   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
Advocate_Ames (565) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2016 Pours a golden color with a fine foam head. The aroma is very barnyard, musky, funky, some oak, and has a lemon citrus to it. The flavor was a medium puckering sour lemon taste with grape notes. There was a subtle sweetness that goes perfectly with the sour character of this brew. The finish was rather great in that it wasn?t too overbearing with the sour intensity. It lingers pleasantly. Overall this was a memorable brew.

fiulijn (17990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2016
Tasting at Mattís; bottled 3/30/2015
Cloudy golden color, small to no head. Compared to real Gueuzes, this one has much more cheese; depending on the day it could be passable or shitty; Iíll go for passable today. Lowly carbonated, the mouthfeel is a bit too oily; sour and lemony, but also the cellar character is strong and pleasant, although the light cheese touch is less exciting.
Nice attempt, but as per the details itís miles away from any Belgian Gueuze.

brokensail (15203) - San Leandro, California, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle @ Mikeís. Thanks, Mike. A clear orange beer with a white head. Sort of funky and citrusy aroma. A lot of yogurt. Slight metallic note, but good fruity grape, grape skin, and apple. Lots of sour lemon and lime. A little bit of a milky, musty funk. Kind of damp and mushroomy. Interesting beer. Kind of reminds me of Hanssens.

bytemesis (6012) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle - batch 1 thanks to Travlr! POurs hazy orange, small white head, dissipates fairly slowly, good lacing. Aroma is big funkiness, loads of musty basement, sweatsocks and horse blanket, along with oak and a bit of lemon and apple. Flavor is medium funk, there is a touch of sweetness along with light tartness, quite oaky. Light body. Solid.

Oakes (14671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2016
Tan and a light haze. No head. Aroma is a bit of earthy, leathery stuff. Similar palate, has a bit of that Belgian authenticity, leathery and wheaty.

Ernesto987 (5289) - Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2016
bottle thanks to Shad, not much of a Gueuze here, light and not much for complexity or barnyard/farm flavors and aromas. More of a sour blonde. Moderate oak.

linusb (544) - SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2016
Backlog, November 6, 2015 I get oak and some kind of grapes. There is a perfume like/floralness to it. And even cheese! Very nice beer!

Ferris (10565) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle - Funky petroleum and nice grape notes. Cloudy gold with a small white head. Bitter grapefruit and some bitter notes. I wished it was astrodome as the nose.

mcberko (11944) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2016 750mL bottle, sent from Beerman6686 (thanks man!), pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out white vinegar, some light funk, and a touch of acid -- very inauthentic. Flavour is much more convincing, with barnyard funk, white vinegar, and some light acidic notes. Not quite like an authentic gueuze, but itís quite complex and not like a typical American sour. Really great attempt.
