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.

Man I love the gueuze. This isn’t as tart as some that I’ve had, but this is still near mind blowing. The aroma was perfect. Strong funk, wet blanket and vinegar. This beer smells like wet dog/horse which is a good thing. Pour was a nice light gold with a 2 finger off white head. Taste was nice and sour. Not as full as some of this style that I’ve had, but still awesome. Funk, wood, grapefruit and strong acidity. Nice carbonation and very citrusy/grapefruity aftertaste. IMO not as good as Cantillion but close.

Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Clear orange body with almost no head. Sour nose with some citrus. Very tart. Can barely detect a few fruits here. Texture is quite nice, as it really envelops the tongue. I can appreciate the style more - but still have an emperor wears no clothes feeling about lambics...

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2008
Pours a hazy golden color with a large head. Aroma of wood, funk, citrus. The most woody beer I’ve ever had, not in a good way. A little sweet, a whole lot of sour and tart. Ugh.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2008 375 ml bottle mail ordered from Liquor Max in Loveland, CO. Bottled 30 Nov 2006. Pour is hazy orange golden with a big fluffy white head and audible carbonation. Aroma of tart, sour, funk, barnyard and some sweet citrus fruit. Really beautiful nose, stunning. Taste is initially sweet rounded sourness, transitioning to a funky, woody, earthy tart, dry slightly bitter finish. Orange, lemon and pineapple tart sweetness is also present. The taste is both dry and mouth watering at the same time. Hard to explain, but really works great. This was a really good one, a joy.

light sour lemon, apple, pear, apricot. Somewhere in the finish there is actually this touch of marshmallow, which doesm’t make sense given the style and the other flavors, but it works quite well. The flavor kinda disappears after the initial burst on the tip of the tongue. Sure there’s a little wood here and there, but it’s mostly a rather simple beer. Certainly enjoyable, but just doesn’t have a ton of depth.

bottle at delirium. Poured hazy gold with white head. Nice aroma of sourness and wood. Flavor is sour and acidic, but not overpowering. Nice tart dryness at the end. Wonderful beer.

This Oude Geuze is not a stomach-killer like some other geuzes but indeed a sweet revenge after your meal on dishes with too much sugar.

doublebock (552) - California, USA - APR 12, 2008
Pours a hazy golden orange with white foam. Champagne-like woody aroma with a bit of banana. Extremely carbonated. Very tart followed by oaky cork mouthful on the side of the tongue.

Gusgus (235) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2008
(Oct 19, 1999) 1998 Bottle @ Kuminator, Antwerpen. Amazing bouquet of virtually every acid you can imagine. Really nice effervescence. Everything a gueuze should be. Perfectly balanced.

BonVoeux (40) - Beveren-Leie, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2008
Yesterday @ het Anker, Zele. Bottle, 37,5 cl. Hazy orange color, white head. Sour aroma fruity, yeast. Flavour good sourness, malts, perfect in good balance, fruity, and bitter end. Very good gueuze.
