Hazy golden with a perfect head. The aroma is sour and full of wild yeast, while the flavours are initially acid and sour going into yeast, wood and grape.

WOW what a great beer!!! nose is citrus and acidic as it should be cloudy yellow, decent foam. Acidic but very very drinkable, refreshing with a touch of oak in there too.

Busting my doctor-ordered beer fast. Bottle from SL. Poured a pretty foamy, fizzy, lively hazy golden with a large initial head, some lacing all the way down. The aroma was light funk, lemongrass, leather, bret. The flavor followed suit, but it was tame, not a harsh variant within the style, actually a tad on the boring side, but perhaps more highly drinkable than others. Unfortunately, the flavor was a little too tame and accompanied by metallic notes, which didn’t do wonders for me. Mouthfeel was light to moderate for the style, finishing mildly acidic. Man, this was a letdown even after a 2wks absence from drinking alcohol. You’d think a poor hungry man getting a saltine after a day or more of fasting would come across as one of the finest delicacies around! Oh well, not in this case.

Ratman197 (12668) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Green 375 ml corked and caged bottle poured a cloudy gold with a lasting amber head. Aromas of sour citrus, barnyard, leather and light spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a lightly tart finish. Flavors of lemon, grapefruit zest, barnyard funk, light leather and a hint of spice with a crisp lingering lightly tart finish.

375 ml bottle. orange colour. aroma, flavor and palate are much to sour for my taste, if this is because it’s an "old" Geuze, than I prefer the young one’s..., perhaps I will buy one and try to save it for 15 years and than rate it again...

bottle at OpusK 8€ BB 15.05.2027 year 2003 color:amber bright Scent:nice fresh sour scent Taste: astringent sour. Very difficult to find any another tastes even alcohol. With bottom yeast bit gentler taste.I just started to think if this is marriage toast for celebrating people who haven’t tasted lambic before. This might be shocking experience unpleasant one.

rlgk (16903) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2008
Bottle at Tre Små Rum, Göteborg. From 2003. Pale golden, white head. Woody, citric aroma, sourish, some cork and with fruity notes. Sour and sourish flavor, woody, citric, spicy, mostly with pepper. Really nice grapefruit notes, some sweetish fruits. Quite discrett sourish citric and fruity finish. Very good.

Grovlam (4199) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2008
Bottle. Large thick bubbly off-white head that mostly lasted. Light cloudy golden copper color. Really good display of lacework. This was a very well balanced Geuze I thought with notes of light horse blanket, soap, perfume and nice feel of soft fruity touch. Over the palate came quite smooth and mild sour grapefruit like with a mix of other sour and mild sweet fruity notes. Medium bodied with a surprisingly lively carbonation and dry texture. Moderated acidic with good counter sweetness. Ends dry and fresh – sour grapefruit and horse blanket like.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Bottle @ Stone Sour Fest 2008. Pours a cloudy haze of orange, dusty color topped with a white soapy head. The aroma is mainly of wood - oak bark, as such - and then there is a wave of musty brett. Quite dry and has that wheaty character. Liberal funk but lacking in a true complexity. Carbonation is lively and prickly but this in some ways helps to mask the 8% alcohol. Earthy and woody mostly.

emacgee (4567) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2008
2003. Pours a translucent golden/peach with a thin fizzy white head that quickly subdues. Very tart and citric aroma, grassy, earthy, very dry and vinous, muscadine grapes. The flavor is very acidic and tart but you can tell its mellowed. Dry acetic bite, some citrus and lemongrass and a little earthy. Nice gueuze.
