UPDATED: APR 19, 2006 Bottle. Acidic, farty, earthy aroma. Unclear golden colour, very small white head. Acidic, vinegary flavour with a hint of bitterness. Aftertaste is tanninlike, but not that bitter with a soft, lingering acidity. Soft carbonation.

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle at home - 19/08/12. Pours an apricot shade of orange with a billowing slightly off-white head which soon vanishes to a little edgeing. Earthy sour green fruits, grandads shed, burnt sugar and accidental piss against the radiator in a mark I toilet! Tarte and sour fruit taste, apple and burnt caramel. Medium body and a nice soft level of carbonation. Dry crisp finish with a sour and apple infused aftertaste. Tops!

A: A 750 ml bottle with a bottling date of 2008 shared with the girlfriend. A pour into my Bruery tulip is a burnt orange color with very little head and quite a bit of bubbles. S: Now this is a funky beverage. A ton of Brett character with a tinge of lactic sourness and oak. T: As funky as the nose is, that’s how sour it is on the tongue. There is a lot of lactic tartness and it’s very acidic. There’s a bit of lemon flavor and a lot of Brett. On the finish is a fair bit of oak. M: Surprisingly this is not all that bubbly. I’m used to Gueuze being a very bubbly beverage, but I suppose that could be due to a short maturation period (ie. my fault). D: This is a very, very acidic beer. As a result, it’s tough to drink a lot of. However, it does taste very good, so it’s also something you want to drink lots of. A strange dichotomy indeed.

bhensonb (12960) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 13, 2007
375 ml. bottle. A nice Bret type aroma combined with honey. A sour whiff. The color is a light orange gold with a white head that ringed. A bit thin bodied. The carbonation is very mild. The flavor is primarily lactic sour. There are varying fruit notes, to accompany the earthy, Bretty, funkiness. Could be old mushrooms or sweat sox. Very interesting. Not an everyday drink, I think. Refreshing in an unusual way.

Tmoney99 (12413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Cork and cap bottle. Poured cloudy orange color with a minimal fizzy head that diminihed quickly with fair lacing. Heavy fruity and sour citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a dry texture. Heavy tart sour flavor with a medium bitter finish of long duration. This is a standout beer for a select few.
