Finn (6824) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2011
Fra flaske i Hanssens Artisanaal under Tour de Geuze 2011. Ser ut som eplejuice. Uklar. Lavt skum. Syrlig fruktaroma. Samme med smaken. Sprudlende. Lett, litt syrlig ettersmak.

LIVEFAST (62) - Mount Misery, Valley Forge, - NOV 23, 2011
750mL poured into the Tilquin tumbler. Pours a light copper/goldenrod with a finger of bone dry head. Aromas of sharp brett, hay, body odor, and lemon. This geuze is still pretty new...notes of sharp, complex funk, cheese, lemon peel, white grapes. I think a few years will round this geuze out nicely.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Pours a hazy golden amber color. Aromas of wood, grass, yeast, some fruit and spice. Taste is yeasty, sour and medicinal, can really taste the funk in this one. Outstanding!!!

nearbeer (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 3, 2011
750 ml. 2011 bottle, bb 28 10 2030. Opaque orange amber with a large pillow of spongy foam. Aroma is both fresh and musty: grape must, white wine, sharp cheese, earthy spice, resin, beeswax. Taste is white wine, sour grape, cranberry, light cheese, and some earthy resin. Medium body is watery, tart and dry with acidity, and has medium-high carbonation. Pretty much like a nice white wine and aged cheese blended into a martini glass with a dash of peppery vinegar.

75 cl bottle vintage 2009 @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, rated on 07.08.2010
Sour and fresh aroma with earthy notes and some sour apples. Flavour is sour with grapefruit, sour apples, leathery and earthy notes. Feels actually like a blend of everything. Still very good.
8+4+8+3+15 = 3.8

75 cl bottle vintage 2011 @ home. Bottle #023195, BBE 28.10.2030
Aroma has green apples, grapefruit, earthy tones and some oranges. Feels slightly musty. Foamy and rather creamy palate for a gueuze. Flavour has orange, grapefruit, some green apples and citrus. Also earthy notes. Finishes with lactic tones. Nice, could be even more aggressive on the sourness though.
8+3+8+3+16 = 3.8

Another epic bottle shared by darkguardian at Ryans TOSPH. Cloudy pee colored pour. Funk and barnyard aromas. A well balanced geuze with lemon, citrus, and barnyard funk flavors.

Bottle shared at Tower of Sour Power. Cant remember who brought this one. By this time of the night I pretty much stopped taking notes and just listed what I drank. Did I like it? Yeah I did but I cant recall the super specifics of this one.

Gary (1931) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2011
(2011 750ml)A geuze orgy of differing beers that marries to make a classy bier . nose suggests sweaty feet, cheesey hops..white grapes..tart green apple , shit and barnyard intentions. In the mouth its mellow at this age , sweaty cheese ,must ,brett , notable richness shows up to make this complex ,rounded , very drinkable and pretty excellent.

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours a cloudy apricot color with a nice fluffy white dense head. Nice lace. Peachy, fruity aroma, slightly white wine like. Starts with a nive sourness that then builds to a slight bitterness note. Light mouthfeel. Overall, I was surprised a little at this one, on one hand it is pretty tasty and easy drinking but on the other I find it lacks a certain depth seen in other Lambic. I like it but wish it hand just a little more something to it.
