look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottled 11/18/2010 and poured into a wine glass.

A: Cork pops before removing the cage (and almost hit me in the face), champagne like carbonation leads to a thick two fingers off white head that lingers as a thick film. Color yellow orange with a nice haze.

S: Smells of oak, champagne-like, funky and sour.

T: Astringent, band-aid, nice sourness that balances the funk nicely, more oak and a wine like sweetness.

M: Medium body and has lost some carbonation but is still prickly.

O: Quite a delicious geuze, one of the best I have had.

375ml bottle poured into a Cantillon wine glass (and a small Cantillon glass).

Bottled on March 10, 2008.

A - Poured in the traditional method, where the beginning and end of the pour is in a separate vessel (apparently it isn't seen as 'real' gueuze by Armand...) It is a bold, vibrant orange color with it running between light brown and dark yellow as well. Hazy throughout. Because it was a continuous pour, I am left staring at over 3-fingers worth of foamy, off-white head. It recedes fairly quickly, however, leaving big flakes of foam behind.

S - To be honest the nose is slightly less sour and funky than I was expecting. It shades being more toward the funk than the sour, which is always nice. Getting a nice amount of the oak in here. It has a certain wet freshness to it which is surprising given the age, but lends itself nicely to the citrus and tart apples in it.

T - This is one of the most pleasing and inoffensive gueuzes I've had (which isn't drawing from a huge sample, but still!) Not overpowering in terms of funk or acidity or sourness at all, just enough to get the tastebuds tingling and flesh out the flavors. Very reminiscent of a dry white wine in terms of the fruit flavors coming through and the finish. This is like a nice drive through the country rather than having to plow the fields each and every morning type of funk. Enough to give a distinct flavor but not one that overpowers. Very wet and juicy, with the dampness lending itself to some dankness. Finishes with a nice combination of tart apples, grapes, lemons, and a bit of malt.

M - Mouthfeel is relatively light-bodied with high carbonation. Still lively and zesty despite the three plus years of this being in the bottle (not counting the aged lambics within the blend!). Finishes quite dry which accentuates the bite of some of the flavors.

D/O - Drinkability is high. Probably the most 'quaffable' gueuze I've had by far. Each and every sip of this was a joy and the funk definitely did not overshadow any of the subtle complexities of the aged lambic. After sipping from the glass that had the beginning and end of the bottle, it's easily much different than what I had in my drinking glass, which I guess does lend itself to the belief that it should be consumed separately (or not at all according to some brewers, but I won't go that far.) This separate glass was a bit more bitter, didn't have as much fruit zest in it, and was a bit more heavier.

375ml bottle (bottled Dec 12th, 2009) poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a quite clear (90%-ish) pale golden color with a thick couple of fingers of foamy white head that has excellent staying power. A geyser of bubbles rises rapidly out of the bottom of the glass constantly. Low amount of lacing left on the glass.

S - Total gueuzy goodness. Tons of funk hit you immediately upon putting your nose up to the glass. Earthy, barnyardy, horsey are all good descriptors. Lots of fruitines too...tons of lemon, sour apples, limes, grass/hay. This is right up there with Girardin 1882 for me - which says a lot.

T - Excellent blend of flavors...sharp and bright with citrus...fresh lemon and lime juice. Some bitter, earthy funk plays off this perfectly...Balance is exceptional here. Medium level sourness that is crisp and satisfying and gives just the right amount of bite. This is really good!

M - Thinnish body and well carbonated. Lightly puckering from the tartness/sourness in the flavor profile. Well developed funk that fits perfectly without overpowering the fruity aspects within.

O - Really great example of the style...fairly available as well - great combo! I've resisted buying most 3F beers due to price, but bit the bullet on this small 375ml bottle. Definitely glad I did - no disappointment at all - I'd put this in my top 3 gueuzes overall. Love great beer that is pretty easily obtainable!

Rating from 12/5/2010.

