Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is really well balanced with nice herbal notes, some light lemon acidity, medium oak. Hints of overripe tropical fruit and stone fruit skins. Some light alcohol as it warms with more barnyard funk coming through. Pours a fairly clear golden straw color with a large, white head that shows good retention as it recedes and lingers on the edges. No lacing or legs. Flavor is moderately acidic with some nice oak notes. Light lemon with a bit of pineapple and tropical fruit. Medium light bitterness. Some herbal notes with moderate barnyard funk. Again, very well balanced. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a very nice beer and a very well balanced geuze. Nice barnyard funk, acidity, herbal notes and fruit.
