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.

bboeckl (142) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Poured a orangish red with big foamy head. Strong sourness up front. Lots of fruits and floral form a backdrop for the sour vinegar. These would include sour apple, citrus and hibiscus. Beneath the fruits is yet another layer of maltiness-wheat and pale malts. A musty yeast theme connects all these layers. This beer is either the product of thousands of years of diligence and beer knowledge or simply the beauty of throwing together local ingredients with the natural yeast in the air and crossing fingers. What ever it is, it works.

Botella.color ambar claro opaco. Espuma blanca de buena formacion, fina y chispeante. Jejeje. Aromas frutales, madera, sidra, masa de pan, compleja. En boca la textura es aceitosa, cremosa la carbonation viva. Acida en principio para pasar a un punto un dulce y final astringente, en boca muy compleja, presentes los aromas pero potenciados. Equilibrada a tope. Final astringente muy muy largo. Demasiadovirgen para decir algo mas de esto.... Birroteeeee

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2015 Des louverture , je tombe presque k.o. demoi. je suis quebecois et jai bu beaucoup de bieres avec levures sauvages, mais ce nest en rien comparable avec cette gueuze. le côté sauvage est tellement mature et complexe... en bouche un peu vinaigré mais tres sure, laisse la bouche completement seche. Un coté animal, cuir tellement complexe et.bien executé. cest frais, sa rapelle la.menthe.. je viens de faire mon entrée dans le monde des.gueuzes, de.maniere spectaculaire!

Arôme très fort de geuze. Très bonne acidité en bouche qui est très bien dosé. Une des meilleures geuze.

edsspoon (624) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle - hazy amber with a thin light brown head which quickly fades away. Aroma of apples, spice and hay. Taste of apples, followed by sourness, some yeast and spice. Quite tarte, sweet honey to finish. Incredibly well balanced. Medium body, low carbonation.

anstei (127) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 22, 2015
375ml bottle. A geuze to my taste, but I think it could be more balanced. Not so fond of the palate, a bit too aggressive.

fellebag (1005) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle 375ml. Big noisy head settling. Hazy orange fruit juice color. Aroma is green leaves, tea, yeast, cabbage, pear, sour mix. Taste is stingy sour. Feels like a young and fresh champagne. Dry in the after.

Bouteille datée de 2013. Bue après 1 an. Fort arômes de citron et pomme verte. En bouche, c’est très acidulé et l’amertume continue sur cette voie. Bonne présence de chêne en bouche.
