DrSilverworm (7652) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Tasted during RBWG15 Grand Tasting. Hazy golden, slight orange color. No head. Big oaky funky gueuze character. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Light slick. Satisfying moderate sour taste. Light sweet. Good dryness. Great stuff. Much better than expected, for a bootleg blend.

AdamJackson (3046) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Acquired at DHVL in April. 2011 Bottling enjoyed in a Gueuze glass at 45 Degrees F.

A - Pours a dark gold with a 2 finger solid white creamy head.

S - Nose is very funky. lots of mold and old mushrooms. Lots of shoe and just a minimal amount of lemon, grass and straws.

T - Taste is okay. Its a very thin bodied beer. Lots of sour at the finish, tip of tongue lemon sourness. Cheese curds, a lot of wood and grapes with sour kiwi and grapefruit.

M - Tons of carbonation but then that fades and its very thin, almost oily / slick bodied.

O - This beer may shine in 10 years but as it stands, Im not a huge fan.

JBPortland (1001) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 18, 2014
750ml bottle pours hazy pale orange with medium head. Nose is swirling musty farm funk and old attic wood, juicy bretty fruit notes, funky stonefruit, dusty oak, toasted grain, wonderful complex nose I could sniff for days. Taste is classic gueuze profile with very well balanced tart peach, tangerine, green apple, musty barrel, toast, crawlspace, some soggy grain. Finish is dry light pale grainy brett fruit, tart green apple skin, wood, funk. Fantastic.

Lukaduke (2436) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Pours a medium golden color with a finger of fizzy white foam. Nose is funky basement musk and composting fungus. Palate follows with nice layers of musty basement funk, hints of stonefruit, dusty oak, horsehair and a lingering cobwebs.

Boutip (4959) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy beige color ale with a nice thick foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of tart green apple with some light barnyard and funky notes also perceptible. Taste is also a well-balanced mix of sour and tart green apple notes with some barnyard and hay notes with almost no acidity in the finish. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. I love the complexity and the limited amount of acidity in this beer.
