30/06/2011 Birra+ (Vintage 2005). Degustazione da Birra+. Ambrata chiara, lievemente torbida, buona schiuma biancastra, abbastanza persistente. Aroma intenso acidulo, con note agrumate di limone e di pane. In bocca è morbida, acida ma non eccessiva, complessa, con note agrumate di limone. Corpo medio, buona carbonazione. Geuze decisamente interessante, invecchiata magnificamente.

375 ml bottle @ home, 2011 edition. Hazy orange color. Off white head with a small layer retention. Aroma’s: sour, wood, sour apples. Retronasal it’s fairly mild sour, woody tannines. Flavor is sour, but not puckering, fruity, apples, woody. Alcohol is noticably stronger than most regular geuzes. Medium bodied. Long finish with light woody bitterness. Proof that a great geuze doesn’t have to me mega rare and crazy expensive.

Rocznik 2013: Piwo w kolorze pomaranczowo zoltym z piana ktora znika natychmiast po przelaniu do szkla. W aromacie kwasne dzikie nuty, stajnia i kon polaczone z agrestem. W smaku dosc kwasne ale nie przegiete, prawie bez goryczki z wysyceniem na dosc wysokim poziomie. Czuc nuty drewna, znowu taki jeszcze niedojrzaly agrest i zielone porzeczki. Bardzo orzezwia pomimo dosc konkretnej zawartosci alkoholu.

ardeo (425) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2017
Ma 2e gueuze de la soirée et seulement ma 3e en ’rating’. Belle orange à mousse blanche et fines bulles. Nez fruité, vinaigre, citron, raisin, herbes, orange et pomme verte. Bouche : aigre (acide) mais ronde sur les fruits et les flaveurs vont surtout vers le raisin et la pomme verte, grosse carbonatation, finale fraîche et persistante. Bonne aussi (comme la 1e avec +0.2 pour l’aspect et l’"overall"). Et très digeste pour une bière titrant les 8% ...ah bon !!!?

375 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden with a large, but quickly disappearing head. The aroma is medium sour and fruity with sour berries, unripe gooseberries and raspberries and some pear and lightly yeasty (leather). Medium body with a lively carbonation, a medium sourness and a light bitterness. Lightly alcoholic. The flavor is fruity with lemon, peach, tart berries. Dry finish.

2012 Bottle. Golden orange with a almost no head. Aroma of horse blanket, citrus, oak, sour fruit - mostly green apples. Taste is the same with notes of more oak, some nutty bitterness and muskyness. Nice tartness in the aftertaste.

kaserov (744) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 9, 2017
Color dorado anaranjado, turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa y ligeramente efervescente (la efervescencia está perfectamente calibrada). Aroma ácido suave (no vinagre), frutal, madera. En boca es de una acidez muy manejable, con frutos rojos presentes, buena presencia de madera al final de trago junto con un ligerísimo amargor que empieza a mitad de trago y continúa hasta el final. Seca, aunque tampoco demasiado. Postgusto ácido suave. La boca pide más y más. Rica, aunque recuerdo que la Kriek era más ácida y menos equilibrada pero más sabrosa.

Bottled 2015. Prefect blend of lambics. Very subtle and a high complexity. I love the balance between the sourness, the softness of the oak and a light bitterness. New things keep coming up. Absolutely lovely.

Not the most sour or dry, but pleasant and fairly high alcohol content. Full bodied for a Gueze.
