Huhzubendah (2525) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Shared by Thorpe429 alongside several other Allagash sour/wild ales. Thank you very much, Mike! The beer appears light golden colored with a thin, wispy head that leaves faint traces of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings some nice funk, along with earth, grass, hay, straw, outdoors, mineral water. Smells very enticing - nicely done. The flavor is clean and refreshing, with a subtle and elegant lactic presence followed by a mildly acetic finish. Not on par with the elite gueuzes from Belgium, but a very nice beer, and undoubtedly one of the better attempts from an American brewery. Light bodied and easy drinking. Overall, this was solid and enjoyable. I would have this again.

Bottle with dad- pours clear golden, lots of carbonation but little to no head. Nose of wet blanket, lemon, pear, oak. Loads of drying tartness, sour, farmyard funk, white grape , vinous. Damn good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ansalon (1384) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2014
Pours hazy peach with a low white head. Aromas of yeasty rye bread, citrus, funk, honey. Taste is funk, citrus, honey, kiwi. Mouthfeel is very dry and tart. Stellar stuff.

tectactoe (1871) - Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle: Muddled, unfiltered burnt orange-amber body with a slightly off-white head that fizzles away quickly into just a small collar. Wonderfully gueuze-like aroma. Lemon skin, sour stone fruits, lacto yeast, acetic underripe apricots, musty cork, funky cheese rind; huge amount of sweaty sock & barnyard funk in the back-end. Ripping sourness up front; lemon wedges, stone fruit, puckering lactic notes with citric undertones. Lovely lactobacillus sourness. Old corks, musty barnyard floors, & sweaty horseblanket thanks to the overload of brettanomyces. Pineapple, sour green apple, acidic; finishes with a pile of lightly tannic soured oak, sharp & dry as can be. Holy nutsack. Insanely delicious, maybe the best (& most authentic tasting) American attempt at a gueuze that I can recall. Dat FUNK.

Marheb (2049) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
(4/3/2014): Faudrait les avoir côte à côte mais j’ai l’impression d’être en présence d’une gueuze 3F avec une présence d’abricot mûr plus fraiche sur la langue...sinon le reste des paramètre me laisse croire que la flore bactérienne du Maine et des Flandres n’est pas si différente finalement.

poech73 (191) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2014
Sample @ Quitessence 2014.
A côté de Cantillon, celle-là fait pâle figure. Presque pas de nez: légère acidité maltée peu amère avec relents de levure. Le corps malté manque de robustesse: légèrement acide petite rondeur developpant des arôme d’argile, de grain acidulé. La fin est surette. Bière douce et fluette sans puissance.

VsXsV (2271) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle at Grote Dorst. Light hazy golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of apples, pears, funk, barnyard and mineral. Taste is dry and medium sour with notes of apple skin, lemon and funk. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. OK geuze but not elegant.

chinchill (1873) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Shared bottle. Hazy amber. Aroma: Mild funkiness for style. Less off-putting than usual. Flavor: Fruity and complex taste starts sweet and sour but turns tart and bitter by the finish. Quite tart mid-taste. Very good and relatively low salt for style.

douglas88 (6020) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden/yellow color with a medium white head. A bi sour funky nose, oak. The favor is wonderful: tart aggressive sourness, a bit of barnyard funk, oaky tanins, dry, very fruity as well. Just an awesome sour.
