lusikka (6032) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2014
750 ml bottle @ Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours a a cloudy orange colour with a white head. Aroma of herbs, citrus and rowanberry jam. Flavour of very tart citrus, rowanberries, lingonberries, licorice root(!), grass and strong floral notes. Full bodied and a very tart, sour, berryish finish. Excellent stuff.

mcberko (6019) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy dark golden orange with a big off-white head. Aroma of barnyard funk and leather, though not as dry as pungent as Winter, nor with the spiciness of Lente. Flavour is super dry, with loads of leather, funk and an extremely dry mouthfeel. Very funky and full of depth. Another awesome gueuze in the series.

Bottle. Mouthwatering geuze aroma. Lemon, vinegar, peaches and apricots. A great blend, worthy of the name, the hype and the price.

DrSilverworm (6012) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2014
750ml bottle, tasted at RBSG. Totally hazy orange amber color. Thin ring of off-white head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light dry, light slick in the finish,. Awesome perfect amount of musty funky character, light citrus, light spice. All very subtle and well blended with a great amount of oak. Cool moderate tart taste, light spicy. Awesome geuze.

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2013
750mL bottle shared by a generous soul during RBWG 2013. This tied for my second favorite of the four versions. Fizzy golden pour with a nice off-white head. Funk, sour, doughiness, some barnyard and touches of lactic sourness as well. Very nice!

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 Bottle. Hazy yellow pour, white head. Lemon, citrus, funky yeast. This is killer.

75 cl bottle @ Kaisla
Slightly hazy orange color, small head. Very nice sourish notes, mild rowanberries and some grass. Flavor is somewhat sourish with berry notes and grass, mild gooseberries too. Palate is sour and crisp, long lingering tart finish, excellent and quite exciting. Top notch.

750 ml bottle in those awesome bottles from 3F. Drank almost right after the Lente. Pours a much darker amber color with a similar large white head. A rich nose of massive tannins, oaky but also some huge sour acidic notes, very distinctly aggressive. There is certainly a fruity character in those nose, it’s hard to pin down close to lemon and currants. The flavor is a massive blast of sour tart lemons, dusty, herbal tea, it leaves a long lip smacking tartness, something akin to leather and grains. Very nice. It also has the lovely dry and effervescent palate that only the greatest lambics have. Much more aggressive than the Lente in some ways, refreshing and tasty. A nice, no a amazing Summer beer.

DSG (5657) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 30, 2011
Bottle. Rating #2500. Opens with a gusher. Deep orange-amber color with a huge fluffy off-white head. Wonderful fresh aroma of oranges, lemons, grapefruits and barnyard. Great sour flavor with lots of fruits, some oak, leathery notes, touches of sweetness and an astringent bone-dry finish, more sour with bitter notes. Silky rounded mouthfeel. Delicious and quaffable. This is art.
