COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

quite a tasty lambic i must say...a typical gueze appearance...very hazy yellowish body with aerated, white head....aroma is huge in tart cherry, yeast, and leather....the flavor and palate will kick your ass! the sour nature of the beer will tear your tastebuds apart...very yeasty and musty flavor, but has added hints of grapes and citrus

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2006
12.7 fl oz bottle via trade with FlacoAlto - Thanks Sebastian! Pours amber/golden fairly clear with a whispy offwhite head that stays around a while. Lots of sediment as I got to the bottom of the bottle so i can’t give it a 5 for appearance.. Aroma is yeast, cheese, and some citrus fruit. Flavor is more on the fruity side. Some definite sourness there, some cherry and maybe even a touch of lemon, some apple there too... Sour but not nearly as much so as I would have guessed that it was going to be. Palate is very champagne like, spritzy with a great dry finish... My mouth watered from the sourness all through it but it watered for more when I got to the bottom of the glass... I can’t believe I waited this long to try the style.. It is quite tasty and unique and I can honestly say that I liked it.. Thanks Sebastian for opening the way for a new style for me...

JK (4861) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2006
One of the best aromas in beer; it includes yeast, and fruit. Flavor is a little sour but not as sour as some, there is an apple cider quality to this beer that makes it a very approachable gueuze. Flavor has citrus fruit, juniper, some malt, and more yeast. A cloudy orange beer with very little sediment. Great beer.

jgentgesdo (679) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Pours cloudy orange with medium white head. Nose is newly tanned leather, soured fruit (cherry and lemon), and horse manure. The flavor is very complex. It begins with a very earthy, musty note, progressing to a sour citrus flavor, with increasing sourness and the flavor trending towards cherry and mashed vegetables. No alcohol notes. Balanced towards dry. Complex mouthfeel. Ends with a sawdust/ashes aftertaste. So wierd that such a strange combination is so drinkable.

Suttree (5424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Orange, cloudy, with a thin head. Big lemon and white vinegar aroma, plus a hint of mustyness. Citrus dominates the flavor at first, with notes of stone, smoke and dust creeping in. Insanely drinkable. As it warms, more hints of smoke pop up. Really enjoyable.

Lubiere (10842) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
Bottle shared with Hunsell at Café Bar Le Duc, ’s Hertogenbosch. Light blond lambic with a creamy white head. Aroma of sour cream and chesse and horseblanket. Puckering sour lambic with aging cave dust and light sour cherries. Rich mix of sour and fruity notes, earthborne flavours from the cave. Excellent. And a steal at 3 euros in a bar. May 1, 2005.

guzzler67 (1550) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Cloudy, blood orange appearance with some flocculation. Earthy, yeasty, acidic aroma, blending green apples, grapes, leather and mustiness. Complex, shifting taste: tart, sour, grapefruit, bleu cheese just for starters. Reminiscent of a sparkling white wine. Very dry finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 6, 2005
Wispy head, poetic lacing on a pellucid zinc body. The nose is wet and woodsy with ripe cheese and light barnyard. The flavor is musty like damp plank and tart with fluid citric notes. Not overly complex yet finishes in a tobacco and tart fruit tail. Good but not quite world class.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2005
Bottle (from Bitter virtue, BBE 2023). Restrained aromas of musty cellars and cheese with gentler citrusy apple notes and an out of place thin lagery malt which quickly fades. Very gentle tartness which produces an easy going balance. Perhaps lacks the full complexities of some lambics or the more aggresive power but ends up as a great beer to drink rather than be broodily introspective over.

Dorwart (2424) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Huge off-white head of fine bubbles. Dense and creamy on top. Wonderful carbonation. Fruity aroma with sour apples, lemon, oak and maybe a hint of raspberry. Color is a dark apple cider. Sharp and sour flavor. But not a sourness that makes you pucker but the kind of sour that makes your mouth salivate non-stop. More apples, white grape, straw and a bit of lemon. Quite complex. Finish is slightly dry and leaves a long sourness in the mouth. Some pretty damn good stuff.
