75 cL bottle (sample), 1999 vintage. Pours orange. Aroma and taste is citric and vinegar. Extreme sour into the finish. But it’s great, really great

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2004
[Vintage 1999 at Grote Dorst 2004] The aroma is sweet and sour with notes of oranges. The color is a hazy orange and it has a small head. The flavor sour with notes of the wild fermentation, oranges, and dry wood.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Vintage 1993. Golden and very unclear - almost impure. Extreme sediment inside. Very vinegary but without the subtle and sophisticated flavours found in the best, traditional gueuzes. 150602

joergen (20576) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2007
1999 bottle. Hazy orange coloured with a small white head. Acidic roa of barnyard, wood and fruits. Acidic flavour of barnyard, wood and fruits. Very one dimensional acidic, and almost no complexity, I had expected much more.

oh6gdx (20252) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2006
Bottled (Thanks Jacob, 1999 vintage, rating #1800). Hazy pale nutbrown colour, minor head. Sour apricotty aroma, with some earthy hints. Flavour is sour fruity, almost like a white wine. Extremely dry lambic, but still refreshingly full of fruits and sourness. Just lovely. Good way of celebrating 1800 ratings.

omhper (19233) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Bottled. Cloudy orange. Aroma of barnyard and lemon juice. Very acidic with clean, rounded mouthfeel. There’s sweet malt beneath the powerful acidity. Very flavourful, but not as complex and lively in mouthfeel as the best gueuzes I’ve had.

anders37 (16460) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2006
1992 Vintage. Rating #400. Hazy golden colour with a small head. Mellow acidic barnyard aroma with some hints of citrus. Nice sour flavor with some citrus hints. Dry tart and lovely aftertaste.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2005
Muddy blond color, poor head. Excellent Lambic. Should I say more? There is some apple fruitness in the taste; astringent. One straight, pure, lovely Lambic.
