4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This has been and always be my favorite geuze. As I sip the bottle from my hotel room in Brussels, I am reminded how important this beer is to the history of Brussels. The aroma is powerful with hints of lactic and Brett that remind me of all the complexities of this beer. The beer bone dry with a good biting acidity that comes alive with all of the carbonation in the mouth. The brewer closed down in 2003, but opened up and are starting a revival of sorts. They are making a wonderful triple to help get the lambic side of things going again. The color is of straw with lots of effervensce and a slight whippy white head. The taste is amazing with so many layers and depth. There is citrus, hay, wet horse, wool and a soft malt character that is there for those who choose to dig deep into this beer. The finish is dry and grainy/bready with a zesty sour note. It is a must try even if only to keep this tiny brewery alive !!!!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Vintage 2011. Pours a slightly hazy golden straw colour with a big, off-white head. Fruity and sour aroma with horse blanket, rowanberries, citrus, sweet fruits, vinegar and forest floor. More citrus in the flavour with a slightly sweet and dry aftertaste. Has a slick and sour mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Is very carbonated. A decent gueuze, but I had expected more complexity in the taste.

Bottiglia 37,5 cl @ birroteca sopra la media.
Chiara con schiuma media persistente.
Al naso profumo di mughetto.
In bocca è acida ma non troppo, delicata e ritornano un po' di fiori secchi.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 375ml. Hazy blond body with lively carbonation and a thick, diminishing, white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with green apple and herbal hints. Its fresh hoppy taste carries malty, herbal, and citrusy notes. Ends with a sharp sour finish. Good example of Gueuze.

Tasted this alongside 3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze, This one was good, but not nearly as complex and assertive as 3 Fonteinen. Flavors and aromas of lemon, vanilla, sweaty and barnyard funk.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale yellow with biggish head. Lemon, apple, yeast. Fizzy carbonation. Very sour, as expected. Very typical gueuze, bit like a hybrid of apple cider and white wine.
