phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), - JUL 8, 2012
75cl bottle from 2006. Hazy golden peach flesh colored pour with some small bubbles. Aroma is very sweet. Ripe orange, tangerine and pineapple is prominent in this very fruity lambic. Musty oak, brett notes and barnyard, a surprising vanilla element. Huge horseblanket and funkiness .Grapefruit. Very funky all over, but the lovely fruitiness is most prominent. Taste is similar, though a lot more brett-forward and leathery, a grape-like dry bitterness from the brett in the far back of the mouth. It is tart, but balanced by a good sweetness, and it comes off lighter in tartness than many other geuzes. Very light in carbonation, smooth texture, very nice mouthfeel. Thicker texture than other geuzes, a bit oily. I lile this one a lot.

Camons (8740) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle @ Home. Pours slightly hazy golden, no head. Aroma of light sourness, leather, grapes, wood, barnyard, citrus, lemon. Flavor is light sourness, malt, wet wood, tart fruity, wine grapes, citrus, leather, dusty. Medium body, flat carbonation, light acidic finish. The lack of carbonation gives it a light winelike feel to drink. 020116

ctipping (710) - Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2015
750 mL bottle. Bottled 12/7/2006. Originally reviewed 4/6/2013. Orange body. Clear without much head. Thin collar. Smell is standard Drie Fonteinen funk. Bright lemon acidity. Barnyard funk. Nice. Taste is a bright lemony sour flavor. Funky, but not as much as standard 3F. Lots of pale malt and wheat. Low carbonation, slick and not overly sour. Slightly sweet. Nothing compared to Oude Geuze, but a great lambic.

Maakun (2345) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle shared at home. Slight hazy dark golden without any head. Apple, apricot, peach, pineapple, overripe mango, quite some funk, light lactic notes, sherry, light wood and vanilla, light leaves and berry pits. Light sweet and very light bitter and sourness. Medium bodied with no carbonation. Very interesting stuff, way more sweet and fruity than the regular gueuze.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Pours dark straw color. No carbonation. Some prickly mouthfeel from seemed still beer. Definitely to style. Aroma of tart grape skins and oak. Smells like bar wood and cellar winery. Flavor is subtle oak and big tartness. Finishes very dry and brandy wine like. Very nice.

MichaelAwesome (6157) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2015
Zur Perfektion hat nur etwas Frische und ein guter Schuss Perlung gefehlt. Gut, auch die hier vorhandene Säure und Fruchtigkeit kann man doch besser. Ansonsten Balance in hefe, frucht, säure und Volumen. Sehr gut, einfach nur sehr gut.

Bottle from fonefan - my Summer Santa. The lambic has got a hazy golden-strawy colour with a flat body and no head. Aroma of mild vinegar, mild acid, straw. Taste of mild acid, mild unripe berries, oak, mild vinegar. Sourness is well-balanced. Enjoyed it.

Clear flat sour goodness. Oak and barnyard yeast readiness. Really tart and mildly floral. Finishes super dry and oaky. Excellent!
