A lot of bubblegum flavors in this one. Lemon acidity. Not the best for the style.

MrMeadMan (25) - Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Aroma was faint compared to the big bold flavors. Nicely tart and bitter, grapefruit-like notes, citrusy. Light carbonation adds a good mouthfeel. Very tasty!

Cunningham (5085) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2015
Unclear orange golden color with a fine white head. Acidic, mellow sour funky, green apples and some oak in the aroma. Medium body. A bit dry, balanced acidic and a moderate bitterness. Green apples, wood and a bit fruity flavor. Nice refreshing beer.
[Bottle from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge in Oslo, Norway]

beernbourbon (1355) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle. Pour is hazy copper with almost no head. Does seem to be carbonated. Aroma is lightly minerally and distantly funky with a touch of fruit and some light wood. Definitely carbonated with a light tart funk up front followed by light glue and then a transition to a buttery, woody, bitter flavor that lingers. Pretty light and drinkable overall but I don’t dig the finish.

Green Sour Apple, with a kick to the arse! Not for the weak hearted. Go for it' ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Franckg (204) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015
Bouteille datée de 2012. Dégustée après 2 ans. Arômes de lambics, chêne, pomme verte, citron et vin blanc. En bouche, c’est très doux et pas trop sûre. Des saveurs de pommes fermentées et de raisins parviennent aux papilles. Peut-être ce que j’ai pris pour le vin blanc au nez. Goût de pain mouillé en finale qui est d’ailleurs très brève. Bonne gueuse en général.

Wischylini (145) - Grimstad, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2015
Opens with a faint pop and a slow gushing. Pours clear amber with a small, but dense and lasting, white head. Aroma is lactic, cheesy, hay, lemons, dusty, and funky, fruity, esters, green apples, stale hops. Taste is moderately sour, and just a wee bit sweet - quite mild for a gueuze. The beer feels light and dry, and is somewhat sparkly, but not champagne-like, like some lambics tend to be.

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2015
The western Flemish version of lambic also has this attempt at an ’oude geuze’; rating from old notes, but this still exists, apparently. Hazy straw blonde under a medium, off-white head; ’mellow’ lactic acidity, cheese, sherry, wet hay, lots of fruity esters, sweeter, less complex and softer than the average Senne valley geuze, but still very funky, dry and credible. In fact, probably the most interesting Van Honsebrouck product around. Isolated case, very interesting.

Alexd8 (48) - Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 29, 2015
Légèrement ambrée et translucide, col absent, bulles fines. Boisé présent, sucre d’orge, nez acidulé. Cerise et kirsh, citron, lime et orange amère. Surette, carbonisation moyenne à faible, rétro de Sour Patch. Finale sèche, longueur acceptable et analyse analytique ... pas d’émotion ... pourtant bien fait. Merci pour la Gueuze, archétype de son style sans entrer dans l’histoire.

UXO (536) - CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
Pours slightly hazy pale amber with one finger of loose ivory head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (4/5) Nose is sour lemon, woody oak, mild dusty and cobwebby vinegar, slight funk. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderately strong tart. (7/10) Medium body, prickly carbonation, dry and tart finish. (4/5) A fairly plain gueuze - nothing exciting or complex, but decently well-behaved. The sour tartness is strongly pronounced, with restrained sweetness and mild cobwebby funk. (15/20)

Bottle, 375 ml from Svijet Piva, Zagreb. Pours unclear yellow with almost no head. sourish fruity aroma. Citrus and sourness in flavor.
