My bottle has million pieces floating around. Aroma is very light (like a freshly cleaned stable house) tastes pretty much similar because it is neither strongly acidic nor sour.

Botella en 99Cervezas. De un precioso color dorado, brillante y bastante transparente. Forma espuma completamente blanca de burbuja muy pequeña y notablemente persistente. Adherencia media. De intensidad media-alta en nariz, da de entrada notas de manzana verde ácida y sidra. Hay pan blanco fresco, una nota muy delicada de miel y una fuerte sensación en nariz de frescor y efervescencia. Las notas animales vienen a continuación, aunque son contenidas y elegantes. Complejidad media-alta. De entre los cuatro sabores básicos destaca inmediatamente el ácido, acompañado de un dulce suave que lo equilibra muy bien. Es un ácido que me recuerda mucho al de masticar el tallo de un agrito (algunos sabréis de lo que estoy hablando). Las notas animales son mucho más moderadas en boca. La manzana verde de la que hablaba antes se deja ahora sentir mejor a través de una cierta astringencia (morded una manzana verde y entenderéis de lo que estoy hablando). Reconozco que esta cerveza me trae recuerdos de mi infancia, los agritos con mi padre en Alicante y las manzanas verdes de mi abuela en Galicia. Está claro que una cerveza te gusta cuando las sensaciones traen a la mente ese tipo de recuerdos agradables. En boca es ligera y efervescente, muy vivaz y ligeramente astringente. Muy muy refrescante. Persistencia moderada. Una auténtica delicia de cerveza, de las que sorprenden y dan ganas de repetir. Absolutamente recomendable!

DraftDodger (1662) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2017
Copenhagen 10/6 2017. 75 cl bottle with cork from Vin De Table. Some old Abbey on the label (of course). Pours hazy golden yellow with huge bubbly white head. Settles as thin patchy layer of foam. Aroma is lightly sweet but dominated by overpowering very tart sourness. Lemon, citrus and grapefruit. Almost acidic. Strong carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is strong and intense. Light sweetness followed by intense tart sourness. Sour aftertaste and a very dry finish. Just as a Lambic should be. Immensely sour and dry as a Desert. When they say they do not add sugar - I believe them. Not for everyone.

Kiezmar (789) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle. Orange, little bit hazy. Aroma fruity, some peaches, grapes, pear. Taste is dry, very tart. Fruity flavours. Good one

dlara_brewer (33) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 19, 2017
Color amarillo turbio con levadura y espuma blanca. Aroma a manzana, malta y flor blanca. En boca predomina la acidez, sabores a uva, manzana verde y cítricos. Cuerpo medio alta carbonatación y final seco.

thomat (4097) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2017
On tap @ Fermentoren. Cloudy yellow with a tiny white head. Fruity and sour tones. Fruit, sour,tart and dry. Medium body with a balanced fruity / sour finish.

anstei (2510) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 10, 2017
Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow. Aroma is funk, farmhouse, stables, citric. Body is medium, light funky, quite fruity and sweet for a gueuze. Soft fizzy carbonation, almost flat. Dry funky palate. A very solid gueuze!

ozzatoadisback (200) - ITALY - MAY 7, 2017
Clean light orange, slightly murky on second pour. Small head recedes quickly leaving only the thinnest lace. Aroma is mostly tartly citric and slightly pungent, with a musty note growing as the beer warms up. Taste shows firm sourness/tartness (average per style), mellowed enough by slight sweetness. Citric notes are dominant as the smell suggested with lemon and tangerine (am i getting a hint of strawberry?), with slight mustiness showing up in the back (something like salami peel may be the best attempt at depicting it). Light to medium bodied with fine, very gentle crispness. Goes down terribly easy with a surprisingly mellow finish given it’s tartness. Overall decently complex and very solid in terms of balance and drinkability. Well done

ALIBALI (2398) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2017
Das Softie Gueuze. Nah am Boon Black Label, zum Ende dann aber doch straighter Stumpfer. Sweet im Kontext von SOUR 🎆👌. 375ml Bottle im CAFE BELGE, leuven.

glennmastrange (2899) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2017 Bottle. Moderate straw for the malt, light herbs and lemon rind for the hops, musty basement, damp rotten wood and a fall leaf pile for the yeast, with mace and white wine must in the background . Head is large, frothy, white with slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is sparkling clear, light amber. Flavor starts heavily to harshly acidic and acetic, then finishes heavily acidic, lightly bitter and a touch salty. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery, with a fizzy carbonation and a tart finish. I?ve conquered sour ales, but straight up Geueze Lambics still kick my ass. This one was no different.
