This has been and always be my favorite geuze. As I sip the bottle from my hotel room in Brussels, I am reminded how important this beer is to the history of Brussels. The aroma is powerful with hints of lactic and Brett that remind me of all the complexities of this beer. The beer bone dry with a good biting acidity that comes alive with all of the carbonation in the mouth. The brewer closed down in 2003, but opened up and are starting a revival of sorts. They are making a wonderful triple to help get the lambic side of things going again. The color is of straw with lots of effervensce and a slight whippy white head. The taste is amazing with so many layers and depth. There is citrus, hay, wet horse, wool and a soft malt character that is there for those who choose to dig deep into this beer. The finish is dry and grainy/bready with a zesty sour note. It is a must try even if only to keep this tiny brewery alive !!!!!

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2017 It just seem a little... bland, for a geuse that is. Sure it delivers a decent astringent sourness, with some reasonable sweetness to offset, but it feels like it's lacking in complexity.

PlutonowyMan (849) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2017
Kolor przypomina słabą herbatę z nieznacznym zamgleniem. Piana biała, wysoka i bardzo trwałą, tworzy sporych rozmiarów pióropusz. Aromat owocowy, są jabłka, agrest, mirabelki, nuty octowe kwaśne i chyba te najbardziej wyczekiwane, dzikie i wiejskie. Smak: tutaj klasycznie kwaśno i nieco cierpko. Kwaśne jabłka, ocet, niedojrzały agrest, MInimalnie słodkie mirabelki, które przełamują nieco kwaśność. Delikatnie wiejskie akcenty domykają walory smakowe tego wyśmienitego Gueuze. Na finiszu delikatna goryczka, przypominająca tę z pestek winogron. Średni nasycenie nadaje świeżości. Ciało średnie.

Bottle from LCBO. Pours a deep golden yellow with a white head. Lovely clean sour grape, green apple, and tart lemon aroma, with prominent oaky notes. Tastes of sour grapes, tart green apple, with some lemon and woodiness. Long dry finish.

Pours golden yellow with a small white top. Aroma is light tartness, with some fruit and funk. Taste is a little funk, a little fruit, a little wood and a little flowery. All good, nice and delicate and awesome.

The beer pours a hazy straw colour with a generous off-white head that lasts a while. The aroma is sour grains, wood, some tart fruity notes, and yeast. The mouthfeel is very light bodied, and highly effervescent, very a propos for the style. The flavour has white wine characteristics with a light fruit tartness. It is a very good lambic

Fruity aroma, pours golden colour and clear. Sour taste wasn't expected as not common among the Belgian ales I've sampled. Not my favourite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2017 W aromacie delikatna skóra i cała masa owoców, jabłka, cytrusy. W smaku bardzo fajny kwas, taki jakby agrestowy, może winogrona ze skórką.

Piwo lekko metne w kolorze ciemno pomaranczowym z obfita biala sredniopecherzykowa piana. Dzikosc jak to w lambiku, zielone owoce i swiezy kwaskowy posmak. Zdecydowanie wytrawne z lekko tanicznym finiszem wysyceniem na wysokim poziomie. Bardzo dobre!
