tiong (10000) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2019 10k rating! 750ml bottle @ 1420. Smooth, farmyardy and funky with loads of cellary notes, some cheesy notes, gooseberries, tartness, mild sourness and wood. Really well balanced and quite tasty still after 21 years. Awesome.

Taste is slightly dry sour-ish, old rope, sorrel, oak, hay, minerals, bark, berry skin, unripe berries, old citrus peel, old cellar. Medium bitterness, slightly dry sour-ish mouthfeel. Fair enough, seems over the top to me...

jredmond (9882) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Bottle at Ryan’s January 2017 tasting - huge thanks for this one - wow. Pours a deep orange body with short white head and minimal lacing. Nose is dusty old lambic, fruit and dank basement. Mouthfeel is essentially perfect for a Gueuze - and a bit surprising given the age on this (+19 years??) Notes of lemon funk, old aged Gouda cheese, light perfume, dank basement cement, fruit, oak and cedar.

PhillyCraft (10410) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2017
Another one off the bucket list. Huge thanks to Ryan for sharing this dusty butthole of a beer. Pours golden orange with small head. Smell is old and perfumey with complex oak, blanket, and lemon skin geueze. Flavor is lemon Earth, oak, leather, and Spanish cedar closet. Medium bodied. Such a perfect geuze...holding up great at 19 years old. Amazing!

skortila (6467) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2016
Bottled. 15cl sample. Many thanks to PotjeBier. :-) The aroma has overripe apples, wood, soft horseblankets and funk, little citrus, hint of cork. Bit hazy, orange coloured epicness with a medium sized, off-white and even lasting head. The taste is above average sour from mostly citric acids and some lactics. Soft and smooth overall. Well preserved beer. A joy to be able to taste this gem.

PotjeBier (4514) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2016
This bottle has been sitting in my closet for over 16 years, so it was about time...As promised long ago, shared with de Rooie Dop crew (NoiZe, Caesar & Skortila) & Bierkonijn. Cork comes out easily with a good pop. Pour a hazy golden yellow color. As good as white head, firm, a bit frothy. Delicate geuze aroma’s: sourness, ripe apples, wood, a hint of sweetness even, light cork and fortunately not much brett funkiness. Flavor is moderate to full sour, but soft, not sharp at all. Light to medium bodied. Long finish, sourness remains, along with some wood. Like I expected, nothing but a good, nice tasting geuze.
