MichaelAwesome (3641) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2014
Ähnlich dem white label, jedoch von der front her weitaus fruchtiger und von him- und Erdbeeren dominiert. Dann wirds laffer, etwas dünner und unperliger. Dennoch großes kino.

McTapps (3649) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle kindly shared by Bamsen78 - many thanks! Pours out in a hazy ligth dirty amber colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of acid and berries. Taste of unripe raspberries fresh from the fields, acid, vinegar and light malt. Mild and soft finish. Nice one but not characterloaded enough.

Bamsen78 (2993) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps & MichaelAwesome. Pours clear amber with airy off-white head. Clear, vinous aroma with fruity notes and touches of malt. Dusty onset, leading to a fruity and vinous body, with estery finish. Vinous aftertaste. Nice but I prefer the black label.

abemorsten (2622) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2014
25 cl bottle from de Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Golden sparkling body with a small white head. Grapefruit and vinuous berries on the nose and in the mouth. Medium bodied and juicy. Very pleasant to drink. Mellow acidity and a gentle citrus peel bitterness that lasts.

HoppyBudgie (690) - SOLA, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Slightly unclear orange color, full sized white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell sourish and slightly red fruits. Taste is softly sour, very balanced, slightly some sharp sour-bitter, some fruits. Medium carbo, medium body.

radiomgb (2227) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
375ml bottle. Sort of like the little brother to the black label. Looks fantastic in the glass, althought this is crystal clear it looks like it has some substance to it. There is some caramel in the aroma but some tartness and citrus is there. Seems like it is getting old, I would have thought that a gueuze could last longer than this. Why no date on the bottle?? There is still plenty of funk in the flavour so that is a relief. Excellent tartness and lots of citrus to compliment just a hint of sweetness. I nice gueuze for sure, not overly assertive but I like to not have to think about the complexities of gueuze every once in a while.

Mad_Ferret (639) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2014
2011 vintage. 375ml, hemma 11/2-14. U: Klar bärnstensfärgad med ett finger högt smutsvitt skum som försvinner snabbt utan spår. D: Vid upphällning en rätt så kraftig doft som påminner om bakjäst. Sedan kommer em mix av syrliga frukter, brett, stall och aningens rostat karamellig malt. Äpplen, äppelcidervinäger, lite citron, jästigt bröd, jästa äpplen, trä, lite bikarbonat. Söta toner av råsocker. S: Hyfsat återhållen surhet som jämnas ut lite av en något söt karamellig maltbas. syrligt fruktiga och strävt träiga toner av gröna äpplen, svartvinbärste, grapefrukt, besk/bitter eftersmak av citronkärnor och fruktskalk. M: Medelstor munkänsla med mjuk kolsyra, aningens oljig vätska som avslutar strävt. T: En udda men inte helt fel geuze. Det finns klassiska drag av grapefrukt, bokna äpplen och funk här men även en tydlig maltkaraktär och lite sötma som de mer bättre geuzerna oftast inte har. Syran i ölet känns även lite udda och drar lite mer åt strävheten i beskt te. Udda och kanske inte i toppsegmentet, men helt klart inte bland de sämre heller.