Can’t believe I ain’t ticked this yet. Oh well, looks like I’ll be filling a big hole here (that’s what she said). 375ml bottle vintage 2009 from K&L Redwood City. The beer pours hazy golden color with a one-finger white head and good lacing. The aroma is very funky. More funky than sour, which I like. Barnyard and sweet maltiness. The flavor has a very slight sweetness to it as well as a medium level of sourness. Pale malt and funk, oak and earth. I’m not going to go into the delicious yet disgusting farm descriptors, but they worked well. Nice palate, lively yet not overly acidic, with medium body. Rather refreshing when cold. A damn solid gueuze overall.

Bottle dated from late 2010. Relatively fresh!

A: golden and slighly fizzy. Champagne like.
S: I didn't get much from the smell. Some green grape as mentioned below but not too complex.
T: Moderately sour on the front end but quickly dries and disappears on the palate at the end. Very drinkable, taste wise.
M: I rated this a bit lower due to the huge carbonation in the mouth, I feel this took away from the taste with a tonic like quality which seems to wash away the flavor profile a bit too much for my liking. The carbonation actually slowed my consumption of the beer more than the taste.
O: A very good, lighter/drier sour. Not a beer to power through due to the explosion of fizz with each sip. Good but not the best sour I've ever had.

Poured into a snifter from a 375 mL bottle.

Pours a hazy straw reminiscent of a good IPA. Full inch head that dissipates. No lacing.

Smell is funky funky funky. Sour green grapes hit you up front.

Taste was something of beauty. Theres a lot of things going on here and its a good thing. Alot of green grapes, funk, and sour. The sour overpowers the aftertaste, but in a good way.

The best sour I've had.

Poured from a 750 ml magnum into two tall red wine glasses, sharing this ale with my wife. The bottle bears a bottling date of March 15, 2008. Though over three years old, the bottle's label further assures that it is good for "at least" ten years after the bottling date.

Pours a transluscent coppery rouge, with an abundant three finger off-white head that dissipates rather quickly.

Smell is quite pungent, with tart green apples mixing with plenty of yeasty funk, woody oak, and lemongrass. Smelling more like a cider than a beer, this puts a crisp, sharp feeling in your nasal passages.

Hmm. Sour indeed! This has an initial taste of apple cider vinegar, but with plenty of sweeter green apple up front, an herbaceous leafiness toward the middle, and a mild bitterness to finish. A bit of peppery-spice dances across the back of the tongue and down the throat. More cider than beer, this is nonetheless the best tasting sour beer I've ever had.

Thin to medium bodied, with a tongue-curling sourness that reflexively causes one to make the "pucker" face. While there's plenty of carbonation, it is not overpowering.

We've been putting this one off for a while after our first attempt at drinking a geuze a year ago or so. While my taste buds have clearly matured to the point that I can appreciate this more than my last taste of this style, I still find it to be a little too funky and sour for my tastes. My wife, however, has absolutely no use for this beer; give her a sweet lambic, and she's fine, but forget this sour stuff! Still, it seems to be a well-brewed beer, one which withstood a couple years in our cellar just fine. Maybe I'll give this style another year or so, and try again!

A: Hazy golden color with a light tan head.

S: Overpowering aroma. I could smell this from a few feet away. Heavily fermented apple, a bit of white wine, musty barnyard funk and something that smelled a bit like parmesan cheese.

T: I was a little spooked by the smell, but the taste isn't bad. Lots of tartness with some apple cider vinegar, a good dose of funk and a bit of musty wood.

375 mL bottle poured into a Stone tulip.

Bottle details: bottled on December 12, 2009.

A- Pours a hazy yellow with lots of active carbonation. I'd say it was probably close to a 1:1 ratio at the carbonation's peak, but after it settled down, no lacing was left behind. Still, something extremely tasty looms in its appearance.

S- Consists of mild citrus and very little sourness. Not over powerful by any means.

T- Wow this is really nice. Mild sourness, but it's definitely inviting and oh so juicy. Delicious.

M- Perfect medium bodied carbonation for the style. Extremely drinkable.

O- What a great beer. Perfect for a summer night and paired wonderfully with my leftover hummus from the Stone brewery trip only a few hours before. The beer is worth every penny.

