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.

BlackHaddock (4875) - Shropshire, - NOV 5, 2012
Green 37.5cl bottle: best before 9th Dec 2019. Poured carefully into two old ’Home Ales’ half-pint countryman tankards on 3rd Nov 2012. Almost clear old gold to new golden in colour, no real head to talk about. The smell and taste reminded me of good quality scrumpy, cooking apples, baking powder and Bicarbonate of Soda: very acidic. I actually thought this was OK and drinkable compared to others in this style. Try as I might, this style of brewing/bottling and blending still leaves me unimpressed somewhat. I want to embrace the idea of Lambic beers and Geuze but struggle to feel the wonderous excitment other ’beer geeks’ get from having beers from this stable or other Lambic breweries.

0.375 l bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland. Cloudy golden colour, huge head. Hell, yes! This is great! Not just sour, but there is something else - some wooden flavour. Probably the fermentation barrels. The best dry gueuze so far I’ve had.

SB Lund, flaska. En vuxen konkurrent till champagne. Syrlig frisk med god beska och bra balans mellan ingående komponentrr. Drag av cider. Lite stallbacke i aromen. Mysigt. Sommaröl...

ogniskowicz (403) - POLAND - JUL 4, 2015
Aromat to cała paleta dzikusów, ale stajnia, stęchłe siano i spocony kuń zostały zepchnięte przez zapach przypominający skórkę sera pleśniowego. Do tego delikatna owocowość kojarząca się z fermentującymi jabłkami. W smaku - piękna kwaśność, ale nie tak ogromna jakiej bym się spodziewał, jest cierpko, ale całość skontrowana jest goryczką (!) - absolutnie nie chmielowego pochodzenia (znów przychodzi na myśl ser pleśniowy. Owocowość i aromaty beczkowe dopełniają całości - niebywale pijalnej i orzeźwiającej - to piwo to fantastyczne wspomożenie na takie upały jakie panują obecnie.

yourilevesque (318) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
Gueuze très rafraîchissante par cette canicule pesant sur la terrasse du Moeder Lambic. Bière orangée, très trouble et très mousseuse. Arômes très boisées et sauvages. De cuir et du bois. Je me sens à la ferme. On sent toutefois de profondes vapeurs acétique impropres à l’habituel milieu fermier. En bouche, la bière est d’une acidité remarquable et présente des arômes de pomme verte, de chêne et de brettanomyces. Excellente et franchement rafraîchissante oude gueuze!

Hazy light orange, stable airy white head. Bretty aroma, apples and notes of leather. Sour and bitter flavour, malt and lemon peel. Creamy, fluffy mouthfeel, high carbonation with a good bitter bite.

chris__hartley (315) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2015
It pours hazy gold with straw highlights; the head is off white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: hay, horse barn, sulfur, boiled eggs, toasted barley, and oat bran. The taste is super heavy sour and lightly bitter; there are notes of: lemon juice, horse barn, oat bran, and black vinegar (chikiang vinegar). The palate is full bodied and has medium carbonation, with a long finish. Overall, buckle up bitches it’s going to be a bumpy ride - thoroughly complex.

Pilsnerfärgad med stort vit skum. Doftar och smakar som en suröl ska göra men lite "fegt"! Riktigt bra iaf!

laakus (57) - Nossebro, - JUN 26, 2015
Golden brown hazy color with a big white head. Nose is fruity somewhat bananalike and also bacteric not too pleasant. Taste is very, a bit yeasty, even lightly salty with a long sour citric finish. Great aperitif .
