3.93/5 rDev +8.6%
Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice white head that dies down somewhat fast and leaves very little lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of tart green apples, citrus, and some Brett funks.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sour apples upfront, tart lemon, some peaches and Brett funks.
Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Bottle shared by Sammy, 750ml into a tulip.
Orangey yellow, slightly unfiltered with no head or lacing. Nose has light lemon notes, tennis balls and a sharp acidity. Taste has harsh acetic notes, some peach and lemony fruit notes. Not too much funk, but rather straight sourness. A bit of sweetness comes in mid-late palate to mildly offset the acidic and cidery notes. Medium feel, low carbonation and medium high acidity, which becomes less prominent as I moved through the glass. Decent, but not all that memorable in terms of a gueuze.

My bottle, from a past Quebec trip. Big cider geuze wafting aroma. Peachy look with lace. Sharp cider cahracteristic, finishing with sugar. No off flavour.Its somewhat Like a cyser, and at this level of ageing, understated carbonation. Better than expected with good drinkability.

Back with a 2006 edition, (and allegedly less alchohol) Schoune brings us another Gueuze to try. I Bought a couple of these on a recent Quebec trip. I figured if it was good I'd enjoy it, and if it was bad, I'd finally know what a bad or mediocre gueuze is like.
A: Pours a straw cloudy color with no head or lacing of any kind. Quite still as well. No bubbles seen climbing out of my Tripel Karmeliet tulip.
S: My relieved first thought was "well, it smells like a gueuze!". Quite par for the course, but definitely appealing, and became more so as the beer warmed up.
T: As the beer warms this keeps getting better and better. It does however have a quite juicy and sweet middle. Lots of honey and apple. Quite funkified finish. Not too sour but certainly sour enough to please the gueuze heads out there.
M: This does have a sort of sweetness you probably wouldn't find in a Belgian gueuze, Its almost like a Faro... However the finish is adequately tart. Carbonation is a little on the low side.
Overall I'm pleased with this bottle of beer, the only gueuze made in Quebec and (I might be wrong) the only one in Canada! I didn't get the chance to try the 2005, but based on the mixed reviews, it seems like Schoune has done a better job with this one, I hope they continue to brew it as I will continue to buy it. How about some Ontario Distribution?
