lokis333 (218) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - DEC 7, 2015
Oppened with a pop! Cloudy almost unfiltered look plum juice color with strong white foam when pouring but it disapears instantly. Aromas of apples, plums, grapes, fruity, champagne, cider, sour, dry. Quite complex aromas for this one smells of fermenting fruits in a way, interesting. Palate, wierd! Dry, sour finish to it, has quite bit of carbonation,has somewhat light.medium body, definatly not heavy. Taste is very dry and sour, at the beginign you get this wierd dry plum and carboard mix? Although it is not thick but sure is not easy going, find it hard to drink. Overall, wierd, wierd, wired! I dont know how to describe it otherwise! Interesting to try and good fun but would I drink this again probably not, would I get it for friends to try? Probably yes.

pitch992 (45) - SLOVENIA - DEC 5, 2015
Aroma was tart, acid, citruses- more specifically grapefruit. very pleasant. some barnyard as well. The barnyard aroma could be stronger. appearance is pale, amber, slightly hazy, minimal head, white foam.medium sourness, light sweetness, tart, citruses, some well hidden alcohol. light body, some gentle fluffiness, slick feel, lively, long tart finish. Much better than the basic geuze from them. Nicely drinkable, refreshing, quite dry, well balanced. Could use an extra taste and aroma note though.

Samuel214 (213) - SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2015
Flaska från 2011 på Örebro Öl & Whisky Festival. Orange, ytterst lätt disig vätska med vit skumkrona. Syrlig doft, en del vinäger och sötma från brunt socker. Smaken är också den syrlig och balanseras upp med lagom sötma. Sväller fint i munnen. Avslutas med lätt bittert bett och stalltoner. Jämn och frisk, ett elegant öl. Snyggt!

Liquide doré, peu d’aromes, mousse blanche éphémère, très carbonifiée. Cette bière à le goût très particulier des gueuzes, les vraies, sans sucres ajoutés, légèrement sûre et acide qui est très plaisant et rafraîchissant.

minutemat (3222) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
375ml bottle, 2011. Pours hazy gold. Lots of barnyard, hay and sweat in the aroma. Taste is cheese, funk, custard. Smooth and tart with layers of complex maturation. A beard-stroker. Marvellous.
