Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Bottle shared generously by 3/4. A gusher. The pungent, cheesy aroma fills the air. The lively carbonation ends up working well in its favor, as the head on this baby lasts forever! The beer is hazy, dark orange. The aroma has a deep undercurrent of spice like bay leaf. Also grapefruit juice and pith. Is highly carbonated, but not in an annoying way. Is refreshing, light, and juicy. The herbal spice in the aroma does not fully carry over into the flavors, which are more along the lines of pure pith bitterness. The layers of complexity are outstanding. This is a beer that just keeps giving.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 Bottle. Aroma has notes of lemon, sour fruits, leather, barnyard funk, wood and pepper. Very nice. Medium hazy orange amber hue with a large off-white head that stuck around and left good lace. Flavor is medium sweet, heavy sour and tart. Palate is medium bodied, overly acidic and lively carbonated. Overall a wonderful Gueuze. Complex nose, gorgeous appearance and uber sour. Loved it.

peteinSD (1362) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle from Dan - thanks! Let’s start 2012 with a world class gueuze. Bottle was stored for weeks in the fridge prior to opening and there was no gushing. Pours a hazy, light rust orange that looks fiery in direct light. Fluffy white head that leaves a bit of foamy lacing down the sides of the glass. Aroma is dry must up front followed by focused cheese rind, some off-funk odors, lemon, and a clean wheat or grain component. I do not get any bright fruit notes. Taste is sharp cheese rind, tight funk, lemon, some must, perhaps some soft oak, a touch of bitterness, and a very interesting lingering finish of sharp tart, light wheat, and a sharp prick of very dry sour that reminds me of brett although I doubt it is. Mouthfeel is sharp and precise and the lively carbonation is perfect. This is an amazing gueuze but it does not present with the rich fullness of balance both in aroma and taste of the Lente. Thank you again Armand.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle from bleeng.
Pours deep cheddar with a nose of cherry, must, blanket, and leather. Flavor is leather, Sprite, and a blanket sitting atop a horseblanket. Pop rocks to a nice stream on the tongue. Does THIS brewer make non-awesome beer???

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Huge thanks to storminorman. Bottle pours cloudy apricot with an eggshell head. Aroma is tart and funky with notes of horseblanket, leather, lemongrass, oak, apple, and light peach. Flavor shows much of the same, yet is toned down a little in the funk department. Overall body is moderate and the finish is dry/acidic. Amazing beer, yet lente is more my style.

Bottle thanks to mark99 on BA! Dark apricot pour, slight lasting head and a nice lemon sour aroma. Flavor is nice floral sour white grapes a light effervescence and a slight amount of mellow tartness on the finish. Solid beer, really happy I chased after this one!
