TBone (18554) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2006
[email protected]’06. Vintage 1999. Orange color, no head. Sour, slightly earthy, trefoil and hints of hay and barnyard. Sour, fruity, very wineous taste. Acidic fruity flavors make this very enjoyable. Long fruity-sour aftertaste. Masterpiece - thanks Jacob!

Insane bottle share by Brad at RBSG. Pours orange. White head. Nose/taste of lemon rind, vinegar, very funky tart fruits, orange peel and bready wild yeasts. Funk is very sour and full of intense vinegar. Medium body.

yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2008 Bottle, 75cl corked, at Plan B, Copenhagen. Thx to MiP. An orange, unclear beer with a minimal white head. Funky nose with horseblanket and citrus. Citrus, mostly lemon, dominates the flavor, tart and funky, medium mouthfeel, very astringent. Very long lemony finish. A gorgeous beer, intensely sour and citric, a real palate cleanser. RAting: 8-4-8-4-17-4.1. (080913)

Bottled at RBESG-06, GTN. (1999 vintage, thx Jacob.) Hazy, orange beer with some white bubbles around the rim. Sourness, yeast, cellar, apples, grass and citrus in the aroma. The flavor is wonderful, intensely sour, with citrus, apples, grass and lemon. Really palate-cleansing. Vauw! It kicks you in your mouth and throat. Amazing! Almost too much. (060826)

Benzai (16919) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2017
Sampled from bottle shared by Kurt @ Belgium in a Box. Thanks! Unclear orange color, no head. Aroma is quite fruity with slight tart hints. Flavor is very strong, acidic, very sour and sharp unripe fruits. Hmm once you get used to it it's pretty nice but for me personally the sharp sourness is too much.

brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 29, 2012
This is the 1989 vintage. Pours a hazed golden orange color with a small white head. A definite cork aroma, but not really detrimental. Quite lactic with a pleasant funky quality. Lots of grass and green apple skins, musty as well. Lactic tartness is evident, but there is a mild vinegar note. Surprising amounts of oak with some mild cork flavors. Quite a bit of lemon, grass, and apple. Overall, a nice (old) gueuze.

Dedollewaitor (16543) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
My Rating # 2100. 75cl bottle. Pours unclear golden with a small head & lacings. Nose is dry, tart, vinegar & leather. Woody & crisp. Oily & sticky palate. Fruity taste - some orange, tartness & lovely oakyness. Just as good as hoped for. Thanks to the guys at Plan B!

djd07 (16289) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2015
1999 bottle thanks to Craig. Pours a cloudy orange gold with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong wood, funk, rubber, lemon. Medium mouth, great funk, grape, wood, light tartness, held up very well, really enjoyed this one.

4.4
Scopey (16264) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2011
1992 vintage at the 20th Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. It pours hazy dark yellow/amber, with moderate carbonation and a thin fizzy white head. The nose is clove rock, light floral, light smoke, wood, varnish, barbeque, HP sauce, soy sauce, tamarind and farmyard. The taste is wood, sour lemon and lots of sour berry: redcurrant, raspberry, strawberry, red apple and blackberry, with a dry-tart finish. There is some pleasant alcohol warmth, low oxidation and high acidity in the finish. This has truly stood the test of time, the complexity and flavours are amazing and yet it is so drinkable. I reckon I could polish a whole bottle of this off myself.

3.7
MiP (16054) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
1999 bottle, 5.2%. Yeasty and funky aroma, good citricness. Cloudy orange colour, no head. Good sour flavour, slightly funky. Quite vinegary, dry finish.
