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

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2005
750 mL, (1994 version, sampled May 2005): great cork removal, lively pop!…begins extraordinarily clear, ivory bubbles diminish, but leave a nice ring and thin film on top. Sour, bitter-sweet strawberry aroma with green grape skins, Granny Smith apple flesh, horse blanket, and sweet iron. Wonderfully carbonated, soft fizzy palate with a sharp, bitter, iron flavour. Moves towards astringent with the addition of the yeast, and becomes increasingly cloudy and increasingly beautiful. Here’s where it shines; the complex flavours unite: fresh (though bitter) grass, acidic lemon, blood, and loads of well developed Brett, what a beer; unbelievable that it is 10+ years old.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Bottle from Pailhead. ’94 or ’97??? Yellow orange color. Supremely sour aroma with all sorts of good lambic aromas going on, barn and funk. Tart and astringent. Medium bodied and very drying. Very nice for the Lindemans that I have experienced.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Bottle: Golden, hazy, bits of sediment float about, large white foamy head, attractive lacing, beaucoup carbonation. Tart aroma, slightly wheaty. Soft tartness on the tongue, much less than other examples. Not terribly dry, or least takes a while to feel so. Simple, yet good. Only a slight wood character.   Great body, good mouthfeel. I’d love to try an aged version of this one.

Pailhead (4622) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Bottle: Label states 1994 but is written over in black marker with 1997. Real tart and sour fruit aroma with some wood and mild vinegar. Pours a cloudy orangish-yellow with a white head that lasts a minute or so. Some sediment in the form of some black floaties. Tart and sour with some light wood in the background and light vinegar. Very tart and woody finish.

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2005
OK. I admit that I found this really disconcerting. Nose was dry and sour but not stinky. Looked cloudy like a lambic but taste was sour, tart, dry, but not pissy, skunky, or stinky. Looked like a lambic, but tasted like a light Belgian sour. I could drink this.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 Couleur pêche pâle, légèrement dorée, coiffée d’une mousse blanche crémeuse. Extrême dégagement gazeux au versage. Curieusement, les arômes sont remplis de houblon vert d’une fraîcheur atypique pour le style. Je sens aussi une composante très lactique. La texture et la douce acidité ne peuvent m’empêcher de penser au yogourt nature. L’acide lactique et citronné se fait rapidement oublié en présence des biscuits Graham trempé dans le miel et les pommes vertes. Extrêmement bien fait et complexe, l’illusion à son meilleure. Lorsque l’on croit être envahi par l’acidité, un soupçon de sucre vient nous surprendre et vice versa. Un breuvage très intéressant qui mérite sans aucun doute d’être revisité fréquemment. Dégusté en compagnie de Nicholas au Hop Devil, Gent, voyage Europe 2005

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 18, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2005 Another crazy Belgian beer. This one is sour and really pushes the limits. Crisp flavors but cloudy appearence. Really interesting stuff. Try it for an adventure.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2005
Available in the 75cl bottle, but served in a Hoegaarden-type generic (shaker?) glass at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse in Pittsburgh, PA. Champagne-like aroma and mouthfeel. Flavor is a mix of sweet sparkling white wine and champagne-like. Very nice. A tremendous beer.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 16, 2005
Slightly cloudy orange. Next to no head. Nose is dominated by tart peach. Some spicy funkiness. I want to dive right in. It is acidic and sweet, peaches are in there along wit oak, cherries, orange and old hops. Yum. I’ll definetly be buying this one again soon!

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - APR 4, 2005
(on bottle) Being a beginner on geuzes, this in my first really good drink of the type. Very mellow and still fresh and spankling. Got honey, lavender and apple peel in the sents, more malt and citrus in the taste and a finish of peach and rasberries.
