troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2011
[Tap] Dark golden pour with a quickly receding fizzy head. Aroma of soured fruits, wood chips, and sour apple. Tart fruit taste includes pear and apricot. Funky green apple notes and clean grains also evident in the finish. Fresh and tangy finish. I’d say the mouthfeel is so-so. Average carbonation levels. Pretty nice.

3.3
Strykzone (7658) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Tea colored light brown and mostly clear. A very small off white head that soon becomes a ring. An aroma of mildly funky fruit, yeast, and very soft nutmeg. The flavor is sour with vinegar to open. Funky fruit including prunes. Bret can be tasted and it adds plenty of the funk. There is just a hint of fizz to the feel but mostly it is much like pulp free fruit juice.

ben4321 (6735) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Location: Draft at RnH, 2/19/11

Aroma: The nose has some sour yeast and funk to it with a little wood and earth
Appearance: This one pours a hazy golden-beige color with a white head
Flavor: The taste is sour but not particularly fruity, there’s lots going on here
Palate: The body is fairly light and clean with a tingly but not overly carbonated feel to it
Overall Impression: This is a pretty nice sour lambic style offering. It is pretty well made, and enjoyable to drink. This is definitely something that I would go for again in the future.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Pours a cloudy light gold with quickly dispersing foam. smells citrusy sour. Tastes crisp and sweet with certaily sour flavors. Very little fruit flavors other than the possibility of grapefruit from the hops.

3.5
Tmoney99 (14963) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Bottle. Poured hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex fruit, yeast and citrus aroma. Medium body with and tingly texture and lively carbonation. Medium sour fruit flavor with a medium sour finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

3.4
unclemike (3163) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Hazy apricot color with a frothy (small bubbles) off-white head. Aroma sizzles the nose with sour and citrus. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. It’s a bit acetic, quite astringent, a little citrus, some ripe light stone fruit. It finishes out with funk. Not strong funk. Mellow, delicious funk

3.6
crossovert (13908) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
best before 09-2015. Served decently cold, around 40 degrees. Pours a cloudy gold with peach accents, there is a tiny head that forms with a vigorous pour. In the bottle there is tons of gunk stuck to the walls of the bottle. The scent isn’t as pungeant as other gueuzes but it has a hint of vinegar sourness about, some citrus, perfumey pear, apple peel, alcohol, and funk. This one is a lot funkier than the other gueuzes I have had. The mouthfeel is also weird, it has a biting carbonation but feels almost water and syrupy in the mouth only to leave you with a bone dry finish. The taste is predominantly citric sourness with some vinegar,plastic, and tart fruitiness, the aftertaste has a bit of a peppery note and slight pale malt. No sign of malts or hops really though, its the yeast talking in this brew. This is a definite funk lover’s dream, it isn’t too bad but not amazing, some aspects of it are a bit too rough and unrefined, it isn’t as smooth or drinkable as some of the others in the category.

godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2011
bottle at Le Saint-Bock. pours clear, but dark golden with a small white head that quickly turns into nothing. aroma is typical lambic...barnyard funk, bretts, just plain sour. though not as good as Cantillon, this beer didn’t disappoint. taste is tart, acidic and sour, everything you need from a Gueuze. the finish is bone dry. nice bubbles on the palate, a heck of a refreshing beer.
