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.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 16, 2010

Source:750 mL bottle split during a massive beer weekend.
Glass:DFH goblet.
Appearance:Hazy to cloudy orange pour with a small but lasting white head.
Aroma:Nose was wet horse blanket, strong scent of limes, some general citrus and a whiff of bread.
Flavor:Strong lemon/lime sour flavor. The sour-pucker didn’t linger like it does with some other sours. Almost no hint of vinegar in this.
Palate:Smooth, light body with strong carbonation.
Overall:Absolutely excellent flavor, but I wouldn’t say earth shattering. I expected this to be more complex. It wasn’t bad, but it was just a few steps better than Lindemans Cuvee. Solid Gueuze, but too high a price point for a "good" beer.

Bottle. Nose is tart and lemon. And yes, barnyard. Pour us fairly cloudy with a large white head that dissipates but leaves a small later of bubbles. Taste is mostly fruit, lemon. Only slightly acidic. Doesn’t kill your chest. Very refreshing.

Where others describe the beer with words such as "old leather" "slightly funky" "wet horseblanket" or "dusty basement" and still rate this beer with great numbers is beyond me... I smell and taste these things but it just aint for me!
