Bouteille de 375 ml, édition 2004. Arômes poussiéreux de brettanomyces et de foin sec. Très belle robe dorée et légèrement trouble, effervescence plutôt active et belle mousse. Plutôt corpulente en bouche, sans être sucrée, la bière met de l’avant la contribution rustique des brettanomyces (cuir, agrumes). On retrouve également une impression d’écorce d’orange. Finale très sèche, légèrement alcoolisée et vaguement métallique. Très intéressant. Dunbar72 (136) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle 37.5cl 2004 at tre små rum. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Stable, whool and root cellar in the aroma, not to sour to the taste. Medium body, dry bitter finish. You can’t find 8% ABV in this beer. A nice one! 77ships (11481) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2011

2011: hazy amber coloured, virtually no head, some lacing, tasted of burned sugar, candy, caramel, moldy fruit, hint of dry sherry, oak, minor tart & more present funk, seemed a bit too old to me, curious how a fresher bottle would have tasted like but it was nice, complex but felt like the moldy fruit & burned sugar dominated a bit too much, lighter bodied, medium carbonation, slightly sticky but still smooth and not hard to drink, bit dry finish ///////////////////////// !!!! This beer does not age well - it is that or there is something wrong with my pallet or I got a bad bottle. I tried another bottle 2 years old and it was absolutely lovely. Increasing the score from 3.5 to 4.6
375ml bottle, vintage 2005 - bottled 2009. Some slight bottle head, poured into a tall magic hat 9 glass. Large white bubbly head, highly carbonated. head takes a while to settle. Bubbly orange pour, sour aroma, some barnyard but very dry - hints of fruit. Sour on the palate, completely dries out your mouth, slightly bitter after taste that lingers along with some alcohol. Decent sour. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2011
(beer tasting @ Monty’s Krown - Rochester, NY: bottle - corked & caged 750 ml - 2004 vintage) Definitely one of the hits of the night. Clear orange pour with a fizzy white head. Lots of carbonation for 7 years old. Huge tart and sour aroma with lots of fruit and pepper still. Flavor starts off big and tart and sour with some light fruits underneath it and a very tart and lingering finish. Incredibly bubbly and carbonated for as old as it is.

Shared at Nashville Beer Summit Vintage 2003 I think. Hazy yellow pour. Nose of wild berries and fruit. Plenty of the funk. But not outrageous. Pepper, spice. Clove. Very vegetal. Excellent for a gueuze which was my least favorite beer style. Examples like this are changing my mind. Rasmus40 (22130) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2011
Cloudy dark yellow with an off-white head. Aroma is very sour and lemon. Flavor is medium sweet and very sour. Extremely dry and astringent finish. Refreshing. 160211 madvike (3305) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2011
2004 vintage, 750ml bottle - The cork pops with nice vigor, and the pour creates a huge fluffy white head on top a slightly hazy yellowish-amber pour. Pleasant lemony acidity on the nose, with light funk, sour green apples, and a nice barnyard/hay funk on the finish. Not too musty, but not devoid of character, either. A mostly easy-drinker, the taste actually starts off a bit syrupy before drying out into a light grapefruit sourness. Mineral and citrus rind comes in on the finish, making a bitter, dry, lightly puckering end to a satisfying beer. Surprised this is 8%, and you don’t really taste it, save for the slightest heat on the finish. A bit fizzy in the mouth, but the pleasant carbonation that coats the mouth and leaves a little film, rather than the sharp carbonation that detracts from the taste. A beer I could see drinking a lot of, as its lack of complexity is offset by its smooth balance. cucuma (89) - kontich, BELGIUM - FEB 8, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2011 The best blend from boon’s geuzes.
A sourish geuze with the smooth bitters of grapefruit. olsvammel (7312) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2011
UPDATED: APR 30, 2016 Bottle at O?Connors in Uppsala. It poured a slightly hazyy golden liquid with a small head with big buggles. Flavour of cellar, fruits and apples. Sour and dry aroma. Semi-harsh mouthfeel with a high amount of carbonation. Interesting beer but not great. Rerated at stalllyktan. Much better!
