Lore (1362) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 12, 2015
hazy orange colour, 1 inch creamy, long lasting white head; aroma of lemon, earthy-woody notes - like a wine cellar; taste is like a BRUT champagne with the bitterness of hops and sourness; excellent geuze

Bulk_Carrier (2515) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2015
Back of the bottle reads 14/03/2034. This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a hazy yellow color with a two finger white sustaining foamy head. Stringy lacing slides down the glass nicely. The smell had a sharp citrus slightly bitter, slightly sweet, decent amount of sour and a super light underscore of earthiness. The taste was mainly sour but a good sour with the tart there as well. Earthy and somewhat woody sweetness runs into the aftertaste and leaves a quick finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a great sessionability about it. This would be great on a hot Summer’s day as there’s a nice refreshing quality about it, not as dry as I thought it would be. Overall, I say this was a wonderful beer as I would definitely have again.

suprchunk (2505) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2015
2011 bottle. Pours a very effervescent gold. Brilliant. Big white head that falls quickly. Peachy lemony aroma. Some earthy notes and slight funk. Taste is mildly funky. Not much sour. Slight earth. Light lemon tartness.

cpetrone84 (1602) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Pour is slightly hazed golden yellow with a tight white head. Nose has a light saltiness, moderate mineral presence, faint lime juice and lemon. Flavor is very minerally up front bordering on sulfur, juicy lemon and citric acid, fairly acidic finish. Moderate to soft carb, light delicate body.

tfredvik (1297) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy pale amber to golden body. The white head is long-lived and never gets smaller than a thin layer. Crisp, dry, slightly funky and strong aroma of sparkling (white) wine, tart fruits, apples and hints of oak and fermented fruits in the back. Quite strong flavour of sparkling wine and acidic and tart fruits, with wood, fermented apples, citrus and faint barnyard in the back. Light, very dry and lively carbonated. Very nice.
[37.5 cl bottle, enjoyed 3.5 years after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

sonotono (71) - torino, ITALY - MAR 19, 2015
COlore dorato torbido, schiuma esagerata. Odore acido, fruttatissimo, pungente, ricorda lo spumante. Sapore acido, molto frizzante, tipo spumante, secco, fruttato. Non è il mio genere preferito.
