1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle @ Chris_o’s Pre-Beer Exposed Tasting, September 2008.
[bought @ Utobeer]
Pours hazy brown-golden with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of spices and a little berries. Okay mouthfeel, though it is a bit thin. Flavour is all metal, light tartness and completely unbalanced cherry and spiciness. Yuk!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
<i>Belgian Beer Fest at the Muddy Pig.<i> I believe this was at least a two year old bottle. Copper color with no head. Light aroma of cherries and wood. The cherry lingers through the taste. Very sugary... I’m thinking brown sugar. Just enough sourness to be noticeable. Viscous. I honestly don’t see what’s bad about this at all. It might be closer to a strongly sour Flemish, but I am a fan.

Cloudy deep amber. Notes of overripe fruit and caramalt. Some wood developes in mouth. Very sweet taste and little sourness in finish.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 375ml bottle bought at Bier Paleis in Brugge. Pours dark and muddy brown with a tan head. Smells like dill pickles and burnt almonds and manure, and not the good kind of manure you find in some gueuze. Chemicals, biowaste, and PICKLES, damn. Whatís with the dill herb smell? And why am I picking up notes of baloney? Or is it pickle loaf? Sadly, it doesnít just smell like this, it tastes like it too. Of sure, thereís the littlest bit of apple cider vinegar and a light acidity, but that doesnít redeem this beer in any way. Pungent baloney meat and dill seasoning wrapped up in a terrible apple vinegar body. Breughel La Gueuze de Kamouraska may be the lowest rated gueuze in the world, but I think one is actually worse.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
12.7oz bottle, generous provided by acrdz, who is evidently mad at me for something. Sorry, Mike! This was not a good gueuze, or really a good anything. Pours a clear, bright honey-brown color with a greenish tinge; off-white head with patchy lacing. Smells like pickle juice poured into an ashtray. Tastes like pickle juice and spices and burnt bark. Pours down the drain quite easily. I hate pickle juice, establishing this as basically the worst beer Iíve ever had. In not so many words: a crime against nature.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Courtesy of acrdz. Muddy amber body with a small off-white head. Stinky feet and dill pickle were almost all I could get out of the nose. Well, they donít mess around when they sweeten a beer. Lots of sugar, light vinegar, strawberry in there perhaps or maybe itís the sugar talking. Medium/light body is thin with low carbonation. This shit sucks.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a brick-red brownish color with an off-white head. Minimal spotting noted. The nose is somehow both exceedingly sweet and excessively pungent. Notes of rotten dark fruits bathed in vinegar and corn syrup come to mind. With all the courage I could muster, I regrettably took a few sips. Ugh.....what a mistake. Long-spoiled strawberries and figs steeped in dirty sugar water and acidic salad dressing make for an offensively poor taste. Medium-bodied and abundantly syrupy, not even the mouthfeel is agreeable. This is an absolutely vile concoction. Drain pour.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Wow this shit sucked. Pours an almost clear copper amber color, with a small white head. Smells of absurdly tart soured fruits that had been sitting in the sun for 2 weeks, along with some battery acid. The flavor is way overdone with the sweetness and the tartness is way too funked out and soured. The fruits just get blasted by the tartness of it, and really have no chance to make an impact on the flavor. I got a weird ketchup taste to it as well, that made me instantly pour the rest out. Putrid.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Aroma of raspberry syrup blended with black dirt. Cobwebs and rotting tree bark. Ugh... Pours dark reddish/pink/brown with a thin white/pink head. Flavor is damn near unpalatable. Quite sweet. Very tart. And lots and lots of dirt and wet wood. Very acidic, but far from in a good way. Stewed vegetables (broccoli?). This is one wretched gueuze.
