2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
First timer with a Gueuze...Darker clear gold pour with little to no head. Pretty sugary smell, I likened the aroma best to a belgian style saizon really. Quite apple-other fruit juice tastes with a distinct acidic bite to the tartness. Really pretty good and drinkable. Tastes like no other beer. Somewhat weak in the ABV content sadly, which lended to the easy drinkability.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Samle at a beer tasting at "Pannrummet" in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Dark amber color. Very sour scent. Fruity and sour taste. A nice example of the gueuze type and recommended (by me at least) as an aperitif.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle Fairly clear deep amber with a thin but persistant white head. Thin but sticky lacing. Tart but not overly dry aroma. Expected musty, dusty notes but also plenty of flavor that is lacking in other Gueuzes Ive had. Flavor is similar, lots of tasty fruit flavors, deep acidic tart backing The tartness does not overpower and very tasty over all. Thanks to Buck Dich for sharing this one.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Amber clear color, nice puffy head, retentive lacing. The nose is lightly tart with notes of sage, clay, lemongrass, plenty of horsy barny notes. The flavor is sweet for a gueuze with a pleasant fructose mouthfeel along with the tart note. One of the few gueuzes that really treats my nose without killing my jaw. I love the tartness, but it’s good to have something different and a bit more balanced. Incredibly tasty still though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Souvenirs Gueuze. Amber coloured, very light sprankling. Small off-white head. Beautifull nose, sweet-sour combination. light wooden cask, peppery with some fruity hints (raisins, pears) Medium body, little sourand peppery taste. Finish is dry, little sour which makes it a little sticky and sharper. Overall a very nice on. You should really taste this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 37,5cl. Good combination between the bottle and the label. Clear amber colour. Medium, light, creamy head. Very fizzy at the beggining. Nose is very sour and citric. Flavour is very refreshing, with notes of vinegar and apples. Good combination between the sourness and the sweetness. Dry finish. Not as sour as a typical flemish sour ale, this one can be difficult to love. But overall, this is a nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Armoa is skunky, like a Heineken. Taste is slightly sour and acidic. Not too sweet. Not many flavors going on here, tastes like a sour cider.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Texas Wine Cellar, Fredericksburg, Texas
Pours a lush amber gold, with a lasting head. Reminds me of ginger ale with more head... Anyway, aroma is straight farmhouse earth tones, with hay and sweet wheat. Nice undercurrent of straw as well. Taste is sweetened ice tea, with emphasis on the sugary friggin’ aspect of sweetened ice tea. Very fruity flavor; hints of orange, mango, and watermelon. Palate tickles the tongue. Not bad; I actually enjoyed it; but waaaaay too sweet for the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold body, thinnish white head. Nose has apples, fruit, horsey goodness but quite sweet. The flavor is wayyy too sweet - lemon, apple pie, a hint of oak. Not too complex. Oh well... I shoulda expected this from Lindemans.
