2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Pours a slightly cloudy caramel color with a thin white head. The aroma is slightly sour and fruity. The flavor has the same mild sourness and fruits, nothing too wild or authentic in there. The body is light with a dusty texture and soft carbonation.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Fine head on an unclear amber orange body. Sweet and sour grapefruity and woody aroma. Way too sweet in the flavor, it actually reminds me of a faro. Sugary, fruity and slightly woody. Rather cloying and not very good!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
375 ml bottle, corked/caged, 1995...cork dark and brittle. Color odd for style: dark bronze, very clear, no head to speak of. Nose vinous and caramel-laden, bit of vinegar...again, nothing like what I expect in a gueuze, though it’s interesting and powerful. On the tongue, grapy and sweet to begin with, some slight sourness and currant notes towards the end, virtually no carbonation, soft and a bit syrupy. A bit leathery and woody also...not really gueuze, closer I’d say to a well-aged Old Ale, but lacking the complexity of the better examples of that style. Interesting for sure, but not really good.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled @ DBF2004: Light golden. No head. Vineagre and tart aroma. Way too sour for me in the flavour. It gets too dominant, when its not properly balanced by some sweetness. Not my kind of gueuze.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of vinegar, citrus and yeast. Hazy, amber-yellow xoloured with a lasting white head. Taste is tart, a litlle yeasty, some citrus and a little hopbitterness. Decent brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clear Amber/Orange in color with a small white fizzy head. Scent is a combination of rolling over a decayed cedar log in the forest with wood/earth/yeasty tones and cotton candy. Sweet with cedar and some metalic taste. Enough tartness to keep it from being cloying. Perhaps a good intro Gueuze for other novice Gueuze drinkers, as I am.

i havnt had alot of beers in this style, but if this is towards the bad end of the scale as the ratings indicate, I want to try alot more. vinegary, sweet and sour. very enjoyable.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale amber in colour. Aroma was filled with sugar, some oranges and honey. Flavour was rather sweet for a gueuze and very straight forward. Finish is sweet, quick with only a small tart bitterness. This does not satisfy my need for a good gueuze but I'll take anything from this style because they are so hard to find here.
