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.

Potente y sorprendente con mucha acidez. Destacan las notas aromáticas a fruta ácida como limón y pomelo, junto con algunos matices a manzana, de ahí que se descubra en el fondo un toque asidrado De cuerpo de ligero a medio, es una cerveza increíblemente ácida, a lo que ayuda un grado de carbónico acentuado.

jphartley (17) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2014
750 ml Bottle (bottled in December 2013) Very lively spilling out of the bottle, pours with a big head. Aroma complex. Not very nice at first but after it had been open for a while it got very nice. Tending towards sweetish aroma. Flavor: Complex. Acid, sweet, oak. Well balanced. A great beer, that gets better the more you drink of it.

Pours a light hazy gold with a big head. Aroma of dry white wine, oak, funk, hay and earth. Taste is very dry, light and funky, musty notes, oak and a ton of funk. Really solid.

john-hansen (20) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2014
It pours a hazy, light amber-orange with a large white head. The nose is full of barnyard funk with a little stone fruit thrown in. Bracingly sour on the back end with a very dry finish. Light on the tongue with abundant carbonation.

Smells like a barn. But a barn I want to live in. Tart and funky and hay and deliciousness. Drink this.

hohops (320) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Appearance- plenty of fizz as the cork comes off, orangey/amber in colour, hazy, a big foamy pure white head- three fingers- which gradually settles down. Aroma- loads of sour fruit, tart fruit, gooseberry juice, straw, dank, heavy vinous notes, tropical fruit, cherry hints. You can smell this one from across the room. Taste- big hit of tart fruit, sweet and sour almost at the same time, apple, pineapple hints, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, vinous, starts tart and sour, finishes with a clinging sweetness. Yeasty undertones. Packed full of juiciness and flavour, amazing.

Luk_ (197) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Vintage 2001, on tap at 3F’s restaurant. Pours a beautiful blond with a sick rocky head. Aroma is dusty attic, barnyard and cheese. Taste is lingering citric tartness, bugs, leather, soured wheat, lemon and lactic sourness. Highly carbonation and dry. Balance is perfect, old 3F gueuze at its best.
