Hazy golden brown, off white head. Mild dusty sour aroma. Very nice taste, dust and sourness with balancing sweetness.

Bamsen78 (2955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle @ Paters Vaetje, Antwerp. Pours hazy amber with small white head. Clear vinous aroma, with hints of malt and hops. Vinous flavour, with bitter, hoppy notes and touches of yeast. Lingering, vinous aftertaste. Well-balanced and nice.

JBPortland (654) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 14, 2014
375ml bottle (2010 vintage) pours semi-clear hazy golden orange with a finger of head and long retention. Nose is full of musty old barn wood, hayfield, granny smith apple skin, lemon juice, skunk, and funk. Taste is mildly tart crisp acidic green apple, funky lemon, hay, old wood, sourdough. Finish is dry tart funky citrus, wood, lemon, apple, mild acidity. Nice and mellow.

popery (1358) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a nice orangey amber color. Quite cloudy. Medium fizzy head, white. Bubbles dissipate fairly quickly and leave nothing behind. The aroma is peache, nectarine, plum sweetness with some lemon/lime citrus. Some oak character. Mild vanilla. Some funk, but it’s light and not very developed. The bottle probably could use a few more years. Medium sour. More light stone fruit that stays relatively sweet. Sweet is probably the wrong word because it’s still a rather dry beer. Medium carbonation. Light feel.

ineedbeer (649) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 13, 2014
375 ml bottle, vintage 2010. Aroma has light acidity, mostly lactic with moderate bright stone fruit notes, especially peach. Light tropical fruit and barnyard funk. Pours a cloudy, pale yellow gold with a fairly large, fluffy white head that displays really nice head retention. No lacing or legs. Flavor has a medium light acidity, mostly lactic. Moderate stone fruit character, especially peach and apricot. Low, bitterness with faint oak. Fairly low barnyard funk. Not much earthy, herbal notes either. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright beer but kind of boring. Lots of bright stone fruit, but not much complexity in acidity or funk. Could definitely use more time to develop complexity, but is pretty enjoyable and easy drinking now.

danlo (1074) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2014
375ml bottle. 2010. Orange amber colour, foamy white head and aroma of tart citrus rind, funk. Taste is tangy and sweetish, grains, lemon rind, woody, yeast, barnyard, sour and bittersweet. Slightly oily but also foamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry funky tart sour finish. Very drinkable.

Jesterdeal (1808) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2014
2010 bottle from Wine Works. Aroma of kiwi, perfume, lemonade, barnyard, and like oak. Pours hazy blonde with great carb and a flashy big head. Taste was stellar with kiwi fruit, oak, barnyard, and lemon zest but all subdued behind a mellow oaky funk. Crisp and delicious. This is everything good about Gueuze.

Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home (2010 vintage). Pours cloudy golden with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are grapes, brett, vinegar, and oak - with a dry and tart finish.

Sjohnh (117) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle from Beer Gonzo - I’ve been meaning to try this for a while. A bit like jumping into an ice cold plunge pool - you know it’s going to be different and an assault on the senses, and it is - but it kicks like a mule and is a little bit addictive. Tart like a packet of Haribo sourmix (thanks kids) but with some subtlety too - spices and a hint of Chardonnay grape. Liked it.
