While I am in the minority on here when I love a beer I find no reason to fault it in any way. I find no fault in this beer. I like the oak barrel smell and taste and the cider like fizzyness and flavor. Very complex with a nice sweet-tart(though not sour) taste. I taste apple and pear more than anything else. Better then 99.9 percent of beer and even "other" fizzy drinks such as that stuff some french guy named Don makes!

Winey (because of the oak casking), sour, fruity, and absolutely delicious! My favorite beer to date. Made with wild yeast strain in Belguim. Very different and almost unlike beer, but delicious.

The first thing I noticed with this beer was its beautiful frothy white head puffing up so wondrously upon my pouring it. The next thing I noticed was its awonderbly smelling astuteness of acuity of tartness of a smell. Then I took in its fullness of flavour, its complex but comforting palate of molasses, tart apples, with an oaky-like feel to it. Maybe this world is not so bad after all... This beer is better than your average beer. Earthy frothy goodness with a certain spritzed up lambicness to it. It makes me smile. = ) Its pleasing effervescence is one of its most appealing attributes. = )

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 In a Bios sniffer. Strong alky ale aroma. Metallic olfactory. Beautiful viscous brown orange clear appearance. The smell is no indicator of taste. Odd old mold citrus mild bitter bite on the upper back of the throat. Tingly fruit champagne palate. Farmyard lemon llime wet hay flavors. Finish is unique and appreciated. Dee Lish.

Light-orange in color, small white head that is both frothy and long lasting. Very bubbly, small streams of bubbles can be seen running up the side of the glass even 20 minutes after pouring. Very floral, tart, and fruity aroma, strong of sour cherries and oak. Flavor is tart, cherries again dominating. Oak/cork flavor is present in the middle, and the malt sweetness does wonders to balance the tartness in the finish. Very clean on the palate, and the carbonation is surprisingly light considering the bubbly appearance. Boy, this stuff is good. A fine sipping beer that is a desert in and of itself. I'm just getting into lambics; this style just pleases and facinates me to no end.

Very specific taste. Wonderfull aroma when you open the bottle. It’s a real pleasure to drink the whole bottle (75cl). Head is not long-lasting, but if this is the only negative point....

Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma is wheaty (banana) with a very sour note. Flavor starts sweet, goes very sour and finishes very dry. Very complex flavor. Hints of banana, green apple, yeast, raw dough. An excellent beer.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2007 At the amazing Le Cirio, Rue de la Bourse, Brussels. Dark amber in colour, slightly cloudy with a small off white head. A musty smell of apples stored in old barns. The taste was cidery, sweet and sour. A full, well-rounded feel in the mouth and a late dryness coming through. I loved this beer, though perhaps I was just overawed by the surroundings. 8.9.2007 Rerated under the alias of Foudroyante Gueuze. Bottle from Carrefour, Calais, France. Amber with a white head. Sour vinegar aroma and a gentle sweet and sour taste. Easy drinking gueuze. 6.4.8.4.16: 3.8

Dark amber colour, reminds me of some sherry generous oaked wines. Nice shades when you hold it to the light. Good head with a silky lace. Aroma is pungent and sour, barnyard, ripe fruits. something in it reminds of a blue cheese. Very complex, some fruits on it too, and champagne like. Tart flavor, mouth is dry and sour, some fruits, roasted almonds or hazelnuts, some barnyard too.
