Hazy orange and bubbly. Stable beige head. Classic gueuze aroma, cheese, feet, barnyard, almost manure in this one, all in a good way of course. Sour, very refreshing. A little lighter than some other gueuzes, and I think a little bit on the fizzy side. All in all, another classic, very good. Only slight dropoff from Girardin Black Label (and probably better for the price).

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 22, 2007
375mL bottle, BB Jan 16, 2005. Poured a clear medium golden with a whole bunch of rising carbonation and a short creamy white head. Aroma was quite fragrant with lemon, vinegar, and dusty old barn lofts... touches of grainy older oak and sliced green apples too.

Mellow lemon and vinegar at the tip of the tongue build nicely into a sour (but not too much so) middle... dusty lemon and funky light fruit-based yeast fill out the flavor.. short-to-medium lenghth moderately sour finish.. dry and uber refreshing. Wonderful drink!

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2010 Bottled at the Belgian Embassy in Oslo. (37,5cl corked bottle, served by the brewer.) It pours almost clear, with the expected excuse for a white head. It has a dryish aroma with apples, sourness and barnyard. The flavor is very nice, with apples, sourness and notes of barnyard. Astringent, medium mouthfeel and a long sour finish. A lovely brew, well suited to make a break in an else sweet-flavored evening. Rating: 7-3-8-4-15-3.7. 070103

Bottle, 375ml. An unclear, golden beer with some clouds. A small, off-white head sits on top. Barnyard, apples and a lemony touch on the nose. Funky flavor with barnyard, leather notes and citrus. Apples and other fruits too. Medium, dry and effervescent. Citrusy, barnyard finish. A really pleasant one, even though its not among the very best. As its available in Norway, I drink this one rather frequently, so its definitely not bad. 101009

ottled. Hazy golden in colour. Minor white head. The aroma is fruity and sour. You get hints of strawbery! and rubarb! The flavour is dry and fruity... just like a cider... Apples, strawberries and rubarbs... Mmm... a dry aftertaste as well.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2007
375ml bottle. Sour aroma, with oak, mahagony, lemon, black pepper, nuts, bacon. Outstanding complexity. Very nice pour for a lambic, with a tight foamy head that sticks around. Flavor is gentle sourness, kind of akin to a flemish sour or oud bruin but a bit more acidic. Oak and cherry shine here, with a touch of black pepper. Good palate, very drinkable, just a tad thin up front. Very nice gueuze, with a very soft body that is much different from their kriek, which I found to be intensely minerally.

hopdog (11888) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2007
12.7oz bottle. Poured a medium and hazy golden color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of barnyard, leather, sour fruits and yeast. Tastes of green apples, tart cherries, and all around brett. Nice pucker factor.

oh6gdx (25723) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2007
Bottled. Hazy golden colour, mediumsized white head. Sour fruits and yeast. Acidic footsweat along with sour fruits and acidicness. Flavour is quite the same, and is a very superdry thing. Some slight metallicness showing also, yet it is very wellbalanced. Hardcore thing.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - MAR 14, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy golden. Aroma is a complex mixture of baryard, fruit, hay, and viniger. Flavor has a bit of fruitiness, acidity, cheese, and funkiness. All of which blend together quite well.

larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2012 Thin offwhite head. Hazy yellow body with vigourous carbonation. Hoppy metallic wooden barnyard aroma with tropical fruity notes. Dry-sour barnyard wooden grainy lemony taste with metallic peppery fruity notes. Thin, sharpish mouthfeel. Dry lemony wooden aftertaste with mineraly winter apple and wax notes. Faint barnyard throughout. Amazing harmony, even if the beer in some respects sharp and harsh.. (0.355l bottle from Ole R. Original rating from an old bottle bought in Cambridge. Rated a third time from wine monopoly, then a fourth.)

beermouth (435) - Langeskov, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2007
Slight hazy yellow/orange color with huge rocky head. Nice soft sourness and lots of acidity. Tatse of bitter lemon, grape fruit and vinegar. Might be best after 5-10 years...
