The color was a golden/orange. The head was creamy, off-white, and frothy. The aroma was similar to that of a flemish sour ale. It was tart and grapefruit. The flavor was definitely similar to a flemish sour ale. It was tart and very sour. The palate was thin/medium bodied and barely carbonated. The finish was sour/tart.

A light funky aroma wiht the horse blanket coming through at the back of the aroma. First and overriding thought is that this beer just tastes carbonated. It has some light funkiness and an okay sourness to it, but it really isnt anything amazing. A decent gueuze, but probably below average to me.

My first exposure to a gueze lambic and boy do i love it. Pours a murky light tan that looks bright amber when held to the light. The head is thick, light tan, creamy, sticky lace. The aroma is tart, sour, aged mellow cherries, spicy, smells like a flemish sour. The flavor is very tart and sour, sour cherries, very sharp biting flavor. The palate is sour and crisp. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Bottled. Pale w/ yeast clumps, fiizzy. Very interesting nose follow by a very off putting fucked up "who pissed beer into my" champagne flavor. Palate had some lingers of that cool foreign nose... but this beers really not for me.

vyvvy (5308) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 30, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2008 Pours orange with large dense light beige head. The aroma is tart, sour, grainy, funky, citric, tannin and with wild yeast - lots going on here. Light crisp body with light stinging sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with lots of graininess with a heavy sour kick, lots of yeast and intensified lemon aspects. The finish has some oak added in. There is a lot of crazy complexity going on and Im not sure how to really describe it, but I do know I give this beer an enthusiastic Thumbs Up . (8/3/8/3/17 - 3.9)
Rerate notes - Let this get much warmer than initial notes and the flavors opened up a lot with a cheese-like mustiness and horseblanket. The palate was much softer with gentle soft carbonation. The flavors from the initial notes were still there, but when blended with the new aspect it increases the complexity and enjoyability a lot. A great gueuze.

DarkMagus (499) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Clear golden-yellow color with a bubbly head that fades away quickly. Insanely funky, musty aroma with some woodiness, a light sourness, and a mysterious "bad but good" sort of thing. Flavors were mouthwateringly sour, musty, fruity, woody, and a bit cheesy. Highly carbonated and fizzy, but soft and champagne-like mouthfeel. Very, very dry finish. Great stuff, really enjoyable. I need more.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Clear yellow color, with a few fine bubbles. Aroma is complex, acidic.. almost like green apples. Incredible, funky flavors. Crisp, dry finish. Very full bodied. Outstanding.

Rich grainy/sour aroma. The balance of sour and grain is just right. Not too tart.
