Corked bottle. Oak, dust, lemon and peach in the aroma. Sour, oaky flavor with grapefruit, lemon and pineapple. Good, sour, fairly complex geuze.

From notes. First reviewed 9/28/2011. Poured from a 350 mL bottle into a tulip. Thanks to bauermj for bringing this over. My pour is a very hazy pale yellow color with a thin white head. The head remains mostly an island with a few spots of lace. The aroma is tart and acidic. A nice level of barnyard funk as well. Some soft malt presence in the back. Tart lemon, a bit of grainy malt, and lots of pleasant sour flavors dominate the flavor. The finish has a good level of funk in it. The mouthfeel is definitely acidic. Light to medium body, light bubbly carbonation. Lightly puckering. Overall, this is a solid gueuze.

Boutip (5037) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear bright golden color lambic with a super huge foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of light sour notes with light funky ester. Taste is also a mix between some sour and tart notes with light acidic undertones and some light funky ester. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well put together lambic mix except it may be a bit too balanced toward sour and acidic notes for my liking. I would have preferred more green apple and barnyard notes personally.

2010 bottle, pours a gorgeous almost glowing golden liquid under pale and lacy white head with low retention. Smells awesomely gueuze-y: lots of floral funk and meaty aromas with hints of sun-baked hay. Tastes very tame, somewhat peppery up front with undertones of the meatiness. Missing the bite that the Cantillon Classic has at the end which pervades over the whole mouth. This is definitely a little tamer... but oh so delicious. Mouthfeel is slightly dry and initially effervescent. Overall it’s definitely one of the better regular gueuzes I’ve had; I wish I had cases of the stuff.

Best before 10/02/2021 - Poured into some Hill Farmstead stemware. Slightly hazy golden yellow body with thin white head on top. Earthy, sour, acidity on the nose. Wet hay and orange. Really nice nose on this. Taste is soured oranges, earthy malts and a touch of dry brett. Really nice blend between sour acidity and brett funk. Palate is perfect. Balanced acidity, good carbonation, slightly slick. Overall, this was a really nice surprise and an excellent gueuze. Right up there with Cantillon and Drie. Flavor is more on the Cantillon side of things, but there is definitely some brett funk lingering in there. I’ll definitely need to pick up a few more of these. Very excited to see how they age.

375 mL bottle from Gianni. I love gueuze, so I’m hoping this one is pretty good. Slightly hazy, golden color, small foamy head, lots of little bubbles in this one. Other than the slight haze this has all the looks of a gueuze to me. The aroma is really fruity, some graininess, some tartness, and a touch acidic. Taste is also fruitier and really enjoyable. Peach, lemon, some yogurt, and a tart finish. Lighter bodied, and not as acidic as cantillon and 3F. Really good, but not quite on the same level as other big gueuzes.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2012 Picked this up at Hill Farmstead Brewery. Poured into a Flute glass. The bottle was at cellar temp so around 55.

A - Pouring carefully, I still got a 5-finger head with a nice mix of bubbles that quickly resided. This is a pale yellow color almost like a lemonhead candy with a lot of carbonation.

S - Immensely tart scent with some light honeysuckle, floral and leafy scents.

T - Excellent first taste upon hitting the tongue. Up front tart taste with a great earthy and dirt like taste and a lot of wood. On the back of the tongue, tongue tingling from a very sour taste. Overall, nicely balanced.

M - 90% carbonation on a mouth swish. Light bodied and very very dry. My mouth is left very dry and the aftertaste doesn’t linger at all. It’s gone pretty fast.

O - Very well balanced beer. Well done and very tasty.

2012 vintage update. Enjoyed from a 37CL bottle from hunger mountain. Much sweeter and more smooth and refined than before. Still an excellent Gueuze.

This poured a darker golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was acidic green apples, some barnyard funk, and some spicey yeastyness. Flavor was fairly tart but not overwhelming, a good bit of grainy lemony notes and some light funk. Decent.

Had this at Ratebeer’s Horny Devil Pittsburgh Winter Tasting 2012. Big thanks to James for this gem. Cloudy orange yellow. Very sweet tart purfumy aroma. Like many real lambics – simply dee-lish. Good sour palate that is full of co2 impact, lovely. Really nice James! This Horny Devil rocks. When I think about limbic, I think about beers like this. Very good overall beer experience!
