I havenít had too many Lambics so I didnít know what to expect. Citrusy and lasting sourness. Copper color. No bitterness. Effervescent. Interestingly tastes like a few beers that Iíve made unintentionally.

superspak (2481) - Michigan, USA - JUL 31, 2014
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 7/18/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of sour green apple, lemon, white grape, wet hay, straw, grass, oak, leather, musty funk, white vinegar, wheat, light pepper, and yeast/oaky earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky/lactic yeast, oak, and light malt notes; with good strength. Taste of tart green apple, lemon, white grape, wet hay, straw, grass, leather, oak, musty funk, white vinegar, wheat, light pepper, and yeast/oak earthiness. Fair amount of earthy/fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of green apple, lemon, white grape, wet hay, straw, leather, oak, musty funk, white vinegar, wheat, and oak/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/funky/lactic yeast, oak, and light malt flavors; with a great malt/acidity balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, dry, and fairly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice gueuze style. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/funky/lactic yeast, oak, and light malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink with the balanced acidity. A very enjoyable offering.

DerWeg (1487) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Cloudy gold with lacy white head. Citric acidic smell with some cellar, this plays into the taste with very citric-acetic sour and wood and stone cellar and some pale fruit, not much but sharp sourness and Iíd like more complexity but its a respectable drain cleaner for the human digestion. Yeah gueuze are rarely my thing, and I think Iím getting a food sensitivity headache... great.

Mora2000 (5569) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottled July 18, 2012, drank July 27, 2014. Hazy orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some light funk as well as some orange and lemon character. The flavor is similar. I get some sour lemon and orange notes, as well as some light sugary sweetness. There is also a hint of funk. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Prufrockstar (834) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Draft at uber. Murky light amber pour with ring of white head. Aroma: burnt rubber; wasabi/horseradish (!); funky, lactic, citric. Bubblegum and horseradish, thatís what I get most of all, to which I can only say "wtf?" Taste: rubber, wasabi, soy sauce, toast, sweetened cereal. Tart, slightly funky, but so much rubber and wasabi. I should be eating sushi. Palate: light body, average carbonation, slick mouth-coating texture. Overall: weird.

Champagne like carbonation. Quickly dissipating head. Amber in colour. Aroma of sour apples, lemons, vinegar. Taste matches aroma. Dry finish.

jonno (2275) - JAPAN - JUL 20, 2014
AN easy going gueze. Sour apples, brett, honey and pear. Not going to kick you in the klackers, but I would happy drink this if it came my way again.

hangunder (216) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle from LCBO. Smells funky, sour, lactic. Great sour, if not overly complex, aroma. Slightly hazy golden color, long lasting white head. Great green apple sourness upfront, but somehow the malt in this beer doesnít really do it for me completely, a tad too caramel sweet in the finish. Nice straightforward sour Gueuze, could possibly improve a bit with some age. Medium bodied and highly carbonated.

biggsbowler (260) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Draft - pours a light amber w/ white head. Tart, sour, and lemon zest in the nose. The taste is sour, tart, citrusy, and a dry finish. Nicely balanced and over all pretty good!

Draft pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of fruit and sour. Taste is dry, light sour and lots of fruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
