Inte mycket till doft. Citrustoner och grapefrukt, inget av de typiska stall och hästfilt. Smaken påminner om grapefruktjuice. Har inslag av stall. Väl bevarad och inte det minsta defekt trots 28år. Dock inte speciellt komplex, snarare frisk och fräsch ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (9362) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle at DHVL, year unknown.... It pours clear amber, with a quickly dissipating bubbly white head. The nose is wood, earth, farmyard, sour yoghurt, tangy, hard honey and sweet over-ripe fruit. The taste is sweet-sour, wood, pithy lemon, lots of apple, pear skin, some underlying sweetness, tanginess and a touch of vinegar, with long, lightly tart finish. Medium body and low carbonation. Not my favourite gueuze ever, but this one has aged gracefully.

@ Akkurat: Lite syrlig vinäger i doft men smaken är mycket syrlig och god. Eftersmak är lång och mycket elegant. Helt fantastisk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bottle from 1984 opened in Oslo. It was quite an event when it happened. Very complex smell and taste on this one. Earth cellar, fruity, apricots, hint of cigarr. I also noticed a salty aftertaste, reminding me of salami. Very nice beer overall, loved the sourness. I wonder how much the experience plays into the score, it was one of those perfect beer moments.

Early 1980’s bottle. Clear amber body, no head, no lacing, gentle carbonation streaming up. Nose is full of wood, funk, apple cider vinegar and general acetic notes. Flavor is similar, with acetic notes and mild oxidation dominating. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, light acidity, a blit slick on the tongue. Not sure if this one just didn’t survive 30 years of age (I don’t mind mild oxidatitive notes) or whether it always had this much acetic character to it. Not the worst geuze, but I have no interest in giving it another shot.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
1983 bottle with some carbonation left in it. Bottle courtesy of GRG1313. Pours with a clear, deep golden hue with a lasting white head. Aroma is musty, mostly cork, acid, apple, and rotten wood. Flavors are sweet, faded, appley, mild funk. Still lively bubbles, but the corked character makes it dead. Fun to try. We had a older Hassens that day (something from the 50s), and while flat, held its flavors much better.

At the sour Tasting @ DSG, many thanks DSG, 1984 vintage with a cork full of black mold and the bottle’s glass showing some signs of fatigue, pours an hazy sticky like orange with no head, aroma of cherries, acids, malt and some leaves, flavor is sourish with lemon, vinegar, leather and leaves, some moldy tones with zestiness, pretty good gueze after all.

kramer (5393) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Bottle, DHVL. Mostly clear on the first pour, amber in color, with a small fizzy thin head. Looks almost still. The nose is quite funky, full of cobwebs and a touch of cork, but not much. No noticable acidity and some light oxidation. Unfortunately the flavor is a little too over the hill to really be enjoyable, too much oxidation, overly corked. It actually tastes a little sweet. Not much funk or cellar character. Overly thin in body with little to no carbonation. The oxidation really lingers. Over the hill, but worth the gamble here. The next one might be phenominal.
