Nik925 (795) - USA - DEC 31, 2010
Looks bad in the glass, aroma is weak, and the palate isn’t all that great. everything else is really good. Actually, it does seem like a blend of great and bad. Strong tartness, with minimal "barnyard". Crisp and surprisingly clean. Lingering sourness, and as the sour fades different flavors come out.

BREWMUSKCLES (2673) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2010
very much like champagne with lighter body and carbonation. it is tart and full of different yet complementary fruit flavors matched with some cheesy funk of feet and barnyard. light with some sour in yeasty substance. interesting tartness and beerlike bitter hop.

jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2012 Hazy orange with soft, creamy, white head / Light, tart, nose of orchard fruit and funk / Light to medium body, stylish, tart and acidic, hint of sweetness, with fine balance and dry finish / Flavors of rotten apples, lemon, orange, bologna, caramel, straw, and barnyard / An elegant, balanced, gueuze.

ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Sour aroma with apple, cherries, light raspberry and oak. Champagne color translucent body with white head. Flavor matches the nose, nice and sour. Bubbly palate. Nice Gueuze.

milewide (2222) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Delightfully sour, with barnyard aroma. Very modest head. Cloudy dark blond color. Enjoyed this 12.7 oz. bottle---but I’m not sure I could get through a 750 ml bottle! :-)

SanfordBrewer (1574) - Sanford, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2011 Lucent copper, thin beige head, medium body, medium carbonation, high effervesence.

Aroma: very lambic with sour fruit notes and a hint of horseradish.

Taste: very bright sourness, mysterious fruit esters.

Sourness is crisp and lemony.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2010 375ml bottle from Dranken Geers. Pours brassy gold with the faintest veil of haze and a short-lived white foam receding to the edges of the glass. Saliva-making, medium-tart aroma with lemon juice, Rowntree’s blackcurrant wine gums, sweaty horse and a hint of Brie rind dankness. I can also detect some genuine hop aroma that I rarely get from a lambic- albeit dank, soggy, almost rotten hops left to wilt in the rain for several months after harvest time. Tangy more than stomach-clenchingly tart with some funky, intensely lemony, sour apple acidity rounded with blackcurrant and musty old hop. Good- I don’t detect any dumbing down here, and might actually be able to get through a whole tumbler without reaching for the Gaviscon. Authentic lambic character, without the heartburn. (EDIT: took me 2 hours to drink it, and I still got heartburn).

3.1
Christian (13605) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2010
BB 2015. Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of leather and funk, with a touch of acetone. Unpleasant acidic flavour with harsh acetone

3.6
mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
[3140-20100718] 375mL bottle. Sour fruity yeast aroma. Hazy, light orange brown body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Intensely sour yeast flavour has a long sour aftertaste. Super sour medium flavour. Not overly complex but good and MAN that’s sour!
Overheard: "Based on true events but he made up the characters." "Oh, like Twilight."

adnielsen (10605) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 Bottle @ home. Hazy, orange golden appearance with an off white head. Fairly funky, barnyard, deep lemon citrusy, sour aroma. Tart, while grape, lemon citrusy, tangy, vanilla, fairly tart flavor. Decent gueuze.
