KimJohansen (10396) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2007 Golden with tiny head. Aroma is sour with horseblanket, hay, cheese and leather. Fantastic concentrated sour flavor with apples, citrus, wood, hay and barnyard. Fantastic. Vintage 2003 - Dark golden with small head. More mellow and rounded. Lost some sourness. 9, 4, 9, 5, 17 = 4,4

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2007
Bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Deep amber gold beer, lightly hazed with a thin white head. Fantastic aroma, farmhouse funk, lemon/lemongrass, strong acidity, barnyard. Very tart but a bit brighter than Cantillon, leaning more towards lemon and citrus. Earthy and dusty. Great balance and loads of character. Awesome brew.

beastiefan2k (2861) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2011 750ml bottle from beerbuzzmontreal, I love you French Canadians, thank you so much. Shared with lots of people at JoeMcPhee’s for CaptainCougar comes to NY. Yellow/orange colored body and poured with a medium head that quickly fades. Aroma is super strong spicy sourness, so damn stingy on the nose. Taste is much more subdued sourness with a strong lemon aftertaste. Very spiky motuhfeel but otherwise a light body. Long aftertaste of sour fruit. A very acidic beer, as acidic as some Cantillon’s but with its own signature. A delicious sour packed, not for first timers, punch in the face, beer. 9/3/8/4/17

I must have had a very good bottle the first time around because I have had this twice since and it has not been as good. I guess a filtered version is a good way to describe it. Much less acidic, some sweeter (for gueze) aspects. Duller all around. Still good stuff but nothing as close as the first. 8/3/7/3/15

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Courtesy jayg. Hazy gold and a modest, frothy, white head. Huge aroma of the funk, very sharp citrus and pine, subtle vinegar, earth, and oak. Same flavor, a bit more mild. Medium body, balanced carbonation. Very nice.

notalush (5388) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Thanks to beastiefan2k for sharing - hazy straw color, with a thin layer of foam on top - strong, but not overpowering barnyard/horseblanket aroma, with apparent acidity - fairly acidic flavor - earthy grape skin notes - wheat is fairly apparent - dry tartness that is not as palate-abusing as most lambics - in other words, you can drink a bottle of this and still taste things in the morning - probably a good intro to this style - complex yet understated.

Jerre (3014) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2007
Bottle, 37,5 cl. Cloudy orange-golden color, with a white head. Aroma yeast, spice. Medium body. Taste good sourness on top, a bit malts, little bitter to.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2007
Courtesy of Mes. Much like the Black Label only toned down Light amber with a thin white head. Grapefruit vinegar nose with a yeasty note. Yeast, orange and straw flavour that lingers, I can still taste it now. Dry finish but quite enjoyable. Great intro for a session...

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2007
A Mes rate: 2002 37.5cl bottle from Kris Wines. Was originally worried about how things were stored at Kris Wines but considering this is 5 years old now it has clearly been well cellared. Slightly paler yellow than the black version (makes sense I guess) with a pretty stable but thin white head and the characteristic lacing. Lemon aroma with plenty of funk and a very slight sweet note not present in the other version. It does have the usual dry note that if you sniff to hard and long it makes you want to cough. Almost identical in the flavour to its bigger brother, lots of earthy barnyardy notes, plenty of straw and citrus and the pleasing hit of dry sour at the finish. Just a little softer and more chugable. Excellent start to an evening.

drewbeerme (3901) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2007
corked bottle. pours semi hazed golden with white head. not much going on in the nose, a little funky but thats really it. flavor is mildly funky with little bitterness, tart and sweet notes. the flavor just isn’t there. stick to the black label cuz this just doesn’t have it. very watery finish that leaves you sorta blah.
