Amazing bright citrus with a more noticeable acidity then Golden Blend. Backing funky minerality. Phenomenal.

cmacklin (1008) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2017
375ml bottle. (2013 vintage) Pours a clear orange-gold with a thin, short lived, fully dissipating, white head that leaves no lace. Aroma of horse blanket, brett, tart apples, lemon, grapefruit, apricot and oak. Sweet, acidic, fruity flavour of lemon, grapefruit, orange, green apple, white wine, brett, horse blanket, caramel and oak with a dry, sour finish. Light body with a watery to oily texture and flat carbonation. Very nice, lots of complexity.

Maakun (4629) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle shared. May 2013 vintage. Bit hazy deep orange golden with no head but some big bubbles on top and small bubbles clinging to the glass. Massive funk and hay, apricot, white pepper, pineapple, light cookie dough, some soft cheese, dank earthy notes and soft caramel. Under medium sweet, light sour and very light bitter. Medium bodied with very soft carbonation. Incredible aroma and taste. Crazy good.

Svesse (8137) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2016
(Bottle) Hazy, golden amber colour. Still, with some brief white bubbles. Fruity, sourish nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit, dried apricots, sour grapes, hay, barnyard and funky yeast. Fruity, tart taste with grapefruit, orange, dried apricots, hay, green apples, yeast and a dry and tart finish. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Dry. Solid and well made, the lack of carbonation makes it a touch smoother than the ordinary gueuze. Great beer.

ClarkVV (6213) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 31, 2016
2012 375mL bottle drunk 8/25/16.
Large white head shows good carbonation atop a clear, bright flaxen-gold body.
Soft oak tones intertwine deftly with plentiful brett fruitiness, as easygoing lactic notes enter the mix as well. Graceful aging, hints of honey-like malt and cream-of-wheat character deepen the elegance as well as providing a good backbone. Beautifully balanced, attractive nose eminently invites sniffing, with the brett expression just about as perfect as one can imagine, full of horse blanket, guava, lime, light band aid and leather. Bright and clean with no alcohol or flaw.
Fantastic in the mouth, as expected, as well. Tight carbonation belies the name, as big bursts of juicy fruit and lip-smakcing sourness coat the palate. Great texture, with a nearly chewy, wheat-laden body that shows good dryness and yet still ample maltiness. Leather, lime, guava and other various tropical fruits linger long, with mild to moderate lactic character and soft, woody, oak tannins. Amazing stuff, and very, very different than the 2011 Golden Blend (non doesjel version). This one is far more approachable, but as well, I think its more flavorful and elegant, too.
