Poured a deep orange color with brownish hues. Thin large-bubbled head dissipates quickly. Lactic tartness present with a sweet grainy aroma. Not a ton of funk, but a decent aroma. Nice palate, not too thin or overcarbonated. Taste is dry throughout, with a tart bready start that gives way to a sharp dry sour finish. A nice finish, but I’d like a larger funk component to it. Interesting to move around the gueuze category a bit after having a few of the ones with high standing. Tranquillity (2563) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 Bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Great aroma of green apples and citrus. Pale hazy with a beige head. Taste mellow apple juice, not too dry. Very fancy finish. dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Pale golden yellow, a bit murky, with a very large, huge bubble stark white head that lasts. Aroma is grape skins, a bit tannic, lemon as well as a slight pale malt character. Quite tart on the palate. Overarching fruitiness: white grape and lemon, citric sourness, grape skins, a bit of apple. Lacks a bit of depth, missing that zesty spice and yeasty funk components. Effervescent but not quite high levels of carbonation. Crisp, quite dry, nice but doesn’t quite make it to Cantillon or 3F heights. malrubius (3081) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 6, 2007
12 ounce bottle in a pint glass. Pours bright orange with slight chill haze and lasting white head. Tart aroma of orange fruitiness, barnyard and baseball glove. Complex flavors of fresh orange fruitiness, horseblanket, and tart dry finish. Medium-light body, medium-high carbonation. Maybe a little too cold, but absolutely delicious. sunevdj (4143) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a quickly dissappearing white head. Sweet and sour. Berries (hip). Quite high carbonation. Fresh and not too sour. Also unripe forest berries.

Bottle. Average fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Light cloudy golden color. Aroma of wood, leather, barnyard, vinegar, citrus. Medium bodied with a lively carbonation and dry texture. Balanced light to moderated acidic and sweet flavor. Dry and sour finish. Beerlando (3343) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Rated 8/3/07. Bottle at Redlight Redlight. Courtesy boboski. Cloudy, yellow-gold body with the thinnest, faintest film of white micro-bubbles on the surface. Leaves behind a snake-like lacing. The aroma is a very dank, dusty, yeasty, farmhouse-like smell that is actually oddly appealing. The flavor has quite a bit of sour lemon, grapefruit, and sour apple. Its very reminiscent of a crisp Sauvignon Blanc. There is clearly alot of ascorbic acid in there, which undoubtedly accounts for the sourness. On the light side of medium bodied, with a clean, lip-smacking finish. Very nice for my first experience with geuze. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Corked bottle from Flaco Alto. Thanks! Pours clean, lively cheddar orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma is cozy barnyard with nutmeg and coriander in there as well. Slight bit of apple in the fragrance. Flavor is sour lemon and lime, with a touch of sour orange and apple. Very mouth puckering finish. Nice, clean mouthfeel. Great gueuze. voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2007
Cloudy golden with a big fluffy white head. Smooth aroma, lots of oak, citrus and funk... but still very clean. Medium body, sharp acidity. Smooth flavours of citrus... really hard to tell what I’m picking up in this beer, a problem I usually have rating Gueuze in general. Its just tart and ridiculously quaffable. downender (9003) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2007
Bottle. Near orange coloured with a rocky white head. Aroma of yeast, grapefruit and honey. Plenty of acidity in the mouth with a flavour of bitter lemon and summer fruits. Very good, but not my favourite gueuze.
