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.

Aroma of barnyard, yeast, tart grapes and apples, brett, oak. Flavour is sour. Carbonation is very high,champagne-like. This is a remarkably balanced gueuze. Wow.

impressive lambic. strong aroma that lets you know it is going to be good an sour. the taste does not let you down, it is mouth puckeringly good. so many flavors in the sourness that i was not prepared and can not describe them all. My favorite Geuze.

NeuroPliny (143) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
355 cc bottle shared with JB. Pours cloudy amber with a large but quickly fading off white head. Aroma is sour grape skin, hay, apple, and citrus. Flavour is barnyard yeast, funk, grape skin, sour yeast, with an astringent tart finish. Wonderful champagne fizzy mouthfeel with heavy carbonation. I love this lambic!

330ml bottle poured into tulip during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood Seal Beach. Yellow-orange hazy body with tall fizzy white head that settles to a film. Aroma is tart grapes, sour apple, wet grass, barnyard, wood, and a touch of tropical/citrus sweetness. Taste is moderately tart with the green apple and sour grapes carrying the way. There is a good level of funky yeast and a touch of both woody bitterness and powdered sugar sweetness. Light body, thin texture, high carbonation, tart dry finish.

Ambro206 (111) - ITALY - APR 29, 2014
Nonostante questa sia una gueuze e non una lambic l’acidità è decisamente troppo elevata e prevaricante. In bocca risulta leggermente piatta e il retrogusto è estremamente corto.

Bretteux (173) - Ste-Julie, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2014
Une couleur des bien doré,un col blanc qui demeure,sa mousse s’accroche aux parois et c’est bulles sont grosses et très nombreuses.Au nez,des odeurs de ferme,le foin,la paille,les levures sauvages,la poussière de terre et un petit quelque-chose de fruité.Au goût,on ne peut s’attendre à mieux,elle est à hauteur.Une douceur à l’entré,suivi de son goût surette (acidulé)des bulles qui travaille bien et d’une fin bien sèche qui nous redemande une autre gorgé.Une grande gueuze que j’aimerais bien déguster à nouveau !

Oude Geuze? More like Old Grease. This is an old log that I’m filling in so I do not remember the specifics of the tasting.
