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 (25074) - 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

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2005
Not really my style, but a decent gueuze for people trying to get into the style. Body is a dark gold colour, with very noticable white head. Aromas are herbal, hops, with some malts. Taste is bitter hops, malts, and grassy. Sort of a mild burn on the finish??? Strange.

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2005
First gueze for me. Very beautiful pour. tight stark white head with a deep gold colour. For me that was the best part though. Aroma and flavour is made up of wheat, coriander, cloves, a little ginger, with a mild sweetness. Cheers!

Rastacouere (6153) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2005
Amber bodied topped by a royal white head, leaving some great lacing around the glass edges thanks to a powerful carbonation. Honest aroma plays between the sweet cookieish malt hinting at honey, peaches and pumpkin and lightly moldy, moreso hay-like yeast. Itís definitely no disaster up to now and the palate is actually quite soft with the carbonation being just enough, smooth and medium bodied if finishing watery. It is too sweet though, thatís its only weakness, but it transcends everything else and kills any interest. A fair number of IPAs and even stouts show more acidity (though mostly citric) than St Louis Gueuze. Needless to say that the complexity is fairly limited as well, itís just basically not very tasty at all, the malt is faint and the fermentation elements are not assertive at all, a mere shadow of the aroma.

JoeMcPhee (8837) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
375 ml bottle, 11/2003. Deep-orange tan colour, persistent tan head. Nice leathery, horseblankety aroma, sweet faint lactic aroma. Flavour is quite thin and dusty, faint leather. Needs a lot more flavour though to match the aroma. Thin, light sugary finish. Aroma also has a bit of cherry and some cedar in the finish as well.

Cartoonkhaki (1221) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2005
Light amber golden colour white puffy head. Slight sour flavour of apples.. Slight acidicy in flavour and aroma with a mustiness... sweet nothing horrible but nothing note worthy either...

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2005
Light amber colour with a light foamy white head and lace that hugs the glass. The nose is slightly skunked, yet there are still barnyard hints and itís a bit tart and dusty. The body is quite sweet and sugary for a gueuze. Lightly tart and spritzy finishes short and sweet. Not a great gueuze.
