jbeatty (1199) - New York, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle, 2009 vintage, 11/19/2012. Pours light caramel chestnut, foamy rocky head, fades eventually leaving sudsy lacing, champagne bubbles around side of glass. Aroma of grapefruit pulp with citrus, tart green apples and pear, leathery barnyard funk to balance with musty oak character. Taste is bright, tart green apple and white grape, vinous, with nice acidity, moderate funk, vanilla, with sour fruity finish. Light, lively, refreshing body, champagne-like carbonation. Nice, fruity geuze but still balanced.

Klimaet (712) - 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.

MotherBrother (813) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2015
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.

ineedbeer (1225) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 26, 2015
2015 bottle with a cork that shot off instantly. Aroma is moderately oak forward with really nice, earthy, barnyard funk with a light herbal note. Light citrus and tropical fruit notes. The funk to this is really nice. Pours a slightly hazy, pale gold color with a medium sized, fairly frothy, white head that slowly recedes but never disappears. Light lacing and small legs. Flavor is moderately acidic with some light citrus and a touch of acetic acid. Medium light oak notes. Moderately strong, earthy barnyard funk with lighter herbal notes. Some light tropical fruit character and stone fruit skins. Medium light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, this is a really great geuze, though a bit young. The acidity is still a bit sharp and unbalanced as is the oak, but the funk is really nice and herbal and earthy.

King_Alex_II (642) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 23, 2015
(2015 bottle) the color is orange and a little muddy, with little foam. Sour funky and cheese smell. The taste is funky and sour, yet quite malty and with a very crisp carbonation. The aftertaste is super dry and sourish with a very satisfying mouth feeling.

RickTheRick (636) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
** Édition 2013 ** Une mousse peu convaincante se forme sur une bière dorée et assez trouble. Très végétal au nez, mais quelques arômes "vineux" picotent les narines également. L’acidité est franche, permettant ainsi de véhiculer à merveille les saveurs fruitées (citrons un peu sucrés, limes) de la bière. Un peu boisé et minéral, cette bière est simplement délicieuse.

anstei (323) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle at SinH4?s Goodbye Event. Smooth geuze aroma, very present but not dominating. Pleasant mix of saltiness, sourness, bubbly carbonization, easy to drink and smooth. Very nice! Now give this one two years and see again...

RumRunner101 (881) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle 2013. Hazy golden pour with white head. Aromas of bandaid, strong brett funk, light peachy sweetness. Funky to the finish, medium-light bodied, light wheat malt balance. Funk and brett through the finish. Good.

SinH4 (1089) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2015 Vintage 2015. Surprisingly dark orange color with big white head. Aroma is wood, horseblanket funk, ripe apples. Taste is lots of wood and apples, quite a nice rather heavy body, some sweetness, apricots, peaches, good finish, not too acidic. Amazing soft foamy mouthfeel despite a very high carbonation (still very young) Easy sipping and a great Gueuze at the same time. Gotta get some of this to age, incredible how awesome this is already now.
