4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful fine laced head over deep golden brownish beer. Good intensity on nose of barnyard, citrus and herbaceous bread aroma and tones of "brown vinegar". Rich mouthfeel of herbs, upfront citric attack, a grassy bitterness and faint sweetness, finish refreshing lingers. Super balance. Memorable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drank this one with thanksgiving dinner.
A - Pours was honestly a pain. Huge amounts of foam made it take forever but once it settled it left slightly hazy amber orange liquid. It eventually dissipated down to a sticky white film leaving small webs of lace down the side of the glass.
S - Smells of strong drie fonteinen barnyard funk, light basement must, bit of lemon tartness and some earthen mineral. The funk is pretty strong throughout, just as I prefer it to be.
T - Taste is a little more balanced compared to the nose. Starts off with still strong barnyard funk and light must quickly giving way to hints of oak, lactic sourness, lemon tartness and some light graininess. Finish is pretty dry, lingering long after the finish.
M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Some robust carbonation helps drum up the funk to match the tartness, making it really easy to consume.
O - I don’t know why this stuff is still sitting on the shelves but I always buy it when I see it as it is truly a world class geuze. The price may be a little steep for the size but it is worth it to drink such an awesome geuze.

Bottle. Golden colour, small white creamy head. Very very soft in the mouth, smooth and even a little creamy. Aroma is lovely, really fruity, citrus, grapefruit, lightly funky, musky, lemon. Taste is beautiful, very light, first sips are very sour and sharp, but soon get used to it. Little bit cheesy too. Great stuff.
