kermis (9880) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2014
Bottle shared at DHVL side by side with Blauw. Pours hazy dark golden with a big off white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, light wet dog and old laundry (in a good way). Flavour is light moderate acidic, fairly soft in the mouthfeel. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Great, but not up to the Blauw.

Bottle(both as j&j roze and akkurats 50/50 ouse gauze). Dark golden pour with tan head. Funky sours, some light floral, and tart fruit aromas. Flavor is funky and has sour tones, albeit a bit milder than the other 3F rarer guezes.

cfrances33 (35) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle poured into a 3F stem. Enjoyed 12/7/2013. Pour is a deep orange, with two fingers of off white, frothy head. Head retains for a while, and leaves some nice lacing. Smell is incredible, and easily the highlight of this beer - bright, juicy tropical fruits (mango, papaya), some lemony bite, and wrapped up in a clean, musty funk (cobwebs, basement, some hay). Taste is impressive, but not as much so as the nose. More tropical fruits that are slightly subdued. A nice lemony bite, and a delicious mineral funk. Finish develops this floral, grassy, perfume aspect that is enjoyable, but mildly offputting. Quite drinkable, with a medium level of sourness. Finish is dry. A top notch geuze that was a pleasure to have, but falls short of Blauw but quite a bit.

teorn88 (5865) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
75cl bottle at Akkurat as Oude Geuze 50/50. It pours a golden/light amber colour with a large white head. Aroma is nice and complex: wet wood, strong funkyness with fruitiness and some spiciness. Nice acidic notes, recalling the classic cheesey and horseblankety notes. Taste is rich with strong funkyness again and tartness with some yogurt-like sweetness. Huge citrus and lemon peel notes. Grassy notes in the background. Some wood and fruit too. Mostly dry finish. Palate is creamy, silky, with good carbonation. So easy to drink. This is rounded, complex, very good but preferred the Gold version tries side by side.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Bottle from a tasting two years ago. Label thanks to Thomas! Thank you! I’ve been looking for this for two years! Pours orange. Nose and taste of aged cheese, woody funk, oak and light barnyard. Medium body. A bit dryer on the palate than Blauw.

mcberko (13023) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2013
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 (4362) - 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 it’s home.
(From 75cL bottle @ De Heeren van Liedekercke)

jbeatty (1240) - New York, USA - MAR 18, 2013
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 (6825) - 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 it’s sibling but still offers really nice flavors. Very nice lambic.
