auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 29, 2009
On tap at Track 84 - Warwick, RI. A rich, tangy peach, nectarine and plum citric acid blasts forth from the nose, deepening into lactic and aged funk. Bright and acidic. Pours a brilliant beer gold, with a sharp peach glint of light and some opalescence. Flavor is just as rewarding as the aroma. Strong curt acidity pairs with chewy breadiness in the malt character. A prickly, fresh bubbling carbonation carried the strong pale fruits forward. A wonderful sipper. Delightful.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Bottle served at Ginger Man in NYC. The beer pours a beautifully hazy salty grey/orange body with bubbly white champagne like head. Aroma is light and tart. The taste is sour and tart, yeast, some funk, a a bit of aged lemon peel... overall very compliant. Very bubbly carbonation really help this beer out. Fun to drink, very bright. As a whole this beer is well balanced and a fine example of the style.

jredmond (5320) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2011 Bottle served at Ginger Man in NYC. The beer pours a beautifully hazy orange body with a decent white head. Aroma is light tart. The taste is sour and tart, but after sampling the Ommegang Rouge my palate has been slightly dulled. However, this lambic tastes extremely well balanced, with a great mouth feel and a tart flavor that doesnt go over the top. RERATE: Sampled at RnH with Streets. The sour and tart notes are much more restricted after having other gueuzes to compare to. The mouthfeel is balanced, but not spectacular.

Elwood (3153) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Serving: 375 ml bottle. Appearance: Cloudy with an effervescent white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma: Potent yeast and vinegary funk. According to my girlfriend, it smells like my sour feet. Nice! Taste: This is one sour bastard. Behind all that sourness are yeast, sweat, and light sweet notes. There was a slight band aid note in there too. It was tough for me to get much else out of this one. Palate: High carbonation with a light mouthfeel and a short finish. Overall: There wasn’t anything here that particularly wowed me. Rebuy: I will re rate this once I get more experience with Gueuzes. I think I haven’t had enough to truly enjoy this beer’s subtleties.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Bottle. Hazy amber pour with a tall fluffy white head. Aroma is strong sour fruit, sweat, cat urine, and funky yeast. Lots of farm-type aromas as well - hay, wet straw, manure, etc. Taste is lemon, sour fruit, funky yeast, wet book, damp earth, salty sweat, urine notes, and horse blanket. Not as tart as Cantillon, but this still brings it. Body is light and very bubbly while being near bone dry and very acidic. Ends with more lemony tartness, big yeast, urine, sweat, funk, earthy notes, damp wood, old, musty books and gym socks. A whole lot better than I thought it would be and downright sour!

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Appearance: Pours a dark orange with on a white ring around the top. The body is rather cloudy, and you will only see an occasional bubble rising to the top. Aroma: Light soury funk. Taste: Lemon, plum skin, funk and a slight woodiness. Mouthfeel: Fizzy. Overall: A refreshing gueuze with subtlety.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 19, 2009
375ml bottle. Lightly hazed light orange with a lasting frothy head. The aroma is mellow on the funk, with some wood, lemon zest, and some lemon cake frosting. Dry and tart, with a light malt body and cereals in the finish. Light bodied and spritzy. Simple and to the point, but quite nice.

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Bottle thanks to andrew. Pours a clear orange with a yellow white head. Sugary earthy funky dirty aroma that’s odd and not too enticing. Citrus dirty earthy flavors with citrus rinds. Bitter dirty finish ... kind of a mess.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Hazy golden color with a dissipating, somewhat fizzy, big bubbles, off- white head. Aromas of pale malt, petunia blossoms, candi and apple peel, with hints of hop sack aromas. Nice feel with a little prickle. Light oak and grape peel flavors. Not much complexity in the flavors. Lightly citric in the finish.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Red tinted orange pour with a fluffy white head. Surprisingly weak aroma. Some woody and sour citrus notes. Very sour funky flavor. Woody and earthy notes with citrusy lemon. Very pungent vinegar aftertaste. I found that aftertaste a bit unpleasant and for me it ruined what would otherwise have been an excellent gueuze.
