This geuze is absurd. First, it reminds me a ton of Girardin Black Label but is better in every way.

A - It pours super hazy bright yellowish orange with a healthy, thick, poofy white head that has crazy lacing and retention. This beer is from 2003!!! The best word to describe this beer is BRIGHT. The colors of it in the glass are almost neon and flavors explode out of the vessel.

N- You can smell of its nuances from a few feet away. There is no horse blanket, or funkiness to me. Instead there is ultra fresh grapefruit rind, curacao, blood orange, and white pepper in the nose. Super fresh, citrusy, and tart. The other times I've had this, I get lots of lavender, hibiscus, fresh cut flowers, lots of white peppery Brett, curacao, grapefruit peel, sweat.

T - Fairly sour, soft, not astringent or overpowering. It is very refined and complements the citrus flavors with an almost lemon/lime thirst quenching character. It is so spectacular that you really don’t want to sit down and write down what you thought about it. You just want to savor it and thank Jesus that such a fantastic creation exists on this planet.

P- Riveting carbonation at times can detract from the soft sourness and citrus complexity.
