larsga (7072) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2008
Medium offwhite head. Hazy orange body with vigourous carbonation. Wooden metallic barnyard aroma, feels tart. Harmonic. Intense bitter wooden metallic barnyard taste. Thin body. Sharp mouthfeel. Interesting and unusual. (0.355l bottle from Ole R.)

Maybe a bit of oxide in the aroma. Quite funky. I think all four of the adjectives on the bottle describing this beer are accurate. Tart, dry, sparkling and refreshing. Don’t know if I’ve ever agreed with a label completely before. You can add funky to it as well.

Travlr (19434) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 27, 2008
A traditional bottle-conditioned gueuze, spontaneously fermented, and a step above the regular Boon gueuze, which is most likely sweetened and not conditioned. Citrus flavors with moderate sourness and a dry, bitter finish. Ages well.

Betty (236) - Walgett, NSW, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2008
I agree with the Commercial DeScription: ’’’’sparking and refreshing¨. If I wasn´t sparked up enough, I had the pleasure to try this with Duff in some pub under London Bridge on southside the name of which is not so important right now. Tart and the bit of the blue cheeze that´s been sitting in the olive juice on the snack tray and all the Jatz are gone so I´ve gone and used my unwashed hands straight to the mouth despite the rags I may or may not be on right now. Beautiful geuze, beautiful company.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head. Sour apples, peaches, and soem vinegar in the aroma. Sharp, funky taste up front. Sweeter, peach taste towards the back with a mascarpone finish. Light, tart, but enjoyable.

BelgiskOlklub (1025) - Viby J, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2008
Bottle. Golden body, little/none white head. Aroma of wood, apple and vinegar. Watery texture. The flavor is bitter and acidic, but not as much as I like. I don’t like the bitter finish. It’s more bitter than sour, and I don’’t think, that the 8% alcohol brings some extra good to the beer.

TimE (4695) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 22, 2008
Drinking the 2004 version. Had this beer many times before, but this time finding more depth of honey, honey dew, horse blankets, hay, cherries, peache cobbler. There is an underlying malty sweetness to the beer that sits back to the upfront sourness. It is an approachable lambic for the uninitated, but not timid by any means. The sourness just lingers subtly at the end. Not over the top, but gentle with great complexity. How I want a lambic to be.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - OCT 21, 2008
HIgh carbonation. Pale yellow pour with a fizzy two finger off-white head. Dulled light fruit aroma with a funky zest. Watery funkiness in the taste along with some hay and lime with a hint of alcohol.

Svesse (7600) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2008
(Bottle, Akkurat, Stockholm, vintage 2003) Pale amber colour, hazy, with brief frothy white head. Acidic, fruity nose with overripe pears, horse blanket, stable and sweat. Fruity, tart taste with notes of citrus, tropical fruit and green apples. Balanced acidity, slightly vinous. Dry, medium to full body. Nice gueuze, with a rounded mouthfeel and slightly more alcohol than usual.

Lubiere (12241) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2008
Golden gueuze with a thick collapsing white head. Aroma of horseblanket, with nice ground cherries, and light epsom sallt, very pleasant. In mouth, a good lactic gueuze, with light cherries in mouth, but less acid than expected. Very nice. Bottle at Oud Arsenaal, Antwerp, Nov. 2006.
