4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy grapefruit orange color with a fair amount of egg shell head that faded fairly quickly. No legs and light lacing. Good thin collar. Aroma is very much like when I would march in my highschool homecoming parade and the floats were all covered in straw. I also pick up some lemon and grapefruit. The flavor provile is very citrusy tart up front, then some dry grass. Nice silty mouthfeel, very dry, and that tartness stings the tongue. Very glad I got to try this, but I wouldn’t put it in my top 5, maybe not in the top 10.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
It pours hazy gold with straw highlights; the head is off white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: hay, horse barn, sulfur, boiled eggs, toasted barley, and oat bran. The taste is super heavy sour and lightly bitter; there are notes of: lemon juice, horse barn, oat bran, and black vinegar (chikiang vinegar). The palate is full bodied and has medium carbonation, with a long finish. Overall, buckle up bitches it’s going to be a bumpy ride - thoroughly complex.

Pilsnerfärgad med stort vit skum. Doftar och smakar som en suröl ska göra men lite "fegt"! Riktigt bra iaf!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber colour with a thick fizzy white head. Aroma of green apple, barnyard, cheese, white wine vinegar, some tartness, some yeast and white grapes. Taste of green apple, white grapes, moderate tartness, subtle oak, some wild yeast and quite funky. Light, champagne like body and an oily texture. A dry, lip-smacking citrusy, tart finish. A complex, refreshing, tart beer. Got better the more I drank. The best geuze I’ve tasted so far.
