Dont know how long this bottle hovered in back of the liquor store cooler in Clinton, NJ, but it doesnt have the current label...
Whoa! Big horsey smell when I finally got the slightly moldy cork out of the bottle. Kicked up a big foamy head when I poured it, that quickly subsided as I set up some crackers and blue cheese. Appearance is just like a pilsner, yet somehow more pleasing. That original smell went away, too. Taste combines aspects of a dry champagne and a sour grape juice. Sourness is not distracting, rather, allows more subtle traces of fruits. Cant pick up too much malts or hops, but color is like a good French farmhouse ale. Yeast dregs on bottom add extra note of grape skin tannins.

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

Zeer helder uitziende gueuze. Aroma is citrus en hout. Smaak is in eerste instantie zeer clean en vlak maar barst dan mooi open. Citrus, houterige bitter, hints van citrus. Droge finish. Top.

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.

mariuspoenari (1929) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2017
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.

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 (76) - 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.

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

Medium aroma of malts, wood, citrus.

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

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

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.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Chciałbym mieć w lodwce niekończący się zapas tego cuda. Niesamowita klasa.
