Bottle at a Chriso tasting, London - thanks to Bruce for this bottle. Pours hazy gold with a frothy, white head. Big tangy aroma, some peach. Medium sweet flavor, fairly sweaty and funky, with a bit of overripe orange. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Medium sweet finish with some rindy citrus bitterness, mellow sourness, sweat, funk, soft pale malts. Very nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Medium airy off white creamy head, changes into an half open lacing on top of a hazy amber orange colored beer.
The smell is awesome, super smooth balanced, excists of four things: the typical geuze smell with wood, rubber (both also typical Lambic) and smoke.
The taste is so smooth so soft and well balanced: yeast, barn, lactic sour, wood, white wine wood, some smoke, some older malts and herbs, hint of honey, some light soft and smooth fruit tones, light bitter, some smooth spicy notes, but overall a very very nice geuze taste which is soooo smooth!
Aftertaste is short: some grass, malts, light sour, light bitter and nice wood tones.
Low carbo, soft almost silky mouthfeel, medium to full body and a creamy texture.
Sour ale? This is a Lambic Geuze and this is not just a simple one.
Delicious over all!
Dont wanna write too much, I am Enjoying (capital E) a good beer!

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very hazy amber pour with a huge khaki head. Smoke and bandaid notes up front. A definite oak, some light tartness, grassy funk, a touch of earth, and some mild malt sweetness. The combination of smoke, bandaids, lemon, and oak on the flavor is not appealing. Some mild earthy funk, a bit of grass, and some hints of fruit. Really weird and unpleasant.
