4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Gold pour with a white head. Amazing musty, earthy, funky aroma well integrated with tart lemon and grapefruit. The huge funk translates into the flavor. Musty basement, earth, horse blanket, wet hay, lemon, grapefruit and grain are seemlessly interwoven. I loved the massive funk, but would have liked a little more citrus or sour/unripe fruit to brighten the flavor. With that said, this may be the best geuze I’ve ever had.

(750ml bottle during RBWG - thanks to ericandersnavy, Rating #4400!)
cloudy gold, obvious thorough carbonation. Nose of char wood, tart, berry, earth, complex, perfectly tart, amazing. I really don’t know how to describe this beer, but as of 4,400 ratings, it’s simply the best beer I’ve ever had. Big thanks Eric!!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. A rather oily pour leaves a lightly unclear, headless beer in my glass. Doesn’t look impressive in any way, but rustic and sort of sexy anyway. Lightly dusty on the nose, with some vinegar hints, overall more intense than the Roze, especially on the funky side. More lemon, more barnyard, but without the rubbery touch from the female of the two. Intensely tart and dry on the palate, with lemony, funky flavors lasting for a good while. Even though there was a slightly unpleasant rubbery note in the Roze, I prefer that one. Both are certainly good beers, but I also think they’re overrated, probably due to the rare-factor. Really pleased to have tasted them though. 111229

Pretty cloudy orange beer, no head, very small line of white bubbles on the rim of the glass. Aroma: fruity, marzipan, bit sweet, little dusty, lemon juice, zest. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity, some peaches, almonds, peppery, little sweet. Aftertaste: fruity, soft sourness, bit spicy, some alcohol noticeable, lemony, orange juice, bit dry. Not bad, but let’s not overreact, shall we?

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle generously shared by BenC...thanks Ben! - Pours hazy amber with a thin white head. Light lemon on the nose, a bit of earthy, cheesy funk, and real delicate tartness. Could smell this all week. Taste is real delicate and gentle, lots of citrus rind, lemon, light yogurt, touch of cheese, and a long, light citrus/sulphur finish. Really dry. Gentle carbonation with a fluffy, light body. Wow.

75cl Bottle @ RBBSG, courtesy of Travir. Hazy amber coloured beer with no carbonation and a small white head. Stronger light sour fruity, almost peachy and earthy hinted aroma. Smouther full palate. Finish is sour fruity again with a stronger fruity and even light herby hint. Surprisingly smouth, special.
