piscator34 (2284) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, - JAN 4, 2013
Bottled sample shared with oakbluff. Gold in colour with haze and strong spritzy carbonation. Aromas are of Meyer lemon, wintergreen?, wet wood, and barnyard. Woody upfront in the mouth, along with funk, nettles, and a bit of iron. Moderately weighted body, with a good tart to sour balance. Not as refined as the Lente, but still very good.

ineedbeer (1665) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Aroma is interesting with some light malt notes. Decent herbal character with a light earthiness. Some grassy character with light citrus. Light notes of over ripe stonefruit. Pours a hazy, golden copper color with a small, white head that shows good retention as it recedes to the edges. Light lacing and small legs. Slightly darker than Lente. Flavor is nice with a soft acidity and mineral character. Decent herbal character with a nice bright citrus notes. Some light over ripe stone fruit notes and light oak. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high to high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nicer beer than Lente. Bright citrus notes with decent herbal notes. light oak, very nice.

neongolden (1127) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2015
(750ml bottle @ DHVL, Liedekerke, Nov 16 2015, split w/ phyllomedusa) Pours a fairly hazy orange-gold with a big fluffy white head and loads of lace. Aroma is cut wildflowers and wet grass with wet, spring mulch funk and hints of wood and underripe pit fruit. A bit musty but in a fresh way? Freshness continues on the palate which again is loaded with cut flowers, dandelion greens, mache, wet hay; light lime, a touch of oak. Mildly acidic finish repeats lime juice, more cut flowers, beautifully leafy. Just the right acidic bite. Light to medium crisp body, fairly high effervescent carbonation. Love how grassy and floral this is, with some fruit as well and a well-moderated supporting funk. Super refreshing and drinkable, maybe just not quite as standout as Lente. Splitting hairs!

ctipping (1040) - Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2015
750 mL bottle. Bottle dated 3/26/2010. Unknown original review date. Another gusher. Orange and hazy with a big head. Better retention than Lente, but otherwise a similar looking beer. Bigger funk aroma to this than Lente. Less citrus, but has more of a distinct orange aroma. The funk is like an aged [not sure what I wrote]. Very nice and distinctly different from Lente. Heavy funk flavor. Much heavier than Lente. Verging on a vinegar acidity. Dry and less fruity than I’d like. Herbal hops in the finish. Dry. Cottonmouth dry, really. Puckering from the dryness, but not really from the sourness. Not as high in carbonation. Good, but a step down from Lente. Hefty funk character that actually makes it feel a little sluggish.

SpongeRuiner (1103) - Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Huge thanks to whoever opened this. Maybe Tony. If not an associate. Pours a foggy gold color. A quick dissipating white head. A big funky nose. A lot of fruit flavors. A funky flavor in the end. Really drinkable. Great.

Bottle shared 4ways @ Mikkeller Bar Victoriagade. Pours a deep amber with a white head. Aroma has fairly sweet floral notes, barn yard, funk, peach, vanilla, grape fruit sorbet (??). Taste is very dry, tart, lots of grapes, very funky, juicy yet dry. High carbonation, light and crisp body.

Bottle at Zwanze Day Zurich. Not quite as good as the Lente, but still an amazing geuze. Less punchy.

Orange with solid foam layer. The smell has parts of old feet and sourness. The taste is medium sour with a lively carbonation. The aftertaste has a sour and weirdly mild layer.
