3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 bottle labeled classic gueuze capped and corked poured into a flute. color is a cider like amber with minimal carbonation and virtually nothing as far as head on the surface. aroma has sour fruit, spiced yeast, and fermented apples. flavor is definitely tart and dries out your whole tongue. nice wood flavors from the aging up against the tartness and bitters. finishes with a totally dry tongue that just makes you salivate and bitterness.

bottle at the brewery. A very nice gueze, but I prefer 3 font or de cam. Nice sour tart flavor.

looks like white wine, and that is not the only thing the 2 have in common. the barrel aginag gives the lambic some simmilar notes and they are qualy tart. the gueuze has a bit of a butteryness to it as well.

Pale golden color, no head. Aroma of blackcurrant leaves. The taste is tangy and crisp, with wonderful sourness. Not a beer youíd drink through an entire evening, but a pure delight every now and then.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2010 Rerate - this bottle pours with a really cool swirly ribbon in the middle of the beer. Extremely tart nose with some spice. light color with thin white head. Nice tangy flavor that makes you pucker. But so good. Much different than the last one I had, hence the rerate. Very nice!!
Pours a fairly clear straw color into my glass. No real head to is and definitely no lacing. Aroma is nice of spice and twang. Flavor continues the twang, which is nice. But for some reason there seems to be a mustiness too. Although this is my first gueuze I donít think that is common. It gets a little less musty with letting it sit. Interesting flavor. A little sour and a little crisp. No bad, I wish I could score it higher, but something just tastes a little off. Not bad, just off. I think I might like the style will have to try more.

My first gueuze... I will be returning to the store tomorrow for more! Light golden with minimal head; not as hazy for me as others reported. I think this was a new bottle. Fresh, vinegary, grapey aromas and a little wood. Tart smelling. Very crisp taste with pleasant sourness and a dry finish, but not puckeringly so. Delightful on the palate. I am hooked.

750ml.Bottle. Label has the picture of the dude drinking in a chair. Donít know how old this bottle is, but iím guessing itís pretty young. Pours slightly hazy pale gold/straw with thin fizzy head. Settles to a clear pale gold. Aroma: Light barnyard funk, leather, must, oak, grapeskin. Nice. Flavor is sharp, tart and funky. Dry finish and a bit harsh. Too young?? Ok. What a fantastic style of beer.

Although the bottle that we bought didnít look like the labels to the left, I have confirmed this was the Gueuze that we tried. This was very crisp and you could taste the oak. Not too sour, but a nice tart bite. We shared this some family members who were introduced to and know enjoy Gueuze.

On tap. If you are prepared for it to be a touch more sour than some you will not be disappointed. I have found little variance from Cantillon bottle to bottle (in a good way) but the tap is slightly better than both.

Organic Gueze. Pours a hazy orange with little head. Strong aroma of vinegar and hay. Sits sour on the palate. The taste has hints of dried orange peels, vinegar, maybe aged cheese. Very nice. This is the third gueuze Iíve tried this year, and Iíve become enamored of the style.
