Orange colour with a quickly disappearing head. Sour and metallic nose with some sweetness. Dry, citric, quite heavy carbonation. Too metallic for my tastes.

On tap (handpump I believe) at PP Carlsbad. Really cool to get this outside of the bottle. Aroma was really nice. Funk, must, yeast, with a hint of vinegar. Flavor was pretty bready, funky, but not as funky as the aroma, yeast with hints of fruit. Not overly funky. Extremely drinkable. Good stuff.

Bottle shared by Tom. Thanks dude. 2003 bottle. I’ve had this 2-3 times now and I must say its a little disappointing. Its not really that funky, or funky in a way that I like. Its more of that cobweb, basement, and band-aid funk and less of that vinegar, cheese, and sourness. Drinkable, but there are many gueuzes I prefer.

Essa foi minha primeira Gueuze, o que cercou o momento de expectativa e apreensão, uma vez que li que o estilo apresenta características diferenciadas, como azedume excessivo e gosto de couro, entre outros. A aparência no copo não apresentou nada de mais. Uma espuma volumoesa e esbranquiçada, com excelente formação de colarinho em seu corpo levemente turvo e amarelo-médio. No aroma, uma explosão de sabores me mostraram o porque a fama desse estilo ancião de cerveja. Farejei a presença cítrica de laranja, queijo (com fungos), uva branca, vinho branco e vinagre de maçã. Seu corpo é leve e ralo, de carbonatação borbulhante e final adstringente. No paladar, pesada acidez, leve amargor e toques salgados, com final de longa duração. Percebi também leve azedume no gosto, com textura de um bom espumante (o gosto também lembra, apesar dos toques salgados) e sabor de uva branca e maçã bem ácida. Um perfeito balanço entre os elementos - muito melhor do que a encomenda.

375ml bottle $9.49 at liquormax in Loveland. Hazy golden-orange color with a quite frothy white head. It smells like citrus and very briefly like manure. The taste is band-aid and rotting citrus fruit with mold. This wasn’t a bad beer but it wasn’t my cup of tea as far as gueuze goes. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-11-2009 21:20:39

Bottle, 2003. Look: Dirty golden. White head. Smell: Dirty. Somewhat sweeter then i’ve imagined, I definetely get vineager though, but also citrus cookies. Flowery. Taste: Not as sour as one would think. Serious tartness. Vineager. Also fruit, apple/pear. Bitter aftertaste. Some alcohol.

Alphadelic (2164) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2009
An amber coloured beer with a big, fizzy head. Bitter cherries and rosy apples on the nose. Tingly and delicate in the mouth. Sour and rosy. Flowery crab apples. A lovely little number heavy sherbert leanings.

Thanks to whoever graciously shared this at the beerinator tasting! Vintage 2003. Hazy gold pour fluffy white head and drippy lace. Light tart aroma. Leather, lemon, and sour apple. Dry but not too tart

TaxiDriver (1732) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2009
Bottle. The smell is well balanced, sour with a litlle bit of a hidden sweetness, quite strong yeasty. The medium large white foamy head stays very long, the body is orange and cloudy. The taste is very dry and bitter. The texture is very dry without much carbonation and a medium strong body. A very nice Geuze!

Bottle at DØE gnf 2009. Vintage 2004. Clear golden with a white head, Aroma heavy sour. Flavor heavy sour, like vinegar. I didn’t find notes of anything. Light body, heavy carbonated. I really didn’t like it that afternoon.
