Beer bootle (37,5cl/2006 vintage), tasted in 2008.
Appearance : Orange yellow color, without any foam head and sparkling ?
Smell : On the nose it is fruity (apple, pear, citrus, lemon)
Taste and mouthfeel : In the mouth it's sour. Bitter notes. Aftertaste is dry.
Drinkability : a very good beer, complex and refreshing in the traditional gueuze style.

Hazy orange appearance, you just know its going to be sour when you take your fisrt smell. Very stinky, earthy smell aswell. This had a very loooooong flavour, covered every part of your tongue, tremendoudly sour, tart acidity, one of my favourite gueuzes, lemony, grassy, earthy, dry, if your a fan of gueuze you must seek this out!!!!!!!

Bright orangy straw color, and fluffy white head. Lots of funk and wood on the nose. Tart, oak, and lemon on the palate, with a medium body mouthfeel. Great Geuze!

12.7 oz bottle dated Dec. 12, 2009 poured into a snifter

A- A light hazy gold/orange with one finger white head.

S- Tart lemons, spices, some fuck and a nice earthy smell.

T- Lemon tartness up front, getting hints of sour apples and other sour fruits in the middle. The finish has a funky bitterness, sour apples and lemons with an earthy/grass note. Very nice complexity.

M- Crisp, refreshing, smooth, slightly creamy.

D- Like other sours I am have had I would not like to drink a lot at once, but it is easy to drink and enjoy a bottle. I really like this beer, but feel it could be a little better if it was a little more sour and a little less funky.
