Riddle me this theoman... Gueuze?Aw, snap. Ya got me. Of course, the explanation is that it's not a word of Dutch origin.
Not trying for a gotcha, truly interested in knowing the correct pronunciation. I know the beer, I'd to be able to call it something besides "yum!"
Well, it turns out it's not exactly a gotcha. I had to ask my wife about this one. I pronounce it in a Frenchy sort of way, with the hard "g" and without the "eh" at the end and nobody bothered to correct me, so I assumed it was right. Well, it is, sorta. I guess it's enough of a Brussels word and everybody is confused enough that it doesn't really matter how it's pronounced, as long as there's effort not to make the vowel sound like "oo." Again, it's "u" thing. The guy in the video above makes a reasonable effort on the vowel, but he uses the hard "g" with the "eh" at the end, sort of combining the Flemish and French. I suppose that's fine as well, but I've never heard it pronounced like that before. My wife pronounces it like a true Flemish person, with the hairball "g" and the short "eh" at the end.
