375ml bottle into a Duvel tulip... 2011-2012 batch(?)
A - nice golden color, decent amount of head retention. a little lacing. kinda hazy, but that's ok.
S - pretty much what i was looking for. beautiful tart aroma from the wild yeast. reminiscent of fresh pungent citrus rind.
T - beautiful sour flavor with just a bit of golden malt sweetness. reminds me of sanctification from russian river. faint fruity notes. very drinkable.
M - very nice astringency. pleasing foam texture.
O - really enjoyed this. highly recommend it to fans of the style. i guess i'm still sort of a beginner when it comes to geuze, but i thought this was really accessible while still being sophisticated to my palate. shared this with a friend who is newer to geuze than i am and he said that the aroma was maybe too much for him, but it tasted great.

4.18/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
A: Silky hazy golden. Poured a massive false head that dissipated quickly. Left a thin continuous ring around the glass. Highly carbonated. Excellent color and super smooth consistency, but the head was the only downside.
S: Mild funky mustiness of old library books with grape and lemon lime zest.
T: Starts off with bright sweet sour lemon lime candy. Has a light saltine malt with a tangy white pepper. Sour green grapes. Bright tart green apple. Finishes with a white vinegar.
M: Thin light and extremely crisp. Mouth puckering with a salty dehydrating finish.
O: A little over exuberant on the sourness. Lots of complexity of both bright and mellow flavors, but you really have to work to get through all that tanginess.
