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.

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, - JUN 12, 2013
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep gold, with a medium white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves a little lace. The aroma has a fair bit of sourness, along with leather, oak, riesling and raspberry notes. It is potently sour up front, with lime and apple skin notes. Leathery, oaky flavours come in at the mid-palate, with a touch of raspberry freshness. More sourness at the finish brings in lime and tart apple. This is an excellent gueuze. Its potent, lasting sourness gives it great drive, but it has plenty of substance to back that sourness. Very enjoyable indeed.

Cimbasso (691) - - 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 (154) - 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.

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 (2649) - 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.

ninecats (466) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
Sample at En Öl- och Whiskymässa, 2016. Hazy dark yellow, minimal to no white head. Aroma is fruity and sour, apples, oranges, hay, soft funkiness, slight vinegar. Taste is sour to lightly tart, citrus, green apples and also some sweet flavours, orange like, leaving a slight juicy feeling with a dry finish. Overall soft and drinkable, medium body, low carbo.

Acid303 (665) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JUL 1, 2016
37.5 Bottle @ Lambicus. Pours golden with small white lasting head. Both aroma and taste are green apples, caramel, and lemon. It is not very sour on the aftertaste, very easy going and highly recommended for those who start drinking stuff like this. After a few minutes is when this brew shows its real potential. Body is medium, carbonation is perfect. Very good one!

ArtificialCyst (413) - Szczecin, POLAND - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle from Elysium. Very balanced geuze, very fruity, sourness on a high level but no vinegar notes at all, lot of funk, bit of light herbal biterness somewhere. Color is golden, head after a while none. Great finish - anstringent and dry, high carbonation, body medium.

andrei79 (31) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2016
One of the best gueuze’s I’ve had. Big carbonation, makes a nice white foam that goes down quick. Smells like stright funk. Taste is fruit, citrus sour and funk. Subtle bitter funk finish. Funk all the way!
