fiulijn (19385) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2005
Muddy blond color, poor head. Excellent Lambic. Should I say more? There is some apple fruitness in the taste; astringent. One straight, pure, lovely Lambic.

Koelschtrinker (17730) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Säuerlich vollmundiger, sehr breiter Antrunk. Die Säuerlichkeit ist hierbei absolut harmonisch und vielfältig aromatisch ohne beißend zu sein, höchstens im Nacgeschmack etwas scharf. Fruchtige Ansätze sind im Mittelteil besonders erkennbar, im Abgang eher noch Essigsäure, wobei dies gerade noch in angenehmem Rahmen bleibt. Dennoch schon etwas heftig. Super erhaltenes und schmeckhaftes Bier /13/12/11/9/13

harrisoni (17352) - 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.

yngwie (16524) - 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)

TBone (16197) - 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!

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, 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.

Oakes (15806) - 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
