ctipping (995) - Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2015
750 mL bottle. Big head. Deep orange. Smells oxidized. Citrus. Deep oakiness. Oxidization kinda overpowers, though. Tastes brighter. Lemon. Some orange. Oxidation behind it. Oak. A little cardboard. High carbonation. Swirling helps. Oxidation is tough to get past, but itís nice.

ippopotamo36 (1485) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 28, 2015
At the multi-national tasting held in Rome-Italy on 29/08/2015 (Jow, Mortlach, ippopotamo36 and Marco). an epic sharing (bottle) of Mortlach, many thanks man! Pours golden dark cloudy color, quite bright with a big and persistent white foamy head. Nose: a bit of a vinegar (sadly), dusty, wild yeast, cheesy. Mouth: very fruity, blast of sourness, flat body. This epic beer is getting a bit too old and in descending phase, bummer!

Jow (3226) - New York, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Huge thanks to Mortlach for sharing this at Rome tasting and not one to leave beer behind I got to have a lot of a beer I never thought Iíd get to try. Orange pour slight white head. Sour wood, funky cheese and citrus on nose. Tastes of lemon, lime, basement, slight vinegar, oak, slight cheese. Imagine the age has mellowed this and itís doing great. Amazing part of amazing beer day. Thanks Luca.

Thanks Joost for helping me rate a very hard to find beer. You and your wife make great food and are extremely generous even to us American beer geeks. Enjoyed @ DHVL for 125 Euros split 2 ways. Actually, I poured a half glass for some Americans sitting beside me to also try...they also got my dregs which is great..this is an old beer and Iím not convinced the dregs would be any good.

A - Great color. A bronze color with a 2 finger dense cream-like head. fully carbed!!!

S - Smells pretty good for a bottle thatís so old. Aroma is blue cheese, lemon skin, a mild oak and light acidity.

T - Taste is good. Acidity and sour is very well balanced. Peach. Kiwi, tropical fruits and a solid lemon presence. For sure a 3F Geuze with a great overall balance despite its age.

M - Very sticky on the teeth. Really coats the mouth.

O - Very enjoyable! I was given the option to take this home and drink there and honestly, if you are going to rate a beer of this age, enjoy it at the cellar it was bought and stored in and kept for the life of the bottle. To take this away , ship it home and store @ my cellar and drink in a year might have significantly changed things. It was nice to have on-site with some good stew and cheese and frites. Prost.

markextrae (3199) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2015
My 1600 beer review. Bottle sample poured from the master himself! Finally one of my biggest wants! Poured a Fuzzy yellow golden colour with a fluffy white head. Still a lot of carbonation after all those years. Lot of musky yeast, dust, Bread, tart lemons, funk, sour acid, lot of funky barnyard, not as sour as i was expecting but boy this has such a smooth finish! Some green apples, melon, this is still true class! Maybe the best geuze iíve had. Incredible experience, the smoothest geuze iíve had. Lovely

Damico (3119) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Pours hazy unclear bubbly golden orange with a grayish white head. Aroma is sweet viney and light tarty yeast. Flavor is quite tart with subtle bitters and some grapey yeast notes with carbonation still prevalent!
