joet (2129) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUN 5, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Golden with transient white foam, slightly hazy. Dried hay, earth, rustic aromas. Lemon and grapefruit. Soft acidity. Really opens up with increasing temperature. Very full aroma. Some woody character. Light astringency perhaps related to tannins. Dry, refreshing, drinkable. Finishes lightly sour. This is an amazing blend. In an evening of many other top notch beers, this was a great standout.

Edición de 2013. Color dorado con espuma blanca ligera. Aroma de brett. y madera muy equilibrados con toques de fruta verde. Cuerpo medio bajo, entra dulce y afrutada, acidez muy equilibrada y final seco. El regusto es duradero y conserva exactamente los mismos matices que se aprecian en el trago. Excelente.

Beer4000 (4395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
750 ml bottle purchased at Toer de geuze 2011 and tasted in 2014. Almost clear, lively carbonated body with a dense, medium sized off-white head. Aroma is refreshing acidic fruit/berries with a pleasant barnyard/funk level. Flavor is balanced acidic for a Geuze, fresh lemon/grapefruit acidic, a hint of vinegars, relatively dry and pleasant funky. Not super complex but a very fine and tasty Geuze that might develop more during the years to come

Deep copper Orange with a giant white head. Sour nose comes through while I am pouring. Light band aid notes with bubble gum in the nose. Tart flavor that has plenty of band aid and some light banana. Very nice supper to start the afternoon with.
