Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2006

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2006
Tried at Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation 27/05/06. Pale golden, clear, body with a big beaded white head - almost looked like a lager. Sour and funky aroma. Very nice acid making this tart and dry.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle (375ml). Hazy amber-gold, average white head. Lovely funky-sour yeast and sour citrus aroma, oh yeah! Taste starts a little mellow, then the citrus pucker hits, with wood and lactic notes trying to complete with the wooly, sweaty wet-dog funk, but it evens out and there’s a nice maltiness and fruitiness - it’s sort of simple, but goes down smooth. Decent lambic body, very lively and acidic, longish finish but no aftertaste - really nice, easy to drink.

bhensonb (11534) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 3, 2006
The aroma is not really sour, just a hint. Something of green apple. Slightly hazy golden amber color with a small bubble white head and tiny champagne bubbles in the body. Puckerish impact, very astringent. Definitely not one of those sour Flemish ales. It has the cidery winey aspects of a traditional geuze. My numerical rating is based on geuze rather than on non-lambic based ale. All in all this may be the best geuze I’ve had. The perfect marriage indeed.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2006
Bottled. Hazy nutbrown colour, not much head, but a bit white foam. Very sour aroma and flavour. My first thought when having this was that unless knowing what I drink I would have guessed for a Cantillon. Very pleasant, refreshing and smooth lambic.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2014 First rating
Initial Rating Date: 8/27/2006
Bottle at Delirium Cafe in Gothenburg.
Shady brown color, small white head. Very sour scent. And also very sour taste. No bitterness at all! But still for someone like me that really likes the sour ones, it’s great.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - AUG 17, 2006
This gueze is strictly, IMO, just a beginners gueze. Not to say it’s not enjoyable because it is but when I think of a proper gueuze I think of old leather, funk, cheese, barnyard and this didn’t really carry any of those characteristics. Aroma was vinegar, acidic and slightly moldy. Appearance was a murky, goldish/orange color. Mouthfeel was mild somehow, medium-bodied at best. Flavors were drinkable with apples, champagne, and slightly lemony with none of the trademark kick-you-in-the-nuts tartness/bitterness I’ve come to expect. It was mildly tart, so it gets an average rating. Overall, a decent beer to start someone off sampling a gueuze, but far, far from being the top dog.

[Bottle] Amber coloured with a small head. Sourish aroma of green apples. Well balanced acidic apple and rhubarb flavour. Some sweetness in the background.
