A slightly hazy golden color with minimal white head. Smell is a stinky cheese, vinegar, juicy fruit, sour candy, sawdust. Taste is a medium sourness up front followed by old cheesy hops, a bit plastic, some apricot and pear, vinegar. Champagne like dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (4237) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 14, 2016
Cantillon Geuze 5% A beautiful looking brassy orange with a great aroma of tart earthy funk and pronounced grape+plum notes. It’s a 2015 vintage so a bit young but smells great.  Lovely soft body that delivers a fairly full mouthfeel. The taste is a touch acidic, some funk, lactic acid giving tart lemon or lime and some oak in the finish. Great stuff.

onceblind (6740) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2016
Deep golden under a thin white foamy cap. Amazing earthy sour aroma with earthy fruity funk, barrels, a bit of lacto, and white grape. Amazing flavor full of lacto wild yeast tones, a touch of sour acidity, earthy funky fruit, a touch of dust, and finishes a little peachy and appley. Really amazing geuze, tart, earthy funky, fruity, and very very unique and impeccable.

375ml bottle. Pours hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is acidic with lemon and vinegar, yeast, funky and rustic notes. Taste is similar, acidity is excellent and not too strong at all, citrus flavors, yeast again, light final bitter note. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
