ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Reviewed 12/31/2012. Thanks to Momar42 for all three gueuzes (and the kriek surprise afterwards!) This was part of the gueuze showdown, pitting Tilquins gueuze against the juggernaut duo known as Cantillon Gueuze and Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze. Part of a 750mL bottle poured into a Cantillon tulip. Notes from last nights Skins/Cowboys game. A: Pours a hazy golden color. The head is a half finger white color with poor retention. S: This one had the most balanced hybrid between winy fruit tartness and earthy funk. A very expressive aroma, and the best one of the three (by a small margin). T: Acetic sourness comes on the palate fast and hard, and then afterwards cheesy, earthy funk...finishes the flavor profile fast and hard. This was the boldest and most complex of the three, yet it wasnt that much harsher than the 3F (certainly it was somehow more subtle than Tilquins offering). Shockingly easy to drink for me. M: The finish is the dirtiest and most tannic of the three, closing the palate with big dryness, yet minimal harshness. This one is actually pretty thick in its texture, accentuating a fuller level of carbonation than the 3F Oude Geuze. O: This was the winner in my book - but I wouldnt dare recommend this one to beginners. There is a sense of subtle delicacy to it; however the bigness of the acetic sourness, wet hay, and cheesy funk WILL scare off the average Fat Tire drinker the way a celery stalk scares off a fat kid. And moreso than the other two gueuzes, in fact. To those acclimated to the styles idiosyncrasies, this ones hard to beat.

Kapsel (158) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 22, 2017
W aromacie stajnia, skra, dzikość, bretty, nuty drewna. W smaku mega orzeźwiające, kwaśne, lekko cierpkie w posmaku. Świetne piwo!

jvhemert (383) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Bottle (750ml) at 6 degrees North Edinburgh AROMA: bread, barnyard, dough, APPEARANCE: pale, hazy, white foam, minimal head, TASTE: light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium sourness, PALATE: medium body, thin feel, lively, astringent, long finish, OVERALL: very nice Geuze; barnyard aroma works with medium sourness. Not to repeat as reeks havoc on the system.

cinek (155) - POLAND - JAN 16, 2017
butelka/strefa piwa. złote z obfitą drobnopęcherzykową, białą pianą, utrzymująca się do końca picia. aromat stajni, obory, mokrego siana, wyczuwalane rwnież nuty ziołowo-cytrusowe, no i jest też funky, wszystko w miarę na podobnym poziomie, bez dominacji żadnej ze składowych. w smaku umiarkowanie kwaśne, przechodzące w wytrawność z ziołowo-łodygowym finiszem. ciekawe, duża przyjemność z picia. jeżeli dobrze pamiętam to w maju 2016 butelkowane

Zeer helder uitziende gueuze. Aroma is citrus en hout. Smaak is in eerste instantie zeer clean en vlak maar barst dan mooi open. Citrus, houterige bitter, hints van citrus. Droge finish. Top.

Bottle. Cloudy golden with tinny white head. Medium and very pleasant aromas of barnyard, wood, bretts and some citrus notes. Light to medium body, right carbonated, very refreshing, little bit salty with good sour finish. Really enjoyed.

mariuspoenari (1941) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2017
75cl bottle, at home. Semi-hazy orange pour with a thin white head with poor retention and visible carbonation rising to the top. Notes of lambic funk, barnyard, hay, apple cider, macerated apples, pears, light vinegar, baking soda, white grapes, some hop-like bitterness. Medium bitter and medium sour. A really refreshing gueuze.

MatiF96 (105) - POLAND - DEC 31, 2016
Złociste, lekko zamglone. Drobna biała piana dość szybko redukuje się do krążka. Bogaty aromat zmieniający się wraz z ogrzaniem. Jest dzikość, czuć bretty, drewno staje się bardzo wyraźne. Do tego lekki słd i kwaśność. W smaku wytrawnie. Jest kwaśność, trochę cytrusowa. Na finiszu lekka pestkowa cierpkość. Bardzo fajne, złożone ale przy tym lekkie piwo.

Enno101 (100) - - DEC 28, 2016
Aroma: Heavy earthy funk, wet oak, damp dusty basement, cardboard & cheese as it warms. Taste: Firm sourness, it has that damp earthy funk again in the the flavour and also has a heavy mineral character to it. Overall: Very complex gueuze, Ive had bottles of this before but cant remember them having such an earthy damp funk forward aroma and flavour to them.

Great wild aroma, a lot of horse and other brett aromas. Moderate sourness. Great taste, citric, brett, less sour than I expected, but a lot of great lambic notes.

Jashiu (637) - Gdask, POLAND - DEC 27, 2016
750ml bottle from sklepzpiwem.pl Gdańsm.
2015 vintage

Aroma of horse sweat and hay. Some white fruit and citrus fruit aromas. Surprisingly practically no vinegar.
Taste is citric and a bit bitter, rather dry and sour.
Very drinkable yet I was expecting more complexity
