ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, - JUN 24, 2013
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a large white head, which lasts very well and leaves good lacing. The aroma has a very strong sour funk character, with plenty of weighty, savoury oak, off-dry lime and some almost rose-like floral notes. It is powerfully sour up front, with lemon, tart apple skin and black cardamom notes. A funky, leathery flavour comes in towards the mid-palate, which gains weight and body from savoury, tannic oak. Fresh, biting sourness combines with the oak in a dry finish, which leaves an oaky, leathery aftertaste. This is simply a superb beer, even better than the standard Oude Gueuze. It is powerfully sour, yet beautifully weighted and balanced. A delightful, complex gueuze.

Style et résumé: Gueuze de grande qualité.
Comment: Dégustation à Manseau.
Portrait: Une robe dorée jaune avec une mousse blanche rocailleuse. Un nez fruité avec du bois et une certaine sécheresse. Une bouche agréable, ronde et sèche à la fois. Des saveurs intenses de gueuze, classique.
Note: 8+/10

GregClow (3098) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2016
Bottle from the LCBO. Bottled 2011-02-17, purchased 2013-05-31, enjoyed 2016-06-14. Hazy reddish-orange with a very large and creamy just-off-white head. Aroma is dusty and musty, with notes of horse blanket, lemon, old books, sour milk, backing funk. Flavour is certainly sour - vinegar and lemon juice both prominent - but with a backing complexity, with notes of cracked wheat, yogourt, fresh mint, wet wood, tart raspberry, persimmon, peppery yeast, and more. Crisp and lively carbonation. Stellar stuff!

GlasgowTAD (1293) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 11, 2016
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.

Homer321 (3961) - Melboring, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2016
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.
