(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.

0,375L, 2010 vintage, shared by FatPhil, thanks! Pours golden with off-white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is fruity, tart, acidic. Flavor is sour, fruits, yeast. Overall: nice, but not as good as one I remember having before. Probably should try another bottle.

HenriqueBraga (106) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 18, 2015
Cerveja amarelo dourada-âmbar, boa espuma, turva. Aroma com notas acéticas e animalescas que são igualmente evidentes na boca. Final adstringente, refrescante.

AbouAli (151) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 13, 2015
nez assez acide avec un côté pipi de chat, couleur ambrée claire avec une mousse qui reste longtemps, incroyable rondeur en bouche, un côté bien soyeux, pas du tout harsh pour le style. Acidité somme toute relativement faible. Manque de complexité... Une très bonne gueuze sous évaluée parce qu’elle vient de boon et pas de cantillon ou 3 fonteinen... dommage !

Bottle. 2010 vintage. Radiant orange with a thin white head. Aroma is skunked unfortunately. Taste is nice and lactic with doughy notes and tangy citrus. Very bright. Medium spritzy mouthfeel. Wish I had a bottle of this that wasn’t in green glass. Thankfully only the aroma suffered for it.

Kauge (410) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 9, 2015
375 ml bottle from Wine of Galilee in Tallinn (€ 4.80). 2010 Vintage. BB 2033. Slightly hazy golden colour; head is white and with very good retention plus some lacing. Damn acidic! Barnyard, horse stable, apples on the nose, with drips of lime juice. Taste is equally, or even more acidic, slightly woody. Strong carbonation. Sticky in the mouth, hay dryness in the finish. Should’ve shared it with someone.

ej (821) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle 2010. Pours a clear, pale golden, looking abit deeper golden / orange in the glass. A medium sized frothy head is produced, but dissipates fast leaving a white film and some small lacings. Nice acidic aroma with hints of stables, apples, hay and balsamic-vinegar. Subtle notes of pale malts as well. Taste is moderately tart and wonderfully rounded. Hints of apples and some light citric notes aswell. Dry and highly drinkable. A slight warmth in the aftertaste. lively carbonation, medium body,.

(sample from a bottle) Orange, hazy untransparent colour. Small, yellowish, slowly falling head. Aroma: Dry, noble rot like in Tokay Asu, fruits, light character of brettanomyces, basement, soft notes of wood. Taste: High tartness, medium sourness, basement. Pleasant, sour increasing finish.

obe83 (75) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 1, 2015
del 2010 bevuta come prima birra del 2015 (e tecnicamente quindi con 5 anni di maturazione) di un giallo oro con schiuma frizzante ma persitente si presenta con odor di prugna acerba limone e erba bagnata. off flavour importanti di sudore e cavallo che ne contraddistonguono lo stile. in bocca parte citrica, con sentori di uva fragola una nota etilica e finale di una astringenza spiccata che lascia una piacevole amaricatura citrica molto peristente a fine beva. corpo di una bella struttura aiutata senz altro dai 8 abv e carbonazione abbondante che ne facilitano la bevibilitá che resta off limits per i non amanti del genere.

Atom (1488) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2014
2010 750mL pours a mostly hazy orange/golden with a large off-white head. Aroma of orange citrus, oak, Brett, tart sugar. Taste is tart with Brett, lemon, barnyard funk, oak, dry and drinkable. I’ve had the 2009 many times but enjoyed this one more.
