Hopmaestro (481) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2015
Aroma is sour and earthy. Taste is fruity and malty with a super barn taste. Let us keep it short here. This is a killer gueuze!

King_Alex_II (643) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 1, 2015
Clear golden color with a pretty foam head. Sour lambic funky smell with less cheese and feet than other gueuzes have. Little over carbonated, with a fresh sour funky taste and a cheese note. The aftertaste is dry and leaves a sourish taste and an almost tart hint. The beer is a bit over ambition in its carbonation. The side flavors don’t develop very much, but this is still an awesome drinking beer, since it’s not insanely complex.

Golden brown colour, cloudy with a slight off white head. Vinegary sour nose, slightly sparkling in the glass. Sour to taste, a little banana on the finish.

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2015
Regular 37,5cl bottles, latest sampled bb04/2033. Thirst quenching, young and green apple-inflected Oude Geuze, offering fresh lemonade and cider spritz instead of complex funk or bretty depths. Musty aroma, pollen and lemin blossom stored in a damp cellar, atop fresh Granny Smith juice and lemonade. Young cheese rind, whey connects lactic elements in aroma and the dry juicy aspects of taste. Mouthfeel as ever very quenching and champagne-spritzy. Now that it’s more widely available in larger supermarkets, certainly the go-to all-purpose Oude Geuze - curious about what the 6% will do in aged samples over 3yrs.

chromeotaphor (104) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2015
Fruitig aroma van appels veeel kersen. Prachtig zacht en romig qua geur. Flink bruisend en een felle bubbelachtige kraag. Komt fel en penetrerend binnen bruisend binnen, vrij wild van smaak voor een geuze. Komt als een felle champagne binnen. Smaak doet aan een fruitige witte wijn denken. Houtige (felle) rokerige klassieke smaak en felle zuurgraad. Erg bijzonder. Jammer dat er een onaangename houterige zuurgraad aan zit dien lang blijft.
