FinnIckler (390) - GERMANY - APR 25, 2017
Bottle from Delhaize in Brussels. Pours hazy yellow. Nose is apple, white wine, honey, woody, ginger. Heavily carbonated (same as the kriek). Palate is apple, woody, some oaky bitterness. Very Good, but too much carbonation. Need to drink a vintage!

ANZUShophunter (408) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2017
From bottle in Belgian ale glass. First time Ive tried this style. Pours orangish yellow with frothy head and fruity & earthy nose. Forward tartness and lemon sourness but a bit more complex than a standard sour. It grew on me.

Grumpelmies (290) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. The first Geuze I ever had. Pale golden with a small head. Aroma of dry fruits, reminds me of a really good german cider and a really good french white wine. Fruity, dry and very strong carbonation. Delicious. For special occasions.

Lisowczyk (77) - POLAND - MAR 23, 2017
Bardzo mocno wysycone. W smaku i zapachu dominuje przyjemna derka. Słodowość ma w sobie sporo słodyczy, ale całość oczywiście kwaśna. Zaskakuje spora jak na styl goryczka z ziołowymi nutami chmielu, ktry najwidoczniej nie był odpowiednio utleniony.

Bottle share at the brewery. Pours hazy pale gold with a lasting white head. Aroma of sour fruit, wood, leather, and straw. Light sweetness, medium sour. Light body, average carbonation. Finish is crisp, dry and sour.

MrHangover (4410) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle, thnx to Jimmy. Pours a clear golden straw yellow beer with a quickly disappearing off white head on top. Aroma has lots of barnyard funk, oak and horse blanket, typical gueuze aroma. Flavor is stringent and very tart, oaky and very dry. Quite high in carbonation, long in a stringent tarty aftertaste. Nice one.
