COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A golden hue sets off the wonderful almost champagne like taste.

highlandlad (1421) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2006
A light and simple champagne-like gueuze. Nothing funky or extreme about this one, just a very well-made lambic. Poured a cloudy honey colour with a short head and very good lace. Tart, sherbety aroma of dried apricots and grapes. Thin champagnelike body, plenty of spritz. Very dry on the tongue with apricots and sour lemon peel. Some balancing sweetness. (750ml bottle, Duff homecoming gathering - not sure who brought this - Duff? - but thanks!)

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - FEB 3, 2006
Bottle. Light gold color with a nice head. Very very carbonated. Citrusy, sour fruit (champagne-like flavor), earthy funk, and yeast. Thin mouthfeel. I’ve never tried a gueze, but I’m glad that I did. I’d drink this again, especially on a hot day.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Bottle. A geuze in Texas? Wow. That’s all I can say about that. Usual hay body but with a very thick film of lasting bubbles. Nose-very stale barnyard that is mildly muted. Taste-high CO2, medium brett, mild barnyard, grape, sour, lemon zest, quite dry. Mild-medium brett characteristics. Quite thin and watery. All the great geuze flavors are there, but they are held back. Just a little too watery to blow me away.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2006
Bottled. Golden colour, big bubbly white head. Sour fruitish aroma. Flavour is dry fruits with some sour hints. Overall quite a sweet Gueuze in my opinion. A bit sticky palate afterwards. The yeast from the bottom of the bottle added fulliness to the palate.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2006
Thanks for sharing Kevin! Sour grapes, yeast, mineral and spices....very wine like. Tart grape flavours followed by funky yeast earthiness. This is very much like the description says, champagne like. Glad I got to try it. Lots of carbonation, sour finish.

TBone (13001) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2006
Bottled 75cl, vintage 2005
Golden honey color, cloudy off-white head, lace. Earthy, mouldy but not very sourish nose. Earthy, carbonated, apple flavors. This is like drinking dry white wine or cider. Sour, but not extremely sour, more like easy to drink, simple geuze.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2006
Bottle (750ml). Shared with my wife. Poured cloudy orange-amber with a large lasting foamy white head. Sharp, tart aroma of sour cider, yeast, unsweetened rhubarb, hints of sulfur, iodine and tar - there’s clean beer taste in there too, but mostly a lovely funky tartness. Tart, sour citrus and yeast taste, some wine - ah, you know, like tart sparkling wine etc. etc. - a solid gueuze. Mouthfeel is lively, sour, acidic, juicy - complex but balanced. Solid representative of the style - and I’m drinking most of the bottle myself (my wife isn’t into it).

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Not quite clear dark yellow with a moderate white head. Sour, tart, medicinal aroma with some camphor. Sour, fruity, and lightly sweet flavor with a mineral water backbone. Notes of apple and pear. Silky body but still crisp and effervescent. Not as complex as some but still quite nice.

eczematic (1320) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2006
clear, full gold in colour - nice. smell is round, herbaceous and horsey, horseradishy and hairy with a handful of hallertau or something. in the mouth the immediate impression is that it’s got a lot more clean maltiness than any other gueuze i’ve had. and i decided that this was a good thing, even though i’m never sure exactly how to evaluate lambics cause they’re so far-out. but this is balanced and drinkable, while still being firmly on the hardcore side for a gueuze. full, juicy malt blends with brett and barnyard, with an appetisingly sour but not caustic finish. some herbal hops there too which is nice. not nearly as stinky or "complex" as the cantillon we had earlier but it’s so drinkable and well-put-together. good stuff.

Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2006 2005 Bottle in a gueuze tasting. Appearance has the typical deep hazy golden color and the characteristic thin white head. Powerful barnyard/horseblanket and dustiness aroma enveloped by patent notes of citrus/apple. One of the most aromatic gueuze of the tasting. Very well assembled. Taste is true and honest. Carbonation is fine. Body is medium. Astringency is a little weak from what I’ve come to expect from a gueuze and leads to a jumbled finish that would be its major insufficiency.
