JoeMcPhee (8819) - 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 it’s 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.

beanmedic (347) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2005
sour fruity tart apple lambicy taste. decent but relatively unremarkable.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2005
Clear, bright orange-amber w/ pale tan foam. Aroma is sweet & malty w/ some light tart apple notes. Light, highly carbonated feel. Odd flavour for a gueuze--sweet & malty w/ some earthy bitterness & almost not tartness. Overall quite bland w/ a cardboard-ish quality.

Boutip (5025) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2005
Bottle: Poured a medium clear amber color ale with a huge white foamy head with good retention. Faint barnyard aroma can be detected as well as subtle sourness. Taste is sweeter then regular gueuze with some sweetness but no acidity. Complexity is quite low and I guess this would be more of a beginner gueuze then anything else.

iambeer (255) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
The sour fruitinees of this type of gueuze just isn’t for me. A sweet aroma, poured a almost bubbly, Maybe one but definitly not two; ok if I was stranded on a desrted island.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2005
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO. Tasted in Corsendonk flute. Appearance is amber/yellow, clear with a sustained head. Aroma is on the sweeter side, not cidery or acidic as I would expect with a Gueuze. Flavour is a bit off balance with fairly intense sweetness considering the style.

Radek Kliber (6587) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 25, 2005
Fairly light sweet and sour aroma. Light bodied with strong sugary front. For lambic very shy in sour notes. Reminds me of very sweet sparkling wine. It seems that maker tried to make introductory, light gentle lambic but in the final result no one will be happy.

2.6
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
CoolerKing (14) - Burlington, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2005
Amber in colour, subtle fruity aroma with a hint of skunkiness. Mild fruity taste, sweet finish. Not as good as Mort Subite gueuze which I also tried.
