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.

1999 bottle, sampled at RBSG 08. Pours a golden-amber. Aroma is sweet and sour, very fruity. Crisp, sour-sweet taste, citrus and other fruits. Light lingering sour sweetness. Very tasty and refreshing.

Cloudy appearance. Light-bodied. Apple, lemon, citrus, and floral notes form a wild, acidic sour for a tart, bitter, and sparkling finish.

750 ml bottle. This comes out a fizzy amber and you can pick out the sour aromas as soon as the cork comes off. Head is big and kind of soapy-looking. Closer inspection of the nose reveals a grassy, lemony, funky tartness. Flavor is funky and tart, but has lots of other stuff going on... apples and oak with a very dry finish.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Bottle shared by lithy at the Pre-Brewer’s Jam Tasting. Pours a dark yellow with a fizzy, off-white head that leaves light lace. Musty, earthy aroma with some spices. Nice sour that brings out that white grapes, apple, and hay flavor. Medium body. Sour throughout, but not overwhelming. Dry but expected. Very enjoyable.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Suttree’s 2008 Pre-Brewer’s Jam Tasting. Sample from a bottle shared by me. Bottled dated 02 Apr 2001. Pours a clear straw yellow with two healthy fingers of large bubbled just off-white head that holds its full body well as long as it isn’t disturbed. Aged oaky tartness in the aroma dusty and powerful acidity. The body is smooth with almost corky barnyard tastes and more fantastic acidity. Not wincingly sour, just potent and balanced acidity. Dry but lasting finish holds on to the back of the tongue nicely.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2008 A lot of flavors combined into a glass full of awesomeness. All the terms used to describe this stuff - metal, horse blanket, barnyard, dust, battery acid - don’t sound appetizing, but they combine to create a winner.

Mette (224) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2008
Denne er 99 udgaven. Uklar med et lille hvidt skum. Grapefrugt, stikkelsbær, eddike, dejlig sur og stikker lidt på tungen. Intet kulsyre. Dejlig og lækker.

Sample at J Gumbos Aug 2008 Indy tasting - Didn’t see the age, but was a 375ml so probably newer. Aroma is funky, horse blanket, oak and a touch of spice. I could keep my nose in there all day. Flavor starts off in the barn with hay, straw and horse followed by some sour grapes and grapefruit. Spice from the yeast shows up as well. Palate is tart and dry as well as tart and dry. Very nice stuff that I need to get a bottle for myself.

2001. pinkish hued cloudy gold with awesome lacing under a huge sudsy soapy head. black pepper, sour peach, brett, maybe even some banana notes in aroma. flavors of white grape, vinegar, acid, sour peach, brett, and a hint of the peppery spice from the aroma. nicely aged and mellowed. not sure if its the aging but i really like this one.
