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.

Wonderful Aroma coming off the top. Let the beer do its thing and then shortly after poured into a snifter. Tart cherries, barnyard, hay, and spicy yeast on the nose. Taste of spicy yeast and horse blanket. Nice dry finish that really leaves your palate unscathed.

Date: 4/4/14
Location: Dicicco's Harrison
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Pours with a very fluffy white head that stays and stays with an 1/8th inch top. Orange to yellow in color with a very thick haze.
Aromatics: The first aromas come from the wild yeasts, totally mouthwatering sour. There is must, earth, and wood all together.
Flavor: The beer moves from sour to vinegary very quickly. The finish has several flavors from leather, to earth, to oak and forest from the wood.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is very smooth with very little viscosity. The beer moves from puckering to mouthwatering to tart very smoothly.

From a bottle in a Drie Fonteinen Geuze glass at Monks Cafe, Dec. 2012 Vintage

Appearance: has vigorous carbonation but a rapidly dying head

Smell: Funk upfront with hints of apple.

Taste: refreshing sourness, more tart than the Petrus Aged Pale I just had and with a more pleasing, complex funk. less green apple than Boon Oude Geuze.

Mouthfeel: high carbonation gives the beer sufficient body

Overall: AMAZING beer. far better than Tilquin and Boon's Geuzes.
