Complex aroma of fruit, earth, and cheese like notes. Complex flavor dominated by the sour base with features of aged cheese, broken earth, mustiness and fruit. Finishes sour but rather crisp with a pleasant mustiness (?) somehow. Carlus12 (361) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2007
GBBF ’07. Pours pale yellow/ golden colour with huge off-white head. Aroma is sour fruits / earthy. Taste is sour / refreshing with a peppery bitterish dry finish. A very funky beer, but enjoyable and refreshing is small doses. downender (8584) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2007
750ml bottle. Cloudy pale gold colour with a large off-white head. Powerful aroma of sour green fruit, lemons and the farmyard. The flavour was acidic, with plenty of tart fruit and a mouth puckering finish. Excellent.

Bottle (labeled "Classic Gueuze"). Pours a golden yellow with white head. The aroma is very acidic and sour, and it hits me before I try to smell it at all; some zest and bleu cheese are in there, too. At first sip it is bracingly sour. Sharp lemon, bleu cheese, and lactic acid explode on my tongue. It softens after a few sips, and honey and lightly floral notes emerge. Pleasantly dry finish leaves a lingering, fruity sourness. Yum. slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2007
