Wonderful gueuze cheesy character, acidic sourness. Perfectly fits the mold for style. Very nicely done.

Bottle at Where the Wild Beers Are. Murky amber pour. Sharp acetone in the nose with lemon peel and oak. Flavor is sharply acetic with pear and lemon. A touch of harsh nail polish. Acid lingers and lingers. Thankfully thereís some delicious lemon tartness to back it up.

Bottle (there were actually two!) at the Where the Wild Beers Are event graciously hosted by Mission Dolores. Pours a murky and milky amber with a thin white head. Sour funk, brett, wood and bugs. Awesome acid in here, the Cantillon stands out very nicely. Lingering tart acidity. Great stuff.

This one was brought in by my good friend Phil (The Ferm) from www.dosbeerigos.com to a recent tasting. I was told that this was pretty rare and it was a sour. Since Iím down for both sours and rare beers I was pretty excited to try it. Like a lot of the sours that I had that day this one held a lot of good fruit qualities and tartness. The thing that Iím finding out the most about sours are that even if the carbonation is high or low it still delivers a good punch of flavor. Whereas if you get a big Imperial stout, such as the double barrel aged Marshal Zukhov stout from Cigar City, the carbonation is really low and the flavors might not jump out at you right away, I know it didnít for me. This beer warmed me up to the pit of my stomach, literally. I sipped it and felt a burning sensation to the pit of my stomach. Nothing super intense, but just enough to say "Wake Up you wimp!!". Really enjoyed this beer, simply put.

Bottle (dregs)Ö South Florida Throwdown 2010Ö Hazy pear-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Funky, fruity bouquet. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is fruity and tart, but not crazy sour. Iím tasting some lightly sweet berries, but canít place them. Lengthy, bittersweet, tart finish. Bottle courtesy Dstructo. Thanks, Ryan!

100th Wild Ale tick, hell yeah! 750ml bottle thanks to chswimmer. Pours hazy golden with a small white head that lasts, leaving white foam and good lacing. The aroma is tart and funky, a little lemony. Good. The flavor is great, really on the sour side with Belgian and wild yeast, lots of lacto, oak, and barnyard funk. Tasty. Nice acidic mouthfeel with fairly high carbonation and a lively mouthfeel. Really solid Belgium beer.

750 ml bottle shared with Greg, Ruth, DC and the bar in the presence of Mr. Obama and his secret service (fundraiser, apparently). Cloudy straw color, small white head. Aroma of barnyard, dust, lemon peel. Taste resembles a very sophisticated geuze! Very nice example of a wild ale, exactly on style. I wonder what Jean v.R thinks of this one??

750 ml bottle at Poechenellekelder drank with Sean. Pours a cloudy golden color with a fluffy medium white head. The aroma is fruity and yeasty malts, suggestions of tart lambic flavors. A tart fluffy flavor, some fruit, lots of sharp tart oak, drinkable though. Quite dry and oaky. Really nice. Unexpected. Hard to pin down, lots of Gueuze flavors.

75cl Bottle @ Poechenellekelder, Brussels: Pours hazy orange with a creamy white head and lacings. Lovely nose of young Cantillon lambic. Funky; fruity, apples, wood, hoppy and quite a lot of brett. Crisp, tart and dry. Smooth. Nice one

courtesy of Laurent Mousson - cloudy golden-orange colour with a little pale beige head left; strong aroma of cork, cheese and apples, a light note of solvant; moderate carbonation and medium-bodied, a bit oily palate; quite dry and with a fair sourness/acidity; long fruity finish with more reminiscence of cork and pear - complex
