look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

375 ml bottle, bottled in 2009, poured into a tulip glass at Ølbutikken.

A- Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color, topped with a finger of white head that recedes to a thin layer, leaves a bit of spotty lacing.

S- Moderate acidity with lemon, awesome earthy, wet, musty funk along with some damp oak. Smells very nice.

T- Acidity is considerably ramped up in the flavor, very tart, lemony, some white grape. Earthy funkiness is a bit more toned down, with some damp oak, hay, grass.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel, finishes very dry.

O- A really nice gueuze, I would certainly drink this regularly if it was easier to find in the US.

750ml - bottled a year ago

A - pours a hazy orange with an ephemeral white head. No lace. Bubbly.

S - softer aroma than its peers. Green apple, toasty malt, soft cider vinegar, leather and faint oak. Not much in the way of funk beyond a soft lactic note.

T - tart green apple, lemon, oak, a dash of black pepper. Lactic and acetic, but less than some of its peers.

M - light body. Dry and tart, but not quite sour. Lively carbonation with a mild peppery zing. Crisp.

O - this Gueuze is less extreme than Cantillon or 3F. Similar to Tilquin, but with less lacto. Not complaints. Easy to drink with moderate acidity for the style. It tastes different than the three mentioned. More reserved, less funky, has a maltier aroma and has a nicely balanced, elegant flavor.

Deep amber gold, clear as a whistle. Poured at cellar temperature into a Lost Abbey tulip, produced a half inch head of foam. Some small curtains of sticky lacing.

Light, airy, well integrated notes of fresh apple and citrus, light funk, old wood, touch of mint.

Lovely taste of green apple and lemon, oak, grassy hops. Good acidity balanced by malt/sugar sweetness. Finishes clean with a light citrus peel/tannic bitterness.

Light body with fizzy carbonation, has a crisp and refreshing mouthfeel.

Overall, a really pleasant Oude Geuze to drink, light and airy, yet subtly complex. The whole beer is so well integrated in taste, body, and carbonation--nothing is out of place and the flavors sit on a mousse of carbonation, another example of a geuze as good as some fine champagne.

Bottle shared by Liam

Bright orange colour, fairly generous white head, good lace as well. Smell is sour and funky, earthy and grassy, tart lemony citrus, a bit of balsamic but very vibrant, lots of tart fruity notes, green apple, quite nice. Taste is sour and quite tart, cider and apple, fruity with some lemon, drying finish and well executed. Med-high drying carbonation, medium bodied. Awesome stuff here, drinks like a dream would welcome this gladly anytime.

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

A: Orange. Slightly hazy. Low effervescence. Tiny head of small bubbles
S: More yeasty than a lot of other geuzes. Juicyfruit.
T: Medium soft acidity, making it a bit thin. Low carbonation. Subtle tea-like bitterness with a dash of lemon.
O: A pleasant, drinkable lambic. However, it isn't of the best in its category. Its balance is hampered by not enough acidity and too much yeastiness. Comparable to Lindemands.

Bottle from Etre Gourmet, 375ml into a tulip. 2009 vintage.

Translucent golden yellow with a white head, good retention and light lace. Nose of light sour citrus, wet hay/grass, some earthy tones, and horse manure in the peripheral. All that I want in a gueuze is found here. Taste has more hay, grass and light tart lemon. Earthy and dirt-y. Medium body, light/medium tartness. Hella refreshing, an amazing gueuze.
