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).

biggsbowler (370) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2014
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 (122) - 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!

Bottle thanks to hoppypocket. Glowing orange with huge creamy white foam. Impressive for a 9 year old beer. Aroma is distinctive barnyard, citrus peel, old cheddar and some old lambic (menthol). Taste is out of this world. It feels so fresh while being bone dry. Lots of citrus, must and some herbs. Feels like orange juice, nice moderate acidity with orange sweetness. Lively carbonation and light bodied. Awesome and refined, probably the best gueuze I’ve had.

Sip from a generous soul at dark lord day. Probably my only chance to ever try it. Smooth. Slightly tart. A bit sour. Wish I could have tried more of this uber whale.

kermis (5643) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2014
Bottle shared at DHVL side by side with Roze. Pours cloudy dark golden with a medium off white head. Aroma initially strikes as a swimming pool in a barnyard, with old musty dank cellar, cobwebs and wet dog. Flavour is light sweet and moderate acidic. The mouthfeel starts off soft and silky leading into a mellow but more acidic finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Beautiful!

ThirstyBird (1675) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2014
Tasted a couple of years ago at RBBSG and thanks to travlr! Pours a cloudy dull honey color with only a small ring of carbonation. The smell is complex with vinegar, funk, organic matter, earth. The taste is funky, woody, tart and slightly puckering with a dry aftertaste. Light body with medium carbonation. A real treat!
