4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma of this ale is amazing, and that aroma just complements the great color. Very tart to start, but I do like the invigorating first impression it gives to the taste. Inhaling the aroma with the sip makes it a great combination to the senses. Almost to sweet to finish, but a very fine offering.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mix of subtle sweet, sour, dry flavors. Refreshing delicious beer that would be great in kegs or cans. They call Gueuze the champagne of beer. This is better than any champagne.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy orange pour with a white head. Little lacing. Aroma is tart, citrus, barnyard funkiness. Flavor is tart, biting, barnyard, grassy, leathery. Really complex. This beer just keeps unfolding in surprising and wonderful ways. Tartness and carbonation and funk. Really excellent beer.

Poured from a bottle into a stemmed wine glass. Biting and tart flavor followed by a champagne like mouthfeel cleansing the palate. Some fruit flavors life sour apples and a mild barnyard aroma from the brettanomyces. Overall an wonderful Gueuze.

2012.09.15 - bottle 37.5cl - opening the bottle THERE is where it starts. it=the pleasure (as the beer climbs the bottle, but doesn’t gush out of it) - green apple, sourness (taste and flavour). As good as Botticelli.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
370ml bottle @ Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours hazy pale golden yellow with a white head. Sour, pungent aroma with acidic fruits and fermented hay. The flavour is quite sour as well, with the taste specific to Brettanomyces. A hint of grassy hops in the otherwise sour finish.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Burst into life when opened leaving 1/2 of bottle on counter. Strong aroma of grapefruit. Taste of grapefruit pulp and lemons. With woody tones from acidification oak barrels. Not a beginners beer. Sophisticated and challenging like a conversation with Andy Warhal and a price like one of his prints.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Peachy cloudy body with a thin bubble ring floating around the out sided edge of the glass. Big, big funky aroma with lemon candy, vinegar, white wine....so complex in a simple way. Big lemon sour funk, bret, vinegar, more stuff. Big tart finish that turns sweet and lingers. So very dry its just sucking the syliva out of my mouth leaving only SAND! The more I drink the more I think this is a a dry white wine. By far the easiest drinking gueuze and there for my favorite Gueuze I ever had.

August 19, 2012 - at The Craft Beer Co. Courtesy of ... harrisoni? magicdave6? And I THINK this was the bottled version - frankly my notes are pretty sketchy on this one: just the numbers and "sour, funky, lemon drops, wool, throat-clearing acidity, dry acidic finish, lively .... just what you want in a drinkin’ gueuze!!" Dere ya go.
