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.

Bamsen78 (2959) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle @ Café Rose Red, Brugge. Pours slightly hazy straw with airy off-white head. Intense vinous aroma with strong dusty notes and touches of hops. Vinous flavour with notes of basement, dust and hops, as well as well-preserved fruit. Lingering, dry and vinous aftertaste. A very good Geuze!

brianza_ale (76) - ITALY - JUL 20, 2014
37,5 cl bottle in teku. Pours a small foamy dense head, bit cloudy orange colour with golden reflexes. Very pungent, funky, basement aroma, lactic, ripe apple peel, brett/wild yeasts. Tastes lactic, wet wood, acidic, a bit cidery/mature apple,and I also get some old/cheesy hops. Nearly o sweetness, almost medium bitterness and high sourness, fairly balanced. Medium to lively carbonation, medium bodied. The sips enjoyed most were the last ones. Something you can’t abslolutely understand initially, and that really needs time to develop flavours in the palate. Unique stuff, would like to try some older bottles of this non-flavoured oude 3F

HonusWagner (1331) - Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2014
I’ve had a million sours now and few have inspired the joy this beer still does after 15 or 20 encounters. Light and tart and fluffy and wild and crisp and vibrant. Amazing and honestly beautiful like a Dardennes film.

minutemat (1349) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
375ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours hazy golden yellow with big foamy head, that familiar musky sour aroma coming straight out the bottle. Spritzy mouthfeel with an acidic, dry character.. green apples, lemon, funky yeast all create a sharp refreshing taste with a well-blended, tempered sourness.
