77ships (7023) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
75 cl. bottle split with Kogymo. Procured @ De Hopduvel. Bottled on valentines day 2014. Lots of pressure on this one, opened very, very slowly, luckily not a gusher. Hazy brown, non-lasting head. Ripe fruits upfront, light decay, oak, malt-rich, spices, quite a bit of murky wood, lightly murky vinous leading into substantial but balanced balsamic vinegar, oak, sour finish, almost reminiscent of Rodenbach Vintage. Not very complex or attenuated but very satisfactory. Looking at previous reviews, either this brewery has really stepped up their game or I got lucky.

gEUS (1676) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2014
750 ml bottle at home - guuuuusher. Pours murcky amber brown with an eggshell white head. Aroma of dark malt with prune and a swift of dark forest fruits. Light sour body, a little sweetness but not much, slight bitter dry finish. Taste: virtually none, bitterness is all that is left behind. Not bad but lacks character and complexity vs. for example Ypres, Rodenbach Vintage,...

Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012. Pours cloudy amber with a medium, foamy head, some sediment. Tangy wood and leaves in the nose. Sour flavor, light sweetness, more wood and leaves. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Dry finish, tangy, with leather and berries. Also, this beer gushed like crazy.
