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

I’m surprised I haven’t rated this one yet. Had from a bottle (as pictured). Pours with a good size head and ample lacing. Aroma of fruit, both sweet and sour.

Taste is phenomenal. Nice amount of carbonation - not too much, not too little. The acidity is perfect, and tartness lingers afterwards. Smokey, tart finish. Highly recommended.

straw color nice white head, thick & small. Light funky aroma, some sugars some leathers fairly light. Well coated palate nicely carbonated. Sour tart cherries & cranberries, and some other fruits. A dry leather and some light wood w/ a dry finish. Decent.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2006
Pours cloudy orange with a very fizzy look to it resulting in poor retention of the white head. Light sour aroma, oranges and rotting wood mostly. Very acidic sour flavour, slightly yeasty with more orange too. Quick tart finish.

Tmoney99 (11686) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured hazy brown color with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate complex fruity and citrus aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sour fruity flavor with a medium sour finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

Fragrant aromas hit my nose as soon as the cork pops. Initial skunk and horseblanket hit me first. I’m intigued and intimidated by this. This is quite a flavorful ale, green apples, onion, leather, cobwebs, tobacco, blood/iron, tart lemon...the complexity is well above average. I’m not a real experienced Gueuze driker but I’m sure to try many more of this kind. This is quite drinkable and refreshing, to my suprise. A bone dry finish.

The Cuvée René was picked up in a 750 ml. green bomber, with gold neck foil, and a crown cap, which when popped was underlain by a cork. After opening, the Gueuze Lambic was poured into a flute glass, where it looked deep golden, with a two finger head fed by Champagne like constant carbonation. Taking a whiff yielded a smell with a mixture of sweet and sour elements, but little of the farmhouse smells like leather or sweat found in other Gueuze Lambics. I could also detect a marigold like floral hop presence. The sip confirmed what the nose had revealed. This was quite mild for an unflavored Lambic. There was a lot of sourness of course, but it was a clean and crisp sourness like a lemon juice poured into a regular beer. Not a lot of funkiness in this one at all. The beer was crisp and light in the mouth, and was very easy to gobble down. Drier than the lunar seas, this would be a good introduction into unblended Lambics for an uninitiated drinker, but if you are looking for a ton of flavors go for something else (e.g., Cantillon) instead.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2006
Hazy pale yellow with a quite decent white head. Rubbery, sour-ish, horseblanket aroma with some notes of green apples. Sour, citric, refreshing flavour. Yeasty as well. Some notes of syrup. Grapefruit acidity in finish.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2006
From 750. Hazy orange yellow pour with white head. Nose has the lambic sour, light fruits, crab apple, wild yeasts and something like celery. Flavor is more of the lambic sour and light fruits, with a tart finish. Carbonation is high.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - SEP 9, 2006
750 with gputty. Unclear gold with a big, foamy white head. Nose - sourish, fruity, Granny Smith apples, some woody notes. Very drinkable, not as sour as many others. Apple and some mustiness in the flavor. Dry, clean, lightly tart finish. Excellent.
