Big and Belgian, that's how I like them. Not in a gay way. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Just sayin'. It pours cloudy gold with a soapy white head that shows no sign of letting up before I'm ready to go further. It smells of oranges, peppermint, hay, and a barn. A particular one, not just any one. But I will keep the location secret. Just to be that way. The taste is sour cherries, grass, and a nice bready finish. This is a phenomenally balanced flavor. Not too sour, not too sweet, not too dry. It is the goldilocks of geuze. If they start putting that on the label, I get credit. The mouthfeel is soft, slightly tingly, and light. Overall, I really feel this is a fantastic beer. It may be the best I've had. Nice, nice job.

one of the better traditional Belgian examples of the style I think, and one of the primary reasons for that is its balance. not just a lactic acidity sour bomb, this has a ton of flavor and nuance to go with the sour. the malt also seems to be a bit darker than others, less yellow more amber, which gives some meat to it. alcohol is also a bit higher than others, an indication of its dryness and "doneness" in the yeast sense. hazy with fish food flakes of brick red yeast floating around and finally settling under an airy white head. the nose smells as woody as it does sour, very mature, with plenty of funky yeast weirdness in addition to the lacto of the lambic. the blend is nice too, a proper mix of old and young with just enough sourness to fit the style but not so much that I don't want to drink my whole bottle. I love the fuller body and all the carbonation. a lot of these come across still, this appears to be bottle conditioned which gives it a lot of life. less traditional to some, but I really do prefer it personally. oak and dusty malt meet where the sourness really kicks in, and it warms up well, driving the sourness up a bit more. on par with any of the blended lambics from Belgium I think, and the price point is awesome.

Pours from the bottle with a cloudy golden yellow-orange color and is topped by a massive, pillowy eggshell-white head. The aroma is a lively combination of apple cider, vinegar, and damp earth. The flavor is likewise acidic yet earthy, with components of tart white grape juice, sour green apples, and a light woodiness. The lively, sharp, fine carbonation accents the acidicy, and yet this beer is surprisingly palate-coating. Overall, this beer reminds me more of a tart white wine, but in a most intriguing way.
