Bottle 750ml. [2003]. Thx David. Pours hazy golden with high off-white head. Lots of lacing, lingering very long. Aroma is of barnyard, funk, acid, bretts, fruits. Taste is of barnyard, funk, bretts, sourness, acid, citrus. Palate: Nice texture, very fine. Somewhat ligth body, caressing the tongue. Overall: Very good beer. Well balanced, not too heavy on sourness nor acidity. Classy Geuze, all in finesse. Outstanding.

Bottle at Ryan’s. Huge courtesy of Ryan! Damn Dad! Pours a light Amber body with huge thick creamy white head. Aroma is rich earthy yeast, aged goida cheese, sour fruit, old dust and basement. Incredibly subtle but nearly perfect; notes of aged cheese, sour fruit, tart character, dusty basement - essentially a perfect blend of gueuze. Incredible.

MrHangover (3214) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle @ Heeren Liederkerke. Pours a slight hazy orange amber beer with a big creamy white head on top. Aroma is great, grainy, hay, barnyard, cheese, dank cellar funk, codwebs. Flavor is very smooth and tart. Medium sour funk going on here, great dry, woody presences in there as well and an awesome balance. Acetate Aftertaste is medium tart, dry finish. Great stuff.

ineedbeer (1218) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Aroma is really nice with great herbal and earthy notes. Moderate barnyard funk with medium light tropical and some fruit. Moderate citrus and light oak. Pours a cloudy copper orange with a faint, forced, thin, rocky head. Flavor has fairly strong acidity. Rather herbal, earthy character. Faint tropical fruit and citrus notes. Light stone fruit character. Light oak with really nice barnyard notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer with great barnyard funk and nice fruit notes. Bottle could have used more carbonation though to make this beer really pop.

Way worse than druiven. I also don’t like the way it looks. It’s too sour. I’m drinking coconut water instead.

750 ml bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad! Pours a hazy orange with beautiful white spongy head that leaves a lacing on the glass as thick as the head was once it settled down. Aroma is citrus sourness, straw, hay and brett barnyard funk. Flavor is amazingly complex: perfectly balanced sourness with notes of citrus (grapefruit, lemons) and mild wood. One of the best sours I’ve ever had - everything about this beer is appealing. The mouthfeel, balance of flavors, carbonation, finish, all make this an outstanding beer. From note 1/23/10 (Geist Dark Lord Tasting).

Bottle - thanks Staffan for doing the leg work here - pours a nice amber. Nice grassy, sour aroma. The taste is tart, sour, grass, and barnyard funk. Solid!!!

sarro (126) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Properly cellared bottle thanks to BrewDan. Pours a golden yellow, one finger, frothy white head on a gentle pour. Nose is mushroom and funky brett. Taste is heavy, but well rounded flint and dry funk that ends in a crisp sourness. Some light notes of Parmesan cheese are in there as well. Medium carbonation and finishes very dry. Extremely earthy and unique!
