UPDATED: APR 1, 2012 Clear, pale body with a small white head, fading. The aroma is very lactic, heavy horseblanket, lots of cheese and light melon. The flavor is very dry and sour, lots of lemon and yogurt, some melon and orange. Light, briny olives. Medium body with lively carbonation, fills the mouth, soft and succulent. Hands down, the best, most consistently awesome, regularly bottled gueuze. Rating based on ’09 through ’11 bottlings. reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2007 Golden as most gueuze with a thin white head. Faint aroma of vinegar, pineapple, lemon lime and a hint of barnyard. Salty to the taste with again pineapple and vinegar. Nice and tart but short lived on the tongue. Somewhere in the middle ground of complexity, tasty...(6, 3, 8, 4, 16) footy (345) - scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Bottle from Quaffs.
Golden topped with a nice lasting white head. Aroma is lemon/lime, yeast, vinegar and hay. Tart and salty with lemon, vinegar and yeast, coats your mouth and leaves you wanting more. Great palate for a geuze, thick and syrupy. I can see why this is rated one of the best
City Beer, San Francisco 7/06. 375ml. Hazy golden/amber with large white head. Musty tart aroma. Pleasant tart musty flavor milder less vinegary than Cantillion. Good body welll balanced. Very good. Wharfrat (27) - Alabama, USA - FEB 17, 2007
The cork flew out of the bottle, but there was no beer spewage, as some others have reported.
This beer pours with a nice creamy off white head. The aroma is great for the style. Nice funky tart smell.
The hand pulls the glass form the mouth as the first drops hit the tongue. The acidity and tartness, while expected by the brain, still surprise the tongue. But once the tongue gets used to the tartness, it processes the flavors that were predicted by the first smell. Very complex, funky flavor. And very good.
Mouthfeel is nice and light, with a lot of carbonation.
Overrall, a great Gueuze. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2007
375ml, dated 08/05. poured a semi-hazy gold with big white head. the nose bursting with sour peaches, brett, and oak. very funky nose. flavor is sour at first then smoothly develops into a really bretty flavor and that continues into really tart peach finish. finishes extremely dry. palate is lively, full, and perfect. the best gueuze i’ve had so far.

pours a peach hay colour small white fizzy head. lots of bubbles. tha aroma is sweet and sour fruit very nice mixture. flavour is sour appple with some citrus and a very sour pungent finish. the palate comes alive with this one. i never thought i would like tart and sour beer, but i am in love with them now. a fantastic gueuze. jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Pours hazy peach-gold with a one-finger white head. Very dirty aroma, with big barnyardy and musty notes. Fruit comes through as apple, peach, and orange. Some wood, but not so much oak barrel as green yew. Very unique flavor, even for a gueuze. The tartness and dirtiness are there, but accompanied mid-sip by a sweet, juicy, orange taste. The end is grassy and citrusy. Earthy aftertaste that I’d like to see stick around a little more than it does. Excellent. marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Citrus aroma, fresh and bright. Light orange color with white frothy head. Flavor is unusual. Sour, tart with a light sweetness. Almost like the juice of some kind of pickle. Light grapefruity quality. Well carbonated and a rich palate. Natual and strong. Good overall. robinvboyer (4666) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 yellow/orange color, big offwhite head.
citrus, and wood in the aroma. very very tart, and sour, i love it!
so complex, best geuze out there! hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Dark orange, light amber, big ol’ off-white rocky head. Grapefruit and woody aroma, hints of tartness. The flavour is tart and sour, lemon grass is hidden in some more woody and grapefruit like flavours. It’s a complex beer that is too good for description.
