An old bottle brought home from first trip to Belgium in 2010. I believe it is stamped with a BB date of July 2, 2012.

Poured into a chalice this gueuze is clear light amber, little head with nice lacing. Aromas of weak wild microbial funk, white wine ish with apple fruitiness. Taste is very mild, more like a juice than a sour funky gueuze. Easy drinking but not very exciting, low to medium carbonation, weak bodied. Overall a cheapy.

Drank from my Cantillon Geuze glass

A - Pours a darkish golden colour with a white head that reduces to a film.

S - Bits of funk and cut grass.

T - Sweet up front and through the entire taste. It draws into a slightly sour finish but sugars are still dominant. Bits of oak, white wine and apple present

M - Light to medium body with medium carbonation.

O - Never had a geuze like this before. Reminds me of a Faro for its sweetness. I prefer the sour varieties of this type of beer

I picked this up in a grocery store in Waterloo. I believe the name was Carfour. They had a great selection and the prices were amazing and with most of Europe they let you break single out of the pack. It poured amber with a red orange hue. The aroma was earthy and farm like. It had a pasture like taste with a pleasant sourness. The mouthfeel was average and had nothing to really speak of.

Pours a cloudy, orange/tan color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of slight alcohol, tartness, grapes, and slight sourness. Fits the style of a gueuze. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Strong tartness and sourness as well. Tastes of grapes, hint of sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and strong tartness and sour flavor. Overall, good appearance, aroma, feel, and body.

Poured into a glass at a hostel-bar in Brussels. Smells like processed lambic. Very bubbly. Things were going well until I took a sip and found it to be very sweet. I am sure that my expectations made this more shocking than it had to be, but since the packaging was so traditional with a heavy glass bottle and a Belgian style cork and cage I figured it would be real gueuze. It is not however, and though I try not to hold that fact against it, I am disappointed by the lifeless sweetened fizz in my glass. I wouldn't buy this again, but if you like sweetened pasteurized gueuze by all means give it a shot! A little cheesy bread and earth in the flavor, but have to search it out amongst all that sugar.
