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.

Bottle from 2008. Pour is hazy golden yellow with a medium white head that fades rather quickly. Aroma and flavor of tart green apples, belgian yeast, wheat malt, pale malt, and slight spice. Finish is sour and spicy.

Blind tasting of Gueuzes with the following:

3 F Gueuze, Cantillon Gueuze, Girardin Black Label & Tilquin all 2013 and around 8-14 months old.

A – Second darkest one after Girardin, a bit cloudy copper-orange with a thick white head.

S – Funky, lemons, very earthy, barnyard, hay, and floral, very refreshing smell but with a "heavy" funky touch to it.

T – The most complex of the bunch by far, also the strongest tasting, loaded with barnyard upfront, which turns into some hay earthy component and some grapefruit lemony refreshing touch on the end, it truly changes taste in a very remarkable way from start to finish.

M – A bit more full bodied and creamier than Cantillon & Tilquin, perfect for a gueuze.

O – This was the best of the bunch, mostly because it had the most barnyard and most complexity.

Bottle @ home. Nose is tart and lemon. And yes, barnyard. Pour us fairly cloudy with a large white head that dissipates but leaves a small later of bubbles. Taste is mostly fruit, lemon. Only slightly acidic. Doesn’t kill your chest. Very refreshing.

Champagne like pour. Fizzy with a decent white head. Grass, pine, apple, orange peel. Very tart and deep. Top stuff.

2010, 375ml bottle. Clear orangey gold with quickly dissipating white head. Nose is funky, barnyard, minerally. Tastes of barnyard funk, sour fruit, minerally. Dry finish. Quite effervescent. Wonderful beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

375 10/13 bottle. Come on. This is what we’re in it for. A classic example of the style through and through. I could say something about how it looks, how it smells, or how it tastes, but what would I be adding? If you like sour beers you want this -- badly -- and if you don’t you probably should try this and come to Jesus. Merry effing Xmas btw.

Blonde, mousse peu persistante. Pas un expert en sour/gueuze, mais le côté sour n’est pas aussi agressif que sur les autres déjà goûtées. Plutôt balancée, fruitée. Levures. En bouche pareil plutôt fruitée, bien sûr acide mais balancée sur la longueur (pas un coup d’acidité trop agressif), pleine en bouche avec un côté pain. Avec levures bien présentes. Petite amertume donnant de la rondeur. J’en ai pas goûté beaucoup et peu connaisseur, mais bien apprécié cette Gueuze.
