Vignale (2415) - Malmö, - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle from Barley Wine Cph. Pours deep straw coloured, no head. Unusual tones of honey wax plus wet wood, white vinegar, unripe apples and citrus. The taste tart at first, but the warmer it gets the sweeter honey tones grows to a well balanced and really descent geuze that lacks the funky stable character that signifies the best of them. A little tart bitterness in the end adds balance and complexity to it´s favour.

375 ml bottle @ Patricks. Can’t really believe I have forgotten to rate this one. Anyway there is always a good excuse to have another bottle of this one. Geuze seems to go pretty well in combination with most food and this time I had it with my Irish stew at Patricks, not a bad match at all. The beer is unclear golden with a huge, stable, white head. The aroma is very nice, with all the elements from a good classic geuze, but a bit mellow and almost extreme balanced, nothing stands really out it just a pleasant combination of sour fruit, mild acid, and funky barnyard. The same goes for the flavor, nothing extreme, nothing disturbing, might even feel a bit lame for the sourheads, but I think it’s really impressive to make this full blooded geuze this smooth and easy to drink. This will make it a perfect match for a lot of different food without any disturbing flavors. A classic, even if I prefer the unfiltered black label version just a tad better.

Leighton (13576) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle shared at Beavertown - many thanks to Daniel. Pours clear gold with a foamy white head. The nose has some grassy notes, ripe citrus, melon. Light sweet flavor with some tangy citrus, drying wood, grass, soft funk. Light bodied with average carbonation and massaging carbonation. Good balance in the finish, with further grassy bitterness, citrus, mellow funky twang. Great stuff overall. Very drinkable.

Hermod (3959) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 5, 2015
37,5cl bottle. Poured deep golden, thin white head. Quite funky with apples, horse blanket aroma. Sweeter flavor, mild funky with apple cidery notes, brown sugar, earthy notes. Dry finish. Drink cold , then the sweetness disturbs less.
