A very, very lactic gueuze, though not bracingly sour by any means. More like a spoonful of fresh Greek yogurt. Hints of lemon zest, a tinge of ye olde blanket, and, regrettably, a touch skunky. But still very solid.

Brewing season 2010-2011.
Aroma: Funky, tart, yeast. Taste: Nice funky sourness, yeast is present in a good way. Overall a really good geuze, but a little to over carbonated for me.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2014 250ml bottle from Belgian eshop, Vintage 2009-2010
Slightly hazy orange color, very very little carbonation, just barely get a 1-2mm head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a bit subdued because of the lack of carbonation, I can sense fruity and funky aromas, some caramel too with some maltiness. Taste is sweetish, with some herbal qualities, the sourness and funkiness are very subtle... Some tartness in the finish but sweetness is too much for the style(and the age) of this brew. Some herbal hoppy notes in the finish too. Medium boded and very drinkable but not what I expected. This one I would give it a total score of 3.7 but I’ll leave it as is for the 2010-2011 vintage...
250ml bottle from Belgian eshop, Vintage 2010-2011
Slightly hazy with some yeast floaties and big white head. OMG the head retention is too good to be true! Aroma is much more funky and the brett smells amazing. Very barnyard-y aroma, notes of lemon and not much sourness. Taste starts with nice acidity complemented by a touch of earthy bitterness and some amazing sweet fruitiness. Some wood too. Long dry finish, not too tart. High carbonation, medium bodied.
I guess as I got back in time with the Geuze of Brouwerij F. Boon it get’s even better...

azy golden colour, white head, sediment in the bottle. Smells of citrus and wood. Tart apples as well. I also notice very subtle vanilla notes and some basement aromas. Medium bitter and - of course - quite sour, but not too much.
