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.

Beergaard (187) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2015
Tart and funky but still so drinkable and refreshing. This is simply just the epitome of a great geuze. Complex if you want it to be - easily drinkable if you want it to be. 3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze is your bitch.

Mjp12 (688) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Light funk and slight oak notes on the aroma, lively carbonation on the tongue, good sour finish. A grea lambic

SarkyNorthener (2819) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle from Cotteridge wines. Slightly hazy golden beer with small head. Aroma of funk, citrus and some oak. Taste is funk, cheese, citrus, yeast and a moderate amount of dry sourness. Lovely carbonation on the tongue and a zing. Excellent, world class.

BiiruBierBeer (500) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Smell is heavy oak and brett. Not necessarily bad, but weird. Taste is very gueuzey with super heavy brett and oak notes. Only mild sourness. Medium to high carbonation, medium body, and some foam.

guiroul33 (222) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle 37,5cl from Bierhalle de Coninck, @ home. Predominence of green apple, a bit champagne-alike with a touch of acidity. I am not yet a specialist of this style but it may be the best gueuze Iíve had so far.

jahshuwuh (483) - USA - MAY 2, 2015
A medium dark spritzy copper color with plenty of fluffy white head that sticks around. Smells of funky sour fruit, vanilla, apple, cranberry, pear, juicy fruit, perm, barnyard, wheat. Taste is a medium funky sour burst, apple, pear, that fades with a fair amount of sweet vanilla tones and oak, cheesey hops. Fairly dry finish, not as much carbonation as expected. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nogva (46) - NORWAY - APR 28, 2015
375ml bottle from 10-2013. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin but creamy white head. Complex floral aroma of unripe apples, lambic yeast, sour candy and hay. I could spend a whole day smelling this. Light body, slick feel fizzy carbonation. Taste is super tart and dry with citrus (most prominent: grapefruit and lime), herbs, grass, sharp cheese and even some vanilla. Long lasting astringent finish. Delicious geuze that Iíll definitely want to drink more of!

Bottle. Pours mostly cloudy muddy orange with nice white head. Nose is sour apple and sourdough bread. Taste adds some vinegar. Dry aftertaste.
