readbaron (78) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Thanks to Apanbosse for this unusual treat. Nose is funky - earthy horseblankets, lactic sourness, and a touch of sweet sugar - quite nice. Sadly, the taste doesnt live up to the delicious aroma - it starts off tart but quickly slips into a peppery burnt sugar flavor with a touch of clove. Really unusual, and not bad - just kind of weird. Not at all what I expected. Also a touch of alcohol - not unexpected from a 10% beer. Its fairly sticky and flat - could have used more carb. Im glad I was able to try this, but doubt Ill be on the lookout for more.

jgb9348 (6040) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2017
2012 Bottle (37,5 cL) Clear and ever so slightly hazy bronze and copper coloured body with a very thin off-white head. Aroma of sour gueuze with a touch of yeast, bread, grain and alcohol, but finishing with the sourness - nice! Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence up front with a nice sour quality that hits up front and then shows a lot of the bread, yeast, grain, alcohol and very elegant grassy and biere de garde flavours that finishes with the added punch of a gueuze. Aftertaste is nice and pungent with the yeast and sour qualities, but very smooth, especially for the alcohol content, but makes sense with the age in the bottle and the sediment. Overall, a nice and rich, elegant beer that shows very nicely and has some great flavours and subdued, complex notes that only touch near the finale. Great to sample and well worth saving! I sampled this 37,5 cL corked and caged bottle as #9 of my set of 13 special tastings for celebrating #6000, with this one being extra special, since the vintage is the year of my first born kid! I sampled this 37,5 cL corked and caged (2012 bottle) purchased from Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium on 18-January-2015 for 3,50 sampled at home in Washington on the other side of the Atlantic on 21-March-2017.

marcus (9960) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 22, 2016
2007 bottle at Heeren van Liedekercke. Pours golden with a bubbly white head and a sourish fruit aroma. There is a mellow, but rather flat sour malt flavor that is dry all the way through. Slightly bitter and quite interesting. Blended with 3 Fonteinen Gueuze by Lotsrbol.

SkillsFactory (676) - ITALY - JAN 7, 2016
2012, 10,6%, 37,5 cl. Color pesca con riflessi dorati, resa quasi impenetrabile dai lieviti, schiuma bianca poco persistente. Aroma di stallatico, acidula, susina e mela verde, leggero limone, polvere, leggerissimo legno leggermente umido, frumento. Al palato si ripresentano le stesse note fruttate miste a stallatico e polvere, coda di frumento arricchita da un amaro erbaceo molto evidente e da un discreto piccante etilico. Corpo medio-pieno, non molto carbonata, texture leggermente oleosa, pericolosamente beverina.

b3shine (8658) - Indiana, USA - NOV 17, 2015
375 ml bottle to teku (2012 vintage, shared by Dogbones). Looks solid; a cloudy orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing and some sediment at the bottom. Smells like a sweeter geuze with nicely balanced notes of funk and citrus. Tastes like it smells with a bit of a floral presence as well. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied. Unique and enjoyable.
