A bottle at a small watering hole in Bruges. This beer is dark yellow in color with lots of lively carbonation. Aroma and taste is similar. Typical Belgian geuze. Funky, leathery, tobacco leaf with a very dry finish. Easy to drink. Sour. Just a notch below Cantillon's version for overall funk and sour complexity.

bottled on 5 Jan 2012

A: pours a clear and bright gold with a half finger head that is dense and retains well into a duvel snifter
S: smells of bretty barnyard with some clean sourness and oak
T: starts off quite tart and sour apple but fades to some funk and oak. brett is somewhat prominent but not overbearing. aftertaste is kind of medicinal and band aidy with a bit of lingering sourness
M: lighter side of medium in the mouth with soft but prominent carb and a drying finish
O: an absolutely fantastic Geuze. good sourness, decent complexity and the wild fermentation has done a number on this beer.
