This beer has a very special taste. It has a touch of banger, cabbage and prune!

Eirikur (370) - 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.

Randomly picked this one in a bar. Was very pleased. Poured Amber, moderate head. My first sip noted that it was sour, but it sweetned by mid-bottle and stayed that way to the end.

A gigantic lambic, you would feel the hops jumping to your nose, good flavour too.

SanfordBrewer (1391) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Typical lambic sourness with hay and a bit of fruitiness. Not amazingly complex, but decent.

Damico (2612) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2010
The funky, sour aroma is smooth through the nose. The deep golden color pours with a small head. It is a clear sour flavor which stays smooth throughout the palate.

TomDecapolis (4500) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Tap at Memphis Taproom for a dolla! Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of sweet sour and funky notes, tart cherry and some light barnyard. Flavor of tart funkiness, cherries and light sweetness. Well done. Aroma coming across a bit sweet.

KornDogg (532) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Draft at Capone’s. Similar to Cantillon but not as good. Hazy yellow, with thin head. Flavor is sour but overall very tart, hints of citrus. Dry finish

Bottle @ barely Legal Tasting Room Pours amber-ish, with a small white head . Smel is sweet - More Faro than geuze Taste is sweet, sugary , with a hint of lambic . i’d call this a Faro any day, upon tasting blindly . And I like Faro’s . of course, as a Geuze/sour fan this sucks ass , but tastewise ? I’ll never say no to drinking something like this . I just do not understand why they call it a geuze ...
Earlier Rating: 3/19/2013 Total Score: 3.6
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 ????
