UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 Pours a hazy golden with a nice white head... Aroma of lemon candy, sour apples, and funk, smells a bit like original Airborne medicine... Taste of lemon, a bit of grass, a touch of apple, funk, quite tart... Finish is immediately sour with a touch of sweetness cutting through... This is intensely drinkable... WOWish...

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2010 Butter’s 4th cellar reduction. Pours a little hazy gold with a thick bubbly white head. Sweet citrus honey and tart on the nose and an extremely tart taste. It is a near burning sour sensation but is oddly good. Has a sweet finish with little tart aftertaste. Butters (4063) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Bottle at the Fourth Butters’ Cellar Clearance Event. I am not a fan of sours. But I can tell that this is one of the best i’ve had. Pours a hazy gold. Nose is quite tart with lemon and cheese. Flavor is the same with a heavier tart quality. Quite good. But expensive. MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Barnyard yeasty pee pee on the nose. Transparent yellow gold. Sour and acidic. First time for anything this extreme in style. Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 1, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2010 Pours a fading off-white head with a golden-amber body. Aromas of sour, barnyard, grapefruit. Flavor is lemon, grapefruit, funk. FInish is sour, dry, and bitter.

Pours nice orange color, with unfiltered yeast. Smells of a barn, with some orange and leather. Taste nicely acidic, with excellent sour flavor. douglas88 (9568) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 28, 2009
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. clong83 (285) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 27, 2009
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... mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2009
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. hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Delilahs Vintage Tasting. Golden color, big bubbly white head. Sour fruitish aroma. Flavor is dry fruits with some sour hints. Overall quite a sweet Gueuze in my opinion. A bit sticky palate afterwards. Nice finish to a tasitng.
