dionysus (1454) - Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2009
Bottle pours a slightly hazy yellow-orange with a thin white head. The aroma is largely dominated by vinegar and lemon with slight undertones of cheese funk and barnyard. The entry is tart leading into indescriminate citrus, wood, and some green apple. The overall mouthfeel is relatively lush, with a decent amount of carbonation and a dry finish. The integration just isn’t quite there and could probably benefit from a little more age.

Dark amber colored body that is nearly copper with less light. A wispy white head leaves is mark. The nose is lightly sour with balsamic vinegar and some mellow barnyard. There is also some nice dandelion floral character. Wow! Mouth puckering sour at first with straight vinegar and a little bit of lemony citrus. The citrus really comes through in the finish. There is a little bit of wood and leather, but they are subtle. This is good for those that love their sour brews. Great for a hot summer night.

Hmmm, cheesy, bitter grape, lemon, carbonation. Smell is strong, makes me afraid to taste. Two hours drinking this one. I look forward to trying other different sour ales.

BMan1113VR (7884) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 16, 2009
Bottle marked best before 09-17. Pours with a large white head over a hazed golden body. Aroma of lemon, florals, horse blanket and red wine. Flavor is tart and woody with a bit of lactic acid and some light baby diaper elements. Lively and dry mouthfeel. Not horrible, but not a top tier gueuze either.

hombrepalo (1886) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2009
On tap @ Hopleaf. Pours a clear pale golden with a thin, wipsy white head. Tart, earthy, fruity aroma has good complexity and barnyard funk with decent sweet balance. Medium palate. Lightly sour with flavors of oak, green apple and green grapes. Tastey stuff just expected more from this Gueuze.

KyotoLefty (6905) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 11, 2009
Yellow-orange color, medium, airy head. Lemon aroma, slightly musty, not very complex. Medium to strong sourness in the mouth, lemon, a bit of lactic acid, and a good deal of sweetness. Pleasant, refreshing, and very easy to drink, though unchallenging and lacking in the complexity of the better gueuzes.

Dedollewaitor (14207) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2009
1993 Vintage @ DHVL. Slight unclear orange with a small creamy white head. Sweet, earthy and dusty nose. Tart, mellow and smooth taste. Fruit and barnyard. Very easy and quite drinkable. Surpsingly nice!

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Transparent tangerine, moderate foamy white head. Sweet lactic nose, also some acidic lemon and peach. Flavor is even sweeter, lots of citrus and warmer cidery fruit notes, a little acid. The brett is very soft here, just some minor barnyard. Moderate body, decent carbonation, but again soft given the lack of acidity. Very refreshing and an easy intro-gueuze, but nothing to return to if you like the style.

jzzbassman (1523) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear light orange with a thin white head. Tart aroma that starts great but ends with a bit of an unpleasant spoiled milk whang. Light sourness, with a lot of fruit and yeast.

03 bottle from mj, thanks man! Poured a lightly hazy golden-orange color with a bubbly, 1/4 inch white head that settled to a thin, tight ring. Tart, funky aroma with some earthy barnyard yeast (horse blanket), fruit (lemon, berry skin), and some light wood. Initially tart, acidic entry continues into a musty, earthy barnyard yeastiness with a nice fruity sourness (lemon, sour apple) that followed into a moderately dry finish with some hints of wood and a bit of berry skin that lingers on the palate. Moderate, lively carbonation that works well with the tart character of the beer. Overall, a very tart, crisp, easy-drinking lambic that makes up for a bit of a lack of nuance with simple enjoyment. Thanks again Mike.
