75 cl bottle @ home. Bottled on 17.02.2011
Aroma is sour and tart with lots of earthy notes and grapefruit. Palate is too high on CO2. Flavour is really sour with grapefruit, earthy notes, some peppery spices and hints of orange. Hardcore stuff.

Bottle at Himmeriget. Pours cloudy orange with a minute head. Aroma is funky citrus, horseblanket, slight vanilla, oak, slight pepper. Taste is fluffy citrus, mild pepper, oak, lemon tart. Slightly too ’gassy’ mouthfeel.

RBWG16. Big thanks to Ferris for sharing. The bottle pours out with a hazy deep copper body that has golden hues and supports a near white head. The aroma offers up tartness yeastiness lemon and a bit of vinegar. The taste delivers neat yet somewhat abrasive lemon and berry like tartness. It then picks up modest vinegar notes. This is abrasive puckering and forward tartness.

Enfin! Très content de boire le fruit de cette collaboration entre M. Debelder et Tommy (tom10101). Merci les gars! Superbe robe et longue dentelle. Nez fantastique, funky avec de la paille, des notes citronnées et boisées, comme un poème, plutôt dans la sensation et non dans la compréhension. Le goût est fruité, complexe, tellement agréable, si facile, chorégraphié, la quintessence de la gueuze. La bouche montre le temps et l’expertise tandis que la finale exhibe le sublime.

Bottle at RBWG 2016 big thanks to jackl for cracking a want beer. Nose us very acidic with light lemon. A bit of light diaper notes. Hazy deep orange pour. Taste is just a fantastically tart lemon with a dominant hay and barn funkiness. A light chest thump but always balanced by a malty awesomeness.

"Tommy" LOL, probably misspelled because Armand got some flat Angels Share. What a tiiiiiiiiick!!!! Slightly hazy golden with a great lasting white head. Funky, gueuzey aroma, major yard in there, gross, nasty, disgusting, revolting sweat from under the month-old saddle of a horse. Amazing. Gross, vomit-inducing, incredibly tasty. Deep barnyard funk. Sweaty, cheesy, moldy, delicious aged gym sock from a dirty, disease-ridden, Alabama swamp-dwelling donkey. Unwashed stank from the crease between a camel’s humps. Ram’s piss, and shit if you can drink that you can drink anything. Finish hints of a llama farm. Musk ox or similar Mongolian pack animal. Sweat from an overweight overworked brewer reading emails about flat Angels Share after a long hard day of brewing yet more FLAT FREAKING ANGELS SHARE. Rind of a Tomme cheese. Spelled that one right. Medium body, nice carb - YOU DID IT TOMMY CONGRATULATIONS YOU MUST BE THE EXPERT MARK HAHA OH HAI DOGGY sorry Tommy - or Tomme? - Wiseau from The Room best movie ever reference. TICK OUT!
