pintbypint (2567) - Edmonton, Alberta, - NOV 13, 2009
355ml green bottle, corked. Golden coloured, hazy. Small white head with tight bubbles, leaves just a bit of lace. Nose is sour, citrusy, yeasty, dusty. Tart, tangy start, lemon acidity, light funky yeast notes. Dry finish with tart/sour lemon attack. Effervescent, crisp mouthfeel, medium body. Very pleasant.

TET (1578) - FINLAND - JUL 24, 2014
A golden beer with a big and blond head. Aroma is balanced, strong sourness, also sweetness, lots of lether and earthyness, hint of sweat, maybe also bananas. Taste is strongly sour, also some balancing sweetness, grapes, lether, some fruits. Medium bodied, strong and sparkling carbonation, some stickyness. Good, nice sweetnesss for balancing the strong sourness.

EvilCat (64) - FRANCE - JUL 18, 2014
Bouteille 75cl. Moustache Blanche. Nez léger, fruité sur le citron et la pomme avec des notes de bois. La bouche est marquée par une grande acidité citronnée, notes de froment et de levure. Finale sèche, très astringente. Bulles fines et serrées. Une gueuze honorable.

Holmen2 (704) - NORWAY - JUL 12, 2014
Bottled in November 2010. Fairly clear golden orange. Decent white head. Overwhelming sour aroma, with hints of dry old cider. Very dry and sour mouthfeel. Complex with high drinkability.

Habanero (2495) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a large off-white head. Aroma of barnyard, horse blanket caramel and citrus notes. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Light to medium bodied, watery texture and soft carb. An excellent and crisp Lambic Oude Gueuze.

For novices to the Gueuze Lambic style (like me), Lindemans Cuvee Rene is an excellent place to start. It’s relatively inexpensive, fairly easy to find, and celebrated for its quality (gotta love those Belgians). Body is yellow-gold with a short-lived, fizzy head. Aromas are enticing in ways that are strictly reserved for aged cheese and unusual beers such as this one. Expect funky, musty yeast, sour apple, acidic lemon, leather, horseblanket, and burnt rubber. To put it one way, the aroma is odd but classy. Actually, "odd but classy" would be a good way to describe Cuvee Rene and the Gueuze Lambic style in general. Taste is predictably sour with notes of vinegar, tart apple, citrusy lemon, and barnyard flavors. The almost-vinous fruit flavors pair surprisingly well with the dank yeast character. The spritzy carbonation, acidic taste, and low ABV give this Gueuze a pleasant, refreshing mouthfeel. Unusual but intriguing. I’m hoping that Cuvee Rene will be one of the many sour beers I get to try during my lifetime.

HuskerTan (464) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle. A- Citrus, barnyard, funky, musty, plastic, grassy. A- Orange brown color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Lemons, apples, funky, grease, slightly sweet, sour, tart. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, lingering finish. O- My first gueuze. It was an experience alright. The sour and tartness was very upfront. As weird as it sounds, this beer reminded me of the smells and whatnot you get when walking into a auto shop like NAPA or something. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. This is a style I’ll have to grow into for sure.

Jayseppi (154) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
What a perfect brew to drink in the sweltering heat of Canada day. 2 years of age on this bottle seems to have done it some good. Aromas of sour dough, barnyard, leather, and a bit of musty basement. The hazy orange body seems quite lively with the bubbles constantly floating to join the white cap at the top of the beer. The taste is very sour. Citrus sourness backed up by a touch of breadiness from the malt. There is some barnyard and leather in the flavour as well. Quite funky. Just the right amount of carbonation to be lively on the tongue without detracting from the flavours and it leaves a sour funky aftertaste in the mouth.

atrox (137) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Strong sour aroma, lot of fruits (especially apples and lemon), champagne and belgian aromas. Taste is also very sour, funky, like champagne. Very refreshing.

Ferris (3082) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle - Vintage 2004 - Juicy apples. Clear gold with no head. Tart apples with a bit if sourness. Very different beast, almost cider now.

Apfelsaftlook. Geruch nach Zitrus, Hefe, Apfel. Am Gaumen sauer, Apfel, leicht herb mit schöner Kohlensäure. Trocken im Abgang. Interessant.
