37.5 cL bottle, thanks to Jeppe. Pours hazy orange with a slowly diminishing off-white head. Aroma is barnyard and orange fruity. Light wood note. Flavour starts solid citric before a dry wooden note appears. Light orange fruity finish with a that classic brett/yeasty tartness. Dry and wooden yet smooth and fruity too - nice balance.

Ungstrup (36943) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2006
An unclear orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is super acidic with notes of grapefruit and wood, and the flavor is also lovely acidic with lots of grapefruit notes, and with a dry metallic end.

oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled (thanks omhper). Firstly, the cork flew in the wooden roof, and almost broke it, so beware of high pressure. A bit hazy golden colour, mediumsized head. Aroma is sourness and fruits. Flavour is dry and sour oak. Extremely smooth to drink. Long sour fruitish aftertaste. Just superb!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2006
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Pours a hazy honey golden with a creamy, off-white head. Distinct acidity in the nose, but also fruit, barnyard, manure and horse sweat - all the usual Brett characteristics. Light body with lots of fruitiness, citrus - grapefruit in particular - and acidity. But actually surprisingly smooth and mellow. This is not the kinda gueuze that makes your tongue crumble. Thanks to BierKnig for sharing. 100306

omhper (24797) - Tyres, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2006
Bottled. Hazy golden, firm fluffy head. Distinct citric nose where barnyard is very evident. Soft, lively and juicy with concentrated flavours. Acidic and ultra-complex, yet frefreshingly drinkable. A super premium gueuze.

21st May 2008. Nice Geuze for me (a non sour lover). Not too sharp or dry but not much fruit either. A Pleasant puckerer! Goes down very easily with a lip smack at the end!

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2010 Bottle dated 09 04 2004. Cloudy strw colored with medium white head that fades quickly. Aroma of citrus and dust. Full bodied. Taste of sour grapefruit and must. Beautiful. Vintage 2007, courtesy of Armand and his wife - thank you! Shared with Bastien, Arne & Cameron on the day we crated the Schaerbeekse. Highly complex, lots of character, very tasty.
