UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Draft at the Blind Tiger. Aroma kind of like a farmhouse/saison ale, but more earthy and funky. The flavor is sour and medicinal, and lemony. Not my favorite style.

Pours a hazey straw color with light, suspended carbonation. It smells funky and tart. The assertive flavor has sour citrus fruit and some of that lambic funk. The finish is dry and kind of refreshing.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Capped and corked bottle and bottled in 2003. Small white head that mostly diminished with no lacing, visible carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. Nose was acidic, sour, tart, fruity, funky, and grassy hops. Flavor was acidic, lightly bitter, sour, tart, fruity, and a dry finish. Mouthfeel was tingly, sour and dry. Light body.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow/orange, thin white head. Aroma of some tart fruits, lemon mostly, some funkiness too. Taste is tart and sour, more lemons come to mind. Lots of sourness. I enjoyed this.

smartlung (159) - Valrico, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2007
bottle from World of Beer - I must say I enjoyed the Lindemans Bio much better - still not up with the sour tastes just yet - aroma of citrus, lemon, and a little funk, I think Manneken Pis did exactly that in this beer - just not my favorite

JohnnyJ (4807) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Pour is hazy yellow/orange. Aroma of funk, lemon, and a little bit of spice. Flavors of barnyard funk, citrus, light fruit, hay, and sourness. Quite good, even though Im not used to lambics yet.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2007 12.7oz bottle, not sure of vintage but it reads "Classic Gueuze" in red letters with yellow label and sillouette of cantillon logo (guy falling backwards on chair). pours hazy straw with great looking head. aroma is really impressive with barnyard funk, musty, and lemon. flavor is initially tangy, pretty tart and sour, then gets musty and sorta sweet, finishes sour and dry. i could have 12oz of this every day.

homogenous orange opaque appearance. aroma is pure farmhouse. sourness. this is basically exactly what its supposed to be. i think itd be great and refreshing as a summer standard, but the novelty isnt worth the premium price. really simple as beers go.

Bottle, thanks Sersdf. Cloudy honey colored pour with a thin white head. Yeasty, spicy, bready aroma with citrus-pith like notes. Flavor is pretty much all sour and bitterness. Tastes like under-ripe grapefruit with a little less tartness. Really, really interesting. Subtle complexity. Fresh on the palate. I dont know anything, really, about the style or the brewery, but Im intrigued. This is definitely a style Im interested in exploring more.

Fukito (891) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 13, 2007
Bottle - January 2007 - Thanks Omhper! Shinny hazy orange with a dissapearing white head and champagne like effervescence. Aroma is salty, mineral, cidery, fruity, green apples, spicy, rotten oranges, penetrating!. Acid taste, very tart, some vinegar, salty finish. Intriguing and refreshing. I appreciate it and can see what this means to be, but Im not ready or it is not my cup of tea. Ends with a lemony feeling. Aftertaste is dry, acid but not offending. Refreshing and sparky. Difficult, but I think Im getting started on this sour things xD.
