375 mL green champagne bottle with cork, cage and foil presentation; bottled February 1, 2008. Brewed with 60% barley and 40% unmalted wheat. Pours a clear toasted amber hue, quite effervescent, with a huge, crackly head that nearly escapes the glass. It settles to a clingy half inch that doesn't quite grab on to the glass strongly enough to deposit any lace. Its surprisingly mild aroma contributes lemons, malt and a dash of funk. Prominent acids and esters on the palate, with a lactic acid twang, cherry, lemons, earth and an oak presence. The body is nearly full at times, with loads of carbonation, an oaky dryness and a sour finish. This one seems to focus more on the sourness than the funk, but it is well-balanced and very easy to drink.

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.
