Solid sour style beer. Nothing overwhelming or too exciting or different, but a nice easy drink. Would recommend for a backyard BBQ or tailgate.

Rami Rami is drinking a Gueuze 1981 by Brouwerij De Troch at Grochów
Duzo kwasnosci, bez octu, nieco owocow a la jablka, prawie plaskie co2, nieco obory, nieco skory, ale malo, sciagajace, pojawia sie slodycz (w sensie slodki aromat, te jablka chyba)

Rami Rami: W cholere wytrawne w ustach
Rami Rami: Nawet z minusem ta czworka, ale niewatpliwie doswiadczenie mistyczne
Rami Rami: Piwo z przed stanu wojennego :)
Kapsel is drinking a Gueuze 1981 by Brouwerij De Troch - Fajnie kwaśne, lekkie owoce, praktycznie bez wysycenia, lekkie nuty stajenne. Niesamowite doświadczenie. teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 8, 2016
37.5cl bottle shared at DHVL. Bottle from the 90’s. It pours a clean orange color with a minimal layer of white bubbles. Aroma is lightly sweet with oxidised notes of caramel and toffee and medium tangy funky, lightly acidic, with basement mold, musty notes. Taste is more geared towards the sweet caramel notes, with soft stone fruits, melon, lemon peel, green apples, some funk and barnyard. Light to medium bodied, with a silky mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Overall, very interesting and glad to have had a chance to try ClarkVV (6710) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 22, 2016

Deep copper-orange, good clarity, with a small film of white bubbles that show low retention.
Very earthy, somewhat funky (horseblanket, sweat, cellar, must) nose is fairly well integrated between various acids and does show a touch of brett even. Seems fairly lactic, with a hard, yogurt/cheese rind-like character that is somewhat softened by a honey-caramel sweetness itself being a bit stale/oxidized.
In the mouth, it’s sweet again, with a strong honey-like backbone, with notes of oxidized caramel and bits of simple sugar. Quite fruity and oaky, with strawberry, apple and lemon notes leading to a bit of sour acetic character and ending moderately lactic, acidburn lingering. Fairly well-balanced, quite easygoing, but with enough acidity to signify a lambic. Carbonation is light, but still apparent, giving a frizzante-like character. No alcohol noted. Interesting, and in strong condition for its age, but nothing terribly compelling here and a bit sweet/saccharine-like at points.

Bottle. 1980 vintage? Sediment in an orange pour. Actually some carbonation. Light fruit, tart, wild aromas. Flavors are funky, wild tart and oak tones. PotjeBier (3351) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2015
Small sample from bottle in the Beer Geeks bus from Vleteren, apparently 28 years old? Yallow color, hazy. Aroma’s: sour, wood, tannines. Flavor is sour, woody. Light bodied, enough carbonation. Just a good gueuze, hard to believe this was that old. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle 750ml. [1999 vintage]
Pours clear blond/golden with low to no white head. Aroma is of apricots, vegetables, apples, menthol, cardboard. Taste is of menthol, some citrus, cardboard. Palate: Very low carbonation. Light body. Overall: Over the hill, by alot it would appear. Feels old. Not gross considering the age. czar (9094) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
