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: MAR 12, 2007 Damn good geuze...I was in belgium for about around 4 nights and this was the best I had. Looks gold and has a big white head. Aroma is perhaps a little more balanced and tame than most highly rated geuze...lots of tart fruit, but not too much funk. Flavor is also quite mild...sure it is very sour...but there are some nice floral and fruit notes...and it is very well balanced. Mouthfeel was quite dry and carbonated.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2006
RBSG 2006, Grand Tasting. Cloudy copper with a white head. Sour fruits/cherry and brett in the nose. Very very tart, citric and sour with cherry in there. Thin body with a very spritzy, dry mouthfeel - totally dried out the lining of my mouth. Interesting stuff, but not really my thing.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2006
Bottles sampled with Beerded-one. Pours hazy orange\golden with a gigantic off-white head. Aroma of citrus, fermented fruit, sourness, oak, and yeast. The flavor is carbonated, yeast, fermented fruit, sour, citrus, and oak. Good body, decent brew for a style i don’t care for.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2006
Hazy peach-golden with a large white head. To me the aroma is the most evocative feature of this celebrated beer, its musty, dusty, yeasty, cobwebby scent redolent of brasseries artisanales hidden in grimy backwaters of la Belge profonde where the uneven brick floors have soaked up decades of spilt fruits and lambics. Taste combines tartness with grapefruit bitterness to make a memorable drinking experience.

Eructoblaster (2949) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle. Nice hazy dark gold body with average carbonation and a thin but lasting white foamy head. Typical Gueuze sour aroma that hides the alcohol very well. Very sharp sour taste with oaky and herbal hints. Ends with a long and robust sour, dry finish. Excellent example of the Gueuze style.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 8, 2006
Bottle. Rating #3000. Hoo ra. Pops with a light fizz, very light carbonation, near unblended... The color is golden orange. The nose is beautiful; a multifacetted tart/sweet funky dream. Lots of fruit and sweet malts; clashing tart, sour, funk, whoa. The flavor is...damn, near perfect. A light sweet malt is up at bat first followed by the growing tartness that peaks with a light floral and tickling mouthfeel. Finishes balanced and woody. Awesome geuze.

ross (2073) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2006
2004 bottle. My first from this brewery, and much thanks to Tom (oldgrowth) I was able to try this fantastic brew. Pours out a cloudy orange color, not much carbonation. Sweet citrus in the nose, and a nice upfront sourness on the first taste. As that fades it leaves way to oakey flavors, wood, and the ever present sourness. Awesome. Probably the best geuze ive had to date, glad I have another bottle of this, to last me for a while.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden colour with a big white head. Aroma of barnyard with some citrus hints. Sweet malty flavor with nice sourness and hints of citrus. Sweet malty finish.
