Bottle, as De Troch Winter Geuze 2014. Pours crystal clear pale orange, small white head, dissipates quickly, some lacing. Aroma is grass, candi sugar, grain. Flavor is pretty darn sweet, candi sugar, perhaps a bit of urine, minimal tartness or funk. Light body. Huh.

JDBaker11058 (1464) - Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2015
Appearance: clear dark gold, small white head. Aroma: rather sweet, but otherwise a typical lambic/gueuze aroma, with green apples, rice vinegar, a bit of lemon and a dose of funk strongly reminiscent of stilton cheese. Taste: hugely sweet, with green apples, peaches in heavy syrup, muddled pears, a bit of cough syrup. Finish: slightly dry in the back of the throat, almost like a real gueuze should be, but thereís a lingering sweet syrupy feel thatís overpowering. Notes: ok, a winter gueuze, eh? So thatís why itís like drinking slightly lambic-flavored syrup. Interesting concept, but would not try again. Bottle from the Westover Market, Arlington, Virginia.

AdamJackson (3432) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - APR 21, 2015
Dark orange color, almost no head. cork comes out appears totally flat. Smells like lemon and gingerbread. Ever had an old lemon meringue pie with ginger, clove, table sugar, mint leaves and balsamic vinegar? Thatís this!!! AYAYAYAY!

bursprak (1161) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle. BB 2013. Copper pour with no head. Cork was soaked and a bit moldy. This was bad... Mold, cork, sugar, syrup... Drainpour...

Enjoyit (3573) - Vadum, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2015
Clear cooper of color with a white head. An aroma of candy, cherries, cow barn, flesh, fart and malt. A flavor of sugar, cow barn, old fruits, malty and old dough.

thornecb (4739) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle titled De Troch Winter Gueze. Pours deep, clear gold into a tumbler. White head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet, dark pit fruit aromas. Sweet and fruity strawpeacheraprirazapple flavor. It does sort of hurt my teeth in itís sweetness. Lasting mildly bitter wood finish that quickly turns cloying

Bacterial (2071) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 11, 2015
(from notes) Bottle shared at the Stuffed Sandwich last week. Nice nose. Clear yellow pour. Very sweet finish with some cherry notes.

gEUS (1394) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2015
375 ml bottle at home. Jesus, what it this? Smells like bad flowery perfume and tastes like watery red bull. A pity for the lambic culture and especially a pity of the De Troch Lambic (had a sample of their 3yr old lambic which was one of the greatest ever tasted). Note to the brewery: just stop the chapeau crap. just stop it. stop. it.

kermis (6568) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle sampled at Essen Winterbeer Festival 2014. Pours clear golden with an off white head. Artificial sugar aroma, sickly sweet caramel. Nasty sickly palate. Flavour is heavy sweet and just a touch acid. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. A sorry excuse for the style.

ShivanDragon (2080) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2014
schenkt helder donker gouden met minimale witte kraag.
aroma van zuurtje, rode fruiten, en zoetig.
Smaken zijn ..... wat ... enorm..... zoet..... Niet normaal zeg....... een blikje cola met 24 suikerklontjes is er niets bij..... dit slaat alles. waarom staat er op het etiket Geuze ?.... zet er dan gewoon op "fruitig suikerwater!"... medium body, glad en dik met lage co2, vele rode fruiten en iets appel... maar nee dit is het niet !!
