750mL bottle at Akkurat, pours a cloudy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of barnyard funk, with more of a floral quality than Blauw; there is some tart citrusy character and some horse blanket. Flavour brings out loads of barnyard funk, some feint leather, a little horse blanket, and some light floral notes. Not as complex as Blauw by a little, but extremely funky and quite floral. Very dry on the palate, with only slight tartness. Another world class gueuze here.

Martinus (4317) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2013
Slightly hazy orange golden colour, firm white head. Aroma of barn, wood, tart, fresh citrus, yoghurt and funk. Sour flavour, citrus, lactic acid, wood, astringent. Astringent finish, wood and citrus.
Lovely beer. Very drinkable, even while 9,5 years old. Bonus point given for the sheer joy of tasting it at itís home.
(From 75cL bottle @ De Heeren van Liedekercke)

Bottle, thanks to jeffo for picking up, 03/18/2013. Pours golden amber, maybe copper, thin white head settles to few hazy wisps on the surface, thin ring of lacing. Aroma has bitter red fruit, kiwi, soft tartness overall, lemon peel, touch of honey with sour malts, spicy barnyard funk. Taste is spicy, grassy and floral, grapefruit with orange peel and juicy, lightly sour citrus, soft funky notes,mild bleu cheese, oak, dry finish. Light palate, though low carbonation lends some depth. Very different from Blauw which was tasted yesterday- more restrained, less sour, more floral, yet still nuanced by itself with this unique flavor profile. So, outstanding.

TheAlum (6650) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Sampled at the CCB/RateBeer/Pre-Hunah Tasting (Tampa, FL). Pours a richer deep hazy amber, good deeper hues in the body. A frothy offwhite head atop dies to a film, laces ok. Darker body. Aromas are tart, a bit more muddled. Lemon, bready malts, funk, and sweet tarts. Some lemon, gentle sweetness, a lot less pop. A rich fruit presence, but less vibrant. Initial is more rich, tart melon and white grape, bigger grapefruit rind and fruit, juice with lemons. Richer tartness, sour fruit. Nice beer, offering funk, straw, gentle yeast and oak into the backend. It lacks the intensity of itís sibling but still offers really nice flavors. Very nice lambic.

Leighton (16268) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2012
Bottle shared at Mikkeller Bar after Day Two of the Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Pours hazy gold with a fine, white head. Plenty of grassy bitterness in there, lots of softened sourness. A touch musty. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. A bit of dough. Nice and smooth. Crisp, lightly biting sourness to finish. Great stuff.

I donít even know where to begin with the thanks. Sean (Sean9689) decided to pull out this beer I thought Iíd never get to try. Massive thanks Sean!!!! 750 ml bottle served in a Portsmouth tulip. A: Pours a hazy golden amber color with a frothy white head that leaves some sticky, splotchy lace as it slowly makes its way down the glass. S: Thereís really a lot going on in this nose. Sweet and tart berry. Some slight tangy blueberry, sweaty funk and some mild oak. T: More berry combination. Tart blueberry, sweet strawberry, and a mildly sour lemon grass. Oaky vanilla sweetness with some nice funky after tones. M: medium to light bodied with a nice carbonation. The finish is drying and refreshing at the same time. O: Well a huge thanks Sean (again) for busting out this rarity. It was still incredibly delicious and vibrant after all this time and it was treat to have. Iím very happy to have knocked this off my "never going to have" list. But Sean wasnít done with this one... Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-19-2012

Bottle at Akkurat (labeled as Akkuratís Oude Geuze 50/50). Almost clear, orange liquid with minimal white head. Aroma of 3F funk (barnyard, light sweat), sweet orange peel, lemon and some light apple. Taste is dry and medium sour with nice balance and light funk. Light to medium bodied with light to medium carbonation. Nice, but I prefer Blauw. Not as complex but nearly as balanced.

(750ml bottle during RBWG thanks to ericandersnavy) cloudy orange pour with fine white bubbles. Nose of charred wood, currant, tart, delicious. Taste of wet barrel, cranberry, chewable vitamins.
