viktorvee (510) - Greater London, - DEC 11, 2013
Somewhat cardy and flat, the off notes aren’t so much in the welcome funkiness but a murkiness, not light or spritzy at all. Maybe an old bottle?

ozzatoadisback (56) - ITALY - JUN 30, 2016
Intense orange colour, almost perfectly transarent. Small white head recedes quite quickly but still leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma shows soft fruity sourness (green apple, lime) and a bit of earthy funkiness. As the smell suggested, sourness is very much in check for the style and nicely balanced by a sweet wheat malts foundation. Fruity tartness (again green apple, lime) is more evident than lactic sourness (slight earthy funk). Light bodied with medium to high carbonation, pleasantly spritzy and dry enough in the finish. Refreshing enough. Overall this is an easy and enjoyable but not very complex gueuze.

KoNrRiI (1095) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2016

0.375 bottle.
A clear, amber color and a small, white head. Aroma of fruits, fermentation, it is both fruity sweet and yeast-like sour. Taste is obviously sour, fruity, surprisingly malty, has some flavored water, and wet cloth. A medium body, a slick texture, and a lively carbonation. Finish is medium long and also sour - quite decent. Overall the beer is well-made, it is pleasant to drink and is agreeably balanced in its sourness despite the style.

Silvan7 (1043) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle @home. Ambrato carico con riflessi dorati, limpida, ma non cristallina. Schiuma bianca grossolana breve persistenza. Aroma inteso, lattico, vinoso, di legno ma senza il classico odore di vaniglia, tende alla mela verde e al citrico. Gusto acido, non particolarmente aggressivo, non molto persistente, poi esce un abboccato, citrico, vinoso, si ritrova il legno. Spigolosa, poco calda, non molto carbonata, abbastanza equilibrata ed armonica.

A good gueuze, but seems too taim where there could of been a full taste. Sour with funk smell finish is only slightly bitter, doesn’t last too long though.

37,5cl bottle at home, 2014 ed. Pours a murky golden colour, clear, stable offwhite head. Rich sherry nose. Taste is mildly sour and tard, more on the earthy, musty side, fruity grapes, sherry/vinous too. Quite dry in the finish. Good body, medium carbonation.

Mesjasz (856) - Lodz, POLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Butelka. Kolor to przezroczysty pomarańcz, spora biała piana. Aromat mocno funkowy, szczegolnie mokrej skóry, agrestu, niedojrzałych owoców. Smak średnio kwaśny, lekko wytrawny i słodki. W smaku limonka, agrest, skóra, lekko karmel. Posmak lekko goryczkowo ziołowy i zestowy. Średnie ciało, gładka faktura, wysycenie niskie do średniego. Smaczne :)

luttonm (4449) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2016
Bottle in Amsterdam, at Marko’s. Clear red-brown, soapy foam. Good winey aroma, fermenting red wine. A little sticky, lots of calvados flavor. Medium tart sour, lots of tannic fruit. Pretty tasty. A bit rough around the edges but very enjoyable.

Tap @ Fermentoren, Aarhus. Pours clear, light amber with a small white head. Aroma has lots of green sour apples, the classic but not as complex girardin funkiness to it, grapey, vinegary. Taste has the same sour green apples, tannic, vinegary, barnyard.
