The world's classic Gueuze. A blend of one, two, and three year-old lambics creates a second fermentation in the bottle. The champagne of Belgium. In contrast, the Lou Pepe Gueuze is a blend of three 2-year-old lambics.

Newer vintages are labeled "Organic Gueuze", "100% Lambic Bio" or "Classic Gueuze".

Bottle, 37,5 cl. Hazy orange colour with a small white head. Nose is funky with a moderate aroma of sour fruits. Acidic fruity flavour. Well balanced and very drinkable beer!

Organic Gueuze at $16 per bottle. I LOVE lambics but this is not a good value at $16 a bottle for fancy carbonated, lemon-grapefruit juice! Citrus aroma. Light golden color. Head non-existant. Nice to taste to say that I did but I would not go out of my way for another. (I’ll stick to the fruited lambics).

Bottle. Aroma was pretty bad to me; funky almost. Flavors were pretty much the same; really funky. Just didnt like it. New to the style, but still not liking this too much.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Draft at the Blind Tiger. Aroma kind of like a farmhouse/saison ale, but more earthy and funky. The flavor is sour and medicinal, and lemony. Not my favorite style.

Pours a hazey straw color with light, suspended carbonation. It smells funky and tart. The assertive flavor has sour citrus fruit and some of that lambic funk. The finish is dry and kind of refreshing.

hotstuff (4424) - Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Capped and corked bottle and bottled in 2003. Small white head that mostly diminished with no lacing, visible carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. Nose was acidic, sour, tart, fruity, funky, and grassy hops. Flavor was acidic, lightly bitter, sour, tart, fruity, and a dry finish. Mouthfeel was tingly, sour and dry. Light body.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow/orange, thin white head. Aroma of some tart fruits, lemon mostly, some funkiness too. Taste is tart and sour, more lemons come to mind. Lots of sourness. I enjoyed this.

bottle from World of Beer - I must say I enjoyed the Lindemans Bio much better - still not up with the sour tastes just yet - aroma of citrus, lemon, and a little funk, I think Manneken Pis did exactly that in this beer - just not my favorite

Pour is hazy yellow/orange. Aroma of funk, lemon, and a little bit of spice. Flavors of barnyard funk, citrus, light fruit, hay, and sourness. Quite good, even though I’m not used to lambics yet.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2007 12.7oz bottle, not sure of vintage but it reads "Classic Gueuze" in red letters with yellow label and sillouette of cantillon logo (guy falling backwards on chair). pours hazy straw with great looking head. aroma is really impressive with barnyard funk, musty, and lemon. flavor is initially tangy, pretty tart and sour, then gets musty and sorta sweet, finishes sour and dry. i could have 12oz of this every day.
