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.

bottle at home vintage 2010. amber almost clear color. very small white head. smells cherrries, wood, vanilla, very light sour notes, hints of coconut, dried fruits, plums. wow, very nice smell, was expecting more sour notes, but those are only very lightly noticeable. medium body, bubbly carbonation, slick silky mouthfeel. tastes sour, cherries, wooden notes (more subtle than on smell), some vanilla, apples. quite dry / lightly sour / fruity finish. wow, quite nice, very much liked the nose, taste almost a bit too sour for me, but overall great.

Bottle aged 1.5 years. Very sour nose of acetate, hay, pine wood, and clean finish. Leave me puckering a little bit.

Beergaard (189) - 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.

Light funk and slight oak notes on the aroma, lively carbonation on the tongue, good sour finish. A grea lambic

SarkyNorthener (2923) - 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 (579) - 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 (247) - 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 I’ve had so far.

jahshuwuh (487) - 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

Hazy yellow with medium white head. Aroma is lemon, citrus and green apple. Taste is very sour.
