3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
hazy yellow, offwhite head lasts not very long
smells sourish-sweetish ,a bit yeasty,some hops
tasts sourish-sweetish,but the sourness is not so strong and the sweetness not strong too,so it seems me milder than other geuzes, tasts of some kitchen herbs too, for example dried celleri-leawes ,some citrus
aftertaste some sourness, bitterness and herbs
gas not that champagne-like hint of other geuzes
a smooth geuze, would be good for geuze beginners, for not bee too astonished like by other geuzes

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Very hazy and citric sour aroma. Tart and a nice balance of sourness on the palate. The carbonation creates a rather dry and clean finish. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a cloudy honey color with a 1 inch cream colored head that never disapeared. Aroma was earthy with light fruit and lemons. Nice carbonation. Acidic sourness at first, then very sweet. Flavors of brett funk apple and lemon flavors. Sweeter than I expected.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 750 ml bottle that cost $8.59 at the Northcoast Coop in Eureka, CA this poured a cloudy gold with fat white head and thick lacing. Nose is citrus and ripe fruit. Lively mouthfeel and a lot of rich sour fruit flavors and a dry finish. Very nice brew.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Dark cloudy goldenrod with a humungous off-white head, more than 4 fingers tall. Excellent retention and absurd chunks of lacing. Aroma is mostly citrus peel and lemony sour with an orangey sweetness to it. Huge citric acid. Flavor is not nearly as sour as the aroma. Some of the lemony tartness is definitely still there, but bretty funk is at least even with sourness/acidity in the overall profile. Earthy and saison-like at times. Nice dry finish. Kind of like a part-gueuze part-Orval blend. Interesting and tasty, could be a good intro-to-sours beer.
