look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

750 ML corked bottle with a best by date of october 2011 drank from my duvel tulip glass.

A- this one pours golden colored body with a large white head. the head falls quickly and it leaves spots of lacing on the sides of my glass.

S- vinegar and wild yeast. probably more of this than i have smelled in any other beer. lemony hops.

T- the taste was way less acidic and sour than the nose would have indicated. still very wild tasting. lots of citrus, lemon and orange. slight vinegar.

M- light to medium bodied with a low level of carbonation.

D- one bottle was enough. my stomach felt torn up after this one. a little too acidic to tackle this one on my own. next time ill have a friend help.

Pours a pale orange colour with large head. Some nice lacing on the glass. Smells fairly tart, with a hint of wheat. Some vinegar type aroma as well. Flavour has a mild sourness to it, quite nice. Very smooth carbonation level. I'm glad this came to Ontario, I plan to pick up several bottles.

Poured hazy pale orange with a dense lumpy head. Smell was sweet and floral with a hint of sourness and oak. Taste was sour apple cider, dry, none of the sweetness here, astringent and mouth-coating -- in a good way. I wish this beer was thicker, more full-bodied. Finish was dry as a bone and felt like another sip. Very good, but oddly frustrating, because you wish it were just a little bit better.

Pours a nice clear orange yellow color. With a pure white head of about one finger.

Smells a little spicey. Some lemon notes also.

It's really hard to pick out exact flavors. I get a touch of a peppery spice and a nice amount of sour. A fruit I cNt quite pinpoint. Peach, nectarine maybe?

Light mouth feel. Light a crisp and clean. Very refreshing on a 90+ degree day.

Overall I like this beer alot. It's not offensive in any way and is very tasty. A good straight forward gueuze.

I poured from a 750 ml bottle into a large snifter. It pours a pale, clear yellow with an abundant white head. Lacing is left everywhere. The aroma is sour, sweet and funky with a bit of alcohol thrown in. The flavor is tart fruit, maybe apples, with a dry finish. The beer is light bodied and highly carbonated. The beer is a slow sipper. This is my first gueuze so I was not sure what to expect. It was good for a change of pace, but I will need to try another for comparison purposes.

Presentation: 12oz green mini Champagne-style bottle, capped and corked. Bottled on 2-3-2012. Poured into a Chimay glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy goldenrod hue, with a creamy ivory cap which shows nice retention. Peppy carbonation.

Smell: Well, my wife says it smells like skunk farts. While I have to disagree with her, it is DEFINITELY funky and wild. Lots of earthy and tart funk, herbal, grassy notes, and some citrus as well. Bold and bright.

Taste: Lots of citrus, chalky mineral notes, earthy funk, a hint of Sweet Tart candy, and maybe just a ghostly note of sulfur. Lightly sweet one second, and dry, light-to-medium sour, and a touch bitter the next. Reasonably complex, challenging, and intriguing.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, tart, and a little chalky on the finish.

Overall: At $6.99 a 12oz or $11.99 a 750 (esp. the second option) this is a (at least to this Gueuze newbie's palate) a challenging, interesting, and refreshing traditional wild ale.
