sitzds (318) - - JAN 21, 2014
On tap at Beachwood BBQ poured into footed tumbler. Appearance is orange-gold with some cloudiness, a thin ring of bubbles, and a few spots of lacing. Aroma is tart citrus, barnyard funk, cider vinegar, and some green apple sweetness. Taste is briefly sweet citrus, quickly replaced by tart vinegar and lemon sourness. The funkiness is there, too, but less than the nose indicated. Medium body, thin texture, active carbonation, crisp, drying, puckering finish.

Rask0lnikov (566) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 24, 2016
750 ml bottle. Thank you, FatPhil. Bit hazy, dark yellow colour. Modest white head. Notes of white wine and vinegar, sourness, slight fruitiness, hints of citrusses in the aroma. Hints of apples at first. Cider-like crisp. Hinra of vinegar in the middle. Sourness, wood, hints of berries in the end. Rather light bodied, medium carbonation. Quite good geueze.

750ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Hazy amber color. Small size, white head, stays as a ring. Sweet, fruity, acidic, ice, faint tobacco, woody, apples in aroma. Acidic, sweet, fruity, apples in taste. Acidic apples and sweet in aftertaste. Acidic mouthfeel. Some wood too. And some spicyness. Drinkable brew.

heavy (2569) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 15, 2016
Jan. ’16. A 0.375 l bottle. 5% ABV. It poured amber to orange body with a big head. Typical lambic yeasty apple aroma, sour wine, other fruits and light wood. Flavor was lightly sour, cidery, lemon, honey, wood, apricots maybe. Medium body with long, tart berry and apple finish. Okay, a pleasant lambic, although nothing special indeed.

750ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Smells of woody sharp cider, some old schooldesks. Thin palate, crisp and sharp. Less interesting taste, pleasantly sharp, but dullish. Lacking depth, lacking bredth too. Sharpness builds up, that bit I do like. But something lacking in this geueze - it needs to reach out and grab me more, to dance on my tongue.

500ml bottle from Sonoma Cellars in Oconomowoc, shared with bananabi11. Sour. Tangy. A nice oakiness. Somewhat carbonated. Has that light spritzer from the gueuze line. Tasty, just quite sour. 13.8

Panzerfaust (784) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 26, 2016
37,5 cl bottle from Beervana. Pours a clear golden color with orange-ish hues and a medium white frothy head that shows good retention and laces pretty well. Aroma is quite strong. Heavy barnyard/funky aromas dominate with some fruity touches. Notes of funk, horse blanket, white grapes, muscatel, sparkling wine, lemon and lime. Strong. Taste is quite sour with mild fruity flavors. Not as intense as the aroma, it is however, well refined. Fresh grapey and grapefruity flavors mixed up with sour milk and tart funkiness. Interesting. Light bodied, dry, refreshing, spritzy and champagnoise. Akin to a good white wine or a sparkling wine. My first approach to somewhat "true" Gueuze.
