UPDATED: NOV 8, 2012 31st July 2010. ChrisOs Pre GBBF - ’Raise The Roof’ tasting. The tempo at the tasting by this point was getting a bit extreme, some rushed notes: Crisp palate - turns soft. Sour malt but has a sweet note as well. Very drinkable sour. Orignal Rating 3.4

CanIHave4Beers (3673) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Bottle at RBSG, from alexdad06 at the RBSG Grand Tasting. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a small head and some lace. The aroma is lemon rind, dirty laundry, and some hay and horse sweat (farmyardy stuff). The flavor is very sour yet nicely fruity with some earthiness, some apricot, some woodiness, and a nice but almost overwhelming acidity.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Bottle at RBSG, from alexdad06 at RBSG. Thanks! Pours a hazy orange-gold with nice head. Nose is soemwhat fresh. Still get barnyard and horsey but also some nice lemony notes, no vinegar to be found. Lactic acid and distant washed-rind cheese. On taste, nice fresh grash notes with a softened 3F type sourness that is lush on the palate. Nice funky and dry finish. Superb.

planky84 (2572) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2010
Bottle at Chris O’s ‘Raise the roof’ tasting. Sour, green apple and herby aromas. Lemon, cheese and lime flavours. Quite citrusy. Not bad.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2010
Bottle at chriso’s pre-GBBF ’Raise the Roof’ Shindig ’10. Gold with a white head. Quite a subtle aroma with sweetness and sourness. Somehow the taste didn’t work for me. I thought it was plastic and nasty. To be honest I really didn’t like it at all.

Effervescence often gets in the way of the flavors of gueze, I feel. That’s not the case here - there’s nothing for the bubbles to get in the way of.

The smell is faintly of lemons. The taste, once you penetrate the half foot of head, is inconsequential - lemon peel and light acid. Move your tongue a millimeter and the liquid bursts into foam.

Stone makes frequent references to fizzy yellow beer, and this one fits the bill. And at €12.50, it doesn’t even have the benefit of being cheap.

Bottle shared by Alexsdad06 at the RBSG Grand Tasting. Pours a hazy peach color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Tart, dry and musty aroma with sweet berry-like fruit notes and citrus. The taste is berries, cherries and a slight musty note. Medium bodied. Very nice.

TheAlum (6487) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2010 Sampled at the RBSG Summer Grand Tasting (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours nice glowing golden yellow, a touch of orange murky with nice white head that dies to a good lace. Aromas are big tartness, lemon and orange mix with with sour bretty funky, dust, lemon zest, dust, sour wheat. Initial is similar, lighter bodied with sour wheat, lemon rind, sweeter bready malts work there way iin, touch of vanilla, with lemon fruit, citrusy spritz, a sweeter malty finish, lingering dust and lactic acid. A very nice lambic, a nice balance but a bit light on sourness for me. The ability to blend so many barrels probably played into it here, with a touch more sweetness than I’d like. Still, very quaffable.
