stevedore gave me the opportunity to try this beer. As the cork was removed, there was a bit of an overflow. Fortunately only a tiny bit of the beer was lost, did not go out of control.

The beer had a cloudy orange appearance. It smelled funky or perhaps stinky. I can't help but think of my son's sweaty feet. Maybe some rotten fruit. It's not a bad smell though, I love it. Its unique and interesting. The aroma is definitely the first of that kind that I experience.

Taste wise this is a tart bomb, it just drilled into my cheekbones. It's also unbelievably sour. Minimal sweetness detected in this beer. At first I thought it seemed sweet but it's really the tartness that is the highlight of this beer. There are also some notable bitter lemon rind. The beer is highly acidic as I could tell at the finish. Kind of like when you eat a lemon. It's lightly carbonated and has a light bodied mouthfeel.

Overall it's a great beer! The aroma and the taste contrast each other in this beer. What I smelled didn't exactly seem to match what the beer tasted like - as opposed to for example the smell and taste of an apple coming together. They both were completely different experiences in this beer. Awesome beer, it was great to share and talk about with a friend. I recommend it and definitely share with someone. Hope to try this again someday.

Served in a snifter. Pours a slightly hazy, dark golden with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of funk and lemon zest. Very sour taste, not much sweetness. Finishes dry. Gets more complex as it warms in the glass. Light mouthfeel with effervescent carbonation. Overall, an extremely well crafted geuze.
