Achel (485) - Ioannina, GREECE - FEB 2, 2017
Hazy light bronze, robust ever-lasting finely bubbled head that glaciates its way down the glass. The retention on this beer was remarkable. Aroma is awesome and ever-changing throughout the drinking experience. Initially lots of basement must and cobwebs, followed variously by notes of light vinegar, petroleum, white grape juice, horseblanket, and dried out corn stalks in autumn. Flavours are complex as expected, but are centered around a surprisingly toasty malt base (not expected). Lots of funky horseblanket, light pear and green grape fruit, some yoghurty lactic acidity, light vinegar, light acetone. Finish is mildly sour and astringent. I was anticipating this with high expectations, and I was not disappointed. Absolutely fantastic

Vinx (121) - ITALY - JAN 30, 2017
Citric, lactic, peppery, funky, fruity, pale, hazy, definitely sour but pleasant and tremendously refreshing, light bitterness, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, very long lasting astringent nice finish. Its hard to describe a beer like that, just try it and enjoy. I found it in keg and I had two glasses because one wasnt enough to get me satisfied.

Kapsel (171) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 22, 2017
W aromacie stajnia, skra, dzikość, bretty, nuty drewna. W smaku mega orzeźwiające, kwaśne, lekko cierpkie w posmaku. Świetne piwo!

jvhemert (383) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Bottle (750ml) at 6 degrees North Edinburgh AROMA: bread, barnyard, dough, APPEARANCE: pale, hazy, white foam, minimal head, TASTE: light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium sourness, PALATE: medium body, thin feel, lively, astringent, long finish, OVERALL: very nice Geuze; barnyard aroma works with medium sourness. Not to repeat as reeks havoc on the system.

cinek (178) - POLAND - JAN 16, 2017
butelka/strefa piwa. złote z obfitą drobnopęcherzykową, białą pianą, utrzymująca się do końca picia. aromat stajni, obory, mokrego siana, wyczuwalane rwnież nuty ziołowo-cytrusowe, no i jest też funky, wszystko w miarę na podobnym poziomie, bez dominacji żadnej ze składowych. w smaku umiarkowanie kwaśne, przechodzące w wytrawność z ziołowo-łodygowym finiszem. ciekawe, duża przyjemność z picia. jeżeli dobrze pamiętam to w maju 2016 butelkowane
