petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2009
Ooh, ahh... This beer is just perfect! A hefty, yet refined aroma of wheat, citrus, dirty, funky cellar and fruit. The flavour is dry and compex with heaps of citric and lime notes. Notes of earth, hay and pinot gris follows. Ends dry and sour. A fine beer!

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2009
nearbeer’s Spring Cleansin’. Sample from a bottle thanks to nearbeer. 2003 bottle. Clear golden, light orange with a thin frothy sticky white head. Aroma is lightly acidic, big must, cheese funk that dulls the acidity, some vinegar tails behind. The taste is a dry acidity, lemon, citrus fruits, a bit of funk and over nice souring but not at all overpowering.

Gualthiero (35) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2009
37,5 cl 2004. A lot of carbonation. Aroma is good for a geuze. Nice balanced taste. Might be a bit more sour. Great bitter hop finish. Reminds me a bit of the cantillon iris. Great beer

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Bottle at nearbeer’s Spring Cleansin’. Pours effervescent orange with white head. The aroma is fine cheese (perhaps camambert), some fruity sourness, and a little bit of angel-food cake. The flavor is dry white cheese, dried fruits, some lemon, farmy funk, and a little bit of earthy bitterness. A refreshing sourness embraces the entire mouth. Quite a tasty one, this.
