UPDATED: SEP 15, 2010 Bottle dated 09 04 2004. Cloudy strw colored with medium white head that fades quickly. Aroma of citrus and dust. Full bodied. Taste of sour grapefruit and must. Beautiful. Vintage 2007, courtesy of Armand and his wife - thank you! Shared with Bastien, Arne & Cameron on the day we crated the Schaerbeekse. Highly complex, lots of character, very tasty.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Bottled, 2003 version. Cloudy orange coloured. Very nice complex nose, fruity, dusty, pleasantly tart. Flavour is quite easy going for a oude geuze, sour but not extreme. Very nice geuze.

#2 Birthday beer.
Pours clear golden with a medium, frothy, white head. Fine duration lots of bubbles - impressive for a gueuze. Aroma is very nice, some cellar, lots of green apples, funkiness, lactic and citric acids. Still maintains a softness and elegance with just a tad of vanilla and oak. Highish carbonation, super dry mouthfeel. Just a tad on the watery side. Flavour is tart, but not overwhelmingly so, apples, citric and lightly lactic. Very soft and nice, but not near the best gueuzes IMHO.

BeerandBlues2 (12841) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Vintage 2003. Pours hazy dark yellow with a small, fizzy, white head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, hay, straw, meal), light hops (flowers, grass), average yeast (horse blanket, earth) with notes of grapes and cask. Light bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a sour finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and sourness.

2003 vintage shared by Jason. Well my notes on this one aren’t very good as they went through the washing machine, but those numbers were correct because that survived. I recall it was straw colored and very hazy with a nice white head. The aroma and flavors were extremely well balanced but not overly sour. This beer would be a great one to introduce people to Gueuzes because it’s so perfectly balanced. Nice leathery sour fruits but not overly so.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2008
2003 Vintage. Poured effervescent healthy golden with a medium cap of fizzy white head and lots of rising carbonation. The aroma was large and in charge with apple cider vinegar, leather, and dusty funk throughout.. warmth brought out a pinch of lemon zest and some floral character.. awesome! Prickly vinegar and lemons on the tip of the tongue with citrus meat and dry oaky notes following.. vinegar and Bretty funkage were laced throughout, and this maintained tremendous balance the whole way.. finished long and sour with apple skins and funk. Again, perfect balance on the palate.. soft enough that you can drink this all day and not tear up your stomach.. great, great stuff!

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Found a bottle at a shop in belgium on a recent trip. An off brownish orange color with a small soapy white head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Aroma has some tart citrus qualities I know this will be sour, a good amount of dry oak. Palate is puckering and coated. Flavor is very tart lots of sour fruits I thought a hint of berry and some apple skins over a dry wood taste that pulls the moisture off my tounge. A nice beer.

mabel (8735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2008
[1250-20080404] 375mL bottle. Sour flattened cardboard malt aroma tucked in a bed of old pine needles. Hazy, light brown orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Mostly sour flavour with mild grains, mild malt and mild citrus. Medium body is super bitter. A puckerer! Yum.
