Best before 2034. Cork stomped easily.
Golden yellow color with a huge head with medium retention.
Bold sour funky aroma with notes of lemon, vinegar, lots of horse mantle, leather and band-aid.
Flavor is more tamed and elegant, notes of apple vinegar, funky sourness lime, yeast, green wine, mild herbal bitterness, must, some lactic and pears. Dry and acid aftertaste.
Light body with a carbonation that deceives it for border medium.
Very good Geuze, it has a nice balance between sweet and sour and great complexity. Quite pleasant to drink. Should please a wide range of beer drinkers.

This is an oude Geuze that will appeal to a lot of drinkers. It has everything of a oude Geuze from the Senne valley but it is also quite mild and not too sour. I liked it very much.

375ml bottle dated 3/14/14 (BB 2034)

Hazy golden pour with stable head.

Nose of sweet lemon, hay, yogurt, floral.

Flavor is on the lighter side of geuze but very nice. Slightly sweet, lemony goodness with a midpalate of horseblanket funk, yogurt and a moderate amount of bitterness. The finish is dry and tannic with some oak presence. Medium sour.

Medium bodied and slightly oily on the tongue. Full, active carbonation leads to a creamy and full mouthfeel.

Overall, an enjoyable and refreshing geuze. Lacking some depth but certainly a step above a Cuvee Renee. It's surprisingly funky. I think this would benefit from a little more time in the bottle. Would certainly tick again.
