Pour out of 750 mL bottle, big thanks to Aaron for the pour! 2009 bottle, hazy golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of lemon peel, oak, nice stone fruit, slight vanilla, hints of oak, slight earthy notes with a touch of acetic. Taste was a mix of stone fruit, candied apricot, tart lemon, oak, funk into a bit of earth, slight vanilla, hints of slight yeast, finishing with a slight acetic burn, tart.

Expected more. The apple cider vinegar kept this from an otherwise fantastic brew. Nice tartness some sour light fruits was good side. May be old bottle but it should have aged if that is case. bursprak (3205) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 28, 2015

Bottle @Dangerous Bottleshares 10th Anniversary, thanks to Baron! Vintage 2012, 75cl. Pours a nice, orangy amber with a tiny, short lasting white head. Aroma is very oaky with leather, dust, sour, unripe pear, gooseberries, slight hard cheese or parmesan. Taste is very dry, sour, citric, vinegar, green apples, leather, vanilla, again slight cheese, leather gets almost smoky. Grape fruit peel. Average carbonation and a light, crisp body. Really good! I get the hype on this one! RasmusOtt (2767) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 20, 2015
Bottle shared @ dangerous bottleshares 10’th anniversary. 2012 vintage! Pours hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma has lots and lots of a deep and complex oak character which is slight musty. Also some vanilla, sweet citrus, goose berries, weak grape skin, hard crystalized cheese, fresh leather and some green tart apples. That is a complex aroma right there. The taste follows the aroma and has a big and oaky quality to it. The must and hard cheese is present along those lines as well. Also some vanilla, goose berries, vinegar, sour green grapes, tart green apples, sweet citrus and some fresh leather leading to a rather dry and sour finish. Funk and oak is on point! Smooth but yet lively mouthfeel. This aged so well and I’m so glad to have tried it. To be honest I didn’t expect it to be this good but man! This has a lot of gueuze qualities but also draws on some typical american sour ale characteristics. One of the best sour ales I’ve had so far and definitely the best non-fruited.

THANKS! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ the “pre-Club 54 tasting”. 2012 Vintage. Supposedly this is the finest vintage. Hazy orange, little white bubbles. Amazing nose, huge musty cellar, in an almost lambiek-funk type of way, thick oak, musty, light cardboard, very light malt base. Taste is slightly sweet malty musty oak, funk, floral, wood, vinegar, delicate funk, citrus, light green apple, rather funky, delicate in its approach & qualities. Fittingly lively carbonation, drinks crazily easily. Very impressive beer. Absolutely amazing. Going back by memory, I do feel that I noticeably preferred this one to the Duck Duck Gooze. Just awesome really. DSG (14838) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 15, 2015
[2/11/15] Bottle sample from some guy at Toronado in San Francisco. 2014 bottle. Hazy yellow. Lovely funky and fruity aroma with a nice manure note. Sourish funky and fruity flavor with some cobwebs and oak. Quite rounded mouthfeel. Great and refreshing but possibly a bit over-hyped – not as complex as some Belgian Lambics.

2014 bottle at T. Hazy gold. Aroma gives peach, apricot, good funk, lemon rind, some light hibiscus. Taste is fabulously balanced - light peachy notes, tarter citrus, wood, light herby spruce, some funk, light orange. Lingering lemon zest, wood and peach. Great.

2008 bottle, Toronado, SF. Pours orange amber with an off-white head. Nose is grape skin, sour apple, gooseberry, and caramel. Flavour is sour mash, green apple, Brett yeast, barnyard, grass, lemon zest, apricot, and notes of caramel. OMG Incredible.
