begbie100 (181) - Oulu, - MAR 13, 2010
330ml bottle. Small white head. Hazy mead colour. Stingy spicy aroma with ginger, vinegar, redcurrant, rhubarb some metal tones at the end. Flavour is close to aroma: redcurrant is strong with rhubarb and citrus. End comes pretty quick and is bland, so not much deepness in this. Refreshing.

Erzengel (1907) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Im Geruch säuerlich-süßlich, die Farbe ist tiefgolden. Der weiße, feinporige Schaum ist relativ stabil. Der Antrunk ist säuerlich, schlagt aber sofort nach den ersten paar Sekunden ins komisch-süßliche um – merkwürdig. Ich schaue auf die Flasche und kann es kaum glauben – da ist neben Zucker auch noch 5,3% Apfelsaft drin! Ach Du Schreck! Und die schöne Farbe kommt Durch das tolle chemische E150… Ohne die Zutatenliste gesehen zu haben dachte ich schon, dass das ein komisches Bier ist – aber jetzt weiß ich, wieso es so eigenartig schmeckt!
--> Wer Gueuze mit leicht süßlichem Apfelgeschmack und sehr moderater Säure mag, dem sei dieses Bier empfohlen! Wer eine vernünftige, „reine“ Gueuze sucht --> Finger weg. Mein Fall ists jedenfalls nicht!

MaartenRF10 (1460) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2013
Somewhat unclear orange amber appearance, with a bubbly white head. Gueuze with a lot of apple which is a lot sweeter than it is sour. It’s more like an apple cider. Thirsty quenching enough, but poor as a gueuze. Carbo is too low.

Ynotnitram (6) - - OCT 8, 2013 does not count
An impressive traditionally brewed Gueuze Lambic by, they say, the world’s oldest lambic brewery. Right balance of sourness, authentic taste - a very surprising product indeed; what a surprise!. spontaneous fermentation all right, the authentic way.

BOLTZ7555 (2701) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2013
24 karat pour with deeper hues of copper at its core and a small ivory cap. Sweeter than expected but still showed some traditional funk, mustiness, barnyard, hay, acidity, and sourness. Drinkable but not overly complex.

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 25, 2013
37.5 cl bottle from ABC Leuven. Rather decent gueuze-like nose, horse blanket, lemon rest, leather, dust. Not big time, but definitely it’s the main element. A touch of caramel malt beneath. Orange-gold, clear, with a high, fine head. Quite sweet, but with a nice sour tang as well, candi / brown sugar, some leather. Lambic character still there but a bit muted by the sweetness. Lemon, green apple, caramel. Not great, but possibly the best sweetened gueuze I can remember drinking. Soft but persistent carbonation. Decent. Refreshing.

Douberd (1697) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle, corked and caged, 375 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 5% Golden orange colour on the body, one finger og white, froathy head on top. Low retention for the most part, leaves foam islands on the beer’s surface. Tiny bubbles are making their way upwards. Fruity aroma, white grapes, a bit of sweet caramel, lots of sugar. Good taste, biting sourness at first, finishes with a nicely balanced taste between sour and sweet. Wine-y, white sour grapes., not so much sugar as I expected form the aroma. Medium thin body, fizzy carbonation. Very dry palate. Pretty okay gueuze.

PapaVillum (295) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2013
37,5 cl flaske, 5 %, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik, 23. august 2013. Gylden gueuze med flot minimalt hvidt skum. Aroma af citrus. Næsten voldsom surhed i den indledende smag, men også "minder" om øl. Surheden er næsten ovre i grapefrugt, og øllet giver en læskende tørhed i eftersmagen. En meget anderledes oplevelse for traditionelle øldrikkere. Denne gueuze er dog klart mindre "drikkelig" end den Mort Subite, jeg smagte for et par måneder siden. Blødt kulsyreindhold. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Bottle split at JF’s, cheers James, 17/08/13. Lightly hazed golden with a thin off white swirl and edgeing. Nose is lemon rind, damp wood, touch musty, sugars, light oxidised notes. Taste is soured citric fruits, lemon rind, wood, earthy, light funk. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish. Adequate gueze, light sour notes, could do with a bit more oomph on the tarteometer!

ruigo (856) - PORTUGAL - AUG 5, 2013
37,5cl bottle in good company. Pours a copper colour with a thin white head. Fruity and sour aroma. Medium Carbonation. The flavour starts light bitter, turning to a sweet and sour combination that is quite good. Dry and acid aftertaste.
