My first positive experience with a lambic. Pours golden with a tart aroma. Somewhat sour - but for me it seems more tart than sour. A really good lambic that can be a nice gateway beer into the sour treasures.

Zekada (357) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2015
Draft at Mikkeller & Friends. Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma is acidic, some grapes and malts. Taste is acidic, sour grapes, some bread and malts. Palate is thin and very drinkable, yet tasteful. Really nice beer, tasteful and sour yet pleasant.

brnandersen (2239) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2015
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Stefansgade. Clear, deep golden colour with a dense, white head. Sweet barnyard aroma with bretts, wood and lemons. Taste is sour. Medium body with a slick texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes dry and tart with lemons. Nice, refreshing easily accessible Gueuze.

wedgie9 (2490) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2015
From notes. Tasted in December 2012 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Louisville Beer Store during Zwanze Day 2012. Pours hazy light orange with a thick white head that leaves average lace. The nose is tart and sour lemon with a touch of white wine vinegar, and a bit more bread malt than I am used to in most sours. The flavor is not super sour, but has some nice tartness and funk, with lemon peel and the malt a bit more balanced than on the nose. The body is medium and tannic with average carbonation and along tart and lightly malty bitter finish.

floydian1 (1101) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 7, 2015
375ml bottle (label states 5,3% ABV). Clear orange pour with a transient loose white head that reduces to a firm collar. Nose offers fresh apples, light barnyard, oranges, citrus, light malts and musty sweaty socks. Palate is tart light and refreshing with funky citric moderately sour flavours that do not grate and no bitterness. This is a fine gueuze.

VDuquerroux (490) - Airvault, FRANCE - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle, 375mL. 5.3% abv. A yellow opaque beer with brown hues ; big creamy white head ; good retention ; beautiful lacing. Smoky aroma, wood, earth, barnyard. Light sweet, medium to heavy sour waves, nice balance between dry and windy. Medium body and texture, good carbonation nearly fizzy, sour lasting welcoming finish. Overall, delicious, good balance between dry, wet wind : oasis landscape.

Anova167 (303) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Pale orange pour with a fizzy head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is ruined by the choice of a green bottle as it is totally skunked with a hint of candied stone fruit. The flavor is still there with that fruit and funk making for a nice tart sour beer.

NikkTwist (1814) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2014 Draft at Khyber Pass. Poured a hazy orangish copper with only a slight white ring. In balance feels overly sweet and floral. Need to try again.
