3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 375 ml bottle with a 2013 date on the neck.
Aroma is somewhat malty with some red apple and stone fruit esters. Some light acidity and a bit of citrus. Not much funky character.
Pours a slightly hazy, pale gold with a huge, fairly thick white head that slowly recedes. The head on this is much more like an average beer than a geuze. Fairly high lacing and faint legs.
Flavor is moderately tart but also somewhat sweet. Some red apple and stone fruit notes. Light oak notes with some faint barnyard funk. Some light bitterness and a hints of mineral qualities. Light malt notes.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, this is one of the more disappointing geuzes that I have had. No complexity, too sweet and estery. No real funk to speak of.

Bottle. Dark yellow body with a small white head. Lactic aroma with wood, medicinal barnyard taste with fruit and bread. Decent sour finish. Taste is a little off, other than that a nice beer.
