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.

Pale yellow with a quickly disappearing head. Lemon peel, other citrus fruit but also wood and earthen notes. Very balanced and not as sour as the lesser geuzes, top notch. Medium body, lively, long finish.

Martin243 (741) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
37.5 ml bottle at home. Served in a Hoegaarden shaker. Pale yellow haze with a lively white head that soon calms down to a white skim. Very lively carbonation. Sweaty cheesy aroma. Dry, acidic, tart apple, young hard cheese, yeast and pickled lemon flavour. Light body thin texture, fizzy. Astringent finish. Yapped around my taste buds like the beer equivalent of an overwrought Jack Russell. Have a go!

Nicht ganz so ein Knaller wie zuletzt Cantillon, aber weiterhin große. Würzig, mit schön viel Frucht und ein wenig Buttersäure, jedoch wird im Geschmack die Säure etwas überdreht, was beinahe in Richtung Essig geht. Klasse Piwo mit kleinen Schwächen.

McTapps (3560) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a hazy, cloudy amber colour with medium body and small head. Wonderful sour aroma of berries, mild vinegar and green nuts. Taste of very sour unripe berries. gooseberries, leaves, vinegar. Sour finish. Little bit too unbalanced in the sourness but still a great lambic.

Oak in the aroma, Champaign, farm house. Minimal head, Crystal clear! Extra Sharp, slight acetone though barely noticeable. Lovely Sharp fruityness. Very thin and prickly on the tongue. A very enjoyable beer.

Sampled at 4 Hands tasting. Very hazy orange gold. An off white layer. A funky fruity is very nice. Fizzy. Wild notes reign here. There is also soft fruit and paler malts. Not complex as expected but very nice.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Serving: 750 ml. bottle. It pours a hazy, light amber-orange with a large white head. The nose is full of barnyard funk with a little stone fruit thrown in. Light lemon and pepper up front followed by straw and horse blanket notes. Bracingly sour on the back end with a very dry finish. Light on the tongue with abundant carbonation. Delightful.
