Zlotta (1550) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2015
0.25 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, best before June 2016. Clear, golden amber with a medium large, fluffy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sourish, fruity-spicy aroma of oak, vinegar, old lemons and a bit of lovage. Sourish, fruity-spicy taste of oak, vinegar, old lemons and some lovage, followed by a medium long, tart and spicy finish. Thin to medium body, astringent and effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. This smells and tastes somewhat odd, a bit stale, but it clearly provides some similarities to the unfiltered version. This one is less appealing though, I prefer the black label by far. Totally unnecessary addition to the brewery’s portfolio.

Lore (1986) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 1, 2015
amber colour, medium sized off-white head; aroma of caramel, balsamic vinegar, tart, some peach, dried cherry and plum, earthy notes, maybe some woody notes, as well ; very well balanced bitterness, sourness and sweetness in the taste with fruits (dried cherry,mostly) , hints of citruses, and tart; excellent gueuze

King_Alex_II (1095) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Orange clear color with little foam ring. The smell has the almost obligatory old feet and than a clean citrus part. The taste is funky, sparkling, fresh and a little sour. The aftertaste is dry and sour.

yourilevesque (1169) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2015
Bière cuivrée à la mousse plus qu’abondante pour le style. Nez plaisant et rond dans lequel je retrouve une quantité de sucre appréciable (et appréciables), du paprika doux ainsi qu’un miel léger. Une pomme poire? Je ne ressens pas ici les attraits habituels d’un authentique lambic, mais c’est tant mieux. Effervescence marquée et plutôt citronnée, saveurs poussiéreuses - voire terreuses et sans réelle acidité. C’est plutôt rond, délicat, doux et ’’grand public’’. Loin d’être mauvaise, la Black Label est de loin supérieure à mon avis mais j’apprécie que cette bière me fasse découvrir un côté du lambic que je ne connaissais pas: ’’le lambic populaire de qualité’’.

anstei (977) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 5, 2015
0.75l bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Rather thin for a gueuze. Some funk, but rather weak altogether. Still not a bad beer, of course!

SinH4 (2306) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2015
Clear golden-orange color with white head. Aroma is funk, sweat, apples. Taste is similar, with a slightly metallic finish, also a bit bitter. Not comparable to the Black label, a bit thin. Rather soft carbonation.

ciocanelu (995) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 23, 2015
Clear orange color with white head. Aroma is fruity with some light vinegar notes and a bit of funk. Taste starts tart up-front with unripe citrus fruit notes. Gets more mellow towards the finish and aftertaste. It has also some bitterness at the finish. One of the more clean, easy to drink gueuzes.

Tide (2760) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle from Beergium. Copper color, white head. Sour taste with citrus, tart, sour apples, earthy notes and grass. Sour finish with sour apples, citrus, tart and grass. Very nice gueuze.

SanDiego1 (42) - ITALY - SEP 12, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore giallo dorato, limpida, schiuma fine e bianca. Aroma di legno, torbato, pesca, mela, leggero polveroso. Al palato piuttosto tendente al legnoso, torbato mentre la frutta è un pò in secondo piano. Poco equilibrata, godibile.
