brokensail (13243) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (12660) - 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

bu11zeye (12268) - 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.

argo0 (12119) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2003
(RBSG2003): Murky amber body with virtually no head. Aroma is tart, barnyard, slightly fruity. Taste is TART -- from opening through the swallow. Oh my goodness that's tart! Medium acidic body.

Christian (11786) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2009
1993 bottle at WSF 2009: Cloudy orange with a small white head. Funky fruit, wood and leather aroma, covered in a dusty and earthy blanket. Dry and tart dusty old flavour.

1999 bottle at De Heeren van Liedekercke: Funky leather, citrus and balsamic aroma. Very acidic, almost too sharp. Complex funky and balsamic character.

thewolf (11493) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2008
Bottle, bought @ plan B, Cph.
Pours muddy orange with no head. Aroma is tart, oranges, ginger, oak, apple, peach and a good degree of vinegar. Low carbonation, good oily mouthfeel. Super flavour, good oranges, geat tartness and dryness. Good oak with peach and apple. Good, but just a tad too much vinegar that gives a light burning feel in my throat.

bierkoning (11111) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2009 Vintage 99. Aroma has pear, lemon, lychee and oak. Very sour flavor with pear, yoghurt, fresh cheese, lemon. This geuze is amazingly fruity, and, in spite of the mouthpuckering sourness, softer than you might expect. I understand now why Belle Vue hides this beer from the crowd. If they get to know this beer nobody buys their normal crap. Another tasting @ the RBESG in Sheffield showed that this beer has mellowed down a bit over the years and has further gained in complexity.
