Served decanted for 30 minutes. Almost clear golden color with a few big bubbles. Aroma has lambic funk, unripe fruits, vinous notes, wood barrel spiciness and dried dates. Taste starts sour, lemony and astringent with some stonefruit pit bitterness. Finish has a light cognac complexity but everything is really well integrated. Medium body with low carbonation but it's not flat by any means. I enjoyed this one more than the first batch. Jaceks21 (540) - Zgorzelec, POLAND - AUG 2, 2018
Jak to pięknie i intensywnie pachnie... Morelowo-brzoskwionio z lekką taniną, w tle winogrona z białymi owocami. Trochę skóry. W smaku podobnie - owocowo, trochę cytrusowo i gruszkowo nawet, jednak profil brzoskwioniowo-morelowy się wybija. Genialny balans, alko nie istnieje, lekko cierpki i taninczy finisz. Wręcz rozpływa się w ustach i na podniebieniu. Wysoko w osobistym TOP piw jakie piłem. b3shine (9955) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2018
750 ml bottle to teku (batch 2, bottled 26/03/2016; shared with the Mrs.). Looks great! A somewhat hazy vibrant geuze orsnge with white head that slowly but steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of a nice balance of lambic funk and oak followed by lemon/lime citrus and a pleasant sherry presence. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and pleasant. Not batch 1, but fantastic nonetheless. davidezdonz (871) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUL 13, 2018
A 750ml bottle, batch 2, bottled on 26th March 2016 and a best before date of 26th October 2026. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen funnel and decanter, decanted for 60 to 90 minutes and poured into a 3 Fonteinen Zenne glass. It was a mostly clear golden orange colour with a minimal white head and sparse to no lacing. Aromas of earthy funk, barnyard, hay, oak, nutty, sherry, peach and lemon. Tastes of complex flavours. Funky, earthy, barnyard, sour, lemon, grape, apricot, sherry and oak with a hint of vanilla. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, wow, such complexity and goodness from a beer. Amazing and well balanced. Now I really want to try this side by side with the sherries and even batch 1, if at all possible. Travlr (29718) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2018

(bottle, vielen dank stefan!) hazy deep golden colour with a small frothy off-white head. aroma of acetone and wine-soaked raisins, with some house-character barnacles, brown bread, peppermint and roast beef. flavour is more barnacles, yeast and bread crusts, with a heavy yeastiness, some walnuts, herbal hops and a rather dry cherry skin finish. medium-bodied with zero carbonation.
