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.

BeergeekKorea (42) - SOUTH KOREA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle 375mL. Typical hazy orange colour and little head. Beautiful strong sour aroma of the yeasts and so leathery. Runs deep sour and puckery tastes with subtle that of hay, balanced. Finishes a lot of complex skunky flavour above the ABV amusing in mouth.

Bottle datum 17/10/2013. Diep zurig cremig rood donker aroma. Klein bubbelachtig (cava achtig) schuimkraag dat snel weg trekt, mooi helder. Diep warme felle zuurtegraad aanwezig. Heerlijk citrus achtig, vettige dikke smaak in de afdronk maar ook droog.

Towey1989 (607) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber colour with a thick fizzy white head. Aroma of green apple, barnyard, cheese, white wine vinegar, some tartness, some yeast and white grapes. Taste of green apple, white grapes, moderate tartness, subtle oak, some wild yeast and quite funky. Light, champagne like body and an oily texture. A dry, lip-smacking citrusy, tart finish. A complex, refreshing, tart beer. Got better the more I drank. The best geuze I’ve tasted so far.

CraftBeerNick (1258) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle in garden, 13th June 15. Pours a rich sparkly beer. Aroma is sour grapes, straw, barn yard. Taste is refreshing, slight sour, some mellow notes, lemon, slight yeast. Good carbonation. This is good, and if I hadn’t just had Black Label from Girardin, I may have upped the score. The Black Label beats this for me.
