From a cask, on handpump in Leuven at the BBF. Poured nice and light brown, with minimal head. Expected tart aroma, flavour very sharp and citrus, strong dry, bitter aftertaste.

Draft at Rustico. Poured a hazy copper color with a small white head. Aroma was a touch of sour, a light fruity character to it. Flavor was sour light fruits. Pretty refreshing and interesting.

Fat @ Moeder Lambic: Trevlig syrlig doft, smaken är frisk med tydliga toner av gröna vindruvor. Inte någon större skillnad från flaskvarianten trots lägre alkohol

lusikka (5373) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2013 Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.
Pours a hazy bright yellow colour with a white firm head. Aroma of sharp citric lemons with some leathery notes. Flavour of sharp citric lemons, hay, some floral notes and strong grapefruit. Light bodied, high carbonation, thinnish mouthfeel and a slightly dry, sharp citric finish. A straightforward gueuze, which seems to be a toned down version of the bottled version with way too high carbonation. Good drinkability, though. 7-3-8-3-14 3.5

Re-rate after multiple ratings in Brussels and in Tuulensuu.
Still tartness isn’t too strong - instead the sharp grapefruity notes are, which makes this a very drinkable gueuze and quite a thirst quencher. I could drink this all day. Got to raise the points. 8-3-9-3-15 3.8

laiti (4951) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2012
Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu
Aroma is sour with lots of earthy notes, some grapefruit and hints of orange Flavour is sour, somewhat acidic and tart with earthy notes, some orange and grapefruit that gets stronger towards the finish. Refreshing and good, does not differ much from the bottled version. Also some similarities with Cantillon Gueuze.

On tap during the 43 Hours Of Sour at The Birch, Norfolk, VA. Hazy, straw colored pour with a white head. The aroma is sort of funky with notes of strong cheese and citrus. The funkiness follows to the flavor. Apricot and peach are detected as well. A great gueuze.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
November 18, 2011 - on draught at Blue Monk. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Amazing aroma - sour lemon, dry oak, sharply dry floral bitterness, charred, musty and dusty - and hardly any alcohol. Taste is good - sour, musty, acidic, but lighter and balanced. Average body, medium-strong acidity, very lively, finishes dry and buzzy - very dangerously easy to drink, nice one!
