BelgBeerGeek (1307) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2010 head: white , 1/2 inch
colour: clear dark amber
smell: sour, yeast, sugar, wheats
taste: starts sweet but blends over quickly into a stingy sour geuze flavour malt comes in afterwards and end is a bit grainy texture is oily end is a tiny bit dry, body is thin but is good for this beer as it is in my eyes a great refreshing beer at hot summer days

Tonkun (1306) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle. Copper pour with nice medium head that turns quickly into some lacing around the edge. Sour candy, apple, brown sugar. Pretty nice balance of sweetness, bubbles and body but slightly watery finish.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2013
Deep amber color with a medium white head that quickly dissipates. Nice aroma of aged yeast, some mustiness. Taste is sweet, much like a southern sweet tea it is too sweet and covers up any other flavors in the beer. Not one of my favorites.

ciaranc (1306) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 1, 2013
25cl bottle. Rose pink coloured, thin white head disappears completely quickly. Sour, earthy, yeasty nose, some sugary summer fruit notes too. Nose drifts between attractive and offensive. Flavour is sweet up front - really sweet. Strawberry notes, some cherry too. There’s some sourness to follow, sour apple notes here. Light and very fizzy. Finish is yeasty, estery, sweet and sour. Areal roller coaster this and a great example of an out there beer.

cmacklin (1306) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with a large, long lasting, off-white head that laces nicely. Aroma is sweet and sour with some yeast and malt notes. Very sweet flavour with a sour, yeasty finish. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Bottle from the bier palace in Belgium. Clear, reddish color with mall white head. Aroma is super sweet candy with a mild tartness. Sweet cherry and red apple come out in the flavor with a tad bit dirtiness, soft tang as well. Watery with slight acidity and light carb. Drinkable but undesirable at the same time, way too sweet for my palate.

TrefwoordPunk (1302) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours light purple with a white head and a rich fruity smell. Flavor is sweet, a bit too sweet but the finish makes up for it. The finish is rich, with sweet, sour and spicey notes. Very good.

Thanks AgentSteve. Poured clear golden amber, smooth, sweet berries, candied sugars, little yeasty, dry finish.

IslandHaole (1299) - Misawa, JAPAN - NOV 27, 2015
Clear copper colored beer with a cream colored head. Sweet & tart, like cherries with a dank, basement funky sourness. Very sweet up front but has that lovely sourness only found by spontaneous fermentation. Overall, quite tasty but just over the top with the sugary sweetness. Still, I do like this one, my 74th style rated!

dwaggs2 (1298) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Bottle. Poured a darker amber color with a small head that went quick. Aroma was fruits, acidic, and vinegar. Flavor was very sweet, apples, sugar, candies, and acid. Tart, metallic aftertaste. Not my favorite out there, but drinkable
