A delicious gueuze. It’s hard to imagine NOT liking a beer of this style. Aroma was good. Wet blanket, dust and cheese. Pour was a nice medium gold with plenty of rising bubbles and a 2 finger white head. Taste was classic gueuze. Dusty, funky and musty with old hops and bitter vinegar flavor. Strong prickly carbonation with a sour aftertaste. Taste wasn’t as full as some others, but great nonetheless.

375 mL bottle into tulip. Pours golden yellow with a slight haze and little sediment. Aroma is strong of brett, funk and stale hops. Mouthfeel is full along with lots of carbonation. Flavor is very tart, puckers the mouth almost immediately, lots of brett, lots of funk!

Boutip (5583) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2010
Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey color gueuze with a large frothy head with excellent retention and some good lacing. Aroma of light acidic green apples with some subtle oak notes is better then I had anticipated. Taste is overall quite tart with a nice touch of granny smith acidity which provide a great refreshing factor. Oak is somewhat subtle with limited amount of funky ester. Body is quite full for style with great carbonation. I was expecting a sweeter version of gueuze based on what I tasted previously from this brewer but I must admit to being pleasantly surprised.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 22, 2010
Dark amber. Thin foam ring. Sharp wilderness aroma with wild herb, mushroom and cheese. Sharp refreshing beer with lots of life, in fact more zest and cheesiness than the Pepe I had earlier. Perhaps a touch too much sweetness.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Hazy, golden pour. Aroma of sour funk, green apple, lemon and yeast. Flavor is quite acidic, with big apple, lime, lemon zest and sour funk. Pretty standard.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle at Au Trappiste, Paris, France.
Pours a cloudy cheddar yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is stale barnyard Sprite and more hay and musty air. Flavor is striking lemon that fades into bailed hay stored in an old barn. Lingering mouthfeel. Very refreshing.

Tap at Toronado SF. Underwhelming gueuze, thy name is St. Louis Gueuze Fond Tradition. It’s fitting that this beer has the same name as one of the crappier cities in the US, St. Louis. Pours a fairly clear golden color with a small white head and average retention for the style. Aroma is pretty nice and typical for the style: sweet malt, funk, and vinegar. Flavor is very acetic for a gueuze and not as sour as I’d like. Funk is there as well as some wood. It’s enjoyable, but I’ve had way better. Decent mouthfeel, medium-bodied and only mildly acidic. Overall, I’m not a huge fan. Decent to drink, but if Cantillon is the major leagues, this is about Single A.
