from Erzbierschof - quite clear amber beer with no foam; funky barnyard and cheesy aroma; fairly sour, good malt backbone, dry and long sourish aftertaste of barnyard, cheese and apples

fiery copper orange, thin white head drops quick, tepid. Soft citrus and cobweb nose, pale malt pillow, stinging citric acids throughout. Super pleasant palate, light acids, very young doughy, light cobweb. Very soft now, 1-2 yrs still.

cpetrone84 (1588) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Pour is golden amber with a small amount of tight white head. Nose is softer than some other 3F, light cob web, a touch of funk, tangerine and golden fruits. Everything seems a little soft and not as bright. Flavor is the same. A bit dusty, slightly malty, a touch sweet, tangerine behind, slightly sour. Lighter body, strong carb, dry finish. May need some time, just not as expressive as their other gueuze.

UXO (603) - CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Pours hazy deep golden orange with a thin skim of white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is slightly muted, complex, horseblankety funk, tart citrus, woody and leathery, tobacco. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate tart, mild salt. (9/10) Medium bodied, zero carbonation, dry tart finish. (4/5) A very good still gueuze. (“Doesjel" means “sleepy” - as in, it hasn’t been awoken by carbonation, geddit?) Because of the lack of carbonation, it comes across very similar to an unblended lambic, but this is in fact a blend of one, two, three, and four year-old lambics. (Really more like a tart uncarbonated white wine than most beers one could name.) The absence of carbonation means you can sip this for a long time, appreciating the changes in flavour as it warms and opens up. A lot of fun, and definitely worth trying for a sour aficionado, but not as good as the carbonated versions - I find the carbonation adds some texture and even some flavour, really livening it up and bringing it to the next level. (16/20)

rodenbach99 (3396) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Une bouteille 02/05/2013. Une drôle de bière plus près de la curiosité. Un robe orangé sans mousse. Un nez de sucre blond, légèrement gueuze. Une bouche qui ressemble à du ginger ale flat, elle n’a aucune texture. Manque d’acidité. Je ne comprends pas trop l’intérêt de cette bière, qu’est qu’une levure dormante ? Une cellule dormante !!

SlovakSniper (3576) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
Thx Kev! 02/05/2013. Orange. Sans mousse et sans bulles. Nez funky. Touche fruitée, citron doux, pointe de fromage. Bouche plus fade. Lambic et faro. Aucune note vibrante citrique. Très léger et même un peu sucré. Corps sans vie qui donne une impression de minceur. Finale courte, bien loin des notes poignantes habituellement liées au genre. Il y a quelque chose que je n’arrive pas à saisir ici.

CanIHave4Beers (3494) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle poured by myself, in a location remote of a buse.
Pours a lightly hazy blonde, and indeed still.

The aroma is very funky, lemony, with some pear and oak. Terribly pungent & fine smelling.

The flavor is modestly sour with some nice lemon rind some minerallity. It’s got a midl brininess and a well refined but fairly muted oak character.

So fun to see a sleepy Gueuze in such good shape.

Bottle. Clear golden pour. Smell is funk and leather. Taste follows with some fruit...maybe rhubarb. Nice clean finish. Awesome stuff!

Bottle shared by Tom - thanks! Golden pour with minimal head. Aroma is funk and leather. Some light fruit / wine character. Excellent.

Sparf (149) - Östersund, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2015
Äpplig citrusdoft med träfatstoner. Ljus bärnstensfärg och ett mycket litet skum. En lätt jordig citronkaraktär dominerar smaken. Välavvägd syra som liksom växer fram. Fint torr avslutning och eftersmak. Något för tunn kropp men annars en bra struktur. Totalt sett en helt okej men något menlös gueuze.
