2011-2012 vintage. Cork dated 10492. Served in a geuze tumbler 2/1/15. This cork popped out with a vengeance...

A- Clear golden-copper body. Frothy, effervescent 3 finger white head that takes a while to settle down. Should have poured this one gently, but it is certainly a well carbonated beer. Nice retention, thick collar, not much lacing.

S- Peppercorns, floral notes, a moderate funk- not as much wet hay or mustiness as Cantillon, but the former 2 notes come across reasonably well here. Crisp wheat sharpness. Not superbly complex, but sets the table reasonably well.

F- Mild-moderate level of funky hay and must, combined with a mild lemon zest up front. Plenty of floral notes, some peppers. Drinks a lot like a saison. Not particularly acidic, although there is a reasonable amount which is nowhere near overwhelmingly strong. Nice dry lemon zest on the finish.

M- Medium bodied, nice effervescence, good carbonation. Quite drinkable. Not too sour, not too funky, seems to be just right if you're in the mood for some lambic.

O- Good geuze; I would put this slightly above average especially when you factor in the availability and affordability in addition to the palatal qualities this beer brings.
