Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle dated February 3rd, 2012. Hazy light gold pour with an inch or two of pillowy white head from a relatively slow pour. Funky aroma, some hay and barnyard brett-like funkiness. Earthy, with some light fruity esters like bananas and white grapes. Taste is quite tart, bordering on what I would call sour. A little bit of lemon flavor with a big white grape punch. Finish is extremely dry, fairly sour, with a long lactic aftertaste. I’m a sour/lambic newb, but this seems like a fairly good introduction. Not overly sour like some others I’ve tried (Petrus Aged Pale). I love the funk and dryness, not so much the lactic sourness, though in that regard it is not as bad as a Flanders Red. Seems to be stylistically accurate. Surprisingly good stuff from the brewery that makes those sugary ass fruit "lambics".

willisread (717) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a gold color with a slight haze and really nice soapy white head with tiny bubbles that lasts throughout mostly. Wonderful aromas of green apple, muscat, plum and cork. Slightly creamy with a great lively carbonation. Very crisp and dry on the palate with some nice fruit tartness and good oak flavor that comes through. Not overly sour but just right to be refreshing on a hot, humid night.

Wheat color with champagne bubbles. Sweet, kind of like half apple juice and half seltzer. Very tart, and I prefer Lindemans Raspberry lambic, which is one of the best beers ever.

electrotype (358) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
Une gueuze classique, c’est à dire bien sûrette et possédant un petit côté sauvage. Ce qui la différencie cependant, c’est qu’elle est douce... Elle n’est vraiment pas agressante et son sucre la rend très accessible. Elle possède en fait des notes vraiment très présentes de mandarines que j’ai rarement vues chez d’autres gueuzes. Pas un coup de coeur, mais tout de même une très bonne bière sûre!

drunk with cam on saturday 20/06/15 at zly casy. we walked from the river up there. tramlines had been worked on so the roads were closed off and nobody was around and it looked all post apocalyptic. we should get into the habit of buying some beers and doing some urban exploring cuz id love that shit tbh. anyway this was the first thing we had. pours a hazy gold and white head. funky earthy and sour apple aroma. taste is so tart with apples, lemon, bit of marmalade. tartness doms the fuck outta the whole thing really but im fine with that, fuckin delicious

golden, hazy, small quickly dissipating white foam; fruity aroma (peach, grapes and so), vinegar, some barnyard notes, maybe little bit woody?; medium+ sourness, lightly sweet and very slightly bitter; medium body, quite sticky feel, crisp and tart, long dry tartish finish; Overall: highly drinkable, very nice aroma, intense but not over-the-top taste

Flaska från belgianbeerfactory.com. Gyllengyl klar vätska utan skum. Doftar källartrapp och fruktigt. Syrlig och lite fruktig. Smaken ligger kvar en stund.

Iphonephan (4300) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2015
From a 375 ml bottle on a hot summer day. Pours clear, with lots of floating bits, and a thick white head. A bit of cider vinegar in the nose. Classic barnyard flavors with bandaid and white toast. Very refreshing beer and a bit underrated.
