Habanero (3081) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
Bottled. Pours a hazy amber with an average, off-white head. Aroma of brett, notes, barnyard, some citrus, caramel and dried fruit. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and a little tart. Medium body, watery o oilytexture and soft carb, A very nice and smooth Lambic.

tectactoe (3076) - Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2013
UPDATED: APR 16, 2015 Bottle: Thanks, Mike. Enjoyed side by side with Zomer. Pours like bright copper pipe that has been scraped and cleaned with wire brush; foamy, fizzling white head, big bubbled, gone within a few moments. Aroma is outrageously funky, tart, and fruity. Tart lemon, barnyard, sweaty funk, musty cork and cellar floors, sharp apple skins, vinegar and acidity about, gets your saliva glands rolling. Taste is more of the same, funky lemons, tart and sweaty yeast clumps, wet oak, horseblanket, sour stone fruits, white grape skins, a hint of vinegar and more finishing acidity. Sharp, acidic mouth feel with a dry, dry, dry finish; prickly and effervescent on the palate. So damn good, funk and tartness that can’t be replicated.

Marsiblursi (3045) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2011 (Bottle) Pours hazy dark golden to amber with an off-white head. The aroma is of tart pineapple esters, Thai-food (coconut milk, lemon grass and mild chilly), rubber, peppery mold, wood, cheese, smoke/incense, horse blanket, celery, new cut grass, rhubarb, lime, lemon and grapefruit. The nose is well-balanced and well-structured. The flavor is dry and medium to heavily acidic with almost no bitterness. Tones of citrus, light fruits, light brett, lacto, wood, cheese and mold. Bit too much “pukeiness”. The mouthfeel is soft and tart with a light to medium carbonation. Citric and bretty finish. Near medium bodied.

RexTalionis (2963) - FINLAND - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle 75 cl, BBE 2020. Pours hazy orange in color with a frothy whitish head. Notes of apples, vinegar and light stable. Creamy mouthfeel. Very sophisticated. The sharpness of geueze is for sure there, but yet it feels so smooth in taste. Creamy, apples in aftertaste and some garden almost spicyness is there. Nice slightly sour finish.

BOLTZ7555 (2939) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle shared at Dak’s tasting. 24 karat pour with a nice 1/4 inch head that melds into just a whispy white cloud. Aroma of grape, lemonpeel, grass, earth and funk. Pretty assertive aroma, more so than the flavor. Flavor is light and refreshing. Great for a hot AZ day...a little jaw locking power with tart Jolly Rancher, citrus pith, lemon drops, maybe a little peach/tangerine and barnyard. Pretty dry and a little dusty. Really tasty!

The_Osprey (2916) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015

Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. With huge thanks to Beersiveknown. Cloudy hazy orange, small ring of white head. Aroma is spicy with dirty, earthy lemon notes. Body is medium, very foamy, low-ish carbonation. Taste is very, very sour and bretty. Lemon, vinegar, acidic. I know I’m a heretic when it comes to sours, but my palate isn’t there yet I’m afraid! Very pleased to try it though.

BenH (2890) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle. Amber with white head. Aroma is full on funk, 3 fonteinen house character, musty, earthy, almost smokey. Taste is more of the same, funky, musty. Moderate sour with a long finish. Top stuff

50belair (2868) - Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Bottle. Pale orange pour with a huge white head. A bit of a gusher. All kinds of lemon zest, mild funk, and citrus aromas. The taste pretty much follow suit. A very polished geuze with fantastic balance. Kudos Armand.....
