scarletfire65 (1058) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Vintage 2004. Snifter. Bright orange pour, small head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is pungent barnyard and funk, Brett, leather, apricot. Rather light bodied, high carbonation. Good acidity. The flavors mirror the nose, bright stonefruits over a funky, earthy, leathery base. The finish is dry with a roasted mushroom note and a lingering twang. Pretty good geuze.

Ambro206 (238) - ITALY - MAY 3, 2015
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival: Una magnifica geuze. Titolo alcolico importante, equilibrato perfettamente con l’aciditŕ. La birra si presenta nel bicchiere leggermente ambrata con poca schiuma. Al naso sentori di pompelmo, limone, pesca ed aceto. Aciditŕ nella media, non invadente. Corpo medio, birra decisamente secca e beverina.

VDuquerroux (552) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 3, 2015

Medium sweet and light to medium sour ; light acid ; dry ; refreshing. Medium body and texture, nearly silky, average to good carbonation, sour finish, light warming background. Overall, a great beer : skilled ; geuze with a body and a background stronger than usual.

PapaVillum (591) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2015
37,5 cl, flaske, 8,0 % ABV, årgang 2010, BB: 12/09/2033, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 3. maj 2015. Gylden og ufiltreret Gueuze med mindre hvid og flygtig skumtop på 1 cm, som svinder til et par mm efter kort tid. Syrlig aroma af grapefrugt og en smule sødme af abrikos. Smagen er dejligt læskende på sådan en varm forårsdag i solen. Er medium til kraftig sur og let bitter i afslutningen. Den på én gang læskende mundfornemmelse samtidig med at den efterlader munden tør og mundvandsfremkaldende er dét, der giver det største indtryk. Middel fyldig krop med frisk karbonering på et medium niveau. Konsistensen er olieret og afslutningen/eftersmagen sur, let bitter og pludselig. Dejlig og fint eksemplar af Gueuze, som bare bør ligge i køleskabet til surt-elskende gæster og én selv.

JStax (3450) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2015
2007 bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a clear copper color with a white head of foam. The bottle opened with a nice pop. The aroma is floral, musky, earthy, fruity sweet. The taste is earthy sour with citrus and dry floral notes. Pretty damn delicious beer. Spritzy carbonation. Lighter on the palate and very refreshing.

Pedrens (141) - SPAIN - APR 20, 2015
Botella 2011. Color ámbar oscuro, translúcido. Espuma blanca media formación, persistente y bastante cremosa para el estilo. Aromas a sidra, vino blanco, cava, manzana, uva blanca, vaselina, floral, madera, alcohol... En boca es aceitosa, con carbo viva...dulcura media, acidez media. Matices a madera, fruta ácida, refrescante, final astringente aunque no demasiado con un punto dulce. Buena birra aunque no de lo mejor en su estilo. Aun así muy rica. Se notan los 8°.

McWorta (837) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 4, 2015
Deep golden colour with a fine poring fluffy white head. On the nose aromas of ripe green apple, barnyard, wood and subtle notes of citrus as well as faint hints of nuttyness and funky earth notes develop. Very harmonic! Softly carbonated with a light slick texture and a medium body. Light sweetness up front developing a well balanced tartness and acidity to it. Drying out short-medium finish. A very well done harmonical beer!
