mabel (7385) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2008
[1156-20080301] Bottle. Boozy grainy petrol yeast aroma with a bit of bread. Clear, medium orange brown body with quick white bubbles. Boozy astringent yeast flavour has petrol characteristics. Medium body is sour. Interesting to try and well-blended, good example of a par+ geuze.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Bottle. A lusciously lemony-tart gueuze with a playful zing of sweet sourness that really puts it over the top. Sparkling carbonation really helps to carry that zing along. Truly splendid.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a large white head that fades leaving some lacing. Aroma of tart lemons, green apple, and some yeasty brett goodness. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness, moderate acidity, and very well hidden alcohol.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 19, 2008
The pour was an ever so slightly cloudy, light copper color. A substantial white head formed then gave way to some flecks of lacing. Lots of effervescent bubbles. The aroma was light funk, sour fruit and even some light malt? The flavor followed suit. The mouthfeel was clean and dry and I found it mildly refreshing. To be honest, I’d just as soon have a Mike’s Hard Lemonade if I feel the need for something sour, bubbly and alcoholic.

LilBeerDoctor (3527) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Bottle. Poured a cloudy light orange with a slight white head. Aroma of sour barnyard funk. Flavor of sour fruits, typicaly gueuze flavor. Not too sour (a plus for me) and very enjoyable to drink. Kind of zesty too! I was pleasantly surprised by this beer, as most lambics are often too sour for my liking. Excellent.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Golden color with a white head. Aroma is citrusy, sour, and pleasantly funky. Flavor has a nice woody-sour-funky mix that is good with almost any food. Classic gueuze.

cheap (4571) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 My mouth starting watering the moment I opened the box when I got this from puzzl in a trade. Beautiful pour, cloudy beige with very little yellow. Sour appetizing aroma. Very nice tingly palate. Delicious sour initial flavors overwehlm the taste buds. Enjoyable and refreshing as with most real lambics. Wow what an experience! Has much more alky in it than I am familiar with most lambics, 8%. However it hides the alky content well. The only thing I didn’t care for in this brew was the apparent bitter lingering aftertaste, which by the way, was not really that bad, just noticeable. Overall I want to say this beer rocks and I owe puzzl big for this selection. Lovely, reminds me a bit of cantillon iris.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Cask. Pours a light amber copper body with no head. Aroma is sour fruit, orange, lemon, acrid tart fruit. Mouth is very dry and palate cleansing. A touch of pepper and yeast, but mostly sour tart fruit. good.

Tranquillity (1453) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2008
Bottled. Oh what a shame! It’s a fantastic beer but wrong for my taste: I can’t stand grapefruit. Clear orange-red, tiny white head. Very geuzy aroma.
