arondee (583) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Pours a flat hazy pink orange color with 0 head and a very small amount of carbonation. Aroma is barnyard funk, sour yeast, and lemon. The taste is dry and slightly sour. Itís a lot like a champagne without the carbonation. Very interesting. Iím a big fan.

GregClow (2914) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Bright and very slightly hazy copper-leaning orange-gold with a thin white head. Aroma of slightly fermented lemon, peppery yeast, a slight dusty-funky backnote. Flavour is undeniably tart, but with a sweet tone to it as well, like SweeTarts candy. Notes of various sour fruits - sour apple, sour grapes, lemon - come towards the finish, along with a surprisingly pleasant brackishness right at the end. Not the most complex gueuze around, but still a very enjoyable and respectable one.

BillHick420 (434) - North Dakota, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2014
Pours cloudy yellow, with a small white head. Nose of sour. Sour aroma, stringent, sweet malt backdrop. Brett. Lemon. Very good!

andrewje41 (670) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle pour at special brews. Pours a medium orange color with a wheat like sour fruit aroma. Sour fruit all around. Strawberry, raaoberry, a little cherry. Heavy sour, mild fruit. Delicious beer. Loved it.

degbert (1201) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a shallow, fine-grained, quick-dissipating head. The nose is lemon, umami, and an almost sea-like salinity. Tart and dry on the tongue, with considerable lemony acidity; thereís a slight thread of ashy bitterness as well that cuts the acid nicely. Finish is long, prickly, and astringent. Refreshing.

Fatehunter (1401) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Pours a finger of head on a cloudy light straw body. The aroma is lots of raspberries. The taste is sour and tart all over the place; raspberry and lemon. The texture is soft, light and fizzy. Amazing. An outstanding drink.

nearbeer (3847) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2014
375 ml. bottled 2012/11/13. Lightly hazy body is burnt orange-amber with some mild activity that supports a creamy disc of bubbles on top. Nose is sharp citrus acidity, funky white grape must and oxidized apple. A drop of honey with the beeswax rounds it off a bit. Flavors of lemon turning to vinegar, starchy rice, earthy white grape skins, soap and raw wood. Medium body is astringent and has a soft, medium-high carbonation. Iím not really a lambic aficionado and this oneís plenty tart for me, but I can tell this isnít enough for the real sourheads. It also seems to be missing a little something in the flavor.

cattaneopapa (195) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Reviewed from old notes. 375ml bottle from Summerhill LCBO, Toronto, ON. 5% alc./vol. Aroma: Belgian yeast, oranges, and some spiciness. Appearance: Hazy amber colour with 1 finger of lasting white head. Taste: sour, grapes, citrusy. Refreshing beer.

esp0r (2128) - NORWAY - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Pours straw yellow with a thin white head. Smell of funk, tart berries, light malts, spices and hints of anis. Light sweet, quite dry, moderate to medium sour, tart fruits and lactic acids, fruity berry flavors, some funk and a touch of salt in the back, then lemon in the end. Quite ok gueuze, but not the funkiest or most sour example out there.

thb (707) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
Deep yellow with murk and diminishing white bubbles. Aroma is green apple, pepper, champagne, funk. Taste is bracingly sour - honestly itís a little like stomach acid. Dry. Harsh. Interesting.

bursprak (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle from KaDeWe. Hazy brownish pour with a dirty head that fades fairly quick. Some artificial sweetness, some barnyard funk, lemon peel and some vanilla.
