tiggmtl (4547) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2005
Musty, minty, sweet and tart, lightly corked, woody citrus, apple aroma. Clear caramel-golden body is topped with a fizzy white head that recedes to lasting fine bubbled cover. Sweet and tart apple flavours are strong along with musty, leafy and woody citrus notes. Somewhat puckering finish before a lasting sweetness in the aftertaste. Light body with moderate carbonation. Flute. Just above fridge temp. Bottle (Main Street Party Store, Jul-05).

Aurelius (4578) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Corky, musty, green melon rind, cider vinegar aroma. Tea brown, coating beady head. Tart, astringent like green pecans, cidery, a little fig, a little honey. Medium mouthfeel, a tangy spiked finish on the lips.

Gorbalev (2995) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Bottle, Le Select Bistro. At least a 4 year old bottle from my understanding. Dark orange pour, lots of bubbles. Small white head. Stale, sour, musty aroma - what you would expect from this style. Tart sour taste - unsweetened, which is a refreshing change from recent imports. Medium to full bodied, this had a lot of malt backing for the style. As it warmed, there was a very noticeable fruitiness coming out of it. At the end, a tremendous amount of grapefruit. A very tart, full-bodied, complex gueze that I really enjoyed.

Smelled this from across the bar as my bar tender popped it open...and I was a little disheartened. Not used to smelling my drink from four feet away. I’m giving these repeated attempts but still not "acquiring" the taste. Seems like sickly sweet apples and maybe some citrus fruit. All with that basic musty sourness under it all.

EKGoldings (603) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2005
I actually liked this one a lot. Flavor is complex fruit esters, some barny character from the Bret but not as much as some of the other Geuze I have had. A different style of "beer’ for sure but a nice accompanyment with food.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2007 At the amazing Le Cirio, Rue de la Bourse, Brussels. Dark amber in colour, slightly cloudy with a small off white head. A musty smell of apples stored in old barns. The taste was cidery, sweet and sour. A full, well-rounded feel in the mouth and a late dryness coming through. I loved this beer, though perhaps I was just overawed by the surroundings. 8.9.2007 Rerated under the alias of Foudroyante Gueuze. Bottle from Carrefour, Calais, France. Amber with a white head. Sour vinegar aroma and a gentle sweet and sour taste. Easy drinking gueuze. 6.4.8.4.16: 3.8

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2005
Loam, sweat and dirty clothes. That is the aroma if you wish to use that word. I give it praise for being a LARGE aroma. You smell this 2 feet away from it. Caramel colored and opaque with a thin but well pronounced head. Sweet sugary malt and cork flavors. I don’t know enough about the style to know if it is right, but I know I am not a fan.

PorterPounder (5972) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Marcello’s Wine Market, Baton Rouge, La. - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark orange to light copper with a thck, spritzy white head that leaves thick lacing. Earthy, dirt like aroma with some winey accents. Flavor is very tart with some vinegar notes and a bit of sour candy. Mouthfeel is lip puckering and decenlty thick. Much better than thier fruit lambics.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2005
355ml bottle, labeled as Foudroyante Gueuze, picked up in Grenoble, France. Pours a hazy deep copper with a thick frothy khaki head. Smells fruity, of plum and pear, tart berry. Sour apples, yeasty and spicy. Light brett funk. Very nice. Taste is where it goes downhill. Sweet, really sweet and fruity. Sour apples. Compared to the complex aroma the taste is too basic and overly sweet. Mouth is crisp up front but becomes sticky sweet, just overwhelming. Very tough to get through this one, just overly sweetened.

Sten (695) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2005 Light copper coloured with very small white head. Immediate sourness in the aroma and taste with a fruity undertone. A really quenching brew but a bit to sour. (Bottle 25cl)
