laiti (4945) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2014
75 cl bottle @ Kaisla. Bottled 26.03.2010, BBE 03/2020
Aroma is leathery with farmhouse aromas and grapefruit. Flavour is really tart with lots of grapefruit, some rowanberries and distant lactic notes. Foamy palate. Excellent, although the lactic notes try to ruin the show. Lente is slightly better.

BoBoChamp (5111) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 75cl, new exclusive brew Anno 2011, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex sour brew, woody (more soft than the Lente; obvious notes of vanilla) and slightly fruity/bitter, yet easy to drink, very balanced, hazy, good head, very good Summer brew, yet very expensive!

brokensail (9935) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 28, 2011
A: The beer pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a tall white head. S: Funk and grass, two of the trademarks of Drie Fonteinen gueuze, start this one off. Lots of lemon zest and lemon juice tartness to go with a rather musty funk and some green apple. T: Lots of grass, lemon zest, and green apple tartness to this. A rather barnyardy funk, plenty of must and earth to it, too. There is a light grape and peach flavor on the finish with a sharp acidity. M: Medium bodied with a medium to high carbonation. O: Definitely a good gueuze. As with Lente, however, not sure it’s worth the additional cost.

Oakes (11798) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2011
Amber, cloudy. Thin, weak-looking head. Very cheesy, horsey aroma. Dusty. Smells like grandpa’s basement. Fizzy. Very tart with lactic, light brett. A breezy character, like some lambics have. Pretty assertive gueuze.

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2011
0.75l bottle @ RBNAG11. Pours a hazy orange body with a medium sidesticking and lightly lacing white head. Aroma is light sour, branches, lemon-sourness, perhaps some fruity strawberriey tones. Aggressive carbonation level and a fizzing-oily mouthfeel. Lemon-sour flavors, brett, wood, ends really dry and delicious. Thank’s for sharing!

Hoprider (77) - DENMARK - JAN 17, 2012
Very few coments here but this is what I got: in comparison with the ’Lente’ this is much more on yeasty, brett flavors and less on citrus and passionfruit. Also more lively and a little less creamy in mouthfeel, making the ’Lente’ a little more enjoyable for me. This is still a textbook geuze in my opinion.
