dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2003
Slightly more lamic character than the most timid lambics. Some light horse blanket flavours. A quafable gueuze none the less.

Eirikur (369) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - MAY 18, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2003 This gueuze is my first gueuze. I love this stuff. Sour and a bit vinegary nose. Very nice, fruity and refreshing taste and aroma, yet filling. Great brew, I will buy this beer again.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2003
Dark blond or light amber coloured beer with a medium off-white head. The aroma is slightly fruity with a relatively mild bitterness. The taste is strikingly sweet for a geuze. I do not like this. I prefer more sourness in a geuze. The sweetness makes it bland, not really my cup of tea.

diabel (1603) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2002
Not a very bright colour. Fruity aroma and dito flavour.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2002
Sharp aromna of oak lemon and cherry. Sweet and a bit sour flavor. Not too bad, but a bit artificial.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2002
Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, moderate density of small and medium sized particles. Aroma is moderately yeasty (cobwebs), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly malty (toasted light bread), with notes of straw and honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. A little too sweet, and the aroma isn’t especially gueuze-like. The assertive bitterness in the flavor profile is a bit odd for the style but it’s not something I dislike.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2002
Sour, tart, light oak aroma. Orange/amber colour, off-white frothy head, good lace. Starts sweet and sour, light oak, sourness disappear quickly. Little bitterness in the finish.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2002
Orange colour with thin white head. Sourish aroma, with hints of wet cardboard and malt. Spicy and fruity. Quite small didn´t open up after 15 minutes in the glass. Spicy and fruity flavor with little acidity. Hay and a little tartness. It opens up after 15 minutes in the glass and gets smoother and a bit bitter. Almost as Campari. A hint of grapefruit rind gets trough. Cantillon is to sour and this is to sweet. Lambics are a hard bargain.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2002
Clear orange color. I prefer a bit cloudy beers. Crispy, sour. Weak gueuze i guess.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2002
Not particularly ’gueze-ish’, but very refreshing. Sharp and crisp, plenty of candy. Quite sugary, which cuts the sourness. Still remains quite sour, a pleasant little tartness. Has a bit of earthiness to it, kind of like drinking from a natural spring. Palate is light, not a lot to it. Not an archetypical gueuze at all, but still like this one.
