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 at North Bar. Rating #300! Chess to Erin and Will for helping me decide. Pours a orange gold, small head. Aroma is classic gueuze - grapefruit, horse blanket, straw, but with a lovely redcurrant/raspberry thing going on. Taste is similar - upfront sherbet giving way to grapefruit/lemon tartness, straw/grass notes, and a lovely sour grapefruit finish that pickers and lingers for years (and turns a bit mandarin-ish while its at it). Not as puckering as a Cantillon, but more four than a Mariage Parfait or a Cuvee Rene. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Gueuzey yumminess. Mmmm.

Dark orange colour, decent head, lively carbonation. Amazing aroma: banana, flowers, fruits, barnyard funk. Dry, fruity, complex. Overall: great stuff, try pairing with seafood and salads.

2012 bottle. Pours clear golden the head is white and really fast to go down. Looks like a cider. The brett is strong in this one! Funky barnyard on the nose, berries, grape, oak, bit of manure as well. Dry flavour, vinous, oak, brett is strong, tart lemons, some peach, some biscuits, no where as sour as it is fresh, it has mellowed out nicely. Light to medium body and big saison like carbonation. I really like this gueuze and I?m glad I have another one ageing.
