Bottle at Cotteridge Tasting, Saturday 24th January 2015 Light gold superbly refreshing. This is wonderfully tart the dryness remains throughout. Lovely lambic nose. Lovely zippy sourness. Superb, tastes likevyou are drinking something quite regal, this one really awakens the tastebuds.

neongolden (704) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2015
(750ml bottle @ Akkurat, shared with friends Jan 4 2015) Pours hazy medium gold with a big dense white head that lingers with lace. Aroma is super fresh. Green apple, cut fresh grass, dandelion and other light spring floral notes, light lemon zest, young oak sort of wood, softly musty and earthy but more in support than dominant. Palate has the style of the nose with fresh grassy notes and that light spring floral character throughout. Apple skin, very subtle lemon/lime acidity, soft bright wood - is it young barrels? Some wheat, lightly grainy towards finish. Hop bittering in finish, quite dry, fresh dandelion greens on the aftertaste with a little wood. Light, zesty body with moderate effervescent carb. Absolutely bloody phenomenal.

hopdog (9537) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with an off white head. Woody, funky, fruity, citrus, and well, just a very nice all around drinkable Gueuze. Loved it.

gEUS (1345) - Linden, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle shared at a 3 Fonteinen tasting... at 3 Fonteinen. Full line-up rank (highest first): Blauw, 50th, Millennium, Lente, Roze, Zomer, 1999. Compared Lente next to Zomer, accompagnied by some cheeses. While the Lente is well-balanced ad very floral in its characteristics, Zomer is way more smoother and perhaps a tad too silky, which went well with the fresh goat cheeses and Chaource. But again, the delta’s between the two are minor and totally subjective AND we totally negligible in the light of the total beer puddle :-).

Damico (2787) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Pours thick unclear amber with a big creamy beige head and decent lacing. Aroma brings sweet yeasty notes with a little sweet tart Belgian candi sugar. Flavor brings tart sweet yeast do balanced and delicious, dry yet juicy at the same time. Wow!!! Body is carbonated perfectly and will hold for a while I am sure.

weihenweizen (2019) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Refrigerated bottle poured into a glass. Hazy golden with big white head. Aroma is tart lemon, medium body, well carbonated and good small-bubble lacing. Taste is great sour lemon. My over all favorite beer of the tasting. I preferred this to 3 Fonteinen Vintage Oude Geuze, but would have loved to try this side-by-side with Golden Blend.

Bottle at Akkurat, shared with new friends from RateBeer. Pours a cloudy light amber with a low white head. Aromas of funk, farmhouse, earthy musk notes, apple and grass. Taste is funky and grassy, with apple and farmhouse notes and some citrus notes as well. Mouthfeel is dry and sprightly yet a nice smoothness as well. Great stuff!
