Mesjasz (705) - Lodz, POLAND - MAR 14, 2016
UPDATED: APR 15, 2016 2011 Vintage. Hazy orange color, small white head. Aroma of barnyard, citrus, funk, orange zest, leather, very intense and nice. Taste is medium sour, very dry but nicely balanced. Flavor of lemon, grapes skin, sour gooseberries, red currant, leather, and earthy note. Very nice mouthfeel, beer is quite bodied, oily and smooth texture. Great Vintage. 2013 and 2015 are also very tasty.

Megablend 2015, always nice to find a geuze in my travels. Has ever so modest head and a great foggy peach body with just a hint of carbonation. Aroma of must, hay, lemon-soaked shoe leather, rotting orange juice - in other words, an awesome geuze smell. Taste is absolutely perfect for a geuze - lots of citrus balanced out by earthy notes, and the mouthfeel is perfection. Lite and dry on the mouth, crisp carbonation dancing - yeah, I said it, dancing! All frilly and that I tells ya, this is really good stuff. One of those rare beers worth travelling the world to find.
