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.

Pours a cloudy peachish color. Aroma and taste are first sweet with sourness coming out.

edsspoon (729) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle - hazy amber with a thin light brown head which quickly fades away. Aroma of apples, spice and hay. Taste of apples, followed by sourness, some yeast and spice. Quite tarte, sweet honey to finish. Incredibly well balanced. Medium body, low carbonation.

anstei (237) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 22, 2015
375ml bottle. A geuze to my taste, but I think it could be more balanced. Not so fond of the palate, a bit too aggressive.

fellebag (1089) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle 375ml. Big noisy head settling. Hazy orange fruit juice color. Aroma is green leaves, tea, yeast, cabbage, pear, sour mix. Taste is stingy sour. Feels like a young and fresh champagne. Dry in the after.

Franckg (394) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 18, 2015
Bouteille datée de 2013. Bue après 1 an. Fort arômes de citron et pomme verte. En bouche, c’est très acidulé et l’amertume continue sur cette voie. Bonne présence de chêne en bouche.

McWorta (839) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 13, 2015
Light hazy solidly golden colour with a frothy white head and excellent lacings. Aromas of ripe vintage apple and pear notes develop with subtle notes of barnyard/basement and wetearth aromas develop. Nice effervescence with a light texture and a medium body open the scene for a fruity sourness with notes of light acidity moving forward to a somewhat slick sweetness. Lasting finish, nice and harmonic gueuze.

HippyHop (410) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2015
375ml bottle from a nearby pub. Pour is pale gold with a thin, fizzy white cap. Nose is tart and musty: lots of vinous acidity, lemon, wheat, oak, hay, and funky/musty/barnyard yeast aromas. Taste-wise it has this great champagne body, but with citric tartness, slight wheat, leading into pungent, musty wild yeast flavours, with a tart, sour finish. Each sip of this stuff is like its own little journey. Awesome stuff.

Erzengel (5082) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2015
Nice sour horse blanket nose. The beer starts smooth and fresh sour. Nice fresh intense horse blanket, full body, round, a bit sharp. Nice sour body. Great and smooth, sourish-dry and very funky aftertaste.

fkoolen (515) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2015
37,5cl corked bottle at home, bottling date 30/10/2013. Almost transparent golden ale, slim foamy white head. Tard and musty nose and taste, vinegar-like acidity, citrus and grapefruit, sour white grapes, barnyard funk, light malty base. Long aftertaste, dry finish. Prickly carbonation and mouthfeel, good body. Sediment sweetens the geuze and adds some fruitiness.
