Pours the color of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice with a light filmy head. Smell is funky barnyard sourness. Taste is mild, bland, faintly sweet and a hint of funky sourness. Pretty mild overall with a light lingering funky flavor.

smith4498 (3588) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2008
Pours a hazy straw color with big white head. Aroma is fruity and sour, very funky. Flavors are weird. This is the first gueuze I have tried. Flavors of oak and sourness with a dry finish. Some musty notes. Medium body with soft carbonation and a velvety mouthfeel. The more I drink, the more I can appreciate the style. I look foward to tying more of this style.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2008
Bottle. Maproom. Light barnyard funk on the nose. Slightly floral with hints of lemon rind and mint as well. Pours a bright cloudy yellow with a nice white head. Only mildly tart and sour on the tongue. Slightly oxidized. A hint of wet hay. Mint. Old oak. Interesting but uninspired. Wheres the funk?

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 1, 2008
UPDATED: APR 8, 2012 Re-rate 4/1/12: Bottle shared at the 3rd Israeli Sour Tasting. Bottled 10/09. Hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma of barnyard and light leathery notes. Flavor has light sweetness, bit of malt and lovely bretty sourness. Medium-bodied. Nice and refreshing, but maybe still a bit too young. 8/3/7/3/16=3.7

(3/2/08) Bottle sample at Zythos Bier Festival 2008 in Sint Niklaas. Bottled 2/07. A rather clear golden color with a white head. Nice barnyard aroma. Sour citrusy flavor (lemon, some grapefruit). A bit bitter in the finish. Pleasant softly carbonated mouthfeel. A great Geuze. 7/3/8/4/16=3.8

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a fluffy, white head that diminishes to a thin cap; patchy lace. The aroma is of musty, funky, sour citrus up-front. It opens up as it airs out and as I swirl the glass, going from fairly muted to full-on tart and sour. Medium-bodied with creamy-soft carbonation transitioning to a tart, dry finish. The flavor more-or-less follows the nose with a mild vegetal note at the swallow. This being my first gueuze, it didnt blow me away, but its interesting enough that I will explore others that I come across.
