COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Foffern (1061) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 9, 2014
Bottle at home. Vintage 2011. Pours a slightly hazy golden straw colour with a big, off-white head. Fruity and sour aroma with horse blanket, rowanberries, citrus, sweet fruits, vinegar and forest floor. More citrus in the flavour with a slightly sweet and dry aftertaste. Has a slick and sour mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Is very carbonated. A decent gueuze, but I had expected more complexity in the taste.

Jarastlad (5) - Arlon, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2014 does not count
Interesting Floral and fruity aroma, distinctive Geuze taste, mixture of sweet, sour and slightly acid flavours. Very good Geuze I’d say !

fiammanghilla (421) - Genova, ITALY - APR 4, 2014
Bottiglia 37,5 cl @ birroteca sopra la media. Chiara con schiuma media persistente. Al naso profumo di mughetto. In bocca è acida ma non troppo, delicata e ritornano un po' di fiori secchi. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

Eructoblaster (2850) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle - 375ml. Hazy blond body with lively carbonation and a thick, diminishing, white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with green apple and herbal hints. Its fresh hoppy taste carries malty, herbal, and citrusy notes. Ends with a sharp sour finish. Good example of Gueuze.

dougdecinces (118) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Tasted this alongside 3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze, This one was good, but not nearly as complex and assertive as 3 Fonteinen. Flavors and aromas of lemon, vanilla, sweaty and barnyard funk.

Migmar (219) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Pale yellow with biggish head. Lemon, apple, yeast. Fizzy carbonation. Very sour, as expected. Very typical gueuze, bit like a hybrid of apple cider and white wine.
