sampled on cask at the brewery's restaurant. a nice orange color with the most impressive head I've ever seen: absolutely solid. formed a hole to drink through, like ice fishing, but the rest stayed throughout; when the beer was gone the head sat on the bottom of the glass. smells of funky complexities -- I finally know what people mean by "barnyard" in a beer; also slightly sweet and yeasty. taste is everything it should be. dry mouthfeel. refreshing and so easy to drink that we couldn't believe how quickly a liter disappeared.

Must confess, I am finding guezes a tad difficult to review, in that they do mostly seem to exhibit the same flavours, well at least the good ones do.
This one.... Looks the biz, lovely gold straw initial pour, with pillowy white head, aromas of cooking apples, lemons, semillon, wood... Taste to follow is nice and sour, in vein of aromas, more lemons, but not quite puckering. Dances on tongue with light, but definite carbonation.
All in all top stuff, top gueze.... Maybe I just need to do a massive a - b taste comparison to start understanding the subtleties that set this apart from, say, Cantillon. Maybe less sour? Hmmm
