Bottle. First lambic/geuze ever. Bottle states 5% alcohol instead of the four percent mentioned here. Pours hazy dark golden, bronze even. Little yeast residue. Tiny head that disappears in seconds. Aroma of champagne, unripe red fruits and sour. Taste caught me off guard, but within a minute I got accustomed to the taste and boy it’s good. Hits the palate exactly like champagne. Then, unripe fruits, sourness, dryness and some sweetness comes in. Plenty of carbonation and oily. Very refreshing. Aftertaste is long. Dry and sour. Some sweet and sour remain for a long time and induces excessive saliva build-up. This is a style I’d like to explore.

Piwo butelkowe. W aromacie smród skarpety i octu. Kolor mętny brudny złoty, piana niska, lacingu brak, wysycenie wysokie. W smaku owoce cytrusowe, leciutki karmel, nuty wiśniowe i ogólnie dosyć kwaśne. Gdyby nie smród to byłoby całkiem pijalne ale podejrzewam że to wina danej partii.

Murku golden colour. Aroma of wine with a distinguishable funky note. Well carbonated, taste of fruit. Sweet with medium acidity. Good and refreshing, not too complex.

ClubGonzo (4020) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden body with a large creamy white head. Nose is straw, bready malts, mild horseblanket and hints of red berries, almonds and citrus. Taste is grains, bread, wheat, citric acid, sweet nougat and hints of red berries and straw. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Not bad, but pretty straightforward, a bit sweet and not too impressive. And what’s with adding ascorbic acid? The bugs should do that job...

09.09.2014, 0,375l bottle @ home:
Small fizzy shortlasting head. Aroma is kind of sweet sour-ish, sour winegum candy, soda powder, sugar, caramel, grass, hints of citrus. Taste is sour-ish, soda powder, sour grass, citrus acid, sugar, light malts, hay, sour winegum candy. Little bitterness, slightly harsh mouthfeel. Boring!

A nice amber colour. Very sour with a long finish, pleasant aftertaste. Refreshing overall. A classy beer.

Aroma: White wine, apples, lemon. Taste: Sour but not too much, white wine, fresh apple juice and candied sugar. Average carbonation and nice white head. Very refreshing but not so drinkable. Great beer. Price [Warsaw, Poland] 9PLN.

Butelka; Barwa jasnego bursztynu. Aromat owocowy, kwaśny, winny, cukru kandyzowanego. W smaku na początku jest słodkie a później coraz bardziej kwaśne.

maeib (8711) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Bottled 03/08/14. A greeny brown coloured beer with no head. A sweet and sour gueuze. Friendly but unexciting. Definite funk in the nose but it’s a little too sugary in the mouth. Nice enough but there are much much betters gueuzes.

Rosslew (209) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2014
Definitely a sour aroma. Taste of apples before the sour yeast comes through. Light in mouthfeel. Drink from wide mouth glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
