Bottle from Deconinck. 2019 edition. Hazy bright orange, stable, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of unripe orange, mandarin zest, plum, wet straw, hay, leather, horseblanket, damp cellar, old wood, wet flowers, vague manure. Taste has sour mandarin, gooseberry, plum & green apple, edge of lemon acid, bit lactic; funky cheese; hay, straw & leather with a soft bittering effect kick in. 'Wet' grassy hops in the finish, yeasty & earthy, lingering woody tannins, funky fruit, lemon & lactic acid. Medium body, slick/oily texture, fizzy carbonation. A 'deluxe' Geuze with incredible richness.
Except for a hint overcarbed this is really damn good. Perfectly balanced with pleasant fairly low acidity and suiting funk. Nice and lovely with the amazing seafood!

Bottle, 2018 edition. A lot of pressure in the bottle, foam gushing out. Color: Hazy orange amber, large but fast disappearing off-white head. Aroma: Wheat malt, funky, fruity, tart. Taste: Very smooth mouthfeel, nicely balanced moderate to over moderate tart and sweet, fruity notes of white grape and green apples, grapeskin and apple peel, lemon hints. Subtle peach hints. Wet hay. Oak wood. Quite funky, farmyard like, and quite some tannins, dry mouthfeel. Old hop, light to moderate bitterness. Wheat malt background. Very dry finish. Nice complexity. Medium body, low carbonation. Gooikoorts is on it's best after 7 years cellar, according to the label. I can believe that, but it's already great after 2 years.
