28/7/2018. Bottle at Højbjerg tasting. Pours with a lovely aromatic fragrance, and a cloudy golden amber with a large foamy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, grape, citrus, apples, wine, banana and herbs. Light sweetness, moderate bitterness, medium sour and a little salty. Moderate body, slight oily texture, average carbonation. Very good. Bamsen78 (6466) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2018
Bottle @ Højbjerg tasting 28 July. Pours cloudy orangeish amber with airy white head. Clear vinous aroma with hints of yeast. Dry, vinous flavour with mild touches of yeast and hints of hops and dust. Vinous and dusty aftertaste with malty hints.

Bottle at Ryan's June 2018 tasting - thanks for this one. Pours a deep, golden orange body with thick white head and lace. Nose is strong oak, dusty basement, funky wood and tart lemon. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely balanced between a strong oak character and funky, earthy fruit; additional notes of tart lemons, salt, stone fruit, aged gouda and funk character. beerplace (3766) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2018
750ml bottle at Kump’s during the Pink session. Bottled on 2011-02.17. Pours an almost clear golden with a white head. Aroma is super funky with lots of horse blanket notes and some petrol. Similar taste. This one has too much of horse blanket notes for my taste. Still good, though.

Bottle @himmeriget split 2 ways. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a fairly frothy white foam. Aromas of tart apples, funky earthy notes and sharp acidity. Taste has big apple again, only a faint stone fruit presence, big acidity, bretty mineral notes. Aftertaste is dry with brett notes but the high sourness acts as counterweight, bringing forth a sense of complexity that I also found in A&G. Even at 10+ years this is alive and kicking. I suspect this will continue to drink wonderfully well into the future. Palme (5034) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2018
0.75l corked bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. So been looking forward to this one, so I'm probably a tad impartial. The cork definitely wants up and out! It has a big and almost foamy about white really lacing head. The color on this is goldenish and it had a good cloudiness. Lots of complex aromas here. Sour apples, cork. Could go on but just want to taste. An amazing complex sourness. Lovely. Oh, yeah. This is the shiat. Hard to describe how tasty and complex this actually is. Dandelions, there's wood, lots of fresh sorrel. Superbly finished by a strong refreshing bitterness. Just lovely lovely lovely. It seriously doesn't get much better than this. Happy all the way! 18.07.2015 witt (96) - Elsinore, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2017

750ml bottled 2011,sampled 2017. Unclear golden orange body with a fine off-white head. Delicate aroma, smooth funky with distinct cellar notes and hint of acidic lemon. Flavor is very nice and complex, well balanced smooth funky, farmhouse, wood, cellar, lemon acidic and feels a bit bitterer than the regular oude geuze towards the end. Perfect body and long lasting aftertaste. So nice, so complex, so well matured, it’s very close to perfect. neongolden (2728) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
(750ml bottle @ Himmeriget, Copenhagen, July 7/17) Pours a lightly hazed amber colour with a big white head that settles to a ring without lace. Aroma is strong in all the components - fruit, wood and funk. Notes of mixed citrus peels, a bit of zippy lime, orange and yuzu acidity, a little apple, tart peach, lots of floral notes, basement floorboards, lots of horseblanket funk, hay, a bit dusty and musty, with lactic touches giving a little bite. Flavour is again a lovely balance between components, juicy orange, nectarine, red apple, mixed citrus peels, a light lemon-lime bite, cracked grains, moderately tart with a bare hint of malt sweetness, old boards, a little leather, musty cellar, horseblanket more toned down than the nose, replaced by more cheesy lactic-supported funk, herbal and lightly floral, some hay, peppery yeasty notes in the back end with more citrus peel and lots of wood. Medium-full body for style, slick, set off by rather aggressively effervescent carb (a little exploded over the server who opened it). As expected from 3F, a truly beautiful blend, as I’m usually a fan of the characters 4yo lambic imparts. Armand’s own lambic is always a treat and the Boon is used quite well here. Perhaps slightly over-carbed, that’s the only knock. I’d love to drink this again, but am very happy I got to once!
