UPDATED: JUL 12, 2009 Bottled in 2004. Call me a heretic, but this wasnt at the top of my list of favorite Gueuzes. Sure it was hard core, but I like my gueuzes a little softer than this, as this was almost straight up lambic feeling to me (except for the carbonation). The aroma was lots of citrus and light funk. Flavor was mostly citrus lemons, slight brett, not a ton of funk, and no cheese. Mouthfeel was carbonated with a medium to light body. Refreshing while cutting the grass (although, geez, this is an expensive way to cut the grass), but not my favorite gueuze. Re-rate, July 09: On draft at Monks Caf (w/ their label on it) just ahead of the Phils / Pirates game w/ pop and bro-in-law - our Fathers Day present. This time through I didnt find this offensive at all, probably a function of having come along in drinking maturity these past three years. Great notes of barnyard, spritzy and livening carbonation, some leather and zing, lemons, hay, firm tartness in the finish. A well done casual gueuze drinker, far from over the top, working for me!

Jeg vil srme hellere drikke denne her slags end Chanpagne. Lys gul lettere ugennemsigtig med et lille skum. Sikken en duft. Sur og dejlig med et strejf af noget jordslet gymnastiktj. (det lyder lkkert) Citrusfrugter aaaaaahhh!

Lovely liquid golden color with a supprisingly well formed head, much like a pils. Earthy nose with definite bret. Sharp fruity notes pack a tart punch. Woody, mushroom notes. I am salivating from the aroma. Great complexity in the mouth, with a dry acidic finish. Lime juice and skinless grapes make up the majority of the mouth. Lactic acid and brett funk are well noted. Apples and a slight pepper rounnd off this wonderful gift from God.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 8, 2006
2004 Bottle shared by OldGrowth on 5/6/06. Pours a hazy pale dull golden color with a small white fizzy head. Nose is light barnyard and yeast with some lemony hints and a bit of must. Lots of small bubbles settle at the bottom and randomly float towards the top. Big rush of sour swarms the tongue straight up with some light lemony hints here and there. A nice hint of fresh grass and a refreshing finish to the sour blast. More of the yeast is present and some light juicy fruit notes are left on the palate.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Aroma is very tart, apple skins, brett, band-aids and white wine vinegar. Flavor is really intense up front, biting sourness with a great complexity that is unfortunately very shortly lasting. Finish was very vinegary while cold though really smooths out as it warms. Tastes really organic and intense but still pleasing. I feel like its not my favorite yet I cant stop drinking it and wanting there to be more.

330 ml bottle, 2004 bottling, procured at the brewery in Brussels. Pours a pretty golden orangey color with a slight haze and a thin ring of tiny bubbles. Dry, sour cider aroma, champage and light wet wool notes. Flavors of tart apples, dry champagne, young oak - very tannic, biting astringent finish. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel and little in the way of noticible carbonation.
