This is one of my first Guezes and I am amazed by the balance and taste of this one.
Appearance is near perfect, a big rocky head and a lot of carbonation reaching for the surface in a very fast pace. Color is orange brown and a little murky.
Smell is mildly tart, with some lactic acid notes. There is a little basement smell in there which is somewhat fungal (is that a word?). It also reminds me of flowers like chrysanteneums.
Taste is moderate acidic with flowery notes (same as above) and a little cork-like taste. My mouth really has to get used to the dryness and sourness, it makes my saliva glands work. Slowly but surely I am getting used to it. The dry, tangy taste is lingering.
Not as acidic as I expected, and for sure a good beer, but not something I will buy frequently in the future.
