3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1994 on the label. The beer pours to a very hazy orange body with a really dense and creamy white head. The aroma is sour and funky with lots of horseblankets. It’s a pretty complex and nicely tart beer. The flavor is tart, acidic, horseblanket, and finishes nicely balanced. The palate is tart but unfortunately not overly so. A light gueuze.

Nearly a champagne. Super tart, delicious with no fruit juices to enhance the flavor. It’s not necessary as this gueuze stands on it’s own. Great representation of the style.

My first guezue. Color is pale yellow. Nice bubbles like champagne. However, taste is too sour for me. I may have got a not good one.

Had this shortly after the Cantillon Vigneronne and there was no comparison. Tart and not your typical gueuze and although interesting I wouldn’t buy again. Page 284 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and 335 out of 500 Classic Brews to go.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2007 Pours a dingy, slightly hazed honey color w/ a full spritzy froth that reduces to a thick canopy. The froth really clings and leaves a full, thick ring around the glass. Aroma of sour, underrippened fruit, cedar, and sea salt. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers complete w/ Champagne streamers. Flavors of citric acid, bitter peach pit, sea salt, cedar, oak, and grape stems. This is a very sour/trart brew that finshes dry w/ a moderate degree of margarita salt. Finish is bittered w/ strong peach pit. For some reason I keep coming back for another sip. It leaves my mouth watering despite the parching effect it has on my palate. Feels like it draws out all the water in my mouth like a preperation for a lingual mummification. Extremely sour but for some reason drinkable.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2007 Very floral hops in the nose. Very nice tart flavor. a pale yellow color with a little head. Had this again at a tasting last night and couldn’t help but think how good this would go down at a barbecue.

Light malty nose upon uncorking similar to Champale from my youth. Pours a medium gold with big sticky bubbles. little head. First taste is tart apple fuji or brayburn-like. A pleasant change for a daytime with meal beer in winter. This is probably pretty refreshing inssummer time too.

i think of this as more of a deicate beer to drink with a nice meal not as one I use to party. although who wouldnt party without a beer that tastes like a sour champange without all the bubbles, although carbonated its not rediculas like me nice beer, but with the granny smith taste here I wouldnt wanna venture to there fruit lambic that shit would be to whack im sure. fine thin lining head and pretty sexy aroma. a note worthy drink for a beer baller

Forget Miller, THIS is the champagne of beers. Seriously, though, it has a very similar appearance and feel to champagne. It pours a light amber color with small bubbles, much like the aforementioned drink. It has an earthy aroma and taste with a hint of sour apple and slightly acetic undertones. An excellent drink, but hardly a beer by my standards. I will have to try some more of these, as it is a whole style I have never experienced before.
