FlacoAlto (3838) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Sampled at Of Love & Regret - Pub & Provisions; January 2013
The beer arrives from the tap with a lightly hazed, gold color. It is topped by a pale, head. The aroma smells tart, with lactic acid notes, and with touches of urea. There is quite a bit of fruit character in the nose as well, and this is backed by an earthy grain character that has notes of dried straw / hay to it.

The flavor is not nearly as sour as I was expecting; there is a definite tartness here but it is fairly soft, especially for a Gueuze / Lambic. This has a hay like grain character to it and it is lightly funky with an earthy, sort of musky character to it.

This is definitely quite a bit different from the bottled product; it needs more sourness, but it is still quite good in the end. It has more of an earthy & funky character to it than biting tartness, but in honesty, even the former is held well in check; clean, would be a good way to describe this. Somehow comes off as being a bit like a tamed Gueuze and I wonder if not being bottle conditioned has an effect on this (but I can’t see that being the total explanation here).

yourilevesque (305) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
Bière jaune paille ne présentant que très peu de mousse. Celles-ci, après sa courte vie, laisse à vif une bière inerte. Au nez, de la pomme verte, du raisin, un petit bois mouillé et du citron. Les vapeurs acétiques sont modérées. Plutôt florale en bouche avec un effervescence modérée, cette bière est sèche - très sèche. Des saveurs printanières et (encore une fois boisées), je suis assis devant une bière à cheval entre un jus de jeunes pommes et un vin blanc.

Hamirubi (298) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2015
25cl draught at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels (Belgium). Hay, golden, yellow gueuze, with hazy appearance and bright foam. A little funk, tart, with exceptional taste: Fruity, citrus, even lemon. A sweet gueuze, very sweet even. Not my favorite, nonetheless a classic drink.

Sample @ 1st Tilquin English Beer festival + Open Doors
La surprise vient de son maltage très "fromenté", doux et aérien en bouche qui arrive à l’attaque avec une douceur presque soyeuse, et qui se termine avec une gentille amertume bienveillante; l’acidité arrivant dans un second temps mais avec une belle persistance en bouche. En rétro, je garde cette fine acidité bien maîtrise avec les arômes maltés. A boire et à reboire...

bartlebier (2537) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2015
Draught@source, SA&SU TdG 2015. This slightly less complex, yet much more sessionable draught version of the stellar gueuze offers an inviting crash course in natural lemonade-style fruity tartness of fresh squeezed lemons and the odd green apple peel thrown in, combined with a quenching, but not lipsmacking dryness and invigourating effervescence. Teasing wine vinegar prickles, kept in check. Not as much funky complexity, cheesy notes as their special blend lambics, but straight-up light & summery goodness, rounded off with a nice astringent old hop note. Would have this on draft more regularly if only available anywhere in the civilised world outside of the blending hall’s perimeter.
