Pours nice orange color, with unfiltered yeast. Smells of a barn, with some orange and leather. Taste nicely acidic, with excellent sour flavor.

Big old bottle busted out of hibernation by footbalm, a 1994 vintage! Are you kidding me, a fifteen year old Gueuze! Hell yes it was good. Pours a cloudy orange with a nice thick white head. The nose was really fruity but also sour as hell. Some barnyard goodness, it really smells like hay. A initially sour flavor, tons of funk, but a sweet and fruitiness that balances it all so well. A sweet hay like flavor and some excellent fruity flavors. The mouthfeel of some lambics are fizzy and when combined with the acidic sourness, they make the beer hard to drink a lot of. This beer’s mouthfeel has mellowed a lot in the years and was perfect and smooth. The age has done wonders, I’m converted to aged lambics. Really nice.

Interesting beer. I wouldn’t buy it because it’s not really my style, but it wasn’t bad. Sweet nose, very lively carbonation. Has a light body with a sour puckering punch to it. Lots of interesting sidenotes here. Somwehat sweet. Tastes kind of like champagne...

Pours a pale dull hazy yellow with a lasting head. Skunky garbage & sweet smell. Taste is sweet at first, closes in quickly in a puckering way, dru finish. Complex, sour grapes, paint thinner and bile. Thin body with good carbonation. This is a complex and not so accessible beer, not my favourite style but I’ll give it points for being complex.

Aroma is par with other decent sours, but it is lacking a little in the way of taste.. Tartness is light in the taste. High carbonation.

Bottled at OBriens with Katie on Valentines Day ’09. It was either this or Consecration, but being pretty damn sauced aleady, we figured it a good idea to go with this to have the fortitude to drive home. Hazy orange color with a bit of yeast sediment and a large and frothy white head. Plenty of carbonation. Aroma is white grape with lemongrass and some light yeast biscuit with lactobacillus. Flavor is quite simple with more lemon citrus and earthy hay notes finishing things up. Overall, lacks complexity and is fairly one-dimensional. Enjoyable.
