375ml bottle at BenC’s semi-blind gueuze tasting - Pours hazy amber with a nice thick white head. Pretty tart nose, with white grapes, light vinegar, and citrus. Really smooth. Taste is a bit oaky and dry, with sharp tartness, citrus rind, and a saliva-inducing finish. Really smooth, with nice fluffy carbonation.

Granny smith apples, sharp cheddar, dank basement nose. Hazy amber, thick head with little retention. Very tart limey malt. Finishes with jolly rancher green apple, but not so sweet. Palatably tart, good flavor. Outstanding! A great compliment to country (salt cured and smoked) ham.

375ml bottle at city beer. Gold with a medium head and alight haze. Big lemon, sharp barnyard funk, dry earth, dust, and citrus pith aroma. Quite sour and dry flavor with a detain sharpness apart from the lactic acid that sets it apart from cantillon, which is the closest thing I have to a regular Gueuze. Well carbonated. Nice stuff. I’ll be interested to see where future blends go from here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted on 11/24/11 (Thanksgiving) from a corked and caged 375mL bottle purchased at Lush Roscoe, best before 01/03/2021. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head that quickly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is quite sour and tart with lemon peel, a nice dose of barnyard funk, burnt rubber, and a touch of white wine vinegar. The flavor displays some light cereal malt with tart and sour lemon, burnt rubber, and some barnyard funk. The body is light with lively, almost sparkling, carbonation, and a long, tart, funky finish. The nose on this beer is excellent, but the flavor is lacking some of the complexity that I have found on other beers of this style.

375mL bottle, purchased in South Bay. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color; nicely effervescent; creamy white head with good retention and lacing; a good-looking gueuze. Pleasantly funky, well-developed aroma, showing sour lemons and lightly salty bleu cheese; straightforward, mouthwatering. Medium-light body; effervescent CO2; vibrant on the tip of the tongue, plenty of acidity, showing lemons and grapefruit juice, light amounts of salt, and a mild cheesy funk; not the most intricate gueuze out there, but I couldn’t really care less when all the parts showing are delicious. Medium-length finish: lingering tartness, lemons, toastiness. A beautifully balanced gueuze; excited to see what’s ahead from these folks.

375, corked and baled. Pours a hazy bright golden orange with a loose scattering of fizzy white head. No lace. Big funky nose hits you even at arm’s length, even fridge cold. Pure sweaty saddle barnyard hogwallop. The funk is pretty volatile, though, and has a tendency to waft away over the course of a couple minutes after corking. It never dies off completely, but it dials way down. Then there’s some bright lemony zapping power under that, and it steps to the fore as the beer warms a bit. Fizzy bright light refreshing body, clean and easy to drink. Lemony bright pucker on the mid palate, with bits of wet hay and some barnyard funk. So clean and sweet and fresh and refreshing. Delicious gueuze. Great stuff.

Parket (569) - Bruges, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2011
75cl bottle shared, yellow/unclear colour with some white head - stable for a gueuze. Smell: some grapefruit, some malty notes, citrus, woody. Taste: not too sour as it should be, some bitter notes and a very small range of sweetness. A soft carbonation and long intense finish. I enjoyed this one! Great gueuze! Maybe it can become better within some years?

Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with a medium, white head. Tart, complex aroma with hints of citrus, earth, wood and green apple among others. Flavor is similar with the tart fruits most prominent. Awesome gueuze.
