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.

Poured from bottle at fantasy football tasting. Yellow orange pour. Nose is funky citrus. Tastes of lovely tart lemons, grapefruit, wood, and white grapes. Perfect puckering finish. Need to get full bottle of this

One of my favorite gueuze. With a lot of complexity and less acid than a cantillon. Very smooth.

Botella.color ambar claro opaco. Espuma blanca de buena formacion, fina y chispeante. Jejeje. Aromas frutales, madera, sidra, masa de pan, compleja. En boca la textura es aceitosa, cremosa la carbonation viva. Acida en principio para pasar a un punto un dulce y final astringente, en boca muy compleja, presentes los aromas pero potenciados. Equilibrada a tope. Final astringente muy muy largo. Demasiadovirgen para decir algo mas de esto.... Birroteeeee

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2015 Des louverture , je tombe presque k.o. demoi. je suis quebecois et jai bu beaucoup de bieres avec levures sauvages, mais ce nest en rien comparable avec cette gueuze. le côté sauvage est tellement mature et complexe... en bouche un peu vinaigré mais tres sure, laisse la bouche completement seche. Un coté animal, cuir tellement complexe et.bien executé. cest frais, sa rapelle la.menthe.. je viens de faire mon entrée dans le monde des.gueuzes, de.maniere spectaculaire!

Arôme très fort de geuze. Très bonne acidité en bouche qui est très bien dosé. Une des meilleures geuze.
