Bottle from Blafa - thank you! A classy, sourish Geuze with a decent berry in the back and bit of yeast. Some vegetables ending that interesting, but a bit unbalanced beer. Still a very goof brew.

Bottle from my Santa - thank you a lot Blafa! The Gueuze pours out in a cloudy dirty golden colour with low steady head and medium body. Wonderful aroma of sourness, sour berries and straw are followed by a great taste of green berries, citrus, hops and sour grapes. The sourness is great balanced and makes the beer a very tasty and delicious sour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazy yellow, smooth white head.
Aroma is slightly sweet, wild yeasts, vineaus note, perfumey note.
Flavor is pretty citrussy and sour, not much wood, if any, but plenty of citrus and some white wine notes. doesn’t feel very "deep" and i think it is more citrussy than sourish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 2012@nkbar. Yelow hazy. Yeast funky nose with green currants, hay, fruity apple zest, delicate meadowy florals. Light, medium acidic body. Crisp, long. Green grape juice, zesty. Good, but I can think of bunch of other things that match a sour ale better than white grapes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at The Kernel, London - many thanks to Josh! Pours clear yellow with a creamy white head. The aroma is crowded with dank and musty white grapes. Light sweet flavor with a bit of tangy white grape, bitter hay. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish with subdued acidity, cereal sweetness. Tasty and novel but doesn’t all come together.

@ SBWF 2013: trevlig torr smak men inget som sticker ut. Fin balans, en ganska lätt öl som inte lämnar större avtryck

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2013 Bottle shared at Paul tasting. Pours light amber with a small white head leaving sticky lacing. Nose is huge tangerine, peach, light apricot - think sweet and juicy tropical fruit. Grassy hops come out to play. Kind of like a fruit punch. More grass in the taste while the tropical hops hold the fort - passionfruit, tangerine, mango. Light sugar comes in with moderate funk. Finishes very oddly. Kind of a bready/dough/biscuit like influx with big toffee and nutty undertones. Weird but pleasing. Hides most of the funk though. Balanced nicely. Great beer
