375 mL bottle, as Cantillon Classic Gueuze. Pours hazy golden orange with a small and quickly diminishing off-white head. Sour and tangy aromas with some tart fruitiness and a bit of funkiness that I suppose is probably the barnyard aromas that are often spoken of. Flavor is mostly a simple sourness that isn’t too strong. Lemon and apple flavors associated with the sourness come across to some extent. Pretty much a simple but tasty beer for my first gueuze.

Bottle, 75cl - Hazy golden amber colored beer with a frothy head. Aroma is vinous and acidic, with notes of sour apples. Flavor is sourish with hints of apples. Pretty nice gueuze!

Beautiful color, golden reminiscent of apple juice. Wonderful blend of sour and tart flavors, with an underlying spiciness that cuts into the sour. Does a good job of hiding the alcohol present. Deliciously different, and very drinkable once you get a taste for the flavor.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Very smooth gueuze. Aroma and nose are all funky horseblanket with a copperish smell in the background. Pours golden with white head. Very dry and sour. I could drink a lot of this if it weren’t $14 a pop.

Thanks to Sprinkle for this gem. Nice orange color with nice white head. Taste was of course very tart with some dried fruits. This beer was very easy to drink

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Pours foggy bright orange with a thin off white head. The nose is horse blanket and other funk, along with tart citrus, as is the flavor. Subtle oak finish.

Parasympatikus (25) - , FINLAND - OCT 10, 2008
Hazy orange color and white head. Citric aroma is bitter and fruity. Sour, fruity, wild, earthy taste. Refreshing. Softly carbonated medium mouthfeel.

Drake (13741) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2008
12.7 oz. bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Headless yellow-amber pour with lots of carbonation. Fruity aroma with notes of strong funk, cherry, berry and grape. Taste is very smooth and tart with notes of grapes, wood, berry, lemon. Actually a bit on the thin bodied side. Very nice.

mar (5417) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2008
bottle courtesy of Bhops. golden pour with no head just a ring of white froth. sour funkness with cherries and an all around tartness that lingers. quite smooth on the palate with a great sour flavor and an awesome oaky finish.

3.7
Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Pours a cloudy gold with minimal white head. Nose is crabapple, sour citrus and funk. Taste is very tart and full of lemon, grapefruit, oak, and hints of barnyard and vinegar. Light and lively mouth feel. Pretty mellow on the funk. Decent.
