Dull orange with thick white head. Aroma is funky, fruity, sour, spicy, and grassy. Holy crap, is this thin and sour! Vinegar soda, I tell you! Avoid at all costs, particularly at the $5/12.z oz I paid.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - APR 1, 2007
Bottle. Hazy orange-yellow in color. No head but sudsy. Earthy musty, with paint thinner scent. Fruity, tart taste. Very sour in a harsh lingering way. Quite dry and quick finish . . . champagne like.

Dedollewaitor (15536) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2007
Hazy orange with off white head. Sour vinous vinegar & earthy aroma and taste. Little fruity note - apples. High acidicity/carbonation. Sour rather fresh taste. Dry bitter end. Very nice gueze!

LinusStick (3234) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2007
My first of this type. Pours a hazy orange with no head. Aroma of citrus. Taste was sour with some fruitiness with heavy carbonation. This is the dryest beer I’ve had. You swallow it then feel like you’ve been sucking on a vacuum. No moisture left in your mouth. Interesting.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2014 Bottle, 6%. Good sour aroma with a hint of mold. Hazy copper colour. Big stable white head. Good sourness in the flavour, lemony and sharp. Quite clean flavour with a hint of fruity sweetness. Ends on a very dry note, reminding me of aspartam. Slightly high carbonation. 8 3 7 3 16

Bottle, 6%. Sweet aroma, mild earth, a little paper. Cloudy copper colour. Small white head. The flavour is citric and earthy. Has a little acidic bite in the finish, but apart from that harmless, even a bit watery. Quaffable enough, but not terribly flavourful. 6 3 6 3 15

Hazy orange and bubbly. Stable beige head. Classic gueuze aroma, cheese, feet, barnyard, almost manure in this one, all in a good way of course. Sour, very refreshing. A little lighter than some other gueuzes, and I think a little bit on the fizzy side. All in all, another classic, very good. Only slight dropoff from Girardin Black Label (and probably better for the price).

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 22, 2007
375mL bottle, BB Jan 16, 2005. Poured a clear medium golden with a whole bunch of rising carbonation and a short creamy white head. Aroma was quite fragrant with lemon, vinegar, and dusty old barn lofts... touches of grainy older oak and sliced green apples too.

Mellow lemon and vinegar at the tip of the tongue build nicely into a sour (but not too much so) middle... dusty lemon and funky light fruit-based yeast fill out the flavor.. short-to-medium lenghth moderately sour finish.. dry and uber refreshing. Wonderful drink!

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2010 Bottled at the Belgian Embassy in Oslo. (37,5cl corked bottle, served by the brewer.) It pours almost clear, with the expected excuse for a white head. It has a dryish aroma with apples, sourness and barnyard. The flavor is very nice, with apples, sourness and notes of barnyard. Astringent, medium mouthfeel and a long sour finish. A lovely brew, well suited to make a break in an else sweet-flavored evening. Rating: 7-3-8-4-15-3.7. 070103

Bottle, 375ml. An unclear, golden beer with some clouds. A small, off-white head sits on top. Barnyard, apples and a lemony touch on the nose. Funky flavor with barnyard, leather notes and citrus. Apples and other fruits too. Medium, dry and effervescent. Citrusy, barnyard finish. A really pleasant one, even though it’s not among the very best. As it’s available in Norway, I drink this one rather frequently, so it’s definitely not bad. 101009

mabjork (691) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2007
ottled. Hazy golden in colour. Minor white head. The aroma is fruity and sour. You get hints of strawbery! and rubarb! The flavour is dry and fruity... just like a cider... Apples, strawberries and rubarbs... Mmm... a dry aftertaste as well.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2007
375ml bottle. Sour aroma, with oak, mahagony, lemon, black pepper, nuts, bacon. Outstanding complexity. Very nice pour for a lambic, with a tight foamy head that sticks around. Flavor is gentle sourness, kind of akin to a flemish sour or oud bruin but a bit more acidic. Oak and cherry shine here, with a touch of black pepper. Good palate, very drinkable, just a tad thin up front. Very nice gueuze, with a very soft body that is much different from their kriek, which I found to be intensely minerally.
