the dog but, as it got mixed with all the others and we were on the way to DHVL, I ended up bringing it home instead. Amber with a lasting white head. Nose of vinegar and citrus fruits, grapefruit, lemon, lime, straw and caramel. Yeasty grapefruit flavour with some cheesy barnyard funk and candi sugar in the end. Quite tart at first but mellows out mid swallow. My first lambic in about a week which, as Mr. Harrison would say my friends, is an outrage! 8,4,8,4,17. Seems they’ve done well keeping up the tradition, good job fellas!

Bottle at home. Carbonated. Orangy color. Really sour nose. Sour flavour, as well. Citrusy, Orange, finish. Best by April, 2026. Classic. Think I drank this one too early... Tart flavour and finish, definitely.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nieuw, na de ’herrijzenis’. 37.5 cl fles, gebotteld in september 2006. De kurk vliegt eraf en belandt een paar meter verderop. Het lichttroebele donkergouden bier is bedekt met een onstuimig, sissend schuim dat vrij snel zakt tot enkele millimeters. Droge aroma’s van melkzuur, azijnzuur, leer en een beetje hout en metaal vullen de neus. De smaak is ook droog maar zachter, fruitig met een stevige citrustoets. De zurigheid maakt in de nasmaak plaats voor een lichte bitterheid die aan pompelmoes herinnert. Prikkelend mondgevoel. Jong.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle best by 2025. Poured a golden body with good size head and lots of carbonation. Aroma is of sour apples, tart apples, yeast. Taste is sour and a little too pungent at first. As it warmed it showed it’s complexeties and was enjoyable with a tart, sour apple flavor. Good but in need of alot of cellaring. I’ll have to update...

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2007 bottle: a hazy hay colour pour. aroma of tart fruit and some sourness flavour of tart fruit with a nice sour finish, not to overpowering.
re rate bottle best by 2025.
(no score change)
pours a lively clean apple juice colour with a very large white head with good lacing. aroma has great amounts of funk, some tart crabapple , a background of sweeter malts and hints of fresh cherry, and just light waffs of fresh flower petals. flavour is also tart with plenty of funkyness, with some drying and tart crabapple taste. finish is actually pretty smooth with a nice light malt character and some floral notes.
this is such an excellent beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild, tart nose, big head that quickly dissipates. Starts acrid sweet, a bit winy, then comes the big tart hit. Not nearly as funky as some of the other Geuze, and overall pretty bland with the exception of the solid tartness.

Delicious golden gueuze. Very tart and fruity flavor whose aroma is just as nice as the flavor. Light and bubbly mouthfeel. Wonderful dessert beer, almost like a sparkling wine. Enjoyed this with my beer snob boyfriend. mmm..mmm.mmmm.

I love a good geuze and this one did not let me down. This is a little on the sweet side for the style, but the barnyard funk is there and strong. The taste is light and a little fruity. I will look for more offerings from this brewery and I recommend that everyone give this one a try.
