viktorvee (510) - Greater London, - DEC 11, 2013
Somewhat cardy and flat, the off notes aren’t so much in the welcome funkiness but a murkiness, not light or spritzy at all. Maybe an old bottle?

AshtonMcCobb (4070) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - amber with a decent thin head. Nose - apples and wood. Taste - sour apples, light wood. Palate - close to medium bodied with a tight tangy texture and a dry finish, but I’ve definitely had much drier. Overall - good but this style should be a bit drier.

Bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Cheers Ash! Pours clear golden amber with a thin white head. Aromas of apple, wood, peach. Taste is very appley, cider, wood tannins. Sour tangy finish, with a paracetamol edge.

aleigator (491) - GERMANY - AUG 17, 2015
Girardin gueuze white, ’14 vintage Yields a sun-yellow clean color, with a decent, froth head, collapsing to sheets of lacing. Smells of dried lemon peel, a fair amount of leather and a moldy funkiness. The fruit perishes underneath the profound, green potatoe skin soaked funk, including a note of old sox with a whiff of wet mushrooms, tied together by dusty, earthy malts. Exhibits an exuberant barrel woodyness, directly blending into the profound malt foundation. Has a higher, bubbly carbonation, providing a soft, mineralic mouthfeel, leading directly to a distinct, funk coated oakiness. Tastes of wet mushrooms, extremely dusty leather and acidic white citrus peel. Its funkiness is omnipresent, defining the beers taste, together with an intense oak infusion, soaking up wet earth, as well as a white grape skin sweetness. Finishes with a soft minerality, sporting tart citrus peel and a musty oak earthiness, together with a sharp white pepper bite. A highly moldy and funky Gueuze, uncompromising and unusual in taste, convincing though, once getting ones palate adjusted. Its fruitiness, basically as all other flavors, has an old, dusty characteristic to it, enhancing the beers oaky appearance throughout.

rdb84 (344) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 Slightly murky golden pour with very small head. A: funky mushroom-infused apple aroma, vinager, white porto. T: follows aroma, but the sourness from the apples / vinegar is more pronounced. Starts sweet, apples. Develops towards a sour but mellow high, hints of porto, vinegar, sour cherry candies. Aftertaste starts with mushroom and basement funk, but ends with a slight apple and citrus flavor. Thirst quencher.
