Melker (267) - Göteborg, - OCT 21, 2012
Yellow clear liquid, kinda small white head. Aroma reminds me of apple cider, sour apple maybe some lemon, slightly yeasty. Very dry taste, sour apples again. High carbonation. I’ve tried sour ales before but this was the first gueuze ever for me. Can’t say that i’m a big fan of sour beer but this was decent, i enjoyed it.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2017 På tap från Bier CAB i Barcelona. Klar, gyllengul kulör med lätt vit skumkrona. Doft av äppelkart, citrus och kokta grönsaker. Vattnig, lätt syrlig kropp med liten kolsyra. Smak desamma som doft.

Helsdon (420) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2017 It just seem a little... bland, for a geuse that is. Sure it delivers a decent astringent sourness, with some reasonable sweetness to offset, but it feels like it's lacking in complexity.

PlutonowyMan (865) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2017
Kolor przypomina słabą herbatę z nieznacznym zamgleniem. Piana biała, wysoka i bardzo trwałą, tworzy sporych rozmiarów pióropusz. Aromat owocowy, są jabłka, agrest, mirabelki, nuty octowe kwaśne i chyba te najbardziej wyczekiwane, dzikie i wiejskie. Smak: tutaj klasycznie kwaśno i nieco cierpko. Kwaśne jabłka, ocet, niedojrzały agrest, MInimalnie słodkie mirabelki, które przełamują nieco kwaśność. Delikatnie wiejskie akcenty domykają walory smakowe tego wyśmienitego Gueuze. Na finiszu delikatna goryczka, przypominająca tę z pestek winogron. Średni nasycenie nadaje świeżości. Ciało średnie.

Dahlstrom (431) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2017
375 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden with a large white head. Moderate tart aroma, green apples, funky yeast, barnyard, wood and pilsnermalt. Moderate sour taste. Medium body, sticky at first, dry finish.

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.

cfrancis (3536) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2017
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

jandorris (787) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 29, 2017
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.

3.5
Marduk (8218) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 25, 2017
Tap. Hazy golden color. Small size, beige head, stays. Sour, apricots, leather, acidic in aroma. Acidic, peaches, apricots, bit earthy, wheaty in taste. Fruity, apricots in aftertaste. Acidic mouthfeel. Solid brew.
