madsberg (10140) - SÝborg, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2004
Bottled: Orange light hazy coloured. No head. Aroma is sour, woody, earthy and has some light fruitnotes. Flavour is very sour, almost citric. This is good stuff. Lots of earthy notes and in the end a sharpe grapefruit sourness.

caesar (4954) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2004
Slihgtly hazy light orange color, no head. Aroma of oak wood, tart lambic, grapes, wine. Taste is quite flat, pretty tart, though not as tart as some other Cantillon brews, slightly sweet. Sticky palate.

yeah... This beer is my number 1000! :) I finally made it. Letís quite rating and just drink the best top 50 beers... hehe... no way. Well about the beer. It sure is a unique brew. Bottle 2001. Aroma is very winey (red wine according to my girlfriend, Iím not really into wine..), grapes, citrus and some oak. Hazy, orange coloured with no head at all. Just a few large bubbles when I poured it into the glass. Taste is initially very smooth and winey-sweet. Not too dry. Tartness evolves from middle towards the finish. Quite sticky. Oak, mostly in finish/lingering taste. Some hints of vanilla in the beer. Could be lactic too. Very enjoyable lambic, but imo a little too sweet/sticky. I like the more dry lambics better. Offcourse this is a beer I never forget. :)

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Yellow color with no head at all. A decent lambic with a mild sour taste which is exactly what I was lookin for. Barnyard aromas all over this. Light carbonation makes this a great late night beer. Awesome.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Bottle pours still gold color with no head, but a lace ring that rides the surface and suspended particles. The aroma is acidic and perhaps some funk. The flavor is at first almost like thin malt, but then the sour hits the back and sides of the toungue. In addition, you can taste the hops along with the sour in the finish that produces an acidic sensation. The palate is still and almost wine like. Overall, not bad.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2004
Young bottle (2003). Lightly hazed golden liquid with a lid of a few big bubbles. Dandelion, ragweed, mild citrus, yogurt and light stewed raisins float about in the aroma. Smooth palate. Mellow flavors of light malt, touch of wood and hopsack, and a little must. No doubt this will be much better in 10 or 15 years.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Hazed golden orange appearance, no head formation or bubbles. Nose is acidic, becoming pungent and cheesey as it opens, mildly sweaty but not too menacing. Tart, sour fruit intro, unripened orange but a mild balance of sweet orange peel too. Mildly cheesey middle, strong acidity, grapefruit citrus and sourness in the finish. (Bottled in 2002).

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 9, 2004
Pours a cloudy golden hue with no head. Aromas of aples, flowers. Flavors of apples, pears, yeast with a bitter/sourness. I may have had an old bottle that wasnít stored well.

I bought the bottle without having read any comment about this beer, so I was really surprised of its absence of carbonation. Golden coloured, lemony in nose, sour in taste, very complex aroma.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Zero carbonation, no pop of the cork, nor did I get even the faintest whiff of a head. Oddly enough, it didnít impair the drinkability at all. Deep, slightly opaque gold. Nose sour and a bit bready. Flavor sour but not overpowingly so, good musty character, nice balance between overpowering gueuze and artificially sweetened lambics.
