look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Cloudy bright yellow, well carbonated, one finger head.

S- Funk, horse blanket, oak, grass and yeast.

T-Semi-funky, not as sour as I was hoping, slight oak, green apples. As it warms it gets funkier.

M-Medium bodied, lightly carbonated.

O-Definitely need to let this beer warm up to room temperature. Maybe age will move more of the funk from the nose to the taste.

375ML Cage/Cork Bottle, Dated Nov 3, 2011
When I un-twisted the cage, the cork slid and shot out on its own, hitting the ceiling. Luckily no liquid was lost, but one can assume this beer is quite carbonated.

- Pours hazy golden wheat with several inches of foam.
- Smells of barnyard funk and lactic sour mixed with sweet malt and tart fruit (grapes, lemons).
- Taste is true to nose with a mouthful of lactic sour funk. Despite being quite full flavored up front, the funkiness is actually quite sublime, fading quickly. I felt like the sourness was going to be more puckering and pungent, but this beer is just too well balanced and restrained to allow that.
- The Finish is clean and dry on the palate. Combined with the high carbonation level, it's reminiscent of a quality champagne.
- Overall this beer is top notch. Lactic sour funk that is well balanced and leaves you wanting more, my glass was empty in no time.

375 ml Bottle from Tipples. Pours a light orange yellow, slightly hazy, with a big fluffy bubbly white head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom like champagne. Aroma is a very dry sour, green apple, vinegar, oak, earthy grass. Big sour up front with lots of dry oak and champagne like flavor, some green apple, lemon, maybe even a hint of super tart cherry. Then a second wave of pucker. Definite dry lingering must on the back end. Light and bubbly dancing in your mouth.

Poured from 375mL bottle into a wine glass. Stamped 5 MRT 2012.

A: Pale clear yellow with light head that produces incredibly fine bubbles. Under tight carbonation; the cork postively erupts. Heavy lacing.

S: Light, tart, and funky. Very pleasantly fruity. Lemon zest, apples, and grape. Sharp, complex, and engaging.

T: Very, very good. Fruity-funky-tart. Intense. Lightly spicy on the endtaste. Lemon peel. Black pepper. Distant sugar. Berries? Aftertaste is barnyard-y and lingering.

M: Sharp, tart. Mineral-clean.

O: It lives up to the hype. Great geuze. Recommended!
