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

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 On tap at O’Brien’s in San Diego. Aroma sweet with slight brett. Flavor strong sour apple with slight fruity sweetness and mild sourness, finishing off with a more pronounced sourness and sweetness. Tastes slightly musty and aged but overall very balanced and mild. Quite a good drink.

WOW what a great beer!!! nose is citrus and acidic as it should be cloudy yellow, decent foam. Acidic but very very drinkable, refreshing with a touch of oak in there too.
