"A: Cloudy golden in color with a finger of white head. Nice lacing with a large bubbled cap.
S: Funk, tart, grassy and apple-like.
T: Same as the smell, really. This is pretty sour, but not overpowering...well balanced, I’d say. I like the apple quality this has a good bit.
M: Tart and dry.
O: I don’t have a lot of experience with gueuzes, but this is enjoyable. I’m not sure if I’d get this again, but it makes me want to try more from this style."

On tap at Ashley’s Ann Arbor. Pours is hazy gold with an orange hue and a white ring for a head. Sour citric aroma. Flavor is also sour citric acid with hints of biscuit and green apple, a little vinegar, fairly dry, at least in the finish. This was pretty good; definitely not very complex, but what was there was good. BrewBoxer (2636) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Bottle. Light tan color. Tasye is sour, acid lactic taste. Really tart and bitter but easy drinking. Nice beer musinj6 (506) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Pours a hazy golden with medium head that lasts a couple of minutes and diminishes with no lacing. Aromas of lemon and sour apple. Moderately sour taste. I cannot appreciate any malt flavors given the strong sour component. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very different beer. This is my first Gueuze. It’s good. hoosiers1994 (684) - Maryland, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle poured into a tulip is gold color with thin white head. Aromas are funk, lemon, tart apple, and a bit of cereal. Taste is funky, lemon, acidic, some cereal maltiness. Finish is dry and crisp. Very good for the price.

375mL bottle with a date of 2011.07.06. Purchased at Rick’s in Alexandria for $5.49 this afternoon. Served in a Grote Dorst mini gueuze tumbler.
Pours a clear light golden color with plenty of visible carbonation. Initial foamy white heady quickly recedes to half an inch and has some good staying power. Light lacing and a thin cap throughout. The nose is mostly acidic with a bit of lemon. Not too much funk, and the same goes for the flavor. Nothing off really, just balanced in a different direction than I would go. Light, crisp body with a fairly-heavy lemon-like acidity through the finish, which is quite dry. A decent gueuze, especially for the price. planky84 (3261) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours golden amber with a white head. Green apple, cheese, chive aroma with a little sweetness balancing out the sour nose very nicely indeed. Very tart, dry flavour. Green apples, lemon juice and lemon sherbet. Dry, sour finish. Pleasant. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Draft at Fountainhead. Rare to see a gueuze on draft. Pours a hazy deep gold with a dissipating white mousse. Nose is a bit odd. Slightly vegetal with a bit of biscuit and vinegar. Bright citrus is there but somehow is just a bit strange. On tasting, nice level of soft tartness and then a big biscuity note before finishing somewhat acetic. Far from the top as far as gueuze goes. jandd1983 (4330) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JAN 16, 2012
It poured a golden color with a medium white head. The aroma was a bit cidery with some barnyard hints and a good bit of sweat. The flavor was very dry and very sour with a little cider taste. BelgBeerGeek (1308) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 4, 2012
