ClarkVV (6962) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 14, 2008
375mL bottle, Feb 23 2006, drunk from a Duvel snifter on Bastille Day 2008.
A surprisingly dark color for a gueuze, with deep orange and tangerine shades playing about a strong copper background. Sparse bubbles appear on the very edges and the clarity is medium-high, leaving the sediment behind, as always.
Heavily lactic in the nose, with light mushroom suggestions and less tartness/sourness than I would expect. I must admit to reading David’s review before trying this and some residual sugars, that he mentions, certainly seem to be prominent in the nose, for a gueuze. They somewhat dull the resulting phenol bouquet, but I’m still hopeful for the flavor....
Hmmmm, very sweet for a real lambic, and without as much of the dry, oily woodiness that is presented in the Grand Bruocsella. Not to say it dosen’t taste mostly proper for a flat lambic, but there is a quick transition from sweet malts to a watery, overly loose finish. No flaws though, I don’t even get any obnoxious rubber or sulfur. Could just be my tolerance to it though. You want to score this one high, but it just dosen’t seem to be nearly as complex as, say, a 2001 oude gueuze or any Cantillon Gueuzes. More sourness please.
Will compare this side-by-side to a Loerik after a few more years. Loerik has the last word on lazy gueuzes, at this point.

Rocznik 2015. Fantastycznie nieskomplikowane, gładkie, skórzaste, cytrynowe, delikatne winogronowe, z ładnie to układającą ziołową goryczką. Tu nie ma co kombinować. Tylko się zachwycać.

Bottle [email protected], Copenhagen - Amber golden pour with small white head. Tart furity with notes of citrus fruit, some dried apricot, notes of grape, slight musky, light to medium body, tart fruity finish.

DruncanVeasey (8428) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2017 Bottle, August 2016, presumably from Gonzo. Slim haloed brass. Moderate condition with a light tingle of fizz. Minty, slightly orange juicy aroma with smears of dankness, Brie, horses and wet hay. Mellow creamy acidity puckering yet moreish in the house style, provided you have a cast iron stomach and a shot of Gaviscon at the ready. Dank and sour like a lime that fell down the back of the fridge shrivelling for a couple of months. Hint of warming down racehorse. Expensive.

Mariox (399) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 25, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 W aromacie lekkie stajenne, słomiane nuty, wydaje się świeższy niż chociażby a&g, lekkie skórzane nuty. W smaku lekko kwaśne, o dziwo spora słodycz została. Na finiszu cierpkie delikatnie. Wysycenie średnie, treściwe, pijalne. Całkiem dobre gueuze.

Fajne piwo, czuc cytrusy w aromacie. Inne owoce zresztą też. Piwo złotawe, przepuszcza światło. W smaku kwaśne, cytrusowe. Alkohol niewyczuwalny. Praktyczny brak goryczki. Jest ok!

Bardzo fajne piwo, dużo owoców, mniej stajni, jest skóra, przede wszystkim w smaku. Nie za mocno kwaśne, dobrze ułożone, naprawdę udane piwo.

Marheb (6334) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2017
(Une bouteille à The Courtyard Decorah): Houblons surrannés dans un liquide entier mais inerte. Très mentholé avec le bouquet bactérien signature et une finale molle de chêne humide qui se colle à longue et complexe acidité.

PlutonowyMan (906) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2017 Kolor żółty, jasno bursztynowy. Piana nieco żółtawa, niezbyt wysoka, ale mocno zbita, drobno ziarnista, w konsystencji kremowa. Aromat owocowy, wiodące są nuty jabłek, agrestu ale i pomarańcza z brzoskwinią sie tam trafią, jest octowo, z akcentami stajennymi. Jest soczyście i kwaśno. Smak: tutaj jak wyżej owocowo, jabłka, agrest, białe winogrona, ocet jabłkowy, trochę cytryn. Jest kwaśno, nieco cierpko. W smaku przebija się pestkowa goryczka. Na finiszu pojawia się kminek jak w świeżym pieczywie, urocze. Wysycenie średnie w kierunku do wysokiego.

Clear golden-amber, very little foam. Nice light acidic nose, fruity and biscuity sourness. Quite low carbo but that is not really a problem. Taste acidic, applepeels and lemon seeds, fragrantly bitter. Nice smooth mouthfeel, juicy but bonedry. Light bitter dry aftertaste, apple peels continue lingering.

Mocno owocowy. Niedojrzałe winogrona, jabłko. Lekko octowy delikatnie cytrusowy.
