UPDATED: SEP 3, 2014 Bottle: Cloudy orange with yellow edges, lots of small hanging sediment, topped with a creamy white head that fades to a collar quickly. Aroma is incredible funk and tartness; big acidity, lemon flesh, lots of wet hay and super musty cork. Mild wet oak and light vinous notes. Taste isn’t quite as tart but still has some sharp lemon and white grape skin acidity. Some musk, super dry oak, wet hay and barnyardy funk. Super dry, scraping finish.

chromeotaphor (101) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2015
Fruitig aroma van appels veeel kersen. Prachtig zacht en romig qua geur. Flink bruisend en een felle bubbelachtige kraag. Komt fel en penetrerend binnen bruisend binnen, vrij wild van smaak voor een geuze. Komt als een felle champagne binnen. Smaak doet aan een fruitige witte wijn denken. Houtige (felle) rokerige klassieke smaak en felle zuurgraad. Erg bijzonder. Jammer dat er een onaangename houterige zuurgraad aan zit dien lang blijft.

yourilevesque (318) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
Dégustée à la Brasserie de l’union. Bière orangée et très pétillante dont la mousse est constituée de grosses bulles éphémères. Vapeurs sèches et acétique, voire sulfureuse. En bouche le liquide est mince, très pétillant, très sec également. Les saveurs sont à l’instar des arômes : ça goûte l’alumette. Au centre du palais se développe une sensation fongique très plaisante. Un goûté de fromage humide et moisi. Courte, sèche, belle gueuze de soif!

Pours flat medium yellow with average mostly diminishing white head. Moderate malty aroma with notes of nut and bread. Moderate hoppy aroma with note of grapefruit. Heavy yeast aromas with notes of leather and earth. Notes of wood and hint of smoke. Initial flavor is light sweetness, heavy acidic with some salt. Fruity and wine-like. Light to medium body, texture is watery, carbonation is fizzy. Nice.

Garrold (2507) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
375ml bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, orange gold. Thick, bubbly, lasting, white head. Funky, and sweaty. Cheese rind. Bit of lemon pith. Taste is dry, and light, lactic tart. Frothing mouthfeel. Slightly acidic. Crisp, and clean. Long, light tart finish. Could drink this all day.

Sour with a bit of hopiness but not too heavy. Definitely smells like beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

umich03jm (2712) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is ultra funky. Mildew, barnyard, wet hay, cotton and light sour citrus juice. Tastes light to moderately sour. Nice dry tart finish. Very funky as expected to but more pulpy citrus too. Great stuff. Could drink this a lot.

574deadzone (1195) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Best by 2032. Pours a sunny gold with a tall, fizzy eggshell head that settles fairly quickly to almost nothing, leaving no lace and a decent amount of suspended sediment in the body. Nose involves some bright tropical and citrus fruit notes, hearty wooden oak notes, earth and dirt, hay, dust and cellar, something approaching funk but not quite there yet. Lightly sweet, fairly tart, and somewhat bitter. Light to medium bodied, somewhat active, tannic, with a drying cellar-tinged tart finish. A nice brew that maybe could have used a little more cellar time to develop.

Ysok02 (342) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUN 14, 2015
très belle robe entre l’or et l’ambre. Nez typé sur des notes de levures, de lambic, de fruits jaunes acidulés. Bouche à l’attaque tendue, un fruit élégant mais discret et une finale assez abrupte. La bouche est un cran en dessous du nez, néanmoins une belle gueuze

Nordcore (1146) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle 37,5cl. Golden, hazy with a large lively white head. Aroma of lemon, green sour fruits. Sour taste, bitter with a sour green apple end.
