2014-2015 bottle (2-3 years old). Serious horseblanket. Tart and champaigne dry finish. Really solid. A touch bretty and missing a little sweetness. Pretty darn awesome though.

From tasting notes. Pours a fairly clear gold with a quickly receding white foam collar. Barnyard funk, spice and fruit aromas. Big funky fruit flavors that cover the spectrum from unripe to overripe with citrus, grape and spice capped off by a rich, lemony tartness. Light, very fine carbonation and a very refreshing drink.

2011/2012 brewing season

Pours a hazed orange with loads of bubbles racing to the top. Foamy head made of tiny bubbles. Smells of wood, moss, dampness, citrus, yeast/brett, wheat, barley. Excellence balance of sweet and sour. Bone dry finish. Big citrus, yeasty funk, pale malts. Mouthfeel: tiny bubbles and fairly relaxed carbonation. Acid on the tongue is sharp. Excellent classic geuze.

Aroma: Sour and barnyard with a pleasant apple and hints of grapefruit. A horsey, goaty aroma immerges after a sitting for a few minutes.

Appearance: A golden straw color with excellent clarity and aggressive effervescence. A thick, mouse like white head that is very slow to dissipate but never goes away.

Flavor: a nice clean, sharp sour flavor that brings out the hint of grapefruit that’s in the background. A bit of malt and wheat flavor and a hint of sweetness. A long finish on

Mouthfeel: It has a light body and is highly carbonated but it isn’t thin.

Overall Impression:
An outstanding, balanced gueuze that I really enjoy. The funky, heady aroma let you know you in for a real treat and flavors aren’t overly aggressive but a bit of barnyard funk and defiantly sour.
