Bottle 750ml. @ RBESG 11 Grand Tasting at Dean Swift, 10 Gainsford Street, London, England SE1 2NE.

[ As my rating # 22000 on ratebeer ]. Unclear medium orange colour with a average to large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy yeasty, barnyard, grapefruit, citrus, tart, sulfur notes. Flavour is moderate sweet and light acidic with a long duration, funky, dry. Very nice and very good balanced ;O) Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft and fizzy. [20110807]

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2012

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. Subtle and rather sophisticated Brett aroma, not too tart, not too farty. Medium body, a dry and almost crisp tart fruitiness again with subtle Brett. Tart alright but very easy going - almost smooth. 080512

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2012
Bottled (from bierkompass.de). Amber colour, big off-white foamy head, that settles quite quick. Aroma is big time sour/tart notes with mild fruity notes as well as quite big farmyard. Flavour is tart/sour fruits, some earth, yeast and farmyardy dusty notes. Childrens lambics are blown away by this kick ass hardcore gueuze. Brilliance in a bottle I dare say. Expensive, but worth every penny (or cent!).

Scopeys East Croydon tasting. Big thanks to Paul for bagging this one and sharing it! Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Mildly sour nose. Crisp dry palate. Mild woody and mild fruity sourness - trace of vinegar. Trace of white wine. Dry finish. Ok - there was much serious nodding of heads going on for this one from people I respect and who know beer, whereas yours truly was mostly scratching his. I mean I like this beer and I would happily have it again but I’m not getting this upper 4 wow factor at all. If I live to be a 100 - I may never fully understand this style!
