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.

Gueze Year Eve! First beer of the 2014! Grainy brown pour with huge fluffy off white head. Lots of funky baby diaper aroma, wet blanket hay, lemon, and saw dust. gritty mouth feel. Taste is sour funk barnyard with lemon, grass, and oak with touches of smoke and leather. Finished dry and tart with some tannic qualities. the gritty mouth feel through it a bit off but the flavor was really good.

Es lambic i costa asimilar el seu gust. Sembla una sidra de gust i de aroma. Dificil de asimilar. Et deixa tot elbouquet al paladar i la llengua. Cada cop mes interesant com la probes

Slight bubble gum aroma, some lemon and general citrus. Taste is sour more than tart lemon. Slight acidity but not overboard, velvety mouthfeel with some spiky carbonation. Great beer.

Pours a hazy grapefruit orange color with a fair amount of egg shell head that faded fairly quickly. No legs and light lacing. Good thin collar. Aroma is very much like when I would march in my highschool homecoming parade and the floats were all covered in straw. I also pick up some lemon and grapefruit. The flavor provile is very citrusy tart up front, then some dry grass. Nice silty mouthfeel, very dry, and that tartness stings the tongue. Very glad I got to try this, but I wouldn’t put it in my top 5, maybe not in the top 10.

Bottle @ Yulli's, Surry Hills. Wow! Murky lemon colour with a very thin, fine bodied head. Immediate aromas of funk, barn yard, lemon juice and a touch of grass. The tartness of lemon juice is the immediate flavour and then the complexity of the beer comes to the fore with stone fruit, grass, new season sour granny smith apples, wet hay and some really cool funky business. I'm new to geuze and I'm hooked!

Pure Geuze! Nez très spécial, citron, chaussette sales. Long palais, acide, fruité. Peut-etre un peu jeune (2013). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ home. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is funky, dank, tart, lemon. Flavor is tart, funky, oaky, dry finish. Very, very nice.

Straw pour with huge head that quickly dissipates. Cheesy, barnyard, musty funk characters on the nose with slight hints of pear (Lambrini!) Incredibly dry all the way through, with a funky acidity lingering on the back of the tongue. Thin body, but loads of incredibly soft carbonation.

2012, Dec 5th - 1 year age: Bright gold color with large fluffy white head, big bubbles, and insane raging carbonation that looks amazing. Aroma is rich, dank, wet, and yeasty with light fruit notes and a bit of alcohol that tingles my nose. Flavor has intense tartness, full flavored, with nice blend of citrus, smooth malt and spicy yeasts. Very expensive, but nothing else like it.
