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.

Reviewed 12/31/2012. Thanks to Momar42 for all three gueuzes (and the kriek surprise afterwards!) This was part of the gueuze showdown, pitting Tilquinís gueuze against the juggernaut duo known as Cantillon Gueuze and Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze. Part of a 750mL bottle poured into a Cantillon tulip. Notes from last nightís Skins/Cowboys game. A: Pours a hazy copper color, with a dinky half finger white head. Meh. S: Now this is more like it. Iíd surmise this is the funkiest of the three, coming across almost like a moldy, stank-ass cheese (in a good way). Sourness is subdued compared to the others, but the grape presence comes across more brightly. T: The opening flavor is a subtle, pleasant sourness. Afterwards comes lots of earthy, hay-like funk (and stank-ass cheese) to finish the flavor profile off. Thereís a real complexity here thatís hard to place, but still keeps the palate guessing brilliantly. M: The delicacy and softness of the palate feel are simply to die for. Everything - from the dry finish to the carbonation - is perfectly measured. Super drinkable, period. O: This was a narrow second place finisher - and a damn close finish at that - but at the same token, this is the only one where Iíd attempt to finish an entire large-format bottle solo. Refreshing, easy to drink, and challenging all at the same time.

gyhallmanti (274) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2016
75cl bottle split thanks to SimonBlok. Pours a hazy orange colour with a big white head which recedes to a layer on top. Aroma of dust, apple, grapes, lemon. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, fairly sour with a jaw cringing and mouthwatering finish. Notes of leather, something i can only distiguish as royal club bitter lemon, citrus, apple, light caramel. Texture is sticky, medium to light bodied with medium carbonation.

ctipping (1276) - Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2016
375 mL bottle. Bottled 11/18/2010. Originally reviewed 9/5/2011. As soon as the cage was untwisted, the cork shot out of the top and hit the ceiling. Nice. Golden straw body with lively bubbles. Huge head that almost overflows my glass. The head is also lively and eventually dies down to a nice pillow of foam. Perfect look for a beer. Smell has tons of funk. Definitely more prevalent than the sour smells, which are hardly present. The tartness is more of an acidity that pierces through the funky hay smells. Taste is much like the aroma, the tartness is not on display. Itís the funk. Great grassy and woody flavors intermingled with acidic sourness. The finish has a peppery oak finish that comes off as the slightest bit bitter. A little heavy fresh, considering how effervescent the flavors are. Not really dry at all, which is what I expected. Strong carbonation, which does help alleviate the weight of the beer. With some age, this beer dries out, cutting much of the sweetness. Complex and playful. I would drink this over nearly any gueuze out there. The more I drink it, the more I appreciate its quality.

Cimbasso (710) - - JUL 23, 2016
Bottle from Utobeer. Hazy orange gold colour with a white head. Aroma of apples, vinegar and wheat. The taste is tart and is of apples, vinegar, red pepper and metal polish. There is a lively, spritzy sensation on the tongue. A complex and interesting beer which is very pleasant and refreshing to drink. A very good Geuze.

jakubwloszcz (168) - Piastůw, POLAND - JUL 20, 2016
Barwa złocista, lekko zamglona. Świetna piana, długo się utrzymuje, ogůlnie piwo prezentuje się rewelacyjnie. Aromat bardzo intensywny, rześki, kwaśny, czuć niedojrzałe winogrona, jabłka, są też nuty stajni. W smaku jest bardzo owocowe, kwaśność jest duża, nadal czuć nuty dzikie. Wysycenie jest wysokie, w ustach zostaje lekko słodki, cytrusowy posmak. Świetne geuze.

RodeaGueuze (11) - - JUL 19, 2016
Pours a deep rich honey gold. With white head. Some cheese funk, red pepper spice, and cidery aroma. A little sweet red peppers up front, some mild apple cider character, some sour/tart hay. Itís not too harsh or acidic. Itís a touch citrusy. Actually, very pleasant to drink in that itís a little light. In some ways, it reminds me of a less harsh Iris. Itís a little thin too. Thereís a faint bitterness. Lots of things going on. Iím not sure this is my favorite gueuze, but itís still solid.
