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.

Best gueuze I've had, with just a prepostersouly awesome nose, evoking tropical fruit, earthy, dusty funk, and a whole host of other aromas I can't even put my finger on. Good and tart but never so much as to stop you from picking up interesting nuances of flavor as you go. This is one for the ages.

(Edit: after another couple bottles, this is clearly in my 5* category -- those rare beers that transcend the style, that ARE the style. I could wax rapturous on the virtues of this beer, but it's not necessary, really. Simply put, it's the embodiment of geuze and something every last beer drinker needs to experience.)
