Zlotta (6337) - Hagen, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2019 0.75 l bottle from 'De Bierkoning', 2013 vintage, bottled in April 2015, cellared for almost four years, consumed on Christmas Eve 2019. Almost clear, orangeish amber with a thin, slightly fluffy, slowly diminishing, white head. A bit sweetish, sourish-fruity, gently funky aroma of old lemon, oak, horse blanket, a touch of quince and traces of leather. Just a little sweet, quite sour, gently funky and rather fruity taste of old lemon, quite some horse blanket, leather, oak and a touch of gooseberry, followed by a medium long, fairly tart, rather woody-dry, funky finish. Medium body, slightly astringent, spritzy and gently effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very tasty and well-balanced Gueuze, a real pleasure.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2019 Gueuze 2010. Couleur orangée voilée. Mousse généreuse qui tient bien. Nez fermier, animal bien comme il faut. En bouche ça tabasse pareil. Finale sèche et plutôt âcre. Un peu boisé. Acidité modérée. Bon, je ne suis pas expert en Gueuze mais c'est sympa. Jow (5237) - The W.G., Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2019

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2019 750 ml bottle vintage 2003, shared by Werckmeister, many thanks! Pours a clear dark golden with a white head. The aroma is funky, moldy, cellary and lightly cheesy with wood, some green apples, some white grapes and some fruity tartness - very smooth. Medium body with a light to medium acidity and a medium tartness - very well balanced. The flavor starts with some acidic notes, lots of wood, leather, light mildly funky notes, some citric notes, green apples and grape skin. Finishes dry with lots of wood and tart. Overall very smooth with a good complexity.

Flaska drucken på Moeder Lambic Orginal, 2011 vintage. En riktigt snygg, torr, krispig och komplex Gueuze med medelstorsyra, en hel del funk och en fin fruktighet med äpplen, kvitten och aprikoser. Mycket mycket gott drucken i en miljö som gjorde den rättvisa. Tide (7160) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2018

Bottle from the brewery. I think I kept it for more than 2 years before opening this now. Pours yellow, some carbonation but not much foam. Nose is just insane, funky, sour and all these autumn harvest funk elements, barnyard and horse sweat. Taste has some light acidity but not too much, also sweetness. Great balance, overall ultimately drinkable, only wish I had some more of it in stock! Juks (3872) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 30, 2018
