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.

Poured from bottle into a tulip. Pours hazy straw color with a big foamy white head. Aroma of funk, sour notes, and fruit. Taste is clean but perfect amounts of tart, light fruit notes, and just the right amount of funk. Awesome beer.

Crisp, clean, controlled funk, tart more than sour. Some apple, dry white wine. Delicious.

Questa si che è una gueuze come si deve. Sarà anche un blend ok, ma è favoloso. Inutile scrivere una descrizione. Da bere immediatamente!

Achel (349) - Ioannina, GREECE - JAN 30, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2016 A wild wild orgy of brettanomyces lactobacillus pediococcus and acetobacter. They are all here wearing unmalted wheat, at a large wooden barrel. (Chestnut or oat). A well balanced acrobatic of a spontaneous fermentation. Quite strong combination of hardcore, funky, sour gueuze with smooth maltiness and hint of sweetness in the finish makes this the most quaffable of the ’oude’ gueuzes.I have another bottle and i am planning to drink it at 10 years.

onceblind (6914) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Slightly hazy copper with a funky grassy and gym sock nose with a funky herbal and Belgian olde aroma. Smooth and quaffable body with some Belgian funk, a little juiciness, a light sour backround, and a kiss of guava. Lovely.

nerdboy19 (171) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - JAN 13, 2016
Nice geuze with moderate sourness and brett. Medium bodied, sour, lemon, barnyard. I prefer Cantillon to this beer.

McDef85 (37) - ITALY - JAN 13, 2016
Complessità di aromi, citrico, acetico, fruttato, rose, cuoio, legno. Forte astringenza, lunghissimo retrogusto. Lascia il palato del tutto pulito.

Westchesterco (1790) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Poured from a bottle it is a cloudy latte color with no head. The aroma is sour and the taste is sour green apples with a pepper finish that goes into a strong citrus ending Interesting flavors

DandyWolfFloyd (1017) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Aroma - barnyard, cheese, sweaty horse, lactic acid. It’s all here and it’s funky as hell. Appearance - clean clear gold, nice nucleation. Head is white and starts about 2 1/2" and foamy slowly settles. Taste - great sour taste - a little bit of everything wild. A little bit of sweaty horse blanket, high end cheese elements, white flesh fruit. This is something else. A bit of Champagne. That is incredible. Some flavors you associate with the smell of sauteed habaneros. Not that it’s spicey in any way, it’s the sort of taste you associate with the smell when they are cooking. Hard to explain, but really enjoyable. Palate - the body is on the lighter side, texture dry, carbonation is lively, the finish dry and has just a funk-a-delic delight!

butelka, warka z 20-11-2014 (ciut ponad rok od rozlewu). lekko metnawe, jasne, z nieimponujaca piana. aromaty od razu kwaskowate i dziko-stajenno-skorzane. sa owoce (hmmm... niedojrzale winogrona? cytryna? kwasne jablka?). caly czas jednoznaczna dzikosc sie paleta. w ustach dosc wytrawnie, mocno kwasno (troszke az czuc sztywnienie jezyka), a la swiezo wycisniety sok z cytryny. robi wrazenie. milosnikiem nijak nie bede, ale czasem trzeba sprobowac :)
