Perhaps the perfect Geuze. It showcases every combination of aromas and flavors desired, it an intense yet balanced manner.

This is a pinnacle of gooziness. Extremely complex and sophisticated. The funk and sour components are well balanced. The funkiness is especially rich and wonderful compared to many other lesser gueuzes -- hay, barnyard and cheese but no off notes. Seek this out. Excellent.
