2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - 250ml. Hazy gold body topped with a thin white creamy head. Good hoppy aroma with herbal, flowery, and apple notes. Its malty taste is rather thin and ends with a short sour finish. Not impressed...

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light amber and hazy in colour. Moderate prickly carbonation. Aromas of lemons, wet leather, and wet cedar wood. Very different in the mouth with notes of sticky sweet pale malts, stale hops, plastic, and apple skins. Too sweet and not funky or complex enough. At least it smelled not too bad. Thanks to lubiere for the extra!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle picked up from Beers of Europe late April. Poured light amber in colour with a small white head, slightly acidic aroma but tempered somewhat, almost like when you are sweating off some cooking apples in a pan with a bit of dark sugar. Taste is a bit sweet for a gueuze, but pleasant enough some tangy appleness comes through again with an oakiness, enjoyable but nowhere near the best of this style.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Almost clear dark blonde body topped by a white ring of foam. Initial flavour of rotten apple and corn syrup paves the way to an unpleasant dry and sandy finish. What the hell is that sugary sweetness doing in a gueuze. Mouth drying tartness that is so pleasant in real gueuzes is replaced here by a plastic flavour. I did a quick “advanced search” in ratebeer to see where the St-Louis Gueuze ranks in the Lambic-Gueuze category. Seeing it pretty much at the bottom was about as surprising as learning that the dude with the red uniform on a Star Trek away mission is gonna get killed.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
250ml bottle, honey gold color, with a frothy white head, leaving laces, sweet soft wild yeasty nose, with a wet oakiness note, faint fruity mustiness, subtle leafiness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a mild sweet sharpness character, with gentle acidity, citrus wineyness, hint of greens apples tartness, leading towards a fruity tart and sweet dryness finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
a little sweet to be an original gueze but not too bad, herbal flavour, slightly fizzy, good one to start people on the geuze train

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. This is not a real gueuze thats my opiniun. Light yellow color. Light body. Start sweet at the finish is winey with a small amount of fruit flavours. The palate is more like regular ale.
