Bardzo mocno wysycone. W smaku i zapachu dominuje przyjemna derka. Słodowość ma w sobie sporo słodyczy, ale całość oczywiście kwaśna. Zaskakuje spora jak na styl goryczka z ziołowymi nutami chmielu, ktry najwidoczniej nie był odpowiednio utleniony.

Bottle share at the brewery. Pours hazy pale gold with a lasting white head. Aroma of sour fruit, wood, leather, and straw. Light sweetness, medium sour. Light body, average carbonation. Finish is crisp, dry and sour.

MrHangover (4293) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle, thnx to Jimmy. Pours a clear golden straw yellow beer with a quickly disappearing off white head on top. Aroma has lots of barnyard funk, oak and horse blanket, typical gueuze aroma. Flavor is stringent and very tart, oaky and very dry. Quite high in carbonation, long in a stringent tarty aftertaste. Nice one.

Bottle shared with ebone1988 for the Koleminer20 turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. 375 mL bottle, 2014 vintage. For the fucking book. The pour is a darker orangey gold with a thick white head and a couple spots of lace left behind. The aroma is dank as fuck. Holy funky weed. Got damn. Its got a light lemon zest about it with a decent sour and a lovely funky mineral on the back end. Its pretty awesome. Interesting, but well done. The flavor is incredibly sweet. There is a light metallic addition and a hint of zest and a light funkiness, but this is nothing like the aroma would lead on. Its a disappoinent, actually. The mouth feel is a bit syrupy and undercarbonated with a sweetness that doesnt belong on the back end. It started out so well, and fell flat.

Bottle shared with koleminer20 for the Koleminer20 Turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. For the book. 2014 vintage. Aroma is dank as fuck, super fucking funky, slight tart, mineral, slight bitter, white wine. Appearance is golden amber, off white head, slightly hazy, great head retention. Taste is disappointing, slight funk, slight bitter, mostly sweet, not complex, not real dank, just terribly disappointing. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, slight funky sweet aftertaste. Overall, highly disappointing.

Bottle. BBE date May 2026; Drank Feb 2009 - Hazy orange in colour. Yeasty; funk, wood, leather. Fruity; crisp, citrus (orange and lemon), spicy. Tart and mildly sour. Dry finish. Smooth, soft and subtle; not as extreme as some gueuze. Liked this! Nice gueuze! (2009-02)
