Dark golden clear pour. Big white head. Some lacing. Slight aroma of bile. Some malt and barnyard notes. Taste is a slightly watered down malt flavor with hints of pepper. Bland. Finish is sweet. Not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had this in a bar in Aalter Belgium. Poured clear orange with a little head. Slightly sour notes but not what you’d expect from a geueze. A simple beer and a bit disappointing.

Abijen (1401) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2013
Pours a golden reddish beer. Minimal to almost no head. Smells little sour and sweet. Can't tell really what it smells like. The taste is disappointing. I hoped for more sourness. It have little tones of sweetness and a little bit sourness. Really boring. The taste disappeared really faste. It has a watery and thin texture. Carbo is average.

Clear orange brown, white head. Very easy gueuze. Sourness is hard to find, medium sweet. More soda like.

This is one of the worst gueuze’s you can buy. Sadly it was also one of the first I ever tried and nearly ruined the style for me. Has the sourness you’d expect, but its almost overwhelmed by the sweetness and stale cardboard aroma.

bottle from the shity bottleshop behind the corner... pours unlike a geuze! how do i mean? carbonation already gives sugar away ( or is that just some weird idea in my had? ) soapy foam, very light orange colour, and the carbonation rising up? thats just like a lager or something... so yeah.. usualy i see only colours and wether the foam is big or not. this is the first time i actualy SEE - this is NOT gonna be a good geuze :p ( or its imaginary , perhaps ) foam is already gone by typing till here.. leaving a thin layer of white at the top smells like a faro . a faro is one of my favourite beer styles, but this is a geuze? WTF ? tastes sugary, again, i would believe this is a faro, by the taste, but the label clearly states st louis premium geuze lambic ( i did not do this as a new entry, since the word premium above it could as well be a diffrent labeling , i figured ) so yeah, a bad faro, ( but not the badest one ) to me. do i enjoy it? for this price -> yeah. but why call this geuze? thats like calling budweiser an imperial stout.. WHY ????

Lowenbrau (1883) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 2, 2013
25cl bottle. Sweet and subtle tart aromas. Pours bright gold, almost clear, with vanishing white head, poor lacing. Light body and hig carbonation, crispy. Taste is sweet, subtle sourness, herbal, hay. Much more on the sweet side, which is something i´m not expecting from a gueuze.

thanatosti (881) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2012
25 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Bert’s Bierhuis. Golden yellow with a white head. Sweet lambic aroma. Lambic taste although the sweet sugars tend to dominate. Decent beer but too sweet.

Theydon_Bois (7938) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle at home (Noel Cuvelier) 24/12/12. Lightly hazed golden amber with a medium ’un geuze like’ sized white head that retains well. Nose is sour light, sugars, lemon curd, touch of wood, farmy musty. Taste is sweet and sugary, nowhere near enough tarte and sour, light honey, citrus tones. Medium bodied, light carbonation, dry finish. Too sweet, not enough sour, below par geuze.

Bottle. Caramel with a large solid frothy head, excellent lacing. Aroma is sweet grain and grapefruit. Flavour is bittersweet, a little sekt on a sour finish
