Find a Kriek or Framboise lambic from Cantillion or Dire Fontienen or Tilquin or Hanssens or Boon or De Ranke and you'll see that lambic beer is soursoursour.
Gueuze, after all, is just a blend of lambics that haven't had fruit added.
I actually did know that gueuze was unfruited lambic...and come to think of it...it was a Gueuze Cantillion that turned my face inside out. I've come close a few times to buying a bottle of the De Ranke at the Saucer, but haven't. I'll have to try it to see...but I'm assuming that if the sourness is in the same vicinity as the gueuze I may not be a fan. to each his own I reckon.
