Slightly skunked bottle bought in Glasgow. Reminds me a lot of gueuze tilquin -- a bit too hoppy for my tastes, especially after two years in the bottle. Nice level of tartness. Very pricey

72/100

A great Geuze.Hoppier than other Belgian counterparts with more accented herbal & grassy notes.
I might prefer this over Cantillon's Geuze.

Popped the cork on a 2016. 2 years on it. Pours a copper to orange, hazy with a thin bright white soapy head. Nose of floral, wood, peaches and grass. Taste is a whirlwind of flavor. Fruits like apricots, peaches, melon on lemons mingle with a damp funky earthiness. Notes of wet grass, hay and moss. Huge oak character that adds to the beers dryness. Funk and yogurt play well and the acidity level is perfect. Super dry, crisp and tart finish. It’s delicious.

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.
