look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 375ml (best by 20-04-2026) bottle into a cantillon gueuze glass. Poured a clear golden yellow color with champagne like carbonation. The cork popped of with great pressure and the head foamed up then dissapated a minute later. The smell is musty earth tones not what I would call barnyard and some lemon scents. The taste is very light on the sourness compared to most others gueuzes with more lemon zest and slight acidic aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light body with a perfect carbonation level. This is a very drinkable gueuze and would be a great beginner gueuze to introduce someone without giving them the overpowering funk that might turn off a first time taster. But for me that barnyard funk, that bile is what I yearn for in a gueuze.

3.91/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
375ml bottle poured into an Omer Blond tulip glass. Best before 2034.
A: Pours a rocky and huge three fingers of sudsy off white head. Light gold/orange body with a steady stream of bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass. Head retention for days.
S: Up front an almost toasted oak note before jumping into all sorts of funky farmhouse, burned rubber/mineral, stinky cheese, lemon juice and over ripened fruit smells.
T: Oaky start before leading into apple vinegar, rotting fruit, horse blanket, a heavy lactic acid and an lemon juice sourness. There's a unique mineral and bitter character that sticks out as well. Nice wheat cracker finish.
Mf: Light body with a very prickly carbonation that really brings out the acidity in the beer. Once you adjust thought it's highly drinkable and even thirst quenching.
Overall: A great interpretation of an authentic geuze. Lots of weird funky and sour flavors that set it apart from the American sour ales. Recommended and easy to find.
