Scopey (13736) - 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!

cmacklin (1037) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2017
750ml bottle. (2009 vintage) Pours an unclear amber-orange with lots of sediment and a large, frothy, short lived, off-white head that laces. Sour aroma of lemon, orange, apricot, brett, horse blanket and oak. Sweet fruity flavour of orange, grapefruit, lemon, apricot, leather, brett, vinegar and oak with a crisp, sour, acidic, bone dry, champagne like finish. Medium body with an oily texture and lively carbonation. Lots of complexity, an excellent gueuze. This beer aged nicely.
