podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2013 12.7 oz. bottle at BXL East, 2011/2012 vintage. Pours lovely reddish tinted gold with effervescent white head. Aroma of funky horseblanket sourness. Taste is sour and acidic and funky but has an incredibly smooth finish. Excellent gueze. Lovely finish. Really terrific.

tomer (2733) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 18, 2016
At a tasting, many thanks, smallish bubbly head, hazy dried apricot orange color, aroma of apples, sour bread vanila and oak, seems young, flavor of sour fruit wood and vinegar, quite strong but mellow sourness. Highly drinkable and Pure enjoyment.

Mjp12 (1264) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016
Blend of 2014-2015 , fantastic spicy yeast aroma , with some straw like funk. Light carbonation gives a lemon fizz on the tongue, with a gentle, but long lasting bitter finish.

Melker (249) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2016
Blend of 11/12. Bought it back in 2012. Not a big fan of geuze but this was great. Aroma of apple, herbs, barnyard, lemon. Sweet upfront, really dry and of course tart in the aftertaste. Complex. Just enough carbonation.

Zilverenmaan (4) - Schoten, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2016 does not count
Aroma pleasant and typical of the style, albeit a bit soft to the nose. Appearance very hazy with thin, quickly disappearing white head. Remaining yeast sticking to the cork as if the bottle was kept horizontal, tilted down even. Taste only mildly sour, bitter aftertaste dominates, less complex than most gueuzes. More carbonated than most gueuzes too. Not the sour, mildly carbonated sensation I assosiate with the style (of which I am a big fan) After the carbonation has disappeared however, the taste improves: softer and more sour, aftertaste less bitter. Still not complex though. Maybe best to be drunk rather at room temperature than at cellar temperature ( winter).

ajnepple (4702) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2016
3 oz pour at Hops & Pie. Sour and dry with rustic yeast, oak and light earth in the aroma. Similar flavor, adding a tart, light puckering feel with a crisp finish. Solid gueuze, I think I prefer there draft version though.

jerohen (2151) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2016
Bottled, no idea where i got it from. Cloudy dark golden colored, lasting white head. Beautiful lambic nose, horseblanket, farm, tartness, yeast. Dry flavor, moderately acidic (for a gueuze), yeasty notes, funky, but still pretty clean. Not the most complex gueuze, but very well balanced.

Stoned99 (1014) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2016 375ml 2012 bottle from the trade. Aroma: nice dusty fruity nose. Lemon is prominent here with some apples in the background. App: cloudy copper, medium white head with good retention and great lacing. Taste and palate: light body, moderate carbo, soft on the palate, light sweetness, medium lingering acidity finish. Overall: damn good! To me the palate is the perfection. Not too sweet, not too acidified and so refreshing. Can’t wait to taste the Prune de Namur that is waiting for me in my beer cellar.

Gbgbrouge (375) - SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2016
Poured from bottle (2013-14), clear gold with a frothy medium head. Aroma is that of fine champagne with a touch of barnyard. Taste is bubbly for sure with a carefully balanced path between sour and sweet with a touch of bitterness carefully hidden. What a beer!

The_Osprey (5466) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2016
375ml cork and cage bottle at home in Richmond as ’Oude Gueuze Tilquin à l’Ancienne’, 6.4%, bottled Feb 2014, pretty aggressive gush. Vibrant dark orange, opaque, sparkling, big dense foamy off-white head endures. Aroma is airy and light until it warms. Some lemon, caramel plastic, copper. Body is light, foamy, tingly carbonation. Taste is tart with lemonade, Tangfastics, light acidity with some metallic notes. Improved as it warmed. A good gueuze, but not top-tier on this showing.
