DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2009
750. Pours a hazy golden with a bone white head that has pretty good retention for the style. Aroma is nice soft funk, Orval-like, a lot of Brett B character, moreso than most Gueuzes. Lemon, grapefruit-rind, earthy, slight pepper, Barnyard and overall funk is low. Flavor is brightly acidic and citrusy, dry, champagne like and white wine. Nice. Lots of lemon, This is a fine lambic. I would not choose it over a Cantillon or 3 Fonteinen or Oude Beersel but it’s definitely better than this brands fruit offerings.

750 mL pours medium golden yellow with orange highlights. Big sour aroma, like overripe lemons, oranges, and limes mixed. Medium body, but a bit on the thick side. Easy drinking with a good amount of sourness. Slight funky yeasty flavors. Nice gueuze. Went well with pizza tonight. My wife made me laugh, "Smells and tastes like farts!" If thats what farts taste like, I am in heaven.

bhensonb (15515) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 6, 2009
330 ml corked bottle from Ledgers Liquor. Poured in a .25 AR-MEN pils glass - close to a flute. Golden color with a multi-finger white head. Smells freshly funky. Medium body with mildly frothy carbonation. Flavor is mildly sour with nice, light funky notes. Finishes rather clean. And puckery. Just excellent.

topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2009
Pours hazy golden with a thin white head. Fruity - wheaty aroma. Flavor is puckering sourness, fruits, lemon, a little grass. Very enjoyable.

3.7
KyotoLefty (10538) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 31, 2009
Musty, tart aroma with citrus, grass, barnyard. Decent depth. Big sour, tangy flavor with lemon, grapefruit. Became somewhat creamy as it warmed. Refreshingly tart. Not amazingly complex but tasty.

3.7
kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2009
75cl bottle from Rollin’ Oats (Tampa, FL). Pours a generally clear golden amber color with a thin whisky white head that settles slowly to virtually nothing. Aroma is sweet and fruity with notes of ripe fruit, fresh flowers, spice, some grass, hay and yeast notes. Flavor is tart and fruity with a slick mouthfeel. Notes of ripe tart fruit, some citrus, and faint honey and spice flavors as well. Generally light bodied with a fruity tart finish.

3.3
DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Bottle. Tart fruity aroma. Hazy golden yellow body, small white head. (Where do other reviewers get "dark amber"? Does the body color change over time?) Flavor is very tart, yeasty, unripe fruit, vinegar. Complex sour finish. Very refreshing.

3.6
Furseth (2165) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2009
0,7l Bottle: Red colour, witha red head. Aroma of citrus,fruits, flowers,sournes in the end. Flavor is almost the same, a bit grape fruits too, and had a mild, smal body, nice fruity finish.

4.1
SFLpunk (134) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 22, 2009
12oz green glass bottle with cork and crown cap. No date. Appearance: Poured into Duvel chalice. Light white head that recedes quickly leaving a little lacing. Cloudy orange-tan, like iced tea with lemonade. Some sediment, but not a lot. Nose: Sour fruit esters. Sour pear, wild lilies, wheat, hot river rocks, minerals, and a little doghair or horsehair smell. Palate: Intensely sour! Wow! I’ll continue my earlier analogy about iced tea with lemonade...except it’s more like lemonade discolored by iced tea. Light bodied with a little, quick, carbonation. Flavors of lemon juice, pear, granny smith apple, pine (cut wood), lemon zest, lime zest. Notes: Really sour! Did not expect that from the same company that provides us with sticky-sweet candy beers. The body is a little lacking in texture, but still, this is probably the best beer they make (that we get here).

jmw141 (134) - Canton, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2009
750 ml. corked. Intensely carbonated. I could hardly pour the darn thing without it spilling over. Rocky, frothy head. Clear orange in body color. Aroma of yeast, tartness, sweet, citrus, and some sourness. Flavor is sweet, tart, sour, citrus, and grapefruit. Acidic, medium body, dryish. I drank this bad boy during the LOST season 5 premiere. Good stuff.
