ComradeK (1060) - The Vale of Dundas, - JAN 22, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours a clear, bright medium gold, with a small white head, which does not last all that long nor leave much lacing. Leather, champagne and some funky sour notes create an alluring aroma. Green apple up front leads into dry champagne, with some sourness leading into a leathery, woody flavour in the mid-palate. It ends strongly tart and sour, with cider apple and lemon-lime notes. There is a lingering sour and leathery aftertaste. This is a very good beer, not only potently sour, but with serious complexity to back it up. Great stuff.

Gueuze de libro. Se repite la historia. Repito mis sesiones. Jamás me decepciona, especialmente últimamente, cuando noto menos su acidez y más sus matices, más su complejidad. Algo hace clic en mi cabeza: ahora entiendo porqué para el entendido es un gran estilo.

Some kind of lemon aroma with a little barnish hint. Clear with a adequate head. Sour with dry finisz. Very good example of Gueze.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden yellow color. Aroma and taste are nice sourness and a dry finish.

ogniskowicz (292) - POLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Aromat: końska derka, stajnia, mokre siano, drewno. Wspaniały. Wygląd: jasne złoto z piękną pianą. Smak: ogromnie wytrawne, ogromnie kwaśne, musujące, czuć wszystkie dzikie nuty świata, do tego lekką owocowość. Wspaniale pijalne i orzeźwiające. Brak dosładzania to tylko zaleta. Jedno z najlepszych piw jakie dane mi było pić.

Na 3 fonteinen de beste geuze die er is. Heerlijk bier! De afdronk op het einde is soms iets té scherp maar valt goed te doen.

Hazy and at the same time clear liquid, small head. Aroma is fresh and sour. Medium body, little carbonation. Taste is sweet, sour and soft.

une magnifique gueuze typée, avec un nez complexe, une bouche raffraîchissante, une grande longueur et un équilibre idéal. Un grand plaisir pour finir la soirée

tmoreau (2744) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a cloudy, orangey straw color, with a modest, quickly diminishing layer of soft white, bubbly head foam, and light spots of lacing. The aroma’s intro was one of light yeast with a hint of cheese-like funk, then tartness & dryness, with esters as citrusy lemon, and a blend of green apple & pit fruit. Medium bodied, and highly effervescent, the taste continued with fruit notes as the nose, quite dry & citrusy, with lingering tartness. A flavorful gem enjoyed by all at our tasting session.

teddybeer (2473) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 18, 2015
Pale golden color with a minimal and quickly diminishing white head. Aroma has notes of green apple with acidic notes. Flavor is fruity, slightly notes of citrus with a good vinegar mouthfeel. Easy drinkable

Bottle at the Earl Of Essex, London. This is an amazing beer, semi dry, sour to taste. A recommended beer.
