750 ml bottle to snifter (HUGE thanks to dudeabide). Looks great; a hazy orange with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells incredible! CHEESE and funk! Tastes like it smells with a nice, lively mouthfeel. B.O.M.B.!!!!!

The pour is golden orange with a thick white head. The nose is lemons, orange funk, leather, straw, berry. The taste is high sweet, low bitter, nice and tart. The texture is crisp and clean, body is light and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle poured(secretly) uh hmmm huge white foamy head after each pour, amazing how much head came out of this single 750ml smell was cheese... cheese... and more cheese. flavor was one of the most well balanced geuze i have ever had. much more mild than the nose.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2013 750mL bottle at Akkurat, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Nose has incredible barnyard funk...wow...with horse blanket, and more funk - holy shit this is complex. Flavour brings out leather, barnyard funk, horse blanket, and some dry citrus notes. Tremendously complex and funky. Feels a little tired, as though this has peaked a year or two ago, but the complexity is wonderful and the drink ability is extremely high. A world class brew.

Bottle, 03/17/2013. Pours amber gold, huge rocky head resides to a nice layer of foam on the surface, residual lacing left in its wake. Rich, tart fruity aroma- green apple and white grape, cantaloupe, soft grapefruit with lemon pulp, with earthy, musty, barnyard notes, mushroom and bit of cheese, lots of oak. Taste is grapefruit, lemon and citrus, sour white fruit, crumbly light blue cheese, mushrooms, rustic barnyard oaky funk. Sparkling, medium palate, soft carbonation. Balanced, very complex, an incredible geuze. One of the best for me.

Sampled at the CCB/RateBeer/Pre-Hunah Tasting (Tampa, FL). Pours a nice richer hazy golden amber pour, darker body, nice glow, with frothy offwhite head atop. Good aromas offer lemon, melon, and gentle white grape. Lactic acid meets straw and barnyard brett, touches of straw, oak, and farmhouse funk. Some bready malts, straw, bigger lactic element shows banana, lemon, and melon. Big aromas burst. Initial is big flavors, tons of fruit, yogurt, and white grape. Some lemons, oranges, and apples. Some pear, oak, and bready malts. Lactic elements, farmhouse, gentle yeast and sweet bready and grainy malts. The flavors burst up front, big citrus, white grape, melon. A firmer dryness into the backend, great, with a sour punch up front that trails off as we move back. Stillt art, rich lactic, firm bretty funk. Some grain, straw, oak. Richer lactic elements, big fruit flavors, perfectly balanced as a big sour uppercut upfront trails off with firm body, funk, and rich fruit flavors. Sourness stays firm past the initial brunt. Really damn good beer.

Bottle sent by an amazing secret Santa. I honestly never thought Id get the chance to try this, so thank you for sending this bottle Santa. Lightly hazy, orange in color, and a small, fluffy, white head sits on top. Fruity aroma, with a little dustiness, and a bit of funk. Not as tart as I had anticipated, but not that isnt neccisarily bad. Good amount of sourness and acidity upfront with some lemon, some yogurt character towards the finish. Nice puckering finish that goes on forever. Really, really good beer, and Im happy to share this with a couple good buddies and the girlfriend.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2015 Sample from a bottle at Monks for Zwanze day. Pours a cloudy golden orange shade with small to medium sized white head, tons of lacing was present in this gueuze along with medium carbonation. Aromas were dusty barn, wood, earth, and lemon skin. Taste was delicious with acidic fruits and yeast, currants, grapefruit, grass, horseblanket, light cheese and other funk. Finish was very dry and puckery tart in the mouth. Great lambic. Re rate at Ryans. this stuff is stupid good dusty lambic with leather, dust, cedar, and beach dune. One of the best lambics ive had.
