Appearance: pours primarily clear in a golden orangish color, in the class it is hazy and for the most part orange with a slight goldish hue. Very effervescent head that dissipates quickly, but has nice nucleation. Stunning appearance for a beer.

Aroma: Cannabis is pretty dominant to me with this one, however it still works well with the other aromas. Lots of funk, little amount of straw, some lemon zest, and a very slight amount of Brett.

Taste: Cannabis is immediate but is lost quickly with the subtle tartness, straw, lemon zest, slight orange peel and very light Brett. No earthiness present which is a bit surprising but with this beer it is actually pleasant. This beer is actually quite simple in flavor profile, but it’s simplicity is executed perfectly. It is still complex and has multiple levels of flavors to be discovered. Very well balanced and very tasty.

Mouthfeel: This is one of the best mouthfeels for a sour I’ve ever had. It is not super resinous or acidic. Very light with the perfect carbonation, and the best part is the tartness dissipates quickly and actual flavors are the only thing that lingers.

Overall: I think Cantillon makes a better Geuze, but when there is no Cantillon to be found, this will go beyond sufficing. Couldn’t pass this up in a bottle shop even if they have Cantillon!

Looks great, huge head that lasts. Taste is tart lemon. Extremely enjoyable. Nothing negative to say.

Pours a cloudy yellow-orange, fizzy one finger white head, very thin ring retained, no lacing.. about right for the style. Smell: peach, honey, lemon tea; mild barnyard and vanilla notes. Taste: snappy grain, nectarine, lemon-lime, tiny goat cheese character, oaky vibe. Light-medium bodied, plentiful carbonation, tart and semi-dry peach skin. Lemonade burps. Yes, very good.

750mL bottle into a snifter.

A- Bright orange body, cloudy in a juicy way, heavy lacing and a pale white head. 4.25

S- Tart and salty like a gose, acidic. Lemony with faint fruit. A touch of malt aroma. 4

T- Peachy, apricot, earthy fruit, some funky flavor. 4.5

M- Tart, earthy, vinous. A touch of acidity. Drinks smooth and easy. 4.5

Love the peachiness and how easy it drinks.
