AndresTM (306) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 9, 2014
Lime, brett, old furniture, funk, and hay in the nose. Very clean taste with good acidity and a salty touch. Tart but clean aftertaste that leans sweet, like Trolli worms.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAY 11, 2003
[bottle] Golden colour, cloudy appereance, nice head. Cheesy aroma. The flavour is obviously dominated by sourness, but it has also a great complexity with fruity traces (apple citrus and peach). Really pleasant, a great gueuze.

scotchzi (302) - Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Poor is nicely heady and hazy. Smell is like ground green apple seeds LOTS! of fruit acids. Taste is cheek burning lip puckering and eye squinting. AWESOME! Has HUGE green apple and tart pear flavors. Big aromatic florals. Great Beer. Will kill your taste buds after a glass but well worth is.

ramboraffe (297) - SWEDEN - APR 25, 2014
Bottle at Tre Små Rum Göteborg. Hazy gold with white head. Sour smell and sour wild taste, nice balancing bitterness.

RomanW70 (297) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Pours cloudy orange yellow. Sour, fruity, funky aroma. Taste is very tart and sweet, with a lot of noticeable funk and earthy flavores. Has almost no carbonation. Finish is extremely tart and sour. Tastes like Spring.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Juicy yelolow pour, quite hazy with fluffy white head, some bigger soda bubbles cling to the glass. Aroma is tart lemons and apples, vinegar, mild wood and leather, a good touch of cheesy funk to round it all out. Very tart (jaw clinched a bit) with the notes from the nose carrying through to the tongue. Woodyness a little more pronounced, very slight bandaid flavor. Finishes like a tart pear at first then quickly switches towards a woody drying mouth feel... still leaving the hint of juicy sourness behind, which definately makes me want to keep sipping this.

Straling (295) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2009
Bottle 75cl. Rated this some while ago, but only wrote down the scores and not the taste/aroma or anything, rather unfortunate. Anyway I remember it to be a nice gueuze, next time I have it I’ll remember to re-rate it.

Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2008 Poured hazy orange with medium sized loosely packed head. Nose displays obvious tartness, big cirtus/lemon notes present supported by earthy aromas of struck match (dont know about anyone else but i always get that with lambics...) Palate is really lean and tight (compared to the lindemans cuvee rene i’d sampled prior) with more lemon juice and some dusty leather. Super dry, tart finish keeps you wanting more!

BreWedge (294) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
375 ml bottle at L'Autre-Oeil. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is sour berries and green apple. Taste is a pleasant citric tartness with a touch of sweetness. Mouthfeel is sharp, with a medium sour finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bottle; I am a novice to sour beers but so far this has been by far the best i have had. Aromas of sweet and tons of sour with a little fruit aroma. Pours gold/yellow with a decent white head. Flavor is realllly sour. By far the sourest i have had, a little tart sweetness with hints of fruit. Reminds me of really sour fruit juice. I quite enjoyed it.
