Tap at Aromas. Poured a hazy blond with a smallish white head. Nose was mix of sour and hoppy, with some citrus. Pretty interesting. Taste was hoppy, sour, and bitter. Kind of a strange brew. Body was medium bodied and plenty sour. Overall, an okay brew. Not really as good as I was hoping. Beaver (1854) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2010
12.7oz bottle, probably bought about 2 years ago. Pours a clear dark golden with a huge fizzy pillowy white head that retains well and leaves very little lacing. gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2010
The aroma is sweet fruits and acidic tartness with some stinky musty yeast.
The flavor is subdued - sweet fruits with a dry metallic note and some tart slight sourness. As it warms, the fruity tart sourness dominates. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with some sharp carbonation.
Overall, I liked this. It’s a bit thin and subdued in the flavor but I like what’s there.
On draft at Stone Sour Fest 2010. Pours an opaque honey with no head. Smells like a strawberry fruit rollup. Somehow manages to taste both tart and bitter. cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Big thanks to all involved in another great tasting! Jeremy, Frank and Kevin! 2001 Bottle with 9 years on it. Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2010
A-pours a clear light orange color with a thin white head.
S-the nose smells of scotch, lots of malty sweetness, residual sugars, caramel, carmelized prunes, and notes of booze.
T-single malt scotch up front, tons of burnt malty sugars, burnt caramel, carmelized plums, a bit of heat and booze, a little watery and papery in the back. probably past its prime.
M-rough on the edges, medium syrupy body with low carbonation and a harsh dry finish.
D-this is pretty poor, tons of burnt sugars and seems to have oxidized. lots of scotch and sherry notes, much like a harsh liquor.
750 ml brown bottle. Vintage 2004. Consumed July 2010. A golden-orange beer with a nice head billowing over the top of my tulip glass. Cork came out with a loud pop. The aroma is very sour, very tart, lots of green apples, lemons, and is a great aroma. The taste is not near as complex as the aroma and is struggling to be either sour or tart, but is mainly citrus and a little green apple flavor. Has a fizzy mouthfeel on the tongue and has a slight grassiness that I would guess comes from the wild yeast. I have to say the taste in this was a big letdown but the aroma was great.

375ml green bottle with a cork, vintage 2005. Orange with a beige head, a lots of carbonation. Some brett on the nose with classic barnyard and horse blanket. The taste is acid, tart, long, classic gueuze, very fresh. 8/10 Sten (760) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2017 First rating, 14th of august 2010. 8/4/7/3/15 Very dangerous brew! Walked to the kitchen with the metal cap off and suddenly the cork popped out (quite powerful) and nearly took my eye out. Beige-amber coloured beer with a small white head. Balanced and soft aroma. Sour flavour and a dry finish. Good gueuze, just love the style. (Corked bottle 37,5 cl, vintage 2005) Re-rate: discription is the same. Except for the near death expirience.

Decent Gueze which less funky than a cantillon, but has a more refined touch, losing a bit of that really funky farmhouse vibe that you would expect with a beer like this. Lovely amber pour. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2010
2004 bottle from T Brugs Beertje in Bruges. Pours clear light amber with a light beige, frothy head. Aroma holds awesome lemon, hay, horseblanket, and some tart citrus- crisp, beautiful nose. Flavor is extraordinary, lemon drops, barnyard, and musty grass give the initial tart kick, then the wild yeast gives way to a beautifully palatable citric grapefruit stage with a dry finish. Crisp, clean, but not too light. Great geuze. JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Golden orange pour, white head. Citrus, leather, cheese, musty, tart, and apple. Some grass. Light and fizzy. Nice gueuze, but not the best.
