750ml caged & corked dated 18/2/05. Pours a clear, effervescent amber with a very thick, rocky head that undulates and heaves like I'm writting a letter to an entirely different kind of web site. The smell is musty, sour, sharp and sweet. Yes, all of those. Medicinal esters add their note as well. The taste is dry and crisp, then decidedly sour. Very delicate and champagne-like up front with a sour lambic wallop that hits you hard. The mouthfeel is really light and airy, but surprisingly substantial. Does not come off as watery at all, which is remarkable given its light body and crisp, bubbly texture. The drinkability is very good, although the sour finish will put some off. Of course, it will probably put off those who wouldn't be interested in a geuze to begin with and that's not me so I'm not worried.
