375ml bottle, Vintage 2007. Pours hazy sunset orange with a quickly dissipating large-bubbled white head. Fruity tart green apple Belgian yeast profile. The sourness is very restrained. Drinkable, but not as complex as I had hoped.

AshtonMcCobb (3675) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - bright orange with a nice lacy head. Nose - apples, grapes, general geuze stuff going on. Taste - tangy orange, orange shred, light malt backdrop. Palate - close to medium bodied with a long dry tangy texture which follows through into the finish. A long lean finish, that just goes on and on. Overall - a lovely example of the style.

Ambro206 (272) - ITALY - MAY 3, 2015
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival: Una magnifica geuze. Titolo alcolico importante, equilibrato perfettamente con l’acidità. La birra si presenta nel bicchiere leggermente ambrata con poca schiuma. Al naso sentori di pompelmo, limone, pesca ed aceto. Acidità nella media, non invadente. Corpo medio, birra decisamente secca e beverina.
