Habanero (3281) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a small, white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast and barnyard. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carb. A nice brew indeed.

ivorywhite head leaves no lacing. orange blonde colour. aroma is pronounced lambic, horsefunk, malty, wood. taste is funky, citric acid, bit balsamic, solvent, boozy the finish is very wry which ruins it for me. medium body and carbonation. not too big a fan of this, i find the balance to be off. the vicaris geuze (with boon) was more to my liking. bottle 37,5 cl / 2012 version

375 ml bottle. Pours amber with full head. Aromas of barnyard and citrus. Flavors of bitter citrus/limes, light funk, and light malts. Acrid but incredibly refreshing. Great stuff.

PriorL (2777) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle, vintage 2012. APPEARANCE: clouded blond beer, small stable white head. NOSE: sour, brett, fruity, horse blanket, little hay, some citrus, wood. TASTE: sour, dry and bitter aftertaste, brett, funky like 3F should be, some alcohol warming. Very weird beer in every way... Will this age nicely? Looking forward finding out

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2014 Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Armin. Thanks man! Pour is clear golden with a frothy white head and great lacing. Funky, slightly spicy, lemony, biscuity, grassy, citrus, and doughy aroma. Taste is grassy, lemon peel, fruity, light biscuit, straw, barnyard, and lactic with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Interesting stuff.
