2008 vintage.

A. Light straw color. Opaque. Poured full 2 finger fine-bubble, egg shell head that slowly retreats to a film.

S. Neutral oak and wild yeast with some minor notes of light malts and straw/dust. Certainly some funk.

T. Sour on the front. Major notes of sour yeast, and neutral oak. Grass and light malts. Fairly simple but excellent.

M. Smooth. High carbonation. Light body.

O. A staple - very good. Sour and neutral oak, as it should. This is very consistent between metrics. This is certainly recommended to sour fans.

Big and Belgian, that's how I like them. Not in a gay way. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Just sayin'. It pours cloudy gold with a soapy white head that shows no sign of letting up before I'm ready to go further. It smells of oranges, peppermint, hay, and a barn. A particular one, not just any one. But I will keep the location secret. Just to be that way. The taste is sour cherries, grass, and a nice bready finish. This is a phenomenally balanced flavor. Not too sour, not too sweet, not too dry. It is the goldilocks of geuze. If they start putting that on the label, I get credit. The mouthfeel is soft, slightly tingly, and light. Overall, I really feel this is a fantastic beer. It may be the best I've had. Nice, nice job.

Pours amber with a lightly packed head.
Nose shows horse blanket, apple, earthy Brett and elderflower.
Moderately acidic flavours, more earthy Brett, apple, pear and elderflower. Quite herbal. Incredibly drinkable.
Carbonation is a bit over the top.
