rederic (2942) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2006
Yellow gold color, with a huge white head, with lacing, the nose has a nice tart, acidic note , with barnyard and dusty accents, hint of mustiness, wet oakiness, with a faint cedary and green apples sourness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a mild sharpness character, with some light tart, acidic flavors, with some brettanomyces notes, good green apples sourness, hint of juicy lemony fruitiness, leading towards a real mild lambic dryness finish.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2006
Golden coloured with a thin creamy lacing white head. Complex lambic aroma of cherry, brett, wood, earth, cave, and malic acid. In mouth, an astringent apple, acidic points, ground cherries, with some sweetness. Rich and complex. A wonderful lambic. Bieropholie import.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2006
Bottle. Clear golden in colour with a rather large head. Slight sourness with citric notes. A bit too anonomous though. Very mild and easy forgettable.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2006
The pour reveals a clear golden color with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Excellent aroma of hay, musty cheese and strong, funky wild yeast. The flavor is also excellent and has the same hay, musty cheese and funk, of course, it is acid, it is really well balanced and classy, the flavor finishes sour and lactic. The body is medium with a powdery and oily texture, the carbonation is medium but strong for a gueuze. This is an excellent gueuze, it’s only flaw is that it’s not as good as the black label version.

mds (2209) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2006
Bottle. Pours aan orange-copper colour with a large white frothy head. The aroma is straight-up pine, grapefruit, sweat, and wood. Fruity apple tartness, wood, and cheesy flavours. Sparkly wheat character. Very drinkable.

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc, mds & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy orange with a good size fluffy white head. Aroma is nice and funky with sour fruit, yeast and spices. Flavour is tart, sour and funky -- as expected -- and it’s very nice and tasty. Not as acidic as some quality Geuzes making it very easy to drink. Medium bodied. Not as complex as the ’Black Label’ but still a damn fine Lambic!

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle shared with the regular crew plus MDS at Greg’s, Harry’s bottle. Really really good aroma - so funky - ammonia, sulfur, yeast, earthy outdoor barnyard - it is all here and oh so good. Dark yellow, small white head. Wow, super funky taste- compared favourably to the Black label based on my memory, this would be a dream double to have at a tasting. More funk than the aroma even suggests. Thin to medium bodied and foamy. Short linger which is a tiny let down. Maybe just not quite as complex as the black, but all the right flavours are there. Not acidic at all. What a wonderful beer - how do these guys do it?

GregClow (2892) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc, tupalev & mds - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pour a slightly hazy sunset gold with a moderate white head. Aroma - cheese, citrus, wet dog, vinegar, sulphur, barnyard - I know, that sounds completely disgusting, but oh no it’s not! Flavour is sour and funky without being overly acidic - not as complex as the Black or other hardcore gueuzes, but much more quaffable. Could it be a session gueuze?? I wish I had enough bottles to find out...
