375mL (bottled 10/6/2011) into a tulip. Pours a clear coppery golden color w/ a big fluffy white head, vigorous carbonation.

Aroma is funky and vaguely sour, almost saison-like. Earthy, spicy, a little musty.

Taste is sharply acidic up front, lemony with an underlying sweetness, and then more sour on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied w/ a semi-dry finish. A little prickly from the carbonation.

Overall a pretty solid version of the style and certainly a good introduction, but better ones are readily available.

Bottled: 09 NOV 2012

Fairly clear gold with some random flaky bits floating around, topped by a thin, wispy head. Smells a bit grassy and earthy, like wet hay and flower petals, along with barnyard, mustiness, spice, and some dry wood. Tart, earthy flavors - not extremely sour or acidic. Floral, dusty lemons, and mineral notes. Very crisp, dry, light, and fluffy mouthfeel with a refreshing puckering quality. This is good and certainly has all the right elements for a Gueuze, though no standout characteristics. For the price, laying a couple bottles away to have a few years down the road is a no-brainer.

A:
Bright Glowey gold colored with a small white head. Not a lot of retention and once the head fades you never see it again. Very pretty color though.
S:
Fermented tangy juicy fruits-cherries-oranges-apples-lemon-raspberry and light cereal grains. Very fun, sunny, and stinky.
T:
Flavor is tangy and refreshing. Earthy, fruity, funky and appealing. Fermentd black cherry and light tingly even bitterness.
M:
Very swirlable in the mouth. Perfect super fine carbonation bubbles.
O:
Very nice.

37,5 cl poured into a lindemans glass

A - a clear bright pale orange with a small white head of foam. Dissipated rather quickly.

S - lots if acidity at first. A bit of barnyardy funk. Slight sweet bready malts. A little bit buttery.

T - very similar to the nose with bright acidity and a very slight malt sweetness. Some green apple character in the middle. Some funkyness toward the end. Dry and tart finish.

M - medium bodied. Very crisp with bright carbonation.

O - I just wasn't crazy about that little funk bit in the end but otherwise a very refreshing beer for a sticky summer eve.

We have a golden, hazy beer, with a creamy, white neck. The aroma and taste bring oranges and grapefruit, with a touch of pepper, other floral and fruit (pear) esters, and expressive "barnyard" notes caused by wild yeast. The tartness is vibrant, present in the aroma, and dominant in the palate. The body is light, and its acidity balances so well with the fruitness and structure of this beer. The Gueuzes are refreshing and wonderful Belgian beers that amaze me in each experience. The Cuvée Rene is simply fantastic.

Poured a gorgeous cloudy orange with a half-finger white head. There was no lacing on the glass, but it's quite the good looking beer. Scents of brett/barnyard funk, lemon, sour apple and slight sweet notes. Flavor is incredibly sour, with notes of lemon, sour apple, and slight vinegar. Very dry. Mouthfeel is light bodied, with moderate carbonation. This is a very good beer. It's tart, dry and refreshing. It's also not for everyone. It's incredibly sour natureis fitting only for those of us who like things sour. But with a palette that enjoys those flavors you'll find it excellent.
