illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Bottle from Corridor Wine in Laurel MD. Pours a hazy golden amber with a white head. Funky aroma of lemon, hay, and apple. Medium bodied with a semi fine spritzy mouthfeel. Flavor of pale Belgian malts, lemon, apple, and sour candy. Not overly lactic or acetic - pretty tame but very drinkable. I could chug this on a hot day. Great gateway example of the style.

bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip. Appearance: Hazy honey with stark white head. Aroma: Horseblanket funk, apple, vinegar and oak. Obviously smells tart and dry. Taste: Mostly tart with vinegar, oak, and granny smith apples. Nice spicy kick to complement the tartness, although the apple taste provides a mild sweetness as well. Palate: Fairly high carbonation, with a light, crisp body. Finishes dry and tart as expected. Overall: Quite refreshing and tasty, despite being a little one dimensional. Quality Gueuze.

Dangerously good beer....balance of tart and sweet so fine that fruit seems an irrelevant syrupy adjunct....warms the heart and soul while keeping the tongue alive, excellent (Locolatl)

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2011 (Bottled) Youre not meant to like this if you dig Gueuze put screw the pretense as this stuff is actually pleasant and refreshing; sweet but with a cool little leather like tartiness An easy going break from the customary hardcore Gueuzes I love.
Earlier Rating: 7/31/2011 Total Score: 3.7
(375ml, No cork) The place ...a Cantillon tulip....This is showcasing mellow Gueuze but I need funky shit in my life to function .....the nose offered cheesey customs but without any real pungent depth ..some rich yougut and eggy notes too; Its drinks with lots of lemon ,leather covering the palate, brett is shy , stale cheese that forgot about the funk. A bit safe but retains a classy vibe .

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2011
On tap @ Pizza Port San Clamente. Hazy golden brew with a decent amount of head. Smells awesome - funk, lemon zest, grapefruit, tangerine, oak, and floral hops. Flavor is tart and woody with apricot and a good amount of sourness. Delicious!

laiti (8173) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2011
37,5 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 25.09.2010
Tasted in blind tasting with 13 other gueuzes, this one placed 12.
Bright orange colour with small head. Aroma does not feel like a gueuze. It has metal and spices. Flavour has spices and some earthy notes. Not good.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours pale golden with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is full of sour green apples, lemon, some grass. Flavor is pretty mild. Sour apple sweet tart. Tartness is more of the citrusy than vinegary variety. The funk is restrained. Great starter gueuze; also makes for a nice, refreshing one for those looking for something drinkable. Great balance; nice palate.

Reynolds314 (3375) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 18, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 Rerate- Harsh chlorine and sulfer dominate this one. The tartness is decent and not too acidic but overall this is a bust.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light golden orange with billowy white head. Big sour / tart fruit aromas. A little earthiness in support. Flavours are much the same. Citrus sourness and a little acidity. Lively carbonation. Good gueuze
