3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly more lamic character than the most timid lambics. Some light horse blanket flavours. A quafable gueuze none the less.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2003 This gueuze is my first gueuze. I love this stuff. Sour and a bit vinegary nose. Very nice, fruity and refreshing taste and aroma, yet filling. Great brew, I will buy this beer again.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark blond or light amber coloured beer with a medium off-white head. The aroma is slightly fruity with a relatively mild bitterness. The taste is strikingly sweet for a geuze. I do not like this. I prefer more sourness in a geuze. The sweetness makes it bland, not really my cup of tea.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sharp aromna of oak lemon and cherry. Sweet and a bit sour flavor. Not too bad, but a bit artificial.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is
hazy medium amber, moderate density of small and medium sized particles.
Aroma is moderately yeasty (cobwebs), lightly hoppy
(flowers), lightly malty (toasted light bread), with notes of straw and
honey. Flavor is moderately
sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet,
moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. A
little too sweet, and the aroma isn’t especially gueuze-like. The
assertive bitterness in the flavor profile is a bit odd for the style
but it’s not something I dislike.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange colour with thin white head.
Sourish aroma, with hints of wet cardboard and malt. Spicy and fruity.
Quite small didn´t open up after 15 minutes in the glass.
Spicy and fruity flavor with little acidity.
Hay and a little tartness.
It opens up after 15 minutes in the glass and gets smoother and a bit bitter.
Almost as Campari.
A hint of grapefruit rind gets trough.
Cantillon is to sour and this is to sweet.
Lambics are a hard bargain.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear orange color. I prefer a bit cloudy beers. Crispy, sour. Weak gueuze i guess.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not particularly ’gueze-ish’, but very refreshing. Sharp and crisp, plenty of candy. Quite sugary, which cuts the sourness. Still remains quite sour, a pleasant little tartness. Has a bit of earthiness to it, kind of like drinking from a natural spring. Palate is light, not a lot to it. Not an archetypical gueuze at all, but still like this one.
