Vintage 2011 / L: Clear. Medium carbonation with minuscule bubbles. Delicate foam, like a good champagne, beautiful lacing. S: Sour and grapefruit peel, a hint of yeast and young wood. T: Grapefruit, a lemony aftertaste, a slight sweet note, gin tonic. This is a perfectly balanced geuze. F: Fresh and bubbly. Like a good champagne, but a puckery aftertaste. O: A perfect geuze and one of the best beers I've ever drunk.

Based on old tasting notes:

Was recommended by a friend, and was the first of the style to try. Because of unruly Texas laws, many small Belgian breweries that make this style are not readily available for purchase in the state, but I was told that this was one of the best that I could find here.

Appearance: Bubbly, effervescent similar to a champagne, with the white head mellowing out shortly after pouring. Lots of bubbles with a straw colored appearance.

Smell: Belgian yeast, very very funky, like mildew or horse blanket. Some citrus in the nose as well. This smells like fair grounds mixed with green apple and citrus peel. This smells so strange, but I just want to go in for whiff after whiff.

Taste: Tart, pungent, sour and super funky. Has sort of a blue cheese or lamb-type pungent-ness. My first thought is, 'Wait, this is beer?' but I can't help myself from wanting another sip. As it warms, the citrus fades and the rank funkiness really shines, as does the apple flavor.

Mouthfeel: Very well carbonated, medium body, and coats the mouth nicely.

Overall: This is an absolutely delicious beer, and I'm excited to try as many in this style as I can.

Poured from a 375ml bottle into my Fantome tulip glass. Pours a hazy rusty copper with head that clears to just the rim of the glass.

Smells very tart/acidic, earthy. Hits your mouth pretty light then comes in with tart citrus which fades to a rich floral taste that hangs on the palette.

Extremely drinkable, light mouthfeel with only a little bit of that clinging sour.
