ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Reviewed 12/31/2012. Thanks to Momar42 for all three gueuzes (and the kriek surprise afterwards!) This was part of the gueuze showdown, pitting Tilquins gueuze against the juggernaut duo known as Cantillon Gueuze and Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze. Part of a 750mL bottle poured into a Cantillon tulip. Notes from last nights Skins/Cowboys game. A: Pours a hazy golden color. The head is a half finger white color with poor retention. S: This one had the most balanced hybrid between winy fruit tartness and earthy funk. A very expressive aroma, and the best one of the three (by a small margin). T: Acetic sourness comes on the palate fast and hard, and then afterwards cheesy, earthy funk...finishes the flavor profile fast and hard. This was the boldest and most complex of the three, yet it wasnt that much harsher than the 3F (certainly it was somehow more subtle than Tilquins offering). Shockingly easy to drink for me. M: The finish is the dirtiest and most tannic of the three, closing the palate with big dryness, yet minimal harshness. This one is actually pretty thick in its texture, accentuating a fuller level of carbonation than the 3F Oude Geuze. O: This was the winner in my book - but I wouldnt dare recommend this one to beginners. There is a sense of subtle delicacy to it; however the bigness of the acetic sourness, wet hay, and cheesy funk WILL scare off the average Fat Tire drinker the way a celery stalk scares off a fat kid. And moreso than the other two gueuzes, in fact. To those acclimated to the styles idiosyncrasies, this ones hard to beat.

cmacklin (1067) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2017
750ml bottle. As 100% Lambic Bio. (5.5% ABV) Pours a hazy orange with a medium, short lived, fizzy, white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma of barnyard, leather, lemon, green apple, apricot, orange and vinegar. Sweet fruity flavour of lemon, grapefruit, lime, orange, apricot, green apple, vinegar and light brett with a dry, tart, bitter, champagne-like finish. Light to medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Very nice, has some complexity.

AaronIPAAPA (90) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 17, 2017
Żłciutkie, klarowne, piana szybko opada. W aromacie jest dosyć mało brettw. w smaku głwnie kwasność i taniniczność, mało skry. jak na gueuze, to jest bardzo gładko i grzecznie. Ocena na podstawie notatek pisanych przed założeniem konta na RB.

Stajnia, agrest, biała porzeczka, trochę kwaśnych jabłek, w smaku świetnie zbalansowane, nisko-średnia kwaśność.

beton (340) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Zapach umiarkowanie kwaśny, dziki, skra, cytryna, kwaśne jabłko, kolendra, zioła i kwiaty, dosyć mineralny. W smaku dosyć jest kwaśne, bardziej dzikie, orzeźwiające z zaznaczoną średnią w stronę delikatnej, goryczką. Słodycz kojarząca się z węgierskim Tokajem, garść cytryn, niuansy kwiatowe, funky.

Pours clear golden with no head. Spiky, sour citrus aroma. Flavour is dominated by tart sourness... light funk, green apple... dry finish. Not really a style I enjoy, but this was very nice.

Tappad 2011 Brigt syrlig doft med inslag av stall, aning urin, citrus och tropiska frukter. Gyllengul frg, halvdisig. Ett champagneskum som lgger sig omedelbart. Avrundad, syrlig och stor, mogen karaktr. Lite mjlksyra men med hrlig vingarartad riktning utan att bli tvr eller kantig. Torr avslutning. Hatten av fr en super-gueuze och utmrkt hantverk!
