4.15/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

375ml bottle poured into a geuze glass.

A: Tawny in color though it shifts more to the golden side of things. Hazy, though some yeast may have accidentally been poured. No head at all and no lacing.

S: Tart lemon, sour green apple and green apple skin, lemongrass. Lightly funky and rustic with the traditional horse blanket smell. Undertones of caramel and dark honey. Mild dusty oak scent.

T: Cider vinegar. Puckering lemony acidity, tannic, green apple skin. Whispers of oak. Barnyard and horse blanket are more apparent than they were on the nose. Caramel and walnuts, dark honey. Well balanced. Sour finish of lemon juice, apple skin, and funk.

M: Medium to medium-light body. Full in the mouth and slick. Puckering, acidic, and tannic. Curiously flat though.

O: For whatever reason, this bottle was flat. I've had this beer many times and never found it to be like this. My score reflects the undesirable quality in this sample, but I'll say that this is easily one of my favorite sours under normal circumstances. Some of the other more highly rated geuzes out there are far more sharp and sour. This one showcases a perfect balance between funk, sour, and malt sweetness, with a touch of oak thrown in for good measure. Tannins are there, but play more softly on the palate than most do. A must-try beer.
