37.5cl Bottle, back in 2010, RBESG Rome, at 4:20 courtesy of Alex. Alcoholic funky sour ale with some Bretty honey notes, anyway this was really not for me.

375 ml corked and caged bottle via clarkvv. Thanks! The beer is still, and pours a clewr gold color. The aroma is really more like a mead. It smells like papery honey with some notes of we wood and musty, earthy berries. The taste is very sweet. It seems like the mead killed any acidity that the gueuze may have had. Zero sourness comes through, which surprised me quite a bit. Slick mouthfeel. This beer is like drinking a lower abv mead. Odd, not what I expected at all. Glad I got to try it, though.

2007 bottle at Sub Zero
Moldy cork, poured cloudy golden small white head, some lacing. Aroma of sawdust, woody and vanilla. Taste of vanilla, malty, cheese and honey with a dry finish

Bottle from Sub Zero in Anchorage. Colour...hazy dark gold with a thick white head. Nose....cheesy! But with sweet spices and baked butternut squash infused with turbinado. Palate...tangy, funky and musty with dry notes and Camembert, Edam and havarti. In other words, very cheesy! There’s some grapiness and a general vinous character and the finish is long and tart.

Bottle at sub zero. Huge moldy cork. Pours a clear orange color with a large white head. A wonderful fruity woody vanilla nose. Rich honey, wood, mushrooms, lemons, zesty. Awesome.

Aged for ?? years. Shared with greenclansman. A nice sour gueze with some mead qualities.

greenclansman (840) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - NOV 10, 2014
Light yellow color. Nice sour aromas. Taste of wood, grapes, with a sour and sweet honey aftertaste. Nice beer.

Alengrin (7270) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
Blend of Hanssens Oude Gueuze with an English mead, intended for export but not produced anymore today. Off-white, thick but quickly collapsing head, deep hazy golden blonde robe. Typical lambic aroma of lemon, sweat, sulphur, wood with difficult to identify, spicy accents (cloves, wormwood) and a faint hint of bitter honey. Complex lambic funkiness in the taste paired with a dry, grapefruity and spicy bitterness with a subtle honey sweetishness in between, only coming to glory when the deposit is added - apparently the honey component was lurking in the bottom of the bottle. Strange product, difficult to rate, not your average honey beer. Glad I tried this.

Koelschtrinker (26421) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 16, 2014
Stark karbonisierter Antrunk, wenig säuerlich. Angenehm würzig und wärmend, der Alkohol ist nicht erkennbar. Die Karbonisierung stört etwas, wenig bitter, komplex mit minimal hopfigen Noten. Sehr gut. 12/13/12/12//12
