75cL bottle. 1997 vintage. Clear golden color with medium head. Aroma is all over you. Big time sourness, oak, some melon(honeydew). The flavor is very sour with the oak, some acetic, funk, and barnyard. Somehow it goes down pretty smooth with all the aroma & flavor. We tasted this after some 2002 La Folie and the Cuvee was a bit better. This beer is truly incredible!! Awesome beer!! Wow! (Most of you won’t like this so please send us your bottle! hehe) Thanks Randy!!!

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2007 1998 Vintage. Poured a golden color with a large head. Earthy and fruity. Lightly sour and tart. Gueze is a style I don’t have much experience with (this is only my 2nd one). I look forward to tasting more Gueze in the near future. Retasted and increased the overall score. I now loev Guezes and find my earlier ratings of this style funny.

madsberg (9650) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2005
Bottled: Light amber coloured. Beige medium sized head. Vineous sweetness, light earth and a vague sourness in the aroma. Flavour is earthy, dry, fruity and has a nice and balanced sourness. Dry and sweet sourness in the end. Is quite refreshing and cleansing. Is quite delicious in its own way. I like my gueuzes more sour though.

DocLock (7499) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2005
This is my 3rd lambic, which should put me up there in the Hall-of-Fame for the style. Deep golden semi turbid in color, with a huge, fizzy, white head. Aroma of Granny Smith apples, malt, hopcit, and a sizable barnyard component. Tastes sour, very sour, with some malt, hopcit, and fruity finish. This is like a slightly more tart version of NG Red or Tart without the fruit and with the sour kicked up a notch. Maybe I’m part Belgian, but I love this style. Booyashaka.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2005
750ml bottle from Beer Temple in Brussels. Sat down for a few weeks and poured into a Girardin glass. Pale, hazy gold with a thick, sparkling white head. Aroma is sour and woody. Flavour is tart and a little sour, but there’s virtually nothing else going on and it’s quite sweet. Maybe it’s just me, but I found this to be one of the lesser traditional gueuzes.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Pours a very pale copper color and makes a huge creamy white head. Smells like a musty old barnyard with some hints of citrus. Flavor is very tart with lemon and grapefruit, with a light musty character in the end. Very asstringent and light to medium bodied with a very dry acidic finish. A quite drinkable and tasty brew.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Served as a New Years 2005 toast. Dark straw color body. Deeper and more attractive than most gueuzes. Head is effervescent but more like beer than champagne, and that appeals to me. Aroma is sour and musty with notes of thick fruit peels and light Brett. Flavor is wheaty with dry honey tones. Also has elements of white wine. Sourness comes on soft and then sharpens. More accessible than most gueuzes, which is not surprising coming from Lindemans, but still a complex and wonderful beer.

HarmonKill-a-Brew (407) - Wilmar, Arkansas, USA - DEC 31, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 1997 vintage. Aroma is almost too complex for words... I’m sure mine won’t do it justice... WOW! Grain, banana, and old wine... best aroma ever :-) Flavor was tart with a slight hint of banana. A bit too tart for me and not really my thing, but clearly a very fine product.

A nive well-balanced Gueuze. Not too sour. Very refreshing and complex. A good beer for Gueuze rookies.
