Luvystypotables (1061) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2015
Mildly sour aroma of fermented fruit, great looking clear caramel colour with a lasting white well laced head. Crisp clean taste of champagne and sour fruit, full bodied with a dry champagne finish.

bottle shared at a ’bzart tasting’ with a few colleagues. poured a murky yellow colour with a white head, citrus, malts, funky acid, barnyard, lemon peel, strong note of brett, quite tart in the finish, green apples, long dry finish. way to overpriced for the quality you get. like the whole serie eventually.

[ bottle ][ ½ of 37.5cl ][ Tasting ][ $30 ][ Tulip ][ 03.29.15 ]
hazy gold, puffy white head lasts. doughy crust nose, light lemon brett, tons of crust. Ultra fruit brett up front, light petal and even floral in bitterness. Drying floral aspects in creamy yeast finish. Contrast high, dairy offsetting, cereal grain sweetness everywhere.

cpetrone84 (1705) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Pour is a light yellowish orange with lots of tight white head. Nose has some nice funk, mushroom and some cheese rind, lots of malt backbone, faint citric touch. Flavor has more musk and malt, not quite as funk driven. Citric notes in the finish. Strong carb, lighter body slightly grain feel.

mcberko (9344) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma is wonderfully funky, with loads of lovely barnyard funk - man, everything about a gueuze I like. Flavour is huge on barnyard funk, light champagne yeast that gets more pronounced towards the end. Highly carbonated but not too much so, with a bone dry finish. Wonderfully complex, though slightly better aromatics than flavour. Excellent stuff.

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Musty and bubbly, this Lambic shares floral fruitiness amidst its prevalent wilderness, creating a classy beverage despite the funk.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty golden.
-The intensity of the aroma is surprising at first.
-Complexity levels aren’t as high as the best Lambics out there (and this is priced like one of the best out there, so...)
-Carbonation is accordingly spritzy.
-This is very expensive compared to other similar-level Lambics.

Bottle.

MrHangover (3225) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle @ New Years Tasting. Pours a clear golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is very strong, funky, tarty, loads of Brett. Flavor is quite sweet for a gueuze, as for how I know them. Slight fruityness detected here, not much else. High level of carbonation, dry moutfheel. Decent gueuze.

EddyBeer1 (1045) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2015
Blonde claire, effervescence moyenne, col blanc mousseux tombe vite. Boisée, légèrement acide, présence de pomme. Un lambic à la méthode champenoise qui donne beaucoup de plaisir.
