yespr (30760) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2007
37.5 cL bottle. Pours unfiltered orange with a quickly disappearing crispy head. Aroma is fruity sour to acidic. Flavour is vinegar dry, slight sweetness too. Dry finish. Tasted decent, but I admit that this is a vaste on me, I don’t really understand to appreciate this one.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2003
The aroma is powerful acidic, sweet and slightly sour. The color is an unclear orange and it has no head. The flavor is very sour, a bit acidic, prickling but at the same time flat. It ends on a acidic dryness with no metallic notes as other gueuzes. An OK gueuze - without being great.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Version simply labeled "Lambic 100%". Pours a lovely, orangey golden with a slight haze - no head. Almost flat. Very sharp, acidic nose. Notes of iron and the typical Cantillon vinegar approach that pretty much kills your buds. This is very traditional hardcore stuff. 280601

oh6gdx (20253) - 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.

Keg at the Craft. Hazy gold - amber beer, little white head. Light crisp palate, semi dry. Nice level of sourness, not too much. A little grapefruit and orange. Mild brett. Fairly sour finish, a little acid kicking in. Nice Gueuze - quite approachable.

Cloudy golden color with generous head; it’s highly carbonated. At first, it just smells like an old wet cellar, then there is a more animal presence, horseblanket; some citrus fruits (tangerine and oranges, light cedar); pungent but with grace. The mouthfeel is quite smooth, and as round as a gueuze can be; good malt flavor, definitively not too dry, with sharp but pleasant sourness, and plenty of bitter orange peel; the final is instead more lemony, and lightly astringent.
Excellent.

2004-02-25, bottled 1997, 8 years old, 8-3-7-4-13=35
Golden color; the head quickly fades. As usual, a wonderful sour and citrusy aroma. Taste without compromises: sour, tart, astringent, with clear lemon juice notes; maybe a bit thinner than usual (probably due to the age). Not very bitter, the final (sourness) is quite long.
