Scopey (6661) - 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!

JBPortland (736) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 18, 2014
750ml bottle (2011 blend vintage) pours cloudy pale orange with some floaties and small head. Nose is super barny funk, horseshit, hay, wood, dirt basement floor, peach, citrus, lemon. Taste is equally as complex and holds all the elemwnts of the nose, and combines strong earthy layered funk with a ripe juicy citrus and stonefruit complexion. Finishes dry with juicy tart fruit, nicely balanced acidity and in your face funk. Great stuff.

EvilCat (80) - FRANCE - AUG 12, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Bouteille. 2011 vintage. Bootlegger’s. Robe orange cuivré, trouble, timide mousse blanche. Nez vif sur de belles notes fruitées de raisin frais et de pomme enrichie d’une odeur franche de liege et de levure. La bouche est doucement fruitée , sèche et peu acide pour une gueuze avec de jolies notes boisées et minérales. La finale est sèche, légèrement florale et mentholée. Un assemblage d’une belle finesse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mjs (4543) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2014
(Bottle, 0.75 l - 2011 Vintage, at Gastropub Tuulensuu, 20140808) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized, white and it disappeared quickly. Aroma had wood, tartness, vomit and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were sourness, tartness, wood, fruitiness and low bitterness. Aftertaste was sour, tart, fruity and bitter. A very good gueuze.

2009 bottle. Clear orange. Nice white head. Powerful funk but very drinkable and balanced. All in all a great gueuze.

rbrazell (1621) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle at Edmunds Oast. Clear deep golden pour with a fluffy white head. This is seriously one of the biggest noses one a Geuze I’ve ever smelled, huge skunky, hay, blue cheese, sweaty aroma with lemon peels and tart citrus. Flavor is deliciously funk forward and complex with layers of yeast character and earth with tart citrus peels. Dry sour finish. SO FUCKING GOOD.

vtafro (3224) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2014
(backlog) 2011 Bottle at DHL. Orange pour with tan head. Aroma has nice funk and tart tones similar to a cantillon gueze, nice funky tartness and leather. Tartness, oak and unfortunately lacks a little focus in flavor.

electrotype (210) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
Wow! Ça sent acidulé et complexe. Le cuir, le funky, le citron et une multitude d’autres saveurs explosent en bouche. C’est méga raffraichissant. Il y a même une belle petite mousse! Une excellente bière qui n’a comme seul défaut de me faire regretter de demeurer au Québec où les bonnes bières importées faciles à obtenir se comptent sur les doigts d’une main. Mium!
