Bottle. Cloudy golden with tinny white head. Medium and very pleasant aromas of barnyard, wood, bretts and some citrus notes. Light to medium body, right carbonated, very refreshing, little bit salty with good sour finish. Really enjoyed.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2017 26 Jan 2017: 2007 vintage sampled at the brewery. Very complex notes on this 10 year old vintage, much softer, despite the higher carbonation, fruitier and rounder. Nice!

75cl bottle, at home. Semi-hazy orange pour with a thin white head with poor retention and visible carbonation rising to the top. Notes of lambic funk, barnyard, hay, apple cider, macerated apples, pears, light vinegar, baking soda, white grapes, some hop-like bitterness. Medium bitter and medium sour. A really refreshing gueuze. 4/5

MatiF96 (177) - POLAND - DEC 31, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2017 Złociste, lekko zamglone. Drobna biała piana dość szybko redukuje się do krążka. Bogaty aromat zmieniający się wraz z ogrzaniem. Jest dzikość, czuć bretty, drewno staje się bardzo wyraźne. Do tego lekki słd i kwaśność. W smaku wytrawnie. Jest kwaśność, trochę cytrusowa. Na finiszu lekka pestkowa cierpkość. Bardzo fajne, złożone ale przy tym lekkie piwo.

Aroma: Heavy earthy funk, wet oak, damp dusty basement, cardboard & cheese as it warms. Taste: Firm sourness, it has that damp earthy funk again in the the flavour and also has a heavy mineral character to it. Overall: Very complex gueuze, Ive had bottles of this before but cant remember them having such an earthy damp funk forward aroma and flavour to them.

Olo13 (200) - POLAND - DEC 28, 2016
Great wild aroma, a lot of horse and other brett aromas. Moderate sourness. Great taste, citric, brett, less sour than I expected, but a lot of great lambic notes.

Jashiu (933) - Gdask, POLAND - DEC 27, 2016
750ml bottle from sklepzpiwem.pl Gdańsm.
2015 vintage

Aroma of horse sweat and hay. Some white fruit and citrus fruit aromas. Surprisingly practically no vinegar.
Taste is citric and a bit bitter, rather dry and sour.
Very drinkable yet I was expecting more complexity

MelvinKalksma (1462) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, wood, citrus.

Appearance:
Clear/hazy golden/amber beer with a slight off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts slightly/medium swert with malts and wood; ends slightly dry and sour with citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather complex and balanced, but lacks intensity. Even for its abv, the beer is really mellow and fails to create a lasting impression. Would almost say it is too easy to drink and could have been much more extreme.

375 ml Bottle from share. Cloudy pale golden with soft bubbly head. Sour notes from the get-go, brett, mild fruity aromas. Taste follows with more of the brett, soft tartness, some barrel notes, Light and airy. And delicious
