Draft. Golden pour. Not quite what I think of with geuze but has a nice lemony citrus note like a true gueze.

Bottle. Pours clear orange, medium off-white head, dissipates fairly quickly, good lacing. Aroma is fruity, lemon, oranges, funk, horseblanket, oak, dust, honey, floral. Flavor is light sweet, light tart, citrus and fruity notes along with light funk, lemon, passionfruit. Lightish body, creamy mouthfeel. This is really good.

ineedbeer (1088) - Oakland, California, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Aroma is fairly hoppy with some tropical fruit, citrus and a nice herbal note. Some light stone fruit as well. Moderate, spicy, herbal phenolic notes with some light oak. Low barnyard funk. Pours a hazy, dull golden orange with a bit of a brown hue. Medium sized, medium thick head that recedes quickly to a thin film that lingers for a bit. No lacing and small legs. Flavor is moderately acidic with some nice citrus notes. Some light stone fruit and tropical fruit. Medium light oak. Moderate herbal and hoppy spice notes. Light bitterness. Some light barnyard funk. A nice mineral quality. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice hoppy sour but it’s not super geuze like. Lots of nice herbal qualities and a light barnyard funk. Good mineral qualities. A bit flabby.

AirForceHops (4176) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle supplied by Eric S. Color is an clear orange/ Amber without any kind of head at all. Aroma is yogurt, faint rotten apple, mild funky yeast. The flavor shows me weak lemon, funky yeast that gives the sour and tartness you would expect. Not really finding hops in the aroma or flavor. If you really reaching to find the hops maybe a light floral hint after the funky yeast. But that is really stretching it. Well... I don’t hate it and this is not a style I ever seek out.

electrotype (336) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Une odeur ronde et chargée de notes difficillement identifiables. On sait que Mikkeller aime expérimenter avec toute sorte de fruits dans ses bières sûres et, ici, le premier réflexe c’est de se demander de quel satané fruit peut bien venir cette odeur (et saveur) plutôt particulière! Puis, en regardant la bouteille, on voit que la bière a été dry hoppée avec 8 milliard de types de houblons différents et, semble t-il, également vieillie en fût de chêne... On commence alors à comprendre pourquoi il n’est pas évident de mettre des mots sur les notes perçues! C’est donc une bière avec une personnalité assez particulière mais qui est présentée sur un corps absolument irréprochable. L’expérience est plutôt agréable au bout du compte!

AshtonMcCobb (3674) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle thanks to Stuu666. Appearance - hazy orange with a light skimming of lace. Nose - light cider vinegar note, then solvent. Taste - canned peaches. Apple sourness. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy and tight texture and a dry tangy finish. Overall - quite a rounded lambic.
