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!

Old notes. It’s the best Geuze I’ve ever drunk! I bought it in Bruugge’s beer shop not far from our hostel. And I’ve tasted this from tourist rubber folding glass and tried to make cooler under cold water in hostel. And this was really nice aged sour beer!

Bottle. Smell is acid and bacon. Trite to say that it primarilly tastes like gueuze. Main characteristic is green apple but you get the barnyard and phenolic traits too. Fruity, fresh and super zingy. Lovely moussy champagne carbonation. I just wanted a bit more musty funkiness. Working my way through the main examples of this style and Cantillon still tops the table for me.

Poured from bottle into a tulip. Pours hazy straw color with a big foamy white head. Aroma of funk, sour notes, and fruit. Taste is clean but perfect amounts of tart, light fruit notes, and just the right amount of funk. Awesome beer.

Crisp, clean, controlled funk, tart more than sour. Some apple, dry white wine. Delicious.

Questa si che è una gueuze come si deve. Sarà anche un blend ok, ma è favoloso. Inutile scrivere una descrizione. Da bere immediatamente!

Achel (306) - Ioannina, GREECE - JAN 30, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2016 A wild wild orgy of brettanomyces lactobacillus pediococcus and acetobacter. They are all here wearing unmalted wheat, at a large wooden barrel. (Chestnut or oat). A well balanced acrobatic of a spontaneous fermentation. Quite strong combination of hardcore, funky, sour gueuze with smooth maltiness and hint of sweetness in the finish makes this the most quaffable of the ’oude’ gueuzes.I have another bottle and i am planning to drink it at 10 years.

onceblind (6377) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Slightly hazy copper with a funky grassy and gym sock nose with a funky herbal and Belgian olde aroma. Smooth and quaffable body with some Belgian funk, a little juiciness, a light sour backround, and a kiss of guava. Lovely.

Nice geuze with moderate sourness and brett. Medium bodied, sour, lemon, barnyard. I prefer Cantillon to this beer.

McDef85 (34) - ITALY - JAN 13, 2016
Complessità di aromi, citrico, acetico, fruttato, rose, cuoio, legno. Forte astringenza, lunghissimo retrogusto. Lascia il palato del tutto pulito.

Westchesterco (1612) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Poured from a bottle it is a cloudy latte color with no head. The aroma is sour and the taste is sour green apples with a pepper finish that goes into a strong citrus ending Interesting flavors
