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.

Iím probably over-reacting, but this was my first taste of an ale in this style and Iím in utter love. So soft, so sour, so lip-smackingly delicious. Tart, crisp, bright and fresh; it takes the best of a home-made cider and mixes the malty complexity of grains and hops. A sour-champagne of a beer.

Iíve had a million sours now and few have inspired the joy this beer still does after 15 or 20 encounters. Light and tart and fluffy and wild and crisp and vibrant. Amazing and honestly beautiful like a Dardennes film.

minutemat (1286) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
375ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours hazy golden yellow with big foamy head, that familiar musky sour aroma coming straight out the bottle. Spritzy mouthfeel with an acidic, dry character.. green apples, lemon, funky yeast all create a sharp refreshing taste with a well-blended, tempered sourness.
