From the bottle into correct glasssware at Cafe Rose Red in Bruges.

Pours an unclear yellowish orange with thick foam for the style.

Smell is quite mineral with some strong lemon notes and a hint of apple.

Taste is again pretty mineral and citrusy with a hint of salt. Mild acidity and a hint of bitterness on the finish, which is dry. One of the mildest Oude Gueuzes I've had.

Mouthfeel is thin with sparkling carbonation.

Overall, a mild and drinkable Gueuze, which would be an ideal introduction to the style.

21.08.2035 so likely a 2015 bottle. Big pop when opened. Large white head that eventually settles.

Very similar to Boon. Dry and carbonated like champagne. Lemon citrus in the background. Fairly funky and oaky. Minerals.

Very solid gueuze offering. Easy drinking. Well done.

375ml bottle into a tumbler appears clouded copper in color with a white cap.

Aroma is bright and lemony lactic with a touch of alcohol and earth.

Taste is tart, mineral laden and carbonic with almost a meaty feel mingled with alcohol. This tastes young, boozy and slightly off.

Medium in body with modest carbonation. Its decent but not worth seeking out.

750ml cork and cage. Served in a snifter glass. Pours a medium golden yellow body, one finger white head, good retention, not much lacing. Smell is barnyard, lemon peel, touch of citrus, light grainy cobweb, light vinegar. Flavour follows; nothing too complex but a little bit metallic; citrus, lemon peel, tart vinegar and a bit of hay. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, good carbonation, a bit of astringent metallic flavours on the finish. Not my favourite gueze, certainly. Wouldn't necessarily recommend, but not a bad beer.

Hazy golden color with white fluffy head. Aroma has a good amount of lambic funk, the more clean type with hay, barnyard and earthy notes. Taste starts quite sour and also the bitterness is pretty strong for a gueuze. Alcohol is also a bit too present for the style. Body is medium and the carbonation is on the high side. My favorite thing about this beer is the aroma but overall it's a pretty solid and complex gueuze.

Moriau Geuze '14 release

Pours a glowing, golden-orange color with a huge, soon collapsing head.

The whole room fills up with a tart funkiness, just after opening the bottle. Offers an incredible, intense lemon peel crispness, turning almost juicy above glue, leather and brine. Lemon gets calmed by moldy, slightly sweeter malts, while the brew remains remarkably fruity.

Has a higher, tartness supporting carbonation among a medium body.

Tastes right from the beginning of squeezed lemon, together with its stones, wrapped up by smooth, dusty, malts. The lemony, tart funkiness works it way down the tongue until it reaches the back end of the palate, providing a sour, fresh lemon infused peak. This gets accompanied by slightly metallic, bubbling carbonation and old candle wax, gently balanced by earth. It finishes almost smooth though, exhibiting the beers true greatness, it remains throughout pleasant, while it puts together a lot a subtle, harmonious, well balanced flavors. Offers a clean, short lasting dryness, still focusing on the lemon, revealing its stony qualities.

This beer features an incredible complex and well put together Gueuze, which has just the perfect amount of sweetness to it, to balance its luscious lemon impact. It also offers an incredible pleasant, almost smooth mouthfeel, while the beer remains refreshing, due to its distinct acidic sourness.
