Served in a snifter glass from the bottle.

Appearance: Semi cloudy amber with medium bubbles and white head rising thin roughly quarter of an inch.

Smell: Yeasty scent with deep lemon feel hitting the nostrils.

Taste: Sour brew, might be the only sour tasting brew I love. Palate cleansing lemon and grapefruit and deep notes of yeast.

Mouth: Medium body. Sticky brew with medium to heavy body.

Overall: Good brew, took me by surprise and nice to have a balanced beer in between tastings. Strong taste without hitting you in the head. Salud!

Slightly skunked bottle bought in Glasgow. Reminds me a lot of gueuze tilquin -- a bit too hoppy for my tastes, especially after two years in the bottle. Nice level of tartness. Very pricey

72/100

A great Geuze.Hoppier than other Belgian counterparts with more accented herbal & grassy notes.
I might prefer this over Cantillon's Geuze.

Popped the cork on a 2016. 2 years on it. Pours a copper to orange, hazy with a thin bright white soapy head. Nose of floral, wood, peaches and grass. Taste is a whirlwind of flavor. Fruits like apricots, peaches, melon on lemons mingle with a damp funky earthiness. Notes of wet grass, hay and moss. Huge oak character that adds to the beers dryness. Funk and yogurt play well and the acidity level is perfect. Super dry, crisp and tart finish. It’s delicious.

Still roughly new to geuzes but found this to be quite enjoyable at a year past bottling with funky flavors of oak, sourness, lemon, apricots, pears, floral hops, earthy, and wood.
