Bottle at the Funky Buddha Lounge in Boca Raton. Split it with my friend Gail. Pours a hazy light color with a small head. Some lacing. Aroma of sour apples and white grapes. The taste was apple, pear, white grapes with a sour tartness. Not overly tart, but kind of a mix of tart and slight sweetness. Well carbonated. Light and refreshing. 2009 vintage.

Niksko (542) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2016
Bottle labelled 2010. Pours a lovely light orange with a thin off white head. Nose is a little ammonia, horsey funk, some dust, a little lemony sourness. Flavor is fresh clean tartness on the attack, transitioning to a more lemony, perfumed, slightly barnyardy funky sourness on the mid palate. Finish is a little bitter, a little cat pee, more horse. Very complex tartness and medium funk. Light bodied for an 8% beer (as you’d expect), medium to high carbonation. Refreshing and tart, complex, delicious, really enjoyable.

Barrracuda (36) - AUSTRIA - FEB 8, 2016
Instable head, orange with slight haze. Citrus fruit, winey, acidic complex. Intense acidic, but complex, refreshing.

alteregoo (560) - POLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Piana sycząca, szybko opadająca do cienkiej warstewki. Barwa złota, klarowna. Aromat z jednej strony estrowo drożdżowy - białe winogrona, brzoskwinia, biszkopty, z drugiej brettowy, kwaśny - stajnia, ser pleśniowy, kiszona kapusta, cytryna... W smaku mamy powtórkę, kwaśność jest umiarkowana, czysto cytrynowa, w posmakach białe wino gronowe, niedojrzałe śliwki, lekka cierpkość pestkowa, niska goryczka, oczywiście bretty, choć subtelne (stara skóra, ser Lazur)... Klasa! Wysycenie wysokie, drobne, szampańskie, półpełne w odbiorze, alkohol idealnie zamaskowany, choć szybko "wchodzi" w głowę.
Świetne Gueuze, perfekcyjnie ułożone, zbalansowane, delikatnie dzikie i mega szampanowe w odbiorze - w pozytywnym tego słowa znaczeniu (nie mylić z Igristoje).

Rask0lnikov (159) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2016
Deep yellow colour with nice white head. Vinegar, seawater, hay in the aroma. Salt, vinegar, wood at first. Sourness and very little of horseblanket. Sour and spicy finish. Light bodied, soft, medium carbonated, easy drinkable, not so sufisticated geuze.

5 year old bottle. I do recommend to wait some time with this beer. Compared to the young one it has a lot more rich palate after few years of aging in bottle. In aroma? A lot of fruits- especially green apple, very pleasant vinegar. Head? Haven’t seen better in any gueze at all. Taste? Very dry but also perfectly balanced. I am definitely keeping one bottle for 2021 :)

artemb (345) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JAN 31, 2016
Look: orange murky with yeast particles. Aroma: barn, cider, autumn wet leaves, dusty grass. Taste: sour with some astringency. Flavour: bitter almond, green apricotes, hay, light zesty and woody notes. This is more sour and funky and less complex than Oude Geuze. Good anyway.

brewtalita (127) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 24, 2016
Hazy golden chill haze. low stable white head. Aroma tart cherries, cork, oak wood. Palate watery, high carbonation. Taste of green apples, sour cherries and lots of balsamico. Dry finish although start is perfectly blanced sweet and sour. Nice Geuze.

Bottle from Hopwater Cellar, Newcastle under Lyme. Easy drinking, dark sour. Certainly sneaks up on you. Cracking.
