kermis (9980) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2016
75cl Bottle shared at DHVL. Clear amber with a small off white bubbly ring head. Aroma of big mouldy notes really showing the age, oxidization, caramel, apple, blue cheese, light band aid and light citric notes. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and sour. Light medium bodied with very soft carbonation. Intense.

PriorL (3069) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle at EPB1. Been a long time though. But since I’m not gonna encounter this again... APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, surprisingly still a small whitehead. NOSE: quite some horseblanket, quite fruity. TASTE: bit sweet, quite sour as well though. Not the geuze we know nowadays, but aged quite well!

kraddel (5841) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2015
So, there’s a long time want ! Apparently - to set all dicussions to an end - there are 2 variations on this 1 entry. Eylenbosch made a sweetened geuze ( I hear that one is pretty bad ) , but they also made an Oude geuze ( unsweetened ) of course, without (proper) labels, there’s no way to tell if the owner doesnt know. Anyhow, at groote dorst (where this bottle was consumed ) the 1984 vintage 75 cl is the real deal and almost gone, while the bigger lasting stock of 37,5 cl is the sweetened geuze. This rating belongs for the 1984 vintage, 75 cl bottle of unsweetened geuze. Pours clear , good white head. Smell is bit bitter and earthy. Taste is pretty damn sour, still, for a 31 y old beer ! only slightly dusty which dissapeared by letting the beer breath. To the dry side, with some funk present. Maderia-like oxidation is extremely hidden, in contradiction to other beers I’ve had, not remotely this old. Great carbonation and MF, this baby did not water down. Very nice ! Glad I did ignore the comments about this being bad, and asked for the real deal !

Bottle, vintage 1982. Dark hazy amber with no head. Aroma is funky, sour fruity. Fruity funky sourish flavour. A nice surprice.

_angst_ (4390) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle courtesy of maschusch. 1982 vintage. Pours hazy burnt orange with a small offwhite head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is funky and smokey with crackers, lemon juice, green apples, smoked ham, moist hay, leather, barnyard, moist soil and lemon zest. Taste is sour, tiny fruity, slightly smokey and funky. Finish is sour with crackers, lemon juice, apples, smoked meat, leather, hay, moist soil, barnyard and lemon zest. Always cool to drink something as old as you. I’m about as sour and dry but not sure I’m as smokey. Solid gueuze but suspect it was better many years ago.

ekstedt (6417) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2015
Bottled (vintage 88). Clear deep amber, no head. Sugary raisin aroma, some dried fruits. Sweet with low acidity. Very interesting, but not that good and surprisingly sweet.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle (1984)... This beer rocks!... Lightly-hazed amber ale with no head. The bouquet is restrained and hard to pull from the glass, but it finally offers up lemony, funky notes of ancient cheese, horseblanket,manure and barnyard. Medium-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is as sour as Hell, but also amazingly fruity with huge notes of pluot and apricot. The acidity is sharp, crisp and crystal clean. The funked-out, musty aroma doesn’t hint at the acutely acidic, fruity flavor and crisp, tart, clean finish. Ultra complex, fruity and flat out fantastic - from top to bottom - from start to finish. Big-time thanks to biggsbowler for acquiring this elusive, world-class rarity to share with the South Florida Crew!

50belair (3301) - Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Botte, ’84, generously shared by Randall. Clear burnt orange pour with a fleeting white head. Tart with lemon zest, butted orange, and grassy notes. Good body and mouthfeel. Impressive considering the age....
