Poured from a 12.7 fl oz. bottle into a snifter.
a fairly murky light amber-gold body with a small head that lasts a while.
Smells very tart like sour apples, lemon, vinegar, and funk.
Tastes extremely sour and I absolutely love it. Lemon, sour apple, white grape, and earthy funk. No metallic taste.
Mouthfeel is medium and is carbonated perfectly with lots of fizz. It's got that bubbly champagne mouthfeel.
I would really like to drink this beer again.

Bottled October 2012

A: Pours a very slightly hazy medium to dark golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and just a touch of orange highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy but slightly fizzy off-white head that quickly reduces to a mottled extremely thin film covering about half of the surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong sour aromas with some barnyard funkiness and just a touch of yeast.

T: Moderate amounts of sourness upfront with some light to moderate flavors of vinegar, white wine, white grapes, apple, lemon/citrus, and oak. There is also a light presence of yeast + funkiness in the taste and relatively little bitterness.

M: Just heavier than light bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and viscous with some light to moderate amounts of acidic prickliness in the finish.

O: There is a decent amount of complexity to the smell and the taste of this beer that only increases as the beer warms up. This beer is not too sour for the style so is pretty approachable even for folks new to the style. Just enough funkiness to keep it interesting. Relatively easy to drink, especially for the style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Served from a 12.7oz bottle into an Allagash coolship glass.

Appearance- Golden/orange with a quick bubbly white head. Lots of carbonation.

Smell- I don't even have to stick my nose up to it to smell the funkiness. Meyer lemon. Vinegar. Some vanilla oakiness. Sweet grapefruit.

Taste- Oh wow thats tart. Getting goosebumps. Lots of lemon and grapefruit. Not vinegary tasting. Some oakiness. Very earthy funkiness.

Mouthfeel- Very carbonated, but not as much as certain other geuzes I've had. Super crisp with an awesome mouth-cleansing finish.

Overall- This is a damn fine geuze. I would get it more often, but it is slightly more expensive than Tilquin or even 3 Fontenine. This will be a nice treat every now and then.
