(Bottled, 0.75l) Opaque orange with a smallish, firm head. Very citric-fruity, tart aroma with strawberry. Flavor is also very fruity and dry with moderate acidity with some berry notes. Medium body, dry and astringent palate, slightly fizzy carbonation. A very successful and pleasant blend, IMO.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Hazy dark orange color with a foamy head. Seems a bit strangely simple for such a complex brew. Quite sour and really tart. Lots of tart citrus, lemon, peel and finishes dry. Really prickly sour.

Fin (7674) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2009
Bottle that I picked up at Dranken Geers, Belgium consumed in garden 25-06-09 Pours orange/amber white head, quite hazy. Lemony nose, bit of dusty old furniture, slight sharpness, fruity. Taste is more of the same but the lemon is quite punchy, not as sharp as expected but nice, maybe 3-4 years on this will be even better? Likeable beer though, which went down well on a summers evening. A7 A3 F7 P4 Ov15 3.6

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2009
Golden and hazy. Slight hint of poo and overall a fairly spicy aroma. Quite fizzy, herbal and chinotto-like bitterness with light pale malts. Sort of an earthy finish. Quite boon-like and not really my pocket of gueuze.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2009
Bottled@Fonefan. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is distinctive 3 fonteinen and also some timmermans gueuze. As it warms up also the Cantillon sourness comes. Flavour is very wooden, sour fruity and apricotty. Once you get closer to the end of the bottle it gets more harsh grassy, sour wooden and dry. A very complex gueuze, which will probably mellow out through the years. But also very nice already now.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2009
Bottle @ WSF. Slight haze, golden-amber and some fizzy bubbles. Sweet fruity aroma. Gentle carbonation. Nice, sweet, and hammy in places but tart and pithy in others. Generally good and lovely.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Generously shared by OSCF at his gathering - thanks, Todd! P00tz took more than his share of this, but I still got a healthy sampling of this funky brew. Cantillon must have been sick the day the blended this one. Pale orange pour with cloudy sediment and some pretty nice carbonation, a nice layer of foam sitting on top. Very aggressive and yeasty nose, which I enjoyed quite a bit in its unapologetic intensity. This sharp nose tells you that the young lambics are dominating right now, and that’s certainly evident in the mouth-puckering taste too. Funky and tart as hell, I wonder what this one will be like in a couple years.

emacgee (4138) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Thanks todd for sharing. Pours a light hazy yellow with a one finger white head. The nose is strong, tart, nice barnyard/yeasty character, less subdued than some geuze’s. The flavor is tart, appley, nice acidity, funky, nice yeasty flavors, will be great with a year or two more on it.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Thanks to Toodmister for this! I think P00tz summed it up best : aroma of musty armpits and old sponge. Tart citric acid with notable oaky hints and leather. A little sweet currently, still very nice with some excellent aging potential

P00Tz is baaaaaaaaack!!! Smells musty armpits, old sponges, lemon, some light sourness. This is a pretty good lambic shared by the Toddmister. P00Tz likes. the P00tzster is still getting used to this style but could use more exposure. Yet again P00tz’s beer life shares similarities with his woman life. First P00tz needs more stout women and then P00tz needs more stout beer.
