jbeatty (1257) - New York, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle, 2009 vintage, 11/19/2012. Pours light caramel chestnut, foamy rocky head, fades eventually leaving sudsy lacing, champagne bubbles around side of glass. Aroma of grapefruit pulp with citrus, tart green apples and pear, leathery barnyard funk to balance with musty oak character. Taste is bright, tart green apple and white grape, vinous, with nice acidity, moderate funk, vanilla, with sour fruity finish. Light, lively, refreshing body, champagne-like carbonation. Nice, fruity geuze but still balanced.

OminouSC2 (898) - Mora, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2017
Sample from bottle at The Local Pub, Athens. (A group of people had a private tasting with beers they had brought themselves. The bartender made it known to the group that I was interested in beer and they gave me a sample. So a big thanks to MikeBibere, AntonFred(?) and all the others! Cheers!) Orange color, small white head. Slight tart aromas of gooseberries, cherries, dough and slight citrus. Slight tart taste with citrus, earth and gooseberries. I like it, and I usually don't enjoy Gueuze all that much.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2017 Bottle at Koelschip Yard. The movement through sweet, sour, fruit, tart is really impressive. Lovely texture on the palate too.

Pours creamy orange, some white foam on top. Nice autumny nose, lightly acidic, fruity, hinting a perfectly balanced tart lambic. Nice fruity flavour, perfect balance of tartness, light and drinks well. Shrimp cocktail is actually a good pairing, cuts through mayonnaise and blends well with salad.

Rami Rami is drinking a HORAL's Oude Geuze Mega Blend 2017 by Brouwerij Boon at Kasprzaka Bardzo owocowe, ciut kiszone, zaskakujaco pelne, wcale nie bardzo wytrawne, jest ciut slodyczy... ryli fajne piwko, zwlaszcza fajnie z serem

Bottle at home. Two year old bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber colour with a small off-white. Aroma of rowan berries, oak, apple cider vinegar, forest floor, minerals, apricot, barn yard and heather. Fruity flavour with apricot, barn yard, apple cider vinegar, wet hay, lemon juice and oak. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. Very balanced and with a nice fruitiness.
