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.

Floback (541) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Pours golden orange with a white 1 inch head. Nice, sticky lacing. Nose is lemon zest, orange, lawn clippings, and yeast. High carbonation, medium body and cloying mouth feel. Tastes are citrus, fresh yeast, sour apple, tree bark. Crazy sour, just how I like it. Nice complexity and acidity. Another great Gueuze.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Nice lemony aroma. Good acidity, it has a very smooth flavor that is marred slightly by a shot of bitterness through the aftertaste. Not tremendously complex, but well made.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUN 5, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 375 ml corked bottle. A very unclear pale amber beer with a small and quite disappearing white head. The aroma is sour, yeasty and intense, with notes of lemon, wood and sour fruits. The flavour has a light to medium sweetness and a medium to high acidity, with quite light bitterness. Very fruity and citric. Medium body, lively carbonation, dry long finish with light bitetrness. Not the most extreme lambic, but at the same time more drinkable and at the same time refined and complex.

Enjoyit (3610) - Vadum, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2007
Hazy golden with a white head. A sour aroma of vinegar, horses and old apples. A nice sour flavor of granny smith apples, horses and stable. A dry and bitter finish.

Beer5000 (5123) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2011 375ml bottle@Kristiansand lambic festival. Hazy golden body with a creamy white head. Aroma is acid and sour grapefruit. Flavor is relatively mild acidulous compared to many other geuze. Still sour with a hint of citrus peel and malt! A nice treat and a good place to start for the lambic virgins.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - MAY 18, 2007
The pour is a hazy moderate golden with a nice white head. Aroma has notes of sosurness, earthiness, some slight vinigar, fruitiness, and barnyard. Flavor has a twang to it with a sweet and sour combination. In addition tastes of fruit and an earthiness are present. Slight astringincy at the finish with a touch of vinigar like acidicy.

thewolf (11555) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle. A hazy yellow without a head. Aroma is sour, but is still based on a malty sweet base, giving it a barn-like expression. Flavour begins with a yeasty sourness, then turns around with oak, caramel, and a round finish. The sourness lingers all along - a great example!

Bottle @ Copenhagen Øl Festival. Small fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Spar lacing. Clear golden color. Heavy acidic with notes of dust, barnyard, milky acidic, grain, fruit, berries and vinegar. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sour notes with light sweet flavor. Impressive dry and sour finish that lingers.
