3.58/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Light champagne bubbles in a pale straw colored body.

This smelled skunked and funked, quite 'ripe'.

Light-bodied, well balanced. Not too tart, but definitely funky tasting.

Not to start a tirade, but I think this beer was a victim of sitting on a shelf in its green bottle. I don't see the point of using green bottles for beer, even ones with low hop content. I think I'd have been disappointed if I had cellared this for years myself only to find it had been skunked from the day I bought it.

3.91/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

375ml bottle poured into an Omer Blond tulip glass. Best before 2034.

A: Pours a rocky and huge three fingers of sudsy off white head. Light gold/orange body with a steady stream of bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass. Head retention for days.

S: Up front an almost toasted oak note before jumping into all sorts of funky farmhouse, burned rubber/mineral, stinky cheese, lemon juice and over ripened fruit smells.

T: Oaky start before leading into apple vinegar, rotting fruit, horse blanket, a heavy lactic acid and an lemon juice sourness. There's a unique mineral and bitter character that sticks out as well. Nice wheat cracker finish.

Mf: Light body with a very prickly carbonation that really brings out the acidity in the beer. Once you adjust thought it's highly drinkable and even thirst quenching.

Overall: A great interpretation of an authentic geuze. Lots of weird funky and sour flavors that set it apart from the American sour ales. Recommended and easy to find.
