oh6gdx (26012) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2007
Bottled. Deep golden colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is sour apricot and wood along with some slight sweetness. Flavour is apricot, other fruits and quite sugary. Some slight wooden hints too.

BeerBiker (1414) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2007
A pleasent geueze, which is nice for newcomers, so if you are for the Cantillons then forget this. But refreshing it is in the summerheat with notes of sweet sourgrapes. Sparkling darkorange hazy head with summernotes as flowers, herbal and sourfruits. For my wife!

robinvboyer (4360) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 corked 375ml bottle. again, same as the mort subite geuze, this is lacking in the tart, and sourness. its thin, and wattery, not very pleasant.

Eructoblaster (4049) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2007
Bottle - 250ml. Hazy gold body topped with a thin white creamy head. Good hoppy aroma with herbal, flowery, and apple notes. Its malty taste is rather thin and ends with a short sour finish. Not impressed...

piscator34 (2386) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 28, 2007
Light amber and hazy in colour. Moderate prickly carbonation. Aromas of lemons, wet leather, and wet cedar wood. Very different in the mouth with notes of sticky sweet pale malts, stale hops, plastic, and apple skins. Too sweet and not funky or complex enough. At least it smelled not too bad. Thanks to lubiere for the extra!

leaparsons (10219) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle. Golden brown with a small head. Aromas are sugar and light fruit with good acidicy. Flavours are initially sweet with brown sugar and some fruit. Some caramel with citrus. OK.

Fin (10067) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2007
Bottle picked up from Beers of Europe late April. Poured light amber in colour with a small white head, slightly acidic aroma but tempered somewhat, almost like when you are sweating off some cooking apples in a pan with a bit of dark sugar. Taste is a bit sweet for a gueuze, but pleasant enough some tangy appleness comes through again with an oakiness, enjoyable but nowhere near the best of this style.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2007
Almost clear dark blonde body topped by a white ring of foam. Initial flavour of rotten apple and corn syrup paves the way to an unpleasant dry and sandy finish. What the hell is that sugary sweetness doing in a gueuze. Mouth drying tartness that is so pleasant in real gueuzes is replaced here by a plastic flavour. I did a quick advanced search in ratebeer to see where the St-Louis Gueuze ranks in the Lambic-Gueuze category. Seeing it pretty much at the bottom was about as surprising as learning that the dude with the red uniform on a Star Trek away mission is gonna get killed.
