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.

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.

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 (412) - 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.

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.

alteregoo (922) - POLAND - SEP 4, 2016
Piana gruba, sycząca, szybko opada do zera. Barwa złota, mocno opalizująca. Aromat delikatny, głównie niedojrzałe jasne winogrona, cytryna, delikatna kiszonka, trawa, skóra, stajnia... W smaku dość kwaśne, wytrawne, powiela się wszystko z zapachu plus odrobina ziół, cierpkich owoców (pigwa?), starego drewna, octu jabłkowego. Goryczka niewielka, pestkowo taninowa. Wysycenie średnie.
Przyjemne, delikatne i ułożone, kwaśno dzikie Gueuze, bardzo stylowe, orzeźwiające, pijalne, chciałoby się wręcz powiedzieć "dostojne" - jak dla mnie super na cieplejsze letnie dni.

PotjeBier (2701) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2016
Bottle with bottling date October 2014, next to a bottle of Millennium Geuze. Hazy golden color. Creamy white head with a thin layer retention. Aroma’s: green apples, leafy hops, sour, wood, sour fruit. Flavor is rather sharp sour, fruity. Light bodied. This was much sharper and "greener" than the MG, which was mild, soft - and I liked that one more.
