Clear pale blond beer, no head. Aroma: little funky, sourish, quite some chlorine (which usually only appears in sours with fruit). MF: light to no carbon, medium body. Taste: little bitter, funky, watery, weird. Aftertaste: some tannins, dry, bit funky, watery finish. Pretty weak...

Light cloudy gold with a horse blanket and wheat aroma + mild amonnia. Mildly tart and acidic a pretty dull sour. sebletitje (10067) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle @ Drink Rich’s American beer, thanks to Omgrich.
Dorée, léger voile, pas de col.
Profil reste sec avec une pointe de boisé/chêne, léger fruité gardant ce profil similaire à la version lambic qui tire vers le cidre. Le tout reste aigre-doux. A le mérite d’être agréable à boire sans tomber dans le côté wild-brett des bières américaines, mais on reste très loin d’une gueuze belge.

2 Bombers acquired in a Rivertown sours trade back in 2012. Traded one away, drinking the other finally. Stoked to try this as their blackberry sour was very nice. golden pour, 3 finger fluffy head that faded to almost nothing. Very funky with a light sweetness, hints of balsamic, peach and wood with intense sour lemon. Taste is very acidic, sharp and quite sour. I should learn my lesson to stop aging american wilds. It has a nice funk factor but ultimately is very thin and not that exciting of a beer. Not sure this should be in the Gueuze category. No mention of spontaneous fermentation.

Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart fruit, straw and spices. Light to medium body with flavors of tart cherries, vinous oak and mild spices. The finish is tart with a cherry and citrus aftertaste. Pretty good all around. mcberko (17339) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy blonde with a small white head. Nose is fairly funky, with light citrus and farmhouse notes. Flavour brings out citric notes, moderate acidity, and very light funk. Finishes on acidic, vinous notes. Certainly not like an authentic gueuze by any means, but pretty nice sour.
