375ml into a Cantillon tulip. 2009 bottle. The cork shot out of the neck when I loosened the cage a bit, so be careful.
A: Pours a glowing orange with large, spongy white head.
S: Lactic acidity along with a hint of acetic vinegar character, mineral notes, floral, a bit of sweet unmalted wheat, slight oak. Soft and balanced nose.
T: Opens on the palate with a very dry, moderately sour wave of earthy acidity. Smooths out with lactic notes, light mineral character, relatively strong pale malt sweetness, leafy, a bit of tannic vanilla.
M: Light-bodied and frothy with very high carbonation.
O: The mineral character and and the presence of some pleasant malt sweetness make this geuze unique, and it's eminently drinkable. I would have liked a bit more funk but besides that this is a delicious geuze. I wish we had better access to this in the US.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled January 2009.
Appearance - The cage came off without event, but the slightest pressure on the cork causes it to fly off and the beer begins to gush. Fills the glass with white foam. It settles quickly and leaves very little on the surface. The body is clear deep golden.
Smell - Lots of white pepper. Bright orange citrus. Hefty oak. A little bit of pale malt. Light acidity.
Taste - Sour up front, but drops off quickly. Drops off to oak and pepper. The malt lends a hint of sweetness and then becomes orangey. Strong oak lingers in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Very dry. The body drops off quickly. High carbonation.
Overall - Excellent without being all that dynamic. Missing some of the sour and malt characteristics that would allow this to transcend other gueuzes.
