Bottle thanks to Aaron. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong funk, feet, barnyard, oak. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart fruit and funk with light brett and oak. Really enjoyed this one, very impressive.

Bottle - Pour very light amber. The aroma is sour, tart, and lemony. The taste is lemony, sour, spruce, and a tad acidic. Just a solid beer!!!

Bottle thanks to Seb! Pours a solid golden color with a frothy white head and tiny bubbles. Nose is lemon rind, lime, and stale orange juice. Taste is lively with funk, mineral, mint, lime and some cheese on the end. Light bodied with high carbonation. A delicious geuze blend!

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2015 Bottle split 5 ways, cork opens with a huge pop. Light amber pour with some lacings on top. Green apples, lemon peel, leather, oak, vanilla, apple skin and some barnyard notes. Nice and mellow! Liked this one slightly better than OGV ’08.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle at Edmunds Oast. Slight haze on a bright golden pour with a bubbly white head. Complex, nuanced aroma of oak wood, sourdough, pizza shop, earth, lemon peels, and tart acid. Flavor is wonderfully balanced with lemon, musty earth, oaky wood, yeast funkiness and Sauvignon Blanc aspects. Lively carbonation and medium bodied. Fantastic.

Bottle. Semi hazy dark amber pour, with a white head. Aroma is very pungent funk, it burns the back of the nose with horse blanket and hay. Flavors of lemon grass, wet hay, green apple, leather, white grape, white vinegar, oak, wheat grain, and sourdough. Complex and delicious.

tmrmwel (1290) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle, 2011/02/17. Pours clear dark golden with an enormous head receding to a creamy two finger thickness. Quintessential gueuze aroma, with brett and barnyard, an amazing assortment of berries, wooden barrels and corn fields stretching from here to eternity. Lovely! Full body with quite soft carbonation. Flavour is, well… nice, sour and complex. Here’s sour fruits with green apples and grapes, nice bretty notes and hay, with a lingering astringent finish.

Bouteille 75cl, bottled 2011/02/17. Partagée avec Omgrich et Sarro. Merci de m’avoir donné l’occasion pour l’ouvrir. De couleur orangée sur un léger trouble, le col reste épais tirant vers un ton légèrement blanc-cassé. Arôme offre de suite le caractère 3F avec pas mal de funk, les notes de lambics sont toutes la avec un bouquet fruité sec, légèrement herbacé et un rétro de cave humide sur une pointe acidulé. L’ajout de Boon indique peut être ce fini très sec. Palais sec avec une effervescence assez active pour une bouteille de presque 4 ans. Un léger fruité se mêle aux notes acidulés des levures sauvages. Retrouve le caractère prononcé des lambics. Pointe de rustique pour une gueuze agréable mais qui manque de tomber dans l’exceptionnel.
