I was looking forward to trying this beer. I wanted to see if it was going to be worth it's price tag. Unfortunately it wasn't.

It poured a nice, light golden color with a big white head. The aroma was actually really nice and funky, but the taste did not match the aroma at all. There was almost no flavor, just a little bit of bitterness and a weak uneven mouthfeel.

I was drinking this with 6 other people and still most of it went down the drain.

Found this on a shelf at my local store. I wasn't even aware that this was being imported.

750ml bottle #488 of 1224. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a golden yellow color with 3+ fingers of a white soapy head that dissipates somewhat quickly to a thin coating. Body is lightly hazy with lots of visible champagne like carbonation.

Smell: Big white grape aromas followed by wet hay, some light barnyard funk, moderately strong cheesiness, and pear.

Taste: Similar to the aroma with lots of white grape and bright orchard fruits. Some funk and cheesiness is present as well, but not nearly as strong as in the aroma. There's a slight woodiness as well that comes out more in the finish. I'd consider this highly tart, more so than actually sour. This drinks more like a funky champagne than an actual lambic or gueuze.

Mouthfeel: Medium/light bodied with extremely high aggressive carbonation. Finishes very dry. Alcohol is barely detectable for an 8% beer.

Overall: If this is intended to be a lambic/champagne hybrid they succeeded. Really nice flavors and an extremely unique drinking experience. Can't say I've had anything like it before and I'm glad I got to try it.

This may be a gueze, but it drinks like a champagne. Extremely dry, effervescent carbonation, crystal clear straw golden hue. The smell is a little sulfuric and barnyard, but the taste is subtly funky, crisp, and light. This would be excellent with soft cheeses, to celebrate the New Year, or on your porch. It's a bit pricey for what it is and what you can get out of more affordable guezes, but I'm glad I tried it.

Pours into a tumbler glass with a charged head of airy merengue foam, racing champagne streamers, and a bright golden tone. Plenty of lace and a champagne like appearance.

Aroma was minerally at first, and gradually had some wet wood, hay and stable funk to it as it sat in the glass. Also an impression of ripening fruit, like the aromas in a produce market (thanks acme).

Tart and crisp, very dry with a moderate puckering sourness. Lemon, citric acid, mineral, drying oak woodiness. The champagne carbonation gives it a pleasant lightness. Somewhat of an improvement on the standard lambic, an interesting process, though I'm not sure it's worth a great premium.

Thanks to Elliott for sharing this one!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Looks more like a Champagne than a beer; golden liquid fizzes with a bit of carbonation

Smell: Really funky, almost cheesy

Taste: Barnyard funk, up front, with hints of stone fruit and lemon; overwhelming funkiness through and through

Mouthfeel: Medium body with effervescent carbonation

Overall: Not for beginners, this is a rare treat to see what a geuze can and should be

Another huge thank you to Jeffo for yet another awesome bottle. 909/1300

Appearance. Pours a hazy straw-gold with over 2 fingers of frothy white head.

Smell. Dry woody funk and hay, some lemon and maybe some light berries, and just a touch of sweet light malt.

Taste. Lots of that dry woody funk I smelled, some sour green apple and lemon, and again, a touch of sweet light malt to balance things out.

Mouthfeel. On the low side of medium bodied, below medium smooth and fine carbonation.

Overall. A fine gueuze. Different in its balance and (slightly) lower acidity compared with others.
