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".

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2006
Bottle. Pours hazy pale orange with a white head that fades quikly. First impression of the aroma is very acidic with a tart vinegar-like sourness. And then it gets more mellow and other aromas shows through; dried fruits, sour apples and citrus. Flavor is tart and acidic. Refreshingly sour with notes of lemon, grapefruit and green apples. Lively carbonation and a super dry finish. Enjoyable and exotic.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 Bottle from Utobeer. Being new to gueuze I asked for a beginner (Timmermans) and a full on (this) to get acquainted. I was a little weary as I hated the Timmermans but, phew, this is great. Funny enough once poured looks exactly like Red Bull in the glass. Sour fruity aroma and taste, similar to champagne. Slightly salty but delicious, if this is gueuze then bring it on!

Skinnyviking (8550) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2006
Bottle. White small head. Hazy yellow body. The aroma is revealling what the flavor will be i.e. vinegear grape and a strong one as such. A lot of bitterness that lasts for quite some time in the mouth.

mtdshn (173) - Moline, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2006
A truly fascinating beer. Pours a wonderful honey golden brown with a somewhat thick and foamy head. It does have a very "farmyard" scent to it, fresh, although very organic. Flavors of sour milk, lime, sour cherry, and quite a bit of lemon aftertaste. Very nice!

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 4, 2006
The aroma had soury fermented fruit, coriander, light fruit, malts, and flowers. The beer poured a yellow color with golden orange highlights, thin lasting head and lacing. The flavor had soury fermented fruit, coriander, citurs, and flowers. The mouthfeel was light and crisp, good carbonation and a dry finish.

Pours light golden with a mostly receding white head. Aroma of leather and sour cherries. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, fairly sweet with lively carbonation.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2008 Re-rate, 1996 vintage at Bill’s Sour tasting, this beer has matured amazingly. Pours orange with a bright whtie ring. Nose is sweet and tart and orangey citrus. Taste is super funky with a lot of lingering funk, Hell Yeah. Beer 12 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 7/1/06 from the bottle at Cantillon. After the tour I was able to sample Cantillon’s most recogized brew and I was impressed. This is a very intriguing unique brew and is easy to drink and very complex in flavor.

On tap @ Maproom: A bright golden yellow color poured in its very own Cantillon glass. A fizzy dissipating ring is all there is of the head. Bringing the glass close and the sour orange and lemon nose comes although not too strong, this lets you know this will be a very nice gueze. The flavor is tart and sour with the bubbling carbonation at the tip of the tongue and moving back to the center. Oranges, oak, grapefruit, aciditicy and a little yeast balance well on the palate with out knocking you out with sourness like most guezes do. A very drinkable and enjoyable gueze.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2006
375-ml., bottled in 2003. Translucent and dirty gold in color with a thin white ice sheaf and bubbly white wrung. Aroma is tart and egregiously cynical. Souring cannons blitz with turning limejuice, footed on a bank of molded sharp white cheddar bricks. Wooden crates aromatically drip with compounded granny smiths, supercharged with bacteria. Delectable flavor sours but doesn’t surge over the top of the tart stratosphere. Liquid moves all around with infected oak playing to expired, sharp grapefruit and limejuice extremes. The tongue presses to the roof of the mouth, hoping to extract additional palate spawn. Supple carbonation meanders through the prairie park equipment shed and clings to the aging fence posts, allowing callow lily juice to adhere to the solemnly splendid sour rind performance.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2008 Bottle. Hazy orange colour with a thin white head. Sour aroma and taste with sweet notes. Good geuze.
