Poured this into a champagne flute and it looks the part. Same fizzy carb, but with a touch of orange to the color. The aroma is old wood, basement, and sour lemon. The flavor is an initial blast of sour and funk followed by a smooth woody finish. Really really good gueuze

abemorsten (2593) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2012
Sampler from 37,5 cl bottle at the Cardinal stand at Stavanger Øl- og akevittmesse 2012. Hazy golden body with a white rim. Nice berry, raspberry and citrus aroma. Most inviting. Grapefruit acidic and bitter in the mouth. Nice and smooth with juices being produced in the mouth. Top shelf!

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle, 375ml corked, at Patricks. It pours a non-see through bright orange body, with a thin layer of white bubbles. Some barnyard and sweaty horse in the aroma, but mostly it’s lemon peel. Lightly funky. Maybe a bit heavy on the carbonation, but it’s fine, medium bodied and tart. Lemon dominates the flavor too, there’s some leather hints and barnyard as well, and the finish is of the lasting kind with the same flavors as those found initially. Overall, a really refreshing and quenching one that I could certainly have a few of. 120523

jethrodium (364) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 21, 2012
375 ml bottle. Label is 2010-2011. Pours a clear golden amber with a small white head that has decent retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. Aroma is funky brett, some light lemon, and a light earthiness. Not terribly complex, but not bad. The taste has a light initial sweetness with some barnyard funk, light lemon, and a decent tartness. The finish has a funky earthiness. Medium body. Light carbonation. Not bad, but not nearly as complex as the best gueuzes. I’ll be curious if the 3-year blend is a big improvement over this 2-year blend.

tiong (3611) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 Tasted @ Gastropub Tuulensuu geuze blind tasting 2012. #2/15 overall rating

2011 vintage - Pours murky darkish orange with a small foamy head. Strong tart fruity aroma with berries, currants and earthy cellar notes. Taste of tart fruits, berries and harsh sourness. Finish is sticky, dry and slightly sweetish. Well balanced, but would probably be better when aged.
