Scopey (8792) - Croydon, Greater London, - OCT 2, 2012
2011 edition, bottle number 05292. It pours hazy golden yellow, with a thin fizzy white head. The nose is barnyard, sour apricot, tangerine, orange, sour yoghurt and Savlon. The taste is pleasantly tart, lemon, white grape skin, green apple, sour apricot, lightly acidic, hay, floral aspect, touch of bitterness, wood, barnyard and a hint of underlying sweetness holds it all together. Long, tart finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Not the sourest of geuzes, but for me the balance is perfect. Complex, yet highly drinkable. Bravo HORAL!

Bottle courtesy of Ryan at his June 2015 tasting. Pours a golden body with thing fine white lacing. Aroma is like grating aged cheddar against wood. Mouthfeel is minerally with notes of sour apricot, peach, oak and wood. Very nice.

Dr_Fellini (791) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Thanks Kate for sharing! Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy apricot color with a small off white head. Aroma is classic gueuze, tart, yeast, a bit of funk. Flavor has a solid tartness to it with a touch of fleshy fruit sweetness. Overall a very nice beer. Interesting concept.

Unde (550) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2015
A bit hazy golden beer with long and lasting head on top. Aroma has zesty green apples and sourness. Some yeast comes up too after awhile. Taste is really sour at first then some sweetness comes up and ending with apples and vanilla flavours. Medium body and high carbonation. Interesting Lambic but I’ve tasted better.
