subcombicio (163) - Marghera, - NOV 18, 2012
una sour ale dove l’acidità la fa da padrona. Molto beverina pur la gradatura non bassissima. Una delle migliori di questo birrificio.

ninecats (140) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
Pours hazy deep orange with a quickly dissipating two finger white head leaving no lacings. Aroma is green apples, citrus, some funkiness but not overly lambic funky. Taste is moderate tart at first, with green apples and berries, later a more distinct tartness with added tones of vinegar and citrus, until a sour grassy finish with a slight hoppy punch without being bitter. Medium body, medium carbo. This is refreshing and complex at the same time, lovely.

Experiment_Ale (1003) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Draft at moeder Lambic with Kimberly, Taylor. Pours hazy orange. Aroma is very much Gueuze, light refreshing. Taste is light to medium acidity, pretty dry, a little sharp on the citrus side, a bit of an off note that kills the beer and makes it kinda gross.

Cunningham (4439) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2014
Hazy golden color with a fine white head. The first that’s hits me with this one is that is lake a very dry grapefruit juice. Rocks your mouth at start. But you just have to handle it. If you like guze/lambic and sour wild ale. Just buy this one. A bit extreme, but really nice.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order, Sweden]

Alengrin (1344) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Blended beer (’versnijbier’ in Dutch) made from matured Guldenberg and Girardin lambic since 2007. Loose, off-white head, dirty copper colour. Complex old geuze smell, bit funky, barnyard-like, sherry, peach, orange, caramel; taste fruity, sourish, earthy, malty, light hoppy finish. Very well balanced, the lambic may play a bigger role in it than the Guldenberg, but the result is truly great - if you like Belgian sour beers, of course.

paologalloni (106) - ITALY - AUG 5, 2014
Bellissimo aspetto arancione carico quasi oro giallo piuma bianca inizialmente abbondante che se ne va lasciando bay merletti. Aroma pulitissimo fresco vinoso uva e acetico che si abbracciano prevale il lambic con i toni citrici e acetici. Ottima

Bottle. Hazy orange with a medium sized diminishing good lacing white head. Wooden, barnyard, band aid, sour berries, sweet over ripe fruits, light earthy, mouldy. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and sour. Good balance.
