look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottled October 2013

Appearance: It has a beautiful hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves light lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of green apples, tart citrus/lemon, barnyard funk and some oak.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has sour green apples, tart lemon, some citrus notes, nice barnyard funk and some woody oak.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. This is one of my favorites in the Geuze style. Not overly tart, flavorful and well balanced. A must try for anyone who loves Sours.

A: 4.5 Opened carefully without much drama. Pours reddish-gold and slightly hazy with a large white head.

S: 4.5 Lots of pepper on the nose. Wheat, funk, lemon, and oak come through next. The lemon and peppery aromas go really well together; their brightness is also balanced out by some mineral characteristics and richness from the oak.

T: 4.5 Like the nose, there is a lot of lemon, but orange and even some grapefruit flavors come through on the palate. The pepper is a bit more subdued while adding a different kind of brightness to this already bright (i.e., sour) beer. A touch of sweetness and oak sneak in under the sour flavors.

M: 4.25 Carbonation is great and the dry finish is also excellent. There’s a bit of a watery characteristic to this beer; a slightly more substantial feel would help in this regard.

O: 4.5 This is such a bright, flavorful beer with a lot going on. It’s actually quite exciting drinking this as it seems like each sip brings a new flavor. The age from the older beer in the blend also really comes through, tasting old and funky in the best possible way.
