330ml bottle poured into tulip during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood Seal Beach. Yellow-orange hazy body with tall fizzy white head that settles to a film. Aroma is tart grapes, sour apple, wet grass, barnyard, wood, and a touch of tropical/citrus sweetness. Taste is moderately tart with the green apple and sour grapes carrying the way. There is a good level of funky yeast and a touch of both woody bitterness and powdered sugar sweetness. Light body, thin texture, high carbonation, tart dry finish.

A: Slightly hazy yellow, head quickly fades
S: Sour, apple, oak, funky
T: Tart, less apple than I expected, with some interesting fruits in the finish (I get apricot and white grape), low on the oak but really balanced. Seriously, this is a perfectly balanced beer.
F: Small bubbles, light body

Overall: For a special occasion, this beer is very rewarding. I'd drink this every day with lunch if I were a rich man!

Golden, orangy, hazy colour.
Very little head. What's there is white.
Crazy soury malt aroma with fruits.
Wow! What a taste! Definite sour! Cider like apple.
Clean thin mouth feel.
My first Geuze (never mind the fake one Samuel Adams I had previously).
Gotta try a different kind. Definetly!

Most have rated this a world class geuze. I'm not ready to go on in on that one. Now, it is true that I have not drank many in this style. And it may have something to do with the fact that my bottle was 5 years aged (maybe they age well maybe they don't). So . . . I will revisit it again someday and hopefully give a better review.
