rbfishstick (141) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Enjoyed via a bottle from the cellar. Pours a hazy orange gold with a medium white head with some lacing. Smell is very acidic with a slight sulfuric tinge. Taste also has some of that same sulfur/natural gas edge but tart, almost salty and very sour. It is also so sour it almost feel like it is dehydrating you and has a dryer finish as well with a tart, grapefruit juice and milk combo finish. A very complex beer to taste - a lot going on here.

Maakun (823) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. Hay, grains, lots of herbs and yeast, light dry corn, lemon, some funk/barnyard. Quite sour but not overdone, with à touch of sweetness and dry light bitter finish. Lively carbonation. Very decent gauze. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange-hued straw yellow body with a small white head. Nose is strong bretty stable funk notes, lemon peel, straw, hay, smoked ham, wood and hints of yoghurt and maize. Taste is red berries, metal notes, stable funk, lemon peel and hints of hay and grapefruit. Light to medium body, high carbonation. An unusual an complex sour with some rather strange elements in between. Pretty nice, all in all.

tmrmwel (1058) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle, vintage 2010. Pours light hazy dark yellow, with a big creamy head receding to finger thickness. Aroma is tart fruity lemon peel, wooden brett, and light funky notes. Full body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is apple cider vinegar, horseblanket and notes of brett. Lingering tart, astringent finish. Nice, mellow and very drinkable.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Nose of citrus, florals, and oak while the pour produces a cloudy golden peach hue with a white ring and no lacing. Citrus sourness is dominate on the tongue, but a nice earthiness, and oak are also present. Dry finish. Medium-light body with high carbonation. Fizzy mouthfeel. In summary an excellant example of a Gueuze. Very well balanced and extremely enjoyable.

375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of funkiness, some light tartness, pale malts, hints of light spices and fruits. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the tartness/sourness. Average texture. A solid beer.

L?odeur très acide, mais en goût un très bon equilibre. Le début d?acidité arrive mais s?estompe vite. on ne sent pas l?alcool. Assez doux pour une geuze. Très bonne geuze.
