Blend of 1, 2, and 3 year old lambics.
A true Geuze - a blend of 1, 2, and 3 year-old lambic, unfiltered and unpasteurized, and aged in the bottle for at least a year after blending. Refermentation in the bottle gives this Geuze its famous champagne-like spritziness. The lambic that goes into it is brewed only with 60% barley malt, 40% unmalted wheat, aged hops, and water, spontaneously fermented by wild yeasts, and matured in oak casks.

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Clear, nearly still gold body with a rich, creamy and frothy white head. Smells very acidic and mineral-like, with apple, orange, brett, lemon, coriander, pear, oak, and rubbing alcohol notes. The flavor is very oak-y and spicy, with super strong lemon notes throughout. Hints of orange, apple, clementine, nectarine, slat and dill. The finish is bright and fruity, clean and crisp. This is much different than most Gueuze beers, and in a good way. This is insight into the new world of wild yeast brewing. Semi-sweet, but still bretty and dry. Damn good.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2008
[bottle] Potent aroma, very funky and acidic. Pours hazy yellow with a very quickly diminishing white head. Flavors are very acidic and almost bitter. Loads of sour bacteria. Very complex finish...lingers on for quite a while. Saturating.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2008
A hazy golden colored beer, with a small beige head, with big bubbles. It disappears quickly. The aroma is very sour and complex. A bit vineger. Spicey tones, grapes and melon. The taste of strong sour apple. It is dry with touches of wood. The after taste is nice sour, with a bitter finish.

BOLTZ7555 (2985) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Aroma is tart Granny Smith, cherry skin, lemon and funk. Appearance is golden orange and is truly a headless horseman. Flavor is extremely soured; grapefruit, orange peel, and lemon zest. Scratches the back of the throat. Palate seems a bit thin.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Bottle dated Nov. 30, 2005 from Novare Res, Portland, ME, sampled on 6/6/08. Cloudy gold body, little head. A burnt aroma, toasted pumpkin seeds, light funk, and dust. Flavor has a noticeable bitterness of citrus rind, a subdued sour note creates a twinge in the back of the cheeks. A touch of woodiness. Light on the palate.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2008
bottle on january 17, 2006: pours a thick cloudy loking orange caramel colour little to almost no head, just a lingering white lilne on the edge of the glassleaves an oily lacing. aroma i s suttle at first then burst into some fresh orange orchard, flowery sweetness, honey, hopswarms up and the funky sout tart starts to creep in. other fruits start to arrive like apricot, fresh melon, tart apple skin. simply amazing and complex. the flaovur is amazing and silky, flavours come in burst with honey fresh flowers, tart fruits, fresh apricot or peaches, again some fresh melon like the nose the finishes comes along with a nice tartness that ends up a litlle funky and dry. this a near perfect beer in every way. i cant believe it took me so long to try it.
