4.25/5  rDev -1.2%

Bottled Jan 2009. sampled late August 2014

Appearance- cork pushes itself out of bottle (bottle has been in fridge for several months, and was not jostled), beer is deep blonde and just shy of brilliant with a lovely glow. Huge head with poor retention and no lace

Aroma - fresh cracked malt, hey, lemon, honey, white grape, pepper, baby's breath, just faintest whiff of horse hide, acidity lightly prickles nostrils, very pretty beer. As always with the best Gueuze, very fresh and bright aroma despite age.

Flavor- stiffly malty with a rather simple flavor of lemon juice, with light fruity notes, rhubarb, vanilla, very mellow acidity, lightly herbal, very subtle and smooth, delicious

Mouthfeel- This is where this really stands out from other Geuze that I've had. Nearly medium bodied and luxuriously creamy. No sharpness to the acidity. High carbonation. Acid and possibly light tannin stimulates the salivary glands and glides off the back and sides of tounge Amazing.

Overall- artful. a joy to drink.

4.1/5  rDev -4.7%

750 ml bottle poured into a 33cl lambic tumbler. Bottled January 2009 (It's De Cam, so take that with a huge grain of salt)

Appearance: Pours a golden orange color with 1 finger of a soapy head that dissipates to a thin coating and collar. Body is hazy, but translucent with medium visible carbonation.

Smell: Barnyard funk, musty basement, lemon, green apple, earth, herbal and damp oak.

Taste: Lots of bretty funk, green apple, pear, some mineral and herbal character. Low/medium acidic sourness (definitely on the low end for a geuze)

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel and medium fine, lively carbonation. Finishes super dry.

Overall: Really good geuze. Similar funk to 3F only less sour. Worth picking up if you can find it. It's one of the better geuzes out there.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled January 2009.

Appearance - The cage came off without event, but the slightest pressure on the cork causes it to fly off and the beer begins to gush. Fills the glass with white foam. It settles quickly and leaves very little on the surface. The body is clear deep golden.

Smell - Lots of white pepper. Bright orange citrus. Hefty oak. A little bit of pale malt. Light acidity.

Taste - Sour up front, but drops off quickly. Drops off to oak and pepper. The malt lends a hint of sweetness and then becomes orangey. Strong oak lingers in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Very dry. The body drops off quickly. High carbonation.

Overall - Excellent without being all that dynamic. Missing some of the sour and malt characteristics that would allow this to transcend other gueuzes.
