Bottle. From walt’s cellar. Shared with friends while telling stories and missing the oompa loompa. Hazed tan body with a minimal head. Sweaty aroma that promises a great tasting beer. Full body earthy sour with a berry note. Leather flavor keeps emerging. Sweaty leather, a beer for the bondage fans. Apparently ratman burned down an elementary school. Or i wasn’t listening well.

Popped the cork and expected massive funk based on the reviews here, but I am happy to report this is dominated mostly by candy apple, lemon, and mustard seed. It’s strong, but well-balanced. The appearance is also quite nice - cloudy orange-gold with a frothy off-white head. Taste is sour lemon, horseradish, acid, vinegar, and green apple. While I would not go for this style regularly - I can only take sours, Brett, etc. in small doses - it was great to try this out and find it’s not as funky, footy, and cheesy as I’ve sometimes read. So yeah, I’m highly picky about sour/funky beer, but this took me by surprise.

15cl. from bottle at Brassigaume 2013. Pours a hazy golden colour with a good white head. Aroma is sour. Tastes sour with a light bitter suttle sweet fruity end. Medium to low carbonation. I think it should be a little more cooler.

Very smooth geuze. Perhaps not the tastiest, but very smooth good drinkability indeed. From Premier Gourmet.

Svesse (7620) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2013
(Bottle, 2010/2011) Golden amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, spicy nose with grapefruit, green grapes, barnyard, hay, peaches, white bread and hints of clove. Fruity, tart taste with lemon, grapefruit, hay, unripe green grapes, white bread, apricots and a dry and tart finish with a soft and balanced acidity. Medium body, dry. Excellent gueuze: tasty, tart and well balanced. Lovely beer!

TyggaBrown (430) - NORWAY - OCT 14, 2013
Really nice and fruity and bitter and sweet and sour and acidic gueuze - frankly on of the best of these lambics I’ve tried. Great experience, and much more exciting than fx a bottle of champagne.

Muggus69 (1867) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2013
375mL bottle 2011-2012 vintage Hazy orange body with pretty much no head. Good funky aroma; vinous citrus - grapefruit, lemon rind, bitter orange marmalade - white vinegar, subtle oak influence, with a bit of pale cereal character, a faint hint of washed rind cheesy funk Highly effervescent carbonation, light on the body, with appreciable citric/acetic acidity. Citrus continues on the palate - more grapefruit & lemon rind, vinegar, cheesy, slightly horsey funk. Drops away to a somewhat abrupt watery finish, with a mild bitterness and bit of tannic grip. A very decent Lambic, perhaps not as complex/intense as others i’ve come across. Nice and funky nonetheless.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 Big thanks go to tectactoe on splitting this one. Super funky smell as you pop the cork. Huge funky, sour, lemon, citrus flavors here. Very tart. Awesome beer.

Maltador (63) - Paris, FRANCE - OCT 3, 2013
Very clean and soft for the style. Sweet, well balanced with nice lemon and oaky notes. Very refreshing stuff. A good start for the beginners. Draft version is fantastic, even better than the bottle one.

Great aroma. Lovely yellow gold with a fine head. I paired it with mac & cheese adding Pt. Reyes blue cheese to it. Fantastic together. Lemon and sharp bitterness from the barrel. Creamy and soft. Loved it.
