turbothy (1078) - Bonn, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2007 Pours a cloudy dark amber with huge beige head that dies down a bit with nice lacing. Aroma is musty with a hint of pear. The flavour is less sharp than expected, although "round" would be stretching it. Tastes of cider, yeast, muck and buttermilk (which is better than it sounds). Easy-drinking for a geuze, but a bit fizzy. Might’ve been too cold.

Very spritzy with a sour tart lemonade kind of flavor. Strong but not overbearing vinegar component. Finish is dry and champagne like. Just alright by me.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2005
Pours a murky, fleshy, peach hue and has a large, hot milk froth, white head that is sadly short lived. Strong lemon & orange zest, leather, hay, whole grain bread, barnyard, horseblanket, earth, gruyere cheese, hard boiled eggs, relish, honey, biscuits, vinegar and wood aromas. It’s interesting and diverse, but it just doesn’t "pop". Strong, tart, lemonade flavor up front. Spicy with hay and earthy flavors also. Finish bring the all of the good funk and some dried cherry pits. Thaaat’s more like it. Medium-full body with a slick, yet creamy, texture and fizzy carbonation.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2005
Couleur dorée foncée, apparence semi-claire laissant paraître de fins dépôts au fond du liquide. Mousse blanche et très persistante adhérant en partie à la paroi du verre. Vieux bois humide et jus de pomme acide, quelques notes métalliques. Acide lactique, sulfure et pommes vertes en bouches. Finale très sèche et tartrique, carbonatation active mais discrète. Bouteille, Délirium Café, voyage Europe 2005.

the kitty (coconut pete) smelled this beer and backed away and started twitching. hahaha. aroma had some fun fun things in it: string cheese, shellfish, uncooked salmon, tin can. very cloudy orange-yellow color. funky cheese aroma too... tasted like some lemon, swiss cheese, bleu cheese, lime, sawdust, seafoam, mussels, cat funk.

Shag (2585) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Ah another funkdified gueuze. A vinegar, oyster, and cheese aroma. The appearance was an amber color with a moderate head. A very funky barnyard flavor with a heavy dose of sourness present. A taste of lemon juice, champagne, vinegar, and tart apples. The aftertaste is very acidic and dry. Overall it was good.

21iceman40 (1731) - vienna, West Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2005
A light dull copper color with a solid white head. Vinegar and sour metallic metal. the sour isnt too overpowering in the taste, i actually get the feeling that im eating the rind of a lemon or orange. I also get a weird sour veggie feel. Odd beer, i dig it, but not alot.

TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2005
Bottled 37,5cl vintage 2001-2002 @Kulminator
Amber, yellow color, cloudy white head. Sour vinegar, earthy nose. Ageing has cut the sour edge of this: liquerish - pear and grape flavors plus some flavor of rubber (!). Grassy, fruity, berry-flavors linger in mouth in the aftertaste plus gueuze sourness. Absolutely fabolous beer.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2005
vinegary aroma, amber color, with a nice ’puckery’ (very tart) dry flavor. insubstantial palate. not an off-putting brew, but not my favorite style.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2005
This beer has a amber body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had no carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is acid.
