I am rather new to this style, but I loved this beer. It poured a bright, bubbly, clear light golden with a smallish pure white head. It looked very much light a good champagne with less carbonation.
The aroma is one of sourness that I really enjoy. The sourness, however, is balanced by a slightly sweet malty undertone. There is also a hint of the yeast in the smell.
I've read some places that geuze is not sour, but it tastes sour to me, and I love that sourness in many foods and drinks. There are hints of many other flavors underlying the sour, including some citrus hints. The mouthfeel is exceptionally clean with no bitterness at all. The carbonation cleanses the palate, and the residual sweetness refreshes.
People have told me there is much better geuze out there so the search continues.
