ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - MAY 30, 2008
2005 bottle. Pours a light amber with a thin skin of a head, very little lacing. Nose is totally out of control: vinous, musty, vinegary, musty, and with notes of sour fruits. Medium bodied and initally puckering, the beer settles into a leathery passionfruit character, before finishing oaken and herbal in a crisp, moreish finish. Ancient hop grassiness clings to the palate in the aftertaste. Either you love it or hate it, but this is one of the wildest of the style.

HopRedHead (393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle at the Cantillon Brewery. Pours orange brown. Aroma has a lot of lemon peel, wood, damp hay, white grapes and acidic bacterial yeast notes. Taste was really refreshing, lots of sharp acidic zest notes, white grapes, champagne and hay. Upfront but not offensive carbonation, backed by a refreshing bitterness. The type of beer you dream about on a hot summers day!

750ml Bottle. Appearance is clear orange color with lots of fizzy, off-white head. Aroma is sour, barnyard, and fruit. Taste is similar with lots of lactic funk, balance with apple, and lemon fruitiness. Palate is medium-bodied, smooth texture, quite acidic, fizzy carbonation, and a dry finish.

375mL bottle, 04-05/05-06/06-07, lot 02/08, bottled 08/08. Pours a clear gold with a persistent fine creamy ring. Strong and complex aroma - vinous, fruity, and ripe in particular. Sharp and heavy tartness all the way through with a little bit of antiseptic, cheese, sweat and a slight bitterness. Light bodied and quite smooth.

VDuquerroux (389) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAR 21, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Bottle, 75cL. Naintré, France. With dad, mom, TC and TZ. A pale yellow brown beer with a medium white head. Poor persistence. When I took the top off the bottle, I discovered beer on the cork. Worrying ?!? No :) Good aroma : wood (intense), cider (apple), smoked, lactic acid. Heavy dry sour sharp notes every sip of beer. Light bitter. Medium to light body, thin texture. Average carbonation. Lasting dry sour finish. Overall, delicious : dry sourness with still fruity character and aroma of oak barrel. 3/21/2014 : 8-3-7-3-16 (bottle, 37.5cL)

lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2003
Aroma: strong aroma of roses and mint. Appearance: cloudy, hisbiscus yellow Flavor: ouch! afraid to swallow because so sour! similar to drinking the pickle juice at the bottom of the jar. besides being sour though, has a strong floral flavor and tastes slightly of fresh mint. a very crisp, fresh taste. Palate: tingles the front of the tongue, sour in the back, and during/after swallowing major sour burst! wow! *great bar bet: eat a piece of feta cheese, olive, and lettuce leaf soaked in balsamic vinegar, then drink this beer and bet that you won't make the sour face and wanna cry...hehe* but really, this is quite a good gueuze.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Golden pour with a small white head that sticks around the edges. Clean, acidic aroma. Sour apple, apricot maybe? The flavor so acidic that the exact nature of the fruit flavors is hard to discern, but it tastes good regardless. Pretty mild actually, not terribly bitter. Possibly some white grape as well. Good beer,
