Bottle; only my second or third for the style. It has been a while; so lets see what I think of the style now. Poured a hazy, dirty gold color with medium sized white head. Aroma is funky with yeast, fruit, oak/earth and apple. Soft on the palate and dry. Flavor surprised me in that I didnt find it overly funky or sour. Maybe my palate has developed with time. Flavor of fruits, apples, earth, yeast; both a little sweet and sour. Minimal hop presence. Drinkable and pretty tasty.

Pours a hazy golden/yellow color with a thick white foamy head. The aroma is quite funky with pears, tart apples, and some banana present. Flavors are pears, sweet apples, followed by some more tart apples and a funky finish.

Tasted at Logans house with Logan and deftim13. Bottle from Logan. Its been a long time since I had a gueuze, and I was really looking forward to trying this one. Barnyard, hay, funky awesome aroma. Light yellow color with a hint of amber. Small fluffy head. Flavor was mild, sourness was also mild. Very tasty.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2010 First Geuze I ever had. I really liked it, lots of flavor... very refreshing. Im going off memory here though so Ill need to re-rate when I get another bottle. RE-RATE: Wow holy crap thats a bad rating up there, so bad that Im keeping it. Either way HeyKevin was kind enough to share a 2002 bottle of this stuff with us the other night although my score will stay right where it is Id love to add a few tasting notes. Pours a hazy golden color with some head. The aroma is very funky with leather and some barnyard stuff. The flavor is likewise dusty & funky with old woody flavors, alas the sourness in this Geuze is very muted which makes this a very different kind of Geuze, pretty cool really.

who wants the funk? you got the funk... but not much else (EDIT- strike that ... nice tannins balance) someone through me in the dirty laundry and shoved me in the barn ... dry, soft not too bad... Update later that night... why serving size matters - the more i drink this the higher its rating goes, it just grows on me (tea???)

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2007
0.375 l bottle. Hazy golden color with long lasting head. Acidic and grapefruity aroma with vanilla and lemon. Acidic, grapefruity and lemony flavor with wild yeast bitterness and peachy fruitiness. Quite soft for a dry gueuze, pleasant and easy to drink.

KimJohansen (10451) - Frederiksberg C, Dnemark, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2007
Hazy golden with short lasting head. Mildly sour aroma with good complexity. Barnyard flavor with grapefruit and mildly sour. Not powerfull as Cantillon or 3 Fonteinen, but very drinkable.

11/7/07 From the bottle. Aroma is of tart banana, paintlike, with sour lacticacid , buttery, earthy and oaky. You couldnt fit any more in here. Appearance is light hazy straw with a medium white head. Flavor is earthy, but still clean, with a tart finish. This is quite well balanced, but has a light nail polish note and low bittering. Mouthfeel is medium/light bodied, spritzy, dry and warm. Overall, very complex, not as earthy or dusty as I expected; quite well balanced for a sour.

Whoa Nellie...I can smell this stuff from several inches from the glass...who let the wet horse in the house!! Gold color, small head. Aroma of persimmon, lemon, pluots, straw, wheat, nectarine, peach, and barnyard funk. Significant carbonation...a mix of sweet, sour, dry and funky flavors...not as smooth as the Girardin but intriguing and tasty. My bottle says good till 2026!

Courtesy of Mcbackus. Pours a cloudy orange with white foamy head. Hints of sour fruits, spices, yeast, and more sour fruits. Finishes very tarty, but easy to drink. Very impressed with this style of brew.
