3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle: pours an orangy hay colour with a large fluffy white head. aroma is sour almost a little skunky, aroma also of unripe apples, but a little sweetness too. the flavour is a little thin and weak a small amount of soue apple flavour with a little sweetness. finishes quick and with hardly any drying. i love gueze and this seems sub-par and lacking alot of the strong qualities like in gueze.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
355 ml bottle. I have tried several lambics and generally have liked them, but had not yet sampled a geuze. I saw this one at Whole Foods Market and decided to give it a shot. The cork flies out of the bottle similar to champagne. Lively pour with a dull gold body and a large white head with decent lacing. Sour, kind of funky aroma that was not pleasant, but not entirely unpleasant either. The flavor did nothing for me; sour (which I normally like), but also salty (which I do not like). There was also a weird taste that I could not put my finger on and can best describe as wet dog. I did not detect any fruit flavors. SInce this beer has a decent overall rating, I’m assuming geuze is not a style I care for, although I am glad I tried it for the experince.

Really not my style. Give me champagne or give me beer. Don’t give me both. Pours with a beautiful head, but the tartness and light bitterness really don’t do it for me. Not terrible though, just not my cup of tea

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 Sour, barnyard and horseblanket with yeast weirdness. Amber colored and a moderate head. Sour flavor, but not sour enough. Light acid, some citrus, and lots of yeast. Very nice.

Hmm what a disappointment. So i have had a few of teh Lindemans Lambic Fruits, but this was horrid. Aroma was pungent. Appearance was like that of a cheap pilsner. Mouthfeel was very very sour. Flavor was harsh and not enjoyable. 8 bucks for hell. Only thing good was to get another style on my list.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear pilsner-like golden color with a nice light tan head. Nice tart nose of green apple and cherry. Nice tart earthy flavor, but its a slightly watery mouthfeel. There is a slight metalllic feel to it, but it is still good. Great nose and upfront tart flavor, but the finish is somewhat lacking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle 2000-01 from Dovetail. Golden in colour topped with a thin foamy head. Yeasty champagne aroma with notes of cork and barn. Taste of pickled oranges (if ever there were such a thing), lemon, lime and cork. Doh! Short, salty dry finish. Slightly bitter with an acidic citrus edge. A good beginner gueuze. Shara hated it, but I thought it was ok.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Thought I had rated this before, oh well. Hazy orange/amber color with a medium sized white head. Nice funky, tart aroma of citrus, wet leather and dirty socks(in a good way). Flavor starts off mildly sweet before turning tart. Citrus fruit, a touch of Brett and an astringent, grassy finish. Enjoyable, but not on par with the great gueuzes IMO.
