wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Reviewed from notes. Tasted from bottle at Lush Roscoe. pours cloudy yellow orange with a thin white head. The nose is sour and tart with some vinegar and burnt rubber funk, lemon, and tart green apple. Flavor is tart and funky with good earthiness, lemon acidity, bread, and some vinegar. The body is light with sparkling carbonation and a long tart and bitter finish.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2010
Bouteille de 750 ml. Arômes de levures sauvages (cidre, brettanomyces), touche d’acide acétique. Robe blonde et légèrement trouble, effervescence moyenne et belle petite mousse. Très intense en bouche, le côté lactique de la bière est très bien développé et on retrouve également un petit mordant acétique (bien que celui-ci est peu présent au nez). Plus ronde en bouche qu’un lambic typique, on retrouve également une pointe d’alcool et une présence de tanins de chêne en fin de bouche. Très intéressant, mais ne possède pas le raffinement des meilleures gueuzes.

douglas88 (7247) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 31, 2010
A 750 ml bottle shared by the bartender at Delirium. Pours a bright copper color with a small white head. Looks like best by 2012. A sweet dry fruity nose, yeast and dried fruit. The flavor is very nice; sweet fruit, dry old yeasty flavors, not very sour, quite fruity. The pour is pretty opaque. Enjoyable.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors.
Aroma: The nose has a nice tart note with a slight floral undercurrent. A little cider, hay, and horse blanket emerge as the brew warms up a bit.
Appearance: It pours a nice gold color with a sizeable foamy white head.
Taste: The flavor is clean with the expected upfront acidity followed by light hay and an almost chardonnay like taste. There is a touch of light sweetness on the back end.
Palate: Light in body with above average levels of carbonation and a nice, clean finish.
Overall: A great example of the style, extremely well balanced and highly recommended!
