3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Corked bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels, bb 2028
Darker shade of blond, hazy, with giant rocky head. The aroma is initially mild; but under the foam it reveals apungent acetic smell, followed by some cellar smell too, and bit of lemon. The mouthfeel is very dry, without concession to any smoothness, and the carbonation is very high; very acidic, with strong lemon presence, but clearly missing the funky character of the best Lambics, the animal, the cellar, the cobwebs and the rest.
Pleasant sour drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold body with a large fizzy white head. The nose is pretty hard, kinda minerally with a little bit of cellar funkiness and a little bit of cork. Not much on the acetic side. The flavor is dry and crisp, some green apple, light to moderate oak, a little acetic, but not crazy. Not especially complex, some light sugars on the finish. Light to medium bodied, very fizzy and lively, not quite all the way dried out. So so overall, decent enough, but not in the top tier for the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good gueuze but definitely not a great gueuze. 75cl bottle, BF 2030, so pretty young.
Very citrusy, and not a sharp as I like my gueuze. I’d recommend as an introduction to the genre as it’s pretty cheap compared to the other brands.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours the color of hazy light home-bottled honey. Unique aroma of honey, some melon, raspberry, with an old mellow sourness. Awesome blend of sweet citrus (lemon), honey, and sourness. A really nice gueuze.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Blind tasting off 18 current available Gueuzes. Shared with Mathieu87.
Appearance: stable nice head, clear blonde beer
Nose: fruity, horse blanket, barnyard, grains, sourness, sugars are directly noticeable.
Taste: lot’s of fruit, nice complex fruity sourness. Sourness seems to come from lacto. It starts off really sour but aftertaste is rather fruity and sweet. Complex beer.
Amazing beer, though doesn’t really taste like a traditional geuze, it’s a very good one!
Drank again at ’The Great Belgian Beer Dinner’. (Edited)

dark orange, medium head
Red wine grapes, kiwi and pineapple. Some lemon
wow. Very tart, very dry, very acetic. Just uber sour bomb but the finish has no residual sugar and overall, a biting experience. this one would age very well
