Huge thanks to Jerz for hosting an awesome tasting, and for so many generous beer connoisseurs who made the event possible.
Pours ... not red or pink! But, rather an orange gold. Half an inch to an inch of white crust with bubbling.
Smells like spiced pepper zest with unripe apples and lemons. Raw bracing lemons. This is a great funky, unripe fruit, cheesy/moldy/barnyard-y/musty and not overly spiced aroma. Really superb.
Taste is brings with it some wood notes, along with peppery yeast, spicey crazy piercing funk that shoots to the brain (whoa, a moldy haystack just lanced my frontal lobe), and some melding unripe fruite notes that unfortunately aren't quite as strong in the flavor as they were in the nose. The flavor might have gone a little to spiced funk for me, but still excellent. Maybe even a bit of a random old cognac/old port/old dark wine barrel aftertaste.
Very nicely carbonated.

Bottle poured into a 3F stem. Enjoyed 12/7/2013. Thanks rfraga7!
Pour is a deep orange, with two fingers of off white, frothy head. Head retains for a while, and leaves some nice lacing. Smell is incredible, and easily the highlight of this beer - bright, juicy tropical fruits (mango, papaya), some lemony bite, and wrapped up in a clean, musty funk (cobwebs, basement, some hay). Taste is impressive, but not as much so as the nose. More tropical fruits that are slightly subdued. A nice lemony bite, and a delicious mineral funk. Finish develops this floral, grassy, perfume aspect that is enjoyable, but mildly offputting. Quite drinkable, with a medium level of sourness. Finish is dry. A top notch geuze that was a pleasure to have, but falls short of Blauw but quite a bit.
