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.

Aroma of barnyard, horse blanket, some fruits (apple, pear). Pours golden, hazy with very nice and stable white head. Taste is medium sour, tart, funky, very complex. There is wood-like dryness, white fruits sweetness, some citrus. Brilliant!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Acidic aroma, green apple and salty. Head dissipates quickly, leaving a fizzy orange body. Bitter and dry upfront quickly followed by tart notes of bitter lemon. Thin body with high carbonation but true to style. Not a go to but a good intro to the style.

375 ml bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a slightly hazy deep gold with a small lively off-white head. Lemon, green apple, young pear, lime zest, some almond along with hay, horse blanket and salt aromas present. Taste is very complex with lots of sourness and tartness intertwining with some wonderful almond, wood-like dryness. Bone dry on the finish with strong lemon pith flavors as well. Has a nice bit of salt noticeable as well.

This almost perfect.. The aroma has funk, apple and hay.. golden color with some haze, frothy with head
Very complex and well rounded taste, extremely enjoyable. of course it is a bit sour but very well balanced so the sour taste is more like a freshness.
The palate is full, lively with a long, fresh finish.. WOW

I did not read the description and wanted to write that it is like champagne :-) But overall geuze is not my style so difficult for me to judge it appropriately.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
To paraphrase Keith Murray, how can I manifest its uniqueness in vernacular? Medium gold. The cloudiness brings on a dull glow, like the afternoon sun through thick glass. Fizzy white head. Deep, heavy funk on top of lemon peel and oak barrel. The aroma is layered with sour, farmhouse delights. Apricot, lime, cherry pit. A mix of dusty warm hay, wet wood and freshly turned earth. The complexity is dangerously enjoyable. Medium sour with no real harshness. All of the edges have been rounded off. Leans lacto but like all of the flavors, the sourness is multifaceted and wonderfully pleasant. Gentle mineral flavors. Long oaky finish. Effervescent carbonation with a full but light body. The beer is an absolute joy to drink.

Wow. The brett character on this is just amazing. Nice and sour, notes of crisp, sour apple, and mild hints of stale bread sticks. So complex . . . hat’s off
