Pours a cloudy golden color with a thin white head. The aroma is fruity, tart, funky and acidic. Good flavor of fruits, tartness, acid and funk. The body is light and the carbonation is lively. This is very good, but doesnt compare favorably to Cantillon and Hanssens geuze.

Bottle, 37,5 cl. Blond-golden light hazy beer with medium white head at he start. Aroma is great: the sourness of the lambic combined with a hoppy bitterness and a fruity citrus smell surrounding it all. Taste is sour, but - surprisingly - also bitterness on the foreground. The taste is surrounded here also with the citrus texture. This is a very good one in the gueuze-style!

Nickls (2498) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap, SD, as Cask #52) Light hazy straw yellow color; with a very thin white head. Tarty berry aroma; sour; light hint of fruitiness again below the sour; very nice. Very fruity; berries (more like raspberry); bit soapy; then barnyard funkiness toward the end. Thinner to medium MF; light soft carbonation. Really nice drinking; not the most sour or even funky, but very tasty and nice

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2010 375 ml bottle couldnt figure out how old it was probably (5-10 years). Hazy golden with almost no head. Flavour is malt, fruit, sour, tart and very long.

2003 Vintage Bottle purchased at the Cracked Kettle in Amsterdam. Appearance: Tarnished yellow body with a nice 3 finger white crown. The crown has decent retention and offer nice lacing. Smell: Wow this is one tart gueuze! I love what 6 years can do for a bottle of this style. Loads of sulfer, lemon, some brett, and a touch of funk. Ive smelled more "urine like" gueuzes but whose to say that smelling less "urine like" is a bad thing! Taste: Tart wheat upfront with a slightly musty barnyard middle that leaves off with a dry finish. Not as complex as I was hoping for but all sorts of lovely! Mouthfeel: Very good mouthfeel with the right amount of carbonation. Drinkability: This goes down fast for a gueuze and Id like another please! Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-22-2009
