kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2008
375mL bottle. Poured hazy reddish-orange with a moderate sized tan head that faded quickly. Aroma at first whiff was sweet and sour sauce, but further inspection reveals more wild, tart aromas along with some sharp lactic notes. Background flavor is primarily tart and acidic, with some nice accents of lemon, sour apple, oak, and traditional barnyardy notes. Not overly tart. Finishes dry, with tartness lingering on my lips and palate. Underrated Gueuze.

Nuffield (3940) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Dusty aroma. Not super-sour. Stinky cheesy flavor as it melts in your mouth but gives you some tangy sharpness, in part induced by the fizziness. Not the best of the Girardin bunch, but perfectly enjoyable.

BB 2006... Slight copper/yellow with small white head. Sweet’n sour.. just like a gueze should be.. Actually a bit to sweet at the time..

Guerde (1260) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2008
(bottle, thanks hellomynameis) Pours orange with a large white head. Nice funky smell, with notes of barnyard, tart apple, and slight lemon. Taste is nice and sour with some oak, and this underlying sweetness that lingers in the background. Very lively on the tongue, with a good finish. I usually don’t like sours, but I’ve loved both the Black and White labels from Girardin.

25cl bottle. Tasting@beermouth. BB 2006. Pours copper with a off white head. Sweet & sour well matured aroma. Sour, oak & acidic. Very soft & allround - well balanced. Great original gueze feel!

JK (5410) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2008
It was good of Hellomynameis to share this rare treat. I didn’t realize it was filtered. It has a powerful aroma of yeast and barnyard. Lots of sour, infected aroma. Sour, biting on the tongue, but it fades quickly, almost like it is melting. Some oak. Cloudy yellow color, and no visible sediment.

SilkTork (5467) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2008
250ml bottle from the Bier Tempel, Brussels. A refreshing drink. Fairly clean and light. Straw mould aroma. Aged wood and old wine. Can be a little sharp in places, but not aggressive. A fairly pleasant and quite drinkable experience.

sthlm (1268) - Duluth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2008
[Bottle, thanks hellomynameis] Pours hazy orange with no head. Really nice sour, acidic taste and aroma that are very similar to the Black Label, only not quite as sour. Sour finish lasts forever. A really enjoyable gueuze that is comparable to, although not quite as good as the Black Label.

MN Winter RB Gathering. I love this beer and wish with everything in me it was still brought to the U.S. by D & V, but alas no more. Great sour with lots of earthy barnyard funk as well as tart green apple and lemon acidity.

750ml bottle generously shared by hellomynameis. Aroma is quite woodsy. Rubber. Rotting lemon zest. Pours a cloudy muddy gold. Whoo hoo! Wonderful tart ans sour wet wood and lemon zest notes. Slightly dirty as well. Zesty, lively and quite vibrant on the tongue.
