Pours into a plain glass, a very pale and hazy yellow with a tremendous effervescence and a large, fluffy white head.

Smells pleasantly musty, with nodes of pepper and bright lemon, with some bready yeast becoming a bit more pronounced as the beer warms.

Tastes great: lively and complex. Tart yeast up front with lemon and cherries, a breadier and spicier middle, ending with black pepper and lingering lemon. Quite tart, even for the style, but never hard to drink. Also a very full flavor even while it's so drinkable. A wonderfully brewed beer.

375ml bottle of the 2014 vintage. Looks like I am in the minority as I just wasn;t impressed by this. Light yellow, clear. Aroma is tart and funky. Flavor is sour and one dimensional.I guess I am just not getting this one, especially in comparison to stuff like Girardin and 3F.

Great color and classic peppery sour aroma. Taste was fairly lemon tart and the finish lingered with a sour fruity malt taste.

I love sours, and I liked this beer but I don't think it's a great sour, and while not as expensive as many sours, it was $9 for 375 ml, so it's hard for me to give it a higher rating.

Again, I fail to become a devotee of the style... try as frequently as I still do.
I bought this because MJ "Great Beers of Belgium" focussed on the De Troch family's traditional brewing methods (read if you are a fan of the style.)
As for his review: "oaky, earthy, cellar notes in its from and palate, with a refreshing acidity in the palate and finish." I suppose I got all that, but not the "refreshing" part ... more like a very tight pucker, as the acidity was too sour for me (and others I shared with).
But if you like the traditional gueuze without the syrup/sweetener, then seek out De Troch's rendition.

Pours a perfect color. You can see the carbonation through the bubbles. It's not super carbed. There's a lot of that wash rind cheese funk, as you'd expect from a gueuze. Lots of lightly tart flavor with small amount of that cheese funk emanating through. The carb is actually really low, which kills the mouthfeel for me. It's a little thin too. Can't say I love it.
