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.

Bottled on 12/5/12
Consumed @ Monks Cafe

A- pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with a big foamy white head that retains nicely long after the pour, leaving some bubbles around the rim

S- nice barnyard funk with notes of wet hay, Lemon peel, basement must, toasted oak

T- sharp and tart notes of lemon peel, peach mix with a funky musty yeasty goodness, earthy tones mix with wet hay and lead to a dry puckering finish, packed with flavor

M- medium body with light carbonation lead to a big foamy mouthfeel with a dry puckering finish

O- one of the best Gueuze that I've had, it's packed with puckering flavor and keeps you wanting more

Bottling date 03 Nov 2011, opened 23 Mar 2014.

A: The cork popped off after just a couple of turns on the wire cage. The geuze pours a nice clear orange/amber color with a large white head, which dissipates to about 1/4 finger head with a little bit of lacing.

S: The second the cork came out the funk encompassed the room. Smells like a barn, rich and complex with some sourness. I'm finding it almost overwhelmingly complicated. White grapes? Leather? There are many smells going on and all intertwined. Very balanced.

T: Prickly from the carbonation. Funky with an earthy feel to it. Sour, but not vinegary with a slight puckering. Refreshing and tart like blackberries.

M: Coating and slightly thicker than I had expected. Medium

O: Very enjoyable, and lament that I only had a 375ml as there are so many layers to this brew. Very enjoyable.
