brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - MAY 21, 2010
750mL bottle. Pours a pale reddish amber with a finger or two of head. Smells like a balanced geueze, but slightly sweeter with touch of ripe cherry. Taste is sour, somewhat tart, with some barnyard, hay and bitter citrus peel. Finish is nice, the sour and bitter flavors fade away evenly.

Bottle with a best before date of 04/2013 thanks to thirdeye11. Pours with a hazy golden body and a small white head. Aroma is very floral, flowers, corky, musty, acidic. Taste is sour, but with a light malty sweetness following. Floral and musty, acidity rounding it out. Light bubbles. Very nice.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle. Hazy golden orange with a small ivory-colored head. Nice lacings. The aroma is funky with notes of aged cheese, grape skin and fructose. The flavor is sour and tightly held with funky undertones. Motes of grass and lemon. The acidity mellows out towards the end as a fairly noticeable sweetness develops. Ends with notes of minerals and tart fruits. Medium body, very dry and sparkling. A good one. In the close proximities of gueuze territory.

puggy211 (712) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2010
THIS is why I drink beer!!!!! Clear gold, a nice column of carbonation leads to a fluffy white head in my ommegang glass. Nose is lemon pits, lavendar, slight oxidation (fades w. time), tingly grapefruit juice all bound together by hay-like malt. Flavor is much less acidic than the nose implies. There is certainly some nice lemony acidity but that is tempered by pils malt, grapefruit, general funk, grapes. Finish is lemon pit & white grapes, unripe yellow plums. Understated, smooth & wonderful.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Aroma is bright with lemon zest and juices, bitter, piny hops, earth, dust, and cheese. Taste is dusty old hops, intense lemon rind, cheese,a bit of band-aid/gauze, and lemon juice. I also get an underlying crisp biscuit base. Finish is sour, slightly bitter, and refreshing. Very good! Bottle consumed best before 2013 (consumed 2010)

Clear amber pour with generous carbonation. Sour apple taste with slight malt finish. Would probably be even better aged a few years. Rated 4/16/10

750mL bottle shared by cquiroga, thanks Chris. Bottled July 2007. Clear medium orange with a small off-white head, fading to a ring. Leathery grapefruit rind leathery cork (thanks Chris) nose. Flavor not quite as sour as the nose, though still plenty of leather and cork. Light sweetness--very light. Bone dry with some light grapefruit rind and yeastiness. Sourness peaked at a 6, bitterness at a 2, light alcohol burn. Light carbonation with a light to medium body.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - APR 19, 2010
Pours a hazy orange color with a nice white head. Very funky aroma with green apples, unripe gooseberries, lemon light oak and barnyard. Flavour is very sour and dry with lots of lemon, green apples, gooseberries, oak and funk. Medium bodied with a quite lively carbonation. Very nice.
