Light golden colour with fine white head that faded quickly. Acidic, lemony aroma. Flavour is also full of grapefruit. A refreshingly long, dry finish.

Light dull golden body with a head that hardly lasted. Lemon in the aroma. Lemon once again in the taste as well as apricot and grapefruit, sour and a little thin in a good way. Enjoyable!

On tap at Mahars. Overbearingly sour beer. Very pale in color with no head, taste of vinegar and apple skin.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2005 Bottle (375ml). At The Abbey, Ottawa. Poured slightly hazy oily gold witha very thin white head. Aroma - sour! Sour fruits (apricots) - a bit like sour champagne, tons of yeast. Taste - sour! also bitter - cleaned my teeth! - almost like aged pine resin and lemon juice. Palate very acidic , astringent - it grows on you, first taste is "whoa!", after a few sips you thin, you could get used to it ... Overall recommended - different but nice to taste a real lambic, hard to warm up to but I could definitely develop a taste for this.

bottle labeled as organic gueuze. sweet and acidic aroma, chalky and fruity and musty smell. holy crap thatís sour; like a liquid version of those candies "warheads" that dries up like rubbing alcohol. tingly and complex, and definitely a sipper.

2002 vintage. Large foamy white head atop a hazy gold color. Wet rotting vegetation, must, and horseblanket aroma. Bracing sourness that wraps around dusty cobwebs and barnyard flavors. Sourness lingers in the finish, with dried horse manure characters. Mouthfeel is medium light and dry.
