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.

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.

procraste (241) - FRANCE - OCT 3, 2015
Acidité franche et citronnée qui claque bien sur le bout de la langue. Jolie et rafraîchissante. Chouette donc même si je manque encore de recule pour juger le style ...

Golden-orange pour, tall white head. Not a lot of lace but leaves a thin cap. Pear and lemon aroma. Taste is strong citrus with an astringent sour finish. Higher carbonation. Great refreshment on a hot day.

Hoprider (204) - DENMARK - SEP 24, 2015
Pours almost clear golden orange with a large frothy head. The nose is clean with sour hay, some leather, metallic stoney notes, lemony notes but it’s all very refined and subtle. The taste is much more powerful with sour lemon zest, brett, earthy, mineral flavours. The mouthfeel is lively and the whole thing is very mouthwatering and fresh. An absolute bargain of a gueuze that does it for me every time.

MarkoNm (1804) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 14, 2015
From a bottle at Bevog 2nd anniversary. Pours a hazy orangey color, topped with a very small, almost no white head. Aroma of white wine, a bit soury and cellar quality to it - not too strong, though. Taste slightly fruity and mildly sour. Acidic finish. Very nice. Superbly drinkable and enjoyable.

Bule (1328) - California, USA - SEP 7, 2015
750ml bottle pours a pale brown color with a bit of froth. Tar aroma that takes a little to get used to. Medium sourness, and mild oakiness with some tar. Interesting beer, but very enjoyable.
