UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (375ml corked). I canít say Iíve had a good, *real* Gueuze, so canít speak definitively. Pours a slightly hazy orange, massive foamy rocky head, very lively to start but quickly flattens - very nice lacing. Aroma quite sour (sour wine), with maltiness, oranges, pineapple, fresh-cut wood resin, and a lot of yeast - itís a bit bitter on my nose, so I guess hops too. If mine was skunky, I couldnít pull that odor out above the sourness. Not unpleasant, actually. Flavour is VERY sour, and not in a good way - sour wine, sour milk, sour stale malt, sour mash (grain) - aftertaste of weak expired citrus cocktail. Very flat and acidic mouthfeel, light (thank you!) on palate and not much linger. I was expecting to be challenged based on the taste, but what a let-down. Pass. 10/20 for looks and smell ONLY.

Not a good gueuze, it has an awful smell. An amber coloured beer with a weird combination of a sour and sweet taste. I hope (and think) that the 37.5cl corked bottle is better. (Bottle 25cl)

deep gold, firm white head. mild skunk aroma with stale metallic notes. bready, lemony, yeasty aroma. flavour starts sour like a real gueuze but finishes sickly sweet for the style. didnít do it for me.

Geueze? Well I guess this is like a macro-version of many other types of beer - made for the masses. It has some pleasant refreshing qualitites but it certainly doesnít slap you with the assertive sour notes that I love so much. Malty and bubbly, apple cider aromas and grassiness. Overall it was drinkable but not nearly truly geueze-like for me.

Pours a hazy amber colour with a big white head. Sweet malt and cider aromas. Light body with medium carbonation make this quite refreshing. Taste is a bit too sweet but otherwise a nice mixture of sweet and sour swiriling around the tongue.

Although itís a bit Champale-like in taste, body and appearance, itís still a refreshing change from the usual beer. Itís just not up to snuff: itís too thin, too sweet and too simplistic. Loses points for the metallic notes.

From a 375 ml corked and caged bottle courtesy of pintbypint. The body is a light orange color. The head is white and huge. The aroma is apple cider and some honey sweetness. There are also some herbal notes. The taste is a tame white grape juice. There is also an apple cider character with a hint of cinnamon. A subtle and interesting versoin of the style. However, I would like a little more character of sourness.

Light amber color. Floral and herb aroma. Kind of a sugared sour candy flavor. Lights up the tongue. Interesting change from the usual.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2005
Looks good, smells great, and even has a nice sweet herbal flavour. But Jeez, this beer has no body. It also leaves little lingering impression. Not bad, but if youíre paying premium prices, you want something better than this.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Beautiful amber coloured with a rather fizzy head. Thin body but beautiful sweet and sour flavours. A commercial and sweetened gueuze but very pleasant indeed. And a good way to start if youíre not familiar to the style. 290893
