TheAlum (6935) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Sampled at the CCB/RateBeer/Pre-Hunah Tasting (Tampa, FL). Pours a well hazed amber hue, darker haziness, frothy tannish head dies to a good film, laces ok. Aromas are lemony, bready, straw and lemon. Crab apple, lactic elements. Some bready malts, a touch deadened. Some straw. Gentle oak. Initial is a touch sweeter, well balanced, with oak, bready, straw, good lemon and yogurt. Gentle rind. Middle is a touch sweet, straw, yogurt, and oak. Nice sourness sustains, bretty backend and oak, straw. Touches of flavorful fruit, straw, florals. A bit more muted. A tasty Gueuze, solid all around. A touch behind Lente. Nice fruit. Tasty.

KnutAlbert (6675) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. Mouthwatering geuze aroma. Lemon, vinegar, peaches and apricots. A great blend, worthy of the name, the hype and the price.

Sigmund (6646) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2011
Shared bottle, RBNAG 2011. Golden colour. Difficult to distinguish this from the Lente, but Zomer is slightly less woody and even more lemony in both aroma and flavour.

Strykzone (6642) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Sampled at Shep’s Diaper Party. A big tick here and a good one! Begins with a blast of funk in the mouth that quickly settled and all kinds of interesting stuff emerged. Lemon and grass, citrus, must, and at the finish, salt. Really good.

tiong (6390) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2014
750ml bottle @ Kaisla, Helsinki

Pours murky orange with a large foamy white head. Aroma of sour berries, tartness, earthy notes, rowenberries and hints of apricot. Taste is smooth, pleasant, slightly sourish and tartish with notes of rowenberries, apricot, sweetness and earthy notes. Finish is surprisingly soft and smooth, slightly sour and tartish with some berry notes. Quite pleasant and balanced gueuze. Tasty stuff.
