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.

Dunt (259) - Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2012
2012 vintage picked up at West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago. I was surprised to see a few of these 750’s sitting on the shelve. If nobody else wants them, I would be happy to dispose of them. Sampled in a Piraat tulip. The beer pours a light yellow-orange/peach in color with about a finger and a half worth of frothy white head. Nose is a beautiful melange of lemon, apricot, must, horse blanket, and some urine. Flavor is lemon rind, peach, must, oak, some faint bitterness, and is still moderately sweet. Once the funk takes over a bit more, the sweetness will disappear, but this blend is still a little young so it needs to sit awhile. Spritzy carbonation, almost overcarbonated honestly, gentle acidity, medium bodied, and a long finish. This has served as my favorite standard gueuze for awhile now. It is the perfect balance between bright lactic acidity and funk. Cant wait to let these 750’s sit in a dark corner of the cellar for a couple years.

Douberd (1698) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2014
Bottle 375 ml, c&c, into a tulip, ABV 6% Deep golden orange colour on the body, tall white head, froathy, with low retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Sour aroma, wood, cork, grassy old hops, a bit of funk. Very sour, some lemon, floral notes, very tasty. Medium thin body, high carbonation, moderate tartness on the palate. Overall really good.

Aroma is sour with some floral notes. Taste is a lemon sourness with some distinct wild yeast tastes. Lots of carbonation here. Thick lace head retains well.

oliodnb (131) - ITALY - APR 6, 2014
Beautiful light orange color, fluffy white head, very high carbonation. Sour smell with some yeast, some metallic notes and a very particular aroma that I cannot identify, not exactly good but definitely not bad. Sounds weird but there?s also some old cheese smell. Taste starts very acidic with a lot of lemon taste but with also a sour herbaceous note that reminds me of currant. Notes of wild yeast and damp wood. Slightly salty finish.

funky sour aroma, golden orange with a lot of carbonation, white head. Sourness not overwhelming with some nice funky character.

Cerveza muy ácida, en el primer sorbo da una sensación muy rara en la boca pero a medida que se va bebiendo va gustando mas y mas

Whatup14 (583) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
Bouteille 375ml, 2012. Couleur jaune paille trouble, mousse blanche très effervescente et fuyante. Arôme de citron, acidité, brett, paille humide, un peu terreux. Goût de pomme verte subtile, brett, cuir, bonne acidité, sèche, légère amertume en fin de bouche. Carbonatation élevée, corps moyen. Superbe.

Renobob (452) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
J’ai découvert les gueuzes avec cette bière. Et je n’aime beaucoup les gueuzes en fait... L’acidité assez violente au palais est à peu près le seul souvenir qu’elle me laisse.

Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is a dry tartness, mild yeast, citrus fruits. Flavor is potently sour, with lots of citrus sweetness. Oily palate with a delicious lingering tartness. Tasty.
