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.

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 :)

kajser27 (1195) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 4, 2016
Hazy, orange colored, non lasting small white head. Aroma is of some caramel, fruits, apple, some herbal notes, sulphury, wild, quite sour nose. Taste is low+ sweet malt, some fruits, apple, wild, medium- herbal bitterness, yeast, astringent, dry and acidic finish, very strong sourness. Medium- bodied, lively carbonation, spritzy. Too sour for me, overpowers everything else.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - DEC 28, 2015
37,5 cl corked bottle. Hazy golden with an average bubbly head. Aroma is very gueuze typical, even funkier than other geuzes can be, apples, a light acetone note. Moderately dry and sour, more bitter than most geuzes. Average carbonation, medium bodied. A palate that is rather full. Very good traditional geuze.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle from JefVerstraete, thanks! Peppery phenolic, horseblanket, unripe plum, tart notes already in the aroma. Car fumes as well (!). As it gets warmer, it resembles more and more a horse blanket covered with pepper. It is quite bitter for a lambic and the finish is so dry that it literally begs for another sip to wash down the dryness. Which in effect intensifies. Complex thirst quencher.

Guruhso (361) - Grindsted, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle. Yeasty aroma of barnyard. In mouth aroma of citrus, acetic acid, fresh fruit and Brett also comes thru. The body is medium and the texture is thin. The carbonation is fizzy. The flavour is slightly sweet at first but then becomes very sour and finish dry.
