750 ml poured into a SN tulip
A: Holy crap, the cork SHOT out as soon as I loosened the cage and both flew way the hell away. Obviously highly carbonated and determined to get drank. Pours a light golden color and very clear with a thin film and lingering thin rim of bubbles.
S: Not very characterful in the aroma department. Some nice earthy toasty notes, very tipical geuze aroma without that funk that makes a lambic interesting in my opinion. Still a nice smelling beer.
T: Very refreshing and almost lite considering its high carbonation. Nice yeast fruitiness and lightly tart. Not very sour but enough to be refreshing and satisfying. Also has a nice finishing bitterness with a subtle Brett character that lingers with tropical yeast fruitiness.
M: Almost thin and lite but yet highly carbonated and finishes slightly dry and nicely bitter.
O: A nice lambic for the price but strangely haven't seen this around as much as other more sought after geuzes. I guess that kinda makes sense but a little variety never hurts for perspective. A nice beer that is worth trying and seeking.

Bottle poured into my Duvel tulip. Poured brilliant dandelion yellow with a slight tangerine hue. Frothy white head that left several patches of lacing. Wonderful aromas of citrus tartness, touch of leather, big earthy tones. Like walking through a deciduous forest after a fresh spring rain and you come upon a rotting log with mushrooms growing on it. Very delicate, yet powerful flavors. Very smooth carbonation giving a lively feel to the light body. Delicious.
