750ml green bottle, corked. Bottle is dated 2011/02/17. Hazy golden coloured brew, pours with quite a large foamy cap that settles to a small layer of white foam on top with a tight creamy bead. Nose has bright acidic lemon notes. Tate is lemony, tart, sour. Some great funkiness in the finish, light woody note, long lingering lemony tang, then total dryness. Medium body with lots of carbonation. Bright and vibrant gueuze.

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!

Bottle opened by Toni at Erzbierschof Zurich, thanks! Pours orange with a fairly big, white head. Smell: FUNK! Also some grapes, brett, farmhouse. Taste is similar with some dust, some gentle sourness. Very enjoyable!

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is really well balanced with nice herbal notes, some light lemon acidity, medium oak. Hints of overripe tropical fruit and stone fruit skins. Some light alcohol as it warms with more barnyard funk coming through. Pours a fairly clear golden straw color with a large, white head that shows good retention as it recedes and lingers on the edges. No lacing or legs. Flavor is moderately acidic with some nice oak notes. Light lemon with a bit of pineapple and tropical fruit. Medium light bitterness. Some herbal notes with moderate barnyard funk. Again, very well balanced. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a very nice beer and a very well balanced geuze. Nice barnyard funk, acidity, herbal notes and fruit.

October 23, 2015 - taster glass sample at Darkness Eve. Thanks to Tom for getting a mega pour of this and having some to share with me. Relatively well balanced and easy to drink.