Bottle dated Nov 18, 2010
A: This poured a cloudy light gold with some white head.
S: It smelled like lots of oak and funk and vinegar, with some dry white grape and clove and earthy lemon zest.
T: It tasted like dry white grapes and tart earthy lemon zest and very funk oak and clove. It had a clean and tart aftertaste.
M: It was thin and very bubbly. Like champagne.
D: This was a very nice gueuze. The scent and body were spot on, and the taste was very nice too. It wasn't overpowering, but there was still lots of wild funk and tartness. So it was easy to drink, but worth sipping. Age forever for enjoy fresh. Definitely recommended.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottled on December 12, 2009

Appearance - Large white frothy head over a bright, slightly hazy orange-amber beer. Plentiful carbonation is visible.

Smell - A woodsy, sour smell is detectable a foot from the glass. The aroma is very complex with a sweaty, dank cellar funk; wood; and a bitter-sour, almost grapefruit smell.

Mouthfeel and Taste: Tingley, ample carbonation and a medium body highlight the musty sourness. It is tart, but not sharp. The sourness is smooth with lemon rind flavours, chalk, and overripe fruit. It is quite vinous with a tannic, bitter sour grapefruit finish.

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

A: Pours a hazy light amber with a small amount of clumpy but fizzy white head. Some clumps retain for a while, especially around the edge of the glass, leaving good walls of lacing while they last.

S: Funky, earthy, and musty with a clean, sweet, fruity top end.

T: Dense sweet and tart fruit, with the sweet fading towards the finish, leaving a grapefruit-like citrus note for the aftertaste.

M: Medium body, medium to high prickly carbonation.

Overall pretty enjoyable, and certainly not over the top. Nice for something different.

375 C&C Bottle (Nov 18, 2010) courtesy of LSUPT*

*seems like all my reviews are thanks to this guy

Poured cautiously into my Fantome tulip after the frightening burst when popping the top.

Pours a very inviting straw-like yellow that has a very nice glow with or without the light near it. A huge head forms at first, but fades fairly quickly to nothing but a very thin crown. No lacing to be seen. I typically wouldn't be impressed at all by the appearance of this, but I feel like it's very standard for the style.

From the second the cork is popped lemon zest rushes to my nose. Not an extremely sour smell, just a slight tartness, but it's filled with very fresh lemons. Earthy tones like grass, bark, and hay peak through. From the aroma you'd think Belgian Saison, but that's just the aroma.

The taste is outstanding. I didn't read any reviews up to this point of this beer and I was really in the mood for a citrusy zest in my beer and this has tons of it. Very juicy lemon pulp which fades into that earthiness I was getting in the nose. Slight soil-like taste which I liked quite a bit.

The mouthfeel is spot on. The body was quite clear so I felt like I'd have a nice light, Chardonnay-like mouthfeel to it. And it didn't disappoint. Beyond easy to drink and very enjoyable on this warm summer night.

I really liked this beer. I paired it with some habanero pepperjack cheese and it was outstanding. I think I have enjoyed this more than I enjoyed the two Cantillon offerings I've had to this point (Iris & Classic Geuze). Very glad I'm finding a liking to this style.

12.7 oz - Bottle Nov 18, 2010 – poured into a tulip

The cork shot to the ceiling before I finish twisting the cage off! Scared the crap out of me. Had to take a quick breather. Ok, on to the beer…

Appearance- Vibrant golden orange color, with a large bubbly white head. Violently fizzles out to a collar. This beer means business!

Smell- Lemon and leather (I feel I say this a lot). A nice dank, musty, earthiness. Damp hay and some barnyard. Very pleasant.

Taste- Tart lemon, grapefruit, slight apple cider, grape, subtle orange even. Nice complex fruit notes with hints of creamy cheese. Lots of wet hay, barnyard, musty basement, and earth towards the finish. A slight hint of oak and vanilla from the casks. Excellent funk overall, and not bracingly sour. Great complexity as the flavors play off of each other perfectly.

Mouthfeel- Medium light body, somewhat spritzy carbonation, and still fairly creamy. Nearly a bone dry finish.

