Zilverenmaan (276) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2017
Aroma very funky, peppery, acidic, complex. Taste funky, less acidic, aftertaste bitter rather than acidic, some vinegar. Very wine-like. Some sweet notes, hints of vanilla even. Bit of an off- taste to it ( the cork, tannines,... ? ), not disturbing though. Mouthfeel very soft, poor gently. Quality.

Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Bottle @home, (Clear out the cellar evening). Pours golden, hazy/cloudy yellow, no real head a few bubbles. Nose is lemons and limes, funk, sour, slightly spicy. Taste is more of the same with some added salt.

Mister_Li (1564) - GERMANY - AUG 27, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2017 Leicht trübes Goldgelb mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Leicht säuerlich, grüne Äpfel, etwas Zitronenschale, Apfelessig, leicht trocken.

Parmenion777 (356) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle, pours a hazy apricot yellow colour with a near white head which quickly dissipated to a film. Aroma is sour fruits, cider vinegar, champagne and barnyard funk. Moderately tart and acidic, some sour fruit, cider apple and barnyard funk with a crisp dry finish.

Bottle from brewery. This was actually the 2006 Gueze from Cantillon. Couldn’t find it on the rate beer account so just putting it here. Beautiful golden colour and a real grower. It is a sublime beer.

SG111 (2033) - New York, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Bottle from the source. Thanks, Jane! Pours clear opaque yellow orange, white head. Aroma is funky tart vinegar, apple juice, lambicy. Flavor is vinegar, tart funk, sour, kinda bitterness to it. Carbonated fairly heavily but not unduly so. Solid and quality is undeniable. But doesn’t blow my mind. Tasty overall with a surprisingly bitter finish

explosivedog (1618) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 10, 2017
On tap at Garage Project Wild Workshop. Pours bright gold. Apple, white wine notes are big, funky hay, lemon, gooseberry, bread, little salinity, dried apricot, floral. Big fizzy body popping with citrus and acid notes. God damn I’m in heaven. I am literally in heaven.

beer-yum (1890) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 7, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2017 Funky tart aroma in a golden yellow pour. Similar taste profile = slightly sour with hints of yeast, malt, apple, white grape, and citrus fruit followed by a dry moreish finish. A superb example of the style - and one that would also appeal to a sparkling wine drinker I suspect.

maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - AUG 7, 2017
Clear golden yellow pour with small white head. Aroma of yeast, malts, grains, green apple, white wine and citrus. Taste follows the aroma, slightly tart and dry finish. Light bodied, high champagne like carbonation, nicely balanced.

huineman (730) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 4, 2017
Sample at Cantillon Brewery, after the tour. It pours cloudy whitish golden, almost no head, little to no retention. Aroma is low: bread, honey, quince, yeast. Taste is fizzy, bone-dry, light, very sour yet soft. Dry, short-lived, somewhat bitterish finish.
