Habanero (2490) - Tranbjerg, - JAN 22, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Bottled. Pours deep golden and slightly hazy with a small, white head. Aroma of brett, baryard, green grapes, peach and lemons. Dry flavor with some sweetness too and it ends up bone dry and tart. Medium bodied, watery texture and flat CO2. A very nice Geuze

Burgers (281) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Hazy lemon with negligible head. Aromas of sour apples. Taste sour with some tempering sweetness. Very little carbonation. Finish quite puckering and acerbic..

Alexd8 (9) - Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2014 does not count
Blonde aux reflets jaunes foncés. La pomme surette, la Granny Smith et la poire asiatique sautent aux narines. Des notes de terre noire et de plate-bande nous donnent l’envie de jardiner! Attaque vive, franche, qui se perpétue dans une superbe allonge. Un classique!

Alusmamuts (207) - LATVIA - JUL 24, 2014
Strong sour aroma. Yellow / light amber with medium whire cap, which fastly disapperas. Sour cider type taste with a strong citrusy bitter note on the last half of tongue.

John25 (377) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2014
375ml Belgian flag bottle in Paris July 2014. Dark gold. The aroma starts with grass, hay and a tart,funk element that's cut with strong lemon zest. The taste follows suit with strong citrus acidic notes. The tartness and funk balance each other perfectly and as the beer warmed up pepper and wood notes came out. The mouthfeel was nice and light with high carbonation. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamsen78 (2981) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle @ Staminee de Garre, Brugge. Pours slightly hazy light amber with small white head. Clear, vinous aroma, with subtle notes of fruit and touches of hops. Vinous flavour with dusty notes and touches of leaves, as well as bitter, hoppy hints. Dry and sourish, but rather mild, aftertaste. Low carbonation. Decent, indeed.

Timvim (51) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle @ home 20140720. 2013. Pours cloudy golden with a dense medium head.Aroma: A little rotten at first, then green apples, a minimal funkiness. Taste is old apples, oaky tannins very slight funk. Dry and astringent, a little thin. It feels like something is missing in the middle. More funk would perhaps have been nice.

chimpgibbon (286) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Delightful geuze and way sharper and tarter than I remember. Real lip puckering stuff. Big sour apple and musty lemon, hay, dust. Really long dry finish complimented by fine carbonation. Classic fare.

RickTheRick (335) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
Blonde aux reflets orangés et bien trouble, une mousse mince ne tient pas à étirer sa présence bien longtemps. Un nez fruité (pommes, raisins, citrons) et de terre (gazon mouillé) fait saliver. En bouche, c’est explosif et rafraîchissant, notamment grâce à l’acidité et à la sécheresse importante de cette bière. Un grand classique à boire à grandes lampées.

Jyrsa (17) - - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a matte golden yellow with no head. Nose is sour apple with citrus and yeast. Taste sour apple with a sudden attack of sourness that perfectly smoothes toward the end of a fruity after taste.
