Clear orange color with a fluffy white head. Big funky barnyard smell with hints of sour fruit in the background. Nice tart flavor. Acidic even. Some barnyard flavors. Thirst quenching. This is some fucking good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very tart, funky and fruity. Bottled. Poured into a tall, skinny tumbler. Beer is a hazy, medium, caramel-brown color with an average-sized, white, frothy, diminishing head. The aroma is sharp and unmistakabe. It’s malty with sweet moderate note of caramel and cookie, light note of toasted grain; Heavily yeasty with notes of horseblanket, attic/cobweb; Miscellaneous aromas include moderate lemon/citrus, sour green apple, vinous sour grape, light notes of peach and oak, trace note of chemical/plastic. The flavor is Moderately sweet, moderately-to-heavily acidic, lightly bitter with a long, lightly acidic and trace bittersweet finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively-to-fizzy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Burnt orange color with virtually no head. You can smell strawberries as the bottle is corked. IDK the vintage but its at least 3 years old. Aroma is light wine vinegar, barnyard and rubber bands. Body is nicely carbonated but I’d like to see a bit more head retention. Taste is grapefruit zest and apricots. I like to "old" flavor that the funkiness brings. Just a bit on the sweet side to be called refreshing but there’s a lot of good flavor in here.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 12.7 oz bottle into a Flute glass. Pours a murky orangish yellow hue with a tiny and bubbley white head. Larger bubbles are seen raising to the top of the brew. Aroma is extremely acidic and farmy, with a touch of yeast and mold notes. Flavor is very tart and acidic, while also tasting like the barnyard as well. Semi-woody in certains aspects. Although I can’t drink a lot of any type of Gueze at once, this one is definitely a keeper!

2.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Maybe I don’t truly appreciate lambics, but this one didn’t do it for me. Body is cloudy yellow/orange with a small white head. Aroma is undeniably ’Animal House’ frat basement (Alpha Delta, Dartmouth College, 1963). Flavor is extremely sour, though not entirely unpleasant.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy orange with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sherberty, yeast and extremely acidic with minor barnyard notes. Flavor is heavily acidic with woody/pit like notes and a beautiful funk. The finish is lovely and extremely dry.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pous a very cloudy, opaque yellow/hay amber color. The head is respectable within style, although no lacing. The aroma is tart lemons, some barnyard. The flavor is all brett, lemons, some leather, some horseblankets, some barnyard. After it warms, a little bit more of the burnt rubber flavors in there with some acetic (vinegar) type flavors. Not as complex as I’d have assumed (I personally like the cheesy aspects), but refreshing, crisp, tart, and sour. Mouthfeel is certainly acidic. A little on the harsh side for a blended gueuze (almost came across as a straight lambic).

Pours bright amber into a tumbler. Started to foam up the head of the bottle, but quickly disspated when poured into the glass. Leather and horseblanket aromas. Light bodied and fizzy with tart, sour lemon peel flavors. Dry and lasting sour lactic finish.
