pinkie (470) - New York, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pours the color of a ripe apricot with the blush on it. Hazy and almost opaque except for it does let enough light in for you to observe it’s lovely color and the bubbles that are starting their way up from the bottom. 2 fingers of white foam top the beer and last until they become a light layer of film on top. Nose is funky with barnyard and earth. Wet damp earth. Some fruit tartness and a sour you can smell. A drop of vinegar and some overall lemon fruitiness. There is some vanilla on the nose that is like a fragrant flower that has grown in this earth and is sweetly in bloom. . Taste is outstanding. Funky, sour, citric, the embodiment of the lemon. The essence of the icy bright peel. The vinegar is not too strong. The earth and the wood come together as like is to like. The headiness of the fruit sweetness meets the light sweetness of the crisp wheat and lay a soft foundation for this dynamic beer. Sour earthy, and with a touch of some kind of green but woody herb to round out the flavor. Dry crisp and bubbly mouthfeel.

This beer is intense. The coming together of powerful earth and a bright bit of uplifted sweetness. The shyness of the musty earth after it rains and the greeness that lies in wait for when the sun comes to shine again. The fruit is the culmination of this beer and is taken whole in it’s every aspect from sweet peel to the tartness of it’s flesh , right through to it’s final incarnation - sour and like vinegar in decay. This beer is truly a perfect wedding of elements.

Bottle at Gaasa, june 10th 2014. Orange body with a tiny white head. Sour aroma with leather, grapefruit, barnyard, taste on same sour level, fruity, with oak and a subtle malt sweetness in the finish. Good complexity yet very nicely balanced, a great gueuze

lachneger (296) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2014
Fles brouwjaar 2010. Oranje kleurig bier met een witte schuimkraag. En licht zure appel smaak lichtelijk wrang met een heerlijk zoete nasmaak. Geur muf en zuur. Beste geuze tot nu toe.

Swaroga (1342) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2014
Butelka 375ml. Mętne o średniej wielkości pianie. W aromacie wyczuwalna jest typowa dla tego stylu tarta ale wydaje się być bardziej słodka. Do tego typowe dla tego stylu owoce przypominające zielone jabłka, winogrona i cytrusy. W ustach jest puszyste i dobrze gazowane o agresywnych ale cieniutkich bąbelkach. Piwo wydaje się być bardziej wyważone w porównaniu do innych geuezów. Wciąż dominującymi nutami jest typowa dla tego stylu kwaskowatość ale bardziej owocowa niż octowa. Posmak jest cierpki i cytrusowy. Świetne piwo ale trzeba uważać na sporą zawartość alkoholu bo prawie go nie czuć.

bartlebier (1724) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2014
37,5cl bottle 2010 Vintage (bb 2033) shared at Hugi’s Homebrew Tasting. Luminous straw and old lemon peel meet the effervescence of green apple acidity, minty chlorophyll and fragrant barnyard soil. Excellent dryness, none of its 8% apparent. Very suave and elegant composition of still sparkling flavours, had this down as a much more sedate blend - pleasant surprise.

Oldmanriver (52) - Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2014
A very nice geuze. Slightly hazy and deep straw color. Typical tart and horselblanket in the nose. Along with some hey, earthiness Light in body, effervescent and crisp. Medium carbonation with light mouthfeel

fiammanghilla (555) - Genova, ITALY - AUG 16, 2014
Bottiglia 37,5cl @ fob. Chiara con bella schiuma. Profumo di crisantemi morti. Ok bocca conferma una certa florealita morta. Acidità contenuta. Lontana da cantillon.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold
