Grumbo (3756) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2017
Bottle shared at OltremaltO, Ancona. Pours hazy golden orange with a small lasting white head. Aroma of sour apples, citrus and straw. Light sweetness, towards heavy sourness. Light to medium body, slight oily texture, average carbonation. Very good.

BrewGuide32 (149) - Szczecin, POLAND - OCT 14, 2017
Oude Geuze ma barwę przygaszonej pomarańczy, jest równomiernie i mocno opalizujące. Piana z początku buduje się dość obfita, aby sycząco zredukować się do pierścienia na powierzchni piwa. Próbuje pozostawiać po sobie delikatny lacing. W aromacie na pierwszy plan wybija się mieszanka kwaśnych, niedojrzałych owców takich jak jabłko, winogron, agrest, dalej wyczuwalny charakter funk, czyli świeża, zmoczona skóra, mokre siano, trochę stajni i konia. Pachnie bardzo klasycznie, ale mógłbym wwąchiwać się w ten zapach godzinami. W smaku od razu rzuca się dość umiarkowana kwaśność, której towarzyszą skojarzenia z niedojrzałymi, własnie kwaśnymi owocami takim jak w aromacie, czyli jabłka, winogron, agrest, beczki po czerwonym winie za bardzo nie czuję, ale ta zapewne dlatego, że była już mocno zużyta. Dalej dochodzą posmaki mokrej skóry, siana, czystej stajni, subtelnie zaznacza się na końcu leciutka cytrynka. Przy każdym łyku przyjemnie musuje w ustach, pozostawia delikatne uczucie ściągania na języku, co tylko potęguję i tak wysoką pijalność. Podsumowując mamy do czynienia z klasycznym oude geuze, choć zaliczającym się do nieco bardziej kwaśnych, ale to w zupełności tutaj nie przeszkadza i w sumie pozostaje bardzo dobrym przedstawicielem stylu.

axl (1030) - Lund, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2017
375ml bottle. Semi-hazy dark golden to brown with one finger white head. Aroma is green apple skins, funk, citrus, hay and barnyard. Taste is tart with an enjoyable acidity, green apple skins, citrus, some fresh floral notes, gentle funk, hay and dry barnyard notes almost dragging towards burnt rubber in the finish, though not in a bad way. Medium mouthfeel, high carbonation with plenty of light bubbles and dry, slightly acidic aftertaste.

4.2
ArtificialCyst (1301) - Szczecin, POLAND - OCT 11, 2017
Bottle from Elysium. Pours golden with low head. Very fruity with apples and grapes, leather, funk. Quite sour, very tart, tannic, really nice.

4.1
Boutip (6483) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2017
Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow color lambic with a nice foamy head with good retention with some lacing. Aroma of funky ester notes with some light rat notes with some oak notes also discernible. Taste is a nice mix of tart notes with limited acidity and some funky notes and light vinous oak notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Well balanced gueuze with some vinous notes but not as much as I had expected.

jinroh (2125) - ESTONIA - OCT 8, 2017
Pours nice clear golden, just a bit of foam there, not much of it. Nose is fruity-acidic, not at a disturbing level. Tastes dry and full of tannines. Wine-like lambic, nice fruit seed feel within general overall acidity. Cuts through sweetness of the dessert, excellent.

3.2
GuideDogSaint (1718) - Xiamen, CHINA - OCT 8, 2017
Taste from a 375ml bottle courtesy of David at Fat Fat Beer Horse, Xiamen. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of cider and vinegar. Sour taste and finish. Had this straight after 3 Fontainen Oude Geuze and wasn't impressed.

4.1
coil (124) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2017
375ml corked bottle from The Grumpy Goat, Reading. Hazy amber colour with tiny white head. Big barnyard funk, big funky tart citrus, Brett, funky cinnamon toast, tart lemon juice, grapefruit peel, musty cellar, tart green apple peel, sour red grapes, damp grains, earthy notes, kimchi, light vinegar. Super complex and delicious gueuze.
