L: pours bright amber with masses of bubbles rapidly rising from the bottom of the glass. Champagne-like carbonation kicks up a 1/2" white foam cap that dissappears almost as fast as it forms.

S: The nose has a wonderful funky barnyard aroma combined with fruit, over ripe fruit and old socks. Funky but not overpowering or harsh.

T:Very rich fruity palate with a fine balance between sweet and sour. The sweetness is just enough to keep the tartness from becoming puckering and helps accentuate the fruit flavors that suggest plum, berry and maybe gooseberry. Traces of diacetyl. Moderate and lemony tartness.

F: Medium light body, medium high carbonation.

O: pleasant and very drinkable.

.25 bottle. Kobbegem sign. Looks golden in the glass. Nice Aroma of grapes and sweet Fruit Juice. good taste sweet and sour. I can taste the spontanious yeast+sour fermentation style...But too much sugar added in my opinion. ..

25cl bottle. Clear amber pour with a thin white head. Tons of sugar, some cherry jam and a subtle metallic sensation. No kind of lambic funk detectable.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a dark clear honey amber with a this wispy head.

S - Aromas of almost sickly sweet caramel malts. Almost no tartness.

T - Taste is sweeter than the nose somehow, hardly any tartness, really lacking on all things gueuze.

M - Mouthfeel is very lightly carbonated, thin, watery .

O - Overall this was really underwhelming, incredibly sub par.

Serving Type: bottle

Picked up in Belgium when I was there a couple years ago, shared with rudzud.

Decent fizzy creamy head fades at a med pace, little lacing clear dark amber tan color.

Nose is bad, bbq sauce weird sugar see thing, fruity apricot jam, little earthy tobacco, acidic funk thing, bad off characters.

Taste super sweet again, fake sugar, candy bbq sauce tangy acidic, pineapple like apricot sugar jam acidic bbq sauce, acidity, messy oxidation even.

Mouth is med to thin bod, even light carb.

Deep amber with a meringue-type head. If only the aroma and taste were as nice as the head looked. Aroma is more cider-like than geuze, although there is some faint funk in it. The taste of apple juice along with mild carbonation makes it drink more like an apfelschorle than a geuze. While this is certainly easy to drink, given what the style demands, it's just too watery to recommend.
