3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
25 cL bottle. Pours slight hazy orange with little off-white head. Aroma is malt heavy with a slight acidity. Flavour is sweet malty, cane sugarish. Finish holds a very subdued caramel sweetness and a mild malt note. No acidity at all. Ends rather sweet and malty. Unusual sweet for a lambic.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A hazy brown beer with no head. The aroma is only slight compared to other gueuzes but has the distinct sharp note of the wild fermentation. The aroma is quite sweet with notes of the sharpness and dryness of a gueuze. An OK beer, but I would rather have a sharper and drier gueuze. I think this is a good gueuze to introduce people to the concept of gueuze.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle 25 cl) De Troch is best known for it’s range of overly sweet fruit beers, but they also do make beers that come closer to the real thing - without hitting bulls eye though. Dark amber, almost no head. Vinegary nose, and the tartness really dominates all the way through. But it’s a harsh tartness very far from the sophisticated, earthty notes that characterizes the best classical gueuzes. Solid dose of candi sugars cannot save this, and it ends quite unbalanced. 230599

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled (from lahoublonniere.be). Deep amber colour, no head. Aroma is sour wood, with some slight sweetish fruityness also. Flavour is birch sap, raisins, resin and some syrup. Mild sourness lurking, but overall a very sweet thing. Blech.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Sharp and acidic. Slightly vinegary finish. Offset by pleasant sweetness and fruitiness. Dusty undertone. Nice

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color. Aroma of malt, Porto wine, sweet. Very sweet taste, with peculiar wine notes (common Porto wine). It’s not a Gueuze, I should not like it, but I do!
