0.375 l bottle with cork from Alko. Dark yellow/light amber colour with nice head, if not too cold. This is dry, as you would expect from oude geuze, but it has also that tannin or old oak wood taste. This won’t make your throat feel strange, it is much easier, but not sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Alko, Espoo. Pours cloudy bronze with a little head. The aroma features citrus, sour apple and spices, fairly sour and yeasty all in all. Taste is extremely crisp, fresh and sour - as this style should be. Apple is on the forefront in the tart, fruity and a bit earthy mix. Medium hoppiness. The palate is medium bodied, slick with a quite lively carbonation. A bit aggressive but very refreshing.
