Bill Becker (403) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 12, 2012
375ml corked and caged bottle from Jan 2009. Okay, I put it in the fridge for about an hour and when I removed the cage, the cork shot out like a rocket. Thankfully, I didn’t lose much of the beer. It pours a huge head of foam..I can see a cloudy straw yellow brew underneath. As the foam shrinks, it leaves some nice lacing behind. The smell is both very sour and a bit bitter. Lots of apple like tartness dominate but there’s also a barnyard kind of smell there. It smells so good. I wonder if the taste can match it. Green apple tartness is up front, slight hint of funk, a bit of hop bitterness, more sourness...this is a grand brew to drink if you really dig sours. I’m smacking my mouth drinking this. I just don’t want the sourness of this brew to leave my palate! On the low end of medium bodied with a lively level of carbonation, the mouthfeel is just fine. This IS one hell of a Geuze! De Cam beers are awesome!

Boutip (4856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty yellow color lambic with a nice off-white foamy head. Aroma of funky ester with some green apple tart notes is pretty enjoyable. Taste is a balanced mix between funky ester with some barnyard notes and green apple tartness. Body is full enough for style with good carbonation for an 8 year old bottle. Good balanced between complex flavours and good drinkability with limited acidity level which I appreciated.

bursprak (763) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2014
375 ml corked and caged bottle split two ways. Slightly hazy golden pour with lots of sediment and some small lacings on top. Lots of funk, leather, barnyard and citrus. Does have some off flavours though, moldy wood and cork notes.

Luk_ (204) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle at DHVL, 2005 vintage. Clear blond with small white head. Aroma is Woody, funk leather and oxydation notes. Taste is very acidic, brett and citric tartness. Palate is light and dry. Not in the best shape but still good.

Beerconnaiseur (109) - BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2014
37,5 cl bottles in 2009. This 5 year old unpasteurised gueuze explodes on opening. You have to be quick with all the wild yeast pressure. Pours a hazy murky amber with lively and fizzy foamhead. Vanishes real quick. Aroma is hops, hay, malt, apple. Taste is hops, acidic, needs more body.

Alengrin (2431) - BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2014
Old geuze blended from Boon, Lindemans and Girardin lambics. Orange blonde colour with fierce, ’champenoise’ sparkling and dense, frothy head, very powerful and attacking aroma, funky, complex as any old geuze, with lots of citric acidity, barnyard, old cheese, almost ’agressive’ estery fruitiness and woody sherry notes. Taste equally complex and fruity, strikingly acid (a true ’neige’ geuze) - in fact, I found this to be among the most sour of all geuzes I tasted so far. But it has all the finesse and freshness of any geuze and I am glad this blender has taken up the tough job of making traditional lambic beers anew back in the nineties.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle 37.5cl @ DeCam Volkscafé. Dorée orangée col blanc. Arôme est type gueuze note grains léger boisé avec une petite note fruitée. Palais sec et terreux. Note cuire avec ce rappel typique de gueuze sur pointe fruitée citronnée en gardant ce côté cave. Pétillante moyenne et rustique, fleuri finissant sur un léger aigrelet qui reste bien balancé. Le profil reste juste un cran faiblard, cela relevé par le manque de pétillance. Sinon, une très bonne gueuze.

Grzesiek79 (3303) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Bottled On January 2009. Ponad 5,5 letni prastary Lambick. Geuze pelna para, zaskakuje juz na samym poczatku, mocnym i hucznym wystrzalem korka i podczas nalewania tworzy sie niesamowicie wielka piana, grubo pecherzykowa, taka jak w szampanie ale jest dlugotrwala naprawde. Chyba pierwszy raz taka spotkalem w piwie Geuze. Kolor zloto metny lekko jasno pomaranczowy. Sprawia wrazenie lekkiego ale po chwili alfa kwasy daja znac o sobie w przelyku, jest wytrawne niczym luksusowe wino bez najmniejszej ilosci cukru, perfekcyjne odfermentowane. Mozna sie zakochac w tym kwaskowatym posmaku.
