Franckg (913) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2016
Embouteillée le 25/09/2014, bue après 18 mois. Robe dorée légèrement trouble surmontée d’un épais col de mousse blanc léger et rocailleux alimentée par une effervescence plutôt vive. Les arômes sont puissants. À 30 cm du nez, on sent déjà les fortes effluves des lambics. Citronné à souhait mais on sent des pointes de fruits du verger tels poire et pêche. Également un fond de bois mouillé qui apporte un côté vieillot. Bien entendu, c’est l’acidité qui domine mais cette touche de fruits sucrés vient l’atténuer. En bouche, on est immédiatement surpris par la légèreté du liquide. Une acidité bien modérée comme le laissait présager le nez et plus de poire et pêche. Léger goût d’orange également et un arrière-goût boisé. Touche de grains et pain. Finale amère et légèrement citronnée. Texture un peu onctueuse et corps moyen. Très bonne gueuze.

asheft (2895) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle. Farmhouse and white wine aroma with sour cherry and freshly lit match notes. Hazy orange and effervescent under a persistent, white flannel blanket. Sour white grape and cherry flavour with faint oak and a moderate woody bitterness. Medium light body, high carbonation, mouth puckering.

Une couche de mousse blanche se pose fièrement sur une bière dorée et embrouillée où on peut y apercevoir des particules flotter sans gêne et un volcan de petites bulles. Quelques effluves de fruits jaunes supportent un bouquet très minéral et poussiéreux, typique au genre. Une carbonatation véhémente et une délicate acidité caractérisent cette bière. Je fus tout de même surpris par la présence d’un léger goût sucré qui balançait bien l’acidité. Une de mes geuzes favorites.

DerGantzel (266) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2016
Nice aroma of malt, grapes with notes of fruits and hops. Semi-clear golden liquid with a fine white head. High sourness and light-medium bitterness. Lively carbonation, full body and soft texture. A great and relatively strong geuze!

OldMrCrow (2318) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Bottle purchased in 2005 tasted 2016 best by 2023.

Opens with a nice puff; plenty of carbonation left. Surprisingly deep caramel pour. Aged hops dominate the aroma and come through heavy on the aroma, recalling in ways various aged British barleywines. Indeed the aroma is sweet and caramel-fruity like some shit I’ve had in a fancy restaurant twice on someone else’s tab. Some hints of sweetness early in the caramel, but then, as Chris says, "really dries out in the finish". Yeah. Leather of course. Delightful. I need to rate this fresh.

The_Osprey (5466) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2016
Cork and cage 375ml bottle at home as ’Boon Oude Geuze Mariage Parfait’, 8%, 2011 vintage bottled in 2014. Highly effervescent noisy pour. Dark amber, highly sparkling to start with, clear with a dense foamy off-white head. Aroma is quite pungent under-ripe orange, grapefruit, perfumed armpit, some rubber and apple, some swimming pool. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is apricots, biscuity malt takes a backseat to tangy dried fruit, oaky, spoiled citrus, soft drying acidity. Very easy to drink for 8%. Great.
