deepeary (237) - Ontario, - AUG 7, 2014
375 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear deep golden colour lots of carbonation and a thin white head and doesn’t last too long. Nose is layers of tart citrus, wine vinegar, sweet cherry, flowers, funkiness. Taste is dominated by the dry sour finish. I get lemons, cherries, wine, champagne. My first gueuze and I liked it.

gEUS (1320) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2015
375 ml bottle at home. Pours coppery golden with a faint head. Aroma is... sweet wood and pasteurised (very clear with commercial geuze), an unpleasant spiced green touch (cloves), cognac hints. Light body, some level of sourness but not as powerful as the real lambic beers, a tad tart towards the end. Pity this is positioned as a lambic beer while it isn’t;

UrbanCaveman (131) - Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2015
12.7 oz bottle, poured into a snifter at ~50 degrees F. Appearance: Pours a deep cloudy yellow-amber, and forms a thick white head with good retention. Smell: Musty hay and funky mildew, with hints of melon, pear, and wheat that seems still green and growing as opposed to golden and ready for harvest. Taste: The flavors open sharp and tart, heavy with citrus and melon flavors, and the sharpness does not relent as it goes along. Barnyard funk rolls through as the beer progresses, bringing along some wheaten grassiness and sour pear flavors. There are vague hints of pepper and some herbal spices that appear here and there as well. Mouthfeel: Light and quite carbonated, possibly adding to the sharpness of the sour. Overall: Quite an enjoyable gueuze, pure yeast ester flavors left unmolested by hops or excessive malt. I will repeat this one.

tandembrauer (400) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours amber with big, frothy off-white head. Aroma of horse stable, grass, citrus, flowers, perfume. Taste sour and tart, with horse stable, medicine, lemon, grapefruit, dust. Bitter medicine aftertaste. High carbonation.

Gerbeer (2161) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2015
375 ml bottle. Pours a deep clear copper with moderate head. Aromas of wet wood, limes, and light funk. Flavors of tart limes, brett, oak, and sour candy. Very nice.

MrMeadMan (33) - 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 (5150) - 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.

beernbourbon (1357) - 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.

Franckg (245) - 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.
