Beerconnaiseur (73) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2014
Old 75cl bottle from over 25 years old - served in the original and equally old glass. Cellar aged and extremely rare! A gusp of CO2 escapes on opening : a good sign. Pours a slightly murky amber with small fluffy head. Woody aromas with barnyears, grass and little hints of cork (ofcourse, all these years been lying flat in the cellar). The sour lambic taste is corkless though! Balanced sour character accompanied by a full melasse sugar body with aftertastes of passion fruit and cedar. Amazing! In no way comparable with the younger Belle-vue gueuzes! This one is a gem!

__Rb81 (177) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear orange amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet sour, fruity with apricot and orange. Taste is sweet sour, fruity, vinous, wood with a sour aftertaste. Not too bad.

Alengrin (1254) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2014 Classic ’capsulekensgeuze’, the fake geuze imitations which almost wiped out the traditional ’old’ geuzes. Thin, off-white, irregular head, colour a deep orangey blonde, almost amber, cristal clear with gentle sparkling. Aroma of vanilla, melon, marzipan, biscuit, lemon juice, butter, orange peel, sorrel, cookies, minerals and the typical ’dead’, cooked smell of a pasteurized ale. Taste a soft sweetishness in onset, citrus, apple, strong carbonation, smooth and thinnish mouthfeel, buttery and caramelly, accompanied by a mild lemony acidity that gets a bit stronger towards the end, with a drying effect; finish also with a faint hint of grassy hops, quickly fading away. Lambic character is subdued, this beer clearly consists mainly of top-fermented ale. It is a matter of politics that this type of sweetened, diluted, pasteurized products is still allowed to be called ’geuze’ in Belgium as it is far away from ’the real thing’ and I honestly hope that one day, AB InBev and other producers of it will be forced to apply another name to it, even if it were only ’industrial geuze’ or ’pasteurized geuze’ or something like that.

Als je het flesje zou zien zou je het niet denken maar dit is een van de beste gueuzes dat ik ooit gedronken heb. Topper

MonsterMagnet (182) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Vanilla fudge, grapes. Light sweet and bitter, medium sour. I’m not yet familiar with the style, and found this quite ok.

tricksta_p (1041) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2014
Aroma of fruits, sugar, light tart fruit. Flavour is more sweet than sour, very disappointing, artificial candy. This has little to do with Gueuze and I find it offensive that this beer carries that name.

HenrikSoegaard (10479) - Randers, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Creamy White good mostly lasting head. Amber colour. Llight malty and hoppy sour aroma. Lactose dominating. Light bitter lactoacetic flavor. Average light bitter finish. oily palate.

jaghana (3819) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle 25cl, Nose is on toasted vanilla !? A quite sweet lambic with kind of caramel, low sourness, light brett touch, background astringency. Not outstanding.

Icedwarf (301) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Donker geel leverdig bier met schuim. Smaak is zuur en droog, hooi, citrus en banaan. Blijft helaas niet lang hangen, heb betere Gueze gehad.

olsvammel (3030) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Fruity, buttery and nutty smell. Sweet taste with some ripe fruit, nuts and butterscotch. Not sure wh they label this as a gueuze as it tastes nothing like it. The butter (diacetyl?) is not to my liking.
