chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2004
I guess Ive been a bit spoiled for lambics up to now as a I have stuck to "the real thing". This manifestly is not the real thing. Hazy bronze pond water appearance. Very slight woody vinegar edge on the nose, but thats about as close to a proper gueuze as it gets. The aroma is dominated by caramel and candy sugar. No barnyard here. Although there is some tartness on the palate, it could hardly be called sour. Whatever flavours there are battered into submission by a sticky, cloying sweetness. There is a synthetic tasting pear drop and cough medicine undertone. This tastes more like a sweetened farmyard cider, or even apple juice, than a gueuze to me and theres simply not enough acidity to cut through the sweetness. Nor good. This should bump my gueuze average rating down a bit. 250ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. BBE date illegible.

fiulijn (19644) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2004
Amber color. Aroma of malt, Porto wine, sweet. Very sweet taste, with peculiar wine notes (common Porto wine). Its not a Gueuze, I should not like it, but I do!

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 15, 2003
No head what so ever (I poured it 20cm from the glass!!). Mud coloured body. The nose is yeast and fruit (reminds me of Champagne...!!). The taste is awful!! Sour, acid and vinegar....

AndersR (196) - rhus, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2003
Non existing head. Yeasty fruity flavour (hints of vinegar?). Medium sour taste with fruity finish (apple) going over in sweeter aftertaste.

Dalle (1145) - Skrping, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2003
Small head, brownish colour. Aroma; vinous, oak, sweet. Flavor is not very sour but mostly sweet with a sirupy sensation on the lips. Drinkable but not very exciting.

Nuffield (4092) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Odd brown-amber color, little head. Musty, sweet, cellar aroma, like a vintage English strong ale. Not effevescent. Too sweet! Sour attack on the palate with the first taste, then cloyingly sweet. Big-time woody flavor, lots of cork, lacking complexity in my opinion, very much a cellar cask. Finishes with the same flavors.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2003
Gold-amber gold with a white head. Big bubbles. Some acidity in the nose and a strange process cheese flavour come through. Very sweet little commercial gueuze that is not very good.

Frank (4047) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Lambic aroma hits as soon as the seal on the cap is broken. Pours a nice ever-so-slightly hazy golden orange. Head is huge initially but fades fast to a quarter inch. Nose is sour but it's sharpness is cut by a sweet apple note and a hint of mustiness. The carbonation looks intense when this is poured but it feels a bit dead on the palate in addition to being slightly syrupy. Flavor is dominated by a vague sort of sourness with some apple and caramel notes far off in the background. Not terribly complex and as such not a gueuze much worth drinking.

Christian (12998) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2003
A cloudy dark yellow with a quickly gone white head. A fruity head with some champagne. The aroma is so much apple it's almost cider and has some vinegar-ish acid.
