bleeng (1682) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Bottle shared at the Feb. Houston RB tasting. Bright hazy yellow. Nose is very tangy, tart, sour, funk. Taste is very bitter, tart, sour, vinegar. High carbonation and too easy to drink. Excellent beer.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Much thanks to bleeng for this beer. Dirty straw color with little head. Nose of sour funk with grapefruit, barrel fermentation. Flavor of grapefruit, lemon, sour and horse blanket. Awesome finish. Thanks Rick.

Muggus69 (2494) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2010
375ml bottle Vintage 2005. Porterhouse, Dublin Fizzy orange body, bit of haze and big bubbly foam. Sharp aroma; grapefruit rind, lemon, wheat, vinous undertones and faint horsy funk. Lively carbonation, lean well-attenuated body, drying texture and good bit of citric acidity. Body is not nearly as tart as nose suggests. Grapefruit citrus balanced with rich hay undertones with alcohol spice and barnyard in the background. Dry finish that lingers but not too brutally. Outstanding lambic!

DeanF (2464) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2010
Pours with huge head just like any good beer should, nice amber-gold colour. Wood chips, horse saddle, lemon, apple, hay on the nose, plenty of complexity here. Taste of wood, leather, fermented fruit juices, tart wheat. Sour finish but dry and not too much that it provokes a gag reflex (once had a lambic that did!). Probably the best geuze to date that I’ve tried.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2010
Interesting geueze and among the strongets of the breed. It’s a tad darker than the usual geueze and some of the bottles have a hint of Flemish Bruin.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 30, 2010
A 2004 bottle I found in 2be in Brugges. Pours a cloudy yellow/orange with a large white head. The aroma is quite funky, like if your made cheese in a race horse stable. The palate brings all kinds of funky subtle flavors. There is horeblanket, citrus, marshmallow, sour cream, straw, and a nice long dry bitter finish. A little over carbonated for the style, but still a stellar brew!

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - JAN 30, 2010
Pours hazy orange with a thick creamy head. Very complex and sour aroma with the smells of yeast and fruits it is very complex. Sour to start with a very citrus and yeasty flavour. finishes very dry with a mild almost bread like flavour. this Lambec is very palatable. I like it.

2004 Bottle, thanks to hobbersr for sharing! Pours murky orange, with a very tall white head, takes forever to dissipate, sheets of lacing. Nose is nice sweaty horse, plus creamy yeast, fresh mandarin orange, white pepper, a bit cheesy, light on the barnyard overall though. Palate is very fresh and tasty, plenty of fruit, plus moderate sourness and a nice creamy blue-cheese character that pervades the palate, especially the finish. Not as complex as say Hannsens, but extremely nice nonetheless.

3.4
awiseman01 (469) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Bottle from Keg Liquors in Clarksville. Pours hazy yellow/golden with minimal foamy white head. Nose is sharp sour lemon tart. Flavor is dry, bitter, sharp sour, lemon abundance and sour tart, very dry finish. Not bad.

4.3
planky84 (3263) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle from beermerchants.com. Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aromas of sour apples, summer fruits, lemon, white wine vinegar. Excellent tart aromas. Flavours of bitter lemon, green apples, acetic, grapefruit. Good, sour, crisp mouthfeel with a tinge of sweetness. Finishes dry, bitter and vaguely hoppy. One of my favourite geuze’s.
