pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, - APR 23, 2013
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 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.

Klimaet (294) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle. Thanks Bursprak! Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. Aromas of green sour apples, stable, leather, barnyard, light grapes. Taste is sour green apples, light grapes, barnyard, slight vinegar, sourdough and slight leather. Complex - amazing!

JohnnyJ (4539) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 9, 2014
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 (1058) - 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.

rbrazell (1702) - 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.

[5604-20130722] 750mL bottle. Dry yeasty pencil shavings aroma. Hazy, orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Sour lightly lemon-fruited zest flavour. Medium body is quite sour. Delicious. (8/4/8/4/17) 4.1

biggsbowler (374) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2014
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!!!

djd07 (3877) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2014
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.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2014
Traditional geuze made from old Boon lambic and old 3 Fonteinen lambic, among others. Stable, snow white head, cloudy orangey blonde colour, warm. Complex aroma of apple peel, wine vinegar, sour cream, kiwi, wheat, sherry, wet hay, lemon juice and lambic barnyard funkiness. Sharp citric acid in onset, not wry, beautifully rounded, sweaty and hay-like impressions, palate tending more towards a more gentle lactic acidity in the finish with some dry, leafy hoppiness, refreshing and very thirst-quenching, complex. Another masterpiece from one of my favorite lambic producers.

TheEpeeist (3399) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2014
25.4 oz bottle. Clear honey brown with brief white foam. Nose is bubblegum, leather, wet hay, lemon, stone fruit and pasture. Crisp and acidic but softening then dry. Taste is green apple, honeydew, herb stems, leather, flower petals, lime zest and citrus honey. Wild depth of flavor like a spring walk ending in a raspberry patch.
