Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Juicy yelolow pour, quite hazy with fluffy white head, some bigger soda bubbles cling to the glass. Aroma is tart lemons and apples, vinegar, mild wood and leather, a good touch of cheesy funk to round it all out. Very tart (jaw clinched a bit) with the notes from the nose carrying through to the tongue. Woodyness a little more pronounced, very slight bandaid flavor. Finishes like a tart pear at first then quickly switches towards a woody drying mouth feel... still leaving the hint of juicy sourness behind, which definately makes me want to keep sipping this.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAY 8, 2008
12 oz bottle. Poured orange with a thin white head. Fruity, hints of vanilla past the yeasty odor. Flavor is sour, tart, fermented apples and woody. Very dry and felt a bit thin. I have only had a few beers of this style, so it is hard for me to give it a fair rating. Definitely not my favorite style, but still interesting.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Draft - Brasserie Beck (DC). Hazed orange, fizzy white head. Sour funked cheese and grape aromas roll over hints of citrus and oaken must. Acidic lemony sour wood flavors gain notes of soft funky earth. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, sour finish. A rockin gueuze.....

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - MAY 8, 2008
Rosy peachy creamy golden colour...quite a nice mellow shade. Smell is of slight apricot and grass. Taste is clover, smashed apples, cider, slight tinge of oak and earth. Smooth, bitter, fizzy sourness at the tail end. A comforting beer on a spring night.

mjs (6459) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2008
(Bottle at Hilpeä Hauki on 2008-02-15) Golden colour. Very tiny head. Very sour nose with some acidity. Sour and at the same time fruity taste. Sourness is like stomach acids. Some even vomit-like flavours.

Pours cloudy orange yellow. Sour, fruity, funky aroma. Taste is very tart and sweet, with a lot of noticeable funk and earthy flavores. Has almost no carbonation. Finish is extremely tart and sour. Tastes like Spring.

BeerEssential (96) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 26, 2008
Cantillon Classic Gueuze, the one with the black silhouette on the yellow label. Slightly cloudy yellow, started off very carbonated but head settled down to almost zero. Scent is sour and woody. I’ve never had this style of beer, so I find it very sour...but that’s how it’s meant to be. Almost not beer-like at all, but like sour wine. Interesting, but difficult to rate without gaining more experience of the style.

Golden in color and hazy with a thin lacy head. Smell is sweet, sour, acidic, and funky. Taste is sweet, sour, and has a great bite to it. Thin and dry with low carbonation.

Pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma was apple, funk, and sour fruits. Flavor has a good shot of lambics funk, some leather and tobacco, a bit of woody earth. Finished pretty sour, refreshing.
