Bottling date 03 Nov 2011, opened 23 Mar 2014.

A: The cork popped off after just a couple of turns on the wire cage. The geuze pours a nice clear orange/amber color with a large white head, which dissipates to about 1/4 finger head with a little bit of lacing.

S: The second the cork came out the funk encompassed the room. Smells like a barn, rich and complex with some sourness. I'm finding it almost overwhelmingly complicated. White grapes? Leather? There are many smells going on and all intertwined. Very balanced.

T: Prickly from the carbonation. Funky with an earthy feel to it. Sour, but not vinegary with a slight puckering. Refreshing and tart like blackberries.

M: Coating and slightly thicker than I had expected. Medium

O: Very enjoyable, and lament that I only had a 375ml as there are so many layers to this brew. Very enjoyable.
