Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle, 37,5 cl. Hazy amber colour with a small white head. Nice funky lambic aroma with grape fruits and I imagine a tone of coffee too. Acidic flavour with apples and other sour fruits. No hints of alcohol.

Tmoney99 (11463) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle at Dilly Deli. Poured a pale amber color with a average fizzy head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Yeasty champagne aroma. Light body with lively carbonation. Light complex bitter flavor with a light sour finish of short duration. Very intersting brew, but not my style.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from Uto beer - Golden yellow with a thin white head. Sort of a grassy barnyard aroma. Combination of lemon lime and vinegar in taste. Tart with a long salty bitter finish. Not bad but not my gueuse of choice.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2007
Honey colored with a light head. not a lot of lacing. Tart aroma of slight apples. Grassy and a bit mouldy. The aroma is bitter and a touch hot. There is a large tart precense and a bit more of that funk. The palate is late and the finish, like the last one makes the jaw clench up with its tartness. Good.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 26, 2007
Bottle: Clear light gold color, light white head and lacing. Smells of light hay, the dust that falls off a barn while you’re cleaning the rafters, a blue cheese left out on the coutner at night. Lightly charred pine and grapefruit peel. The flavor isn’t as tart as I’d like, but it’s a got a light buttery impact with a spritsy citric mouthfeel. Finishes primariliy with the wood taste. Decent gueuze.

IrishBoy (3908) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Bottle from Ledgers; nose is slightly sour with some faro-like sweetness intermingled; slightly hazed gold with a small off-white head; flavor is tart with some horsebalnket in the finish.

leaparsons (8576) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2006
Bottle. Golden with a small white head. Aromas are acidic and musty with brown sugar. Some cheesines and tart lemon. Flavours are dry, dusty and musty with grapefruit bitterness. Quite tart with a dry finish. Very nice.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Pours wtih a golden body topped by a thin head with some lacing. It’s sour and tart with a great horseblanket note. MMM...I love them gueuzes. Light bodied, crisp and smooth.

heemer77 (5145) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 1, 2006
A new arrival at John’s in Iowa City. The body is rich gold with with a nice egg shell colored head. The smell is nice balsamic vinegar with some hay and old leather. There is also some delicious sour cherry smells coming from the glass. The taste has plenty of dry tart charcter with some sour cherries and grass. There is also a little bit of salty old leather. There is a bone dry finish to this one. Ineteresting, but not particularly refreshing.

Thanks to Goldtwins for this one...Sour and funky aroma comes out of the lightly golden colored brew. Medium palate with good amounts of carbonation. The taste is sour, and very funky.
