Bottle: Small white head on top of a clear orange brown colored beer. Smell sour, yeast, wood, piss and spices. Taste is sweet, a bit lighter sour, spices, yeast, wood, brown sugars, light malty and a hint of hops. Aftertaste of (brown) sugars light sour and light spicy. Low carbo, mid body and soft mouthfeel. Actually pretty well balanced with sweets and sour.

Bottle. Pours a clear, slightly glowing dark orange with a moderate, fizzy off-white head. Aroma is similar to a cheap wine with sugar added to it. Some pleasant notes of cranberry and cherry offset with white sugar. Flavor is similar: some cranberry and blackberry notes, but it ultimately tastes like a wine soda. Itís an honor bar red wine loaded with sugar and sierra mist. The sugary sweetness outdoes the tart flavors, and thereís an odd dry wine aftertaste. I actually donít mind this all that much for a wine soda, no way in hell would I pay $6.50 for another taste.

12 oz. Bottle. Pours orange-amber with a small, short lived, off-white head and Champaign like carbonation. Aroma is of yeast, malt, brown sugar and barnyard. Full, tangy body. Taste is sweet malt, brown sugar and sour grapes. This brew could be a good substitute for Champaign.

DalzAle (2020) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle sample thanks to skinnyguy! Light brown pour, little carbonation and an aroma of slightly sweetened vinegar. Flavor is super sweet brown sugar, slick and lingering sweet malt on the aftertaste. Finally got the faro style rating, but I think itís safe to say this isnít a style Iíd try to go back to again.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2011 Bottle. Pour is amber in color and clear with a thin head that disapears quickly. Aroma comes off bitter sweet with some caramel and sour fruit. Taste was sweet and sour, but finished wanting more. Palate is thin and fizzy with a creamy dry finish.

Butters (4038) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
UPDATED: APR 16, 2016 Sampled at the Richmond Gather XIII. Clear golden pour with no head. Backsweetned and somewhat tart. But not what i expected at all. Definitely not a geueze. Sampled again in Japan. Crazy backsweetend. Aroma is the only good thing. Flavor is absurdly sweet apple juice. Really not that good.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
(Sample Date: 1/15/2011 Source:Other) Earthy sugary aroma. Very clear dark golden with little head. Very sweet and earthy with a light sourness. Fruity but not really a specific fruit. Finish is quite sweet and earthy.

Bottle courtesy of MaltDawg or Kinz or Butters. Thanks whoever you are? Pours a clear copper with nearly no head. Aroma of tart notes with a lot of herbal earthy fungus going on. The taste is tart up front with a earthy, sugar finish. Medium bodied.

mansquito (5078) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2011
New Beer Distributors, NY 12oz ($5.50): Pours a reddish color with a white head. Tart, fruity aroma. Taste is really sour, especially towards the finish. Pretty sweet, definitely sweeter than the last lambic that I had.Very pleasant mouthfeel contracts your mouth, because of the intense sour taste. I like it, but I guess I like all lambics...
