Interesting, and one of the better that I have tried from this style, but not being a fan to begin with it is hard for me to give this a true on true rating. Sour musty fruit aromas, with a bit of musky sweatiness and horse saddle. Some strong lemon acidity, with some funky acidity and vinous vinegar notes. Decent, but not something I could drink all by myself again.

pjotrapostou (75) - POLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Zapach słomiany, lekko kwaśny. W smaku jest kwasowość, siano, lekko wytrawna goryczka, dosyć kwaśny posmak.Nieco wodnista struktura. Wszystkie smaki mogłyby być lepiej ułożone, ale pije się dość przyjemnie.

Pours clear amber with a large white head. Very lively. Aroma is grass and funk. Taste is citrus bitter, funk, mouldy cheese, sweaty socks.

KraftowyJakup (115) - POLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Złoto-bursztynowe, zamglone, ładna piana i lacing. W aromacie słodkie białe winogrona, wino, ocet winny. W smaku średnio kwaśne, winne, dość wysoko wysycone, przyjemnie cierpkie, trochę taniczne. Po ogrzaniu wychodzi nuta dzikich drożdży, funk, stajnia. Niezłe, choć w smaku dużo się nie dzieje.

It is cloudy golden and very highly carbonated. It is true to the champagne-like mouthfeel they claim. Good beer, but just okay for a gueze. Bottle from co-op.

Yonass (23) - WRCLW, POLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Aparycja szampana, spore nagazowanie. Aromaty końskiej derki, stajni, leśne. Wszystko czego można się spodziewać. Czuć taką owocowość, cierpkość, dość kwaśne, posmaki szampana.

koleminer20 (3069) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle shared with ebone1988 for the Koleminer20 turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. 750 mL bottle, 2011 vintage. The pour is a darker golden orange with a thicker white head that falls slowly leaving a good bit of lace. The aroma is strange. there is a funkiness about it, but the back end is all full of sweet sugary young lambic. It’s not that good at all. Could be worse. The flavor is not good. There is a light sourness to start, but then it gets funky and an orange rind just takes over. It’s bitter and dry, light citrus, without a lot of sour or funk. This is not good. The mouth feel is a little syrupy with a softer carbonation and a lingeringly dry and bitter citrus rind. I’m not feeling this at all. It’s definitely not a gueuze, that’s for sure.

ebone1988 (1659) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle shared with koleminer20 for the Koleminer20 Turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. 2011 vintage. Aroma is funk, tart, barnyard, bitter, slight sour, slight sweet. Appearance is darker amber, light brush head, hazy. Taste is orange peel. Minerals, Maybe. Some funk, some tart, but mostly just dry orange rind. Bitter. Not good. Mouthfeel is incredibly dry. Light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, dry citrus rind aftertaste. Overall, this is a really bad example for the style.

cmacklin (1011) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 4, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with yeast particles floating around and a large, fluffy, long lasting, white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet, sour aroma of green apple, orange, lemon, grapefruit, vinegar and horse blanket. Sweet, acidic flavour of grapefruit, lemon, orange, green apple, vinegar, dust and wheat with a dry, sour, white wine like finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Nice.

Samuel214 (820) - SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2017
Flaska på Bishops, Örebro. Ca 1,5 år gammal. Orange med liten skumkrona. Fin välbalanserad syra i doften med citrus, citronsaft, stenfrukt, lite äppelsyra, gröna vindruvor. Mellanstor, något torr. Ganska aggressiv syra, klara och rena smaker, lite vitt vin och fatkaraktär med lätt funkig avslutning. Bra "standard"-gueuze, ren och klar och stämmer på de flesta punkter. Ganska stor "rakt på"-syrlighet.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a white soapy head. Aroma of gooseberry, grapefruit, vinegar, citrus, barnyard and weak sulfur. Taste of green apples, citrus, grapefruit, some sweeter almost orange notes behind. Also some vinegar, barnyard and weak oak.
