fonefan (35353) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle @ Paters Vaetje, Antwerpen. Hazy medium yellow color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is sour, ripped fruit, lemon crispy. Flavor is moderate sweet and acidic with a long duration and a nice dry finish. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat, finish feel is light astringent. Very nice and refreshing. ;o)) (300807)

ZBF2008: From bottle. Pours golden orange/light brown, clear, and with a crispy and quickly disappearing white head. Acidic, light apple aroma. Flavour is dry, yet quite smooth. Light woody and a mild sulphorish note. Ends dry.

Ungstrup (29528) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2003
The aroma is sweet and sour with notes of metal, the sourness coming from the wild fermentation and the sweetness from the malt - a very inviting aroma. The color is orange and it has a fantastic head, and is very lively. The flavor is sweet, metallic, bitter, and bitter. It starts out as a sour orange, but then a the flavor of grapefruit takes over and lingers thru to the end. A great Gueueze - but I can recommend sharing a bottle.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) My version was only 6% ABV. Golden, hazy - pretty much no head at all. Complex sour, vinegary notes. Very traditional blend with all the horseblanket, sweaty esters. 201297

oh6gdx (20670) - 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.

Golden coloured and slightly hazy with rich head. Slightly fruity aroma. Balanced acidity, rather mellow, full bodied for a gueuze.

2005 Bottle. Very hazy amber beer. Thick bubbly white head. Nose of sherbet and wet dog! Crisp palate, dry. An approachable gueuze, not too acidic. Just a little lemon and wood. Bare whisper of hop. Finishes dry. Not too bad.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013
2012-08-31, corked bottle, vintage 2006, bb 2030.01.28, 6 years old, 9-4-8-3-17=41
Cloudy golden color, with frothy head. Deep aroma, horseblanket, with a sharp manure presence, pungent, and some fruitiness (grapefruit, pink grapefruit). Highly carbonated; the body is maybe too bold for a Gueuze, and even a bit oily; it has a strong character, with cellar elements, some alcohol perception and relatively strong bitterness.
Aggressive, maybe excessive.

Expiration date 2020, 9 years old, 10-4-8-4-17=43
Hazy golden color; good head retention. Very good Gueuze aroma, plus a nice fruitiness (grapes, grapefruit…). Aggressive, more because of the astringency than the acetic character; woody, mature.
Peculiar, my favorite Gueuze, so far.
