TaxiDriver (1775) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle, 2004. The aroma is sour, strong yeast and fruity, very nice. The head is medium large, white and creamy-foamy with a long duration. The body is cloudy and orange. The taste is very sour and refreshing with a medium duration. The beer is very dry in the mouth and has a astringent finish with a normal duration. The body is light to medium. fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle shared with Alex of Brasserie 4:20, thanks again Alex for sharing a special bottle with me. Pours hazy yellow with a thin head. Great farmhouse aroma with some sour citris notes as well. Sour funk all over the place with a complex finish that lasted for a solid minute. I am usually not crazy about sours, but this was unique and better than other gueuze I have had. durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Bottle shared by Sam the Turd (thanks, Mr. Ferguson!). A tasty treat, to be sure. Hazy orange/gold pour with surprisingly huge bubbly white head. Tart wood, lemon, cherry, peach, dust, hay, barnyard, love, joy, transcendence. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Vintage version dated 13/04/2002. The look is cloudy, peached colored, with a light white head. Very inviting. The smell is very woody, oak, fruits, tart, old smelling, funk, and barnyard. Very nice. The taste is acidic, fruits, wood. Good carbonation level. Nice dry finish. jkwalking05 (4743) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2009

(750ml bottle, “Vintage version” dated 13/04/2002) Pours a clear yellow body with a tall white head. Aroma of wood, mustiness, barnyard, horse blanket, light grapefruit, cork, and apple. Flavor of citrus (light acidity), earthiness, and brett with a carbonated mouthfeel and dry wood finish. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye (yes, this is the vintage, bottled 13/04/02, with "vintage" clearly labeled on the bottle). Pours with a huge, foamy, off-white head that lasts over a hazy orange body. Aroma of funk, apple, caramel, fruity esters, wood, must, library books, earthiness, and some honey dew and honey suckle when it warms. Taste is sour, woodsie, woddy, with must, light strawberry, light citrus. Very clean overall, but not as adventurous as the regular oude gueze. Not particularly puckering. Fizzy carbonation.

37,5 cl bottle. 12APR05 bottled. Nice pop at opening. Looks like gold. Not convinced that it’s better than the standard 3 fonteinen gueuze. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Bottle shared by Turdferguson - thanks, Sam! Vintage 2003. Gorgeous bright orange pour, classic gueuze appearance, with a bit of cloudy yeast and a nice lasting head to it. The flavor is really vibrant, with an intense acidity to it that isn’t aggressive so much as it is deep and suffusing. Lovely. xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2009

Flavor is big tart funk with a good amount of dirtiness, lemon, orange, obvious grapefruit, medium acidity, really dry, Lively carbonation on medium, tart body. Very tasty and with out many vinegar notes, very nice.
