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.

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.

Bottle, 75cl corked. Looking more or less clear in the glass, dark golden in color, and completely without any head. The aroma is funky and barnyardish, with horse blanket and some lemony hints. A faint rubber touch pulls my score from 8 to 7 on aroma, but itís more or less gone in the flavor, hence the 8. Nice funky flavor with some lemon, as well as horse blanket and barnyard, tart and medium bodied and pleasantly carbonated. A super-smooth and tasteful beer, thatís for sure. 111229

750ml bottle consumed at Akkurat. Pours a hazy, deep orange with some foamy, fading white head. Nose is wonderful, lots of citrus rind, lemon and grapefruit, tons of grass and hay, funky, band aid, some crab apple, white grape. Flavor is tart but not overly acidic, slightly medicinal, refreshing citrus, grapefruit, blood orange, lime, grass, hay, light leather, a little scallion, a distinct wormwood character. Tart, zesty, refreshing finish. Hasnít aged too much. Drinking wonderfully right now.

750ml bottle at De Heeren van Liedekerke. Pours a hazy, deep gold with a thin, creamy white head. Nose is grassy, musty, funk, lemon rind, herbs. Very inviting. Funk and barnyard, cheese. All of that lovely brett nose while still quite approachable. Flavor is tart, herbal, musty, lemon rind, orange rind, cheese rind, flower pollen, grass. Really has the flavor of an earthy, grassy cheese rind. Full bodied, lightly tart, lightly acidic finish. Worth all the hype, a really special brew.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 Bottle @ Stephenís house, courtesy of skycracksopen. Thanks again! Cloudy orange appearance with an off white head. Quite funky, fairly floral, somewhat herbal, musty, tangy lemon, effervescent aroma. Refreshing, deliciously sour, quite cheesy, floral funky, earthy, dusty, musty flavor. Tons of must and cheese. Fuck yeah.
