Bott;ed 2003. Cork came out on it's own, probably would have blown across the room if I hadn't held it. Poured very lively like champagne with a yellow cloudy body. Aromas of yeasts, cobwebs, dank musty basement and a somewhat medicinal smell. Flavour that of carbonated consentrated lemon juice. Was the sample too young ? Or am I not worthy?

I had ordered this thinking to get some mussels in Brussels, but the restaurant was out. I ended up getting the North Sea shrimp, which looked like a plate full of mealworms but tasted much better. The gueuze was still a good match. The acidity cut through the creamy sauce that accompanied the decapods. I began to wonder if there wasn’t anything that a good gueuze didn’t go with.

Drank with the family in the brewery while watching the World Cup. Fabulous, you can almost taste the history and funkiness of the brewery while you drink the beer. As they told us, ’Beer is meant to be acid, it should not be sweet!’ The flavors of this one are a great mix of sourness and acidiy without being overpowering. I really enjoyed this lambic.

Bottle. Slightly hazy orange colour with a smal white foam. Aroma is big on sourness with lots of vinegar, sour grapes, sour raspberry, barnyard, cherry, basement and yeast. Taste is only moderately sour and quite fresh. Also lots of vinegar and sour grapes. Very pleasant and yet adequately complex.

Ogni volta che la si beve sicuramente non si fa dimenticare tanto facilmente. Aroma classico del genere, spinto tra l’acetico e il sudore di un qualche animale indefinito. Al palato è tanto acida che risucchi le labbra fin dentro lo stomaco. Comunque è caratterizzata da una media carbonazione, con tocchi di legno, aceto e un tocco di frutta acerba. Berla è un esperienza che non si dimentica.

cagou007 (450) - FRANCE - FEB 25, 2013
A pale and cloudy yellow colour, with a medium frothy head. I tried gueuze twice before, this was my third tasting and I’m defenitely not into that style of beer ! Aromas are citrus, hops, yeast and spices. On the tongue, it’s salty and sour. Too weird for me.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - NOV 28, 2008
375ml bottle, 2004 vintage. Cloudy golden apricot pour with a quarter inch white head that disapates quickly. Great nose, strong barnyard aroma along with dry hay. Flavors are strong funky barnyard with a tart and dry finish.

Ontape (448) - Valley Village, California, USA - APR 6, 2014
2/1/2013 bottle picked up last year and popped on a nice holiday weekends. Dry, earthy funk that you pretty much only get from the real deal. Beautiful in the glass like very few sours are. Not just sour but complex with subtle waves of flavor and funk that never say die ... there’s so much happening. This is a treat and hard to rate -- numbers don’t really tell the story.

Bottle sample @Cantillon Quintessence 2014. Tasted a 1 year old (2013) and 12 year old (2002) version. 2013 : light orange. Aroma is tart. Taste sour, dry bitterness, dry finish. : 5/10, 3/5, 6/10, 3/5, 11/20. 2002 : cloudy light orange with a tiny white head. Aroma is a bit sour but not that acerbic.
