11/7/07 From the bottle. Aroma is of tart banana, paintlike, with sour lacticacid , buttery, earthy and oaky. You couldn’t fit any more in here. Appearance is light hazy straw with a medium white head. Flavor is earthy, but still clean, with a tart finish. This is quite well balanced, but has a light nail polish note and low bittering. Mouthfeel is medium/light bodied, spritzy, dry and warm. Overall, very complex, not as earthy or dusty as I expected; quite well balanced for a sour.

Whoa Nellie...I can smell this stuff from several inches from the glass...who let the wet horse in the house!! Gold color, small head. Aroma of persimmon, lemon, pluots, straw, wheat, nectarine, peach, and barnyard funk. Significant carbonation...a mix of sweet, sour, dry and funky flavors...not as smooth as the Girardin but intriguing and tasty. My bottle says good till 2026!

Courtesy of Mcbackus. Pours a cloudy orange with white foamy head. Hints of sour fruits, spices, yeast, and more sour fruits. Finishes very tarty, but easy to drink. Very impressed with this style of brew.

cloudy orange gold with massive white head (plenty of foam). Tart nose with some lactic acid. Faint funk and very sour body.

This is a nice dry tart Gueuze. these aren’t easy to find varieties of Gueuze in MN. It has that flavor unique to western Belgian lambics and a crisp clean finish wth a little hint to walk away with.

Bottle: A sour and tart smell is strong and soon as the cork was pulled. Light hints of fruity tartness and sourdough bread. The pour is a cloudy golden with many particles and a huge white head. Taste is dry and tart, a little sour and tangy. Dry, puckering finish.

Dogbrick (11490) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2007
This beer is a murky orange color with flakes of sediment in the bottle and glass. Thin white head that diminishes slowly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Tart fruity aroma with some dusty and earthy malt. Medium-bodied with a tart apple character and light coriander and yeast flavors. The finish is dry with green apple and oak flavors and it leaves behind a lingering citrus and spice aftertaste. Overall this beer is pretty enjoyable.

Stew41 (1933) - Phuket, THAILAND - OCT 28, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2012 January 2005 bottling. Another beer very well suited to drinking from a wine glass. Body is murky pale gold with a dull orange core. Big winey, vinegar, stinky aromas with sweet and sour notes. Good depth. Sharp, prickly palate with high-fizz, sour wine fruits, some bitterness. Good driving length and sour finish.

This has been and always be my favorite geuze. As I sip the bottle from my hotel room in Brussels, I am reminded how important this beer is to the history of Brussels. The aroma is powerful with hints of lactic and Brett that remind me of all the complexities of this beer. The beer bone dry with a good biting acidity that comes alive with all of the carbonation in the mouth. The brewer closed down in 2003, but opened up and are starting a revival of sorts. They are making a wonderful triple to help get the lambic side of things going again. The color is of straw with lots of effervensce and a slight whippy white head. The taste is amazing with so many layers and depth. There is citrus, hay, wet horse, wool and a soft malt character that is there for those who choose to dig deep into this beer. The finish is dry and grainy/bready with a zesty sour note. It is a must try even if only to keep this tiny brewery alive !!!!!

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2011 Gorgeous hazy lovely golden color with an amazing lasting head, longer lasting than expected esp for a gueze. Body doesn’t carry far back onto the palate and is a little thin and watery for me but that also makes me want to drink it all day. Excellent balanced aromas and flavors that convey grain character and not just sour funk. Lemony, tart, and not at all sweet but minimal funk and minimal acidity. Musty apple juice Very accessible.
