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 @ Cantillon. Large fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Good lacing. Light cloudy golden colour. Aroma was lovely dusty, barnyard (or like the Cantillon building aroma), tart like notes with hint of champagne, unripe fruit, vinegar, leather. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and heavy dry texture. Moderated sour notes, hint of sweetness maybe from the younger lambic that was blended in. Light dry and sour finish. This was the way to experience the Cantillon brew. Belgium 25-05-2007

375 mL corked and capped bottle purchased at Liquor Max. Pours sparkling gold with a small fizzy white head, somewhat diminishing, spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (straw, meal), average hops (grass, flowers), average yeast (barnyard, earth) with notes of grapes, green apples and cask. Light bodied, fizzy texture, lively carbonation and a bitter finish. Short duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness; fragrant tart green fruit flavor with notes of straw malt.

Trade from Ross, thanks man! Pours a rich orange color with white bubbly head that fades quickly. Very effervescent like champagne, the brewer makes the same comparison on the label and he’s 100% correct. Aroma is very sour with a slight aroma of burnt plastic, some slight apple and citrus notes which play beautifully with the intense sourness. Taste is amazing with light apple and citrus flavors, mustiness, and wood notes. Very sour with with light tartness, this beer is completely well balanced and very complex. Damn I love Cantillon.

Big lasting head. Very carbonated. Dark yellow. Zesty cheese and lemon zest aroma. Tasty piece of dirty cheese cloth taste. Cheese, lemon and salt like an unsweetened kids sour candy.

My friend tell me to drink this "Belgium" beer and I try drinking it because I like Belgium beers. But this is too light. Is this Belgium lager or Belgium Ale? I think lager it must, because of the sulfur and rubber. Why not cleaner like real Belgium beers!
