4.6/5 rDev +5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Bottle date of November 2010.
Pours surprisingly quite clear golden with a large fluffy white head. Super active carbonation. The head sticks around and leaves sticky lacing.
Smell is quite amazing. Barnyard, sour, acidic, wet grass, cheesy aged hops, oak, and quite a lot more than I could pin point. There's a hint of malt/wheat sweetness, but I can tell it's going to be a bone dry beer.
The taste begins with an acidic bite that is rounded off with a mellow woody smoothness. Grassy funk and a slight bitterness. Overripe fruit and oak.
Prickly carbonation with a dry but smooth finish. The acidity clings to the side of the mouth. The carbonation makes it surprisingly refreshing.
An excellent geuze. I would probably like it even more with age, but not even a year in the bottle, and there's tons of complexity.

The beer comes in a hazy reddish orange color with a large bubbled large white head.
The aroma immediately has this aggressive funky character of farmyard, some slight stinky sock, with lots of fruit character in dried apricot, lemon peel, white grape peel with a substantial white breadiness in there. With some salinity as well.
The flavor follows with that dried fruit apricot and peach. Tons of white wine character. A lemon tartness throughout with some funky quality of farmyard and hay. Tons of champagne like carbonation that goes throughout.
I had this blind against Tilquin and this clearly won for its zesty fruit qualities and complexity with this beer.
