COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Orangish amber in color with a white light lacy head. Smell is of yeast, tart, fruity, and funkyness. Maybe a little young yet. Taste is sour, dry, almost spiced? Maybe its the wood coming though. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a translucent pale yellow with a lasting white head. The aroma is slightly skunky with some strong sour notes. It’s also quite yeasty in the aroma. The flavour isn’t as tart as I was hoping, though. The sourness is somewhat like a lemon or apple, but with yeasty qualities surrounding it. Some nice cheese notes especially in the finish. Dry sourness bursts a little in the finish as well as a light bitterness. This is pretty good.

Best by 1/26/2025! Copper viscous pour with fluffy white head and excellent lace. Lemon tart aroma. Tart green apples is the distinct flavor I’m getting. Nice dry finish!

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Best by 2026! Yowzah, I’m not even close! Light yellowy with a thin white head. Sweet, very, for the style. A bit of oaky vanilla. Thin body, low carbonation. Not at all dry. Sweeter! Oak lingering tannins. Not too tart or sour at all. Lacking the bracing refreshing tartness a lambic should have. Maybe this needs a decade or two?

gueuzeisgod (113) - Graham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2008
375ml bottle, BB date of 6-01-2025. One of my favorite beers of all time, a bit unique as geuzes go, lemongrass and leather, hay and old barnwood smell. Head collapses down to a thin bead rather quickly. The sourness is quenching but not nearly as aggressive as Cantillon or Hanssen’s (my favorite so far). Not at all vinegary; a bit of citrus pith keeps the mouthfeel astringent-The smell gets horsier and leatherier as it warms up. I could drink this one in great quantity as a daily staple. Superb.

BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Bottle received from Ernest. Pours sparkling gold with an average, white, fizzy head, lasting with spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, meal), average hops (grass), average yeast (earth, horse blanket) with notes of green apples, grapes, and pears. Light bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

Pale brown colour. Typical sourness. A nice tasty gueuze. Hints of grapefruit in the aroma. Some wood in the end.

Fin (11069) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2008
Bottle from Dranken Geers, near Gent, Belgium, March 08 consumed 25-05-08 My first pour was clear gold, with nice big white bubbly head that rapidly vanished, this beer became cloudier and murkier the more that I got down the 750ml bottle. Aroma was leathery, dusty and also moist flannel, unusual in that I failed to notice any barnyard funkiness, my twelve year old niece said she could smell rusty nails. Taste was quite big on grapefruits, good sharp acidic bite though not as fearsome as some Geuze, tasty beer refreshing and most enjoyable.

3.5
FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008
Bottle. Hazy ylellow colour with a small white head. Aroma and taste of sour apples and citrus. Milld in taste and body. Sweeter than expected.
