UPDATED: OCT 8, 2008 Bottle shared by iowaherkeye, not pepsican. Poured a hazy golden-yellow color. Attractive aroma of funky white wine vinegar and lemon. Light bodied with mild acidity that peaked at the end. Tasted of tart apple, lemon, lime, and vinegary leather sandal. I never thought footy sandal could be such a pleasant flavor until I tried this beer.

Bottle. It was my birthday today, and I had this while eating oysters at an oyster farm north of san fran; it was a really nice experience. Cloudy yellow-orange pour with some white head. Aroma is lemony tartness with a little bit of funk. Very citrusy. Flavor is the same, reminds of RR beatification, but not quite as good. Small amount of sweetness in the finish. It’s a good beer on a warm day. I also put a little bit of it on an oyster that I cooked; it was pretty tasty eating.

Capped and corked 750. Pours hazy gold with a thick but falling head. Aroma of lemon, fruit, grass. Light body and moderate carbonation. Lemony taste of orange rinds, cork, barnyard, oak. Sour dry finish. I’m left with the taste impression of chewing on a cork that has been marinating in lemonade for a rather long time.

Cloudy pale golden, moderate head, really nice lacing and retention. Aroma is very funky with strong notes of cheese, also has barnyard action, lemons, a bit of basement. Medium bodied, moderate tartness, quite drinkable with a light sweetness. Nice Gueuze except for the price.

750ml bottle. Dull golden body with a nice, dense white head. Aroma has a pleasant, sourish, musty cellar note. Flavor is acidulous, fruitiness in the direction of oranges with a bitter twist in the finish. This is a pleasant, well balanced, relatively kind, but still true to the style Lambic.
