harrisoni (13565) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2013 375ml bottle from Pitfield Beer Shop. Hazy gold colour with thin white head. Sourness is evident with lemon and grapefruit and a bit farmyardy. Some nice citric hop. Alcohol gives the sourness balance in mouth, but doesn’t suffer from any burn. Finish has some sourness and dryness. Good lemon and grapefruit finish. Enjoyable 3.9/5.0 I must have been off my tits in 2005, this is so much better than a 3.9. Lemon farmyard aroma, just more or less perfect in mouth. Bitter, sour hoppy finish. Gorgeous.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2007 No# 83. My first full bottle of geuze all to myself. Aroma is totally wild, White grapes, baby sick, onions maybe? Taste has the same white grapes with a well balanced sourness, not overpowering. Very refreshing beer. RERATING: Noticeably fuller than the oude geuze when having them head to head, and maybe even some alcohol as it warms in the finish. But alround an increadibly complex and amazing beer. RERATE: Gettin better everytime. A gueuze that makes me all silly and stupid.

Great lasting head. Special smell and taste of medicine or bitter buds? Sour taste of milk.

turbothy (1086) - Bonn, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2007 Pours a cloudy dark amber with huge beige head that dies down a bit with nice lacing. Aroma is musty with a hint of pear. The flavour is less sharp than expected, although "round" would be stretching it. Tastes of cider, yeast, muck and buttermilk (which is better than it sounds). Easy-drinking for a geuze, but a bit fizzy. Might’ve been too cold.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Very spritzy with a sour tart lemonade kind of flavor. Strong but not overbearing vinegar component. Finish is dry and champagne like. Just alright by me.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2005
Pours a murky, fleshy, peach hue and has a large, hot milk froth, white head that is sadly short lived. Strong lemon & orange zest, leather, hay, whole grain bread, barnyard, horseblanket, earth, gruyere cheese, hard boiled eggs, relish, honey, biscuits, vinegar and wood aromas. It’s interesting and diverse, but it just doesn’t "pop". Strong, tart, lemonade flavor up front. Spicy with hay and earthy flavors also. Finish bring the all of the good funk and some dried cherry pits. Thaaat’s more like it. Medium-full body with a slick, yet creamy, texture and fizzy carbonation.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2005
Couleur dorée foncée, apparence semi-claire laissant paraître de fins dépôts au fond du liquide. Mousse blanche et très persistante adhérant en partie à la paroi du verre. Vieux bois humide et jus de pomme acide, quelques notes métalliques. Acide lactique, sulfure et pommes vertes en bouches. Finale très sèche et tartrique, carbonatation active mais discrète. Bouteille, Délirium Café, voyage Europe 2005.

the kitty (coconut pete) smelled this beer and backed away and started twitching. hahaha. aroma had some fun fun things in it: string cheese, shellfish, uncooked salmon, tin can. very cloudy orange-yellow color. funky cheese aroma too... tasted like some lemon, swiss cheese, bleu cheese, lime, sawdust, seafoam, mussels, cat funk.

Shag (2598) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Ah another funkdified gueuze. A vinegar, oyster, and cheese aroma. The appearance was an amber color with a moderate head. A very funky barnyard flavor with a heavy dose of sourness present. A taste of lemon juice, champagne, vinegar, and tart apples. The aftertaste is very acidic and dry. Overall it was good.
