(Draught at 17th IBBF, sample) Golden clear, color. Small, white, fast falling head. Soft body, medium carbonation, watery texture. Aroma: Sweetish, minimal sour. Crisp, dominated by aromas of brettanomyces, barnyard, yeasty, a bit woody. Taste: Crisp, a bit sour, a bit like champagne, Dominant by brett aromas of barnyard. Short, little sweet finish. Not bad but could be more sour.

Hansen (6569) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2013
St. Louis Premium Gueuze. Dark golden coloured and clear. Has a white head, lasting. Acidic, yeasty aroma, faint berries too. Flavor starts moderate sweet and moderate acidic. Faint bitterness. Creamy, dry texture.

The_Bish (1125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Gurd had this one down - sherbert and pear drops. Not the best gueueueuueueueeze I’ve had, too sweet for me, but agree with Dom that 27/11 is just weird.

Keg at BBB. 27/11? Really? Ok, it didn’t compare with others of the same style but come on. Pleasantly suppable.

Sub par beer. Falls flat on aroma taste is tart and good on front half but finish and after taste off.

mcberko (6270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
375mL bottle, pours a hazy murky orange with a small white head. Nose is quite repulsive, with plastic, cardboard, apple juice and artificial sugars. Flavour is quite bad too, with lots of sweetness -- what the fuck is this doing in a supposed gueuze? -- along with notes of plastic, moderate funk, and apple juice. Very low complexity and way too sweet for the style. What a shame that these pseudo-lambics are out polluting the market, and potentially misleading dumbass consumers about what this is. Yeah, I know I bought it -- I was curious. Very bad. Don’t bother unless you’re curious or offered a free bottle.

Borresteijn (4620) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle at Bazar, Amsterdam. Clear golden amber colour, white head. Aroma is tart, Brett, light funk, green apple skin, caramel. Flavour is medium-sweet, sugary, caramel, light tart, apples, hint of funk, light tart finish with a little metallic sugar note. Light-bodied. OK for what it is.

dnicolaescu (736) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 17, 2013
Head: off-white, medium, frothy, avg, retention. Colour: dark amber, hazy. Aroma: quite faint, some grain, sourness, some yeast (sweat). Taste: balanced sour and sweet, some wild yeast spiciness. Finishes light and delicate bitter.
