keanex (1431) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2014
2010 versions, batch 2285, best before 2033.
Appearance: Hazy sunburst body with a tall and dense white head that quickly simmers down to a mostly opaque coating.
Aroma: Tart aroma of green apple with accompanying hay and a bright fruitiness that resembles cherry. The aroma is present with complexity, enjoyable and fun to pick things from.
Taste: Semi-sweet of a sort of peach/apricot fruitiness that leads to a mild astringency and tartness. The finish is dry and slightly leathery with a hay presence. The finish is quick with a very soft lingering tartness. Very nice!
Palate: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a nicely done geuze. I love the mild sweetness that interplays with the tart/dryness by the finish. The finish has a hint of soapiness/rubber eraser presence, but it doesn’t fully distract from the flavor. Solid.

Rich golden color. Smells a little funky but expected for style. Very tart up front and it lingers in after taste. Great sour beer!

MichaelAwesome (3919) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2014
Welch eine feine Hochzeit ! Ausgewogene Perlung, eine momentane Säure und viel an fruchtigen Aromen. Die Nase offeriert etwas Buttersäure, saure Früchte und etwas Brot. Im Geschmack prickelnd und knackig. Einfach ausgewogen großartig.

McTapps (3920) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a beautiful deep amber colour with a crispy-smooth body at the same. Wonderful aroma of geuze - just very nice sour and like green berries. Taste of green berries, very mild vinegar, unripe peaches and nectarines. Wonderful geuze. Perfect and so smooth to drink with a perfect balanced taste and palate. Loved it. Could drink anytime a second of this.

Lukasmh (100) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy orange, medium to light white head. Aroma is acid apples, some stable, brett. Some citrusy notes too. Taste is medium sweet for the style, sour, spicy. Dry long finish. Nice carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boxofrane (2093) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours hazy gold with a small white head that quickly dissipates. The aroma has a slight tartness, a bit of a lemon note. The taste is fairly tart, a bit of vinegar, a really funky brew. Maybe not a top in the style but a pretty damn good beer.

Dark cellar like tartness with some stable in the aroma. Hazy orange with white head. Nice fruitlike sourness, like lemonade. It is pretty sour but the sweetness from the malt balances it well. Medium body, lively carbonation dry. very nice Geuze, I really like the refreshing lemonade like taste

circinus (209) - SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle 37.5 cl from the Internets, 2010 vintage. Lovely hazy orange with a white head. Green apples, cherries, tart. Quite sour, very fruity, lemon/lemonade, apricots?. Medium body, lively carbonation makes it feel lighter in the body, very broad nice palate, covers the whole mouth in flavours, dry tart finish. Very nice, I like that it has so many different and broad flavours.
