750 mL bottle poured into a Teku snifter. Bottle #1139/1300.

Appearance - Clear golden yellow. Nice white head. Big discrete bubbles in the collar. A few tiny islands on the surface.

Smell - Really lemony. Sharp acidic aroma. Hay, grassy, oaky. Not a ton of funk.

Taste - Sharp lemony sourness. Grainy. Seems like a wine flavor, but people are telling me I'm wrong. Hay and again minimal funk.

Mouthfeel - Highly carbonated. Medium sourness. Medium body.

Overall - Simple flavors. Not as complex as other gueuzes, but everything is very nice.

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!

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.

Thanks to foofaa for sharing this one.

Pours hazy golden yellow, big foamy white head, decent lacing. Smells of dirty basement funk, a bit of cheesy funk, some mild citric fruit, yogurt and some sawdust. Taste is quite similar to the nose but in differing amounts. It has more fruit than the nose and the funk is dialed back to a nice level. Crisp, spritzy feel keeps me coming back for more. A very nice gueuze. I enjoyed the regular gueuze and this was was a nice improvement, even if it wasn't overly needed one. Probably the best beer I have had from Beersel to date.

Thanks to FooFaa for sharing this brew. I had been curious about this one when I first learned about it but the pricetag and lack of reviews certainly makes for a hard blind purchase. Poured into a cervoise, the brew appears a clear pale yellow with a fizzy white bubbly head that is quick to dissolve. A swirl releases a finger of big bubbly white head back to the surface that again is quick to fade.

The aroma is funky and lemony lactic initially that gives way a bit to some minerally elements and carbonic quality. Some suggestions of yogurt and oak with an overall earthiness fills out the rest of the nose profile.

The taste is carbonic and mineraly like the nose suggested with a tart and herbal kick. There is a bit of hoppy to earthy bitterness present before blending into a lemony lactic and yogurt inclusion. This is pleasantly tart, clean and crisp finishing.

This is a light bodied brew with an effervescent and tingly amount of champagne-like prickly and fizzy carbonation but it works. It is pretty easily approachable and enjoyable with a real ease of drinkability. I just couldnt see myself drinking this even semi-regularly considering the price point. If offered, id certainly have it again though. Thanks Dan!

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
