4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12.7 oz. corked n’ caged bottle, best before 05/03/2021- Pours slightly hazy golden with lively carbonation and a one finger head. The aroma is funky barnyard all the way, and very sour and acidic, a mild skunk that goes away pretty fast thankfully, stupid green bottle. The taste is mouth puckering sour, vinegary, funky up the ass, this is what I want in a Gueuze, very tasty. Body is medium and carbonation is high. Good shit, I love a good Belgian funky lambic, and this is a great one!

Imported two-year-old bottle. Very cloudy, beige brown color. Aromas of young fruits, especially peach, hay, dust. Very acid taste. Aftertaste of grapefruit, cherry and raspberry. Very dry. The astringent effect leaves a pleasent sweet finish.

Le liquide est blond-banane voilé,sans col avec un semblant anneau.Son effervescence est bien soutenu.Au nez , poussiéreux,surit ,levures sauvages.En bouche,c’est très réussit,les levures sauvages donne un goût surette-acide et une finale asséchante. Une bière qu’il me plairait bien de reboire à nouveau!

Bottle. Pours golden orange with a fluffy white head leaving a little lacing. Aroma is strawberry yogurt, white wine and vinegar. Taste is unbelievably sour to start but your palate adjusts after a few sips. Vinous and tart. Finish is lightly Brett with a lingering sweetness on the finish. Palate is medium bodied with heavy carbonation. Not too dry. Very happy with my first gueze experience.

Bottled thanks to Alice and Jan. Hazy golden pour, medium frothy white head. Nice soft geuze aroma, wheat, hay, barnyard, horseblanket, soft tartness. But all quite soft and not really harsh like some other geuzes. Soft sourness in taste. Easy to drink and well balanced geuze.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2010-2011 vintage. white head that evaporates quickly. hazy golden color. Smells like a honeyed apple cider Beck’s. Very acidic. Tastes like fermented granny smith apples. Nots sweet at all. Nice yeasty and mineral flavors in the mix. Dry finish. I’ve had all these same flavors out of mediocre kombucha. To be fair, this is my first time trying this style.
