brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Clear golden orange with a white head. Vinegar and butter on the nose. Very unpleasant. Minimal fruit or funk, a bit of lemon zest, and perhaps some malt sweetness. Tastes of straw, butter, and vinegar. A mild bread sweetness, some straw, grass, and a bit of harsh oak.

Mad_Ferret (617) - 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.

vtafro (2784) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2014
(Backlog) Bottle. Was really looking forward to this after having the black label. Brown pour with tan head. Musky, funky, apple and barnyard funk/cheese like aromas. A little of of dark malt, hint of tart and fruit flavors, missing that strong sourness, finishes light and drinkable.

bursprak (400) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2014
375 ml bottle @home. Pours copper/bronze with a small head that quickly fades. Nose has green apple skin, some lemon peel and is light acidic. Taste has lemon peel, barnyard notes, spruce and light tartness. Did get some off flavors though but enjoyable nevertheless.

Cuso (4199) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 3, 2014
750ml bottle from Countbeer, many thanks Camiel. Deep golden color with huge white head. Tart aroma with barnyard, red fruits. Taste, tart apples, lemon, some fruitiness, mild sweetness in background. I am missing complexity in this beer.

Bottle in bar in Gent. Smells of green apples. The color is red, almost dark red. The taste is sour, dry and fruity. Feels citric in your mouth.

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2014
Bottle 375 ml, corked and caged. Into a tulip, ABV 5% Clear body, deep orange in colour, with a small white head on top. Average retention, light lacing. Nice aroma, fruity, red riped apples, some sugar. Good taste too, mildly sour, with grapes and a bit of wood, a bit of medicinal bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Quite tart and dry. Overall a nice one.
