3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange with two fingers high dirt white head that fizzles out pretty fast and leaves some strokes of foam on the glass.
Lots of funky horse/barnyard etc. on the nose with a quite sharp note of paint but also lemons, orangesezt and apples.
Taste is pretty sour and puckering with lemon and apples and a slight caramel note creeping in the aftertaste. This is straight forward sour stuff. Classic. But also here some paint or chemicals.
Medium to bigger body with lively mushy carbonation.
Tasty and very sour, but a little one dimensional perhaps?

hazy orange with a sticky white head, lots of lace. funky nose; citrus, cobwebs, leather, baryard, citrus. Quite balanced flavor that is nicely tart and sour without being too acidic. Will buy more bottles.

Turdferguson shard a bit of this with me. Bright hazy lemon rind yellow pour with two fingers of sticky white head. Nose was nice and funky with lots of lemon zest and some hay. Dry zesty flavor with a nice acidity and bacterial funk. Me gusta.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
A nice gueuze, with a nice sourness and a little barrel funk, and lightly fruity malts. One drawback is that the finish tended toward feeling a bit empty, as if the malts just disappeared, leaving it very dry and thin. Amber, almost tea-like color, fizzy, not much head.

375ml Bottle: Tart aroma of lambic, gueze, light barnyard, fruit, leather, and wood. Poured amber/orange in color with a small, creamy, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small and medium-sized particles throughout. Flavor is heavily tart and medium sweet. Tastes of lambic, wood, leather, light band-aid, light funk, tart fruit, and deliciousness. Medium body. Mouth-puckering, then dry texture. Lively carbonation. Heavily tart, medium sweet, tart fruit, lambic, wood, gueze, slight funk, finish is dry. Yum!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Binny’s. First off, I don’t get why people always say that there is a "vinegar" taste in gueuze, because it’s not vinegar. Nothing like it. Anyway, onto my rate. Pours an attractive deep gold with orange. Head is very persistent. On the nose, lots of funk, lemon zest, faint bubblegum, yoghurt, straight lactic acid and horseblanket. Pretty sharp. On taste, it is markedly bitter and intensely sour. Deep layered acidity. Lots of sharpnes, but never turning acetic. Reminds a lot of the Cantillon or Hannssens Gueuze. Crazy sour and pretty remarkable stuff. The bitterness is a touch much, though. Very good beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy ororange coloured beer, just a lace as head. Totally not my style. Sour, spices, need more carbonation. I can imagine some people like this, bit for me its no good.

Bottle at Local Option, Chicago. October 22, 2011.
Hazy light amber with a medium white head. Nice funky aroma with citrus, grape, vinegar and some oak. The taste was dry and tart, really good and refreshing. I look forward to drink this beer again.
