Dogbrick (8682) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. The beer pours a pale yellow color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing. Barnyard aroma with citrus and herbal notes. Medium-bodied with flavors of funky citrus, earthy yeast and grassy wheat. The finish is funky with a citrusy aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

2013 edition. Very smooth gueuze, very good. Does what you would hope and is a fine blend rather than a mess. I’d certainly have this again.

eduardovl (968) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 750ml bottle served in a tulip glass. 2011 Edition. Best before 28.10.2030. Bottle number 023099. A: Pours a slightly cloudy orange color forming a big and bubbled white head. Quite fizzy with a lot of bubbled coming from the bottom of the glass. Medium retention, practically no lacings and a thin layer that remains forever on the top S: Very fruity, citrus and flowery. Strong notes of oranges, apples, pears, vinegar, sweet pale malts, flowery hops. A bit metallic. Earthy Lambic yeasts T: Very fruity upfront. Funky. Notes of oranges, orange zest, grapefruit, vinegar and flowery hops. Dry but very smooth Lambic. Delicious. The only defect is the end that is not very persistent for such a delicious taste M: Light body. Very fizzy. Medium carbonation. Metallic, hoppy and fruity aftertaste O: Perfect drinkability. Perfect Lambic [ BA Review @ 6/14/2014 ]

The 2013 bottle.. Pours clear with a slight orange hue, top is thin. The aroma is wonderful, flower, hay like perfect summer breeze.. So appearances and aroma is close to perfect.. Taste is not disappointing, slightly sour, as it should be again some hay and fruit very easy to drink but yet a full flavor. Extremely enjoyable. One of the best beers I have tasted.. Will try to find more... Lovely
