yespr (31220) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2007
37.5 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a white head, quickly disappearing but leaving a nice lacing. Dry sweet classica and complex geuze aroma of apples, wood, mould, barnyard. Citric flavoured, very nicely citric sour. Only downside is that this beer is more brutal sour and mouldy in flavour and lacks bit of balance compared to Belle-Vue selection lambic. Otherwise a very nice treat. Dry woody and apple sour finish. Yummy.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2004
[I had the white label version] The color is a hazy amber and it has a fine beige head. The flavor is sweet and sour with the distinct notes of wild fermentation. The flavor is lovely acidic with strong notes of lemon though without being sour. The end is dry and the wild fermentation very present. A very fresh beer - would love this to cool off in the summer heat. All in all a lovely gueze.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Pretty amber colour with a tall head (a bit unusual for a gueuze). Rather sophisticated nose of...."sour nuts"? All the lovely, complex gueuze flavours are here: shipyard, ahem sorry - barnyard, mold, sweat - all trditionel delicacies.... But my stomach always goes bananas after gueuze... Bring in the Lanzo - a whole bucketful please. 221199

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2007
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sour fruit, wood and a lot of barnyard. Flavour is sweetish sour fruits along with some wood and earth. More carbonation than in most gueuzes, but still very smooth. Wellbalanced and quite sour thing. I like.

omhper (19381) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2005
Bottled. Clear golden, small head. Aroma of horseblanket and herbal spicves. Lemony with the acidity balanced by some sweetness. Some stale hops in a juicy finish. The bottle tried lacks the freshness and complexity of the very best gueuzes.

madmitch76 (15101) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2010
7th March 2010. Clear amber beer, frothy white head. Creamy malt with a little lactose sweetness. Some apple and lemon acidity but it’s well balanced. Finishes crisp and dry.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2006
Golden color; giant head, very lively bottle. The aroma is very strange: old cellar, with some plastic, magnesia and a hint of citrus fruits. The first sip is mellower than expected, then the real character comes out, being more astringent than sour, with a final touch of grapefruit.
It’s quite different from the other Gueuze, but maybe not really complex and unforgettable.
