750 ml bottle, 1989, courtesy of ygtbsm94 - thanks Brad! Pours golden color, still a few bubbles after all these years. Aroma of citrus, dust, peach, apricot. Taste is sour and acidic, dusty, dry, bleu cheese. Outstanding.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2008 Bottle, 75cl corked, at Plan B, Copenhagen. Thx to MiP. An orange, unclear beer with a minimal white head. Funky nose with horseblanket and citrus. Citrus, mostly lemon, dominates the flavor, tart and funky, medium mouthfeel, very astringent. Very long lemony finish. A gorgeous beer, intensely sour and citric, a real palate cleanser. RAting: 8-4-8-4-17-4.1. (080913)

Bottled at RBESG-06, GTN. (1999 vintage, thx Jacob.) Hazy, orange beer with some white bubbles around the rim. Sourness, yeast, cellar, apples, grass and citrus in the aroma. The flavor is wonderful, intensely sour, with citrus, apples, grass and lemon. Really palate-cleansing. Vauw! It kicks you in your mouth and throat. Amazing! Almost too much. (060826)

harrisoni (15317) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2007
75cl bottle at Heeren van Liederkerke. 1999 bottle no. 05164. Orange/gold with lasting beige head. Bit of musty age on aroma. That is quite sour. The age has taken a certain edge off it, but it does have malt vinegar notes on the end. Too sour on end. Nice up front farmyard, but way too much vinegar.

Dedollewaitor (14811) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
My Rating # 2100. 75cl bottle. Pours unclear golden with a small head & lacings. Nose is dry, tart, vinegar & leather. Woody & crisp. Oily & sticky palate. Fruity taste - some orange, tartness & lovely oakyness. Just as good as hoped for. Thanks to the guys at Plan B!

Bottled@RBESG’06. Vintage 1999. Orange color, no head. Sour, slightly earthy, trefoil and hints of hay and barnyard. Sour, fruity, very wineous taste. Acidic fruity flavors make this very enjoyable. Long fruity-sour aftertaste. Masterpiece - thanks Jacob!

brokensail (13616) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 29, 2012
This is the 1989 vintage. Pours a hazed golden orange color with a small white head. A definite cork aroma, but not really detrimental. Quite lactic with a pleasant funky quality. Lots of grass and green apple skins, musty as well. Lactic tartness is evident, but there is a mild vinegar note. Surprising amounts of oak with some mild cork flavors. Quite a bit of lemon, grass, and apple. Overall, a nice (old) gueuze.
