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.

Un style que je connais encore peu... Belle couleur caramel, mousse qui exclate à l’ouverture de la bouteille mais qui retourne se coucher assez rapidement. Au nez c’est citronné, avec des notes de pommes oxydées et de terre. En bouche, c’est surette mais avec une profondeur étonnante remplie de susprises. Il y a définitivement des notes terreuses, de cuir, de souffre, qui viennent rejoindre le citron ici aussi assez présent. Ce n’est pas la plus raffraichissante des gueuzes que j’ai bues jusqu’ici, ni ma préférée, mais c’est tout de même très bon et j’en boierai d’autres avec grand plaisir!

ctipping (1258) - 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. It’s 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 (709) - - 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) - Piastów, POLAND - JUL 20, 2016
Barwa złocista, lekko zamglona. Świetna piana, długo się utrzymuje, ogólnie 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. It’s not too harsh or acidic. It’s a touch citrusy. Actually, very pleasant to drink in that it’s a little light. In some ways, it reminds me of a less harsh Iris. It’s a little thin too. There’s a faint bitterness. Lots of things going on. I’m not sure this is my favorite gueuze, but it’s still solid.

heavy (2750) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 18, 2016
May ’16. A 0.375 l bottle. It poured nice, hazy orange body with medium sized head. A bit skunky leather and sour toffee aroma over typical sharp apple, even citrus fruitiness. Flavor was both sour and bitter, apple, vinegar, citrus, smoother caramel or just biscuit, with a little bit of leather and oak wood. Medium body with long, astringent finish. Pretty nice, especially the grapefruit/sour orange note, but not really a complex lambic. Expected more.
