competent geuze had a 2007 vintage at akkurat. high carbonation and some sticky notes. greenclansman (834) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - FEB 13, 2013
I adore sour ales and gueuze beers. I am not a specialist but I like them. This one seemed a bit too easy, but on the very pleasant side. I really enjoyed it, as far as the taste, but aroma-wise and aftertaste-wise it was a bit easy. If i can find it in a better price, for sure I will try it. kraddel (9209) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2012
smells sour , intense, even some alcohol. tastes very dry, slightly sour. overall very mediocer geuze to me . 77ships (11412) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 23, 2012
UPDATED: APR 4, 2013 375 ml. bottle corked and caged – split with Kraddel – opened this one like usually, twisting the cork a bit, letting it release its pressure… - the cork still hit the ceiling – wow – that is a first timer for me – not a gusher – hazy golden, creamy white head – smell is gives of the impression of characteristic Boon funk to me but I might be imagining things, knowing who made this , who knows? Musty, very heavy on the wheat, light herbs, touch old lemon – taste is like – how would I describe it – very heavy wheat; feels like they added worth or meertse to this or something, almost chewing, but base stuff, Boon funk, bitter herbs, old lemons, some sweet apples, mellow citus, barn – as mentioned previously the body is hazy as hell – drinkable, enjoyable but that added worth or meertse impression – I enjoy it because I really dig the style but I usually rate real geuze higher than this. The name does not come from that De Koninck brewery as I initially mistakenly thought but rather a completely different brewery.

Bottle 375ml @ Geokkjer beerandbeyond (1009) - ISRAEL - SEP 22, 2012
Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of a bit sweeter classic gueuze. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium sour with a dry finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.
Bottle sample. yngwie (17262) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Cloudy yellow color, thick white head.
Citric nose, barnyard and bretty aromas.
Complex flavor of aggressive acidity and bitter tannins , with soft fruity sweetness (green apples) and yeast.
Highly carbonated, long finish.
Bottle, 375ml, corked. From trade with jbrus. It pours an unclear, orange-golden body topped by an off-white head. Bready notes in the aroma, with citrus peel, barnyard and something almost sweetish in the back. The flavor is quite bready, although with the expected gueze-sourness and funk. Barnyard and lemon juice. Tart, medium bodied and pleasantly carbonated. A rather light weight geuze, but it drinks easy and doesn’t taste bad at all. 120302 gunnfryd (15330) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2012

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2013 2000 bottle. Golden color. Honey in the somewhat cheesy aroma. Low on carbon. Sweetish, slightly sour, vinous flavor with plums and cheesy notes. Well matured, bad sadly based on a sweetened geuze. 6 4 7 4 14 = 3.5
2011 bottle, tasted september 2013. Corked bottle. Honey color. Lemon and peach in the aroma. Soir oaky flavor with lemon and hints of honey and peach. Well balanced, friendly yet sour geuze, not too complex, but very nice to drink. And not a trace of the sweetness found in the 2000 geuze.
