Rando7 (766) - Iowa, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle pour gives clear light reddish-brown color with thin brief white head. Aroma mainly sour and funky. Taste sweet with cherries, apples, candi sugar blended with sour fruits. Palate fairly thick and carbonated. Finish brief and slightly sour. No alcohol taste to speak of and didnít taste any hops. The style is unique and that is probably the determining factor on whether you will enjoy this beer

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2006
Cloudy red/copper with a large frothy head. Aroma is quite sour, compost, and very sweet candy. The flavour is equally candy sweet/acid sour with some nice dark fruit and nut flavours too. Sour fruity finish and aftertaste.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2009
375ml bottle. Pours a deep golden/copper color, much darker than most Geuezes. A fluffy substantial head is formed and has good retention. Aroma shows floral and spicy elements, not much traditional funk though some esters are noticeable underneath. Candy, skittles, slight earthiness and pepper. Flavor is sweet and very candy like. Sugar is very noticeable and tastes more like sugar than sweet beer. This is very different. Lots of sweet candy flavor which is not something Iím used to. People who donít like beer would be all over this. I prefer more traditional lambics. At least I finally got to try this style.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2005
Light cloudy amber-orange color with small creamy ivory colored head. Nice fruity aroma with touches of raspberries, dried apricots, appletart, cider and brown sugar, also a woody unthertone. The taste is smooth and has a good balance. The taste is sweet and fruity and the acidity is well integrated. Again raspberrie in the taste, hints of sour apple, crumblecake, sweet rubarbe jam, some earthy tones and some wood. A fine faro with a refreshing caracter.

ttutony (737) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Amber in the glass. Aroma smells of sweet malt, fruit, wood, and a trace of a lambic funkiness. Pretty sweet on the palate but does have a nice acidic twang to cut some of the sweetness on the finish. I could see this being a good option for people who like gueuze but want something sweeter and less sour.
