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.

john-hansen (20) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2014
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. Bracingly sour on the back end with a very dry finish. Light on the tongue with abundant carbonation.

Smells like a barn. But a barn I want to live in. Tart and funky and hay and deliciousness. Drink this.

hohops (365) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Appearance- plenty of fizz as the cork comes off, orangey/amber in colour, hazy, a big foamy pure white head- three fingers- which gradually settles down. Aroma- loads of sour fruit, tart fruit, gooseberry juice, straw, dank, heavy vinous notes, tropical fruit, cherry hints. You can smell this one from across the room. Taste- big hit of tart fruit, sweet and sour almost at the same time, apple, pineapple hints, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, vinous, starts tart and sour, finishes with a clinging sweetness. Yeasty undertones. Packed full of juiciness and flavour, amazing.

Luk_ (209) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Vintage 2001, on tap at 3F’s restaurant. Pours a beautiful blond with a sick rocky head. Aroma is dusty attic, barnyard and cheese. Taste is lingering citric tartness, bugs, leather, soured wheat, lemon and lactic sourness. Highly carbonation and dry. Balance is perfect, old 3F gueuze at its best.

eduardovl (964) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
750ml bottle served in a Kriek Flute glass. A: Pours a nice orange clear color forming a huge white to yellow head. Medium retention. The head never disappears, actually and tons of lacings left in the glass. Body is very carbonated and bubbled S: Lambic like in the nose. VERY fruity and tart. Notes of apples, white grapes and pears. Sweet grains, Lambic yeasts, a little bit metallic T: Absolutely great. Amazingly smooth Geuze. Very well balanced sweetness/sourness. Upfront is sweet grains. Again, very fruity with notes of apples and white grapes. Bit metallic. End is intense Lambic yeasts M: Light body, high carbonation. Such a pleasure. This is what call a perfect mouthfeel O: Excellent drinkability. Perfect Geuze! [ BA Review @ 7/7/2012 ]

stravale (2280) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle at Salthouse, Galway. Cheers to thelynchfella for sharing this! [250914]
Golden, soft haze, dense bubbly white head
Aroma - soft sour, light fruits, light wood, usual funky notes, soft, well balanced
Taste - soft funky, nice lactic sour fruits, old lemon, quite complex
Palate - very soft carb, soft creamy, nice soft texture, initial sourness on palate is not aggressive, tartness just right. Finish is quite dry
Overall - One of the most well balanced geuzes I’ve had. No harshness. Very good
