S: aromas of mild fruity funk, wet wool, over ripe slightly bruised fruit, some berry and a faint hint of honey.

L: hazy peach generating very little head. It has a champagne-like effervescence and initial streams of fast rising bubbles quickly disappear.

T: It starts with a big tart berry lemon attack with traces of apple. The sour flavors are moderate to moderately high, the funk is moderate, the wheat is moderately low with the balance to the tart. There are no enteric, smoky or cigar like flavors. Ii is a touch vinegary. There are no hop flavors or bitterness and no cheesy hop flavors.

F: The body is medium light to light and the carbonation is medium high.

O: This is a very refreshing and flavorful drink.

This beer pours a brownish gold with a large fizzy head and bib bubbles. The aroma has dusty soilbarnyard, sour orange juice, and apple cider vinegar as components. The flavor is bright and semi sour, with tones of apple cider vinegar, and dusty barnyard qualities. The mouthfeel is light, tart, and boldly fizzy. Overall this is an awesome beer - refreshing and bold, and utterly enjoyable.

An aggressive geueze but it works well and tastes balanced. The plums provide a great backdrop. Tastes more heavy handed than cantillon geueze, looks murky, darker than other geuezes. Deep farmhouse funk. Tartness is above average but balanced and not too aggressive in that it takes away from enjoyment. Really enjoyed this.

Poured into a tulip. A clear orange color with an effervescent frothy white head. Active bubbling up from low enucleation points. The funkiest aroma I have experienced, with diesel fuel, hay, grass, and leather. Moderately tart. The palate is more fruity, with white grapes, cherries, lemons, apricots, and cheesy, funky notes.
