Presentation: Pours with a huge cap of foam that slowly settles to puffy and substantial 1. finger head of pure white foam. Occasionally has some light brown sediment suspended in it. Nice sticky lacing. The beer itself is the color light straw and gets hazier as I get closer to the end of the bottle. Incidentally, the head retention also improves significantly as more sediment is mixed in. Not much sediment remains in the bottle; I believe it was all mixed in.
Smell: Tangy tartness with hints of lemony citrus and a slight earthy funk.
Taste: Tangy acidity upfront, followed by light and spritzy notes of lemon and orange. Slight hint of husky graininess and strawberries. Finishes with a tongue biting and long lingering carbolic acid like acidity.
Mouthfeel: Huge amount of carbonation. Body is thick,yet retains a light and bubbly feeling.
Drinkability: So begins my dedicate foray into the world of sours. My tongue feels like I just ate a bag of candy and has sever little bumps, my stomach is little upset, and yet I am please. Refreshing and interesting drink for certain. I bought two of these and the other one is disappearing into my cave for a few years.

375 ml best by 12/20/22 (bottled 12/20/12)
Hazy amber golden pour with quickly reducing bubbly white head. Pungent aroma of barnyard funk, grass and hay, sweet peach and grape, lemon peel. Aromas carry through to the taste; coats the tongue with malty sweetness and fruit flavor (peach, orange, bright lemon peel) mixed with earthy funk and lactic acidity that dries out towards the end in oaky tannins. The finish has a nice lemon peel pop I like in a Geueze but the finish is marred by some astringent bitterness like biting into a pill. I opened up a 2012/13 when it fresher and it wasn't quite ready yet; It's now coming together nicely and may benefit from a little more time. This is a great gueuze that is easier to find but not quite as good as 3F or Cantillon.
