Looks dark orange to amber, nice foamy head, sticking to the glass.
Smells like sweet and sour cherries, hay, low barrel notes. Like a gueuze, but sweeter.
Very sweet fruitiness, like an apple/pear cider. Lots of green grapes, but not as musty as expected. Not a huge tartness also, taste is of sweet (rather than sour) cherries. Citrus is sweet also, with a bit of zestiness. The malts are light and pale. Some tasty spiciness. Green grass, hay, barnyard notes that you can find in a saison mostly. Woody notes also from the barrel, but pretty low(ish). Low bitter finish.
Fizzy in the beginning, but it gets quite creamy as it sits.
Not the type of gueuze that i like, but not a horrible beer either. I guess it's a good introductory one into the style.

Appearance: Clear, orange body with a small head

An old bottle brought home from first trip to Belgium in 2010. I believe it is stamped with a BB date of July 2, 2012.

Poured into a chalice this gueuze is clear light amber, little head with nice lacing. Aromas of weak wild microbial funk, white wine ish with apple fruitiness. Taste is very mild, more like a juice than a sour funky gueuze. Easy drinking but not very exciting, low to medium carbonation, weak bodied. Overall a cheapy.

Drank from my Cantillon Geuze glass

A - Pours a darkish golden colour with a white head that reduces to a film.

S - Bits of funk and cut grass.

T - Sweet up front and through the entire taste. It draws into a slightly sour finish but sugars are still dominant. Bits of oak, white wine and apple present

M - Light to medium body with medium carbonation.

O - Never had a geuze like this before. Reminds me of a Faro for its sweetness. I prefer the sour varieties of this type of beer
