Swaroga (1353) - 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 (1760) - 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.

fiammanghilla (557) - 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

Bottle shared by Bryce in line at New Glarus. Hazy yellow orangish color with a nice fluffy white head. Funky nose. Big tartness, wet hay, some orange and mandarin. Yummy.

Sublirony (15) - SINGAPORE - AUG 2, 2014
Pours a cloudy dark orange, almost peach color. A big head that quite quickly recedes. Cloves and nettles on the nose. Off-dry in the mouth with mouth-puckering acid though with a full mouthfeel and very long citrus finish. An acquired taste, and one I have acquired. "Best before end 2033." I can imagine it will last, but not in this house!
