Pours rather dark for a "gueuze". Almost copper in color with a small off-white head. Lots of apple cider and vinegar on the nose. A weird caramel sweetness and lots of metal. A slight fruitiness, perhaps plums? The flavor is really no better. Apples, cider, vinegar, and oak make up most of the flavor and the strong metallic character persists. Not a fan of this one at all.

Wow. What a dissapointment. Pours out of the growler a deep amber orange, with next to no carb. Nose is appalling. Smells of rotting vegetables, and nearly made my eyes water. Taste is slightly better, but still unpleasant. Im not sure what happened here because everything else Ive had by Kuhnhenn is delicious.

Thanks Blake for grabbing the growler. Poured into a Duvel tulip. Pours a flat amber orange. Smells somewhat sweet and full of rotting vegetables. Taste is dull and lightly malty. This is disgusting and a poor example of a gueuze. Exceptionally flat and bland. No carbonation. This is a disaster of a beer and I typically love everything Kuhnhenn. Avoid at all costs.

pantanap (3351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2010
sampled on cask at GTMW 2010... pours a slightly hazy apple cider brown with a thin soapy white head...soft cherry and young lambic nose... flavors are more of that young lambic base, very light acidity and soft carbonation. not bad overall.

Cask at the Great Taste. Pours a golden copper color with a nice small white head. Tart sour aromas fill my nose along with some light colored fruit flavors. A touch of acetone as well. Not as sour and tart as I expected or wanted but fairly good. Light mouthfeel. If I was going for a gueuze, I would most likely pick something else other than this.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2010
(Cask) Pours a hazy golden orange body with a tall off-white head. Aroma of old books, grapefruit, vinegar, barnyard, and mustiness. Flavor of citrus, lacto, brett, grass, and earthiness. Nice American gueuze blend, which I dream to see more of a trend towards.

madvike (2682) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 18, 2010
On cask at GTMW 2010 - Pours orangish amber with a white head. Not too tart on the nose, with a little funky earth. Taste is a real flat citrus tartness that is refreshing but not very flavorful or funky. Smooth and syrupy, and overall a disappointment.

The third or fourth sample of the day (following the Cherry Olde Bruin) was this experimental release. Not quite as satisfying as the previous beer it was still well rounded. I am curious to see how the recent New Glarus version will compare. Few breweries are trying to make this style so as they learn the American interpretations can only get better.

Aroma / Appearance - Rusty golden liquid bobbed under a delicate egg white head. Oak, malt, lemon pledge, and sour citrus notes form an inviting and warm appetizer. The total impression is both dry and crisp as it hits the nose.

Flavor / Palate - Sour and dry like a medium grade lambic brewer this falls about halfway on the spectrum between Lindemans and 3F gueuzes. Caramel, lemons, and sour granules of sugar merge into a taste that dries the throat out. If this were on its own it would have been a great beer. Today it was simply overshadowed by tens of other world class alternatives.
