Still roughly new to geuzes but found this to be quite enjoyable at a year past bottling with funky flavors of oak, sourness, lemon, apricots, pears, floral hops, earthy, and wood.

January 10th, 2014 Bottling. Yellow US label.

Aromas of mushroom, Camembert, gasoline, mild acidity.

Taste of musty funk, raisin, fuel-like funkiness, dried fruits, elderflower, barnyard-y flavors and mild acidity.

A really interesting year for this beer. A lot of different levels of funk going on with maybe some slight oxidation lending to the raisin and dried fruit flavor. Fantastic beer.

16/17 Bottling date: 4/5/17 a blend of one, two & three year old lambics. Lambics aged on 6 different barrels's, originating from wort of 9 different brews. 5.3 % abv.

12.7 oz. Bottle cage & cork.

A lively golden and amber hued liquid. A bushy white foam sits up tall, fizzles slowly and leaves only a thin patchwork of foam, scattered about.

A sweet, wild and funky nose! Sweet and sour candies with sour cabbage and earthy herbs. Dried golden wheat and wet grasses permeate straight out of my limited edition "water.org" Stella Artois glass.

The sourness is medium level for this wildly fermented wonder. Sweet tart candies, green earthy tones of grass and golden wheat, veggies, peppery middle, soo light feeling and the texture is very jazzy, except for the more relaxed finish which is a result from the extensive blending and barrel aging process. Complex, yet soo damn easy to drink. A true marvel of brewing alchemy.

Pours a clear amber-orange with a finger of head. Aroma is orange, lemongrass, herbal, and grass. There is a touch of oak at the back. Flavor profile is orange, lemongrass, herbal, and lemon. The final note there turns it slightly sour, but only enough to cause a little pucker. Mouth feel is champagne like, with an effervescent and dry feel. It's bubbly, but allows the flavor profile to shine rather than distract from the flavor profile. Overall, a bubbly, favorably-simple Oude Geuze.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 375mL bottle.

Bottled: 1/16/17
Best Before: 10/26/37
Blend n° 14 - Season 16-17

Pours a deep, hazy, rusty golden color, with bubbling white foam that quickly fades away. No lace retention, with champagne carb continuously bubbling up.

Awesome aromas that have a grassy, hay-like backbone, with lots of lemony citrus and oak barrel present throughout. A nice subtle tartness rounds everything out.

The yeast makes its presence known right away. A symphony of green apple, lemon, grapefruit, earth, grass, oak, and white wine. A slight funk, but nothing that puts off from the amazing flavor profile.

A light/medium champagne-like body. Effervescent, dry. High carbonation.
