First Gueuze I’ve ever had. Refreshingly tart. Nice, Champagne like mouth feel. Nice intro to fruitless lambics

As a traditional Bavarian I shouldn’t touch such beers, but I’m glad I did. It’s somehow like the champagne of beers: dry, sparkling and particular. It has a chewinggum taste, but in the same time some characteristics of white wine and champagne. A good mix of differently aged beers. Bravo to the Belgian Master-Brewers !

I am a lambic amateur, but I hope that something is genuinely wrong with the beer I tried tonight, or I will put lambics on my personal "Worst Beer" list. It is so sour, like a sour-patch kid! And it smells like garbage - literally. Whatever fruitiness it has is overpowered by the sourness. I can’t get past it.

Maybe this is just my inexperience with lambics talking, but this s--t is f---ing disgusting! It tastes like an extremely bitter version of those ’hard cider’ beverages that are so popular these days. I sincerely hope there is just something wrong with the bottle I have.

Good lambic blends of sourness, sweet fruitiness, oak and tartness. Very easy drinking and nothing too challenging. Seems to a touch of sugar that just puts this on the sweeter side. Not incredibly complex but good starter gueuze and summertime sipper.

Milky dark blond. Very sweet. A soft drink with some geuze added. Not bad, but it isn’t really a Geuze. Refreshing and light, yes. Better than Coca Cola.

2000: A light tart lemon flavor. Found it to be light and not really complex as far as gueuzes go. It’s fine.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2000 VERSION: A surprisingly fruity nose of lemons, green apple and strawberry. Fruit was also dominating in the taste. Not so complex or sour...or gueuzy for that matter, more like 2 fresh lambics mixed together than a blend of three different vintages. A cheap, accessable lambic. A beginners gueuze.

Light orange color with little head. Sour aroma, but not overwhelmingly so. Taste starts much the same, mostly apple, but there’s also some sweetness. Overall, a nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy medium-brown with moderate slick white head. Aroma is acidic, wine-grapey, some undeterminate estery fruitiness. Flavor is remiscent of one of the tarter apple varieties. Nice malt and yeast flavors upfront with a refreshing sweetness followed by a short, sour finish. Leaves the palate quickly.
