Beer pours a very nice clear amber color. There is a thin bubbley pure white head that quickly disappears and leaves no lace.

The aroma is fairly typical. Sour fruit notes, yeast, makes the mouth water.

Taste is nice. A simple tartness that makes your lips smack. Tastes of oak and yeast. Not overly complex.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice carbonation bite.

Drinkability is moderate. Flavors are good and alcohol is low, but tart beers are not incredibly sessionable.

Sorry but this following comment is in french :

Appearance : gueuze de couleur bronze dorée, mousse tenant peu, fines bulles et belle effervescence
Smell : notes de pommes
Taste and mouthfeel : goût délicieusement acidulé, finale sèche
Drinkability : une bonne bière dans le style gueuze traditionnelle

I bought a crate of this beer some 1½ years ago. I did a review of the first bottle I drunk and now I’m having the last one...

The colour is orange-yellow with a red tint; the liquid is hazy. There isn’t much of head, just a minimal white ring.

The strong smell is most of all sour; it reminds more of vinegar than beer. There are also some minerals, earthy iodine and dome bitterness. Maybe it is a bit simple for a Guezue.

The taste is sour with earthy notes of iodine and other minerals. The sourness passes, leaving a fruity flavour of sour candy, reminding me of a good Weissen.

The carbonation is very strong and rather short. Good.

An OK Guezue, but there are others, more demanding and expressive to chose from.

This beer has an golden orange colour. The head wasn’t big. But a small survivor stands strong.
I poured it in a Boon gauze glass. Some carbonation is present, as are the little flocks floating around from the brewing process.
The smell was a bit worrying, it reminded me of dissolvable vitamin tablets. Something I have tasted before in the Wittekerke Rosé. Fruit, mostly orange, grapes and sour apples. A sticky sweetness.
The taste is much more sour than other Geuzes. Almost like vinegar. Combined with a big deal of carbonation, lemons, oranges and some yeast.
The aftertaste is more like that typical and traditional Geuze taste. Sweet Lambic with a sour layer.

Not bad, but not the best.

Ut Vivat, Crescat, Floreat!

Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma was sour wild yeasts and a bit grassy. Taste was a tart cherry at first, with citrus and grapes coming in later, very complex. The mouthfeel was almost thick, quite impressive. I like to finish most Belgian beer night with a Gueuze or a Lambic, and this is a great finisher. I am finally starting to understand the style.

Was able to sip some of this sharing with XLperro at Smokeless Joe's. Yeast and citrus but also acid aroma. Cloudy peach coloured. Not too acidic a lambic-geuze. Very tart aftertaste 28 hours later, which is not relatively bad. Cork, chlorine, apple, some malt.
