MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle @ tasting, 2006 vintage. This vintage really seems to find it’s way around here and popping up everywhere.. Pours a clear orange beer without any head. Aroma is oak, sherry and very vineous. Big fruity base with some age on it. Flavor is light sour, age took off the edges from this one, oaky and bretty. Really refreshing after some massive barrel aged imperial stouts. Very nice, balanced brew. Good stuff.

Bottle courtesy of MrHangover. Poured a cloudy dark amber with a round white head. The aroma is smooth acid vinegar citrus. The flavour is medium sour with a big vinegar palate. Light bodied with flat carbonation. A nice beer to taste and fine in small quantities, but the vinegar starts to dominate eventually and i’m not a big vinegar fan.

2006 vintage. 75cl bottle at home. Pours murky brown with no head at all. Aroma is vinegar, funk, some tart, some fruits and some basement. Light to medium sour and medium sweet. Might be past it’s best date. No carbonation.

esox (1034) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Bottled 07/12/2006. Hazy orange, almost no head. Complex, quite sharp aroma. It has red currants, wood, vanilla, eucalyptus, earthy leaves and wet leather. Musty, sourish flavor is medium dry. Lots of acidity, like fresh grapefruit juice with a touch sugar. Woody and herbal finish with leather and berry skins, good tannins. A touch of vanilla and delicate perfumes in the very late finish. Medium body, flat texture. Sophisticated and delicious. Complex yet easy to drink. Well aged.

Funkig och härlig. Viss kärvhet. Kärv. Tröttnar efter några hundra klunkar men bra att bryta av med ...

jookos (2064) - FINLAND - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle. Slightly darker orange, hazy. Malty and funky. Overripe apples, hay. Pretty much everything you’d expect from a good gueuze. Dry, but not that acidic. A wonderful beer, probably what I’d choose as a prototype for the style. Nothing really sticking out, just overall nice.
