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 !!!!!

mariuspoenari (1291) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2016
37cl bottle. Clear pale orange pour with a tall white head and visible strands of carbonation. Smells like baking soda, lemon zest, barnyard funk, rotten leaves and mould. The taste follows the same notes, with some added grapes, white wine and gooseberries. Dry, moderately sour and lightly bitter, with a medium body, high carbonation and a sour refreshing aftertaste.

375ml bottle. Pours hazy orange golden with a beautiful creamy white head. Aroma is lactic acidity, yeast, light lemony aroma, funky notes, light mineral hint. Taste is similar, excellent balancement of the sour component, rich funkyness, very easy to drink. Medium body, lively carbonation. Excellent.

gaudinosmotors (11) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 9, 2016
I loved the colour of this. I knew Id like it as soon as I poured and smelled. Overwhelming citrus on the nose and certainly on the taste buds. Its very sour and given I love sour drinks its right on the money for me. Ill be buying a lot more of this.

ThreeCats (801) - ISRAEL - JUN 7, 2016
Very clear golden color with a big spritzy, but quickly dissipating head. Aroma of white wine, with a strong bret presence. Taste sour but not overpowering. Complex yeast flavours. Im a big fan of oud bruin, so this was a little one dimensional to me. Very good though.
