2003 at AlohaCs. Thanks for this. Super sour nose. Aroma was almost perfect. I found myself just breathing in the scent of it and salivating. Very sour/tart. Jumps around in the mouth. Amazing. Yum

2003 vintage 375mL bottle from ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad! Definitely the vintage version, which I have searched long to try. Opened at alohaCs 2008 end of the year tasting. Wow. Very sour. Most people at the party enjoyed this a lot. Lots of carbonation, which combined with the sourness makes the tongue tingle. Very nice peachy tartness.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Bottled, 2003 version. Cloudy orange coloured. Very nice complex nose, fruity, dusty, pleasantly tart. Flavour is quite easy going for a oude geuze, sour but not extreme. Very nice geuze.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
<i>[vintage 2002]</i>
#2 Birthday beer.
Pours clear golden with a medium, frothy, white head. Fine duration lots of bubbles - impressive for a gueuze. Aroma is very nice, some cellar, lots of green apples, funkiness, lactic and citric acids. Still maintains a softness and elegance with just a tad of vanilla and oak. Highish carbonation, super dry mouthfeel. Just a tad on the watery side. Flavour is tart, but not overwhelmingly so, apples, citric and lightly lactic. Very soft and nice, but not near the best gueuzes IMHO.

3.8
BeerandBlues2 (14027) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Vintage 2003. Pours hazy dark yellow with a small, fizzy, white head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, hay, straw, meal), light hops (flowers, grass), average yeast (horse blanket, earth) with notes of grapes and cask. Light bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a sour finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and sourness.
