xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Aroma is funky as shit! Some cheese and aspirin, barn, and bitter sourness. Damn! Taste is sour, mineral, slightly fishy, clean, lemon. Finishes slightly bitter, very sour, and well balanced. Wow!

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2010
On tap @ Rattle N Hum Pours a copper-orange with very little head. Aroma is fruity and fairly faint with some citrus and orange. Light bodied and very sour with a nice finish.

Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 16, 2010
12.7oz Bottle. Bottled on: 080620. Poured a clear copper with a medium off-white head - head turns to thin layer that stays. Aroma: cheese, tart, sour apple, funk, notes of wood, fruit and earth. Taste: tart, mild sour, acidic upfront (almost like too young berries), notes of sour apple, fruit, wood, funk. Medium to thin body. Finish was good with some acidic burn in the throat. Overall a good brew - not that complex, but balanced well enough.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2010
Aroma is quite fresh and fruity. Peach and apricot along with a bit of soft sweetness. The palate is lightly sweet as well. Just a touch of horsey funk. A bit of rhubarb-like tartness on the back. There is a little bit of wildness with an almost Fantome-like character. A bit of soft peachiness. Id love to see this aged out a bit. Its good but tasting very young.

callmemickey (4343) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 2008 vintage (375ml) - opened October 2010.

A: Hazy straw colored body. Thin creamy white head. Spotty, sudsy lacing.

S: Mellow lemon, hay and green grapes. Not particularly dynamic, but quite pleasant.

T: Pleasant. Thats probably the best way to describe the flavor. This is a very mellow, unoffensive gueuze. Nice sour lemon, hay and green grapes. Doesnt have much in the way of funk.

M: Medium bodied. Gentle rolling carbonation. Light sour finish.

O: A thorough pleasant gueuze. Certainly doesnt have the complexity and depth of the better gueuzes, but there are no off flavors or characteristics that might make a beer unenjoyable

rubbishystuff (2363) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 This was much more drinkable than I thought. Tart and some lemony-ness but somewhat mellow. Serving: Bottle

Svesse (7949) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2010
(Bottle, Monks Caf Wallingatan, Stockholm) Golden amber colour with brief, off-white head. No sediment. Fruity, tart nose with citrus, grapefruit, barnyard and underlying notes of apricots. Fruity, slightly acidic taste with notes of citrus, grapefruit, sour grapes, barnyard and a slightly harsh acidity in a dry, well balanced finish. Medium body. I must admit I didnt really expect such a well made traditional gueuze from this brewery. Very nice.

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Clear gold our with a champagne-like white head which fades, leaving a coarse lace. Tart and light-bodied, but with and underlying malty sweetness that cannot be missed. Unripe berries, faint woodiness and a complex finish with multiple hints of flowers, grains and fruits. My first foray into a gueuze, thanks to the staff at Bottleworks for a great recommendation!

sfhodense (4789) - Odense N, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Pours cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma is leather, barnyard and acidic. Flavour is leather, light phenolic smoke, barnyard. Very acidic, but still also has a sweet note.

Haggerty (14) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Golden color with a few yeast floaties. Lemony, earthy,herbal, tangy nose. This beer is medium bodied with good concentration. Doesnt taste like the blend is too old. Pretty clean tasting for a gueuze with fruity white wine notes. This is a very drinkable gueuze.
