Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Amber color. Profoundly sweet-smelling. Sugary flavors are initially like grape juice, then round out to a farina-like cereal ending. Thin palate. Not bad but way too sweet for my liking.

ChainGangGuy (4564) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Appearance: Pours a garnet-hued body with a fizzy, off-white head. Smell: Shocking aroma of noxious weeds, spoiled cherries, and wound-tainted gauze bandages. Taste: Bottom-shelf cherry cordial with a sharp, cheap sweetness and notes that you dare not identify lest they come hunt you down like a dog in the night. Odd, relentless astringency throughout. A beer as painful as the realization that Santa does not exist. Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Legendarily bad! A "What Were They Thinking" kind of beer.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Pours a cherry red color with a slight white head. Aroma is musty old wet wood and mold. Flavor is sweet raspberry, not quite as syrupy as some of their other beers and a slight mold aftertaste.

theisti (3517) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 8, 2008
375 ml bottle from Beastiefan2k, shared at the csbosox tasting on 3/7/08. Eugene gave me this beer and said that it tasted like vomit. Spoiler alert - I didn’t. Aroma of burning celery salt, vomit, and raspberries. OK, maybe it smells like vomit. Do I really want to taste this? Taste is really big sweet raspberries with the vegetable saltiness right behind. Raspberry syrupy sweetness dominates a very long finish. Glad this was the last one of the night because I am still tasting it the next day. This is a tough one to describe, really needs to be tasted. Well, needs may be a bit strong. Thanks Eugene?

Jerre (3019) - Waregem, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2008
Bottle 37,5 cl @ home (bought Geers) Amber color with a creamy off-white head. Aroma fruits, malt, sweet. Medium body. Taste sweet, fruit, and sourness. Not bad, but i’ll expected more.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Poured a clear medium amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma was odd to say the least. Apple cider vinegar, wood and old spice (not the cheap cologne). It actually smelled like apple cider cole slaw with raisin salad. The flavor was sweeter than I expected. Sweet apple notes.

Tranquillity (1496) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2008
330ml bottle @ One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Belgian Week 2008. Contains aroma & sugar, but tastes like a strawberry milkshake. Quite clear, red-amber, small white head. Aroma of strawberry. Taste a bit sour, with earthy notes.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2008 Rating is a composite of these 2: Bottle (ZBF2008)
Amber brown, small tight head. Sweet fruity aroma. Sweet mellow taste, caramel dominates. Fruity raisins make it more interesting but a bit too sugary.
rerate of:
330ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Belgian Week 2008) as ’Winter Gueuze’
Huge raspberry aroma. In fact, it’s hotdogs, apple and raspberry. Fresh and tasty. A bit too sweet, but no worse than many other fruit lambics.

Skyview (5345) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Sampled at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, Minnesota as Chapeau Winter Gueuze and shared by joebrew. Pours a clear brownish caramel brew with a fizzy off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and ring. Aroma of light cherry Vicks Nyquil with some barnyard yeast funk and some citrus zest. Taste is semi-sweet cherry, a touch of cinnamon, vanilla, and front yard lawn. Finish has a good balance of sweet and tart character with a light cherry aftertaste and a mild yeast flavor.

TrefwoordPunk (833) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle 37,5 cl. The front says "winter-gueuze, the back calls this x-mas gueuze) Pours a clear orange with a small white head and a fruity aroma, sweet with hints of citrus and more exotic fruits. The flavor is pretty sweet to start with, apple, cherry, lemon and liquid sugar, but there are some notes that I can’t really nail down. After the mild sweet comes a mild sour, evolving into a mildly sweet finish. Not a good beer, just a one-dimensional and too sweet lambic, but not as bad as some might say.
