Bottle from the supermarket. The beer has a nice pour, an amber body, with a tall head. The aroma is bittersweet, some lemon/grapefruit smells along with a light, juicy fruitiness. No sourness at all. Taste: citric components, a sharp, sweet malt some very hidden sourness, light fruits, and a bit of sugary sweetness. The finish is lightly sweet with some citric bitterness added. This beer made guezes popular among the mass consuming beer drinkers, but I will never have it again. Junk beer

"Gueuze Belle Vue". Bottle served into a Belle Vue glass at the Celtic Pub in Bruges. Reviewed from notes taken July 2010.

A: Pours a one finger head of soft thick wonderful cream and great retention. Body colour is a dark gold.

Sm: Sourness, minimal hopping, bacteria. A mild strength but intriguing aroma.

T: Sourness, but not overly so; it's well balanced alongside the full-bodied simple barley foundation. A bit simplistic for the style, but delicious. Great sour bacterial finish. Some yeast notes. Well built and balanced all around.

Mf: smooth and wet, complementing the flavours of the body. Carbonation and thickness are good.

Dr: Very drinkable for a sour, and of high quality. Well priced even at a bar (at least here in Bruges). I'd have it again.

B+

Poured into a cantillon glass. Smells a bit basic, with some low profile Brett and mustiness. The taste is obviously sweetened, which means this is probably pasteurized. Of the dumbed down gueuze I have tried, this isn't the worst by a long shot, however it is a far cry from the real stuff. I can appreciate what this is though, and if I think of it as a new style as opposed to the real thing it is is actually pretty good, and very drinkable. Interestingly, my wife loves it, and she doesn't like much else in the beer world. Very cheap in Belgium, and worth a try. At least it isn't trying to look traditional wi th a cork and all that.
