4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear orange, light foam dissipates fairly quickly. Fragrant, fruity citrus smell with notes of the oak aging. Dry body, sherry like, a little funk but it is subdued. It comes through stronger as the glass warms. Oakiness in the finish. Only 6% ABV, but this drinks like an aperitif. Excellent.

P: A clear orange/amber with only a few white bubbles. S: Very funky, rotting wood, pineapples, cider and a bit of socks. T: Wow, this is so balanced between fruits and funk, you get some sour limes, tropical fruits, oak and barnyard funk. M: Medium body with medium/high carbonation and it ends rather dry. O: Really great balance geuze.

Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Tons of white grape, pear, peach and tons of funk. Cloudy gold with a decent frothy white head. Tart vinous notes, light pear and fruit. So very well balanced and tartness is in check. Great.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Like a sharp and snappy gueuze. Big and wonderful 3F yeast with crackery grapefruit and meaty yeast texture. Sweet and sour finish. Cloudy golden pour with good head and lacing. Light bitterness. Comes together wonderfully. Great balance. Bottle pour at Churchkeys 5th.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
375ml bottle served in a Kriek Flute glass.
Corked bottle from 2011. Valid until 2021.
A: Pours a nice orange clear color forming a huge white to yellow head. Very bubbled. Excellent retention and tons of lacings left in the glass. Body is very carbonated and you can see a lot of bubbled popping from the bottom of the glass
S: Lambic like in the nose. VERY fruity and tart. Notes of apples, white grapes and pears. Sweet grains, Lambic yeasts, a little bit metallic. Light notes of wood
T: Absolutely great. Amazingly Geuze. Very well balanced sweetness/sourness. More acid than the traditional gueuze. Upfront is slightly sweet and grainy but very fruity with notes of apples and white grapes. Vinegar. Bit metallic. End is intense Lambic yeasts
M: Light body, high carbonation. Such a pleasure. Sour and vinegar aftertaste
O: Excellent drinkability. Perfect Geuze!

"This is a bit overpriced these days, at more than twice as much as the regular geuze (which ainít cheap to begin with) but damn if it ainít one of the best-in-style Iíve had. Oddly more clarity of color in this 4 year blend then the 3. Hands down better. Cleaner yet funkier with a livlier aroma, flavor, and feel."
