Cork and cap bottle. Poured cloudy orange color with a minimal fizzy head that diminihed quickly with fair lacing. Heavy fruity and sour citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a dry texture. Heavy tart sour flavor with a medium bitter finish of long duration. This is a standout beer for a select few.

faroeviking (10289) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle. Hazy applejujice orangy colour with a short head. Sharp aroma of cherries and oak, which becomes very sout the more you smell to it. Flavour is very sour with citrus and sour apple, little burned wood with intens sour lemon and grape fruit, which turns in to a sharp dryness. Long sour aftertaste. For a pure lambic this kicks butt!!!!

bierkoning (10204) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2003 Aroma has sulphur, grass, citrus, apple and oak. The apple and oak I found in the taste is dominated by an overpowering sourness. Dry mouthfeel. For experienced beer drinkers only. Vintage 2002: geuze-lambic bio. Fairly light color. Overwhelming aroma of sulphur, ctrus, oak, honey and cheese. Harsh sulphury sourness. Citrus, oak vanilla and apple in the flavor. Some vinegar and hops. Delicious and very complex geuze. Young and a bit harsh, but will ease down and get even more complex in a few years. Great beer!
