SRM 8-9 (clear dark gold) that glows from within a Boon flute glass while a thin, frothy white head leaves little lacing. Constant random carbonation can be seen within the clear beer.
Barnyard aromas compete with fermenting orchard fruit. Earthy autumn aromas add a mixture of sweet and sour. Also, fresh-cut oak is present.
Quite sour, even for a Geuze. Something seems off, yet it is still pleasant. High acidity and strong fermented apple cider is joined with high sweetness as well. A long biting finish never quite leaves. Warmth brings out oak flavors.
Alcohol is as expected with a light body and ample carbonation that makes for a champagne-like experience. Balance may be lacking, but for a Geuze, that is acceptable. The finish is very dry.
This is a beer for sitting back after a long drive on a warm, sunny day. Let the quiet settle in and listen to gentle breezes while birds chirp in the trees.
