weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2012
Cloudy golden / copper colour with a beige head. Typical farmyard lambic aroma. Flavour didnt really hit the high notes for me, just not my thing I suppose, bit sweet for my liking perhaps.

Unclear and golden beer. Very sour sour, citrus, acidic notes and earthly notes. Very likeable.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Dusty basement notes are enlivened by citrus fruit and wheat biscuits before an acetic punch seals this dry Gueuze.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam tops the cloudy dark yellow.
-The flavor profile was more intense than the aroma, as well as more revealing.
-White grapes are part of the fruity character tasted.
-The frothy effervescence, made of tiny bubbles, increases drinkability for such an intense brew.
-Sourness is prominent, and refreshment is guaranteed, if you can tolerate this level of intensity in acidity, that is.

Finn (7039) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2011
Fra flaske i Hanssens Artisanaal under Tour de Geuze 2011. Ser ut som eplejuice. Uklar. Lavt skum. Syrlig fruktaroma. Samme med smaken. Sprudlende. Lett, litt syrlig ettersmak.

LIVEFAST (62) - Mount Misery, Valley Forge, - NOV 23, 2011
750mL poured into the Tilquin tumbler. Pours a light copper/goldenrod with a finger of bone dry head. Aromas of sharp brett, hay, body odor, and lemon. This geuze is still pretty new...notes of sharp, complex funk, cheese, lemon peel, white grapes. I think a few years will round this geuze out nicely.
