thomas15 (689) - Alabama, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Typical oude gueuze aroma, stanky, horse blanket, some sweetness, lemon. Semi opaque gold with rocky two finger head. Lightly sour, more on the tart side with some sweetness. Very refreshing, but lacking in depth and complexity.

Bottle from LCBO. Pours a deep golden yellow with a white head. Lovely clean sour grape, green apple, and tart lemon aroma, with prominent oaky notes. Tastes of sour grapes, tart green apple, with some lemon and woodiness. Long dry finish.

Pours golden yellow with a small white top. Aroma is light tartness, with some fruit and funk. Taste is a little funk, a little fruit, a little wood and a little flowery. All good, nice and delicate and awesome.

The beer pours a hazy straw colour with a generous off-white head that lasts a while. The aroma is sour grains, wood, some tart fruity notes, and yeast. The mouthfeel is very light bodied, and highly effervescent, very a propos for the style. The flavour has white wine characteristics with a light fruit tartness. It is a very good lambic

Fruity aroma, pours golden colour and clear. Sour taste wasn't expected as not common among the Belgian ales I've sampled. Not my favourite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2017 W aromacie delikatna skóra i cała masa owoców, jabłka, cytrusy. W smaku bardzo fajny kwas, taki jakby agrestowy, może winogrona ze skórką.

Piwo lekko metne w kolorze ciemno pomaranczowym z obfita biala sredniopecherzykowa piana. Dzikosc jak to w lambiku, zielone owoce i swiezy kwaskowy posmak. Zdecydowanie wytrawne z lekko tanicznym finiszem wysyceniem na wysokim poziomie. Bardzo dobre!

Bottle from LCBO. Pours an opaque deep golden colour with a small head that dissipates quickly. Fresh fruity aroma with notes of grapes and apples. Taste matches the aroma with a wine-like backbone with notes of barnyard toward the finish. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Alcohol is well concealed.

Color dorado amarillento, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención y nunca llega a disiparse del todo). Carbonatación media (perfectamente medida, bajo mi punto de vista, cosa que no ocurre en cualquier Gueuze). Textura acuosa y ligeramente efervescente. Aroma sidroso, ligeramente ácido (sin tirar demasiado a vinagre), achampanado (recuerda a algún Brut). En boca hay bastante acidez, bien medida. Frutal (manzana y limón), madera, final que recuerda a madera vieja o mueble bar. Ligerísimo amargor final. Seca, no demasiado pero la boca te pide otro trago. Buena.

4.2
Zilverenmaan (248) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2017
Aroma very noticable and complex: tart at first, then mostly sour apples. Taste very complex too: sour apples, followed by a distinctive and complex tartness, becominging softer towards the finish, some subtle bitterness, lingering. If I have to critisize: aftertaste maybe a bit too thin but all the subtle taste are still there to enjoy. Carbonation fine.
