Scopey (13010) - 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!

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. 2009 - 4,4/5; 2011 - 4,3/5; 2013 - 4,1/5; 2015 - 3,9/5. Szkoda, że ratebeer nie traktuje kolejnych rocznikw jako oddzielnych piw, bo każde zupełnie inne.

mgajdaczewa (1789) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 21, 2016
W aromacie najbardziej brettowe, dominuje siano i nutki zielone, brakuje nut słodszych. W smaky tez najwyższa kwaśność, odczucie siana i stosunkowo wysoka pestkowa goryczka. Piwo charakterne, ale na pewno nie tak szlachetne jak poprzednicy.

heman (736) - Tychy, POLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Aromat jest zdziczały i skisły. W zapachu mamy dużo konia, siana spod konia i spoconego zadu konia. Jest "końsko i zagrodowo", a przy tym przyjemnie. W smaku piwo jest wyraźnie kwaśne, po raz pierwszy tego wieczoru wystąpiło u mnie charakterystyczne "ściąganie" ślinianek. Ponownie kompozycję smakową budują nuty dzikie i cytrusy, tutaj o nieco mineralnym charakterze. Finisz wytrawny, cierpki.

Une magnifique gueuze tout en tension la robe ambre et au nez typ, mais surtout la bouche la fois tendue et ample, dune longueur impressionnante. Un rgal absolu

Bottle, 2013 version (shared by harri, thanks!). Pours golden. Aroma is sour, very funky, fruity, apricots. Flavor is sour and somewhat bitter, funky, fruity, citrus, apricots, and wood. Finish has some bitterness. Excellent balance. Overall: great brew, a lot better than I expected.

jbruner (4213) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2016
2015 version. Pours a hazy golden orange from the bomber with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma of big funky notes over a hint of acidity and sweet fruitiness. Taste is even more of the funk, horsey like crazy, then falls to notes of lemon and tart acidity. Bubbly effervescence, soft and easy, really nice.
