3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Corked bottle opens without help when the cage is removed with a loud bang. Blonde, pours a huge head. Too much young lambic maybe? Citrus, leather and onions in the aroma. Sour flavor with lots of citrus. Very pleasant and easy to drink oude geuze.

Bottle:Clear yellow sparkling colour, nice head. Aroma is sour and sweet(?) maltynes,citrus and flowery nose. Flavor is sour and a bit round smouth mouth feeling, if i can say so , for a sour beer. Nice enyway.Thin to medium body, and a nice medium sour/fruity finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle. Pours transparent yellow golden topped with a thin off white head that fades to a ring of bubbles. Very appealing aroma; with horseblanket, citrus, and lactic acid in forefront, and grass and barnyard in the background. Citrus and grass hit the palate first, with lactic acid, white grape, wood, and mild herbal character adding complexity. Medium carbonation, and somewhat viscous mouthfeel. Pretty decent

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer was a pleasant surprise from a brewery with a mixed reputation. Very sour and very fruity. These guys CAN surely make a great gueuze.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle shared by puzzl, thanks Andy. As the beer pours one can already see this is a different kind of gueze. It is way too light in color, more yellow and very bright. Thick enough that one cannot see through it. Aroma is a wimpy citric grapefruit. There is also a lot of cereal coming out. Flavor is very tart, just tart, not sour. Its not lemony either, its just a tart drink, nothing else much representative of the style. This would be a great Berliner Weisse but falls short of a good gueze.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from De Bier Tempel, Brussels. Hazy golden, small white head. Lemony and woody aroma. Sharp, but not aggressive lemons flavours with dry wood towards the end. Very fizzy. Quite nice, but lacks the complexity of other geuzes. It may be a good introduction to the style for newbies.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at puzzl’s New Year’s Eve 2009: Cloudy yellow with an off white film of head. Bright and tart aroma- quite lactic and citric. The body is crisp and acidic as well. Some mild wheaty grains in the flavor- it’s way too clean for a Guezue. If this stuff were a Berliner Weisse it’d have over a 4, or even a sour ale, because it’s fantastic as those styles go. But if you were to compare this to the authnetic Guezues of Belgium it’s completely lacking the complexity and funk the style demands. Frustrating.
