piscator34 (2182) - 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.

ctipping (548) - 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 (1008) - 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.

Vestergaard (1147) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2015
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.

anstei (532) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 19, 2015
Bottle at Zwanze Day Zurich. Not quite as good as the Lente, but still an amazing geuze. Less punchy.

King_Alex_II (791) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 19, 2015
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.

SinH4 (1399) - Garching, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2015
With Toni and anstei and some others. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is grassy, pollen, hay, dried grass, a bit menthol, a bit wood. Summer, yeah. Taste is "lieblich" with a good body, good wood, bread. Foamy carbonation, the carbonation tickles a bit. Great stuff again.
