The western Flemish version of lambic also has this attempt at an ’oude geuze’; rating from old notes, but this still exists, apparently. Hazy straw blonde under a medium, off-white head; ’mellow’ lactic acidity, cheese, sherry, wet hay, lots of fruity esters, sweeter, less complex and softer than the average Senne valley geuze, but still very funky, dry and credible. In fact, probably the most interesting Van Honsebrouck product around. Isolated case, very interesting.

Alexd8 (52) - Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 29, 2015
Légèrement ambrée et translucide, col absent, bulles fines. Boisé présent, sucre d’orge, nez acidulé. Cerise et kirsh, citron, lime et orange amère. Surette, carbonisation moyenne à faible, rétro de Sour Patch. Finale sèche, longueur acceptable et analyse analytique ... pas d’émotion ... pourtant bien fait. Merci pour la Gueuze, archétype de son style sans entrer dans l’histoire.

UXO (760) - CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
Pours slightly hazy pale amber with one finger of loose ivory head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (4/5) Nose is sour lemon, woody oak, mild dusty and cobwebby vinegar, slight funk. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderately strong tart. (7/10) Medium body, prickly carbonation, dry and tart finish. (4/5) A fairly plain gueuze - nothing exciting or complex, but decently well-behaved. The sour tartness is strongly pronounced, with restrained sweetness and mild cobwebby funk. (15/20)

Iznogud (1448) - CROATIA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle, 375 ml from Svijet Piva, Zagreb. Pours unclear yellow with almost no head. sourish fruity aroma. Citrus and sourness in flavor.

Apple cider looking pour. Good head, but gone quickly. As far as gueuze goes, this is fine but straight forward. Sweet and sour, plenty of acidic fruity notes. A little cobwebs and dust. Plenty enjoyable, but not transcendent.

Almost clear amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light, dry and crisp. Medium sourness. Wet wood, slightly dusty. Touch of dried fruits. Light dry finish. A bit over emphasised on the wet wood but okay.

jinroh (669) - ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2014
Had this months ago. Brownish, just as apple juice but more clear and witha clear thin foam layer. Aroma is sour, softly so but not too complicated. Lemon, sour, fermented. Taste is also quite nice and easygoing, light sourish drink that is nicely drinkable. Belgium comes in mind :) Finish is quite dry. Clean, citrusy geuze.

fellebag (1107) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2014
375ml bottle. Small white layer. Hazy light amber color. Aroma is roses, freshly cut lawn, strawberries. Taste is sour of yeast, wine and goosebeeries.

Bottle from the LCBO. Bright and very slightly hazy copper-leaning orange-gold with a thin white head. Aroma of slightly fermented lemon, peppery yeast, a slight dusty-funky backnote. Flavour is undeniably tart, but with a sweet tone to it as well, like SweeTarts candy. Notes of various sour fruits - sour apple, sour grapes, lemon - come towards the finish, along with a surprisingly pleasant brackishness right at the end. Not the most complex gueuze around, but still a very enjoyable and respectable one.
