A golden hue sets off the wonderful almost champagne like taste.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2008
Bottle. Nose is tart with mild musk, peach and orange notes. Pours with a huge frothy head atop a cloudy bright yellow-orange with active carbonation. Flavor is refreshingly sour, well balanced with the same fruits noted in the aroma. Very easy-drinking clean palate.

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a large foamy off white head. Aroma is tart, lemon, funk. Taste is tart, lemon, citrus, dry, acidic and a touch of sweetness. Decent sour, especially considering the price and abundant supply.

Guerde (1280) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 10, 2008
(bottle) Pours gold with a towering white head, that quickly dissipates. Aroma is not as sharp and tart as most gueuze’s I’ve had, with the funk being somewhat subdued. There’s also some sweetness present too. Taste is tart apple, lemon zest, apple cider vinegar, with a decent amount of sweetness. Finish is really dry and not that pleasant.

Skyview (5422) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2008
With all the sours I’ve tried with the MN Beer Drinking Group, I am surprised I have not tried this one yet. Sampled at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits Wednesday evening tasting, conducted by Badgerben. From a 750ml bottle pours a semi-hazy golden yellow sour brew with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and no ring. Aroma of barnyard funk, citrus and lemon zest, yeast, and a touch of hay. Taste is typical lambic sour, well-carbonated, with flavors of wheat, yeast, lemon zest and some cheddar cheese. Finish is semi-dry, tart with a quick metallic aftertaste of lemon peel and yeast.

750mL bottle, notched as 2004/2005? Pours a bright, clear orange color; solid white head with good retention and glistening, fine-bubbled lacing; attractive pour, definitely. The aroma certainly isn’t as forceful as some gueuzes, but it’s still quite pleasant: funky, lemony tartness, and oranges; toasty, soft wooden notes. Medium mouthfeel: resigned but pleasant sourness: funk, soft citrus, light amounts of acidity; definitely different from other types of gueuze that I’ve had, but tasty and quite enjoyable for what it is: intricate funk, mineral notes, and light wood presence; very drinkable and tasty stuff. Medium finish: citrus, toasty wood, and bread.

Aroma is sour or with maybe just a touch of the wild or "barnyard". Taste is acidic and dry, sour on back sides of tounge. Good beer, and works as a nice palate cleanser between lots of strongly flavored beers.

Thanks goes to rickgordon! Hazy light yellow/amber-ish with plenty of thick white head. Citrus/lemon aroma with more fruits and raisins. High on citrus taste and acidity, dry and spritzy mouthfeel.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Pour is a straw yellow color with a lasting bubbly off white head. Visible carbonation and a nose of vinegar tartness. Almost like sour ales. Light moutfeel with a taste of lambic wheat and champagne like effervescence. Refreshing and not overly complex, a very good beer even if the flavored lambics are a little more fun.

MrChopin (3999) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2008 Pours opaque golden-orange with large puffy white head. Aroma is grapefruit (though only slightly sour), must, leather, and significant sulfur with warmth. Flavor is more tart and a little sour with strong citrus notes, yeast, and metallic hints, lots of leather, and a little sulfur as well. Middle of the road for a lambic palate: not overly dry, some nice juice. Definitely not all class for a lambic, it’s still very high quality.
