jookos (2592) - FINLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle. Orange light haze. Dried apricots, some sweet malts, li light funk, barnyard on nose. Some sweetness, medium crisp acidity. Feels a bit murky, old leafy. Isn’t as crisp clear as I’d like.

YantarCoast (202) - Moscow, RUSSIA - NOV 7, 2014
250ml bottle from apivo.ru. Pours dark orange with a rocky head that fades away. Aroma of lemon juice, champagne. Fruity sweet and sour taste. Notes of cherry. I'd drink this again. Shame it is so overpriced here (£2 for 0.25 l).

martjoobolut (930) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 6, 2014
0,25L bottle, BB 15.05.15. Pours golden with off-white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sour, vinegar, medicinal, fruits. Flavor is tart, vinegar, fruits, wood, and some sweetness in the background. Carbonation is rather high. Finish is dry. Overall: ok brew.

330ml bottle - BB2011/07, drunk 2014/08
Sweet caramelly aroma, fake honey-like, like a children’s breakfast cereal. Bright orange, brief frothy head. Fairly watery palate, nice sharp little twist to the retronasals. However, it’s a rather bland. Simple sweet malts. Ageing hasn’t helped the sourness at all, I guess it was paseurised. Dull, and nothing like what I know a geueze to be.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
West-Flemish ’capsulekensgeuze’ and therefore belonging to the lower edge of the geuze world, deep amber colour, aroma and taste sweet-sour, far less funky and far less complex than the old geuzes but even less complex and more bland than the ’capsulekensgeuzes’ made by Belle-Vue or Timmermans. Approach this as a thirst-quenching session beer, however, and it will still be quite okay.

mcberko (7046) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle at Delirium Cafe, pours a hazy dull bronze with a small off-white head. Nose brings out a little oak, some stale notes and champagne. Flavour is far from an authentic gueuze, but it’s far from undrinkable. Notes of champagne, oak, and light tartness. Not complex, but also not off-putting. Not too bad for a fake gueuze.

Jado (572) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2014
From 250 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber-brown with a small white head that falls to a collar. Fine carbonation. Aromas of fresh green apples, white grapes, balsamic vinegar, cherry and a touch of lemon juice. Taste is a bit simpler than the nose would suggest with a lactic sourness dominating before subsiding to fresh citrus at the back end with a white wine note also there. Light bodied with a fruity aftertaste. A pretty good lambic.
