Not so sour, fruity with almond bitterness and astringency. Sour thirst trencher.

tap at Gent in Amsterdam - A lambic with sugar and stevia added? What on earth? Why? Especially the stevia... just... why? Okay, this beer is definitely sweet. Theres some funky tartness in there too. Its medium bodied Despite being baffled by the stevia and the fact that the beer seems to be more of a faro than a gueuze, it still tastes pretty good. I think Id have liked their fond tradition gueuze more though.

Icedwarf (1569) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2016
Donkergeel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is flets en weinig inspirerend, heeft totaal niets van een goede geuze, lijkt nergens op, hooguit mislukte limonade. Smaak is in elk geval niet vies dus gewoon op gedronken. Mislukt product wat mij betreft.

Frothmeister (787) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours a clear caramel colour with a thin tan head. On the nose, tart apple, sour cherry, light citrus, and candy-like notes. Taste wise, lighter bodied with sour cherry, dry apple cider like notes, and a light musty note that leads into watery domestic malt, a light hit of "barnyard", a faint bit of cinnamon in the finish, more of the mildly tart apple cider notes and a big bready/yeasty note in the bitter finish. Its not complex at all. Its sort of like the Coors Light of lambics, which is a good thing, because sometimes you dont want a bottle of puckering acid for yourself. Its super refreshing, and there is enough going on to make it interesting. In the world of Gueuze, this isnt great, but overall in the world of beer I would take this over a lot of other mediocre brews.

Hopverdju (1119) - BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2016
Koperkleurig bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: wat zweetvoetgeur (overjaarse hop). Smaak: medicinale siroop. Iets sprankelende koolzuurprikkel, weinig body. Afdronk: licht zurig. Dit geuze? Geef mij maar hun Fond tradition.

RW80 (2491) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2016
25cl Bottle at home Appearance: Murky golden with a small white head. Arroma: Sweet, sugar, apples, bread, phenols light funk. Taste: Sweet, vegetables up front, phenols, bread,apples some funk. Below average bodiy, with light bubbly carbonation. Too Sweet, Maybe time can improve things, in the other case stick by Fond Tradition version, which is great.

sjogro (3766) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle at home as "Premium Gueuze Lambic". Murky hazel colored with thin white head. Aspartame and cardboard. Some grapelike fruitiness, but very little. A faint sourness in the background. Meeehhh.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a slightly veiled orangeish pale amber with a short lived white head. Aroma is unripe fruit, caramel and sour. Flavor is fruits, caramel, cherry, red apple. Loads of sugar. Finish is light tartness. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Did not feel much like a lambic or gueuze.

Im a fan of Gueze bit this one is a disappointment. More sweet than sour, lacks og typical aromas.
