eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
750ml bottle served in a Tumbler glass. A: Pours a cloudy orange color forming a huge fizzy, noisy, bubbled white head when poured. Good retention and many lacings left S: Nose is mainly tart and fruity. White grapes, apples and pears. Lambic yeasts are really noticed T: Follows the nose, tart, fruity and Gueuze. Caramel malts. In overall, an acid beer. Metallic taste. Upfront is slightly sweet followed by a dry taste and a tart and mild bitter aftertaste M: Light body. Medium to low carbonation. Tart aftertaste O: Excellent beer. Delicate Drie Fonteinen style, at the same time, powerful Gueuze specimen. Highly recommended [ BA Review @ 7/28/2012 ]

Foffern (1252) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a hazy orange colour with a surprisingly big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of horse, rowanberries, apple cider vinegar, citrus and barnyard. Sour flavour filled with more berries, especially gooseberries, wheat and forest floor. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A balanced, rich and wonderful gueuze!

neepsntatties (1216) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle sample courtesy of "hannont". Colour...very cloudy golden straw with an overflowing white head. Nose...quite lemony but with a fair amount of barnyard and horse blanket, too. Imagine squeezing a lemon on a pile of hay covered horse pucky, and there you have it! Palate...whoa Nelly!! Did I just eat alum?! Man, this is an intensely tart beast! Ok. Now that the initial shock is over, the lemon comes back and makes a zesty appearance. There’s still funk and an array of sweet spice, all if which works very well together.

maekchu (2200) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. 2011 vintage. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Soild, strong barnyard: baby manure, spice, and strained fruit. Medium copper color, 2-3 cm head, great lace. Rich and sharp fruit attacks the palate right away, blends and moderates very slowly. Tart and crisp. Great, refreshing stuff. Tingling on the tongue for long afterwards. Excellent.

KyotoLefty (6571) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Brilliant gold-orange color, with a big head. Lemony nose, light leather, grapefruit zest. Huge, vibrant flavors, fresh but complex. Grapefruit and lemon zest, light funk, nice bitterness, a fresh, very summery beer. Great.

RexTalionis (2518) - FINLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle 75 cl. Pours goldencopper in color with a foamy whitish head. Tart apples, funkiness, sour citrus fruityness, more funkiness and lemony notes in aroma. Nice. Later on also some barnyard and old cellar and leathery notes appear. Apples, fresh apples to be more exact, in taste. Also that nice lemony juicyness is present mixed with them funky barnyard notes. Light white wine grapes as well in taste. Hints of sour notes from citrus fruits in aftertaste and more of that funkiness too.

thirdeye11 (5598) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2014
(750ml bottle) cloudy orange-gold, fine tan bubbles. Nose of moss on an old cellar floor, old books, bright citrus fruit, aged hops, wet/moldy papers. Taste of tart orange, lemon, quite tart in general on the verge of being throat Closing. Delicious but not as complex as Lente.

Ferris (4497) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle - White grape, white peach and a great tartness. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Big up front tartness and grape with a long tart finish. Hard to compare to the others but still good.

Bottle shared at RBWG after party. Cloudy yellow pour, two fingers of nice foamy head. Aroma, funky cheese, sour tartness, horse blanket. Taste, sour up front, lots of funk, cheese, and some nice sourness. Really solid.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2014
750ml bottle, tasted at RBSG. Totally hazy orange amber color. Thin ring of off-white head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light dry, light slick in the finish,. Awesome perfect amount of musty funky character, light citrus, light spice. All very subtle and well blended with a great amount of oak. Cool moderate tart taste, light spicy. Awesome geuze.
