4.1
scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Draft - Brasserie Beck (DC). Hazed orange, fizzy white head. Sour funked cheese and grape aromas roll over hints of citrus and oaken must. Acidic lemony sour wood flavors gain notes of soft funky earth. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, sour finish. A rockin gueuze.....

3.5
buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - MAY 8, 2008
Rosy peachy creamy golden colour...quite a nice mellow shade. Smell is of slight apricot and grass. Taste is clover, smashed apples, cider, slight tinge of oak and earth. Smooth, bitter, fizzy sourness at the tail end. A comforting beer on a spring night.

mjs (7413) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2008
(Bottle at Hilpeä Hauki on 2008-02-15) Golden colour. Very tiny head. Very sour nose with some acidity. Sour and at the same time fruity taste. Sourness is like stomach acids. Some even vomit-like flavours.

RomanW70 (296) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Pours cloudy orange yellow. Sour, fruity, funky aroma. Taste is very tart and sweet, with a lot of noticeable funk and earthy flavores. Has almost no carbonation. Finish is extremely tart and sour. Tastes like Spring.

BeerEssential (96) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 26, 2008
Cantillon Classic Gueuze, the one with the black silhouette on the yellow label. Slightly cloudy yellow, started off very carbonated but head settled down to almost zero. Scent is sour and woody. I’ve never had this style of beer, so I find it very sour...but that’s how it’s meant to be. Almost not beer-like at all, but like sour wine. Interesting, but difficult to rate without gaining more experience of the style.

travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2008
Golden in color and hazy with a thin lacy head. Smell is sweet, sour, acidic, and funky. Taste is sweet, sour, and has a great bite to it. Thin and dry with low carbonation.

3.7
DietPepsican (1591) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 21, 2008
Pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma was apple, funk, and sour fruits. Flavor has a good shot of lambics funk, some leather and tobacco, a bit of woody earth. Finished pretty sour, refreshing.

3.6
blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - APR 20, 2008
750 bottle labeled classic gueuze capped and corked poured into a flute. color is a cider like amber with minimal carbonation and virtually nothing as far as head on the surface. aroma has sour fruit, spiced yeast, and fermented apples. flavor is definitely tart and dries out your whole tongue. nice wood flavors from the aging up against the tartness and bitters. finishes with a totally dry tongue that just makes you salivate and bitterness.

3.9
bhops (433) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2008
bottle at the brewery. A very nice gueze, but I prefer 3 font or de cam. Nice sour tart flavor.
