The aroma has a great deal of yeast, along with some apple, and a vegetable-like scent. I taste more of the yeast in sipping. The beer is definitely sour, perhaps more than the other beers I’ve tried. The palate is invigorating, with an average-strength body. As my first gueuze that I’ve tried, this is a complex and interesting beer, yet I don’t know if I’m ready to drink gueuzes regularly.

I liked this. A little funk in the aroma. The body has a medium sourness throughout. Works for me.

bulldogops (1986) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2016
Rating #1797 - 2015 Farmhouse Fest UBC - Draught - Pours hazy golden with almost no head to speak of, like pear juice. Aroma of orange peel, lemon juice, and brett. Quite tart and juicy with a pronounced sourness - lingering acidity into the finish. Nice.

chromeotaphor (144) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2016
Zoet zurige ziltige aroma. Fris gouden kleur met een klein schuimkraagje. Smaak van een typische gueuze zurig ziltig maar zoetig. Een typische gueuze maar iets uitgesprokener in de zoete kant.

SeniorZozo (1153) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 4, 2016
Beermarket.hu Tasting session @ Budapest. Sour and sweet on the nose, almost a bit sherry like. Lovely and tart to taste with a touch of toffee on the finish. Very refreshing.

willisread (2268) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 28, 2016
375 ml bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a slightly hazy light copper with a finger of foam that dissipates fairly quickly. Pear and apple on the nose with some muscat notes early on. As it comes to room temperature lots of oak aromas dominate the nose with some wet hay and cobwebs. More of the same on the palate but the oak really stands out strong with some light vanilla. The fruit notes become muddled. Nice tartness throughout with good carbonation and a mostly dry finish. Nice on a hot, muggy night, but lacks the complexity of other gueuzes out there.

ninecats (479) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2016
Sample at En Öl- och whiskymässa, 2016. Fairly hazy orange, small white head with no retention. Aroma is woody, funky, vinegar, citrus, grass, slight sweet jam note. Taste is sour to tart, vinegar, citrus, brett, funk, slight sweet in the far back, byt mostly citric on the edge to vinegary taste. Medium to big body, low to zero carbo.

Kauge (1556) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle, shared by Phil - thanks! Hazy dark amber. Faint bandaid, apricot and other fruits on the nose. Sweet, farmhouse, acidic, would almost say vinegary, woody dry, apple peel taste/flavour. Strangely, some wasabi (chips) (no one agreed). Sticky in mouth, thin carbnation.

Ámbar turbio. Aromas de uva, manzana verde, cuero, brete. Cuerpo medio con sabor como en aroma, acidez redonda y final seco.

Rask0lnikov (649) - 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.
