It poured a golden color with a medium white head. The aroma was a bit cidery with some barnyard hints and a good bit of sweat. The flavor was very dry and very sour with a little cider taste.

375ml bottle -

Herring Creek Camping beer tasting - while this wasnt one of the best guezes out there, it was still really nice. Kind of like a Introductory to Gueuze kinda beer. It wont kick you in the balls with its intensity, but it will perk you up and let you know youre drinking one. Aroma is slightly cheesy, sour, light vomity, hay with just a touch of white wine. Flavor is on the musty side, a little more cheese, medium sourness/lemony, light oak-y-ness with a bone-dry, semi-mouth strippin feel. Love this stuff.

Pours hazy dark golden color with white head. Funky sour aroma. Sour, lactic flavor. Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty good.

ElDesmadre (3626) - Mikołw, POLAND - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle. Grey-orange with quite a fluffy head for a lambic. Aroma is dry white wine, apples, some wood, vinegar, mineral elements and even plums. Taste is quite funky and sour in a way I am not able to find pleasant. Dry white wine and cider mixed with a very dry finish carrying the aroma of plums, wood and leather. Very good quality but this style is a matter of acquired taste I havent yet acquired.

jake65 (3514) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle: Hazy peach color with a few floaters. Only the slightest ring of white head. Aroma is extremely potent; lots of what Id characterize as barnyard tart. Very vinous and some yeast. Taste is consistent with the aroma and strongly tart. Lively yeast and more vinous. Good.

Had it on tap at Redlight Redlight. Taste is a mix of tart and sweet; very delicious and refreshing.

KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Its sour - apples (Granny Smith?) and lemony, fruity - not a big nose, light-gold and slightly pink with a hint of murkiness, no lacing or head to speak of, light bodied, slightly effervescent;

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Bottle from Corridor Wine in Laurel MD. Pours a hazy golden amber with a white head. Funky aroma of lemon, hay, and apple. Medium bodied with a semi fine spritzy mouthfeel. Flavor of pale Belgian malts, lemon, apple, and sour candy. Not overly lactic or acetic - pretty tame but very drinkable. I could chug this on a hot day. Great gateway example of the style.

bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip. Appearance: Hazy honey with stark white head. Aroma: Horseblanket funk, apple, vinegar and oak. Obviously smells tart and dry. Taste: Mostly tart with vinegar, oak, and granny smith apples. Nice spicy kick to complement the tartness, although the apple taste provides a mild sweetness as well. Palate: Fairly high carbonation, with a light, crisp body. Finishes dry and tart as expected. Overall: Quite refreshing and tasty, despite being a little one dimensional. Quality Gueuze.
