ebone1988 (1918) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle shared with koleminer20 for the Koleminer20 Turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. For the book. 2014 vintage. Aroma is dank as fuck, super fucking funky, slight tart, mineral, slight bitter, white wine. Appearance is golden amber, off white head, slightly hazy, great head retention. Taste is disappointing, slight funk, slight bitter, mostly sweet, not complex, not real dank, just terribly disappointing. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, slight funky sweet aftertaste. Overall, highly disappointing.

Bottle. BBE date May 2026; Drank Feb 2009 - Hazy orange in colour. Yeasty; funk, wood, leather. Fruity; crisp, citrus (orange and lemon), spicy. Tart and mildly sour. Dry finish. Smooth, soft and subtle; not as extreme as some gueuze. Liked this! Nice gueuze! (2009-02)

Achel (485) - Ioannina, GREECE - FEB 2, 2017
Hazy gold with lasting off white head. Some sourness on aroma, really quite drinkable, nice grapefruit touches. It’s pretty good. Excellent fruit flavours and not too acidic.

cmacklin (1171) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2017
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange-gold with plenty of floaties and a large, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces. Sour aroma of green apple, lemon, orange, wet horse blanket and oak. Sweet fruity flavour of peach, grapefruit, orange, lemon, green apple, white wine, brett, dust and oak with a dry, sour, acidic finish. Light to medium body with a watery texture and lively carbonation. Has some complexity, very nice.

Listigovers (1171) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017
Clear dark gold pour, thin head. Smells like wet grass and funky earthy fungus. Taste is suitably sour, lots of funk and aged woody character,. Delicate and delicious, creamy palate, dry, aged hops, very nice.

Zlotta (3277) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2017
0.375 l bottle from ’Bierwinkel Hop’, bottled in November 2013. Clear, golden amber with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, white head. Sourish, quite funky ,moderately fruity and a bit dusty aroma of lots of lemon, rhubarb, barnyard, oak and some sweat. Over medium sour, rather funky and also quite fruity taste of lots of lemon, gooseberry, rhubarb, massive oak, barnyard and some dust, followed by a medium long, rather tart, very woody-dry finish. Thin to medium body, astringent, fizzy and very effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. I wouldn’t call it mellow, but it’s not aggressively sour either. Quite well-balanced with nice fruity and funky flavours and a champagne-like mouthfeel. Good Geuze!
