Appearance - Poured into a snifter, the beer was a beautiful golden color. I high intensity level of carbonation was present. The way the cork popped, I was glad I was not under a light fixture.
Smell - The aroma was most reflective of over-ripe fruit. One might also notice the level of sourness and well as an oakiness in the background.
Taste - My initial impression of the taste was the dry sour oakiness. In the midst of these elements, one might also recognize elements of lime, citrus that goes from sweet to sour in the back, and a measure of oakiness. The aftertaste is quite dry, with notes of lime sticking to the roof of the mouth with the wood lingering.
Mouthfeel - This beer is well carbonated. The sour fruits stick to the roof of the mouth. This one lingers.
Overall - I am not really a geuze kind of guy, but I can recognize a beer that is well done. This is well done.

4.24/5 rDev -3.2%

Poured into a Bruery tulip. Bottled on 12/05/2012.
A: Produces a huge rocky white head. Thin and sudsy with a pale gold body. Very thing lacing but a good thick cap of head hangs about.
S: Lots of bright citrus fruit up front, white wine and a juicy lactic tang in the middle. Toasted oak with a musty, dirty brett hanging around.
T: An acidic, citric sourness with lots of white whine tartness leading into some apple vinegar and stinky cheese. Rounded out with oak barrel and lots of old wood and musty hay. Lingering acidity with a dough maltyness.
Mf: Crisp, drying and effervescent. Great drinkability. Despite the sharp flavors you keep going back for more.
O: One of the better geuze I've had. Lots of those really bizarre funky and sour flavors that only come from a lambic. Very easy drinking and enjoyable. Worth the cost.
