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 (10562) - 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 (8736) - 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.

MrHangover (3569) - 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 (1058) - 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.

kermis (8062) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle shared at The Hague New Year Whale Session as post KBBS palate cleanser. Pours hazy light orange with a massive but short lived off white head. Aroma of tart citrus, big barnyard funk, dank cellar, cobwebs. Flavour is over moderate acidic. Medium bodied with his carbonation.

JefVerstraete (2297) - Ghent, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle from De Hopduvel. Yellow colour, white foam. A lot of carbonation. Dry and rather thin beer. Aroma of citrus and green apples. Bit out of balance but still refreshing and good.

nuplastikk (5253) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle shared at GTMW ticket wait out line 2014. Big lemon-orange brett aroma. Thin yellow-orange water body. A little thin bodied. Odd Pils-esque butter undertones. Mellow pear apricot nuances. OK.

Bottle shared by friends. Damn god… got to love that poopy diaper smell. NOT. Some brettanomyces, and wet shoe leather.

Unfortunately it tastes just like it smells. Mouthfeel is over carbonated and fizzy. I just don’t think I will ever enjoy any Lambic unless it has some fruit or is real old. And maybe not even then… What really makes me sad is how much was spent on this bottle. $50.00 U.S. Screw that.
