One of the worst commerical examples of a Gueueze,but even in the grungiest of Belgian Cafes,you can be sure that they atleast have this when you are about to order some mussles.

Sweeter than I’d want out of the style, but the ’old books’ mustiness is nice.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2004 This one was Gueuze La Bécasse (Truth to tell, I cheated a little. This old sample has not only a different (earlier) label, it was still named slightly different - Gueuze lambic de la Becasse . Mind you, ten years ago the original Brabrux was closed already - maybe still from De Neve...) No head; dark foxy-golden, like liquid honey. Nose of sugar syrup, touch woody, but before anything, very fruity. I must confess it has a certain Sauternes-like aroma; grapes with the "noble putrefaction". Maybe also like "Muscat de Samos"; bit liquorice too. Woody, taste much less sweet & fruity than the nose. Liqueurish still, bit of "madeirisation", rather again more like a grape liqueur than port or madeira. Something burnt in the finish. slick, oily mouthfeel, viscuous, higher alcohols? This has turned out rathergood. It has, unfortunately, nothing to do with gueuze. Very sweet. Real rating for Geuze Belle Vue; 7/4/6/1/12/ 3.0 Hazy amber; thick creamy head, collapsing and very lacy. Very fruity and woody nose. Not "horseblanket" but something very similar, both sweeter and more winelike. Taste is both sweet and tart. Nothing sour. Very woody in character, vaguely almondy. Demi-sec winish character keeps very outspoken. Also wet wool? Creamy mouthfeel. In the aftertaste, everything goes wrong. The character gets outspoken artificially sweet and "forced". This isn’t gueuze. I’ve tasted American pseudo-gueuze that comes nearer the real thing. But until the abysmal finish, this is a decent beer in its own right. It reminds me (well, well, well...) of some old-time mixtures of spontaneous & top fermenting beers (Jack-Op from Wolvertem, Knal from Halle...)

as an inveterate non-appreciator of gueuze, i found this charming. with just a bit of sweetness, it is to me more like a not-very-malty flemish sour. the lightly clouded liquid is the color of my old wallet, with a nearly orange sheen to a well-worn leather brown. the head was an unremarkable wispy gasket of biege whose idea of lace was a battered battle flag of thready tatters. the aroma was an intriguing estuary of sour apple and orange, dusty drying wheat, and just a faint upper octave harmony of cellar mildew. i liked the sour dough, citrus and apple, and, although the feel is watery and the carbonation fails, the slight sweetness offsets the cranberry and pump handle tartness. i know it’s just a weenie entry level lambic with training wheels , but i’m so pleased that i like it that i may just buy the very next bottle of rene cuvee that i can find.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2007
0.375 l bottle, 5.5 %. Copper-peachy color with creamy head. Sweet, refreshing, slightly acidic and woody aroma with notes of vanilla, lemon, ginger and cola. The same elements are present in the taste along with cristmas cookie like spiciness. Quite original spiced (reads also in the label) lambic.

#127 Eine Flasche, die geöffnet wird wie ne Pulle Krimsekt, mit Korken! Die Farbe eines Altbieres, nur mit viel mehr Schaum, der kleinporig und fleißig am Glasrand emporkrabbelt...schön! In der Nase ist eine sektähnliche Säuerlichkeit mit feinen Holzaromen, superb! Im Geschmack erinnert dieses Bier (!) an ein Cidre. Säuerliche Fruchtigkeit nach Äpfeln mit feinen Holznoten dank der Reifung in Eichenholzfässern. Ich habe mein Bier zu Silvester gefunden! Kurioses Bier, aber gelungen!

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2013
I am not an expert in gueuze beers but I enjoyed this. A nice coppery colour with a thick white head. Rich aroma with toffee, banana and sweet malt. Thinish mouth-feel tending towards a pleasing frothiness. Refreshing taste, with gentle ’off’ notes tempered by sweet and dry biscuit.

saxo (14151) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle from Bier Tempel. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are stable, brett, malt, leather and hops. Quite mild gueuze and not very sour at all. A good beginners gueuze.

AtronSeige (676) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 18, 2014
Aroma: Light sourness, light barnyard, lemon, Appearance: Brilliant burnt gold body. small off-white head. lacing. Flavour: High sourness that quickly fades, bready, lemon, Palate: light body. High, soft carbonation. Overall: I was expecting a bit more of the wild yeast character, but this is a very nice beer. I might not drink many glasses, but I can see this as a great palate cleaner between meals. 250 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 17E. Gueuze

Świetne piwo na upalne dni. Orzeźwia i zaskakuje swoją delikatną kwaśnością. Pełny smak z cytusowymi akcentami. Po nalaniu do szklanki piana towarzyszy do samego końca. Polecam.
