First Gueuze or lambic style beer.
A-Poured a cloudy golden yellow with 3 finger head the recedes and leaves a nice 1/2 finger cap.
S-Sour green apples and slight yeast funk.
T-An odd funk that is a bit unfamiliar, but not unwelcome. After the the tartness takes center stage and holds on longer after the beer is down. Tart green apples, sour lemon rind and green grapes. Very faint malt presence with no discernible hop flavor.
M-Light body, high carbonation. Dry Finish.
O-This is an interesting beer that seems to be a cross between a light ale and champagne. A style that I would like to explore a little bit more.

First had one of these in Brussells a while back, but can't remember much about it. Somehow ended up with a branded glass brought back. I've had one other geuze since then and haven't been sure this is something I like or not.
However, having spotted a bottle of Boon at the local market this weekend, I decided for one more go at it. This one says 2011, for what that's worth.
I was very impressed in particular with the smell of this beer. One of the nicest smmelling beers I have had. It bubbles like a champagne but still distinctly looks like a beer. A lot of care has gone into the making of this.
Unfortunately the taste does let it down slightly initially. It just doesn't taste as good as it smells. It does improve however after a few mouthfuls. I really feel you need time to adjust to this kind of beer.
Definitly an acquired taste. Having not too long ago discovered this style, I find it to not be very available where I live. I expect to try again at some point when possible.
