From 04/14/12 notes. I believe Thorpe429 brought this one and Brad brough the Roos, but it could be the other way around. Either way, huge thanks to both fo you for sharing these side by side at the sour tasting; they've been huge wants of mine for a very long time.

a - Pours a murky dark orange-brown color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Little bit darker then the Roos.

s - Smells of sour fruits, barnyard funk, oak, earthy notes, citrus, hay, light spice. Ton of sour fruits, very nice nose.

t - Tastes of barnyard funk, sour fruits, sour citrus, lemons, hay, earthy notes, spice, fruity malts, bread. More funk then the nose and even more sour fruits; amazing taste. One of the best tasting gueuzes at the tasting and I've ever had.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Crisp and easy to drink; perfect mouthfeel.

o - Overall this beer blew me away; one of the best beers I had at the tasting and one of the best sours I've had in general. I think everyone preferred this one to the Roos; I found this one funkier and the Roos with a little more spice. An Awesome beer I really hope I can have again.

Re-reviewed at Akkurat next to millennium, blauw, and other main players. Pour is golden yellow, hazy, thin white head with big gentle bubbles. Very light funk, paper and dusty cobweb, salty and rindy with light hint of soap. Golden fruits behind, sour and citrusy, fantastic balance. Flavor actually falls off slightly, still great. Dusty, salty up front with cheese rind notes and lots of mineral mid palate. Good golden fruits, rather bright and nice level of sourness. Light body, soft palate, highly carbonated and nice dry finish. Such a great beer and still holding up incredibly well, had several bottles throughout the trip and each was great.

Big thanks to Kevin for sharing this at the Epic tasting where he, Frank, and Jeremy really shook the groud we sat on with insane beers.

A-dark hazy golden amber color with orange edges and tons of a tight creamy head with a spotty lace.

S-the nose brings a yeasty funkiness with notes of an earthy mushroom and cheese. a lemon tartness comes in towards the back.

T-the funky earthy musk is right up front, notes of aged cheese and chardonnay, tart white grapes, soft peaches, with a touch of sweetness. acidity comes in at the finish with the lemon from the nose.

M-great feel, a little grainy, huge carbonation with a crisp finish and solid body throughout.

D-extremely tasty with the highest utmost complexity. subtle flavors ranging all over the map but truly working together. couldn't drink a ton of this; but this is insanely well done.

pour was golden orange, nice fluffy white head. built up quick and just stuck there.

nose was very interesting. along with the cheese and funk was a mild berry aspect. picked up very faint blueberry and lemon. nice old oak. stunning nose.

very tart with the help of light lemon and sour berry. cheesy and funky with a strong old barnyard presence. a fair strong oak and musty flavor through the finish which helped the dry bitterness.

fairly carbonated with strong bite. very dry and bitter.

delicious, worthy, amazing.

Pours a slightly hazy bright golden color with a big bone white head that settles into a decent foam cap.

Sweet, tangy fruit. Berries, citrus, and slight peach. Dirty, stanky, horsey funk. Ancient oak barrels. Slight enteric raunch. Old, potentially past-their-prime hay bales.

Humongous funk and cheese. Tangy fruit and mild fruity sweetness. Lingering musty oak. Lemons and underripe stone fruit. Old forgotten barns with lots of hay and cobwebs. Oddly, but not unpleasantly, lactic cured artisan salami lingers in the finish. Cedar like spice arises as it opens up.

Highly carbonated, pretty spritzy, leaves your palate scrubbed as if with a Brillo pad, what with all the acid and tannins.

One of my favorite beers I have had. Fantastic stuff. I am a fan of this intense funk.

Drank this superb blended Geuze on many occasions with more to come!

Hazy reddish orange with a huge two finger bright white head, leaving a light film and thin wisps of lace down the glass; perfect!! Aroma is typical Armand geuze with the funkiness you expect from his Lambics. Barnyard, horse blanket, lemon peel, sour apples, drying oak tannins, and a bright acidic tartness; it doesn't get much better than this. I could savour this aroma for hours without a taste from the glass; very complex! Then comes the taste with a nice lemony zest but balanced with other fruit like sweetness and hints of oak and earth and of course funky barnyard, horse blanket, and just the perfect touch of tartness. Mouthfeel has light tannins, delicate, nuanced and well balanced with a nice puckering aftertaste that leaves me drooling for more.

Personally, this once in a life time Geuze is second to none; Fantastic!!!
