2009 vintage poured into a goblet. thanks Eric!

A- slightly hazy mahogany body with a 1" white head that reduces to a ring. No lacing.

S- Funky belgian yeast, sour grapes, citrus, green apple, some oak and caramel.

T- Dry, citrus zest, tart green apple, citrus, leather, oak, caramel and rye on the finish.

M- crisp and refreshing, medium carbonation

Very enjoyable geuze.. balanced and just sour enough.

Date: 3/23/13
Location: Half-Time Mamaroneck
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Copper in color. Very hazy With a constant ring of carbonation at the top.
Aromatics: It has that lemon/sour one comes to expect from a gueze.
Flavor: Sour and tart. With the lemon and apple flavors that I could smell. There is a dryness in the background that tastes a bit like hay. The mouthfeel is dry and makes me want to drink more.
Finish: A very dry finish. With the fruit. But it is the same throughout.
Notes: Bottled 2009

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.
