Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle @ Too many Geuze’s - only one toilet , Ulfborg 2012 - Day 1. Bing bang and gusher :) Dark golden, with white head. Grape , lemon, cellar notes, dust, barnyard, wood, leather. So complex yet so well balanced and easy drinkable. Again I would expect it to be must more sour, but the amount is just right and perfect for the taste.

gyllenbock (4549) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle at Akkurat, January 2012. Cloudy orange body topped by a small off-white head that did not last for a long time. A complex and not very sour Gueuze. Lemon, oak, dry wood, green apples, little bit of everything. Very, very drinkable and elegant. I must drink this again!

Drank at Akkurat on the longest lambic binge I could endure. Had with many of the classics and enjoyed this beer twice. The one bottle was the best beer I have ever had and was absolutely perfect, reviewed based from that. Pour is a hazy golden amber with tight fluffy white head. The nose has a rindy cheese to it, light dusty paper quality as fruits are unfolded. Lemon rind, hint of mint, bright ripe tangerine and peach notes. The taste has slightly less chessy find and a touch more dusty paper, the fruit flavors are even more bright and take stronger hold on the presence of the beer. more peaches with a little less of the tart lemon than I anticipated as the sourness takes hold and adds to the overall awesomeness and complexity of this beer. The body is extremely light, lovely effervescent feel, high crisp carbonation and just enough driness. Mid to late bottle pour is more funky, early pour is more fruity. Absolutely perfect!

hopscotch (9065) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Bottle… Murky golden ale with a mid-sized creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet is funky, citric and acidic with a slight medicinal component – inoffensive, but not quite right. Medium-bodied and a touch thin with soft carbonation. Well-balanced flavor. Tart, but not sour with moderate, yeasty bitterness and a nuance of lemon peel. Tangy, mildly bitter finish that dries out nicely. Muchos kudos to Dstructo for sharing this rare old gem!
