Just a plain good Geuze. Bitter, sour as a Geuze should be. Compared to it’s competitors (Girardin, Hanssens, ...) not the best, but a good compromise for a slightly cheaper beer

heavy (2663) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2016
May ’16. A 0.375 l bottle, 2012 vintage. It poured a hazy orange body with big head atop. Very nice crisp aroma of sour apple touched with lemon. Flavor was quite sour, too, but very balanced, so it was not overwhelming or offensive. Wood aging gave its share in it, also its fruitiness, apple, peach, lemon, some berries; quite complex. Medium in body with a long, sour and tart apple finish. Reminded me of Basque ciders, just more mature and rounded. A rich, nice fruity Lambic - calming, slowly enjoyed brew.

Pours clear orange amber with flat head. Aroma of apple, green grapes, bretta, grass, elderflower. Taste is gently tarty with a lot of fruit sweetness before a funky and tarty finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.
