375 ml bottle bottled on 9 march 2011. Pours a slightly hazy light amber with a small white head that has good retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is really funky with lots of brett, some horseradish, a light sulfur note, and some earthiness. The taste has a big lactic tartness with lemon, slight horseradish, and lots of funky brett. The finish is tart with earthy brett. Medium body. Low carbonation. Dry throughout. This was drank side by side with a 3F Oude Geuze. I slightly preferred the 3F, but this was still great. I suspect that the slight sulfur note will go away with some age and this beer will get even better.

375mL courtesy of PDX chasing. Consumed 6-8, reviewed from notes.

A: Orangish-yellow with a receding head. Glides off the glass.

N: Balanced sourness. Orange, lemon, oak. Some subtleties of the yeast funk, but they're fringe elements.

T: Incredibly well balanced, and very oak forward. Lemon, pepper, and earth. Salty, in a way. Slight candy sweetness to back up the rest of the flavors.

M: Prickly and perfect. Not nearly as drying as its American counterpart.

O: Tried two days after having Beatification, and the two are comparable in quality. I prefer this one, both because it's a classic and because it's more rounded where the Beatification is sharp.

A: Pours a clear apple juice golden color with a thin white head. Tons of carbonation visible in the body. Looks pretty amazing.

S: Definitely a good amount of cheesy, barnyard funk right away. Lots of lemon and wood along with some faint pear and green apple notes. The wood comes out a bit more as it warms.

T: Hits with a bit punch of sourness with an edge of funk to it. Lemon, a touch of faint spice, sour plum, and some green apple as well. Some hints of wood and earth on the finish. The taste isn't as in your face as some of the other geuzes I've had, but I think I actually like that better. This is really, really good.

Bottle poured into a flute

Thanks to Keanlacrosse for sharing

Pours a golden color with an orange core and a tight white cap. Good retention with some light sip marks.

The nose is surprisingly tame and extremely well balanced. Lemon tartness is dominant with some peaches and apricots poking through. Dry oak with a barnyard funk. Mainly wet hay and must.

The fruit flavors leap to the front with lemon leading the charge. Wet hay, must and dry oak through the middle. This is amazingly well balanced. I was expecting something a little more bold, but this is welcome too.

Light bodied with minimal carbonation. Clean all the way through with a dry, fruity finish.

This beer is delicious. Meticulously crafted and blended. Everything playing well together. This is welcome in my fridge any time.
