75cl at Gaasa. Pours deep golden with a white head. Aroma of barnyard and horse blanket with some malt, brett and wheat. Pretty sour, but very refreshing. Some sweetness is noticable when it gets more temperature. Dry, bitter, citric and sour finish and aftertaste. Delicious!

A fantastic geuze! Fresh, dry, wide palette and well-balanced, and not too sour.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Bottle @ Bishops Arm Stockholm. I had to fork out a pretty penny to try this one, but fuck it. It pours a hazy golden orange appearance with a medium sized, light tan head. Super funky, incredibly cheesy, parmesan, intensely sour, lemon, moderately oaky, mild vanilla, basement aroma. There is a moderate sourness to the flavor but not what I expected and really just more of a strong acidity. Very funky, barnyard, unripe lemon citrusy, light tangerine, a bit tannic, mild woody, quite acidic flavor. Fairly smooth, dry, funky, lemon finish. Very nice beer but probably a bit young at this point. I tried a 3 Fonteinen Oude Gueze Vintage 2005 two days ago and found it more developed and complex. That being said, this was a real treat to drink. Update: Fuck yeah. Shared by Armin on 7/20/2013. A lot more developed, cheesy, funky beer. Delicious.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2012
Gusher. Big offwhite lasting head. Hazy opaque orange body. Funky citrusy earthy aroma with barnyard notes. Dry-acidic citric wooden barnyard taste with metallic earthy notes. Mid-to-thin body. Sharp mouthfeel. Dry-acidic orangey tropical fruit and earthy metal aftertaste with wooden barnyard notes. The sharp, strong aftertaste really burns in, and feels great. Interesting combination of the hard metal/wood/earth flavour with softer C-hop style flavours. Reminiscent of Oud Beersel. Excellent! (0.75l bottle at Amundsen, Oslo.)

750ml bottle pours a burnt gold with a cloudy white head. Nose is peppery, horsey, brett, hay, grass, white grape, lemon. Flavor is smooth, lemon, grapefruit rind, dandelion greens. Full bodied, zesty, tart finish. Awesome. Loved every bit of this.

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
75.5cl at the Craft Beer Co. Slight gusher. It pours a slightly hazy golden/orange colour with a big white head. Foam dissipates quickly. Aroma is funky and lemony. Citrus, zest, lemon zest and cat piss. Taste is sweet-acidic, mostly sour. Citrus, dust, slight bitterness, funky and lemony. Mouthfeel is thin to medium with high carbonation. Overall, a great gueuze, but falls a bit shy of the Armand’4 series to me.

Rare bottle provided by Tom at Craft Beer Co. Hazy amber, white head. Nose is fresh cut granny smith apples sourness, pear, light green fruit. Taste is light, delicate and fresh granny smith apples, cider, sour. More delicate and less rustic than others but also lighter and fruitier.
