Skyview (5283) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Sampled at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, Minnesota as Chapeau Winter Gueuze and shared by joebrew. Pours a clear brownish caramel brew with a fizzy off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and ring. Aroma of light cherry Vicks Nyquil with some barnyard yeast funk and some citrus zest. Taste is semi-sweet cherry, a touch of cinnamon, vanilla, and front yard lawn. Finish has a good balance of sweet and tart character with a light cherry aftertaste and a mild yeast flavor.

TrefwoordPunk (820) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle 37,5 cl. The front says "winter-gueuze, the back calls this x-mas gueuze) Pours a clear orange with a small white head and a fruity aroma, sweet with hints of citrus and more exotic fruits. The flavor is pretty sweet to start with, apple, cherry, lemon and liquid sugar, but there are some notes that I can’t really nail down. After the mild sweet comes a mild sour, evolving into a mildly sweet finish. Not a good beer, just a one-dimensional and too sweet lambic, but not as bad as some might say.

Wow - this was some messed up stuff. Huge thanks to Beastiefan for sharing and allowing me to try such a horrid beer. Pours a light copperish amber with a fizzy soda head. Aroma is completely messed up-= unlike anything I have ever had. Starts with wierd harsh peppery phenols and spice- cardamona nd cinamon- cherry juice concentrate, juniper berries, tons of earth and dirt with rusted nails, and even some lemon lime soda- and then some red cabbage- seriously this was intense with a crapload of aromatics that didnt go well together. Wierd cherry pit astringency in the flavor- cherry syrup, earth and dirt, vanilla bean, and tons of rotting mulch, and rum spiked hot apple cider. Pretty much no real tartness or sour in this which is expected from chapeau.

I am sorry guys, i did not think even Chapeau could make something this bad. Bottle from Legion242 (I know John, I was asking for it). Smells is cleaning product and cheap cherry syrup. Taste is vinegar and nail polish. Nothing "lambic" about it, and nasty, almost undrinkable.

Oh my God... Eugene, what did I do to deserve this vile concoction? Did I not express my gratitude for the drive to the tasting? Have I offended you with my Canadian sensibilities? Please, tell me how to make things right! Pale amber, thin head. Aroma is of bile, burned orange peels and charred computer circuits. Flavour of lime jello, drain cleaner and vomit. Goddamn... what a waste of a bottle and perfectly drinkable water.

notalush (5256) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Thanks? to beastiefan2k for sharing - ick! - smells of pine sol, damp wood, and blueberries - tastes like cane sugar, berries, mild spices - light acidity can’t break through the children’s cereal sweetness - gueuze? - this tastes almost just like their faro, but this might even be worse.

mmmbeer (1290) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Bottle poured into tumbler- poured dark amber, medium carbonation, white head formed and dissolved. Aroma of reminds me of an non alcoholic wine for some reason, alot of sugar. Hits the mouth with a thin body, alot of sugar has been added, finish collapses, very little sourness to this. What were they thinking?

bu11zeye (12112) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2007
(Bottle, labeled Winter Gueuze) Pours a glistening clear amber body with a small off-white head. The burnt plastic aroma upfront is overpowering, but later subsides with notes of corn syrup, ammonia, spoiled fruit, light cork, and some herbal qualities. Flavor of sweet corn syrup (surprise!), mint, light fruitiness, and some herbs.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Bottle. Dark iced tea body with a medium ring of loose bubbles. Nose-smells like a fish tank store, factory floor, artificial sweetener. Taste-Sweet! Fish food, apple, grape, light sour tarts, some tea, sweet grapefruit juice, wax, cherry, very sweet, almost non-existent funk, sweet and sticky dominates. For what it’s worth, this should be classified as a Faro. The overall flavor is not bad, but it has almost no gauze qualities and it is mind numbingly sweet and cloying.
