Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
In short: A relatively smooth drinking uber-funky and not-so-sour Gueuze. Excellent
How: Botttle at Amundsen Bryggeri, Oslo Norway. A few months after the beer release
The look: Cloudy golden amber body topped by a large beige head with good retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glasss
In long: Nose is uber-funky, a symphony of brett and everything that smells wild and farmhouse. There is very little sourness transpiring through the nose, this is pure classy funk with mild fruity notes. Body is very full with a dense fluffy texture, carbonation is very active and the mouthfeel is very lively. I would have preferred a slightly more relaxed carbonation, but Im just nitpicking here. Taste has a whole lot of funk, lactic acid, leathery notes, brett going into grapefruits territory, light notes of green apples. Very rustic overall character evoking old attic and things of the sort. Acidity and sourness sensation are not very hight for the style which makes it an almost sessionable gueuze. A fantastic lambic blend that focuses more on elegance than intensity. Up there with the top sessionnable Gueuze such as Tilquin and others. Drinking this great 750ml of lambic all by myself made feel really sad for the people who have actual friends they need to share their bottles with.

Pours a hazy gold with a thick white head. Aroma of funk, hay and something else I can't pinpoint. Taste follows, really nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbeatty (1245) - New York, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle, 10/13/2012. Pours a rustic amber, cloudy orange highlights, impressive rocky head, sudsy lacing. Aroma of barnyard, horse blanket, nice mustiness; light vinegar and lactic notes, bright tart citrus, grapefruit, berries, and oak. Taste is clean citric tartness, acidic, light fruitiness with big grapefruit bitterness, sour tropical funkiness in the finish. Dry, light sparkling palate. Very nice, an understatement.

VsXsV (4042) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 Bottle. Hazy light amber liquid with medium to big white head with quite big bubbles. Aroma of apples, 3F funk (barnyard, sweat, light tropical fruit), minerals, lemons, wheat and very light sulphur. Taste is dry and medium sour with nice 3F funk and notes of apples and lemons. Very balanced. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very nice stuff. Complex and balanced.

Morten siger at den ikke smager af citrus. Det mener jeg at den gør! Masser af aroma og smag. Dejlig syrlig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy apricot straw color with a white head. The nose seems to be less pronounced than I imagined it would be with notes of lemon, peach, some caramel, apricot, and funk. Fruity. Med/light mouthfeel. Sweet fruity like start gives way to drawn out tart notes with some nice funkiness. Balanced. Slight bitterness in the ending. Well carbonated.

Bottle shared by mattyb83! Hazy dirty yellow pour, lots of lasting carbonation, bile like funk aroma (in a good way). Flavor is cheesy, herbal funky hay and wild bite on the finish. Really damn good!
