3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
ivorywhite head leaves no lacing. orange blonde colour. aroma is pronounced lambic, horsefunk, malty, wood. taste is funky, citric acid, bit balsamic, solvent, boozy the finish is very wry which ruins it for me. medium body and carbonation. not too big a fan of this, i find the balance to be off. the vicaris geuze (with boon) was more to my liking. bottle 37,5 cl / 2012 version

Bottle @ Steve_0’s palace, courtesy of Armin. Thanks! A bit hazy, yellow, a touch orangish appearance with a white head. Fairly funky, cheesy nose. Cobwebs. A bit acetic. Sort of tastes like a Chow Mein / bready flavor. Lemony. Lightly sour. Really not a fan.

2012 bottle poured a clean golden color with a thin coating of white head that retained a ring on the glass. Aroma has 3 Fonteinen house character on the acidic side, light lemon, barrel wood, and a bit of the tripel sweet malt in the background. Mouth feel is much more full than a geuze and the carbonation low though it is not flat. Flavor is where the real head spin starts when you are greeted by the 11% abv. Sweet tripel malts are put against the sharp acidity with some yeasty funk layered in. The flavor is so far from what the nose had led on. This is oddly crushing in strength but then the acidity sets in with big earthy notes. I guess this is the barley wine of geuze.
