FaithHealer1 (358) - - JAN 29, 2013
2008 bottle at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a hazy orange, finger of white head. Aroma is incredible - grapefruit, lemon, sherbet, backyard funk, some dust. Classic gueuze. Taste is great, too - grapefruit, lime, sherbet, a bit of apricot, almost bready. Obviously sour, of course, but not nearly as puckering as a Cantillon. Medium bodied, CO2 prickle, slightly dry, yet long, flavourful finish. Oh joy.

Douberd (1702) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2014
Corked and caged 375 ml bottle at home, 2008 Vintage, into a big Chouffe glass, ABV 8% Hazy pour, deep orange golden in colour, with a big fluffy head, slighty off-white in colour, with average retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma is grape-y, with old wood notes. Light sour taste, fruity, with white grapes, light apple juice. Medium thin body, quite carbonated, tart on the palate without becoming extreme. Overall an easy drinking gueuze, nice and refreshing. Difficult to choose between this and the "normal" Boon gueuze.

markextrae (684) - NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2014
37,5cl bottle, 2008 at home. Poured a murky orange colour with a bigger small of white head. First note of a sweet sugary smell, murky sour notes, Apples, vinegar, white grape, earth tones, oak, lemon Peel, small unplesant aftertaste. Regular oude geuze from boon is better for me.

tmongoose (1085) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 9, 2014
12.7oz bottle shared. Pots a cloudy yellow with white head. Aroma is sour. Tart, and funky. Classic gueze. The flavor is wonderful. Starts off tart followed by sour and then dry. Got some mild Brett and funkiness. This is really good.

Gurthnar (1249) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 7, 2014
Bottle from Csak a Jó Sör. 2009 edition. Aroma is nicely bubble-gumy. Very clean, yet intense, evidently sour with light sweetness. Clear golden colour. Taste is really sour, lightly sulfury. Not as good as aroma suggests, yet still good. Clean profile. I find it easily drinkable (considering what it is).
