4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Lush on Halsted in Chicago. Pours golden with a white head. Funky aroma, but not as bold as others. Light bodied with a spritzy texture. Flavor of pale wheat malts, sour apples, and pear countered by a firm tartness. Semi dry finish. I know others think this is young, but I think it’s good now as I don’t like my gueze to be overly dry. Pretty solid, but I fell a hair short of my expectations based the recent surge in popularity of this beer.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom L place. Thanks zvsn. 2013-2014. Hazy golden with off-white head. The aroma has lots of yogurt, very fruity (mostly apricot) with lots of wood. Very sour flavor with notes of yogurt, vinegar, lots of wood, very dry. Lively carbonation, medium-bodied. Amazing stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Blend of 2014-2015 , fantastic spicy yeast aroma , with some straw like funk. Light carbonation gives a lemon fizz on the tongue, with a gentle, but long lasting bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blend of 11/12. Bought it back in 2012. Not a big fan of geuze but this was great. Aroma of apple, herbs, barnyard, lemon. Sweet upfront, really dry and of course tart in the aftertaste. Complex. Just enough carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma pleasant and typical of the style, albeit a bit soft to the nose. Appearance very hazy with thin, quickly disappearing white head. Remaining yeast sticking to the cork as if the bottle was kept horizontal, tilted down even. Taste only mildly sour, bitter aftertaste dominates, less complex than most gueuzes. More carbonated than most gueuzes too. Not the sour, mildly carbonated sensation I assosiate with the style (of which I am a big fan) After the carbonation has disappeared however, the taste improves: softer and more sour, aftertaste less bitter. Still not complex though. Maybe best to be drunk rather at room temperature than at cellar temperature ( winter).

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
3 oz pour at Hops & Pie. Sour and dry with rustic yeast, oak and light earth in the aroma. Similar flavor, adding a tart, light puckering feel with a crisp finish. Solid gueuze, I think I prefer there draft version though.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled, no idea where i got it from. Cloudy dark golden colored, lasting white head. Beautiful lambic nose, horseblanket, farm, tartness, yeast. Dry flavor, moderately acidic (for a gueuze), yeasty notes, funky, but still pretty clean. Not the most complex gueuze, but very well balanced.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2016 375ml 2012 bottle from the trade. Aroma: nice dusty fruity nose. Lemon is prominent here with some apples in the background. App: cloudy copper, medium white head with good retention and great lacing. Taste and palate: light body, moderate carbo, soft on the palate, light sweetness, medium lingering acidity finish. Overall: damn good! To me the palate is the perfection. Not too sweet, not too acidified and so refreshing. Can’t wait to taste the Prune de Namur that is waiting for me in my beer cellar.
