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.

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

Prufrockstar (1145) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle, shared by Caleb last August. From notes: Cloudy gold; white head; tons of funk. Musty, cheesy, horse blanket, lots of fruit. Taste brings toasted cereal as well. This is great. Really lovely. Would love to have a 750 all to myself.

mgajdaczewa (605) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 9, 2014
W aromacie dzikie, jest winogron, dość wyraźnie zaznaczona słodowość, nutka orzechów włoskich, całość sprawia raczej słodkie wrażenie. W smaku już wytrawne, kwasek i dzikość, wyraźna kontra słodowa, przez co kwasek jest krótki, sporo winogronowej owocowości, goryczka lekko pestkowa, na finiszu kwasek niczym z soku grejpfrutowego. Bardzo pijalne, zbalansowane, świetny lambic, choć piłem znacznie lepsze.

slowrunner77 (6090) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 4, 2014
"easily best of style for the first 4 i’ve had, but i’m still not a believer. the aroma was a little too much stinky cheese-man for my liking, but the fruity sour aspects aside that were nice enough. effervescent head and tingly carbonation fit the beer and the flavor, which had all the positive puckeringly lemony sour aspects of the flavor without the cheese funk. for the price, no need to revisit."

SinH4 (274) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 4, 2014
0.75l bottle, bottled April 27th, 2010. Orange-golden color with small head. Great barnyard/hay feeling, a bit of lemon and gooseberries maybe. The taste is nice lemony, fruity, sour and dry, but not as extremely sour and dry as a Cantillon for instance. The finish is rather short though. Very good and easier to drink as you?d expect.

Filled the table with smell when opened! Smells like Bassets wine gums, elderberry and the usual hay. Taste is more saison than geuze that I'm used to. Still very nice. Sour, a little sweet in the end and bitter hops. Absolutely nice.

Bottle (that blew up all over my carpet) to goblet Vinegar, lemon, apple cider, yeast, and syrup. Cloudy amber with a thin, but long lasting creamy head. Funk, funk, funk, tart, tart, tart, crabapple, and pear. This is quite dry and mouth puckering.
