BeerandBlues2 (13594) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Bottle received from Ernest. Pours sparkling gold with an average, white, fizzy head, lasting with spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, meal), average hops (grass), average yeast (earth, horse blanket) with notes of green apples, grapes, and pears. Light bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

Pale brown colour. Typical sourness. A nice tasty gueuze. Hints of grapefruit in the aroma. Some wood in the end.

Bottle from Dranken Geers, near Gent, Belgium, March 08 consumed 25-05-08 My first pour was clear gold, with nice big white bubbly head that rapidly vanished, this beer became cloudier and murkier the more that I got down the 750ml bottle. Aroma was leathery, dusty and also moist flannel, unusual in that I failed to notice any barnyard funkiness, my twelve year old niece said she could smell rusty nails. Taste was quite big on grapefruits, good sharp acidic bite though not as fearsome as some Geuze, tasty beer refreshing and most enjoyable.

Bottle. Hazy ylellow colour with a small white head. Aroma and taste of sour apples and citrus. Milld in taste and body. Sweeter than expected.

Fuzzy yellow in color. Smell is sour and funky and not my "thing". Flavor is much more mild and bland than I expected it to be. It has some sourness to it and some funk but it is very underplayed.

3.5
bb (9519) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle. AMber beer with a nice off-white head. Tart, earthy, malty aroma. Tart, sweet malt, earthy, dusty flavor. Medium body. Lingering dusty, earthy, lemony tartness. More dust than I remember which got in the way of other flavors.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - APR 24, 2008
Nice geuze but not the best out there, The aroma is a tad too much "stomach" acidic - a common flaw with subpar geuzes. It is however still a "true" geuze and not som mainstream nothing. Interesting to try.

4.2
afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a large long lasting white head that leave good lacing. Aroma of tart green apples and citrus with just a hint of wild yeast funk. Taste is tart lemons and green apples. Medium to medium thin mouthfeel with a moderate amount of acidity and very mild spicy yeast finish. Very good.

3.9
nomad (18) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2008
Yes yes, this is more like it! Dirty gold with vertical columns of aggressive bubbles and a white collar that lasts all the way down. Aroma is a bombshell of grapefruit, lemon,sulphur and seawater that sends the nostrils into overload. Taste sends your palate all ways. Grapefruit winey sherbet seaweed lovebomb. Long and sour with stabs of wild woody yeast. Woof Woof....

4.6
pintocb (654) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2008
Golden with lots of floaties. Very sour aroma that bitch slapped my nose as soon as I popped the cork. The flavor is full of acid and citrus. Sour as pure lemon essence, whatever the hell that means. Sometimes a sour ale or Gueuze has a soapy quality to the finish, but this one finishes clean....or maybe it doesn’t, depending on how far you want me to carry the soapy metaphor. I don’t know. Leave me alone. Hell of an amazing sour lambic. I could drink sours for the rest of my life with no other fluid availble and be a happy, happy man.
