Beergaard (124) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2014
Golden yellow beer, nice small head. Tart aroma with some citrus, cider and sweet hints. The taste has both funkyness, tartness, fruityness and a nice dry finish. Lively coarbantion. Dry and good.

daje (2609) - NORWAY - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle at Øltorget, september 16th 2014. Clear golden body with no head. Funky aroma with barnyard, lemons, sour taste of apples, horse blanket, mild sweetness in the back, funky apple aftertaste. A nice one, though I have no idea why they filter it

tandembrauer (281) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear amber; long lasting cream coloured head. Aroma of malt, honey, and sweet wine. Tastes surprisingly little sweet; some sourness with tart aftertaste. A bit thin bodied, but not bad for 5 % gueuze.

ShivanDragon (1812) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2014
flesje van 37.5c, schenkt amber/oranje, helder oranje/amber met minimale witte kraag. het is de gefilterde en iets aangezoete versie van de geuze heb ik begrepen. aroma komt licht zurig binnen met wat citrus en iets van deeg tonen.
smaken zijn redelijk honing zoet, matig bittertje, matig zuur je kan merken dat het wat aangezoet is, zwak fruitig, hout, taart, appel en citrus/limoen. medium body, dun, lage co2 en droge afdronk. komt eigenlijk wat binnen als een instapmodelletje als je toch een keer een geuze wilt proberen.

EdKing (1985) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle from GBBF 2014. Nose is really musty, camembert rind, cheesy, tangy stale, horse blanket, slight toffee, stale apples, little or no sourness or tartness. Taste is tangy fruity, stale sliced apple when the white goes brown, lots and lots of horse blanket, wood, ever so slight sour and tart mainly tingling on the finish. For me lambics are all about the sourness, so this is a little disappointing for me. It’s in the same kind of category as Cantillon Iris.

SilverfoX (417) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2014
typical gueuze smell of fruity vinegar, colour of mahogany with white lacing on top, strong sour fruity vinegar flavour acidic and wineish, nice stuff.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
The filtered version of the famous Girardin geuze, watered down a bit with their Ulrich Lager and sweetened, but not overtly so. Hazy orange colour, medium off-white head. Sourish and very fruity aroma, bit lemony, subdued funkiness but still believable. Taste likewise, fruity, sweetness shining through but fortunately in a restrained and subtle way, smooth, soft sourishness, refreshing; not as complex as the black label version but a good introduction to the style.

ClubGonzo (4238) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2014
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a clear deep amber-hued orange body with a small white head. Nose is red berries, horseblanket, straw, citric peel and hints of peaches and peppers. Taste is bitter herbs, straw, horse blanket, mild smokey tones and hints of red berries, apple vinegar and citric peel. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation. An elegant geuze with an original, herbal touch. Good stuff.
