COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2008 Rerate (4-15-08 and several lambics/gueuzes later):
375ml, Hazy orange, still spritzy. Very good, very traditional gueuze. Well, more bitter than most, in the cherry-pit feeling sort of way (not that there’s anything like cherries in the flavor, does this make sense to anybody else? much like Hanssens Kriek in this way). Also a little more acidic than a lot of other ones. Still juicy. Medium bodied but feels lighter than it is because of the carbonation. Surprisingly I’m giving it the same rating as the first time I had this. Expensive (especially for this half bottle), but very very good.

11-18-06: 750ml, My first gueuze/lambic and going with the Ohio State - Michigan game(we won). First, I love the bottle and label, very appropriate. Sour green apples and lemon juice. Very juicy, bubbly, and fun.

entropy1049 (40) - Oxford, Iowa, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Pours hazy dark amber with a nice thick off white head. Smell is tangy pine and citrus. Oak and lime taste with HUGE dryness; nicely carbonated. Wow, really picking up on some things I didn’t the first time I tried this one...After taste is as good as the first taste... really some nice fruitiness here. Absolutely delicious!

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2008 (Bottle, 22 Jan 2004 vintage) Pours a lightly cloudy orange body with a medium-sized white head. Aroma of white grapes, grapefruit peel, earthiness, and chardonnay grapes. Flavor of grape tartiness that just makes the mouth salivate. Dry finish. Excellent gueuze! (Bottle, 1999 Vintage) Pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head. Nose is sweet, tart, and full of life. The taste is tart, apples, and grapes with a well balanced acidic finish. Incredible Gueuze!
