UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Very special and famous Gueuze. First taste of cidre and chemicals. A feeling of uncertainty is creeping to you - do I really like this product. Yes, I like it very much. Really a fresh member in the beer family. If you need some day something special, try this. Special thanks for well chosen, bitter hops! Could suit well together with crepes - must test!

jakubwloszcz (191) - Piastów, POLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Barwa złocista, zamglona. Piana obfita, całkiem ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromat kwaśny, są niedojrzałe owoce, jakieś winogrona, cytryna, do tego lekka stajnia. W smaku jest średnio kwaśne, owocowe, bardzo pijalne i orzeźwiające. Wysycenie jest średnie, goryczka lekka, w ustach zostają długie posmaki.

Samtzu (217) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 22, 2016
Zwanze day 2016. Very similar to Limbic but carbonated and more pronounced flavours.

SPDickerman (1195) - Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Pours clear golden orange with a small white ring. Smells sour and slightly sweet. Taste is sour. Light-bodied with a sharp texture and average mouth-carbonation, Cantillon Gueuze Lambic 100% Bio finishes with a lingering subtle sourness.

wolffish (552) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2016
Ma première "vraie" gueuze mais certainement pas la dernière... Je comprends maintenant pourquoi on se l’arrache. Cette bière n’a aucun défaut. C’est si complexe et délicat à la fois, tout en ayant beaucoup de corps. Au visuel, elle est plutôt dorée. Le parfum et le goût sont plutôt boisés et citronnés. Ça m’aide à mieux situer le savoir-faire des artisans brasseurs d’ici où je vis (qui sont excellents) ;-) Ma bouteille est datée de 2015.

anstei (1235) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 3, 2016
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Almost fruity funk and stables. Well balanced sourness and tartness, with a soft but lively carbonation. Medium body, made refreshing by the sourness and carbonation. Very drinkable. Classic in taste, setting a standard to live up to.

DCLawyer (2786) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Draft in a tumbler at Sovereign on Zwanze Day 2016 courtesy of Huhzubendah (previously had a couple bottles at Sovereign during visits earlier in the year). Clear viscous copper-gold with faint white head. Funky and acidic, with citrus, yeast, and grains. Very drinkable, though with many Cantillons (for me) the acid starts building up after several glasses. Awesome gueuze.

Vighals (3258) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2016
Klar gylden bru med lavt hvitt skum. Lukter sure lukter som sitron, lime og noe mot champagne. River litt i nesa. Smaker surt, eddik, sitron, vanilje, epler og trevirke. Middels lang.

jc1762 (852) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Tap into a pint glass showing dark orange with sparse white foam. The nose shows a lot of acetic and balsamic vinegar. The palate is full bodied and fully carbonated. Flavors of lightly tart orange and zest with a very light zesty white wine bitterness.
