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. Cloudy orange with a quickly fading foamy white head. Aroma of sweet apple, hay, citrus, some orange notes and slight hint of vinegar. Some flavours of white grapes, sweet apple, citrus. Tart and acidic, slightly oily mouthfeel with high carbonation. Lovely.

Sharp tart nose, flavor of extreme tartness of lemon and sour peach. Excellent balance if oak and cellar funk! Aging this may be a great thing as well. Some wine character in the finish. Excellent!

Had a few times now but most recently alongside the Mikkeller HUES. This is a magic Geuze. Pours Gold with a White head. Incredibly tart and sour. They’re not joking about the champagne texture. Funky and sour. A very serious Geuze. It knocked the stuffing out of the HUES. I’ve got another one in the cupboard with Emma’s name on it.

Stamped on the bottle : February 6th 2014. This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden orange to yellow color. There was no head nor lacing. The smell had a sweet to bitter blend of grapefruit, slight rind, a tad of light woodiness ever so slightly as it warmed. The taste blended all of the previously mentioned characters to a slight sour but allowed a decent tart citrus fruitiness to blend really nicely. The aftertaste was subtle and had a light citrus to it. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body. If it was Summer, I probably would have pounded the whole thing within two gulps. Holy sessionable feel. The carbonation seemed to be there but felt nicely. Overall, I say this was a wonderful gueuze I would definitely love to have again.

I’m writing this as a person who isn’t a beer connaiseur at all. Living in Brussels, very close to the Cantillon brewery, I have easy access to many great beers. To me this is one of the best beers ever, superior to any Cantillon I’ve tried. Fresh, fruity tastes. Watch out for that cork, it comes flying out every time. Tons of foam, champagne like. I got a crate from 3F and drank one of these babies every day after coming home from work, after looking forward to it all day long. Pure joy.

9.8.2014. Hazy orange colour. First aroma coming from bottle reminds of sparkling wine. Aroma has also apple cider, yeast. That sour lambic smell is not good for newbie. Palate is sparkling wine style carbonated. Taste is very tart and stale with wood, leather, sour apples. This is difficult style to understand. My first real lambic, needs re-rating later.

A la biere comme a la biere, Paris: Pours orange with a fluffy head. Aroma is funky, vinegar, and some hop actually. Taste is sour and very dry. Lingering aftertaste for quite some time. Highly complex. Very interesting. I am glad I got this in Europe where it is much more affordable than it is in the US.

Bottle. Clear golden beer with a small white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of citrus, funky blanket, apricot and oranges. Flavor is spicy with notes of citrus, funky blanket, leather and grass. Well balanced.
