Countbeer (4833) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle (37,5): Served at a good temperature in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized white head. Hazy orange body. Aroma and flavour seriously remind of the classic Belgian Geuze, very nice and very well done: cheese, funk, wild yeast, rope, se barnyard, tart, rubber, cellar, wood and wet stone. Damn it’s all here and tasty! Aftertaste is tart, cheese, funk, wild yeast, grapes and berries, some barnyard, wood... Etc etc Low carbo, loght creamy mouthfeel and more than just medium bodied. Super stuff!

tectactoe (2518) - Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle: Pours like a burnt amber swamp, murky & completely opaque. Slightly bubbly eggshell cap fades to a thin ring quickly. Aroma has huge bouts of tart citrus, acidic lemon, stone fruit, & a strong backing of barnyard funk, wet cork, & driftwood. Just a hint of florals. Smells nice. Wow! Extremely sour flavor, puckering as hell. Sour citrus, lemon, peach, & sharp, acidic notes of under-ripe stone fruit skins. Moderately lactic with a bit of white wine vinegar. Strong, musty barnyard & cork-like funk with a strong, woody finish alongside the fading, acidic citrus. Crisp, dry, sour. Slight perfume-esque bite near the back-end. No idea what a sea buckthorn tastes like but apparently it’s sour & quite citrusy. Delicious beer. Very gueuze-like in maybe ways, perhaps a bit more acidic/sour & less woody/funky, but tasty as hell nonetheless.

MrHangover (2868) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle @ THT November. Pours a hazy golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of funk, fruits. No idea what a seabuckthorn smells like, so it’s hard to define. Flavor is very sour, tart. Well carbonated. Very hard to explain the flavors here, but the sourness is very present. Interesting stuff.
