brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Clear golden orange with a white head. Vinegar and butter on the nose. Very unpleasant. Minimal fruit or funk, a bit of lemon zest, and perhaps some malt sweetness. Tastes of straw, butter, and vinegar. A mild bread sweetness, some straw, grass, and a bit of harsh oak.

375ml bottle from beergium.com

Very nice tart aroma, funky lambic scents, some white fruit, sweet floral scents. There is a bit of sweetness there, though the beer is tart. With pits of white fruit in the finish. Overall pretty good one but lacks balance and harmony for my taste. Time should help.

Werckmeister (2469) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - SEP 27, 2016
0,375l bottle at home. orange clear color, small white head. smells funky, citric, light green appkes, light sweetness, marzipan, nutty, lightly sour, hints of wood. lovely smell. medium body, medium carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes citric, funky, nutty, some marzipan, bit tobaccoish, some vinegar, also some sweetness, wood, gets a bit sweet but also rather dry and vinegarish towards the finish. finishes dry and sour with funky, green apple and vinegar notes. overall good one, but finish is not very convincing. bit weird overall.

Garrold (4504) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2016
750ml bottle. Etre Gourmet. Dark gold, with a soft haze. Film and ring of lasting, white head. Nose has sweet, toasty, lightly nutty malts. Soft, fruity funk. Some damp, old wood. Bit of a soft fruit stone thing. Bit of citric pith. Taste is sweet, and tart, at the same time. Gets tangy, tart and dries out nicely. Light to medium body. A fair spritz to it. Fruity, dry and tart finish.

shoulderbroken (3892) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle at the Poechenellekelder. Quite a surprise. Has a faro feel to it somehow. Nice funkiness in the nose, musty, bit of coconut, almond. Taste has a touch of sweetness, hint of coconut again, not aggressive at all. Apples. Cider like elements even. Quite soft carbonation. Marzipan, very light citrus. Interesting. Further down it becomes a bit sourer, but still very interesting.

pivnizub (10249) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2016
Bouteille: Golden to deep golden, almost clear, visible carbonation, big - almost creamy - white head; mildly sourish nose of lemons, malt and traces of horseblanket; moderate sourish-bitter flavour, medium bodied; lingering dryish sour and also bitter finish. Good and easy-drinking Gueuze...

tak porownawczo - dwie butelki, Girardin White i Black Label. Bez widocznych dat rozlewu, na korkach obu rok, przy czym na white label 2016 a na black label 2017 (sic! - o co biega? prosba o podpowiedz )

Na obu piwach podobna, kiepskawa piana, nieco syczaca, na Black Label dluzej sie nieco utrzymujaca. Kolor samych lambikow rowniez wyraznie inny - White Label jest nieco ciemniejszy i bardziej przejrzysty

Aromaty - ku mojemu zaskoczeniu - to juz ZUPELNIE inna bajka... o ile Black Label pachnie jak lambik, o tyle biala wersja... jak blend lambika z czyms innym ;) W bialym sa bardzo ewidentne nuty miodowe i kwiatowe, dajace wrecz slodkie wrazenie. Jest tez oczywiscie nieco dzikosci, nieco stajni, nieco skory... ale stonowane to takie wszystko. juz zupelnie w tle owocowosc (cytrusowo winogronowa). Za to w wersji czarnej stajnia, skora sa ewidentna dominanta. na to nakladaja sie cytrusy (zest cytrynowy?) i jakies ziemiste nuty... w tle nawet jakies przyprawy. Duzo bardziej zlozony jest czarny i tyle.

W ustach tez kolosalna roznica. Primo: bialy jest slodkawo-kwaskowaty. Czarny jest wytrawno kwasny. Secundo: w czarnym jest bez porownania wiecej tanin. Az do dretwienia ust. Czegos a la kiszonka tez w czarnym mozna sie doszukac ;) oraz winnych klimatow. jedna ceche maja wspolna: w ustach pasuja do aromatow swoich. Oba maja dosc dlugie posmaki, przy czym Czarny ma cierpkawo-kwasny zas bialy slodkawy wrecz (moze przez picie na zmiane, bo wszak to tez falszuje nieco odczucia)

Nie ulega dla mnie watpliwosci, ze wersja Black Label jest bez porownania bardziej zlozona, szlachetna cy inse takietam slowa. Obie wersje sa smaczne, tylko, ze White Label truno traktowac jako typowego przedstawiciela lambikow. Ja wiem, ze nie byl dosladzany, ale ta wiedza niewiele zmienia ;) jest bardzo specyficzny, malo lambikowy.Black Label jest chyba najlepszym Gueuze jakie pilem w zyciu (duzo tego nie bylo, ale juz sie uzbieralo nascie). Wiec liczbowo to bedzie:

White Label: 3.6

Black Label: 4.0



Aha, wrazenia potwierdzone przez plec piekna lubiaca lambiki a nie wkrecona w kraft - slychac okrzyki o dolewke czarnego zas bialego dostalem ze slowami "dokoncz sobie" :)

Gehbe (297) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 16, 2016
Pours fairly clear deep gold with big stable offwhite head. Aroma of wild strawberry, citrus, zest, spice, lactic bacteria tang and brett funk. Tastes dry but not overly acidic. High carbonation, very dry but not brut. Lovely!

sjorsvdg (453) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2016
Een prima geuze met een smaakpalet met appel, azijn en tarwe. Gefilterd, wat het bier een zuiver en donkeroranje uiterlijk geeft.
