2015 edition at the Lambikstoempers festival, funky tart nose with a faint hint of cheese, herbal bitterness, a touch of grapefruit. Tart yet with undertones of sweetness.

Complex and interesting brew. Expected to be more sour but luckily it was very pleasant balance with sweetness and dryness. Intense fruity and yeasty on nose and less malty for me, almost cider alike. Didn’t perceived wood tones. Light to medium body, high carbo. Refreshing indeed and tasty.

Great surprise.. I almost gave up on geuzes before tasted this one. Nice farmhouse bretty, nice not too pushy fruity tartness, quite noticeable wood impact, grapefruit citrusy. Light sweetness with moderate tartness, quite dry in finish. Very nice and refreshing, high drinkability

Klimaet (755) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle shared thanks to Kai! Thanks buddy. Pours dark yellow/orange with a medium white head. Aroma is pretty bretty up front, barnyard, sour green apples, tannic, some sweeter fruits and some wood along with some subtle mushroom-like notes. Pretty weird. Taste is citrussy, leathery, sweet green apples, some sour notes but very mild overall.

Pour a beautiful murky dark yellow/light orange, with an everlasting white foamy head. Damn good looking. Aroma of brett, sour apples, sligt banana, barnyard, slight citrus, slight leather Really well balanced and well rounded. Definately some complexity, with all sorts of things going on. Everything well integrated. Semi full bodied, with a rather flat carbonation, that suits this greatly. Taste is somewhat sour, definately, but isn’t overwhelmingly sour. - well balanced. Thanks hoprider for the treat.
