krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2005
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 (4946) - 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.

daknole (8944) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 14, 2010
LCBS 2010. 1979 bottle from marc. What an odd beer. Aroma is sweet and fruity with some very light funky notes. Flavor is sweet, almost tastes like splenda or something...odd. Some creaminess and light yeastiness. Not sure what to make of this one to be honest.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2013
#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 (13833) - 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 (533) - 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

Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Luxembourg. A darkish looking Lambic. Sharpish with a bit of zing but nothing to cause any puckering! Slightly fruity. Nice crisp finish.

A popular gueuze that is not much like what a serious gueuze drinker would expect. Nice though, if you think outside of that box.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2011
Nice hazy golden coloured body with a thick, dense white head and a nice bit of movement. Aroma of super potent and sour grapes and yeast, a touch of wheat and a very nice kick. Medium to Light-bodied; Mild yeast and wheat flavour with a kick of the sour grape and yeast notes and a very mild finish only with a bit of the sour flavours. Aftertaste is nice - only the sour notes and a very small hint of sweetness at the end. Overall, a great beer - especially given its availability and cheapness (less than one €). I sampled this 25 cL bottle purchased from La Bier Temepl in Bruxelles, Belgium on 02-January-2011 sampled on a train from Bruxelles to Amsterdam on 02-January-2011.
