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.

minutemat (1266) - 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.

la mia prima 3 fonteinen, un vero capolavoro questa birra, l’acidità forte e il gusto che rimane persistente la rendono una geuze perfetta

seynie (129) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2014
Pale yellow with a quickly disappearing head. Lemon peel, other citrus fruit but also wood and earthen notes. Very balanced and not as sour as the lesser geuzes, top notch. Medium body, lively, long finish.

Martin243 (740) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
37.5 ml bottle at home. Served in a Hoegaarden shaker. Pale yellow haze with a lively white head that soon calms down to a white skim. Very lively carbonation. Sweaty cheesy aroma. Dry, acidic, tart apple, young hard cheese, yeast and pickled lemon flavour. Light body thin texture, fizzy. Astringent finish. Yapped around my taste buds like the beer equivalent of an overwrought Jack Russell. Have a go!
