TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2011
750 ml bottle shared at Kan’s. Thanks! Pours a murky golden orange pour, a frothy bright white head, glowing and well hazed with a good ring, laces ok. Aromas are fresh citrusy oranges, lemons, and vibrant pineapple. Some melon, bread, and dough. Some dry florals are mellow, soft cheese, yogurt. Some light brettiness, some wet oak. Young, gentle funk compliments a vibrant fruity element. Initial is lighter bodied preaching sour lemons and grapefruit, pineapples, and grass. Bread, with soft cheese and yogurt, a touch of a sharp cheesiness cuts in, faint metal, growing citrus and moderate sour fruit element. It’s sour, but not acidic, with a good fruity explosion. I dig this, a big fruity sour element, not moving into acidic instead throwing grapefruit, melons, lemons, and good growing sourness, fruit, with a touch of mango, more pineapple really asserts itself. Really nice, some prickly carbonation, jabs of acidity, growing sourness. Mmmmmm. Funk is light, soft, gentle, with just a touch of oak. Some soft cheese and yogurt, playing second fiddle to the fruity sourness for sure. Really nice, wins me over.

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2011
Bottled. Hazy golden, rich head. Enormous cobweb and barnyard aroma. Citric and lemony. Dry and soft with medium body. Drie Fonteinen-like relaxed softness, blanced citric acidity. Superbly drinkabkle and vastin character.

thebeertourist (4785) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle at Den Zytholoog, Adegem. Cloudy, deep golden with a smallish head. Strong lemony lambik nose, hints of talc and wood. Quite acidic flavours with lemony and woody dryness. Well-carbonated. The chalkiness of the Girardin shines through, as does the sharp lemony Cantillon lambik. A masterpiece is born.

Miksu (4947) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2011
0.375 l bottle at Tuulensuu, Tampere. Hazy deep golden color. Sharp acidic aroma with lemon, grapefruit, sulfur and citrus pith. The taste is also acidic but smoother than aroma. Lots of lemon and grapefruit with hint of mustard. Nice gueuze of its own kind.

jtclockwork (8241) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2011 Bottle. Pours sparkling orange. Quickly dissipating white head. Nose and taste of tart lemon, oak and funk. Lightly buttery in a good way. Medium body. Moderate tartness. Simple yet elegant. Well balanced. Body a little on the light side. Good carbonation.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2011
Bottled 750ml (PBF, vintage 2011)
Hazy orange color, small white head. Tart fruity Cantillon-like aroma. Medium-bodied. Tart, leathery and fruity flavor. Very good drinkability. Lingering tartness in the aftertaste. I think Cantillon dominates in this blend. Super.

Bottled (thanks Chriso). Hazy orange colour, small head. Quite lively. Aroma is tart wood, some fruits, mild earth as well as some mild berries as well. Flavour is tart wood, some earth, mild sour fruits as well as some earthyness. Pleasantly balanced.

suprchunk (2178) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Pours a cloudy orange-straw color. Larger than normal head on a gueuze. Dies down pretty quickly and leaves a little bit of lacing. Fruity aroma, peppery, leather, and a bit of sourness. No real funk, just a slight bit of earthiness. Big sour taste right up front. Very tart and a very sour mouthfeel. Very good beer for this guy’s first time out. Can’t wait to see how they age, and what he’ll have in store for us next.

lusikka (6207) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2011
750 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. BBE 11/12/2020.
Pours a hazy, yellowish copper colour with a small white head on the edges. Aroma of sour, tart apples, some vinegar and fresh lemons. Flavour of sour apples, clove, lemon, lime and oak. Medium bodied with a thick mouthfeel and a lovely sour, dry, tart, citrusy finish with a fair amount of acidity. Lively carbonation. Pleasant gueuze which will probably be even better after a few years.

laiti (5631) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2011 75 cl bottle @ Tuulensuu, BBE 11/12/2020
Started coming spontaneously out of the bottle in form of a foam. Sour and fruity aroma with some fruity peachness. Taste is sour with a hint of lactacic acid like in the Tilquin Lambic Blend. An average gueuze.
