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.

mverity (294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Pours a hazy grapefruit orange color with a fair amount of egg shell head that faded fairly quickly. No legs and light lacing. Good thin collar. Aroma is very much like when I would march in my highschool homecoming parade and the floats were all covered in straw. I also pick up some lemon and grapefruit. The flavor provile is very citrusy tart up front, then some dry grass. Nice silty mouthfeel, very dry, and that tartness stings the tongue. Very glad I got to try this, but I wouldn’t put it in my top 5, maybe not in the top 10.

chris__hartley (306) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2015
It pours hazy gold with straw highlights; the head is off white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: hay, horse barn, sulfur, boiled eggs, toasted barley, and oat bran. The taste is super heavy sour and lightly bitter; there are notes of: lemon juice, horse barn, oat bran, and black vinegar (chikiang vinegar). The palate is full bodied and has medium carbonation, with a long finish. Overall, buckle up bitches it’s going to be a bumpy ride - thoroughly complex.

alkolas510 (849) - Vänersborg, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2015
Pilsnerfärgad med stort vit skum. Doftar och smakar som en suröl ska göra men lite "fegt"! Riktigt bra iaf!

BeergeekKorea (18) - SOUTH KOREA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle 375mL. Typical hazy orange colour and little head. Beautiful strong sour aroma of the yeasts and so leathery. Runs deep sour and puckery tastes with subtle that of hay, balanced. Finishes a lot of complex skunky flavour above the ABV amusing in mouth.

chromeotaphor (100) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle datum 17/10/2013. Diep zurig cremig rood donker aroma. Klein bubbelachtig (cava achtig) schuimkraag dat snel weg trekt, mooi helder. Diep warme felle zuurtegraad aanwezig. Heerlijk citrus achtig, vettige dikke smaak in de afdronk maar ook droog.

Towey1989 (522) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber colour with a thick fizzy white head. Aroma of green apple, barnyard, cheese, white wine vinegar, some tartness, some yeast and white grapes. Taste of green apple, white grapes, moderate tartness, subtle oak, some wild yeast and quite funky. Light, champagne like body and an oily texture. A dry, lip-smacking citrusy, tart finish. A complex, refreshing, tart beer. Got better the more I drank. The best geuze I’ve tasted so far.
