0,75l bottle at home. Bottled 15.04.2020. bit of a gusher this one. amber lightly hazy color, rather big white head. smells earthy, grassy, peated, spices, sherry, wood, oak, smoky, peppery. lovely smell. full body, pearly carbonation. tastes smoked, some peat, herbal, earthy, stone fruits, underlying sweetness, peppery, spices, some horse radish. finishes lightly dry and lightly sour with notes of peppery, peat and stone fruit notes. hmm, pretty good one. peat is pretty noticeable, and for me doesnt work so well with the beer. Possibly this just needs more time, also rather heavy for a geuze. Peat gets more noticeable when warmer, also on the smell, which I loved at first. Overall good, possibly could like this more with some age on it.

Small white head, disappearing over hazy orange beer. Typical gueuze-farmyard odour, chalk, sherry, faint lemon. Lemon, sherry, and then, retronasal, indeed tarr, phenol - blended in and not overwhelming. Light acidthinning but no or very little acidburn; lipsmacking acidity, good carbonation. Peat is just that little bit over to be truly refreshing, but it doesn't harm at all. No smoked malt - and yet this flavour, blending in perfectly. This is... outstanding in the litteral sense of the word. And great.
Pours unclear blonde, small white head. Scent is full, tad fruity, somehow. Mild on the funk and oak. Taste is full, mild smoke, medium sour. Low on the funk, more on the peaty side than B62.
11 September 2021. At Summer Belgian Beer Geek Gathering. Many thanks, Klaas & Liesbeth, cheers to the whole crew!
Season 19/20, No° 62. Hazy orange, thin, off-white head. Aroma of hay, horseblanket, leather, plum, green apple, oak. Taste has very sour plum, peach & gooseberry, funky hay, vinegar & lemon acid. Old grassy hops in the tart finish along wood, funky fruit & leather. Medium body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Missed out on a the peat somewhat, apart from a more leathery aspect. Mainly a sharp Geuze.
Thnx to 77ships ! Pours unclear blonde, small white head. Scent is full, mildly oxidative. Don't get the peat (which is a good thing! ) . Taste is full, midlly peated, sharp tartness. Dry, mildly oxidative. Very enjoyable !
11/IX/21 - 75cl bottle @ BBGG Summer Edition (Klaas & Liesbeth's place), BB: 26/X/40, bottled: 15/IV/20 (2021-1043) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!
Little cloudy orange beer, practically no head. Aroma: fruity, lots of brett, very funky, dry, bit fruity, apricots and peaches. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: nice acidity, juicy, fruity, lots of citrus notes, bit spicy. Aftertaste: more spicy, fruity, lemony, more citrus notes, bit acidic. Not getting that peat though?
Small taste. Very nice combination of flavours going on here, firstly of course the regular OG, nice and funky, some acidity, minerals and stuff. Then sweet sherry, adding lots of flavours. Peat is very subtle. Fun.
