Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - AUG 26, 2011
750 ml botlle, vintage 2009. A hazy/cloudy medium to dark blonde beer, with a huge, fizzy, mostly diminishing white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately to heavily yeasty (barnyard, mold, cheese, duaty basement), with a note of lemon and green apple. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, heavily acidic. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, dry long finish with light bitterness. Impressive yeasty and funky aroma, average appearence IMHO, but good balance and complexity. Maybe pricey, but very good.

KyotoLefty (9642) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2011
2011 Bottle at RBESG Grand Tasting, held at Dean Swift. Cheers to Chriso for another great geuze. Pretty golden color, almost pastel. Very funky citrus nose, stank-ass, lemon rind. Really funky and dry nose. Flavor is sweet lemon, though also very sour, lactic, with leather and the ol horse blanket. Nice bland of sour, funk, sweet. Great.

j12601 (9798) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottles of the 09 and the 11 provided by Chuck at Glimmerglass prior to BCTC so we could do a side by side. They pour a hazed amber with some light grey floaties in the 09, and a large white head. Big funk, wood and brett, the wood being more prominent in the 11. The 11 is a bit cheesier and funkier, both having nice big funk and wood notes, brett and acid. Big acid, cheesy funk, malty, funky and nice acid. More acid on the 09 than the 11, with the 11 tending toward a bit more funk and wood. Both really nice.

skortila (5473) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2011
Bottled at In de Wildeman, 2009 version. The aroma has fruits, citrus, some aprikots, horseblanket. Hazy, orange coloured beer with a big white, foamy head. The taste is moderate sour/tart, slight sweet. Citric, very fruity. Quite a lot body for a gueuze and smooth. Very nice one.

cucuma (89) - kontich, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2011
I have 6 bottles 0,75l and tasted it @ the tour de geuze 2011. Very young but nice blend. Well balanced and sourish taste. Look forward when it has an age...

Ung och snll doft. Balanserad stor syrlighet av pplen. Lagom eftersmak. Syrlig men dog len. Gtt-gtti-gtt-gtt!

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Thanks to Godofthunder for sharing this! Mega blend is right. Tart citrus notes on the nose, musty. Pours a dark golden color. Tart citrusy with old wood notes. super funky, sour dry finish. Amazing to get to try!

caesar (6819) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2011
Bottled at In de Wildeman, 2009 version. Slight hazy orange golden color, huge rocky head like champagne. And thats one of the first things that come into mind while taking the glass towards the nose: champagne like aromas, grapes, pineapple, slight citrus, mango. A lot of (tropical) fruit so to say, together with the traditional horseblanket and barnyard aroma, but very fruity. Moderate tartness, slight sweet. Not as harsh as some Cantillons, but full bodied and smooth (for a gueuze), champagne-like. Good stuff, but bloody expensive!

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nrresundby, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2011
2011 Bottle. Pours a nice hazy orange/dark blond color with a frothy white head. Aroma is filled with funk, old musty notes, barnyard, wet hay, vinous notes, white grapes, green apples and vinegar. The flavor is super complex and fairly tart/sour, with lots of funk. I get loads of barnyard, wet hay, green apples, white grapes and other light fruits, white balsamic vinegar, white wine notes and some dusty old notes. The body is medium with a pretty dry mouthfeel. Overal a really good Gueuze, definietly something worth seeking out!

deyholla (10709) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle shared by Ari, thanks! Poured a cloudy/hazy gold with a white head that started and remained at the edges. Aroma had a light horse blanket note with tart to sour fruits and a bit of lemon. Flavor was similar with a nice funk note that worked well with the sour fruits that grew to a slight acidity in the finish.
