thebeertourist (4859) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2005
Light golden colour with fine white head that faded quickly. Acidic, lemony aroma. Flavour is also full of grapefruit. A refreshingly long, dry finish.

bluevegie (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2005
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.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
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.

jtw (1101) - farmington, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2005
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.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Pours with an orange-gold body topped by a thin head with little lacing. Itís sour and tart with a nice barnyard note and a touch of lemon. Light bodied, crisp and dry.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2005
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.
