12.7oz bottle. Murky dirty golden hue. Got the funk from the pour. Total vineagar apply nose. Sour tart madness. Sour apples and lemony citrus. Fruit explosion. A whole lot going on. But well put together.Leaves a coating fuzzy sensation on the teeth. Complex and intense.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: Sour, acidic, and musty.
Appearance: Cloudy golden color with a large white head.
Flavor: Crisp, very acidic, and tart with some hints of oak and light fruits. The finish is very dry and sour. Similar to eating crabapples.
Palate: Light to medium-light body and generously carbonated.
Overall: Very good! I haven’t had too many Gueuzes before, but the style is growing on me with each one I taste...

Aroma of cheese and some funkiness. Aroma of some sweet and sourness. Flavor was pretty tart but not overly sour at all. Pretty good gueuze.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 31, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2009 Pizza Port Belgian Beer Fest. Pour from a 750mL. Aroma of mellow birch skin tang. Woody and perfusive with barnyard. Deep gold cloud with white fringe. Flavor a lightly rubbery wheat oil in a sour field of oaken agricultural grasses. Very mellow, sublime and fruited. Horsey oak brings up the background with a mouthfrul of hay. Fragrant. Light honey esters. Finishes in a salty cherry pit cascade. Enjoyable for it is a lambic that speaks of the wheat in the beer and the base ingredients. Letting some of the base ingredients through isn’t something I usually gather from this style.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Bottle shared by puddintane: Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head. Aroma, funky, some barnyard like notes, pale malts, some spices, and a sourness. Flavor, tart and funky, some lemon, and a nice acidity. Good stuff, nice and puckering.

blueduk (118) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2007
NOTE: Sometimes labelled as "Classic Gueuze" w/o reference to Organic. Pours somewhat hazy golden yellow-orange. Smallish fizzy white head that recedes in no time. Aroma of wheat, lemon, and that funky sweat quality so difficult to pin down. This is indeed "classic" in regard to its lambic character. Light bodied, and tart up front. Just tart enough to put the fear of God into you before playfully backing off. Bone dry with some acidity, probably from the carbonation. This one finishes long and slow with a tangy wheat flavor and mineraly dryness. A nice low-end Cantillon.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2007
12.7 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquor - Corked and capped? What the hell? Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a half finger thick white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is a wide range of fruit and light yeast. Has a bitter and tart lemon flavor. Couldn’t taste any of the oak aging. Thin body and mouth feel. Not my style of beer. I should pour this out, but at $7 a bottle, I’ll choke it down.
