look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours amber, big white head for just a few minutes, reduced to a thick sticky lace and lots of traces.
Smell of candi sugar, low vinegar, ripe grapes, cooked apple, oveerripe citrus, mixed grains, faintly funky.
Sourness delivered in the taste, at least with a short lemon zesty flash in the start. Some candi sugar and sweet grains follow, along with a bit of cidder apple/pear/grape fruitiness. Sourness comes back in the finish, alongside a bit of funk and some decent oak wood notes. Dry finish, some grass, some white grapes and the wood carries on to the aftertaste.
Medium body and carbonation.
It goes a bit too fast from sour to sweet and back again, and has some bad malty notes. Otherwise, decent for its price.

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

Ppurs an amber colour, some bubbles round the edge. Head lacklustre, some cloud. Good lace. Pleasant.

Smells oxidised. Slight funk. But a lot of dark fruit. Some cardboard. Bit of a shame, could be delicious fresh.

Taste is pretty tasty. Some sour notes, a bit of funk. Belgian notes, maybe touch of cardboard but has a late barrel note; some woodiness which is nice but has notes of oxidisation. Pleasant enough overall.

Smooth, some dry notes on the back. Fair texture.

Drinks Belgian but tastes like a bottle shop owner has hung onto it a bit too much. Decent but a bit too stale compared with how it should taste.

not as intense and bright as some beers in this genre, but not a bad version. the pour is really flat, like a glass of chardonnay, with no head or visible carbonation at all and a shiny white grape color. the nose is sour indeed, not so puckery or bacterial, but fruity and tart, again like a wine. the taste is pretty relaxed actually, and this beer is not nearly as complex and layered ad the usual gueuze, if there is such a thing... its sour but dry too, a little sleepy. the feel kills it for me, the light body is fine, but there is literally zero carbonation happening. its like a glass of flat pear cider or something, only sour. the rouge is a splendid beer, this one not so much when considered on the whole. cool to try it on tap at the monk on Colfax though, but I wont pay 9 bucks for one of these ever again.

On tap at the Zythos Festival in Belgium, March 2011. reviewed from notes.

Is this really a gueuze?

Body is clear gold, more like a lager than a gueuze in appearance. Poured with a massive head, with good retention and lots of lacing. Also, unusual for a gueuze.

Smells of wild yeast and musty, like a gueuze, but also sweet for a gueuze.

Tastes of old lambic, a bit sour, but also a bit sweet for a gueuze.

Body is light and crabonation is crisp. Has a refreshing lively mouthfeel.

A drinkable and refreshing beer. However, it is actually a lager blended with a blend of old lambics. This is an odd-ball beer, like the Del Borgo Duchessic, which is a blend of saison and lambics. This is definitely a novelty beer--I can only wonder why someone would add lambic to a lager? Like any lager, I could drink a pint of it on a warm day and the lambic adds an interesting sour taste.
