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.

Received in a trade from Dresden -- poured into a tulip with high frothy white head. Aroma is citrus & sour. Tasted while still cold and the tartness was subdued, sweet and citrus though. As it warmed the sour and tart popped. Very good.

Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is erg droog en zuur, blijft lang hangen. Voor mij iets te heftig.

GlasgowTAD (112) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 11, 2014
Pours with an extremely large, frothy, long lasting head which takes a few minutes to disappear. The aroma is a pleasant lemon citrus. Taste is sour, lemons and some apple notes in there. The body is very lively and you can feel the beer fizzing about on your tongue. Finish is dry and medium.

Hazy orange. White head. Minimal sediment. Aroma starts as overwhelming not reAlly pleasant funk. Pour it, and go do a 5 minute chore. You come back to a pleasant citrus funk. Taste is sour citrus funk, with a oily and tingly mouth feel. Nice.

GuernicaGsteiz (10) - - OCT 31, 2014
Potente y sorprendente con mucha acidez. Destacan las notas aromáticas a fruta ácida como limón y pomelo, junto con algunos matices a manzana, de ahí que se descubra en el fondo un toque asidrado De cuerpo de ligero a medio, es una cerveza increíblemente ácida, a lo que ayuda un grado de carbónico acentuado.

jphartley (25) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2014
750 ml Bottle (bottled in December 2013) Very lively spilling out of the bottle, pours with a big head. Aroma complex. Not very nice at first but after it had been open for a while it got very nice. Tending towards sweetish aroma. Flavor: Complex. Acid, sweet, oak. Well balanced. A great beer, that gets better the more you drink of it.

Pours a light hazy gold with a big head. Aroma of dry white wine, oak, funk, hay and earth. Taste is very dry, light and funky, musty notes, oak and a ton of funk. Really solid.
