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

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - MAY 30, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a loose, white head that quickly drops to a swirling nebula of tiny bubbles at the surface. The nose is a dry lemongrass tartness with a mineral-farmhouse yeast backing. Light-bodied and effervescent, it finishes pleasantly tart without being puckering. The flavor is of tart, lightly lemony mineral water with fine carbonation and a touch of malt sweetness transitioning to slightly dry finish. This is a very refreshing and tasty gueuze.

UXO (111) - CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours a clear honey amber with two fingers of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and moderate spotty lacing. Nose is barnyard funk, sharp apple cider, faint grapes and wheaty malt. Taste follows suit, starting with tart apples giving way to musty and cobwebby horse blanket. Mouth feel is light and crisp, with moderate sustained carbonation and a lingering dry finish. This is a very nice gueuze, reminiscent of a dry champagne. Minimal sweetness paired with emphatic (but not overwhelming) tartness is the dominant characteristic, but the musty funk kicks in rapidly and lingers. I quite like this, but feel like the nose in particular could be more complex. It’s very good, but falls a little short of great.

cards04 (1594) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
A very nice gueze. Pours a hazy effervescent orange. Aromas of lemon, apple, and white wine. Flavors are woody, bitter, some nice sweetness and some sour. Not as sour as some gueze.. but still a solid brew.

seynie (129) - Tienen, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2014
Dark yellow with lots of carbonation and foamy head. Light body with lemon juice, green apples but also some walnuts and sugar. The finish is dominated by the acidity, but well balanced with some dry and sweet flavours too

ElManana (204) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2014
Sour, sour and hmmmm... I guess that could be -- hmmm. SOUR! There’s a bit of some very citric grapefruit in the SOUR, enigmatically heavy body. There are some mild horse blanket aromas that fully emerge just as a tannin-laced SOUR finish completes the experience. Yes, good but just SOUR. I actually love a good sour beer, but this bottle was almost wholly one-dimensional.

Torrefacto (494) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 16, 2014
Color ámbar claro con ligera espuma blanca. Aromas más bien secos de madera, un brett. equilibraado y algo afrutado. Cuerpo medio, textura maltosa con un sabor al inicio afrutado, dulce y ácido y un final seco. El regusto es duradero. Muy rica.

Pugno (55) - Konstanz, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2014
Cloudy deep dark yellow colour. Sour aroma, with sweets notes that remember me rotten fruit. Taste is acide, with notes of green apples, citrus. Soft co2, frizzy on the tongue, refreshing, clean ending.

(Flasche) Es hat eine dreckige, dunkelgelbe Frbe, ist hefetrüb mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sauer, Treibholz, dumpf mit etwas Kadamom und vllt ganz etwas Trockenfrüchte. Der Geschmack sehr sauer und etwas dumpf im Abgang, sonst schlank und erfrischend. Die Karbonisierung ist sehr spritzig.
