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.

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.

Sour apple and grass aroma. Almost no head. Nice citrusy, apple, tangy flavor. Iím starting to enjoy Geuze more and more.

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 (1864) - Fort Collins, 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.

TBone (15528) - 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.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2005
12 oz. bottle, 2004 cork: Pours tranparent light orange, with a large white sustaining head. Tart, sugary, barnyard aroma. Flavor is overly tart and sour, finishes dry and bitter.

PorterPounder (6909) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Discount Liquors, Milwaukee, WI. -- 12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy, murky, medium golden with a tight, white long lasting head. Tangy aroma, reminds me somewhat of a dry powdered chemical compund that the janitors used to put down on the floor to dry up vomit. A bit of ctric acidness mellows it a bit. Flavor is overwhelming sour. Just as imperial IPAs have stretched the boundaries on bitterness, it seems this style (even though it has been around for hundreds of years) just tries to make itself as sour as possible. No fruit to salvage it here like in Lambics. As sour as can be, which is what Iím sure it is trying to aim at, so it is true to style and appreciated, just not my cup of tea.
