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

Pours bright gold into a tumbler. Head quickly dissipates but remains solid on the surface. Sour citrus and earth notes. Upfront sour candy with lasting lemon/lime.

Bottle. Pours like apple cider with champaign like head that disipates quickly. I will try others of this style, but for me it was something strange between a beer and a champaign that was not really the best of either. I didn’t care for the sour finish.

So I’m at the HW Open House, and I’m talking to this old man as we are both sipping on some run-of-the-mill belgian ale someone dumped in our glasses, and he says something along the lines of it reminding him of a lambic. Then he goes off on some kind of tangent (as folks of that age often do) and then mentions that he has a lambic in his trunk. "Which one?" I inquired. "Never ask someone my age the names of things," he replies. And with that, the old man vanishes, proptly returning, just as mysteriously as he left, with a bottle of this, from 1994! Pretty much all the ratebeer nerds drooled over this (yes...me, too). But as soon as the beer was gone, the old man was, too; the magic man that brought the cuvee rene. We searched high and low for him (well, about as well as people who have been drinking for a few hours could search), but he never returned. We came to the logical conclusion that he was some sort of beer wizard or spectre or some form of magical creature from a parallel universe, that had to go back to his homeworld to do battle with Demogorgon or some other such evil demon - but that beer sure was good.

Hazy golden color with a thin white head. Sweet but sour fruit aroma. Flavor of sour, and some light funk.

TPaliga (212) - Munster, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2006
Pours golden brown with offwhite head. Aroma is "horse blanket" earthy and sweet. Flavor is fruit and earth slightly mineral and apples. Bitter and dry sour finish.

shigadeyo (3148) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Bottle; tasted at River’s Bend - Thanks Matt! This was one of my first beers of this style. Hazy gold color with a decent amount of carbonation. The aroma is farily interesting - kind of damp, musty, and a bit earthy. Also has hints of apples. The flavor is pretty acidic, but reminds me of eating crabapples - crisp, tart, a bit sour, and over all quite refreshing because it doesn’t go too far with any of those attributes. I was actually really pleased with this beer and look forward to learning more about this style and trying more of them.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - AUG 12, 2006
Bottle, tasted while making some of my own brew with some pals. Very champagny with a sour and tart snap. very earthy and slightly fruity, finishes dry and leathery. Its good in a weird sort of way. Its great with funky cheeses.

Lubiere (10788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2006
Golden lambic with a thick dissipating white head, quite splendid. Light cherry and lemon in aroma, with barnyard and lactic notes, and quince. In mouth, lemon rinds with light barnyard qualities, dry and acid, but so refreshing. A great summer drink. Bottle from Bieropholie, 2005.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Interesting, and one of the better that I have tried from this style, but not being a fan to begin with it is hard for me to give this a true on true rating. Sour musty fruit aromas, with a bit of musky sweatiness and horse saddle. Some strong lemon acidity, with some funky acidity and vinous vinegar notes. Decent, but not something I could drink all by myself again.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2006
Hazy gold with a large, dense, white head. Musty barn funk yeast, acidic citrus sourness, and vinegared pine trees. Medium body, well carbonated. Very nice gueuze.
