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.

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.

Una delle migliori Geuze mai bevute. Buona, ottimi aromi e profumi, acida e molto dissetante.

bulldogops (2250) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 18, 2016
Rating #2138 - 2015.10.28 -Pours hazy golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma of orange peel, lemon juice, Brett, barnyard. Quite tart and juicy with a pronounced sourness - lingering acidity into the finish, unreal dry finish. Extraordinary.

hauxe (415) - Butzbach, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2016
From a bottle dated 12/2015. Less than a year old at the time of drinking. Pours golden orange. Lots of visible carbonation. Big head that fades. Apple and peach in the aroma and a hint of spice. Sour throughout. Finishes sour too. Probably should have been aged. Nice.

Hazy amber gold color with a thick frothy eggshell head. Lemon, mineral water, funk, and wood. Lightly tart, lively carbonation, and a light body. Finish is clean and short.

Shared bottle. Hazy Amber body topped by an excellent head. Very lively carbonation. Moderately funky aroma and flavor with some barnyard elements and fairly high tartness and complexity.
