ComradeK (1028) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours a clear light gold (the E150 colouring apparently hasn’t done a whole lot), with a tiny and rapidly vanishing white head, which leaves no lace. There are some pleasant sour, musty and woody notes in the aroma, but the added apple juice gives an artificial feeling to it. A fairly pleasant sour flavour up front is again spoilt by an artificial apple taste. Some sourdough flavours come through in the middle, with a crisper sour finish. This is not a terrible beer by any means, but I get the sense that it could have been a whole lot better without the apple juice, which is very intrusive, and the unnecessary E150 and E300 additives.

Nice drinkable gueuze. Good flavours and balance. Lacks complexity; good starter gueuze.

So i decided to try this one although I really do NOT like the E150 and the E300 in a geuze! But after some research E150 is caramel and E300 is actually vitamine C....ascorbine acid. Always liked acid in geuze :p So they added caramel, sugar and apple juice...kinda expected that from Timmermans. So what are we drinking here, a faro? I think its a geuze for kids! Smell is sweet apple, taste is sugar sweet apple juice...Is this a geuze? No its apple juice with lambic and added sugar to get the foam and a bit of carbonation. So where does this belong boys and girls? Right...down the drain. Stop sweetening Timmermans! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle. Pours golden with slight bubbles and a very small amount of bubbles. The nose has apples and a touch of apple vinegar and some citrus pith thing. There seems to be a dense texture (on the nose if that makes sense). The taste has serious cider notes - dry apples, apple compote in the middle and even cider vinegar. The palate has a medium body which is surprising for this style. The texture continues with the richness.and there is a dry refreshing finish. Overall, I really enjoyed this.

Smells quite enticing with banana notes blending with the citrus. Taste is all about sour fruit though. Tart enough to be refreshing but not sure about completely enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ThirstyBird (1564) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2012
Pours a light golden yellow with a light tan head that dissipates quickly. Smell is apple juice, mild tartness. Taste is apple juice, some must, lemon bitterness, malt sweetness with a little dry wood on the finish. Body is light and the carbonation is active and slightly coarse. Too sweet for my liking...there are some nice flavors hiding is there but the sweetness with a saccharin feel to it heavily masks it.

Gedronken in Buitenlust, weinig tot geen geur, smaakt zoet, zuur, beetje fruitig.

Palme (3365) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2012
0.375l corked bottle @ Braai Tapperij de Mug, Middelsburg. This is a clear champagne soda-colored beer with a small quickly islandy and sidesticking off-white head. I was expecting (and hoping for) a tart acidic and sour aroma, but that’s not what I get at all. It’s almost a bit sweet with sugar syrup, fruits and some sulfur-thingy going on as well. Not horrible, but definitely not what I was expecting. The flavors: oh yeah, that’s more like it! Not to sour in any way(I was also here hoping for more), it’s more subtle with good sour tones. Lots of acidic lemons, zest, hay, sour yogurt and malts. It’s average to soft carbonated and it has a really mild and kind oily texture in the mouth. Long mild dry lemony aftertaste. This was actually really tasty and almost just what I wanted right about now. 30.05.2012

On draught at De Cam Volkscafe. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma is very sweet with candy sugar, musty yeast, caramel, alcohol and Weetabix malt. Similar flavours, quite sweet and musty again, with pickled onions to finish. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. A little dry with a foamy mouth-feel. Not my favourite.
