2010 / 2011 Bottle; Pour is murky gold with a medium fairly fine bubbled white head in this glass. It retains excellently - 30 minutes later theres a decent layer. The nose is barn hay, lemon grass, zest, wheat malts, and peppery spice. The flavor profile shines for me with more lemon zest, grass, florals, barn funk, pepper, light bitter, lemon juice near the finish - this is an extremely quenching brew for me. I’m loving the mouthfeel, finish, and general quality here for sure. Aarond (150) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle. Aroma is barnyard funk, pear, tart fruit. Appearance is light copper with a thin white head. Taste is funk, tart fruit, oak, grassy hops, and citrus fruit. Medium body, good carbonation, dry finish. Great beer. n00bface (137) - Minneapolis, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle at Le Poechenellekelder (Brussels, Belgium)tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Aroma: Hay, basement aromas, citrus, and some spicy aromas.
Appearance: Golden color with a small white head.
Taste: Very sour, with a slightly spicy aftertaste.
Palate: Light bodied, with an average carbonation.
I think I may have had this one before, but I don’t remember it being this good. It’s widely available, cheap, and quite drinkable, so it’s pretty easy for me to say that this is one of my favorite beers in the style.
Bottle with Pat and Sean. Pours a cloudy orange with fluffy white head. Nose of brett, fruit, citrus, poppy seeds, horse blanket. Fairly tart and fruity. Well carbonated. brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
2011-2012. A beautiful gueuze: straw color hides beneath a full finger of fluffy white head, leaving plenty of lace behind. Nose is slightly withdrawn, yet retains its funky presence. Grassy barnyard funk and citrus round things out.
Lemon zest and traditionally soured lambic join forces enthusiastically. Not the most complex gueuze on the block, yet the yeast that's present is quite tasty. I need to stash a few bottles of these away for a decade or so.

Bottle at home. Hazy golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is spicy, hay, horse blanket and basement. Flavor is mild sour, quite spicy, typical geuze. Smooth and drinkable. Bit boring. probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
750 ml bottle shared ar GRM’s. Hazy amber, no head. Strong barnyard and bitter herbals with a pleasant tart fruitiness, dry, woody, classic Lambic. Medium body with relaxed effervescence. Surprising tart fruitiness, peppery, spicy, bitter herbals, restrained barnyard funk, works for my palate; dry, tart, surprisingly bitter with nice tart fruitiness.

From a bottle at Living Social sour beer tasting DC. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head. Funky aroma. Tart apples with a bitter finish. luttonm (6483) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2013
750ml Bottle as a Christmas gift (thanks Megan!). Gusher, big yellow-white foamy head on very hazy, yeasty gold body. Sweet, tart yeasty nose, fairly mild and balanced. Rather fruity for a gueze, lemon citrus, with rounding sweet-dry finish. Quite flavorful, rather mild-tart souring notes, but very tasty.

Bottle 2010. Had a few of these, but never rated. Nose of lemon and resin. Get some wood, lemon, acid juicyness in the taste. Not much in the funk area. Really nice, tart, solid Gueuze. Gonna throw a couple in cellar to see how they age.
