ineedbeer (2298) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Poured from a 750 ml bottle.
Aroma is soft with a mineral note. Some light barnyard, earthy notes. Light herbal character. Hints of citrus, underripe stone fruit and green tropical fruit. Faint oak notes and light oxidation.
Pours a slightly hazy, copper orange with a medium sized, white head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges where it lingers. No lacing or legs.
Flavor is moderately acidic, but fairly soft. Some oxidation coming through in the form of cork and wet cardboard. Light oak and mineral notes. Medium light barnyard funk and herbal notes. Light fruit notes with a bit of a red apple and pear note. Some faint citrus and stone fruit notes.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice gueuze, but not a particularly amazing one. The oxidation is starting to take over the flavor a bit and the fruit notes are slightly odd. Better as it opens up. rouhlas (3986) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUL 13, 2016

Still wonderfully carbonated, with a soft golden-honey-marmalade appearance and a white head atop that slowly recedes to the edges.
Yet again, I loved the stuff, having not had it since 2006 or 2007. Here it still has its big, acidic bite, full of hard cheese rind-like lactic acidity, wood and lime. Yet it certainly has softened somewhat, as expected. Really hasn’t lost much, if anything, unless you really want that young, punishingly sour experience. I can certainly take it or leave it, and this still has plenty of sourness left in the tank, with tight carbonation and no alcohol or flaw. It looked like this was going to be the run-away favorite/best bottle of the night until we opened, yep, Blauw. That one’s balance, and deep but mild flavors outdo this one by a bit, I think, though of course much of it is preference. Glad to see that these beers (when stored properly) are still going VERY strong.
Amber pour. Small off white head. Little lacing. Huge oaky aroma with notes of honey, earth, cork. Tart, honey, corky. Another beauty. j12601 (13298) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle at Max & Jess’s for an impromptu barbecue thing when I was down for Comic Con.. Pours a faintly hazed amber with a thin white head. Big funky yeast with dirty barnyard, faintly floral. Medium bodied, earthy and funky, big and yeasty. Long musky yeast, big and dirty. Amazing. knickskicks (1168) - - NOV 25, 2015
Golden pour. Nose is citrus funky, basement, light oxidation. Taste is tart citrus, lingering tartness on the finish with some bitterness.
