Bottle. Thanks dchmela. Poured hazy pale gold into a flute with a large white head. My first lambic in a long time. I was half expecting an offensive funkiness, but instead I got a pleasant vinous, fruity, sour and slightly funky aroma. Nice. Very tart, crisp flavor. Apples, grapes, doughy yeast flavors as well. Im pleasantly surprised by this refreshing beer.

37.5cl. bottle: Poured a bright copper (unusual as this is normally hazy) with a very nice large off-white head. Citrus, green apple, hay, slight bleu cheese, and a moderate farmyard funk. A metallic twinge behind the rest. Sometimes a sharp lactic acid pops through. Flavors of dry grapeskin and appleskin with a tart and tannic bite. Perhaps bite is too strong of a word. Green apple juice with some hints of wood and a dash or white wine vinegar take you through to the smooth and light finish where a green note and some tin come in. Always a good geuze that walks on the milder side.

Courtesy of Diane and CJ (thanks guys!). I admit right out front that Im not a big fan of gueuze. But I found this quite drinkable, which says something. Obviously it was starkly sour, fairly heavily sedimented with an orange body. (#3359, 3/28/2008)

Typically sour gueuze aroma. Hazy golden color with a decent white head. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. Starts lacticly sour. Has funk and socks. Bit of grapefruit fibre. However, it is all very mild and relatively smooth. Not at all shocking.

A hazy amberish body with a great white head. Notes of sour grapefruits and sour eructations. The nose is fruity with hints of butter, hay and stables!!

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle. Unclear golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma of sourness and little acidity. Mild flavour of sourness, but someway quite nice and refreshing.

joohefner (380) - Isla Vista, California, USA - MAR 16, 2008
cloudy pale gold with small frothy head. lemony, wet wood and hay aroma. medium light body. tart citric flavor with a spicy, moldy wood note, reminds me of bleu cheese. nice and funky, good for introducing someone to a geuze, its a good example but not too strong.

Thanks TheCheeseMan! Pours a cloudy yellow color with a large pillowy white head. Aroma is wonderful funk, horseblanket, and sourness. Taste is smooth, tart, and funky.

Pours a hazy orange with a white head. The nose is largely vinous with hints of light dried fruits. The flavor is sour, but not unpleasantly so, with hints of vinegar.
