   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2014 Acquired in a trade with 77Ships and we opened this in Belgium so others can rate it as well. This is a new Gueuze from a place in Netherlands. It is rateable but there was no official label yet.

A – HUGE gusher. we could have lost half the bottle if we weren’t careful. . very bubbly huge bubbles head. cloudy beer with a bright orange appearance Looks like every other young Gueuze blend.

S – The nose is nice. Lots of lemon, some banana, grape skins and white wine notes. It smells really good.

T – The taste is okay. It’s quite sweet, has a copper penny metallic note. Oily without much of a body but maybe it just needs more time in the bottle to balance out? Sweet lemon,lime finish with tart acidity like from a kiwi w/ skin.

M – Thin mouth feel and not bursting with carbonation.

O – It’s a nice Gueuze but I’d wait a few years if you have a bottle. Might need more time. Open one now, cellar the other for 2 years.
