Nephilium (1445) - Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Poured into a goblet. Pours a clear straw, with a big fluffy white head that fades down to about an eighth of an inch. The aroma is sour apples, a touch of lemon, and a back end of dust. Nice sour flavor, with apples and lemons being the most noticeable. Moderately long finish, very crisp mouthfeel. Definitely something I want to pick up some more of, and see how it ages.

SinH4 (478) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Golden color with big white head. Nice funk and hay, lemony apples and good wood. The sourness is very balanced. Still easily drinkable. A great Gueuze.

jc1762 (124) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 19, 2015
Poured into a teku showing deep golden honey yellow with about two fingers of clean white foam. Hazy & cloudy, practically opaque. The nose shows a lot of sour brett with some heavy notes of barnyard and wet hay. The palate is highly carbonated and very light bodied. The first impression immediately shows a good but moderate tartness with strong barnyard & horse blanket flavors. Somewhat pickled/sauerkraut-like flavors in the mid palate with a return to the tartness on the finish. Drinks clean and easy.

PauloAG (70) - BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2015
375cc bottle. Beautiful hazy almost glowing orange with white champagne like head. Lovely noose, really fruity. Sour beer is not my type, but getting passed the sourness it reveals nice acidity. Finishes dry and crispy.

Vestergaard (598) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2015
37,5cl bottle. Pours an unclear, yellow amber with a small white head.. Aroma has lemon, leather, citrus peel, funk, "autocitron". Pretty sour. Taste is acidic, lactic sour, but with apple-sweet notes. Dry leather, tart, bitter-sour end. Medium high sourness overall. High carb and crisp body.

JBPortland (1003) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 3, 2015
750ml bottle 6/2012 vintage pours hazy pale yellow with a finger and a half of head. Nose is funk forward with lots of dusty cheese, mushroom, apple, weed. Taste is medium low acidity, crisp palate with some dusty barn wood, green apple, hayfield, weed, cheesy funk. Finishes dry with a tiny hint of apple fruit sweetness, old attic, tart. Nice solid gueuze.

jkwood04 (4317) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 1, 2015
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of light sourness and funkiness, some light malts, and hints of oak. Flavor the same with a nice blend but sort of metallic on the finish. Average texture. A pretty good beer but not the best of the style and could be more refined.

spacecube (1082) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2015
375ml bottle, light hazy gold pour, light malts with lemon notes and tartness, not massively sour, but plenty of brett notes giving the classic gueuze taste. Finish is very dry, tangy and light sour; Carbonation average to lively.
