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.

darkguardian (730) - Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2009
22oz bottle. Pours cloudy yellow, darker in color than I expected. Nose is incredible barnyard, acid lemon, urine and horseblanket. Flavor is sour but not terribly so. Complex with an almost sulfurlike aftertase like tobacco or burnt coffee. Lingering sour finish. Dry but not near as dry as Cantillion. Oaky and woody in the middle. Really great and complex and gets more so as it warms. 250th rate.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2009
37,7 cl bottle @ De Kelk, Bruges. Straw-colured, a bit hazy and sparkling beer with a thin white head. Some lace remains in the glass til the end. The aroma is acidic and oaky. The aromas has incredible complexity, especially in the finish that has fresh tobacco or even coffee aromas. I also found rhubarb and grass. The flavor is acidic, tart sour fruity and still somehow mellow at the same time. The palate is crispy, tart and soft: words that just don´t belong together but in this case they do. The finish is really something to remember. One of the greatest beers that I´ve ever had.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2009
750ml bottle dated 02/2007. I’ve been waiting to give this one a shot, hope its funky. beautiful orange color with a good head at first, then scarce bubbles. The smell is real nice, candy, fruit, peaches, a little basement. Nice and sour, juicy like apples and pears. It feels like very tiny bubbles in my mouth but not very many of them.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - JAN 25, 2009
12.7 oz. bottle, bottled Nov. 30, 2005. Pours a clear golden orange with a big fizzy white head, moderate retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is musty and funky. I have no vocabulary to really describe this style at all, so that’s as good as it will ever get, however I do like it a lot. Flavor is tart and sharp, with some more funk and must. A dry and fairly abrupt finish, which surprised me. Very drinkable sipper, and overall a little less intense than others I’ve tried in this style, but good stuff just the same.

Bottle, pours bright yellow with a tall white head. Smells sour and funky. Flavors are very sour, more so than any other I have had. Ends with a lingering dry sour note. This is good.

grandgenie (259) - val-des-monts, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2009
Dégusté le 12 mars 2007 avec french tickler. Drank in a stem glass. Poor a couldy caramel color with a small off-white head. Aromas of crab apples, my oid humid basement... i can honestly say that it smells like my freakin’ gym bag. This has to be the ultimate gueuze. Ultimate sourness, acid beyons beleife.... Not to drink ifyou have bad ulcers, unless you have a roll of tums ready. Taste is basically the same as the aromas added cranberiies.

Couldn’t find anyone who would share it with me (my wife for sure wouldn’t), so I finally opened it. Aroma of sour and tart and wood. Taste is of apple. Lots of earthly flavors mixed in. Excellent.

Bottle from Capones. Vintage 2005. Pours out a cloudy light golden/straw color with a moderate slightly off white head. Sour, vinous aroma with some tart fruits. Taste is complex and well balanced sour funkiness goes with some tart apple, citrus and some earthy notes. Well done.
