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.

375 green bottle, corked. Green label. Bottled on 03/11/21. A very carbonated bottle, one of the loudest cork pops I’ve heard in 10yrs of opening Belgian beers... had a full turn left on the cage when it decided to go, no idea where the cork ended up, the cage came down 3 seconds later. It pours golden with haze. Huge nosiy head upon first pour. It dies down to an even covering of fine bubbles, more head retention that I’ve seen from most geuzes. Tart nose, lemons, green apples, assorted funk. Big sourness in the mouth, notes of lemons, white grapes, grapefruits. Dry and quenching finish, oaky, touches of straw. Sour lemony aftertaste on the lips. Very bubbly, tingly on the tongue. Highly satisfying.

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.

dodskenta (91) - Rönninge, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2015
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.
