apickles (130) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Slightly cloudy orange in colour. Very musty lemon nose, no head. Fresh tasting, lemony leaves a slightly bitter taste in the mouth. A little smokey, very interesting beer! Nice in a small quantity.

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle from Takatsuki AEON Mall liquor shop. 2009 vintage. Acidic, funky-dunky nose. Has lovely overripe fruit, Brett, berries, and manure. Amber/gold color, and a thin smooth head, constantly replenishing itself. Waxy apples, grapes, sour lemon, malt, and a slight aged note (a kind of ashy oxidation, but not bad tasting). Also, some metallic note. Thin body, but a bit thick for a lambic, quuite astringent and gently sharp on the tongue. Geez... five years old, and it’s probably just an adolescent in character development

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2014
Flaske, 375 ml. Årgang 2010. Gylden med et overraskende fyldigt hvidt skum. Funky kælderskakts-sex i næsen. Næsten animalsk. Syrlig, skarp, sprød, cremet og klistret med en velgørende jord-agtig, let hengemt note.

Whatup14 (801) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Bouteille 375ml, 2010, gracieuseté de noeffix, merci Phil! Couleur dorée translucide, mousse blanche évanescente, bulle rappelant le champagne. Arôme de fromage vieilli, funk, pomme acide,un peu poussiéreux, vinaigre de cidre. Goût de levures sauvages, bonne acidité, touche d’alcool, un peu terreux, funk. Carbonatation élevée, corps moyen.

neongolden (538) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
(2010 bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Oct 31 2014) Pours a hazy orange-gold with a large bubbly white head and no lace. Aroma has lots of bright citrus, funky musty notes, wet vegetation, only slightly earthy, maybe a hint sweet. On the palate, bright citrus sourness, tart juicy stone fruit and a noticeable sweet malt core, but decent helping of funky barnyard, lightly salty cheese notes, bit of wood towards the finish. Lactic type of sour character is mostly offset by sweetness of malt, slight drying alcohol presence in finish, lingering herbal notes. Medium bodied with crisp effervescent carb. A bit more malty than average but a fairly straightforward, reasonably sour gueuze. Perhaps not as exciting as I had hoped for, but an end of night beer so I may need to revisit it.
