Scopey's rating

Scopey (14511) - Croydon, Greater London, - OCT 2, 2012
2011 edition, bottle number 05292. It pours hazy golden yellow, with a thin fizzy white head. The nose is barnyard, sour apricot, tangerine, orange, sour yoghurt and Savlon. The taste is pleasantly tart, lemon, white grape skin, green apple, sour apricot, lightly acidic, hay, floral aspect, touch of bitterness, wood, barnyard and a hint of underlying sweetness holds it all together. Long, tart finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Not the sourest of geuzes, but for me the balance is perfect. Complex, yet highly drinkable. Bravo HORAL!

Bottle shared at Matt’s. Light in body with funk and barnyard and lemon and deep orange pour.

Brewhemia (309) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2017
Almost clear light amber with lasting off white head. Fantasticly complex and balanced aroma of cornflakes, bread, citrus and vinegar etc. Not overly acidic. The taste is low in sweetness and bitterness and has a distinct but balanced acidity. Finish and aftertaste follows the same flavors and is balanced all the way through. Great beer.

ClarkVV (6642) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 14, 2017
2015 bottle shared by Johnnnie on 5/20/17.
Clear, well-carbonated, bronze-golden with strong copper tints and a white head atop that fades slowly to a ring.
I’d be curious to know what the proportions of each blendery’s lambic are used in this. From the nose I get a LOT of leather, cider, light green apple, sweat, mineral and hay-like grains. These things I associate most strongly with Boon, Oud Beersel and to some extent, Lindemans). It doesn’t have the vivacious, bright Brett character of 3F, though of course, there is certainly light Brett in the nose. And nor does it have the stronger lactic acidity I associate with De Cam, Timmermans and Hanssens. Whatever the case, it’s very approachable with a surprisingly large amount of malt character (rich honey, hay, wheat-like cereal) to easily balance the tart, lemony Brett and light lactic sourness. A bit of farm-y character, though it’s more cider and mineral-dominated. No alcohol or flaw.
Bright and lemony with light cider on the edges and a good lactic sourness that fails to completely pucker the mouth or strip the enamel. It’s well-balanced showing the aforementioned honey-like malt with even a touch of biscuity wheat. Lots of musty, cellar quality as it warms and breathes. Doesn’t display the sheer force of intense lambic flavor that 3F and Cantillon do, for me, as there’s a lot of, while pleasant, extraneous flavors at work. Slightly bigger body than I’d like, could use just a bit more dryness. Otherwise, very lovely and I’m sure much more approachable than most lambics.

Juks (449) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 9, 2017
750ml bottle 2017, thanks Tanno. Pours almost clear golden, small white head. Vinegar, green apple, white wine in aroma. Taste is tart, raw gooseberry, mild barrel, green apple and vegetables... Medium bodied, below average carbo. Wateriness in aftertaste, some vinegar. Meh, expected more, but still enjoyable.

3.8
phfyysik (1253) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUN 8, 2017
Megablend 2017. Pours yellow with light white head. Aroma is sour, some shit, mould, bitter notes, fruits. Taste is acid, vinegar, some marinated vegetables, light bitterness, strong aftertaste, clear citric acid notes. Super beer!

3.9
Speko (403) - DENMARK - JUN 4, 2017
Bottle 0,75. Thanks to Slacker. Pours hazy orange with small white head. Lots of fruits, some citrus, mild sourness, very nice. Light body and average to high carbonation.

4.2
ironcontra (210) - POLAND - MAY 29, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2017 A hint of yeasty funk on the nose, beautiful dark orange with a good bit of head for the style, white wine coloring over the gueuze flavorings, not overwhelmingly sour, perfect carbo for refreshment

3.9
erikaraeb (138) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 29, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2017 Rich orange colour with lots of quick-fading head. Pleasant carbonation throughout the sip. Sour citrus aroma matches it’s tart taste with a lasting finish. A great geuze no doubt, but probably reaching a plateau of how good a geuze can even get.
