26/V/2012 - 75cl bottle @ WoSF 2012 (Opstal) - 1993 vintage bottle# 07497 - BB: IX/1999 (2012-548) Shared cost and beer with adamjackson and 77ships

Clear amber beer, no head, little bit of small bubbles. Aroma: pretty metallic, orange peel, bit dusty, some cork, some bretta. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: very sharp lemony sourness cutting through mouth and bone, little sweet, fruity, some bretta, mainly just sour. Aftertaste: very sour, little bitter, moldy cork, spicy bitterness and some pepper. Held up pretty good against time.

Bottle. 1999 version. Frothy white fair mostly deminishng head. Orange/yellow colour. Week and not very pleasent aroma. Powerfull sour and acetic flavor. Long finish. Creamy palate. maybe just a little bit too old?

1999 Vintage. Thanks to gypsy19 for this one! ~Moderate citric acidic sour scent with earthy tones, fruity citrus with apple and mild oak, light honey. ~Pours a very cloudy gold with no head. ~Sharp acidic tartness in the front that follows through. some apple and pear like qualities. Finish ends quickly. ~Light- med bodied. Puckering astringency. Dry finish. ~Enjoyable sour, but doesnt stand out like others that i have had.

jbeatty (1026) - New York, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle, 1999 vintage, 11/17/2012. For a gueuze, pours an amazing dark orange amber, but absolutely still. Aroma is quite musty with a lot of wood, heavy funk, a bit of acetone character, with tart lime, orange, lemon, vinegar- this opens up with a bit more fruitiness as it warms. Taste sour, acetic, quite bracing and puckering as others have described, with citrus and lemon peel, tart tart apples with bitter grapefruit, a bit sweet. Moderate, thick palate. Bit of a letdown, this was too aggressive for my taste.

kramer (4993) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold with zero head, not much pop on the cork, minimal to no visible carbonation. The nose is very acetic and sharp with a good bit of funkiness and some slightly cheesy notes. The flavor is especially bitingly acetic, a little over the top for me. This is some rot you esophagus out acidity. If there was any subtlety to this beer, it’s long gone. Bone dry and bracing with a light touch of carbonation remaining. This was OK, but I probably couldn’t have finished a whole bottle by myself. I like my Gueuze a little softer and funkier.

Ungstrup (29333) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2004
[Vintage 1999 at Grote Dorst 2004] The aroma is sweet and sour with notes of oranges. The color is a hazy orange and it has a small head. The flavor sour with notes of the wild fermentation, oranges, and dry wood.

Dunt (286) - Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Purchased from HOG. Been looking forward to this for a very long time. 1999 vintage poured in a Bruery tulip. Pours a translucent orange brown in color and is entirely flat. Nose is pretty vinegar forward with a fair amount of oxidation. The flavor is bracingly sour with a significant amount of vinegar. It hits pretty hard at the back of the tongue. Light mouthfeel, no carbonation, bracing acidity, and a moderate finish. Didnt live up to my expectations, but definitely happy to try it.
