mentalmind (38) - - DEC 30, 2013
Almost completely stale liquid that resembles more lambic than geuze. Color is indistinguishable from the genuine stuff from Belgium, and the scent has same tones as we'll. Taste is very much like young lambic, sour, citrusy but it lacks some of the more complex aromas older lambic a have. Still definitely worth a try for its curiosity value especially if one likes lambics. Probably still best to share this (75cl) bottle considering it is overpriced ~400 Swedish kronor @systembolaget

Bottle shared by JulienHuxley while at Cantillon - thanks!! Hazy amber pour with a slight white head. Slightly sweet and fruity nose. Low carbonation. Big fruity peach on the finish. Also slightly astringent on the finish.

DSG (6329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle shared at a sour tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks omhper for this bottle! Hazy gold. Sour aroma of fruits, wood, vinegar, a hoppy note and some bourbon. Sour flavor with vinegar, oak, lemon, light sweetness, a bit of hops and a light metallic note and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied.

tom10101 (3074) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Slightly hazy golden/orange with a small disappearing white head and little lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, vanilla, acidic notes, citrus and light funk-ish notes. Taste is also bourbon forward (not overpowering), vanilla, oak, moderate acidic notes and mushrooms. Medium body. Low carbonation. Woodsy finish. Decent Sour… have some similarities with gueuzes. Not too complex, but decent bourbon features and quite tasty.

JulienHuxley (3458) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle shared with friends, crazy . Hazy gold almost still. Aroma is fruity, nice fruity notes, light funk, dusty, lemony, vanilla and bourbon. Taste is really fruity, lots of peach on the finish, a bit dusty. Palate is flat, a bit dull. Not bad, but not great either.

Staffan47 (880) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2014
Hoffback bjuder på en flarra. Kork och kapsyl ger direkt Cantillonkänsla. Stall, funk, trocadero och spannmål i doft. Läskande och i princip obefintlig kolsyra. Citrus och äppeltoner. Låg syra och inget drag av ättika som så ofta när amerikanerna ger sig på att göra surt. Riktigt bra geuze, eller kanske lambic med tanke på att den i princip är flat. Prislappen är lite i saftigaste laget även om det är en riktigt bra suring. Blindprovad hade jag mycket väl kunnat gissa på en Grand cru Bruocella.

baggio (320) - norrtälje, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Omhper, cheers! Apperance: Yellow haze with almost no head. Aroma: Brett, Funk, Lemonpeel and citric notes. Taste: Citric notes, Mild brett, Hay, Herbs. Some light fruit. Palate: Almost flat making it an easy drink. A worthy try. It lacks tartness and funk (not to mention carbonation) and reminds me more of a fresh lambic than a geuze. At 400SEK this feels like highway robbery.

omhper (19945) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2013
Bottled. Cloudy golden, minimal head. Tart nose with some wood and stale grassy hops. Dry with medium body and soft mouthfeel, low carbonation. Salty and lightly acidic with notes of lemon and old hay. Some grape stone-like bitterness. Pleasant and quite complex.
