2008-03-01. Amber body with a small white head that does not last. Medium aroma, musty-funky barnyard. Flavour has moderate sourness throughout, light ambiguous sour fruit, light grainy hay notes. Average to thin palate. Nice, moderately sour lambic, but there is not enough depth to keep my attention.
Bottle at Zythos Festival, St. Niklaas

Clear yellow pour with okay thin head. Sweet tart fruit smell. Sweet vinegar flavor. Easy to drink but weak and overly acidic. Just not a very good Gueuze.

375 ml bottle. Pours golden orange with a nice white head. The fragrance is somewhat woody with sulphur notes. Predominant taste for me is very tangy and a bit sour. Overall, enjoyable but not my style.

ZBF2008: From bottle. Pours golden orange/light brown, clear, and with a crispy and quickly disappearing white head. Acidic, light apple aroma. Flavour is dry, yet quite smooth. Light woody and a mild sulphorish note. Ends dry.

Poured pale, cloudy yellow, with a fomay white head. Armoa is sour, wet wool. Flavor is lemon zest, yeast and wood. Finish is dry and refreshing, bitter aftertaste, with a hint of alcohol. Slightly fizzy mouthfeel.

listed as marrage parfait lambic, this is the only boon that matches the color so i guess this is it :) very funky aroma, I drank two glasses of this trying to figure out the taste and if I liked it or not (guess I did). Sour/tartness was very mild and dry, but I couldnt pinpoint many outstanding flavors

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2008 Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden color with some thin white head. Acidic and tart aroma, funk component is secondary. Some mild sweetness comes through after warming a bit. Nice palate - effervescent but not overboard. Taste is slightly funky and dry. The tartness is pretty mild considering the aroma. Some peppery notes in there also. Almost tastes bland compared to other gueuzes, but after sipping it gains some character due to its drinkability.

Pale yellowish, watery honey like pour with a small offwhite head. Smell is fruity and funky. Sharp bubbly mouthfeel that is a bit too carbonated actually. Taste is tart, acidic, and bland with no sweetness. Nothing appealing to me. Couldn’t finish my sample size.

AmEricanbrew (6463) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 26, 2008
medium amber color with a slight head. Great gueze smell is tart, musty, hay, wood, apples, barnyard, all the good stuff. A fairly dry taste is a complex mesh of apples, cellar, hay, leather, wood, horseblanket barnyard etc. Light and zesty mouthfeel. Another fantastic gueze. 5107

12.7 oz bottle. Pours clear golden color with a huge rocky, foamy white head. Aroma is evident from several feet away. White wine, green apple skins, a touch of pepper, cidery, slight funk though kept in check compared to other gueuzes - not as much horse blanket or barnyard character in this one. Apples are the standout aroma. Taste is very subdued for the style. Peppery esters start out on the tongue, though subtly then move on to a sweet apple flavor. Acidity is low, tartness nowhere to be found. Certainly the least sour traditional lambic I’ve had. Finishes dry. A disappointment.