Overall- I have reviewed this Cantillon and Girardin all to the exact same score. Subtle differences amongst all three, but they are all excellent in their own right. You cant go wrong with either of them.

375 ml bottle graciously opened for me at Craft Ale House for my birthday. As the bartender was taking off the cage, the cork started to come off, evidence of the immense pressure and carbonation inside. After a quick pop, it was poured into a tulip glass.

A: Hazy golden orange body with a quite big, fluffy white head. This quickly settled into nothing but a thin ring around the edges of the glass. No lacing, albeit pretty standard fair when it comes to the appearance of a Gueuze. Let's be honest, they're not the most gorgeous things to look at.

S: Tart fruit notes come full force from the glass. Green apple, lemon, pink grapefruit and white grapes. The funky nature of the yeast comes through with a certain dry hay-like quality and some musk. A touch of oak is trailing off into the end of the nose and not leaving much behind. If your senses are too slow, you'll miss it.

T: Puckering, tart and somewhat vinegary initially. The rush of the wild yeast byproduct quickly goes clean and brings forward some very nice fruit notes. Green apple and lemon are most evident, as well as a bit of a caramel malt sweetness. The oak seems to be missing at first, but it does make a showing in the crisp, dryness of the linger. It's not substantial but definitely noticeable if you're looking for it. For the style, this is just absolutely fantastic.

M: Light bodied, effervescent, crisp and prickly. Somewhat sticky and dry in the finish due to in part how tart this beer is, but it's ideal for the style.

I much preferred this one to Cantillon's Gueuze as I felt the flavor profile was much more diverse and intense. The traditional elements are all here and seem carefully blended. A truly outstanding Gueuze in its own right.

375ml bottle 6,0% Abv
Served chilled in a tulip wine glass
BBE 19/11/2020

The cork popped off with a loud bang as soon as the cage was removed - the wild yeast seems to have been very busy in this bottle.

Appearance: Pretty standard body for a gueuze - golden and lightly clouded. The head is massive, but recedes pretty quickly; leaving some decent lace and a small cap that lasts through the whole bottle.

Smell: Another beer confirming my view that gueuzes are some of the best smelling and most complex brews in the world. Tart fruit start things off - Apples, white grapes, over-ripe/rotting peaches and a touch of lemon. Funk is not far behind with stale cat pee, wet hay, cobwebs, mold, cheese and leather. A light oak aroma is also noted.

Taste: Very tart to start, apples, lemon, white grapes and a touch of sour passion fruit are all there. Superb funkiness - undergrowth, mold, rotting fruit, wet hay, leather, cheese and oak. Another gueuze that is so complex that it would be impossible to list all the flavours.

Mouthfeel: Quite highly carbonated (needs a few minutes to settle down), medium body and a wonderful dry lingering finish.

Overall: As many have said, this style is not for everyone, but if you like sours as I do it is a superb example and one I would highly recommend.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a clear yellow/gold with a finger of fluffy white head that goes away quickly.

Smell: Sour vinegar and lemon. Funky with some hay notes.

Taste: Quite tart with a strong lemon presence. Funky but not overly so. Crisp and a bit bitter with a sour finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with prickly carbonation and a super dry finish.

Overall: I thought this beer was very refreshing. A good amount of sourness. The lemon notes were very welcome. I would have this one again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle date of November 2010.

Pours surprisingly quite clear golden with a large fluffy white head. Super active carbonation. The head sticks around and leaves sticky lacing.

Smell is quite amazing. Barnyard, sour, acidic, wet grass, cheesy aged hops, oak, and quite a lot more than I could pin point. There's a hint of malt/wheat sweetness, but I can tell it's going to be a bone dry beer.

The taste begins with an acidic bite that is rounded off with a mellow woody smoothness. Grassy funk and a slight bitterness. Overripe fruit and oak.

Prickly carbonation with a dry but smooth finish. The acidity clings to the side of the mouth. The carbonation makes it surprisingly refreshing.

An excellent geuze. I would probably like it even more with age, but not even a year in the bottle, and there's tons of complexity.

What a great Oude Geuze. Such a harmony. After finishing the bottle I turned my glass four times to catch the very last drip, wishing this sensation wasn't over.

