Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Upon it disembarking the 750ml green bottle resides in the glass a beclouded straw color with a smallish off white head and the resultant lace a thin but sealing sheet. Nose is tart, with hints of sour apples, citrus like in its crispness; start is dry and sour with the top light. Finish continues the devastatingly tartness, dry as a bleached desert bone, and the aftertaste lingers long, a true lambic loverís brew that you will love or hate, I love it, but beware its not meant for everyone even if you like most lambics.

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2004
On tap at the Blind Tiger In NYC. Hazy, golden/orange color with almost no head. Tart, yeasty aroma of grapefruit, and sour apples. Flavor also sour, but not overly so. Hints of grapefruit and other citrus fruits along with a strange, but not unpleasant, copper taste. Finishes beautifully with a crisp, clean aftertaste. I wish I could get more of these beers.

fly (1417) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - OCT 18, 2004
From draft engine @ Moan & Dove. While in many respects so much was muted, what came through was a symphony and everything that I was hoping for at the moment. A real delight. Subtle, only ever so slightly sour, mildly mouth coating. Rich, but light and all too easy to drink, but at 5% I guess thatís believable.

Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - OCT 17, 2004
Tutored tasting with Italian beer expert Lorenzo "Kuaska" Dabove. Hazy golden colour, wine appearance. Nose of vinegar, lemon, metallic, blood, pork meat, wet wood, "old poker cards" (Kuaska copyright) Taste gives an initial very light sweetness, metallic, tannines. Dry palate, the lambic sourness is not invading.

badgerben (4404) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Hazy gold color with a thick head. Sour aroma, but not an overpowering one; kind of like grapefruit. Ludicrously good sour taste with a mild wheat and wood presence. It has the odd ability to feel smooth, yet be insanely carbonated. Quite a treat.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2004 Flat entry. I simply didnít expect this, nor did I care, if this lambic had a head or not. Nice, light orange color. Dry, deep woody notes in the nose with notes of grapefruit, lemon, white grapes, green apple, leather and flei infested horse hair. Much more approchable than I was expecting. Flavor begins with deep wine-like tannins and damp wood. Next comes the superbly woven fruit notes, mainly grapefruit, green apple and orange. The finish is dry, metallic and very acidic. More lingering and sour deep wet wood notes linger on. This lambic is everything and more of what it is trying to be. The gods blessed this barrel well. Phenomenal.
