Finwe (412) - Grankulla, - SEP 15, 2012
370ml bottle @ Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours hazy pale golden yellow with a white head. Sour, pungent aroma with acidic fruits and fermented hay. The flavour is quite sour as well, with the taste specific to Brettanomyces. A hint of grassy hops in the otherwise sour finish.

Ragnampiza (499) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - OCT 23, 2014
375 ml bottle (2010/2011 written on the neck label) from Les Vignerons. Dark golden yellow, perfectly clear, with a small, creamy and moderately persistent white head. Pungent and perfumy, but it’s very hard to describe the aroma, so many components are still unknown to me. Sour black cherries definitely, generic fruits under spirit, bubblegum and lots of leather. A hint of oaky and woody notes as well. Lactic upfront, slightly astringent and then pretty damn tart. I’m not sure if the correct word is tart or sour, but it feels more tart to me. Nice zinginess on the palate, making it relatively easy to drink. Solid and spot on dryness. The aftertaste really linger forever. Fruity, slightly puckering and tart. Lively carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Very interesting and tasty.

When I met a young Wallonian guy in Brussels in 2007, a friend of Yvan De Baets of the Brasserie de la Senne, and he told me he intended to start a lambic brewery, I was admittedly a bit sceptic. But he persisted and see, here was the first result, since May 2011, a geuze initially only made with Lindemans, Boon and Cantillon lambics. Cream white, stable head, hazy orange blonde colour. The aroma has all the funkiness, esteriness and complexity you would expect from a true geuze, with hay, gooseberry, wood, green apple, wine vinegar, sweat, sour cream, barnyard... Mellow fresh sour taste with refreshing lemon touch, quite soft mouthfeel with less sharp carbonation than usual for the style, tart, complex enough and finishing long and dry with woody hints. Has further improved since then and now stands equal to all the traditional geuzes we know and love.

eduardovl (871) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
375ml bottle served in a tulip glass. Best before 05.03.2022. A: Nice bottle art. Simple but beautiful label in a corked bottle. Pours a hazy orange color forming a small, bubbled and quite fizzy white head. Medium to small retention and only very few lacings left in the glass S: Very fruity in the nose. Strong notes of apples, pears, white grapes. Apple vinegar, pale malts and a quite earthy and metallic Lambic end T: Funky, dry and sour. Very fruity. Strong notes of green apples, pears, green grapes. Sour. Notes of pale malts. Dry and sour end M: Light body. Good carbonation. Sour and very fruity aftertaste O: Excellent drinkability. Excellent Gueuze. Classic [ BA Review @ 6/13/2014 ]

Klimaet (222) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2014
Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Aromas of tart green apples, slight vinegar and some yeast. Taste is very sour up front, green apples and more vinegar. Slightly yeasty. Great balanced textbook gueuze!

BE CAREFUL WHEN OPENING THIS! I untwisted the cage and set it on my desk. Before I could even touch the cork, it shot off with a loud POP and hit my ceiling. This is a review of the 2013-2014 bottle. Appearance: Hazy darker shade of orange with a light white film of bubbles on the surface. No lacing. Smell: I get this odd smell of popcorn. It is followed by a familiar musty cellar smell. Kudos for having something new...never smelled popcorn in beer before. Taste: Strong sour apple flavor, like green Jolly Ranchers. Quickly this is taken over by funky old house...if that were a flavor. Then I get some of the popcorn. Mouthfeel: Very dry and tart feeling. A sipper. Overall: It’s a very good Gueuze that already tastes like it has a good deal of age on it. While it’s possible to drink it fresh, It has a "best before" date of 08/01/2024 on the bottle. I will revisit this beer somewhere down the line when it has aged out some more. That "popcorn" flavor and aroma is very strange. It doesn’t taste bad, it just tastes odd. Un-aged I would not drink another bottle.

rosenbergh (7090) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2014
750 ml bottle. 6%. BB 11/12/2020. From a webshop long time ago.
Cloudy slightly reddish golden colour with a tiny white head. Vinegar, red berries, tartness, sourness and leather in the aroma. The flavour is very tart and sour... redcurrant and mild vinegar. Tasty. Mouth-watering.

MotherBrother (728) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2014
Pour hazy light orange, with a huge semi frothy white head. Aroma is nice mix of funk, barnyard, brett, citrus, slight pear peel. Taste is pretty sour, but nicely complex. Medium bodied, with a fizzy carb.

spacecube (892) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
750ml bottle, Pours hazy golden brown, a bit of red, with a small white head. Classic gueze yeast aromas, very funky and sour, but this this has great balance with ittle astringency, lively carbonatin, very dry on the finish.

ForlornHope (69) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2014
37.5 cl bottle at home. 2011 bottling. Cork escapes with explosive force, pours with some effervescence. Aroma is not a harsh as some gueuzes, more fruity but with some mustiness. Appearance is hazy amber with a nice small white head. Taste is excellent, sharp and sour, lemony bith a dry bitterness. Good body, quite high carbonation. Finish is long and dry with some tart berry fruit. Overall a fine gueuze, not as astringent as some but very drinkable.
