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.

Bottle. Pours quite sparkling, clear golden with big white head. Aroma is light, leathery, hay, wheat, loads of white grapes, fruits and lemon. Taste has many green apples, fruit, white grapes, tart and funky, light mold. Bit watery body, high carbonation. Very well balanced and drinkable.

japi (156) - Neubrandenburg, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2016
An amber coloured beer with a huge white head. Intensive aroma with notes of leather, steel, citrus, horses and earthiness. Soury taste with notes of citrus. Long bittery and dry aftertaste. Fizzy carbonation.

Gyllengul, molnig. En del skum som lägger sig. Luktar syrligt. Härligt sur. En riktig suröl.

Old notes. It’s the best Geuze I’ve ever drunk! I bought it in Bruugge’s beer shop not far from our hostel. And I’ve tasted this from tourist rubber folding glass and tried to make cooler under cold water in hostel. And this was really nice aged sour beer!

Bottle. Smell is acid and bacon. Trite to say that it primarilly tastes like gueuze. Main characteristic is green apple but you get the barnyard and phenolic traits too. Fruity, fresh and super zingy. Lovely moussy champagne carbonation. I just wanted a bit more musty funkiness. Working my way through the main examples of this style and Cantillon still tops the table for me.

Poured from bottle into a tulip. Pours hazy straw color with a big foamy white head. Aroma of funk, sour notes, and fruit. Taste is clean but perfect amounts of tart, light fruit notes, and just the right amount of funk. Awesome beer.

Crisp, clean, controlled funk, tart more than sour. Some apple, dry white wine. Delicious.
