Bottle shared by Rciesla. Thanks!!! Pours a beautiful deep golden with lively carbonation and a massive sticky white head- fades slowly. Aroma is very powerful at first with the high carbonation- lemon zest, tropical fruit, mineral- sauvignon blanc, champagne like, bready malts, good horsey yet cleanish funk along with some moderately smelly cheese- mushroom- truffle oil, and vegetable ash as it warms a bit. More cheese and tropical fruits in the flavor, some horsey and leathery funk with mineral earth tones, lemon and lime juice- citric acid acidity, lactic and moderately sour the whole way through- nothing too mouth-puckering but definitely big and acidic. good acidic prickliness on the tongue in the end along with slight salt spray, lactic acid, and some woody astringent tones which work well. Awesome- big, and complex- very powerful. Awesome. Compared side by side to the 50th, 1999, and even the 2000 this still wins for me. Thanks again Ryan.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2012 My 2300th rating: 75cl bottle. Bottled December 1998. Pours slight unclear orange amber with a good white lasting foam. Plenty of carbonation still. The aroma is smooth and mellow, Sour, dusty, acidic and grapes. Complex and wonderfully balanced. Barnyard and woody notes. Smooth and full bodied. Dry and crisp. So mellow, smooth and complex. Worth the wait, time and money. Hell yeah. Re-rate: Bottle @ Too many geuzes only one toilet, Ulfborg 2012. Mould and cellar. Aged. Barnyard and dust. Subdued and smooth. If you have a bottle drink it now!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Hazy golden with a fine little creamy off-white head leaving laces. Classic gueuze aroma of horse blanket and manure. Medium body with very dry Brett accents, fruitiness and even a light underlying bitterness. A very mellow gueuze which is pleasantly drinkable and not excessively sour. 211008

thewolf (12300) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2008
Bottle. [thank you sooo much, Yespr]
Pours a muddy, pale orange with no head to speak of. Aroma has oranges, good tartness, apples, wood and a slight spicy sweet edge. Light, soft carbonation, pretty dry, but with a stunning creaminess and softness. The flavour is wonderfully fruity, some oranges, good tartness, super oakiness, a touch of vanilla and very dry. Very good, especially the mouthfeel.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2008 Bottle. [Tasting @ Papsoe 20-10-2008] Vintage 1998. Huge fin bubbled white head that mostly lasted. Excellent display of lacework. Cloudy golden color. Aroma of leather, barnyard, vinegar, fruit, wheat. Heavy complexity with notes of vinegar, citrus, leather, mild soap, perfume. Very smooth and almost creamy texture which I guess is quite unique for a Geuze. Quite full bodied with a surprisingly sparkling carbonation and very dry texture. Moderated acidic flavor with good counter sweetness. Lingering dry and smooth sour finish. Huge thanks to Jesper for this one!
