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. :)

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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Bottled in 2003, so says my cork. Marvelous, golden, peachy color, hazy as she comes, with no head to speak of...nose is sour, lemony, musty, a bit of vinegar and orange peel, and some spiciness...and stil a little dry...some complex stuff, so far! Oooo! Sourness grips the tastebuds, claws fast like an eagleís talons as it hits the tongue, bumps and climbs and cavorts all over the palate, one restless little brew we have here....it mellows some, plays gamely in the mouth afterwards and settles, sour has put down itís pistols and is laying it out lightly now...but, with each subsequent sipping, the dance begins again, a blitz of a ballet in the mouth, a whirl of a dervish... body is light, but flavor is huge, and the impact on the senses is enormous, with a softly sour lingering finish. A relentless masterpiece, this Bruocsella 1900 Grand Cru, a bold, yet benevolent fellow. My mouth wonít know quite what to do with itself when the bottle is gone.

SLightly sweet throughout. Somewhat soured. Not a favorite of mine but decent.
