zacgillbanks (3090) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy golden coloured with a very sharp lemon and citrus flavour, zesty tart sugary fruit flavours, cider-like notes followed by an extremely dry biscuit and fruit finish.

NordicV (1366) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2015
Dimmig persikofärgad öl med ett mycket lätt vitt skum. Doften är fruktig med aprikoser och persikor tillsammans med en lättare syrlighet. Detta återkommer i smaken. Mer en sour ale än en gueuze.

FatPhil (10663) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 7, 2015
375ml bottle (Zmogsala 2015, Vilnius)
Lovely sweet fruity aroma. Sweeter than a geuze should be, but very nice. Nice sweet body, but witha decent sour lambic bite. Very much not a geuze, but a nice sweet malty ale. Nice apricot hints, and a touch of acidic sourness.

PartyFowle (584) - - JUN 2, 2015
Draft. Apricot-hued with blurriness throughout. A thin layer of white fuzz becomes a thin ring quickly. Odd aroma: vinegar paired with grass, horsey funk with lemon peel. Peach and pear are noticeable atop a splash of Easter egg dye. Lemony tartness stirs the flavor, backed up with minty hops, a bit of barnyard funk, vinegar and light pear syrup. Good fruity sweetness to balance the tart funk. Salty finish. Medium body; moderate fizziness; high, pinching carbonation. Sweeter and hoppier than most gueuzes. Strange but good.

bnokk (188) - Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2015
APPEARANCE - dark yellow color. Fairly turbid. NOSE - sour all the way. Light ambiguous fruit scent comes with it. I’m not getting much hop scents. FLAVOR - solid sour flavor owing to its lambic-ness. Not expecting much hop flavor considering dry hoping, and I’m not disappointed.

crossovert (9084) - Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Draft. Golden pour. Not quite what I think of with geuze but has a nice lemony citrus note like a true gueze.
