Thanks to Kevin for sharing the 750ml. Best by date is 2-2-2031.

Into a wine glass, classy. Pours a cloudy pale orange, a thick white head settles to about a finger in size. Not a lot of lace, but otherwise excellent appearance.

Nice, if not super potent, scent. Good amount of tart lemony notes, some light farm and funk.

Taste is an improvement, very solid. Notes of lemon and grapefruit with a good amount of tartness. Yeast, slight funky farm and earthiness.

Great mouthfeel that's slightly on the foamy side, perfect carbonation. Very drinkable.

Quite a great beer and underrated I think. Good balance. Not groundbreaking, but definitely one of the best bargain gueuzes out there, usually easy to find as well.

[Suggested Glassware: Flute]

The pour was a sparkling clear pale yellow with a huge (3-4 finger) white pillowy head, that receded slowly and lasted throughout with excellent sticky foamy lacing.

The aroma was of light grain and straw malts and a funky Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), a dusty wood odor, white grapes, apple, apricot and a slight tartness.

The taste was a tad sweet with a good strong grainy yeast presence and a touch of apricot and apple throughout, finishing boldly sour with a hint of white grapes and a light wine presence right at the end. The flavor was short in duration, with the tart fruity taste fading away off the taste buds almost immediately after the swallow.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a thin dry texture and a very lively carbonation.

Overall I perceived this to be a very good tasting Geuze, with a strong fruity presence which only accented the moderate winey sourness, giving this brew a very enjoyable and easy drinkability...

This is one of those beers that I'm really glad I've had, but probably won't drink again. I love the sour beers, and I love some funky barnyard notes. But, I also need that balanced with a little bit of fruit. This beer is as barnyard as I've ever tasted, without any fruit or floral notes. Exceptional in what it is, but not for me.

A - poured nice cloudy golden color with one finger white head, immediate lacing as it reduced, creamy but with some big bubbles.

S - fruit, brett, sour, funky. from my small experience with sours, smells on par. certainly enticing.

T - I smelled brett it in the nose, but it is in the background... where it needs to be. Up front is a musty, soapy, very light sour tasting cereal malt, finish is nice and clean sour. Funky throughout, barnyard, wet, a little dirty. Lingering taste of citrus fruit, is very refreshing.

M - medium body, lots of carbonation, finishes very dry. The taste slows this brew down more than the mouthfeel, real sipper.

O - Very good. I'm a sour Noob, but I love this stuff. Very slow sipping beer to enjoy and contemplate. Great accompaniment to reading or intellectual conversation.
