(bottle, brought back from Belgium by friend) pale gold with white head. Tart, musty aroma. Flavor was sour and musty. Some yeast.

Pours cloudy with a lovely head. Wow this is good! Wonderfully complex. So much better then the relatively simple Boon Oude Gueuze. Sharp, tangy with some straw and lively fermentation. Some sourness with a fruity sweetness tip. Oh I do like this I need to try more Gueze as I have painfully little to judge it against.

koshack (1303) - Gdañsk, POLAND - AUG 21, 2016
Aromat intensywny. Kwaskowy, dziki. Jet cierpki. Aż drażniący. Jest lekka nuta kwaśnych jabłek. Potem nuta wytrawnych brzoskwiń. Potem pod nim wychodzi lekka słodowość. W smaku bardzo kwaśne. Cierpkawy w drugiej nucie, potem to mija. Zostaje bardzo przyjemny kwaskowy posmak. Przypomina bardzo kwaśnego, wytrawnego szampana.

ALIBALI (524) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2016
In der Nase ein kräftiger modriger Gärgeruch. Hört sich unangenehm an, passt aber gut zum Bier. Toll. Der Trunk schön wallend und leider etwas eindimensional sauer. Macht aber nichts, der Nachhall kommt schnell und ist gegen den Strom. Klar säuerlich gehört dazu, zusätzlich ist er aber auch gutmütig samtig. Was für ein Ausklang. 375ml Flasche direkt von der CANTILLON Brauerei. Ca.5-7 Euro???

ulrikolsen (268) - DENMARK - AUG 7, 2016
Tap@MoederLambic. Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma has light malt, but foremost brett, straw, horse stable, some sourness and citrus notes. Taste is fruity with citrus, brett, light malt, straw and semi-sour and pretty dry. Easy drinking and refreshing.

esp0r (2719) - NORWAY - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle shared with Simonsen at Hvaler
Golden, clear, thin white head. Smell of funk, silo, berries, barnyard, mold, wheat abd light malts. A very complex brett aroma. Light sweet, tart, medium to heavy sour, berries, complex brett and farm flavors, woody and oaky flavors after a while. Very good stuff

thepatrickman (778) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 5, 2016
2013 375ml bottle. All kinds of funk -- barnyard, cave, leather -- but light and dry, with essentially no sourness and a little bit of apple juice flavor at the end. Balanced, dry, but not quite as interesting as I was expecting. Still, this deserves it’s worldwide reputation.

beezydrunkit (20) - Alabama, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Bottle from Craft Bar in Grayton Beach, Florida. Pours deep gold with small white head that dissipates. Aroma smells of citrus funk, danky sour cave. Taste is tart lemon peel, funky, sharp, dank wood, medium to high carbonation. Medium body. Lengthy finish as the palate recovers from each sip. So good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gehbe (173) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 19, 2016
Aroma is spicy and earthy on top of all the funkiness and acetiness, but somewhat lacking depth. Lovely taste and palate: bone dry, not much sourness, phenolic/grapefruity bitterness gives it an extremely crispy finish. Amazing!
