pivnizub (8724) - Bochum, Porúří, - SEP 17, 2012
Bottle: Golden, hazy, small and stable white frothy head, malic acid, citric acid and traces of peppermint(?) in the nose, light wheaty-grainy touch, a bit cellary, too; moderate sour flavour, accompanied by a light bitterness, medium bodied, a bit fizzy(!); lingering and a bit warming citrussy-cellary finish. Yes, well balanced and moreish Gueuze…

electrotype (200) - 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!

Timvim (44) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014
2013, Bottle #25189 @ home 20140708. Cloudy straw colored liquid, dense compact white head with excellent head retention (there is still head after 15 minutes in the glass). Light, a bit vinous aroma with funk, apples, cherries. Taste is very complex yet perfectly well balanced with funk, grain, oak, green apples, vanilla, cherries, green grapes. Medium, refreshing lactic and citric sourness. A tannin twang, perhaps a tiny bit too much. Wow.

markextrae (854) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2014
Shared 75cl bottle with a friend 2013. Poured cloudy golden colour with a white head. Lemons, hay, apples, harsh, vineous notes. Smooth sour mouthfeel. But for me it’s a bit overdone and to complex, blending so many beers. But again still very tasty

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle 09936 from 2009. Amber with light foam ring. Very big salty scent. Big taste. Airy body. Seems pretty lively, maybe it needs to rest for more than 5 years. Crisp. Cider and apple notes.

Bottle from Bu11zeye. Bottle 15530 from 2009. Pours dark, hazy, orange gold with a white head. Aroma is sweatsox with fair amount of sour peach. Rather dry. Not the least bit harsh. Finishes light tart fruit. Excellent.

2009 Bottle 15530 shared by bhensonb. Pours orange amber with an attractive off-white head and a magnificent fruity aroma. There is a well-blended sour fruit flavor with a dry finish. I could drink this all day.

reebtogi (4038) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
750ml corked bottle (2013 - Bottle #7274) pours a slightly hazy golden color with a huge white head that retains quite well and leaves some spotted lacing behind. Aroma is lemons and lemon zest with some grains and woody notes. Taste is a lemon sourness with a malty and fruity sweetness finishing dry. Medium bodied with generous carbonation leaving a nice tingle on the palate. A good brew for the style.

Habanero (2440) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy, deep golden with a small, white head. Aroma lemon, grapefruit, wood,grapes, brett, barnyard and spicy notes. Sour flavor that ends up dry and more tart. Light bodied, watery texture and soft carb. A complex and excellent Geuze.
