A-Really carbonated. Even after sitting for a few weeks. Light in color and slight haze

S-Sour as expected with solid funk

T-Pucker up friends, this was sour. But finished as expected with a champagne like quality

I have a couple of cases of this and look forward to trying another next year.

A-The projectile cork nearly killed my dog. A bit of a gusher. Big, yeast stained head. Modest lacing.

S-Tart, nearly vegetal aroma.Wet, soggy wood. Sour apple cider. Lemon zest. Very aromatic and intense.

T-Suck my lemons! That is sour. Subtle woodiness. Grassy, too. There is some semblance of a malt here. The tartness is bright and lingering.

M-Lively carbonation. Tartness sticks to my lips. Has some body to it.

O/D-Worth the $20 750ml. I drank this beer very young. I may need to grab another and throw her in the cellar. Just a very earthy, natural medley of flavors.

This beer style is not really my cup of tea. The beer pours a great generous head. The smell is like sour fruit. The taste is a fruit sour beer concoction that is not what I really like. The mouthfeel was awesome with this beer but the sourness kinda ruins it for me. Sorry, I am sure sour beer guys love this stuff....and they can have it. Now throw me a Pliny.

Bottom Line: Pucker up! this one is sour.

750 ml poured into a Russian River stemmed glass.

A: a nice cloudy yellow almost orange like color with a quick dissipating head made of larger bubbles from the high carbonation.

S: Light sourness but dominated by good Brett funk. A little bit of tropical fruit character, pineapple and citrus. Also a good earthy but not exactly barnyard funk, but none the less, a good earthy farm funk. As it warms I get a strange almost nutty popcorn like aroma but not buttery, hard to explain but only something you would find in Lambic. Very interesting and complex.

T: Funky tropical fruit and mild Brett. Sour but not totally mouth puckering, refreshing and crisp. Complex and drinkable bit hard to pinpoint exactly what I'm tasting.

M: Crisp from the high carbonation and dry. Funk lingers with the light tropical fruit.

O: Refreshing, sour and honestly a good example, if not one of the top Geuzes readily available in my area. Will buy again an recommend to any one who is curious.
