A combo triple and geuze. I don't care for this much but my wife likes it so it must be good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
25.4 oz. bottle, labeled “08/06/16,” which I interpret as a best by date indicating that it was bottled on June 8, 2014. The label was on a nice, solid, artificial cork. Pours a hazy deep gold with a large amount of thick, cream-colored to off-white head. Moderate effervescence. Tart, honeyed, mineral, yeasty aroma. Scents of green apples and honey. Very good smell. Dry, tart, honeyed, mineral flavor. Tastes a bit like a tarter version of an old-fashioned honey candy. Lemon juice and lemon peel elements. Perhaps a bit sour and a touch funky but mostly tart. Bitter, almost umami finish. Light to moderately dry aftertaste. Light to medium body. Aqueous in the palate. Surprisingly light for a 7% ABV beer. Starts quite strong, especially in terms of aroma. Ends somewhat disappointingly and boringly. Not as flavorful as it should be. Still, I enjoy it, and it’s quite drinkable for the style.

Older bottle(15/05/15), Deep golden color with a off-white head and an orange glance.nose: Malts, grain, unfresh, all in the back with a good try some apples. not appealing nose. Taste: Grain, very malty with a sour yeasty underground. Fruity, apples bitter sour finish. Long lasting. Very smooth , almost a creamy touch, bit still a sparkling touch. For sure not the common brew, but had expected more. Somehow feels the aging has done bad to it. From the freshness of the geuze is hardly any legt, well the vicaris has been lost in translation.

Draft... Pours mostly clear and deeply golden with a small, frothy, white head. The aroma furnishes stone fruits and a mild note of very funky cheese. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Tastes a lot like a tripel blended with a lambic - lightly sweet, tart, mildly bitter, fruity and bold. Finishes tangy and lightly bitter with minerals.
