allmyvinyl (3351) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2014
375ml bottle from Beergusto. Pours clear orange gold, this white head. Aromas of stewed apples, light sandalwood notes. Taste is too sweet. I guess I don’t get the point of sweetening lambic. bitter, saccharine lingering aftertaste.

Lore (1064) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 2, 2014
dark golden colour, huge and dense off-white hea, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of yeast, earthy and fruity notes (mostly cherry); bitter-sourish taste with yeasty notes as well as hints of fruityness; very far from the best gueuzes, but still drinkable

Erzengel (2608) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
Säuerlicher Geruch mit süßem Unterton. Der Antrunk ist leicht säuerlich-holzig, wobei die zugefügte Süße sofort deutlich wird. Zum Hauptteil gibt sich dieses "Getränk" einerseits Gueuze-typisch säuerlich mit leichten Holz-Pferdedecken-Anklängen, andererseits nehmen Zucker & Süßstoff diesen tollen Aromen den Wind aus den Segeln. Zum Nachgeschmack hin nur noch bedingt nach Gueuze und etwas süßstofftypisch flach. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine Mischung aus holziger Gueuze und Süßstoff.
--> ok, da nicht komplette Chemie, aber überzeugend ists auch nicht sonderlich!

A gigantic lambic, you would feel the hops jumping to your nose, good flavour too.

Swaroga (1341) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2013
25cl bottle. Orange/brown with small head. Nose : Apple, tart, citrus, pear. Sip : medium carbonation. Low density. Sweet with fruity and tart notes. Gets a bit dry with green apple flavour. It leaves rather unpleasant aftertaste.

kevnic2008 (8060) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2013
Yellow pour with some head. Citrus lemony and the funk in aroma and taste. Nice clean finish.

Minderbinder (1795) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle 250ml @ Pub St-Alexandre. Pours ugly pale blond/golden with low beige head (well almost none). Aroma is of sugar, slight lambic (some barnyard). Sugar is dominating here. Taste is of slight wild yeast/barnyard, fruits, hard water, heavy sugar. Palate: Light-medium body. Overall: Not that repulsive, but too sugary, in a bad way. It’s supposed to be dry, and it’s not at all. I wonder what kind of "gueuze" it is, and what % of older lambic it contains. Still drinkable, but not really interesting.

tom10101 (2781) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle (250 ml) @ Pub St-Alexandre (Québec). Clear golden/amber with a small off-white head and little to no lacing. Aroma is sweet with light barnyard and brown sugar. Taste is moderately sweet with caramel and mild fruity notes... not barnyard here. Light to medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Slightly sirupy. Not dry enough for a Gueuze. Not as bad as I thought it would be... but still pretty bad. Too sweet for a Gueuze. No complexity.

17th IBBF - tap Golden clear, small foam; baynard(ish) yeasty aroma, little sour; soursweet taste; light body, little watery, moderate carbonation, short soursweet finish; Overall: not bad, quite refreshing, nice aroma and taste
