golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - SEP 6, 2008
2003 Bottle. Gold pour with some off-white head. Aroma is woody and a little funky; actual not very powerful. Flavor is the same, lightly tart and funky, but a fair amount of sweet malt remains. Probably not as dry as it should be.

ogivlado (6416) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 1, 2008
Bottled(375ml). -from In de Wildeman.
Clear golden coloured, small white head, dry strong sour apple nose. Sweet and sour light metallic taste with notes of green apple. Also not so pleasant sulphorish notes. Some odd pistachio notes in long lasting acidic aftertaste. Complex and great beer. So far the best Boon Oude beer that I’ve tried. best before end 14.12.2026

esox (1194) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2008
Orange, a bit hazy beer with a thin white head. Thin but very long lasting lacing. Aroma has yeat and lots of of fermented fruits and berries. At least apples, banana and even fresh cranberries in the finish. Flavor is sour and acidic. Texture is quite carbonated but still surprisingly smooth. Long, sticky finish with fermented berries and fruits. Medium bodied. Quite "heavy" for a geuze because of the fermented elements and relativeli high alcohol content. Alcohol is still totally absent in the aroma. Good stuff!

Stine (1663) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2008
Vintage 2003. Cork blast. Peach flesh pour. Calcium, stale pineapple, cheese, champagne vinegar aroma. Some residual, distantly spicy sweetness. Hushed.

Flavor of hard water and sour apples. Bits of melon rinds, and stinky funk like compost air hanging in a humid breeze. Bretty, dried out, leathery, and farm-like; traditional, appreciable simplicity. Firm acidity, and a mild stone fruit brightness, softening.

Somewhat full in the mouth, with a scattered prickly texture, like insects. Finishes quickly, with a grassy bitterness and gravelly cheese rinds. Far from a starter kit example, but lacking the subtlety of something more advanced, it’s satisfying on the simplest of levels.

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 20, 2008
Golden peach yellow color, frothy head. Aroma: grape, brett, apple orchard. Bitter, tannic - grape skin. Not so sour. Spritzy. Short finish - bitter - old hops, wood. Slightly metallic/sulphuric. Good, not great.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Golden body. Nice acidic, fumy, funky, sour aroma. Flavor has a bitter funk up front, a nice pleasant sourness. Tangy.
