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.

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 (1020) - 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 :)

kajser27 (1271) - 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.

MonsterMagnet (1116) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle, pours hazy yellow with a white head. Acidic aroma, but fairly mild, with gooseberry, lemon, barnyard funk. Taste follows with wood, apple, bit of peach. Nice balance between sour and bitter, full flavoured but mild. Very nice.
