Light amber read colour. No real head. Very strong distinct scent I cannot place. Very bitter citrus taste that is slightly overpowering. Citrus burn fades quickly leaving a pleasant sweet aftertaste.

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2005
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, foamy white head. Bitter apricot and apple aroma. Bitter apricot flavour with very bitter finish. Second gueuze for me, and a really nice one.

pintbypint (2537) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2005
375ml corked green bottle., Pub Italia, Ottawa. Golden, without head. Tart and sour aroma with white wine/grapes. First sip was a little shocking since Iíd only had more mainstream, sweeter versions of Gueuze. Wasnít sure I liked it at first, it was definately sour and funky, but midway through the glass it won me over. Tangy and complex with some hard to describe flavours, kind of like a very acidic cider with salt/sweat notes. Delicate carbonation. 100% Lambic Bio label.

Tejas (860) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2005
2003 version. Hmmm, aroma isnít wet dog offensive; so far so good. Color is a little cloudy yellow. Taste isnít too tart. This is nice & refresing. Lots of green apple flavors.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Sour apple and grass aroma. Almost no head. Nice citrusy, apple, tangy flavor. Iím starting to enjoy Geuze more and more.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Draught. Lightly hazy peach color with a head that was coughed on. Cidery, tart, barnyard aroma. Extremely tart and dry tasting. The acidity leaves the tongue clean. Seems a bit still. Has some underlying fruitiness. Maybe pineapple.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2005
2003. Pretty looking orange in color, with a vibrant, horsey, leathery nose, that shows hints of lemon. Dry and rustic character, with a strongly acidic and sour nature and a fairly harsh overall flavor, but itís just so juicy and flavorful, I just canít help myself. I love it and I always have and probably always will. Itís just so funky.

(bottle) Funky and Musty. Very dry finish. Hard to pin down exactly what this tasted like. I liked it.

TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 23, 2005
Bottled 75cl, 2004 vintage (BBE 2030)
Hazy bright orange color, small orangey head, mostly vanishing. Strong sour aroma of apples, also earth, leather and cork. Soft, rounded mouthfeel. Starts fruity (apples again) sweetish then fills the mouth with sourness (lime). Earthy notes in the finish. Long acidy aftertaste. Well-balanced gueuze.
