Pater Marcus, Budapest. Ködös, kissé narancsosan sárga szín, tetején pezsgős fehér hab. Illata citrusosan savanykás, kissé fűszeres és gyümölcsösen komlós. Íze is csak halványan malátás, a fűszeres, narancsos-citromos erős savanyúság szinte teljesen egyeduralkodó benne, de mégis ez egyáltalán nem bántó, és egy fehérboros-pezsgős jelleggel is bír. Testes, pezsgősen szénsavas, száraz és ajakeltüntetően savanyúúú. Ízlett, jó dolog ez a lambic. JulienHuxley (5980) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2012 At gueuze tasting. Very good appearance, gold with frothy sticky white head. Aroma is funky, relatively mild, some green pepper, subtle. Taste is funky, good sour finish but not too intense, pretty tame gueuze overall. Palate is bone dry and as classic as it gets. Barrelbelly (751) - BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2011
Golden with medium head. Taste and aroma mostly sour but stil some roundness and balance to the taste. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Poured into a tulip. 16-09-2030 stamped on back.
3.5 A: Hazed golden wheat color. Three fingers of frothy white head. Retention is just north of average and only small isolated clumps of lacing are left.
4.0 S: Superbly musty. Smells of dryrot, driftwood, and basement. Rather dry with wild apple and peach frutiness. Surprisingly not very acidic. Minor touches of lactic acid with nearly no vinegary acetic acid.
4.0 T: Again, plenty more in terms of funk than acid. This is one of my least puckering true wilds that I’ve had. Musty basement, old socks, pithy woodiness. Wild earthy apple and underripe peach fruitiness. Lemongrass. No acetic and very mild lactic acid.
4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good spirtzy carbonation. Reasonably smooth with a dry finish.
4.0 D: This is a brett-lover’s gueze. Very earthy and funky without much acidity. Good throughout.

Orange, lätt grumlig öl med flyktigt vitt skum. Doften har en lätt balsamvinägerdragning. Sötare och mindre komplex än Marriage Parfait som också dracks under kvällen.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow golden color. White type head. Aroma is orange peel with super citrus. Funky and citrus in nature. This is farmhouse for sure. markas101 (2530) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 19, 2011
37.5 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via Beer Ritz at the bequest of Peet.
Slightly hazy very pale yellow colour. Yeasty aroma with a strong white wine vinegar aspect. Good level of carbonation, although not too sharp. Some spice comes through with a citrus and pepper finish, with some sweetness emerging. Strykzone (7799) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2011

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 2009-10 bottle from Beers of Europe. This was the first geuze I tried and I remember hating it. Then next time we were in Belgium I went looking more more and haven’t looked back. This is quite a tart geuze with a golden pour and a thin white head. Aroma is classic horse-blanket, lemon, hay and straw. Big tart lemon flavour upfront with barley, oats and a dry finish. A lovely beer. Quite heavy carbonation and CO2 prickle also. 8,3,8,4,17 (4). 2003-004 Bottle at home. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of lemon, horse-blanket and biscuity malt. Tart lemon flavour upfront with barley, a little balsamic vinegar and hay notes. Heavily carbonated and lovely. milewide (2332) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Usual Gueuze aroma and taste, with a touch of bitterness in finish. Cloudy blond color. Medium body.
