750mL corked green bottle coded L BL22PGC poured into a pint glass at fridge temp, no ABV listed on label. The beer pours barely hazy golden amber in color with fizzy nearly white head. The head disappears leaving only a few tiny bubbles and no lacing. The aroma is musty and a little fruity. The taste is SOUR, and musty like at old hay barn. The mouthfeel is very thin bodied and highly carbonated. No bitterness, no alcohol with a bone dry finish. Overall, fits the style, which I find extremely unpleasant. Belgian Gueuze ticked, barely.

Pours a clear, pale golden amber coloration with a medium, frothy head. Smells of citrus acidity, green apple and barnyard funk, with a certain earthy/woody note as well. Taste is dominated by zesty, acidic citrus notes of grapefruit and lime peel and a strong earthy/woody oak presence, as well as ligher notes of tart green apple and quince, along with a good amount of barnyard funk with a mild blue cheese note. Finishes tart and funky, with some citric acidity lingering in the aftertaste. Effervescent mouthfeel with a medium body and lively carbonation. A great Geuze that is just just fantastic value for money, but still very good on its own. Not that complex, but very nicely balanced, with a good amount of tartness and funk.

Nice yellow gold color with around a medium body. Carbonation is just above average and has an almost champagne like quality ti it. Overall a nice feel to this beer
Aroma is green apples, yeast, and a tart/ funk/ sour mix with all of it being about equal.
Taste really follows the aroma, comes off a bit dry in a pleasant way. Again the taste has in equal parts that sour, funk, green apple tartness.
This is an exceptional beer that would work great with cheese and fruit or to accompany a rich meal

Poured hazy golden honey with a small head that never fully dissapated and left little lacing.

Aroma is that of funky apples, pears, and grapes. Full and tart, anticipating some slightly sour funk.

Taste is exactly what the aroma suggested - tart, funky, and delicious.

Feel is terrific medium-light with great carbonation.

Overall, this is a lovely geuze. Great example of the style without the normal steep price tag. Recommended for sure.

Pouring from a 12.7 oz. bottle into a wine glass. 2014 bottle. Pours out an amazing clear golden color. Look somewhat like apple juice with a off white thick and well retained crown. The smell is funky and tart. Has notes of apple, pear, peaches and even some pineapple. The taste is a mirror image of the nose and the mouthfeel is very tart and acidic leaving you pucker up. Overall, this is very refreshing and I love the amount of sour it brings.

Very good all around. Tart but not overly sour. Crisp flavors. Excellent look and smell. Based on bottle code (google will lead you to how to decode it) it was bottled Feb 19, 2016, so had a good amount of age on it. Definitely worth trying and revisiting occasionally.

Fantastic example of the style. Sour, dry, yet fantastically drinkable. A perfect blend of flavors on the palate. Definitely suggest trying a bottle.
