Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours a pale golden body with a thin lacing. Sour citric notes,light lemon pucker with a low acidity. A lighter leather cork and slightly sour finish. Nice lambic, could have use a few more years perhaps.

Rusty (1543) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Bottle for $3 from Total Wine. Pours a hazy straw yellow to orange with a nice white head. Aroma is straw, grass, funk, acidic sourness, lemon zest, vinegar, grapes, and mold. Flavor is earthy, lemony tartness, dirt, muddy water, old socks, leather, wood, asprin. Very dry and not as sour as some of the other similar gueuze i’ve had. Decent Gueuze at a decent price.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Looks ok... wow aroma is just awful. I cant quite put my finger on it, but its like salty, sweet, smoky. Harsh acidic mixed with residual sweetness... yuk. The body might be ok though/

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle from Village Beer Merchant. Pours a dull, hazy orange/brown body with a fizzy white head into a tumbler. Aroma is very yeasty, vinegar with some light citrus notes. Flavor is immediately sour grapes, then mellows out somewhat the uncover some fruity tartness. Medium bubbly MF. Musty earthy finish. This is my first experience with this style and yea i know "don’t rate to style"... whatever. Suprisingly drinkable once you get past the sourness. I’m excited to enter the world of gueze, which many others seem to love some much. Hopefully it grows on me.

Pours hazy yellow with small white head, it whiffs fruity aroma with note of banana. It is freshly sour and very tasty, very enjoyable.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 3, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 375ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a cloudy orange color with a fair size white head that slowly dissipates to a fine film. The aroma is sour with horseblanket and old socks. The flavor is overtly sour with sour grapes, sour oak and sour hay. The palate is malty with an acidic quality, and the carbonation is soft. The finish is long and sour. Overall: A very tasty lambic.

auerbrau (3182) - 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 (6308) - 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.
