(transl.) In big oak casks, more than 100 years of age, lambic ripens. Specially for you, the best of lambics have been selected, blended, and bottled. By refermentation in the bottle Millennium was created, the superior geuze! Geuze Millennium has been bottled in the autumn of 1998. It contains only wheat, malt and hops. Not pasteurised and spontaneously refermented in the bottle.

skortila (5341) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2016
Bottled. 15cl sample. Many thanks to PotjeBier. :-) The aroma has overripe apples, wood, soft horseblankets and funk, little citrus, hint of cork. Bit hazy, orange coloured epicness with a medium sized, off-white and even lasting head. The taste is above average sour from mostly citric acids and some lactics. Soft and smooth overall. Well preserved beer. A joy to be able to taste this gem.

PotjeBier (2747) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2016
This bottle has been sitting in my closet for over 16 years, so it was about time...As promised long ago, shared with de Rooie Dop crew (NoiZe, Caesar & Skortila) & Bierkonijn. Cork comes out easily with a good pop. Pour a hazy golden yellow color. As good as white head, firm, a bit frothy. Delicate geuze aroma’s: sourness, ripe apples, wood, a hint of sweetness even, light cork and fortunately not much brett funkiness. Flavor is moderate to full sour, but soft, not sharp at all. Light to medium bodied. Long finish, sourness remains, along with some wood. Like I expected, nothing but a good, nice tasting geuze.

caesar (6685) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2016
Bottle thx to Potjebier, small sample. Slight hazy golden color, medium frothy head. Aroma of mellowed horseblanket and barnyard, soft funky notes, bit cork, soft aging notes. We put a fresh 3F oude geuze next to it, which had far more green and leafy hops in the nose and was sharper and more sour in taste. Millennium was soft in flavor, smooth sourness, slight citric and slight lactic. Well balanced, and kept good for more than 16 years. Ofc extra points for lambic rarity. Thx to Potjebier for this whale!

ctipping (1425) - Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2015
750 mL bottle. Big head. Deep orange. Smells oxidized. Citrus. Deep oakiness. Oxidization kinda overpowers, though. Tastes brighter. Lemon. Some orange. Oxidation behind it. Oak. A little cardboard. High carbonation. Swirling helps. Oxidation is tough to get past, but it’s nice.

ippopotamo36 (1771) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 28, 2015
At the multi-national tasting held in Rome-Italy on 29/08/2015 (Jow, Mortlach, ippopotamo36 and Marco). an epic sharing (bottle) of Mortlach, many thanks man! Pours golden dark cloudy color, quite bright with a big and persistent white foamy head. Nose: a bit of a vinegar (sadly), dusty, wild yeast, cheesy. Mouth: very fruity, blast of sourness, flat body. This epic beer is getting a bit too old and in descending phase, bummer!
