4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap. Very enjoyable, reminscent of the Petrus Aged Ale with the vinous dry oak and strong tartness. Light gold, small, appetising head in a thin tulip glass. Musty, slightly citrusy and malty in the nose, mouth-filling sour tartness up front, earthy, almost bubblegum sweetness on the sides of the tongue. Hard pear and apple. Long finish. One of those beers that has flavors developing for many seconds after the sip. You may need more than one of these as it gets better and better as you adjust to the strong flavors.

Very "unbeer" like. Very light golden straw like color. Very tart flavor - unsweetened fruit. Very wine-like. One of the best Gueuzes I've had on tap (Monk's in Philly).

What the hell have I come too when I smell horse blanket, horses, and Horse poo in my beer and smile? How come I enjoy the face pucking tartness and the taste of circus peanuts in the finish, this is a beer right? I mean it is yellow/gold and it dose have a head, I certainly looks like a beer. Why does it taste like a riesling with only with more grapeskins? WTF is this? Cream? Lemon grass? VITINIM C PILLS?!? I give up, Im out like the fat kid in dodgeball. Just leave me alone....

Picked this one up after the Chicago real ale festival, fuckin great time! Anyway, a good gueuze. It was tart with a slight winey taste, lots of foam with the pour.

Yet another brew enjoyed at obrien's. A light orange color with hints of yellow. A great mixture of fruit flavors. Not sour, but tart. A good lambic which i am much appreciative of having the pleasure to sample.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another one of the many great beers i was privileged to sample from Tom Nickel's personal collection at Obriens last night. This one poured a mighty cloudy orangey/peach color with a very minimal orangey head. The aroms was entrancingly lovely with orange, peach, lemon, and yeastiness becoming apparent. The taste offered an acidic battle of the tongue and cheek. Flavors of lemon and peach dominate with acidic citrus creating a beautiful souring finish. A bit rougher in the finish than the Oud Beersel tried earlier, but still this was a very respectible brew. Oak flavors also begin to come out as this one warms. Very carbonated and extremely tart...nicely done indeed.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled 1999. Slightly hazy golden color with bubbles that explodes in the glass to a tall fluffy near white head that despeckles the glass is in disipates. The CO2 left in the glass burned the nose as I went to smell the aroma. True sweet sour aroma which only gets better as it warms. Champagne qualities. The more I drink the more I like this. Mild farm yeast start followed by fruity citirc flavors that are quite intense. Light maltiness that emerges and than get taken back by the sourness. Rather sticky in the finish, but still clean and crisp in the finish.

Going mostly off memory here, but I distinctly remember not liking as much as Lindemans Gueuze.
