A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden orange in color with minimal amounts of gentle visible carbonation very slowly rising from the bottom of the glass and a moderate amount of golden yellow + brassy highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy sudsy white head that reduces to a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to heavy aromas of tartness along with a light to moderate amount of funkiness as well. Hints of lemon citrus and apricot/peach underneath the stronger tartness.

T: Upfront there is a light hint of wheat malt with a moderate to strong amount of tartness. Underneath the tartness, there if a light to moderate flavor of apricot + peach + lemon/citrus. There is a light to moderate amount of funkiness and a moderate flavor of oak from the barrel aging. Overall, there is a moderate lingering tartness.

M: Slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Moderate to heavy amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: Very enjoyable because there is a moderate to significant amount of complexity to the flavor of this beer. Not so tart that it is hard to drink but certainly not a beer that you would drink real quickly, one to be savored and enjoyed. Definitely worth grabbing, not as funky as some of the others in the style but a very nice drinking beer.

Poured a wonderful cloudy golden color with a half finger of white head. It looked fantastic and very true to style. Scents of sour barnyard funk, green apple, apple cider vinegar, sour cherry, sour citrus and citrus peel and light aromas of oak and faint vanilla. A with wonderfully layered aroma with a true to style bouquet that is appealing and wild. Flavor begins delightfully sour with notes of sour, wild Brett, lemon juice, sour raspberry and sour green apple. This moves into a sour middle of sour green apple and sour barnyard funk. Finish is dry and sour with a wonderful flavor of oak, sour green apple, sour raspberry, sour Brett funk, and lemon juice. Aftertaste is sour with notes of raspberry, sour green apple and oak. A wonderful flavor profile that is dry, sour, fruity and complex. A fine geuze. Mouthfeel is light bodied with effervescent carbonation and a puckering, drying feel. A good, refreshing mouthfeel. Overall this is a fine geuze. It is sour, fruity and complex in aroma and taste and combines with a refreshing mouthfeel to make a fine geuze lambic. Quite nice and highly recommended.
