Nice yellow gold color with around a medium body. Carbonation is just above average and has an almost champagne like quality ti it. Overall a nice feel to this beer
Arina is green apples, yeast, and a tart/ funk/ sour mix with all of it being about equal.
Taste really follows the aroma, comes off a bit dry in a pleasant way. Again the taste has in equal parts that sour, funk, green apple tartness.
This is an exceptional beer that would work great with cheese and fruit or to accompany a rich meal

Poured hazy golden honey with a small head that never fully dissapated and left little lacing.

Aroma is that of funky apples, pears, and grapes. Full and tart, anticipating some slightly sour funk.

Taste is exactly what the aroma suggested - tart, funky, and delicious.

Feel is terrific medium-light with great carbonation.

Overall, this is a lovely geuze. Great example of the style without the normal steep price tag. Recommended for sure.

Pouring from a 12.7 oz. bottle into a wine glass. 2014 bottle. Pours out an amazing clear golden color. Look somewhat like apple juice with a off white thick and well retained crown. The smell is funky and tart. Has notes of apple, pear, peaches and even some pineapple. The taste is a mirror image of the nose and the mouthfeel is very tart and acidic leaving you pucker up. Overall, this is very refreshing and I love the amount of sour it brings.

Very good all around. Tart but not overly sour. Crisp flavors. Excellent look and smell. Based on bottle code (google will lead you to how to decode it) it was bottled Feb 19, 2016, so had a good amount of age on it. Definitely worth trying and revisiting occasionally.

Fantastic example of the style. Sour, dry, yet fantastically drinkable. A perfect blend of flavors on the palate. Definitely suggest trying a bottle.

Pours a semi cloudy golden color with a nice quarter inch head. Smell is fruity and and slightly more sour. Sourness is is strong on the tongue and in the way groats going down. Fruitiness is hard to detect because of the sourness. I like sour beers, so this is my favorite style of lambic.

This is the first Geuze sour ale that I have sampled. It's sour & dry just as I expected based on previous reviews that I have read. When your in the mood for a different type of beer this is the beer for you. It's also quite pungent in both the aroma and taste. A little spearmint in there as well. This is very impressive as well as a real palate stretcher. I highly recommend trying this out if you can get a hold of a bottle. A-
