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.

CraftBeerNick (1314) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle in garden, 13th June 15. Pours a rich sparkly beer. Aroma is sour grapes, straw, barn yard. Taste is refreshing, slight sour, some mellow notes, lemon, slight yeast. Good carbonation. This is good, and if I hadn’t just had Black Label from Girardin, I may have upped the score. The Black Label beats this for me.

AtronSeige (1011) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 10, 2015
Aroma: Medium lemon, ascorbic acid. Light horse blanket. Appearance: Medium hazy copper body. Medium off-white head. Good retention. Flavour: Medium-high sourness. Medium lemon, Very Dry finish with lingering sourness. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. High carbonation. High puckering. Overall: The sourness is overpowering in the taste. It does get better (less sour) on the next sips, but it is still very sour. 375 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 17E. Gueuze

Bottle; pours cloudy gold with a slightly off white head; aroma is tart fruits, yeast, and a little funk; taste is tart with with citrus fruit notes, wood, and some hints of yeast and funk; finish is tart and dry; I have not had many of this style but so far this one is the best

Lawger (235) - SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2015
Pours a vibrant cloudy amber with off-white head. Bretty nose with stable scents, goat cheese, unripe berries and hay. The palate is tart, light to medium bodied and a medium long, acidic finish. Pretty nice. Could probably do with some ageing.

A really great Lambic. Citrus, some Brett, cocoa, lactic, wood. Tart, sour, but balanced, intense but fine perlage.

Bottle (2014) at the DC Expanded Sour Tasting. This is pretty amazing and I’m shocked I haven’t had this one yet. Wow. Poured a cloudy, orange pour with a nice fluffy off-white head. Aroma was subtle tartness, with a nice lemony zest note. There’s a bit of dust on this one, a touch of funky barn in there that produces a very intersting, highly drinkable, very complex beer. I can see why this is a gold standard of geuze.

Bottle (2014) at the DC Expanded Sour Tasting. Hazy yellow with off-white head. Aromas of barnyard funk, floral notes. Tastes of tart acidic notes, floral notes, barnyard funk. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Tried a bottle of 2004 as well, less floral and barnyard with more tart acidic notes.
