rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - SEP 29, 2012
Appearance: Cloudy orange, small fine white head. Aroma: Citrus, lemon, hay, grass. Palate: Medium bodied, very fizzy, dry finish. Taste: Sweet and sour, less sweet in the finish. Pretty good, but not as complex as I’d hoped.

oliodnb (305) - ITALY - SEP 5, 2014
355ml shared. Pours light amber with a low white head. Smells of lemon, yeast, damp wood, and the obvious bretta funky aroma. Taste is very similar with light acidity and not too strong wild yest. Good lambic on the light side of the style. Could be a good way to approach this kind of beer.

kraddel (3114) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle @ Barely legal tasting room . pours clear blonde, good white foam . Smell is very ’real’lambic, somewhere between a geuze from Boon and 3 fonteinen . Similar to Oud beersel , to me that is , but a little more ’dry ’. Taste is intense, bit metallic sour , in a very nice way. back has some funk to it . Dry finish . Easy drinkable . Some grainy aspects . Very freakin close to the Belgian stuf, yet this one is slightly less complex, and a bit more metallic to me than what i’m used to . On the other hand, with geuzes every bottle is different .. Which is part of the beauty here . Tasting it now makes me say that this comes close to a ’real ’geuze, but is not there a full 100 % . I do doubt though , that if I were to taste this blind, I could recognize the difference . Maybe an idea to do someday ???

Light and airy, fruity. Amber/red body with airy head. Aroma of fruit juice, apples, cherries, berries. Taste is tart fruit, with dry finish. Light mouthfeel. Wish I had some cheese to go with this.

Foffern (1222) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle at home. 3 years old. Pours a hazy dark orange colour with a medium, light beige head. Very carbonated. Fruity aroma with rowan berries, barnyeard, forest floor, apple cider vinegar, oak, hay, horse, berry skin, lime and some sweet tropical fruit in the background. The flavour is pretty sour and is similar to the aroma but there’s in addition a touch of hops in the end. Has slick and sparkly mouth feel, and a light to medium berry bitterness. A solid and easy-drinking geuze with a hint of hops as well.

37.5 cl bottle Pale blond, white head. Sour aroma with wild flowers, earthy, brettas, grains. Light mouthfeel, very carbonated. Again grains, brettas, wild notes, olives. Not incredible, just ok!

UXO (208) - CANADA - APR 21, 2014
Pours a cloudy yellow orange with a fat finger of foamy white head diminishing gradually to a firmer cap and light lacing. Nose is crisply sour, green apples and lemons, faint funk of wood and hay. Taste is similar, with green apple tartness, brett funk, dry lingering bitter finish. Mouth feel is light and crisp, with medium-high carbonation. Very pleasant. Dry, crisp, and not at all sweet. I could drink a lot of this.
