jcwattsrugger (11215) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2013 25.4oz bottle-pours a thin white head and yellow color. Aroma is first grassy, then overwhelming moldy cheese, barnyard-I smell the cows, then Joe read the label! After warming: grassy, overwhelming moldy cheese, barnyard, light fruit, yeast. Taste is citric acid-lemon, green apple, then tart/sour and sweet, vinegar. Vinegar overrides all else. Probably a great beer to some tastes, not mine. Thanks jwc215 for sharing. 1.8 *121201-750ml bottle @RLRL-thin white-hazy gold. A-funk, lt malt, brett. T-tart/acidic, lt malt, fruit, funk. Sipping. 4.0 ****************130817-16 yr old 750 bottle-thanks Skyview @RBSG-Minni

Tmoney99 (11065) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Cork and cap bottle. Poured cloudy orange color with a minimal fizzy head that diminihed quickly with fair lacing. Heavy fruity and sour citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a dry texture. Heavy tart sour flavor with a medium bitter finish of long duration. This is a standout beer for a select few.

imdownthepub (10641) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2004
Bottle Conditioned at The Oude Arsenaal, Antwerpen. Gold colour with thin head. Challenging lemon acidic tart lambic with a deep fruity flavour. A smashing beer.

bierkoning (10538) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2003 Aroma has sulphur, grass, citrus, apple and oak. The apple and oak I found in the taste is dominated by an overpowering sourness. Dry mouthfeel. For experienced beer drinkers only. Vintage 2002: geuze-lambic bio. Fairly light color. Overwhelming aroma of sulphur, ctrus, oak, honey and cheese. Harsh sulphury sourness. Citrus, oak vanilla and apple in the flavor. Some vinegar and hops. Delicious and very complex geuze. Young and a bit harsh, but will ease down and get even more complex in a few years. Great beer!

madsberg (10457) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2003
Bottled: Yellow coloured. Unfiltered. Light white head. Aroma is sour and earthy. Is balanced by a ligth sweetness. Very sour delicious flavour, that ends in bittersweetness. Balanced and wellmade beer. Happy to have 2 of these left in the cellar.
