TrefwoordPunk (876) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle 25 cl. Pours amber with a medium white head and an aroma of sourness, apple, artificial fruit aroma and sweetness. The taste has far more sugar than any other gueuze I know, some sourness and some slight dryness in the finish. This is a pretty bad gueuze, but I would still take this over almost any pilsener or pale lager. I wish I lived in a Belgian town where this type of beer is the stuff you can drink everyday in all the pubs around town.

Bottle (250 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Slightly hazy brown-ish copper with a light ring of off-white bubbly foam and little lacing. Aroma is dominated by garbage juice and rotten fruits with some caramel when it open up. Considering how bad is the aroma, these guys are good because they were able to make the taste even more worst and include a more concentrated garbage juice presence to balance the sh*tty huge caramel/brown sugar that everyone except from a Gueuze. Medium body. Low carbonation. How often can you say that Chapeau Banana isn’t the worst thing you have drank during a tasting?

JulienHuxley (5463) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle. Clear copper pour with no head. Aroma of caramel, rotten grain, rotten hay, dust, old varnished wood. Taste is absolutely disgusting. Wow, my mind was blown by how horrible this tasted - banana and exotic actually warn you with a horrible aroma, this smelled only bad but tasted like death. Palate is flat, and sweet. Do they really use de troch lambic for this stuff? (I like de troch lambic...)

delorian (82) - budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 19, 2014
Hát, nem mondom fura volt belekóstolni, de a végére már tiszta élvezetet okozott. Kis hab, könnyű, mégsem annyira iható, inkább kortyolgatni való. Alapvetően savanykás az alap lambic, de van benne némi tokajis édesség is, amitől remekül csúszik és kifejezetten selymes benyomást kellt annak aki kellően odafigyel rá, s végül izgalmasan harmonizál minden kezdeti szemöldök felhúzás ellenére is.

vipinvelp (3552) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2014
Clear darker yellow with white foam head. Quite sparkling. Aroma is little sour, apples. Taste nice sour gueuze, you realy have to get used to this taste every time. (Brussels 201405)

bartlebier (3217) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 11, 2014
37,5 bottle from De Biergrens - bb09/2015. Open ominously plop-less, pours even more ominously quasi-flat and brackish, with a damp apple sauce glare to it. Aroma of old rhubarb compote, basement must and mouldy wood, rotten peaches, balsamic vinegar: most of it making a spent and tired impression.Taste is same, with a distinct white sugar note (label mentions added sugar) bringing back the rhubarb compote to apple sauce. MF has some carbonation after all, but is dampened by sticky sugars. This sweetened 80’s style geuze-lambic crossover comes with the aura of an abandoned roadside café and is not likely to convert the masses to the style (De Troch’s real lambic being a crossover between lambic and bottom shelf balsamic vinegar at the other spectrum).

kraddel (5726) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle from Hopduvel Gent . Pours dark amber , almost brown . No real foam . With some effort a thin white layer . Smell is sweet, some apples , very chemical . Taste is sweet, like a faro a bit, some lambic shines through, but you have to search . much apples . way better than the scent . might not be a respectable geuze, but damn, its better to drink than their take on an Old Geuze ( cuvee chapeau ) .

bursprak (2125) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2014
25 cl bottle. Pours reddish bronze with a small head. Aroma is sweet and some barnyard funk. Taste is overly sweet. More like lemonade than beer.

Camons (9404) - Hasselager, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2014

ruigo (2047) - PORTUGAL - FEB 14, 2014
Shared a 25cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a clear pinkish pale brown colour with a thin light pink head. Aroma is fruity, sour and floral. Average carbonation with a light body. Taste is similar to a cider, sweet and sour, with an acid finish. Overall, a nice c... sorry, beer.
