Corked and caged 375ml bottle 2007, best by Sept 10, 2030.

Green bottle, like the Kriek. Boon laughs at the possibility of these beers being light struck, as I do. ;^)

Big pop, brisk pour, lots of foam that seems to be sticking around, hazy orange yellow colour. There's some lacing and the foam is still hanging in there. Now about a finger's worth.

The smell is pretty amazing. Lots of funk, lemon citrus, and VERY bitter. Some peppery spice in the nose as well. It's been a long time since my last Geuze.

First sip in and the lemon and funk hit my palate big time. A slight tartness goes hand in hand with a huge bitterness and a bit of a peppery note here and there. More sips in and more, thankfully, of the same. Wow, this is good. The alcohol is hidden very well so I can just sit back and relax with this fine tasting Geuze. Just what the proverbial doctor ordered.

Fairly light in body with loads of carbonation...lots of "tickling" on the back of the throat after every swallow. Nice mouthfeel, for sure, and very damn drinkable. Oh and the foam is still kicking it.


Hehe...there's not much I can say that's bad about this beer so I won't even attempt to try. This is hitting THE SPOT!

Last pour and the beer is now decidedly cloudy with just a wee bit of sediment from the bottom of the glass. I think this is a must try for the lovers of the style.
