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.
