PaulHegedus (85) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2009
Large bottle, with cork and cap. The beer is a lively hazy golden colour with a thick, fairly permanent white head. Slight lacework on the glass. Aroma is fairly tart, musty, with some light fruit, apple and what could be brett. Mouthfeel is quite spritzy, fairly light to medium in body. The flavour is wonderful: very approachable sourness, tart fruit, light grapefruit, lemon, dryness in the finish. Really wonderful.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Yellow-orange pour with a thin white head. Funky, mildewy aroma with sour lemon notes and vinegar. Very sour flavor with lemon and citrus. Very woody. Nice lambic.

Merrill (79) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Lovely pour of bright light yellow, somewhat cloudy, with a snowy white head. Tart aroma of early fruit. Immediate sour hit on the tongue resolving quickly and refreshingly into lemon, kumquat, cherries, the best parts of chardonnay, very refreshing and tart. Effervescence is slightly champagne-like!

(750ml corked and capped bottle) Bottled October 2007. Pours an opaque yellow with a nice big fluffy head and oily bubbles. Nose is sour cherries, some barnyard funk, and nice acidity that’s not vinegar-like but just right. Taste is really good too. Very sour but not vinegar, in a way reminds me of Flintstones chewable vitamins without the bitterness. Sour cherries are in the taste. The finish is still sour, makes my mouth water it’s so good, and some nice funky flavors are sticking around. Honestly one of the best finishes I’ve had in a beer and the carbonation is nice and champagne-like. Really a superb sour beer.

Drake (13654) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2009
355 mL bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium head. Fair head retention and lacing. Tart and slightly bitter aroma with notes of earthy must, herbs, celery and citrus. Fairly dry. Taste is tart citrus notes with earthy herbal notes and slight funk. Medium bodied. Decent gueuze.

3.6
andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2009
Yellowish golden with a suprisingly long lasting white head. Aroma is brettanomyces and light lemon. Flavour is similar but a tad milder and leaves no bigger impression. Mouthfeel is a bit watery but adds to its drinkability.

Colour... golden with a slight ecru head. Nose... yeast and spice. Palate... yeasty, doughy, biscuits, clove, citrus, slightly musty with a mildly bitter and lengthy finish.

Bottle at ABC beer tasting. Pours a foggy gold with an off-white head. Light and sweet with an undertone of tartness. Flavor was quite sour tart through out. I feel like there was a touch of nuttiness.

3.7
darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2009
750ml. Pours a hazy amber with a small white head. Nose has some horse blanket, lemon zest, lime, grapefruit and wood notes. Not near as bracing as many gueze’s this is an entry level gueze while still true to the style. High acidity but not over the top. Moderately sour but with notes of wood and vanilla to balance. Some lemon and citrus carry out the balance. The best I’ve had from Lindemans by a wide margin and a very solid gueze in its own right.
