look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Presentation: Slender 8oz brown bottle with a freshness date stamped on the label.

Appearance: Hazy amber with a lace like Houdini, now you see it and now you don't. Sediment stays on the bottom of the bottle quite well.

Smell: Raw honey, fruity aromas of ripe tropical fruit and a mild sour note also.

Taste: Thinnish mouth feel with a light crisp carbonation, tartness is of lemon rind and the malt character is more husky grain than anything else. Mild fruitiness and honey-like sweetness. Tartness fades quickly and a dry grainy after taste is all that is left.

Notes: Lacks complexity and depth that the usual Gueuze expresses. This beer did not move me in anyway.

A sweeter gueuze, and i suspect sweetened, very sweet nose, but has a bit of earthiness and tartness, but, it was a bit too sweet on the palate, i think this is obviously targeted at a wider audience. Not for hardcore beer fans, but theres enough in there to make it OK, slight sour tart flavour, but as i said too sweet.

First had: on tap at Eulogy, Philly, PA

Poured a hazy golden brown with a quickly receding white head. Slightly sweet aroma with some tartness in the background. A sour beer to the tongue surely, yet on the thin side. Grainy and nectar sweetness coming through. Much too light-bodied for this style. Somewhat acrid aftertaste, and not what I'd call a very drinkable beer. Approach with caution.

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.

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.
