Clear golden orange with a white head. Vinegar and butter on the nose. Very unpleasant. Minimal fruit or funk, a bit of lemon zest, and perhaps some malt sweetness. Tastes of straw, butter, and vinegar. A mild bread sweetness, some straw, grass, and a bit of harsh oak.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2017 Totalnie inne piwo niż black label. Mało w ogóle lambikowe. Coś jakby dziki saison. Do tego wyraźnie miodowy i kwiatowy, odrobinkę tylko dziki. Słodki, mało kwaśny.

Less developed than black, a bit less wild, a bit less sour, a bit less leathery but when it adds up it makes significantly less interesting gueuze.

Poors very clean ocre, surprisingly big head. Aroma distictly peppery, light funk. Taste surprisingly different compared to the black version, less complex. low acidity, only light funk, slightly vinous though but also malty, if I am not mistaken. I wouldn't go as far as to say it's sweet but there's definately an impression of butterscotch to it. Not bad but lacks depth in my opinion.

250ml bottle. BB Jun-2013. Pours a hazy amber with a tan head. Aroma is malty, earthy, some caramel, bready. Same taste. Not bad.

Bottle shared at beeroda tasting session.Fruity nose. Funky, pineapple taste, bone dry mouthfeel. Low, but fitting bittereness. Strong brett notes. Nice!

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2017 Gylden, næsten brun i glasset. En smule stald i næsen. Fin syre, men også lidt sødme, hvilket ikke klæder den.

Not everybody’s cup of tea, but for an official Gueuze-Disciple, this is one great beer. A bit less ’extreme’ in its sour flavors and hints of fermentation compared to other peers.

Parmenion777 (356) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle - pours a slightly hazy orange with a white head which quickly dissipated to a film. A sweetish geuze aroma, cider apples, wood, funk and floral honey. The flavour is good, a nice balance of sweet and sour, lemon, honey, wood and yeasty notes of the wild fermentation. Nice.

bottle at home bought from honestbrew.co.uk. This is my second time drinking a Gueuze. I found this much easier. It didn’t have the cidery taste like other one I had. However a very pleasant drink

A 375ml corked and caged bottle. The cork had the words Diam DX 2016 and the number 08 on it, which I think I’ve worked it out to mean Batch D, bottled in August 2016. Poured into a Cantillon Gueuze glass. It was a clear copper orange colour with a half finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly, but settles to a thin replenishing layer with sparse lacing. Aromas were sour-ish, raisins, green apple, pear, vinegar, oak and hints of cheese. Tastes tart and lightly sour, apple cider vinegar, apple core, lemon peel, grass and oak with a sweet-ish raisin, prune like finish. Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Overall aroma and taste were very different to all other Gueuze’s that I’ve tried and in this case, was just not really my thing, especially the dark fruit like sweetness and apple cider vinegar. I’d just stick with the Black Label version.
