M_Sack (352) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle. Hazy honey gold with cloud like white frothy head. Delicious aromas of lemon blossom, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, oak, some barnyard funk and wet hay. Incredibly complex flavours of sour lemon and lime juice, yeast, a salty/savoury element and oak aged apple cider. Rich, well carbonated mouth feel with immense tartness intertwined. Magnificent beer, which keeps beckoning another sip in a bid to grasp the full flavour profile.

BLADT (511) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2014
From tap. Sunny gold with smallish whit head. Nose is straight funk. Some gym sock. Oak barrel. Tart apples. Taste is crisp throughout. Bright body of cherries, some apricot. Vague wine qualities. Acidic. Well executed, but no the most interesting of their offering by a mile.

Bottle surprisingly at World of Beer in Tioga. $20 for a 375 ml was a bit much but oh well. Pours clear deep golden color with nearly no head at all into my champagne flute. Aroma of vinegar, apricots, mint leaves, sour fruits. Interesting aroma. Flavor follows closely with a surprisingly juicy fruit flavor, some sour lacto notes but not super acidic at all, sweet fruits like apricots, and very very light oak. The mouthfeel is fuller than most Geuezes I have encountered. Not dry at all like others and the oaky wood presence is extremely subdued here. Low to medium carbonation. While this was a bit different from others of the style, it was excellent with lots of juicy sour fruity flavor. Highly recommended!

How wonderful is this beer. I can immediately understand why people wouldn’t like this but this is a favorite. It changes with every sip as well, and under the sourness still retains many fruit flavors. Tap at In De Wildeman

Wine beer with a old cheese after taste. Acid taste at first. aroma is more cheesy and remains a good white wine. The sourness and the palate are the main difference of this beer.

Amazing gueuze lambic, very complex and full of different tastes, so enjoyable, very sour, grains, cereals, wild fruity and flowery notes. Amazing!

bruxellover (16) - Dilbeek, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2014
Orange light bubbles sour grapes and sour apple. No sweetness whatsoever, which is good for this style. Slight earthy leather added to the complexity.

Birthday bottle at Churchkey. Hazy yellow-gold with a thin white cap. Aroma is tart and funky with some wet hay, apple skin, and a touch of citrus. Taste is sour apple and grapes, funky earthiness, and sugar and citrus sweetness on the swallow. Light body, thin slightly creamy texture, active carbonation, acidic dry finish. Interesting first foray into the champagne of Brussels.
