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.

Hallstein (260) - Skogn, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2015
Color is orange with tons of nice carbonation rising up the glass. Aromas of orange rind, bubblegum, sour candy, with dampened notes of vanilla and oak. Flavor is nice, sour and very dry with spicy flavors of apple skin, unripe apples and kiwi with a very dry finish with some slight breadiness to it. I’d say this is one of the best geuzes i have been fortunate enough to try. Enjoyed at home with my brother @Haavard

Bottle from MOMH. Hazy orange, big white head. Some dry grass and hay in the aroma, soft lemon rind. High carbonation, lively. Sour, lemon acid. Slightly minerally, lots of layers of sourness and complexity. Bone dry. Classic.

One of my favorite gueuze. With a lot of complexity and less acid than a cantillon. Very smooth.

Botella.color ambar claro opaco. Espuma blanca de buena formacion, fina y chispeante. Jejeje. Aromas frutales, madera, sidra, masa de pan, compleja. En boca la textura es aceitosa, cremosa la carbonation viva. Acida en principio para pasar a un punto un dulce y final astringente, en boca muy compleja, presentes los aromas pero potenciados. Equilibrada a tope. Final astringente muy muy largo. Demasiadovirgen para decir algo mas de esto.... Birroteeeee
