Bottle at Akkurat. Aroma of apples, basement aromas and sour candy. Good but a bit to kind and balanced.

1998 bottle. Pours a hazy-orange liquid with white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity for a gueuze, with notes of cork. Taste is sour at first, then sweet of apples and candy. This is a relaxed and easy to drink guezue that shows some similarities with a sour saison.

JAXSON (528) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2009 1998 bottle. Pours clear medium orange with a thin, soapy head. Nose is brett, hay, sage. Herbal. Quite funky and wild. Lemon in the mouth, a lot of barn character. Dry and soft. Not bracingly sour, but quite funky and really balanced. Perfectly soft carbonation. This seems to have mellowed considerably, but still blossoms with a deep complexity that’s hard to describe. As it warms, strange herbs, plants, and pollen come out. I had this beside a newer Fou Foune and this was far less sour but much more refined. The finish is what separates this from similar geuze, it’s long, long, and unfolds from dandelions into a soft ripe cheese. Beautiful!

Orange color with no head. The smell is over the top funky ass cheese, palmolive soap and acid. This is awesome. Super thick funky ass cheese taste...I want to make a quesadilla with it. Wow. Mouth is dry as the sahara and a nice finish...I want a cask of this so I can just fill my house with the aroma.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Vintage 1989. 750ml at Le Bier Circus. This was the last beer of my summer 2009 Euro trip. Pours clear going to hazy, medium golden-amber in hue. A small film of white foam holds strong, leaving scant spots of lacing behind. The aroma is strikingly sour, brazen notes of peach, lemon, and a pinch of white grapefruit assaulting the senses with intense fruity tartness. Farmhouse must and dusty air come across so thick, you can almost cut through them with a knife. The oak is on the softer side, to be expected from a brew that was crafted when I was 10 years old. The flavor is insanely sour, biting into the tongue with stabbing, acidic lemon, grapefruit, and apricot. Hints of white grape add a touch of a vinous character. The palate is crisp, puckering, and dry, with balanced carbonation and a sharp, dusty finish. Fantastic stuff. Absolutely delicious. I’ll treasure the memory of every last drop.

1998 vintage shared at Akkrat with kkearn. Beer poured a cloudy golden, amberish color with a strong head with active carbonation. Still strong after a decade in the bottle. No longer a lazy gueuze! Nose was sharp, very tart with some wood and citrus notes. Taste is tart but not overpowering and actually was very pleasant with lemon, banana and earthy notes that just work to make a fantastic beer.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2009
1998 Vintage, 750mL bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden on Sept 24 2009. Pours hazy amber gold. Begins with a medium sized off-white head that gradually fades until a ring of bubbles encircle the glass. Aroma is sharp and quite acidic, with notes of oak, intense lemon, and musty, earthy qualities. Citrus, especially lemon, wood, and lactic acid are the primary flavors. The flavor is sharp, but not as acidic as the aroma. Dry mouthfeel with nice carbonation. This is aging quite well, and was a very pleasant surprise.

Bottle. Pours an orange golden body with a thin white lacing. Very funked out, sour with vinous and musky notes. Woody, funk y and effervescent. Awesome Gueuze. Oh Hell Yeah!

Shared by Dickinsonbeer. Now this is how lambic should be. Funk hits you like a punch to the face. Funky as all hell. Extremely well balanced. This stuff is fantastic.
