Dedollewaitor (13923) - 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!

harrisoni (13737) - 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.

1999 bottle, 5.2%. Yeasty and funky aroma, good citricness. Cloudy orange colour, no head. Good sour flavour, slightly funky. Quite vinegary, dry finish.

yngwie (13575) - 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)

Theis (13411) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2008
Bottle #5893 (Thanks to Jacob) at Bagers - NewYears evening. Cloudy amber - white edges. Grape, earthy, high sourness, light light bike-glue & balsamic vinegar karakter, hugh dryness, a bit candy sweetness.

Oakes (12626) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2009 1999 bottling. Cloudy orange-amber. Cheesy, tangy gueuze aroma...yeah, this is going to be good. Rich, earthy, tart depths of passion fruit, lemon, hay and leather. Huge complexity - a gueuze that shows me new things. At this stage of aging, a classic.

Belle Vue Fond Gueuze 1988. Muddy tan/light brown colour. Light funk, cheese and phenols on the nose. Very earthy palate. Flat. Complex and tart with a long finish. This is extra dry and deliciously dusty. 2-7-8-5-18 = 4.0

TBone (12548) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2006
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!

bu11zeye (11943) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2007
(750ml Bottle, 1999 vintage) Pours a lightly hazy orange body with a spare ring of white bubbles. A complex gueuze aroma of grapefruit, lemon, vinegar, apple, earthiness, musty, and white grapes. The flavor smacks you in the face with the intensity of the tartness that after once taste makes your taste buds stand up for attention like basic training solders for their drill sergeant. The tartness lingers even after several minutes in between sips allowing you to savor the magical experience endured. An absolutely fantastic brew at a unbelievable tasting that I will certainly not forget.

Travlr (11932) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 27, 2010
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.
