sitzds (261) - - 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.

Orange clear, light white head. Dark berry, peppery spiciness. Spicy with some bitterness and sourness. Very dry while still quite fruity. Lighter body, very acidic, effervescent. Nicely balanced, pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Note: Iíve been holding on to this one, not for a special reason, just never came around to opening it. Opportunity knocked when I had a female US Couch Surfer coming over, claiming she especially liked Belgian sour ales. Well, thereís something you donít hear every day.

Taste: bit lemony, metallic touch, bitter, pretty sour, lemony, bit funky. Aftertaste: very sour, lemon peel, little bitter, funky edition.

ogivlado (5402) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottled 375ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Cloudy golden coloured, small off-white head, dry and sourish fruity nose. Pleasant sour gueuze taste with notes of wood, barnyard and maybe apples. The finish is sweeter that should be and pretty dry. Really interesting and quite good brew.

Crystalline lemon yellow pour with a negligible head. Nose is citric, with an umami undertone. Taste is a general tart, with few individual notes standing out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (1983) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Pours a chill hazed golden yellow on tp with thick off-white hed that leaves great lacing. Aroma is awesome funk with sour fruit and barnyard hay. Taste is funky awesome sour with hint of sirt and sweetness. Very nice, much better than their framboise.

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2014
375ml bottle from Binnys South Loop (Chicago, IL). Purchased this a long time ago and finally looked at it and said "Why not?". Pours a well hazed golden orange hue, darker body shows some deeper glowing colors, well hazed with a smaller white head atop that stays as a soapy ring, laces ok. Aromas show some decent funk and oak, cobwebs meet more grainy fresh cut grass and straw, touches of citrus, lactic yogurty feel come on more as it settles down a bit. Touches of horseblanket, wet oak, and gentle green apple play a bit more. Initial is more sour and potent than anticipated, some lemony vibrant sour acidity hits the palate with green apple, yogurt and straw coming in quickly. A bit sharp on the palate and clunky, unrefined as we show more funk, sweat socks and rubbery elements hit the bready malt, more oak presence as we start moving on. A bit sweet as we keep moving, the sweetened yogurty feel hits with pear, green apple, and a bit harsh as we turn the corner. There is certainly a lot going on here, making this one feel a bit disjointed overall. The finish is a touch more dry and oaky, but the beer really doesnít flow all the well, harsh at times and without much flow. The acedic character up front that trails off seems unrefined overall. This was certainly an interesting beer, but with so many better and refined Gueuze offerings available, itíd be silly to buy much more of this I think. Itís not a bad beer, but it just seems messy when compared to others.

NikkTwist (1390) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Draft at Eulogy. Cloudy orange brown pour with a marshmallow white head. Tart and funky. Some dark fruit. Fuller body than expected but the flavors are not that extraordinary for a proper Gueuze.
