2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden with no head. Aromas of feijoa, but not nearly as overt as the Freckled Frog. You ca also smell golden syrup, hay and banana passionfruit skins.
Tastes acid, sour, diacetyl butteriness and green unripe grapes. Has aging potential aplenty and it needs it, boy howdy. A beer before its time but I wonder how i would stand up to agin with such low alcohol.
This was originally Golden Goose that has been operating on a sort of solera system inside an old Bourbon barrel.

Bottle.Hazy amber golden with a fizzy lively head that rapidly collapses. Sour feijoa fruit aroma, slightly musty. Brilliant sour feijoa fruit flavour that strongly reminds me of when I crunch fresh passionfruit seeds beween my teeth. Finish is tart, dry, and peppery. Awesome!

I love this beer. Extremely refreshing gueuze and totally suited to the feijoa fruiting. Nose is musty with feijoa dominant, flavour is bitingly acidic, with more feijoa, lemons, wintergreen, and grass. Palate slightly thin, but satisfying. I could drink this all day, in the sun.

Pours cloudy golden. Aromas of feijoa, that’s about it. Flavour is quite sour, feijoa dominates the flavour. Dry finishing. A good Geuze.

Bottle at the inn. Pours a murky greyish yellow with a small whitre head. Sweet with a moderate acidity and a slight bitterness. Sour aromas of resin, leather and citrus fruits. Also feijoa, sour apples and wood. Hint of mint. Medium bodied. Slick mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Short dry finish with lingereing hints of feijoa. Good.
