pictoman (7141) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2023
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2023 Poured from 375mL bottle (bottled 09/02/2016; bb 26/10/2026; 7.3% abv). Fairly hazy golden orange with small white head. Horse blanket, funk, thinking this has some nice age on it. Solid, good example of good aging.

Zlotta (8828) - Hagen, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2022
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2022 0.375 l bottle from 'Etre Gourmet', 2019 vintage, n°116 • 1819, bottled in October 2019. Quite expensive but probably still reasonable for this year's Christmas Eve. Hazy, orangeish amber with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, white head. Slightly sweetish, gently sourish, quite fruity, rather funky aroma of overripe lemon, horse blanket, oak, some white pepper and a touch of gooseberry. Gently sour, quite fruity, rather funky taste of overripe lemon, white pepper, oak, grapefruit, some horse blanket and a touch of gooseberry, followed by a medium long, gently tart, fairly woody-dry finish. Medium body, gently astringent and quite effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Lovely Geuze, very well-balanced and refreshing, maybe not as complex as expected though. Proper beer for special occasions.

Marko (17303) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 2, 2022
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2022 0.75l bottle, huge thanks Jonas! 2002 vintage! Murky orange-amber body, traces of an off-white head. Soft, sweetish, fruity, tart aroma, yeah, mushrooms now that they mention it but in a good way. Soft, sweetish taste, lean, bit cellary, light mushroom, some citric notes, nicely dried out, not as impressive as the aroma, but a greate geuze nonetheless.

BarleyTasty62 (740) - - DEC 2, 2022
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2022 Bottle, 2002. Cloudy amber brown. Soy sauce, leather, breadcrumbs, sweet raisins and prunes. Sparkly crisp, but the taste is a bit damp apple moldy earthen flat.

one51 (2053) - - OCT 22, 2021
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2022 2005 vintage bottle. Super funky nose, all kind of crazy vegetables like onions and mushrooms. Flavor is a crazy sour mixture with some lambic-y fruit notes, weird cellary flavors. Maybe a bit past its prime but still quite interesting. 7/4/7/3/16 Previously had 2005, now the 2002: reddish brown, small head. Funky mushroom hotpot nose, not as intense/overpowering as many sours. Excellent condition. Flavor is a crazy mixture: rubbery notes, onion, mushroom, quite dry sour notes. 7/4/6/3/16

Ritzn (4578) - GERMANY - OCT 22, 2021
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2022 2005. Hazy amber. Aroma is baguette leather horse blanket sour berries orange peel. Taste is sour fresh orange with some bitter dry woody juice. Very dry. Phew 2002. I guess I wouldnt write much different. Pretty well balanced. Nice.
