(2008) Yellow color. Very lively--like champagne. Intense Brett (barnyard) & fruit aroma. Tastes of brett, almost more like a wine than beer. Tart & refreshing--hints of lemon, peach, maybe slight bubblegum. Alcohol about 8%, but not really noticeable due to so many other flavors going on. Yeasty dregs at bottom of bottle. If you haven’t tried it, it’s worth seeking out to find out what lambic is all about.

joeiznogood (14) - DENMARK - JUN 4, 2016
At home, 2012 37.5cl bottle. Pour: medium head, very fast dissipation, golden light yellow, semi-clear not dusty, very flat, low carbonation. Smell: malty, sweet, sour, old basement Initial taste: well rounded, sweet, barnyard, malt, sour, dusty After breathing - First: sour, fresh; mids: sour, slight metallic bitterness; after: barnyard, malt. Verdict: Overall very well rounded and almost champagney in flavour! Will definitely be having this one again, although the sourness is a shortlived one.

wedgie9 (2585) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2016
2010 Vintage
Tasted on 6/2/16 from a 375mL corked and caged bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours clear bronze orange with a massive white head that slowly recedes to thick, rocky lace. The nose is tremendously complex with tons of burnt rubber, orange oil, an almost rye-like fruit and spice, the very faintest hint of cedar cigar box, and just a bit of some lightly oxidized malt starting to poke through. The flavor is a bit softer than expected with some of the oxidized sweetness of the malt coming through a bit more with some tart orange and lemon zest, along with plenty of funky, earthy, burnt rubber, but very soft and all very nicely integrated. The body is medium with some tannic texture, just under average carbonation, and a long, funky, earthy, and lightly sweet orange oil finish.

mgajdaczewa (1522) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 1, 2016
W aromacie dzikość, ziemistość, słodycz białych winogron, kompleksowo. W smaku wytrawnie, wyraźna kwaśność, dzikość, pestkowość, nieco kurzu, pije się bardzo lekko, w żadnej mierze nie czuć, że to tak mocne piwo. Da się lepiej, bardziej soczyście, ale to też jest świetne!

Lele (368) - Padova, ITALY - MAY 31, 2016
VINTAGE 2011 - ASPETTO: biondo oro, con schiuma bianca, fine, abbondante e decisamente persistente (ne rimane sempre mezzo centimetro. AROMA: citrica, fruttata, classica puzza da lambic, speziata e un po’ erbacea. GUSTO: in bocca è un capolavoro. L’acidità si sente, ma non è tagliente. Chiare note citriche, accompagnata ad un fruttato e ad un vinoso eccezionali. Lo speziato, il tocco di "fogna" e il leggero, ma avvertibile amaro, chiudono una bevuta soddisfacente. Fino ad ora la migliore Geuze che ho assaggiato, un capolavoro!
