Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2004
The aroma is fruity and sour and a little old. The color is a clear orange and it has a beutiful lasting head. The flavor is nicely sour with woody notes - it has a crisp dry finish. A great Geuze. Too bad they had to close.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2005
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Hazy, orangey golden beer with a fairly decent head. Tart and citrusy indeed, but for a traditional gueuze this is almost smooth and soft and almost easy to drink. But then of course it hasn’t got quite the same complexity as the more extreme gueuzes. Still an experience though. 110700

oh6gdx (20387) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2007
Bottled. Hazy golden colour, mediumsized white head. Sour fruits and yeast. Acidic footsweat along with sour fruits and acidicness. Flavour is quite the same, and is a very superdry thing. Some slight metallicness showing also, yet it is very wellbalanced. Hardcore thing.

omhper (19435) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2002
Pale yellow, hazy. Vinuous aroma. Very dry with well balanced acidity. Complex, subtle flavours, including a hint of blue cheese. An outstandingly well balanced example of the style. Sheer world class!

Cloudy orange beer. Dry palate. Sour earthy nose. Tart dry citric grapefruit and orange with an earthyness that grounds it. Not overwhelming lemon acid so drinkable.
