magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle, 375ml. Pours a hazy orange with a big white mostly-dissipating head. Smells of citrus, sweet, brett, and barnyard. Tastes a heavy sour, medium sweetness, and mild bitter. Highly acidic, and finishes quite tart. Medium body. Oily texture.

Joakgust (1334) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle, 375 ml - Clear golden beer with a very small white head. Aroma is tart with notes of hay, wheat, citrus fruit and barnyard. Flavor is acidic and tart with notes of grapefruit, wheat, leather and cereal. Very enjoyable gueuze, strongly recommend to try it with some stilton!

Bottle shared by Ryan. Very tasty indeed! Great sour funk aroma with hints of lemon. Tart sour flavor that makes the cheeks pucker. Delicious.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle, half champagne sized. Pours a clear golden, with a finger of a rapidly fading blond head. Superfresh funked up fruit aroma, reminiscent of freshley squeezed lemon, or lemon peel, and hint of dried horse manure. Taste is utterly tart. Nice fruity tart, that is. There is also a very pleasant citrussy acididiy. Some subtle residual sugars can also be noticed. Lingering tart finish. This is really good stuff!

A rating for an early bottling version with 1 and 2 year old blend only. Usually treated as separate entries on ratebeer. Another rating will be added for the 1, 2, 3 year old blend when I drink one of my bottles
In short: A classy, dry and complex citrusy Gueuze that is not too intensely sour/acidic. Wow!
How: Bottle 750ml. One of the early bottling from 2011 (1 year + 2 year lambic). Consumed when approximately 8 months of age
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by a persistent small white head
In long: Nose is not the most intense but it is all I want from a Gueuze aroma, barnyard, rustic, funk, horse blanket. Aroma does not indicates much acidity or sourness. Taste offers a lot of funk and citrus fruits, plenty of hay, grapefruits and lemons acidity, barnyard. Very dry. Very classy, mass-market friendly because not too sour or acidic and also very complex to satisfy the Gueuze connoisseur. As a lambic drinker I used to prefer the most intense examples of the style, but as years pass I am more and more drawn to more classy and easy to drink offerings of the style like this one. This is clearly one of the top gueuze out there. A friend proposed to have a blind tasting, but what’s the point really, I’m sure I would prefer the more tender Stevie Wonder over Andrea Bocelli

ContemplateBeer (1989) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Quite floral aroma with some white grape, tart pear and a bit of mustiness. Appearance is well carbonated gold body with bubbly white head, which did dissipate quite quickly. Flavor matches the nose with a long lemony tart finish; the mustiness is accompanied by a slight cheesecloth note. Palate is very bubbly and builds up to effervescence. Quite good, and very bright Gueuze; this will only get more refined over the next few years.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2013 Wow! Working in the wine business, if I were served this Gueuze during a blind tasting (poured in a black glass), this could mislead me to a great Chardonnay like a Meursault of a young vintage. Almost not bubbly, very round and complex, with a long lasting finish helped by a perfecly balanced acidity. Best Gueuze I’ve ever had!

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2012
375ml bottle poured into a tulip. Appearance is a hazy orange with a small white head. Good head retention but no lacing. Aroma is funky barnyard but there is also some citrus in there notably lemon, orange, and raspberry. There is also a touch of oak. Taste is quite a bit more citrusy than some of the other gueuzes I have tried. Orange and raspberry are there almost on a level playing field with the barnyard notes. A dry oakiness comes in strong on the finish. Tartness is quite prevalent throughout imparting a lemony character. Finish is dry but not quite as dry and clean as I would have liked. Overall this is a decent gueuze but not the best I have had. There isn’t enough funk and it doesn’t finish quite dry enough. It isn’t bad though and I probably would get it again.
