Tasted after the very interesting self guided tour of the brewery. Fantastic. The skank is very hard to liken to other flavours - some sort of juice left in the cheese wrapper.

Oddly, for a style that’s aged, I feel like most bottled gueuzes I’ve had in bottles in the US feel, well old. This one didn’t. It was fresh and champagne-like, but earthy and better than pretty much any champagne I’ve ever had. I feel like people who don’t like gueuze expect it to be beer-like. Approach this one with an open mind, and I think you’ll like it. Appearance is dark yellow with a few big bubbles which hung on the glass. Aroma was slightly sweet and champagne-y with earthy tones. Flavor is sweet and slightly thick, with some bitterness lingering on the tip of the tongue which sticks around for awhile. I would highly recommend this beer. I had this glass from a bottle at the Cantillon brewery in Brussels (or more properly Anderlecht).

375 mL bottle, as Cantillon Classic Gueuze. Pours hazy golden orange with a small and quickly diminishing off-white head. Sour and tangy aromas with some tart fruitiness and a bit of funkiness that I suppose is probably the barnyard aromas that are often spoken of. Flavor is mostly a simple sourness that isn’t too strong. Lemon and apple flavors associated with the sourness come across to some extent. Pretty much a simple but tasty beer for my first gueuze.

Joakgust (1380) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2008
Bottle, 75cl - Hazy golden amber colored beer with a frothy head. Aroma is vinous and acidic, with notes of sour apples. Flavor is sourish with hints of apples. Pretty nice gueuze!

AtlAggie (241) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Beautiful color, golden reminiscent of apple juice. Wonderful blend of sour and tart flavors, with an underlying spiciness that cuts into the sour. Does a good job of hiding the alcohol present. Deliciously different, and very drinkable once you get a taste for the flavor.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Very smooth gueuze. Aroma and nose are all funky horseblanket with a copperish smell in the background. Pours golden with white head. Very dry and sour. I could drink a lot of this if it weren’t $14 a pop.

Thanks to Sprinkle for this gem. Nice orange color with nice white head. Taste was of course very tart with some dried fruits. This beer was very easy to drink

Pours foggy bright orange with a thin off white head. The nose is horse blanket and other funk, along with tart citrus, as is the flavor. Subtle oak finish.

Hazy orange color and white head. Citric aroma is bitter and fruity. Sour, fruity, wild, earthy taste. Refreshing. Softly carbonated medium mouthfeel.
