koleminer20 (3348) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting Kyle finally made it to at Mickeys on December 01. 750 mL bottle, 2012 vintage. The pour is a nice hazy golden orange color with a thick white head that slowly recedes with a light soapy lace left. The aroma is pretty damn good. There is a nice dry oak and a good citrus acidity up front. A good mineral addition comes through with a lovely funkiness and a hint of brett. The flavor is much of the same. Its balanced, sour, tart, citric, funky, and just everything you want. The mineral addition is a little surprising, but well balanced. The mouth feel is a touch heavy for what it should be and well carbonated. The aftertaste is lingering funkiness and citric acid. Its a great beer.

Felix67 (8) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2016 does not count
Vintage 2012 bottle 0.75 lt. Colour between orange and amber a little hazy with thin head. Very complex aroma and taste. Spicy aroma with light notes of leather, farmyard, mushrooms, green apple, hay and slightly vinegary too. Taste starts with tart note to progress towards notes of tangerine and citrus. It's ready to drink but it should improve with ageing. I loved the complexity and the quite long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ciocanelu (2226) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 30, 2016
2012 version, at Lambik-o-droom. Slightly hazy dark golden color with creamy beige head. Aroma starts with hay, dry meadow flowers, unripe stonefruits and some lemon. Taste starts tart upfront with unripe fruits, but also with a fruit pits, seeds and skin bitterness. Hay and farmhouse notes throughout, funky but not too extreme. Light to medium body, dry, light to medium carbonation. A really well rounded gueuze, sour but quite easy to drink, funky but not cloying.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2016 2008 version in beersel. Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with bubbly white head that dissipates slowly. Aroma of huge funk notes and mild tart lemony citrus. Taste is more balanced with big funk and acidity, hugely complex. A very nice treat to try this.
