Atom (1299) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle pours a slightly hazy golden/orange with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is slightly muted, sweet and tart, horse blanket and barn yard funk with some oak, mellow and inviting. Lively prickly carbonation, taste is bright, mellow funk, lots of acidity but not overwhelming with some oak, grapes and some white pepper with a dry crisp finish. Very nice!

Un nuage de mousse se pose sur un liquide doré et légèrement voilé. Le nez est très sulfurique, ce qui est typique au genre. Des traces de cuir et d’écurie sont également notables. En bouche, l’acidité est violente et permet aux saveurs fruitées rappelant un bon vin blanc ou un champagne d’exploser. Superbe bière, un grand classique dans le genre.

S: Sour berries, refreshing. A: Light amber, medium head that dissolves quickly to a ring around the rim. No lacing. T: Very tart, some funky earthy notes, some gooseberry on the side. Lingering sticky bitterness. O: Speaking as a beginner, this is one good lambic. Really solid, well balanced between the main tart part and some bitter/sweetness in the aftertaste.

seynie (138) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2014
Pale yellow with a foam top that lasts longer than with other gueuze. Indicative of the high carbonation that dominates to much. Not very sour, more earthen notes. Medium finish, moderately dry with some nuts

tricksta_p (901) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2014
Aroma of sour apples, wood, barnyard funk, white wine. Flavour is mild tart and just a little sweet. Quite dry, carbonated like champagne. Not the most aromatic or sour Gueuze, but very gentle, balanced and easy drinkable. I could not stop taking sips from this.

Welch ein wundervolles Erlebnis ! Auf der einen Seite kommt einer Säure, die wirklich heftig erscheint, dann aber am Scheitelpunkt abbricht und einem Früchte, ein wenig Brot, ein bisschen an Nüssen und Cerealien offenbart. Unglaublich ausgewogen und süffig. Ich hätte alleine locker eine 2 Liter - Pulle haben können.

McTapps (3601) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle from my European Summer Santa - many thanks to you! The lambic pours out in a hazy light dirty amber colour with low airy head and crisp body. Wonderful aroma of sour berries, very mild vinegar and green nuts. Wonderful balanced taste of a gentle but also intense sourness, unripe berries, gooseberries, light green nuts and light sour mash. High enjoyable and so refreshing and quaffable. Loved it.
