From bottle @Brouwerij De Troch. Deep straw yellow with an orangey shade. Barely no head. Harshly sweet aroma with a sourish touch. Taste more sweet than sour. Notes of stable, old grass, wood and some light caramel malts. Mild mouthfeel. Juicy texture. Sour-sweet ending. [Toer de Gueuze 2013]

Bottle shared with Joes and Dutchdrebus. Slightly unclear dark orange color, small off - white head that diminishes almost instantly. Smell a weird sweetness with some fruits. Taste sweetness, weirdness, some sweet fruits, sugary and yuk. Really dislike the taste of this beer.

Last mobile rate in J98LLY on the Motorway home in blighty, thanks to Leighton, split with he and Bruce.
Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin bubbly white head that stays to party.
Nose is sweet sugary toffee, raisens, darker fruit notes, light wood.
Taste comprises sugars, toffee fudge, touch of fruit, light burnt notes, touch of sour fruit.
Medium bodied with a sweet dry finish.
Another sugary monster from the De Troch sugar fetishists = sub par Geuze aktion!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle in the car on the ride back from Belgium, shared with Bruce and Colin. I mean, this beer is rubbish. Pours lightly hazy gold with a small, foamy white head. Sugary, wet wheat in the nose, some tangy fruits, sugar syrup, bread. Big sweet flavor, sickly, tangy and sugary candies, some wet bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet, cloying finish, sugary bread, light tang. Harsh, cloying, artificial. Awful.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours clear orangish brown with a small tan head. The smell is slightly sweet, some mild fruit notes, must, a little funk. Taste is quite sweet, apple cider, must, mild funk, artificial sweetener - a little dry on the finish. On the light side of medium body with mild carbonation. Overall not a good gueuze or at least not the kind that I appreciate.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark amber with a small head. Smells of vinegar, grains, yeast funk and almost a Gorgonzola cheese vibe. Tastes very sweet for a gueuze to me, it is only mildly tart almost is like a peach or cherry mild kriek apart from the yeasty dry leathery finish

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color is red-brown with no head at all. Aroma of vinegar, onions, apple juice. Taste sour, some sweetness, taste like fresh apple juice you cant say that this is a beer. Nice girly beer.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
A dark brown copper coloured beer with a quickly dissipating white head. A strong sour fruit aroma, smells more like a scrumpy cider than a beer, a positive view would say there is a hint of balsamic vinegar! Fizzy and dry mouthfeel. Very harsh, sour fruit taste, cooking apples, vinegary, there is a tiny hint of sweetness in the background, this does attempt to temper the sourness, but in vain! I could imagine this would make a cracking salad dressing though.