L: Nice top for a geuze. Golden, bright look.
S: Almost undescribable; earthy yeast, bit mushroom, every further description (a little bit of this and a little bit of that -citrus for example-)doesn't come near the unique round Geuze-smell;
T: In great harmony with the smell. Some geuzes taste like unripe, green apples. In this one the apple is crispy/fresh/ripe for the first day. Also cream and oak.
M: there's a little too much CO2, but further: excellent. The mouthfeel is like a beautiful accord. Sour, but not too sour. Alcohol of 6% is perfect chosen. Dry aftertaste ofcourse, but not too dry. It's an invitation to take another sip.

Sometimes the aftertaste is so dry (f.e. Boon Oude Geuze), it feels like a roadblock - and you have to start over again. This one is more like a stick for an endless relay-run.

Green label; 37,5 cl. bottle

Warning: I almost died when I unfastened the metal. The cork shoot to the ceiling and ,when returning, just missed me. Many Champagne wines would be jalous about this force!

330mL bottle poured into tulip - thanks to rob for sharing

Pours a hazed straw yellow with some brighter tones. A fluffy white head rests on top for a bit, leaving some layers of film and lacing.

Notes of spritzy tartness, funk and lemon peel in the nose. Faint earthiness and citrus, definitely sour but not overwhelming.

Spike of sourness on the tongue up front, highlighted by lemon peel and citrus flavors. Straw and biscuit tones with hints of earthiness. Smooth, balanced, and pleasant drinking, even with the welcomed notes of funk and hay. Not overly lactic, but still decently sour throughout. Finishes a bit dry while lingering on the palate.

Medium body, nice carbonation level, dry and lasting on the tongue, wraps around and holds tight. Pretty much an ideal, relatively easy to find gueuze, although I'll give the edge to Cantillon classic.

Poured from a 750ml into a RR tulip, this blend was bottled on April 26th, 2010

Pours a creamy marmalade orange, with a head that dissipates into a ring of foam around the edges. Cloudy with a tint of yellow around the edges too. Spritzy bubbles can be seen dancing around the top from all over the sides and bottom of the glass. Truly inviting.

You can already smell the beer seconds after the cork is popped. An earthy funk similar to a dank basement or barn is the general vibe of the aroma. Wet hay, horse blanket, and cobwebs. Tingly, sharp citric notes of lemon and a hint of cheese behind that fruityness. Dust and a bit of leather after agitation as well.

A sharp lemon flavor crowds the palate at first, followed by a funky lactic cheeseyness. Beyond that, flavors move into the barnyard funk. Wet hay and horse blanket, with some unpasteurized cheese as well. Leaves a stale bread and funky socks kind of taste in your mouth once swallowed.

On the palate, it's medium bodied with small tingly bubbles however, it has more of a creamy texture to it. Almost like slightly carbonated skim milk.

Overall, an outstanding gueuze for it's availability. Something I try to turn people onto whenever possible. Sharp citric notes with plenty of funk. Endlessly complex and subtle. Truly world class and something every beer drinker should try atleast once in their lives.

S: Very tart and crisp with a lemony citrus flavor. There is also some barnyard funk.

T: The taste is very sour, funky and causes my mouth to water. There is a little bit of vinegar which fades quickly to a pleasant tartness. In the background I can make out some Belgian yeast and mild caramel malts.

S - smells has a nice mushroom and humid barn scents with some citric tones and some sour tones. Really nice bouquet ascending from the glass.

T - starts off with a jaw-clenching sourness but soon settles down after a couple of drinks. This thing is amazingly sour with hints of soft mushrooms and a bit of funk, but these flavors a masked behind the citrus sourness.

M - full bodied, beautiful carbonation. One of the beat mouthfeels I have experienced.

D - this is a really solid gueze, one of the best I have had the pleasure of trying. As stated many times above, very sour and yet very delicious. Good thing I have 3 more of these sitting in the cellar!

S: not as funky as others but it is still there, mostly barnyard. Some fruity notes and a touch of malt hidden in as well.
