750ml bottle courtesy of Styles. Pours hazy orange with a fluffy white head that fades quickly. Aroma is barnyard funk with a little lemon in the background. Body is light & crisp. Flavor is sharply sour, with notes of citrus in a nice clean finish. Really enjoyed this

500 mL bottle from 7th Sun Brewing tap room. Pours a hazy yellow with a frothy white head that quickly becomes tame. Nose is prickly lemon, akin to a berliner, with some vinegar, funk, hint of barnyard, and some peppery yeast. Flavor is similar- lemon, vinegar, funk, and prickly citrus followed by more funk. Nice gueuze overall. Light to medium in body with a funky citrusy finish.

Syzzer (628) - Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2011 Very sour and lemon intro with tart punch. Hazy light orange color with frothy white head. Interesting yeast close but the sourness lingers

TheEpeeist (3663) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2011
My rating #2300! Apple juice brown with fuzzy white froth that rouses with a swirl. Nose is sourdough bread, citrus pith, foot funk, white pepper, leather and marjoram. Sharp, tart and juicy with a sparkle. Taste is lime, leather and dried apricot. Intense and complex, just pushing my boundaries for sour and funk.

TheBeerGod (5754) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Translucent amber with a moderate foamy blond head. Aroma is mouthwatering! Sour fruit, leather, sweat, lemon, damp earth, light cat urine and funky yeast make up the bulk of the aroma. Taste is a sledgehammer blow of sour fruit, lemon juice and funky yeast followed by repeated whacks of sweat, moist leather, damp earth and grains. Body is light, effervescent, acidic and dry with an extreme lingering sourness. Finishes with more sour fruit notes, big, funky yeast, lemon juice, sweat, light salt notes, leather, earthiness and grains. Damn tasty!

Marsiblursi (3070) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2011
(Bottle) Pours light hazy golden with an off-white head. The aroma holds more lacto than brett – notes of green apples, cider, grapefruits, lemon, juniper, tart white wine, fresh broken wood, wet leather and light sour milk alongside undertones of light barnyard/horse blanket and mould. The nose is really yummy but not super complex. Some wood as well. A touch of flowers, dry cracker-like malt, mint and sulfur. The flavor is dry and medium to heavily acidic. Tones of citrus, super dry apple cider, brett, cracker like malt and light wood. Maybe a bit milky. The mouthfeel is tart a fairly tight with a light to medium carbonation. Finishes with aggressive citrus and mild wheat alongside puke-like sensation. Light to medium bodied.

Pours a slightly hazy deep gold. Aroma of barnyard funk, lemons, sharp acidic citrus and some slight grain. Wonderful citrus, funkiness and tart fruitiness. Great complexity and balance. Leaves a very dry finish and mouth watering for more. Awesome beer.

MartinT (8821) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Citrus fruit imbued with lactic suggestions pierce this Gueuze’s attic dustiness, as fine cereals ride an ebullient effervescence.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A white head of foam floats atop the hazy golden amber.
-This was much more elegant than the Gueuze which preceded it, the HORAL Mega-Blend.
-The mouthfeel was as tight as the best Drie Fonteinens. Damn, this is an impressive beginning!
-Sourness is about as intense as Drie Fonteinen as well. Even if the flavor profile is as classy and cohesive as they come, the pungency of the sourness makes this a sipper (this is much more intense than a Boon Oude Gueuze, for example, which I consider to be beautifully drinkable).

Bottle. Pale hazy yellow pour with good white head. Aroma is nice and tart, quite lemony, tart but not funky, slightly fruity. Taste is very tart, nice lemony twang, again light farmyard/funk notes but actually quite balanced. The acidity is actually quite mellow and refreshing. Palate is nice and tart, well carbed and finishes dry. Delicious gueuze.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Pours a slightly cloudy golden yellow color with a half finger white head that immediately fades without any lacing. Musty, funky aroma with some nice earthy barnyard/horsey character, oak and subtle acidity. Some earthy oak with hints of wet hay, lactic funk and faint citrus. Medium bodied with a tart, puckering mouthfeel and a decent amount of sour funk and acidity. Lingering lactic funk with some sharp citrus acidity but it never becomes too harsh. Hints of oak, lemon/citrus peel and lingering acetic vinegar. A bit young at this stage but still delicate and flavorful.
