Frothmeister (709) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours a clear caramel colour with a thin tan head. On the nose, tart apple, sour cherry, light citrus, and candy-like notes. Taste wise, lighter bodied with sour cherry, dry apple cider like notes, and a light musty note that leads into watery domestic malt, a light hit of "barnyard", a faint bit of cinnamon in the finish, more of the mildly tart apple cider notes and a big bready/yeasty note in the bitter finish. Itís not complex at all. Itís sort of like the Coors Light of lambics, which is a good thing, because sometimes you donít want a bottle of puckering acid for yourself. Itís super refreshing, and there is enough going on to make it interesting. In the world of Gueuze, this isnít great, but overall in the world of beer I would take this over a lot of other mediocre brews.

Hopverdju (551) - BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2016
Koperkleurig bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: wat zweetvoetgeur (overjaarse hop). Smaak: medicinale siroop. Iets sprankelende koolzuurprikkel, weinig body. Afdronk: licht zurig. Dit geuze? Geef mij maar hun Fond tradition.

RW80 (1907) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2016
25cl Bottle at home Appearance: Murky golden with a small white head. Arroma: Sweet, sugar, apples, bread, phenols light funk. Taste: Sweet, vegetables up front, phenols, bread,apples some funk. Below average bodiy, with light bubbly carbonation. Too Sweet, Maybe time can improve things, in the other case stick by Fond Tradition version, which is great.

sjogro (2299) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle at home as "Premium Gueuze Lambic". Murky hazel colored with thin white head. Aspartame and cardboard. Some grapelike fruitiness, but very little. A faint sourness in the background. Meeehhh.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a slightly veiled orangeish pale amber with a short lived white head. Aroma is unripe fruit, caramel and sour. Flavor is fruits, caramel, cherry, red apple. Loads of sugar. Finish is light tartness. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Did not feel much like a lambic or gueuze.

Iím a fan of Gueze bit this one is a disappointment. More sweet than sour, lacks og typical aromas.

slowrunner77 (9651) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Not a fan of this, as I was not a fan of the Fond Tradition Gueuze. Too much olive and dust, and too much carbonation. Not quite terrible, but for the style and the price, a definite let down.

Gurthnar (4787) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle at Goblins. Clear golden colour. Almost no head. Rather user friendly geuze, lots of caramelly sweetness nicely balancing the quite weak sourness. Clean bubblegum and barn flavour. Good one, not the most complex though.

Maakun (3422) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle at home as Premium Gueuze. Hazy grey-golden with small off white head, looks like swamp water. Some hay, apple, whisky on the nose, moldy bread, brown sugar, brown bread, pee, sour vegetables. Light sweet with soft bitter finish. Bit below medium bodied with light champagne-like carbonation. Has some good notes but the pee and vegetables make this more on the nasty side of things. still drinkable though.
