detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a lightly hazed copper-gold with a briefly tall head of white foam. Tart aroma, not as tart as some lambics or geuuze, but still plenty tart and acidic. Interesting combination of funky flavors – hay, lemon, hard cider, a bit of white wine vinegar, and some cheese. Lively carbonation, and this may sound odd, but I found it rather smooth. Good stuff.

Cloudy amber beer with a large lasting dense white head. Aroma is sour,sharp and crisp with a similar flavour that just fills the mouth.....my first Geuze and very happy.

375ml bottle. not sure of vintage. pours a slightly hazy pale color with nice head. nose is rather funky sorta the barnyard thing and sour. at first sip this beer is really sour. second sip you get more of the complexities. starts off mildly sweet just for an instant then quickly a very dry tartness. finish is extremely dry. actually not an extremely sour gueuze, but very refreshing.

Pours a hazy blonde color, noticable natural carbonation. Keeps a small white head. Aroma is barnyardy, some hay. Sour, fruity taste, minimal funk in the palate compared to the aroma. Not overly sour, and a touch sweet. Not bad.

Boutip (6374) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2006
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color gueuze with a big foamy white head with great retention. Aroma consists of light horse blanket, funky yeast and some light green apple. Taste is sour with a nice funky touch and with a low acidity level, which I did appreciate. Not as overly complex as some other gueuze producers or blenders out there but still very much enjoyable.

thanks to my brother Chris for this one. pours golden/dark tan and cloudy with large head. very sour aroma. nicely sour with a touch of fruit. very crisp and clean to be very thirst quenching. I need to try this in the summer. I did not think I’d like this style but very good

3.3
LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 25, 2006
Cold 375ml bottle: Pours a clear golden orange color with ivory bubbles around the edges. Aroma is of strong yeast, citrus, farmyard and sour notes. Taste is mostly tart and sour. Crisp and zestfully carbonated with a watery texture. Ends quick with a light citrus and sweet malt aftertaste. Interesting and unique old world style beer.

Bottle. My 1st geuze!! And I am happy to say I was not disappointed! Pours a cloudy golden/brownish color, with a fairly massive head. Sour aroma, with a little fruitiness. Flavor was sour, but in a relatively subtle & enjoyable way. Very crisp, clean and refreshing! Very tasty. I look forward to other geuzes.
