jonas (5697) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2005
Hazy golden colouring, champagne carbonation, creamy tanned head. Cobwebbed leather and cheese, some fruit in the aroma. Mainly leathery fruity tartness on the tongue. Medium body with a quite elegant dryness - peters of into a dry fruity aftertaste. Very pleasant.

joergen (21072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy amber coloured with an off white head. Acidic aroma of fruits and wood with flowery notes. Fruity flavour with acidic, woody and hoppy notes.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2005
Hazy orange/amber colour. Thick white frothy head. Sour, sulfur, green apple and red berry nose. Sour in flavour as well, a little saltyness is sensible. A little yeasty and rubbery. Somewhat lemony. The finish has a great sour sting, too bad it disappears so quick.

DanielBrown (3848) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle at Plan B during RBESG 05 pub crawl. Subtle aroma. Tasty Gueuze, with a balanced lemon flavour. Clean, not too much funk. Fizzy, thinnish body: refreshing and quenching. A light Gueuze maybe??

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2005
(Bottle in Botteltje, Oostende). I thought i’d had sour gueuze until I tried this. Absolutely stunningly sour with loads of citrussy lemon (lindemans?) bitterness from old hops, mustiness and horseblankets but all this is swamped by a totally fresh, pure lambic sour flavour. Absolutely glorious stuff if you like sour lambic - as i do. I’ve had a lot of it since and it’s getting better and better.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2005
Golden geuze with a thick foamy white head. Nice sor geuze aroma, very lactic and organic. In mouth, nice puckering sourness with vinagry notws and sour cherries. More crisp and sharp than other geuze tasted, a tad agressive, but a good surprise. At the Oude Arsenaal, May 2005.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2005
My notes say ’aroma of feral yoghurt with a little spew’. Nice! Not as offensive as the aroma suggests, a relatively soft palate given the acidity, the sourness is actually well balanced, not too puckering.

4.2
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
Big white foam covers the cloudy gold, sunny colored body. Typical aroma, straightforward fresh hay, cobwebs, cheesy hops, not as assertive as I expected from the kriek. Yeasty white wine, grapey, champaign reminiscent with concentrated dust and old books notes. It sounds better than it is if I may say so, it is just too light and thin-feeling an aroma to be world-class. This changes dramatically in mouth though, it is aggressively acid, very tart, cidery. Pinneaple notes, lasting apricot aftertaste. Many types of acidity, gently citrusy with grapefruit notes. Assertive, but nevertheless very drinkable. A labyrinth of musty flavours and one that is easy to finish. Foamy palate, authentic in soul, spritzy carbonation. Excellent stuff, delicate and well finished.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2005
At the Ambiance Magazine Gueuze tasting (De Heeren van Liedekerke) in Denderleew. Very nice warm yellow color with copperish glow and with small white head. Expressive aroma’s of sour apples and the crispyness of an New Zealand Savignon blanc like Cloudy Bay. Touches of green aspargues, agrum, undried tobacco plant, Greek Yoghurt, nutmeg and barnyard accents. The taste is sour with some roundings. It has accents of Peache-pit, cinnamon, cardamon, fresh mint, grapefruit-zest, unripe green prunes, apples and wood. Also a honeyed touch but very very dry.
