Pours a slightly hazy straw colored golden yellow with a thin layer of active carbonation.

Citric acidity, slight funk, crisp, and dry.

Subtle grape leads into tart citrus, light musty funk, and refreshingly dry.

Light-bodied, medium-high carbonation, tart, dry, and refreshing.

Overall, this beer is all about subtle nuances, but does not disappoint.

Nose was classic Cantillon funk...stands out a great deal more in the geueze than their fruit lambics. Earthy and barnyard. Taste is sour without being over the top, and holds complex light fruit notes underneath. Pretty much awesome in every way, assuming you enjoy the style. Others in my group didn't want their glass after first taste...so I snapped them up too.
