4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375ml corked and caged bottle from Jan 2009.
Okay, I put it in the fridge for about an hour and when I removed the cage, the cork shot out like a rocket. Thankfully, I didn’t lose much of the beer.
It pours a huge head of foam..I can see a cloudy straw yellow brew underneath. As the foam shrinks, it leaves some nice lacing behind.
The smell is both very sour and a bit bitter. Lots of apple like tartness dominate but there’s also a barnyard kind of smell there. It smells so good. I wonder if the taste can match it.
Green apple tartness is up front, slight hint of funk, a bit of hop bitterness, more sourness...this is a grand brew to drink if you really dig sours. I’m smacking my mouth drinking this. I just don’t want the sourness of this brew to leave my palate!
On the low end of medium bodied with a lively level of carbonation, the mouthfeel is just fine.
This IS one hell of a Geuze! De Cam beers are awesome!
