Blind taste test Idí swear up and down this is a gueuze....virtually no fruitiness (grapes in this case supposedly) but still pretty decent and challenging. Iíd say the main flavor was sour wheat.

extrememly pungent with a bitter almost alcohol like aroma. pale golden/yellow color with no head and small amounts of lacing. Extremely sour and has a shocking bite in the flavor. I enjoyed this, but there are other lambicís that i enjoy more.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
My first real lambic (this is hardly a fruit lambic). Really unpleasant beer. Aroma is bacon, horseblanket, and must. Mouthpuckeringly sour, which is cool with me, but ridiculously musty. I donít like my beers tasting like pork products. Really gross.

I had this brew at Dr. BIllís 12 Hour Beer extravaganza in Anaheim, CA on August 20, 2005. Thanks, Dr. Bill.
This beer is a study in sourness, and not in a good way. I simply did not enjoy it.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen. Incredibly intense farmhouse aroma combined with an equally intense sour fruitiness. Intensely sour gueuze flavour, lemony as hell. Funky and lemony aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Marcelloís Wine Market, Baton Rouge, La. - 1 pt 9.4 oz bottle. Pours a murky light orange with a quickly dissipating white head. Sweaty aroma, perhaps this is "horse blanket" not sure - but it does have a barnyard quality to it - odd - but not unpleasant. Flavor sets a new standard for sour. 10 out of 10 on the pucker scale. Some sour grape notes in there. Very earthy and unpolished. Reminds one of drinking grapefruit juice after brushing your teeth. Which is nice in a lambic - if you are expecting it. Dry mouthfeel, but the finish is just a bit off - slighlty sulphuric.

Hazy yellow, no head. Sour, leather aroma. Sour, fruity with grape flavor. Some notes of oak and earth. Delicious Cantillon.

Bottle 1999 vintage poured a clear gold with a white head. Aromas of funky, sour and acidic with a hint of grapes.Mouthfeel is very crisp. Flavor was tart and sour [of course] with some vinous notes, and some grape showing up in the finish.
