Christian (10778) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2005
Young bottle: Cloudy golden beer with little head. Big aroma: Oranges and lemon. Hay and leather. Winegum and port. Sharp acidic flavour, fruityness that lands between lemon and a gin&tonic.

Post Dark Lord Ratebeer experience. This was not a young bottle, but it sure was good. Very smooth sourness with grass and yeast. The mellowed out tartness is very nice. Thanks Eyedrinkale.

Unsure of the vintage, but this baby had some years on it. Cloudy gold with a medium head that didn’t last long. Funky cheese and barnyard aromas. Taste is really dry and I can only assume the tartness mellowed out over the years. The hops are skunked a bit in a good way. Still, refreshing and dusty.

1FastSTi (3281) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 Best by 1/25/2025. The beer pours to a really hazy amber straw colored body with a tall foamy/super fizzy white head that mostly dissipated. The aroma is tart with a nice barnyard and horse blanket. Funky sourness. The flavor has a deep straw and sour funky horse blankets. Not as tart as I’d have expected. The straw and malt is note entirely masked by the funk. Very subtle and delicate. The palate is dry, tart, and acidic, fizzy, but not puckering. I guess I just wanted it to be more offensive.

It’s our 15th anniversay today so Mariage Parfait seemd like a very good choice! And it was. Very nice geuze. Oak and lots of citrus in the aroma. Golden color, lots of bubbles, yellowish head, good lace. Sweet, very malty, sour as it should, oak, citrus, soft bitterness. Very soft and full body. Not very complex but wonderful drinking.

had a bottle of this in antwerp in a rituous old cafe called waags...highly suggest you seek this place out if your in antwerp and you have already hit kulminator. served in the horizontal basket as many gueze are. copper butter color with frothy tight white head that has much effervesence. huge nose of horse blanket and kriek. dances around on your taste buds with tingles and pushes high acidicnotes of tartnes through to a sweet fruit. had no idea it was 8% great with the assortment of cheese we were eating.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 Bottle. Semi-cloudy, dark golden colour. Small head. Acidic and earthy aroma and flavour. 6 3 6 3 13

2003 bottle, 6 years old, at ZBF09. Mild cellar aroma. Clear amber colour. The flavour is very mildly citric with a little mold and a distinct oak flavour. Tastes like a mild geuze lagered on used oak casks. Rather high carbonation. 8 3 7 3 16
