Nose is most reminiscent of Hanssens with lots of cheesy, funk. The flavor shows Hanssens funk, Drie Founteinen citrus rind and Boon’s sugar water. Spritzy, thin body.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Pours a transparent deep golden with a frothy, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh grassy tartness and lemon citrus with a touch of funk. Starts with good fullness and a lot of pale malty sweetness for the style before a clean, slightly puckering citrusy finish. Full bodied and a little sweet for the style, but has nice tart balance and oaky complexity. An enjoyable gueuze.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2009
Bottle (thanks Mes). Was excited to try it, but was a little underwhelmed. Perhaps it was the age, or perhaps the blend wasn’t right, but i fund this quite sweet, flat and a touch dull. Some effervescent sourness, and funky complexity, but not enough. Not very assertive or balanced. Drinkable though.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Sampled at the ’09 RBPTE, courtesy of MrChopin. Great funky sour nose, with barnyard and horse blanket, tons of Brett and a light hop presence. Citrusy. Light amber hazy body with a large frothy white lacing head. Medium thin body with lively carbonation and a chalky finish. Moderate bitterness with huge sour funky flavors throughout and into the after with a chalky end. Terrific gueuze.

Bottle at RBESG grand tasting. Cloudy copper lasting beige head. Lovely lambic aroma with some farm yard. Sweet in mouth. Too sweet actually. Some lemon on finish. Good aroma though.

Bottle from the Hopduvel: Nice golden colour, Flavour was citrus and not too sour. The finish was dry and asking for another sip. Maybe a bit young though

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2009
0.75 l bottle at PBF. Slightly hazy deep golden color. Dry, acidic, grapefruity and lemony aroma. Dry and sharply acidic flavor with lemon and grapefruit. Very tasty, acidity could be softer though.

Sampled from a 750 ml green bottle this beer poured a cloudy yellow-golden color with a huge white head. The aroma was tangy, tart and bitter with a lemony presence. The flavor was tart, dry, lemony and had a light Sweettart candy presence. The finish was long, dry and tart. Ok.
