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.

37cl bottle at home. Hazy muddy orange with a thin white head. Smells like macerated grapes, unripe apricots, vinegar, barnyard funk. Moderately sour and bitter, much milder than the nose suggested, with a high carbonation and a bitter and sour aftertaste.

Had in London, purchased from Craft Beer Co. in Clerkenwell. Drunk from a standard red wine glass.

S: apples, dry white wine.

A: dark golden/orange, thick white head that persists as a light covering.

T: dry cider/wine, moderately sour, bright on the tongue with acidity and effervescence. Bitterness comes on the finish.

F: light body, high carb.
O: really balanced, delicious gueuze. Extremely carbonated; the cork shot out like a bullet.
