4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2012 bottle that’s been sitting around for a few months. Cork comes out readily. The aroma of this beer is an experience on its own - apple, hay, lemon rind, and a pronounced herbal funk (including some lightstruck character). Deep gold in color with a slight haze. This particular bottle was unusual because it raised a substantial head of foam that lasted. Taste follows the aroma with a nicely balanced acidity. Apple peel, lemon rind, grain, hay, and an intriguing funk. A fantastic balance of each individual character. Prickly carbonation. Mouthfeel is appropriately dry and champagne-like. Possibly not the most "challenging" gueuze, but probably my favorite for its balance of funk, fruit, and acid.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour at Chucks, courtesy of beastie. Fitting to grab a beer like this to close out our days of going out in Seattle and grabbing a beer. Memorable for sure. Hazy copper pour. Sour citrus aroma, and has a sweet peach to it. Amazing aroma to say the least. Excellent invitation. Tart, dusty, grainy citrus. Complete flavor. True grapefruit bitter and sour. Excellent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a orange golden color with two finger of white gaseous foam. Lots of complex stonefruit, citrus and straight up cobweb basement funk. Great harmony of flavors with the musty fruit evolving from bright citrus to soft fuzzy peach all the while being wrapped in a funky dusty wet basement complexity. Dry on the finish and a real pleasure to drink !

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Never rated this & hadn’t seen it on the shelves for a few years. 2014 375 ml. Red orange pour, low carb. Nose is lemon rind, caramel, slight must. Taste is lemon rind, sweet caramel, some leather. Lots of sweet caramel leading into tart lemon. I’ve never had this aged and have never been a big fan of it fresh. I loved Bierpalieters though so I will definitely age the next bottle of this I come across.

Flaska rose red cafe, brygge. Orange lätt grumlig kulör. Blommig och stallig doft. Citron och hö. Smak av trä, citron, jord, vinäger och halm. En ganska mogen geuze med viss sötma och diskret syra och torr avslutning.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a thin white head/lacing. Aromas of green tart apples, vinegar, yeast, funk, lemon, citrus. Taste is dry, sour, but not without sweetness. Really a crisp, tart taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice apple and barn aromas. Very accessible actually despite the significant sourness. Will developed, perhaps not the most woody or complex but I enjoyed it a lot. (375cl bottle from Dekoninck),
